In the last few years, the non-profit community in the United States has gotten in on the Thanksgiving Holiday spirit and joined Black Friday and Cyber Monday with Giving Tuesday, encouraging people around the country to chip in and donate to non-profit organizations. And since Quelab is Albuquerque’s first non-profit makerspace, we decided to join in.
I had the honor to be on a podcast panel during Albuquerque mini MakerFaire 2017, Myself, and Mini Maker Faire organizer Wendi Flybutter, Bernalillo County Seed Librarian Brita Sauer, Talking to the City on the Edge podcast crew, all about making, makering, planting new seeds, and about many more things including Quelab (even if they got the tags a bit wrong).

The fourth of July is nearly upon us! So in preparation I bring you my collection of fireless ideas for entertaining kids and adults alike on this holiday! At the end will be links to the 2013-2016. If you celebrate with fireworks or without, some of these may help you out! pass the time and have fun, and if you celebrate with fireworks, please do it responsibly, keep a hose handy, a bucket of water to quench the deads, and common sense.
