A Fun Filled Weekend At The Maker Faire

Phew!  Ben and I are pooped from two big shows two weeks in a row!  But we had lots of fun at the second show too...the Bust Craftacular at the Maker's Faire in NYC.  We'd never been to the Maker's Faire before and until we got there I didn't even know what it was.  Ben was in heaven...because the Maker's Faire is a geeks paradise!  It's a world expo pretty much on all things technology.  There were tents and tents filled with random computer parts (it was all Greek to me).  People doing robot demonstrations and my personal favorite, the 3D Printing Village.  It was like nothing I've ever seen before. 

The Bust Craftacular was located within the Faire and offered a nice respite for all those family members who were accompanying their geeky kids or spouses and for those who wanted something to remember the event by. 

 Mr. Ghost spent the weekend with us and though we tried, we couldn't shake the worrisome expression from his face.  I think the robots disturbed him...he died in 1843 afterall...
 Mr. Octopus was right at home though.  :)

 Our friend Elena of Folkloric Jewelry shared a booth with us, which was lots of fun!!  I'm proud to say that I own several of her beautiful beaded and wireworked creations.

And Olive had the best time of all of us!  She strollered around the place quite a bit and got lots of attention from many admirers.  My the Faire came to a close, I was pushing her in the umbrella stroller back to the booth and a big burly guy was directing people and traffic and he shouted to me, "you and your gorgeous baby move to the left!"  Haha...this is a proud mama!

Sounds like it was a great weekend. I can't believe how big Olive is...and I agree with that fellow on the gorgeous baby!
