To all of our readers who are celebrating Thanksgiving, a happy holiday to all of you from all of us at MAKE. This day, besides being about celebratory overeating and sports viewing, is also about taking stock of what you have and being thankful for it. We are all very thankful for another year where we got to do what we love, helping orchestrate the floats for this crazy-cool DIY parade we call the maker movement. We love working with you all and serving your needs as makers. Here’s to another year of a creative, productive, and fun association.

We want to hear from you; what you’re thankful for this year. In the comments below, tell us some of the making-related things you’re most thankful for — your hackerspace, some new project you successfully completed, a new skill you learned, an idea or collaboration you’re excited about, whatever it is (but please keep it about making).

Have fun, be safe, and keep the antacids handy…

Love from your pals at MAKE
