Thank you Detroit Maker Faire!


It was an awesome weekend, with so many wonderful customers smiling and sharing their stories with me.  Thank you to everyone who took the time to stop by my booth, to everyone who shared their memories, or told me where my bots are already occupying their homes and offices.  I cannot express how much joy it brings me to know that out there people look at something I created and smile every day.  Kudos once again to DIYpsi for organizing the craft tent, and the Henry Ford for putting on this amazing event for 5 years and counting.





I do not have any more shows scheduled at this time, but will keep you updated as the holiday season approaches and my show schedule is defined.  In the meantime, you can find my bots in Ann Arbor, MI at Found in Kerrytown Market and  826 Michigan, and in Rochester Hills, MI at Pine Creek Center for the Arts.  Commissioned work, special requests, or simply wishing to save yourself a trip, I’m always open to selling to you directly as well.  Find my work on etsy, or simply shoot me an email at  deets[at]bydeets.com  to let me know what you’re looking for.

If you liked what you saw under the DIYpsi tent this weekend, make sure to check out their upcoming show August 23-24 at the Corner Brewery in Ypsilanti.  While yours truly will not be vending that weekend, I may see some of you there in my volunteering capacity, and regardless, it is not to be missed!  Tons of amazing craft vendors, and food, and just awesomeness everywhere, all complimented with a Corner Brewery’s kick ass beer menu.

The third Maker Faire Detroit is nearly upon us!  I’ll be there all weekend selling my wares in the Handmade Detroit area and hopefully sneaking out here and there to see all the awesomeness I can.

Craft Faire 2

It’s with a very happy geeky heart that I’d like to announce that I’ll be a vendor at Craft Faire 2011, part of Maker Faire Detroit at the Henry Ford July 30/31st.  Last year’s event was beyond awesome, and I expect this year to be every bit as wonderful and more.

I will be there all weekend with my army of bots, octopi and bugs as well as some new work.  It’s only 44 days away, and that means there is lot of making in the near future…. *geeky squeal of delight*

Robot Art Fair within Art Fair

The weather has become gorgeous in Ann Arbor again, salt in the wounds of the Ann Arbor Art Fair. Depsite the rain and humidity, or possibly in part thanks to it, the Robot Art Fair at 826 Michigan was a wonderful success!  My new line of robots were received warmly, and are now available through 826 Michigan’s shop.

And since I keep talking about robots, and robots, and making more robots, I figure it’s about time I actually post a photo of these guys.  I’ll be taking an army to Maker Faire this weekend, and those sold at the event come on a base inscribed with “Detroit Maker Faire 2010″.

Let me know what you think! I plan to make some larger robots soon, as well as robot ornaments as winter approaches – think tiny robot scarves…
