Today is Day 2 of “M4P Mom’s Star Wars in Santa Hats” week.  (or as she says it in Swedish, Star Wars i Tomtehattar.)

The patterns can of course be used for a lot of things other than  T-shirts.  I can see these patters being used for silk screens on a variety of different materials, or printed out and used as Christmas gift tags (or even Christmas cards – despite what my mom says).  If I had an embroidery sewing machine, I would totally embroider these on tote bags, or kitchen towels.  Feel free to send me your ideas – and PLEASE send me your pictures!

For a year now, there has been an ongoing argument at our house.  Not about finances, or who should clean up after dinner,  but about stormtrooper helmets.  

I like the original ones.  They are iconic, classic and everyone knows what they look like. The hubby likes the new ones.  His first comment after he saw the teaser a year ago, was “I have to get a new helmet!”  I, of course disagreed.

‘Tis the Season for Star Wars Bling

Star Wars Charm Bracelet and Jewelry/// Check out our blog for lots of Star Wars gift ideas /// #starwars #starwarsgift #maythefourthbewithyou #starwarsbirthday #jewelry #christmaspresent #starwarsjewelry #rebels #empire #silver #stainlesssteel #charm #charmbracelet maythefourthbewithyoupartyblog.com

My hubby is nothing, if not a thoughtful man. Why else would he get me the new Game of Thrones season set, EVERY year for my birthday….   Why else would he happily enable my Star Wars Lego Mini-fig habit?   Why on earth would he rewire all our Internet cables in the house so we, I mean I, could get caught up on Breaking Bad on Netflix before the last season started on TV, if it wasn’t out of love for me?

And if giving your wife the complete series set of Battlestar Galactica “just because,” isn’t romantic, then I don’t know what is…

Well, maybe Star Wars Jewelry…

Silly Mommy, Tricks (-or-Treat) is for Kids!

Darth Vader Jacket and Reversible Chewbacca/Hoth Han Solo Jacket.

Since I am a kid at heart, I figured I am allowed to enjoy trick-or-treating as much as the kids do.  But I don’t dress up.  Well, I don’t dress up MUCH.

The trick is to dress up enough to reinforce the theme, but not so much that you take the focus away from the little ones…

Here at the May “the Fourth be with You” Party Blog, we have spent all weekend making food and decorations for this year’s Big Party. Before that, we spent 6 months posting ideas from previous parties. On our blog, you’ll find lots of inter-galacticly fun ways of celebrating the 4th.  We have more foods and craft ideas than you can shake Lightsaber at at…. (that last one was a typo, really, but I thought it was appropriate so I am keeping it in)

Happy “May the Fourth be with You” Everyone!

My Mom Loves Me! (DIY Flags)

Star Wars Garland and Flags (Downloadable Pattern) // Check out our blog for lots more Star Wars crafts and decor. // #starwars #starwarsparty #maythefourthbewithyou #starwarsbirthday #banners #stormtrooper maythefourthbewithyoupartyblog.com

My mother says she hates Star Wars (or “Star Tracks” as she calls it).  Hate is a strong word, but she just does not understand why anyone could possibly be interested in it. She does however love interior design and decorating, and she is amazingly good at it – in addition to being very creative. And being my mom, she wants to support all my endeavours!  So she has been calling me with ideas of things to feature on the M4P blog. Thus we are going to start a new feature here at on our blog: M4P Mom. She already has a whole list of suggestions for cool Star Wars Day decor and party ideas. As we create them, I will take photos and write the how-tos here. THANKS mom for always being my biggest fan and champion.
