And this is what she had to say about it... She was really digging all the robots, and liked the ones that shot big flames out.
But seriously - it's like I went to sleep and woke up in a world I invented when I was six years old.
A world where the cool thing that gets an award is a fuzzy felted bunny with metal fangs eating a waffle... Am I awake?
I wish I could live at magical Maker Faire forever and cheer for the fangy bunnies. Congratulations Stab Happy owner lady - you are an amazing lady and I'm so glad I got to meet you. Congrats on your award.
Things I saw today - in no particular order:
- Clothespin people that were incredible creative. Love the gerber daisy skirt. I love clothespin people a lot and have made many.
- The most amazing Ukranian eggs. I learned how to make these today doing a "community egg"- just gorgeous and easier than you think.
- This crazy owl hat thing that I wanted to wear around. I love it so much.
- Some great handmade colorful outfits!
- A guy who does pancake juggling. No, I'm not high - he juggles pancakes. I interviewed him and he will be on my TV show - yes, I knew you wouldn't believe me.
- Crazy little monsters you could make from a kit.
- A three legged dog.
- A pit, where people were making mud with their feet. I'm super confused because I thought mud didn't need to be made, so much. I guess it's the drought. :) When I walked by the strange mud making ritual I heard a guy guessing "they must be making frog houses", at which point, I got extremely curious about what in the world THAT could possibly have meant and made a mental note to google about 8000 things related to it.
- A cool bat house, maybe two or three inches from front to back - it's about the size of a cereal box, and our crazy little bats like to stuff themselves in there, like 75 furry bats to a box. I totally wanted to get one but didn't have any money. I got a little bat ring instead. Someday I will have a bat house and it will be stuffed with hot furry bats.
- A knitted boot.
- Giant fishing lures - where in the world did they get those hooks??
- Booglie eyes all over my table when I had a Lucy moment. Oops.
- The Amazing Hancock Brothers making me some bat prints on their cool press. I love John Hancock! (yes, that's his real name!). When they were making the last print, the block broke - so I got the last print ever from it. I'm happy about that! What sweet people they are.
- A "gore cannon" that shot fake blood all over people and they walked around looking like zombies all day. The boys loved it!
- Cool bags made from bags - she actually crochets grocery bags together.
This was one of the most fun and interesting things I've ever been a part of and I'm very grateful for the experience to meet all these wonderful innovators.
