"Ideas for a project"
I want to make a photo box with lights.
First I bought a shadow box.
I will need a string of lights.
Also, I will cut an image from vinyl.
The lighted shadow box will make a good gift.

"Idee per un progetto"
Voglio fare una scatola fotografica con le luci.
Per prima cosa ho comprato una scatola d'ombra.
Avrò bisogno di una serie di luci.
Inoltre, taglierò un'immagine dal vinile.
La scatola d'ombra illuminata farà un buon regalo.

"Eye of Providence"
My daughter wants a framed image of the Eye of Providence.
I found an image on the Internet.
This will work well for a vinyl cutting machine.
I'll see what I can do.

"Occhio della Provvidenza"
Mia figlia vuole un'immagine incorniciata dell'Occhio della Provvidenza.
Ho trovato un'immagine su Internet.
Funzionerà bene con una macchina da taglio in vinile.
Vedrò cosa posso fare.
