How do you explain yourself, as a maker, to people outside of your community? Answered
Seriously, you've been asked this over and over throughout the years. If you've ever tried to explain to a family member or friend what you do in your spare time (or for work), you've run into this question.
How do you explain being a maker, crafter, hacker, builder, tinkerer, or whatever your self imposed title might be? Have you found something that tends to work, or do you still fumble with different explainations every time you get asked this?
Either way, please share how you describe what you do to people who are so removed from your community that they just don't understand the usual, "I make things" response.
