Maps to Austin Mini Maker Faire (May 3rd, 2014)

For the last week or so, we've been working long days to make our latest product Pixzle a reality.  We first unveiled Pixzle at SXSW to see whether or not there was any interest and sure enough the crowd loved it.  Most importantly, was seeing the excitement of children playing with the demo Petite - Pixel Puzzle Art.   They are ever so creative.  Parents had a hard time getting them to return to their family outing and continue to explore the SXSW - Create tent.     After this event ended, we felt that we had something good, well worth pursuing it, and make it available to everyone.

We had a little delay since we both fell sick and took some time to recover.  For the last two weeks we've been working almost around the clock to make all of our designs and introduce a new member to the Pixzle family.    We have much work to do this week to meet our goal to participate and make these lovely artistic kits available for the Austin Mini Maker Faire.   We believe everyone is an artist and providing them with the tools to create their own magic.

I've created an event in both facebook and G+ to make it easier for you to add to #AMMF your calendar:

Just got the maps of AMMF's arena.. See us at booth #6 in the orange area of the Bizarre Bazaar below.
Here's the map of AMMF outside the arena.

So much to see and do... Thanks to Kami Wilt of Austin Tinkering School who made this possible.  She believed so much in the Austin Maker Community that she was instrumental to bringing back the Mini Maker Faire to Austin.   Best thing the Maker Faire did was to introduce the Mini Maker Faire empowering towns wanting to have their own version.  Kami saw this opportunity and made it happen.  It's been three years in the making and to see AMMF at the Travis County Expo Center excites me because I'm so fond of my first Maker Faire experience which was at the Travis Country Expo Center...we had so much fun learning, making and exploring.   Please join us and have a blast at AMMF this year.   It's bigger and better.

Magical Father Daughter Moment

This is why I love what I do… to see moments like this is ever so rewarding.
These kits are designed to bring not one person the joy of making but two or more. You may start with Pixzle’s design and eventually work your way to making your own artistic creations…just like this young girl did.
They’re ever so cool. Currently working on a new PIXZLE to be added to the family of fun pixel puzzle art platform which includes the PIXZLE Petite (shown above) and PIXZLE Prodigious (shown below).
Evelyn made this LOVE design and has hung it in front of her office window.
She’s always wanted stain glass artwork but really wasn’t up to dealing with a soldering iron and glass cutting. This is so much easier for her to create her own artwork. Here’s one she made using the Petitie platform. It’s a happy cat. Too bad her miniature cat Sally didn’t stay around for the photo shoot.
Once you get started pixelating, you’ve entered the coolest part of living; recreating or making a whole new world. Have fun. Be you. Be COOL.
