Dear Diary/God/All Y'all Makers out there. PHEW. What a year! It has been full of blessings, Washi tape, pretzels with googly eyes on them, Velcro™, 3D printed spheres (put 'em on a bowl!) and doilies used for various things the Lord did not intend them for. But we reached the end, and have so much to be grateful for, so let's peep all the memories we "made" together. ;)
If necessity isn't the mother of invention, it's at least the mother of some inane DIY nonsense: Brit Morin, damned to an eternity of glue-gunning for sins in a past life, drew inspiration for her latest project from her startup's new digs. And this time, it's helpful—are you tired of walking through glass doors, too?
Brit Morin, Silicon Valley's favorite camp counselor, is expanding her plagiarist DIY movement: the San Francisco Business Times says her macaroni-gluing firm "signed a three-year lease for a 9,700-square-foot office near Union Square," putting those investment millions to work. That's a lot of space to fill shoeboxes with glitter.
Brit Morin profits, literally, from the Donald Rumsfeld school of reality: repeat something often enough and it will be so. Someone once called her the "Martha Stewart of Silicon Valley," and the label's been repeated in almost every article ever written about her, iota of talent not withstanding. Today, it pays off.
