DC lighting control
I currently have available a 12V DC source and from that I want to power 3 LED strips but I want to be able to either have them all on at the same time, blink the strips in a pattern, or have them off. I have done some research into 555 timers but it looks like they wont be able to handle the current. I'm looking for some ideas on how I can implement this simply and keep it on the cheap side.

use the 555 timer to drive a transistor or relay instead of directly driving the LEDs.
