Mad Max here ... I love to say "I do. I do." Because ... I can DO IT MY(Your)SELF.
And Mommy is also obsessed with DIY (as you remember recently from my 2nd Birthday Party). Are you obsessed with DIY too?
And this week we are talking about new beginnings ... various goals this year ... etc. One of Mommy's goals this year is also to constantly expose us to new things and to DO more DIY on our own and with us. So we found the perfect match to this combination this weekend at the Houston Mini Maker Faire.
What is your next stop this weekend?
And what is the Houston Mini Maker Faire?
Saturday, January 19, 2013
10 am - 6 pm
Maker Faire brings together families and individuals to celebrate the Do-It-Yourself (DIY) mindset and showcase all kinds of incredible projects. At Maker Faire, you’ll find arts and crafts, science and engineering, food and music, fire and water but what makes this event special is that all these interesting projects and smart, creative people belong together. They are actively and openly creating a maker culture.
In its simplest form, Maker Faire creates conversations with Makers. It is a show-and-tell format for people of all ages that brings out the “kid” in all of us. Maker Faire is a community-based learning event that inspires everyone to become a maker and connect to people and projects in their local community.
Houston Mini Maker Faire is being organized by Adil Jafry, Mike Hinkle, Jacob Shiach and the Make The Future Team.
If you live in or around Houston ... you should go check it out!
Speaking of upcoming events, don't forget that the Dad 2.0 Summit is coming to Houston in a few short weeks. Will you be there?
And finally, here I am being a maker below!
