Atlanta Maker Faire 2015

This month, I participated in the Atlanta Maker Faire again as part of Oscar Eastwood (i.e. The Society of Lady Makers). With rain looming, we were a little concerned about the turn out, but everything worked out great. We had a blast helping kids make miniature light-up houses, lighthouses, and critter pins.


Some of our critter magnets, and the sign for our letter writing workshop.


A few more of our critter magnets (in 3D printed wood), and a little bit of our workspace.


This year we had a few of our zen gardens and 3D scanned designs on display for kids to play with(in). I love the way the colors looked all together.


Again this year the hot glue gun was key. We even found some great glittery gold glue to use for magnet making.


This year we even had a tropical bird weathering the storm with us at our booth.

All in all it was a great experience to see kids get excited about making. We had a few repeat visitors from last year and it was neat to hear about how they ended up using their creations after the Faire. I learned a lot about what level of detail children are interesting in learning about, and how to keep my instructions short and sweet.


Oscar Eastwood @ Maker Faire Atlanta

I was recently involved with exhibiting at the Maker Faire here in Atlanta.  I participated with a group of friends under the umbrella of Oscar Eastwood. We made and sold simple circuit kits that were custom designed laser-cut critters with a LED, coin cell battery, battery holder, and conductive thread.  It was a great experience and we loved sharing our designs with all of the kids who came by our booth. We are already planning on participating in more local creative events.

Below is my critter – Snapper.



Tonight’s the Night

Tonight is the night of the Trigger Design Show in NYC. I had a great time making my piece and it is exciting to be exhibiting with such a diverse group of talented people. I’m getting some photos taken of my piece in the space so hopefully I will have those to post soon.

Other than that work life has been crazy so I don’t have too many new designs to show you. I did get a couple of designs printed (and reprinted) lately so here is one because I can’t handle a post without a picture.

My longevity turtle printed in transparent detail plastic. This is my new favorite material for it.
