My sister and brother-in-law at Maker Faire!

Patrick Murillo Featured News

This is my sister, anjelica, and my brother-in-law (her husband, Ben). They went to Maker Faire to see Kathy and Maya. While they were there they got super crafty. Ben silk screened the shirt right off his body (muy mantastic!), and my sister sewed her top at the Swaparamarama. I guess creativity runs in the family!

Last week my wife was away in Fresno working on the crafty chica product line. All our world stops when she is away! She is home now and the house is happy again.
