When I signed up to attend Maker Faire, I wasn’t really sure what I was getting myself into. I thought it was going to be a crafty haven for girls like me. Oh wow, were we in for a surprise. There were some crazy things that were going on, including metal working, glass blowing, robot wars, catapults, an eco-car exhibit (of homemade electric cars), rocket launches, a ring of fire and I’m sure some things that I couldn’t even describe if I tried (although I might try with the pictures below). I’m thinking the best way to describe Maker Faire is a crafty carnival on some tecnological crack.
Even though we were a bit visually overloaded by the many tents (and barn) initially, Amanda, Ellie and I spent most of our fun-filled craft packed day browsing the crafty booths! There were some incredible vendors, some local, some from far away (like Portland!) but all of them had some great items or great ideas to share with us.
There were many bizarre sites to see, for example, this life size Mouse Trap (like the game you used to play when you were little?).
An of course, the interesting car redesigns. This one (The Sashimi Tabernacle Choir) had performing singing lobster and fish. They were singing Handel’s Halleluia Chorus when we walked by. (!!!)
This, is a car covered in yard. The license plate was ‘YARN’, how appropriate. The guy that owns this car was touching up the yard on the front hood. Apparently, yarn doesn’t stay put when you drive. Who knew?
Um. ? A bicycle powered. . . fish skeleton? We followed it around for a while trying to get a shot of this creation.
We met a lady adamant on educating the world about Shrinky Dink plastic. It’s really just number 6 plastic (like what your strawberries come in at the grocery store). You can use sand paper to rough up the plastic, (or not and use sharpies) and draw with colored pencils. Insert in the oven at 325 and watch closely as your creation shrinks up. Here are my earrings that I made:
And Singer had a booth were you could make a lunch bag. I was impressed with the fabric they offered and how awesome their machines were! Now I want a Singer! I’m excited to finally have a lunch bag. This will be making an appearance at work soon.
Here we are after a long, crafty day. 🙂 Fun times!
