Photos: The Maker Faire 4.3.08

In case you haven't heard...the Maker Faire was STELLAR!  The Steampunks killed it!  I took my Mom (the Crafter) & my Dad (the Engineer) because I knew this would be the closest they'll ever get to experiencing what I love most about Burning Man: community, creativity and FIRE!  My Mother and Father were both so completely blown away by the event that they started planning for next year...before we got out of the gates!   And amidst all of the beautiful chaos we still managed to connect with some of my favorite Playa Peeps.  Way too much fun!

I returned to LA with tons of goodies that I scored at the event!  But the most significant thing I walked away with was inspiration.  The better part of Sunday was spent working on creative projects with my Mom.  One of which will make its American Dream debut out on the Playa this August.  Can't wait!
