MAKE Newsletter

December 14, 2012

Where DID 2012 go? For MAKE, it was an exciting and action-packed year. Look for our Best of MAKE series running on Makezine from Dec. 26 - Jan. 7, to catch up on what you may have missed. We hope you've had a great year, are looking forward to a fun holiday, and are ready for more great things from MAKE in 2013. We'll see you in the new year!
