Month three of “Making a Makerspace” and our space is finally beginning to feel like a living, breathing, functioning space.
It’s been a little over two and a half months since I started working at the SCC Makerspace, and nothing is the same as when we started. The transformation this space has gone through is incredible.
Our carpets and walls are dry. Time to move stuff. Our 2D room will house most of our digital art machinery. We are also bringing in a hydroponics station, podcasting equipment, and bean bags—lots and lots of bean bags.

This is a thank you card to everyone who helped out with the SCC Makerspace Project.

As I sat in front my of my desk with a blank paper brainstorming what on earth I was going to produce today...
A tree sat at the top of a hill. It was dusk and the sun lit of the sky so that all the best colors were visible.
I spent all day making. Cut, fold, glue, repeat.
Sometimes the line is blurred when it comes to wants and needs.
I got a late start today... that said anything and everything can inspire my work.
Today's Daily UI was to do a credit card checkout...
