DIY Magnet Letter Ornaments

One of my favorite things about Christmas is taking out all of our ornaments and hanging them on the tree as a family. And what better ornaments to hang than handmade ones? It doesn't have to be made from scratch to be handmade, though. Come join me over at DIY Candy for the complete how-to for these upcycled magnet letter ornaments and you'll be all set for trimming your tree! What are your favorite handmade ornaments?

Makevember is Coming!

There's a new makerspace coming to San Antonio, and this weekend they're kicking off with Makevember! Make San Antonio is a soon-to-be makerspace with a goal to foster innovation and collaboration in the San Antonio community. In an effort to demonstrate to the community what a makerspace is all about, the team at Make San Antonio has gathered local makers, creators and innovators to feature their work under one roof, and show that there is a need for a central hub for creatives to unite.

“Our idea behind Makevember is to show that there’s a thriving creative force in San Antonio, and that we need a space for people to unite and create,” says Make San Antonio co-founder Greg Reyes. “We hope to create this space with Make San Antonio. We’re working towards making our dream to create a makerspace in San Antonio a reality.”

Makevember is a free, family-friendly with kids activities from 4-6 p.m. Demonstrations and activities will be provided by The Octa-Tetra Museum, Robotics Explorer Post 42, SASTEMIC and spare parts (one of Maker Mama's best friends!). From 6 p.m. on, Make San Antonio will have live demonstrations from 10BitWorks making 3D printed made goods, Instagram San Antonio, and Corrigan “Red” Luckey demonstrating essential maintenance practices for bicyclists. Music will be provided from 6-10 p.m. by Foolish Sounds.

Are you excited and ready to go? Here are the details to get you there:

WHAT: Makevember, a day for local makers, creators and innovators to showcase their work.

WHEN: Saturday, November 22 | 4-10 p.m.

Thrift Store Finds

This post is sponsored by Goodwill SA

Daylight Savings time has ended and we've had a dip in temperature here in San Antonio; it finally feels like fall. Halloween decorations are down, and the holidays are on their way. I'm not a huge fall decorator, but I love little touches, and I found some perfect items to bring fall home on my recent trip to Goodwill. 


Halloween has come and gone! Here are a few photos from our shenanigans. How was your weekend?? I revamped my paper plate angel wings for my costume this year (and of course didn't get any other good pictures of me in them!).
