    We made super sweet easy to make stress-balls out of (2) ballons cut down and little sacks of rice. We also made cards... p.s. mine we're the best. :)

    I was so excited about this! Then I got an invitation to the Maker Fair in NC that same weekend. Have any of you all been to one? Do we ever have them in Va?

      Hey Sarah. There is an annual mini-maker faire in Hampton Roads each spring and someone from hack.rva usually goes to that. Rumor is, there will be a Maker Faire in RVA in September, made possible by the Martin Agency.
