Are you a fan of the do-it-yourself movement? Do you craft? Do the words "Maker" and "Faire," when used in conjunction, fill you with excitement?

Well then, I may have something for you.

I've got five pairs of tickets to this weekend's DIY bacchanalia at the San Mateo County (Calif.) Event Center to give away, and I'd love to give them to you.

If you've never been to Maker Faire, it's a wonderful Saturday and/or Sunday of great energy, terrific homemade creations, robots, life-sized Mousetrap, Tesla coils, battleships, art cars, motorized muffins, and so much more. And if you're a veteran, you know you want to come back. Heck, you probably were already planning on attending.

If you'd like to win one of these sets of tickets, then you need to head on over to my Twitter account, find the phrase I tweeted Monday with hash tag "makerfaire" and then send it to me. The first five people to send me the proper phrase at daniel--dot--terdiman--at--cnet--dot--com will win the tickets.

If you're a winner, you'll need to give me your name (as it appears on your ID) so that I can pass it on to the Maker Faire folks. They will add your name to the will-call list, and you'll pick your tickets up there. You'll have to pay for your own transportation and parking. The tickets are for one day, are good for adults or children and can be used either Saturday or Sunday. Please don't try to win these tickets if you don't actually plan on attending.

Good luck.
