This week on Maker Parent Happy Hour we celebrate the original makers – moms! Join this group of creative, talented women to talk about what they love to make, the challenges of making with and without kids, and the things that get them motivated to make as a family.
Join in the conversation about how making, doing, building together (successes and failures) creates meaningful experiences.
