Seeing the new trailer, I am itching to make patterns of The Force Awakens characters.  I am hoping to have the 5 new core characters designed and posted before the movie opens up – so stay tuned!  In the meantime, here is one of the ships that is used in The Force Awakens, as well as the original movies.

I had big plans. We were going to be X-Wing pilots for this year’s May the Fourth Party. But plans change. And this time for the better! Instead of making costumes, I have had the pleasure of being part of a big, exciting, creative project of a different sort. It is super secret as of right now, but I will talk about it on my post this Friday!! (Be sure to tune in!)

So, in lieu of our own gear, I am featuring Wedge for our weekly Perler/cross-stitch/Lego/pixel/mosaic pattern.

Good to Go! (DIY X-Wing Pilot Costume)

Oops, I did it again! (Bantha Milk Pancakes)

Star Wars Food: Bantha Milk Pancakes (TIE-Fighter, Darth Vader, X-Wing, Millennium Falcon, and Yoda Shaped) /// Check out our blog for lots of Star Wars Party food recipes and downloadable labels!

They sure did not look pretty, but what can be more fun than making Star Wars pancakes with Bantha milk?

The kids had a snow day not too long ago.  As a working parent it is both a treat to get to stay home with the kids on a weekday (sleep in, yeay!!), and a scramble to juggle working from home with them around.  This time around, fun won out.  Upon the kids insistence, we made pancakes.  But not just any pancakes – we made Bantha milk pancakes.  We have tried to use the Star Wars shapes before, and it didn’t work.  And I have to admit, it didn’t go well this time either.  They didn’t turn out very Star Wars-shaped.  The color was more greenish than blue.  And trying to pry a Millennium Falcon out of its mold, I sorta burnt the others.  But, you know what?  They were made with love and lots of laughter and tasted GREAT, so I still call it a success!

What does Star Wars Smell Like? (DIY Star Wars Soaps)

DIY Darth Vader Soaps (from Silicone Molds) /// Check out our blog for lots of Star Wars Party crafts and ideas /// #starwars #starwarsparty #maythefourthbewithyou #starwarsbirthday #darthvader #soap maythefourthbewithyoupartyblog.com

When our son was about 2.5 he asked me “What does Star Wars smell like?”  Now, it happens that I actually do not have a sense of smell, so I would not be able to answer a questions about what ANYTHING smells like.  But since I cry when I chop onions, I sneeze when someone wears too much perfume, and cough when I burn the chicken, I at least have some vague concept that different things smell differently.  Still, I was WAY out of my depth on the smell of Star Wars (though we have all heard about the Tauntauns stinking).  So, we asked dad (who is THE Star Wars expert in our family, and has an exceptional olfactory system to boot), but he had no idea either.
