Are you a Maker?

This past weekend Wes and I went to the Maker Faire in Kansas City. This fabulous expo is hosted in Union Station and features makers of everything from robots and electronic gizmos to bakers, crafters, and other artisans.  We managed to miss the Faire last year, but were determined to go this year.

Wes specifically wanted to see the Makerbots:


I was ready to see some crafters. Neither of us were ready for the cross between the Power Rangers and Iron Man and someone who looked like a Transformer:

We also enjoyed getting to see the Delorean (although rental doesn’t mean test drive!):

Although there were plenty of souvenir opportunities, I was a good girl and limited myself to two small things. The Maker magnet joins my growing collection at home.  The felted flower was made by my friend Christine (aka TreasureGoddess) and I’ve been wanting one for a while.
