The most popular post this year has been our 2nd Star Wars Banner post. It is really nice to get such positive feedback on the pieces we do! 🙂 THANKS GUYS!! So I am thinking it would be a good idea to post the patterns for the last of the 3 banners we have made so far… while you still have time to make it for the big party. You ARE throwing a May the Fourth be with You Party, right?
Just over 3 months left to get our May the Fourth be with You Party crafts done. Time to get started! Good thing I have my new best friend: my Silhouette Cameo 2 Die-cutting Machine. I sound like an infomercial, I do, but I have to say I am in awe of its almost unlimited possibilities… If only my available time was unlimited as well.
A few weeks ago I shared that M4P mom was worried that our Christmas cards were going to be Star Wars themed. Well, she was right! (My mom is almost always right…) We sent them out a couple of weeks ago, and now I’m sharing them with you guys too.
The cards had a cut Star Wars snowflake on top, once you flipped that up, you can see the text, photos and design elements – all which are Star Wars themed. (Go further down the post to see the card in its entirety).
But this post really is not about Star Wars…. ‘cuz as much as we focus on fun, and arguably frivolous things here on this blog, we all know these are not the things that truly matter in life.
M4P friend Gene Ha will tell you this gift wrap is NOT a space slug, it is a lobster claw…
Of course he has a compelling argument… He bought the Admiral Ackbar bobble-head that was inside for me (yeah!!!), AND he created the wrapping. And as all of Gene’s fans know, Gene has a somewhat warped sense of humor, so a lobster claw wrapping makes perfect sense to him. Calamarian… Red gourmet seafood… Lobster.
Come on, who does not LOVE getting presents? And who does not LOVE to tear them open right away? Not me, not this time. I recently received 3 small-ish boxes (from M4P friend Gene Ha) wrapped as Star Wars figures, and I just could not imagine that the inside could live up to the awesome outsides. So I didn’t, open them, for a looong, time.
