I was contacted a few weeks ago by Make Magazine's Brookelynn Morris to be part of a series of Meet the Makers videos they were doing.

By BillyBlue22, info below the cut. I'm going to say right off the bat that I am not a fan of the greater american gift giving frenzy. I don't do black friday deals, I don't by things out of some obligation to do so.  However, that being said, I
