Soooo, you’ve decided to give up TV (or at least cut back substantially), now what to do with all your extra free time?

For those who like to make things, Maker-Faire has a ton of ideas and inspiration.

My hubby and I, went to the May 2009 San Mateo Maker Faire, and had a very interesting (and fun) time.

Here are some photos:

    • Yes, it really was a lot of fun.
      We were there 6 hours, and we still didn’t
      have time to see everything.

      What I really liked about it too, was that
      there was such a range of people… lots
      of children, lots of artsy people,
      tech people, artsy/tech people, etc..
