It's been a long time since my last post, and I am still behind on posting projects and tutorials on my other blogs. I've had a super busy summer. I worked on some curriculum design and lots of fun projects! I have also started writing a book with my own curriculum, and I promise (super super promise) that I will post more details on these projects throughout October.
Honesty time, I am super new to blogging. I am still trying to figure out my own bugs and making a schedule and sticking to it for posting content. I work on a lot of big projects and I want to get into more video content in the future. A lot of the time, I am reading and learning new things. This isn't always interesting to hear about, but it is super important in order for me to do the fun things and fun projects that I do all of the time.
Coming up, I am a maker at Greater Hartford Mini Maker Faire in October of 2017.
I am also a speaker at the Connecticut Science Teacher's Association Conference in No…
Hey Makers! It's Memorial Day weekend and I have some updates for you guys.
First things first, school's out for summer. This means that I have a lot more time to work on my own projects like my business Sparks to Sparkles, and some electronics projects. For starters, I am working on sewing my own skirt right now that will light up with wearable electronics. More on this project soon.
The Healthy Planter project that I was working on was finished. It didn't work great, but it did work well enough for proof of concept. I will be posting a full guide with details on how I made the planter and the results of using it in the coming days.
All of the project that I work on this summer will have full guides made for them as well. Stay tuned. This is shaping up to be an awesome summer for making.
Never stop making!

Today a new guide is up on Maker411! This guide is something I wrote this summer to talk about starting off with electronics. It lists a bunch of my favorite circuit boards that I use all the time, plus it includes the 3D printer that I use! Take some time and check it out! It's definitely worth the read.
