Last year, at Maker Faire Austin, it was fun to see photos of folks walking around with big furry bear hoods on, and the crafter responsible for all the furry fun is Ashley Larson of Foxy Monster. Ashley’s mission is to “spread smiles, joy, love, and goofiness, while keeping heads and necks warm.” Ashley will be bringing her furrrrocious handmade hoods to Maker Faire Bay Area this weekend, May 30th and 31st. Can’t wait to meet her and get my fur on!

I'm a word nerd who loves to geek out on how emerging technology affects the lexicon. I was an editor on the first 40 volumes of MAKE, and I love shining light on the incredible makers in our community. In particular, covering art is my passion — after all, art is the first thing most of us ever made. When not fawning over perfect word choices, I can be found on the nearest mountain, looking for untouched powder fields and ideal alpine lakes.
