So I had this brilliant idea of making xmas presents this year. I hope if I say this again next year someone slaps some sense into me….
Still, so far the blankets are turning out lovely. I’ll snap pics this weekend (hopefully) of the two I have done. It’s stressful and tiring, but I suppose it’s worth it to give family and friends something that I made myself, especially for them. :-)
So, yeah… deck yer halls and all that. :-)
Woot! One of my fabulous librarian friends had a great idea to help inspire girls to get involved with / show their MAKER pride. It started when she and a colleague had both noticed that MAKE magazine and the MAKER community is largely identified as a guy-zone by the mainstream - right down to the magazine be shelved with the “mens magazines” at their respective local Barnes & Noble.
But girls are MAKERS too! Crafting, sewing, welding, MAKING - we do it all (of course!) So to get people to realize this - especially GIRLS who think maybe this community isn’t for them - Librarian Kate is calling for all #makergirls to snap a picture of themselves with their copy of MAKE magazine and tag & Tweet it.
Read her blog post! and snap your pic!
