MakeICT Open House Finished

I’m exhausted. We had the MakeICT open house and market, we had at least 150 people come through (I am not keeper of the stats). Between Prairie Peacock and I, we sold over $200 worth of products. Wow!

TOMORROW – MakeICT Open House

A reminder for my local readers that the MakeICT open house and market are tomorrow.

MakeICT Open House

Just one week until the MakeICT open house! Come tour our new digs and shop at the market. I’ll be there with eggs, honey, and lots of other stuff.

Goatgurt

Since I had goat milk, I figured I’d try goat yogurt. I searched around for a good sous vide recipe. I am weird about leaving it out in a cooler overnight. But a sous vide where I can micromanage the temp, I’m good!

Goat Milk 2: Snoodle Doodle Boogaloo

I found out that Elderslie Farm, the farm that produces my favorite cheese (and dinners, and blackberries, and, and, and…), started selling goat milk. It was spendy, but it’s a reliable source.

3D Printing Parts

As you know, my good friend Prairie Peacock makes fabulous soaps. One of the things that she wants to do is to be able to add shapes to her soaps. So I built her a die to fit her extruder.

Best Batch Yet

Im preparing for the summer farmers market season and a market at my makerspace. I’ve been amassing cuts of various cute calico fabric for beeswax wraps.

Dedication to the Bit

So my best friend is a bad ass. Seriously-she’s a black belt in Taekwondo. So anyway, there is a tournament about an hour and a half away from me. She and her son are competing, and I believe her husband is judging.

Christmas Presents

So, I didn’t post before, but my Christmas presents this year were kinda cool. One of the things that I like to do is pick some craft, or product, or something. So this year I had two maker spaces to choose from.

Sugar Scrub

So I was looking through a Willow and Sage magazine, and came across this recipe for a sugar scrub. It’s been almost two years since I’ve had a pedicure, so my heels are cracked as all get out. I’ll spare you the pics.
