Pretty. Geeky. Things.

Star Wars Jewelry Crawl wrap Bracelet // We add new Star Wars posts to our blog every week! // #starwars #anewhope #review #jewelry #bracelet #gift #loveandmadness /// maythefourthbewithyoupartyblog.com

There has been a big shift in attitude about Star Wars in the past couple of years.  I’ve never cared if people thought I was a geek or not, or whether or not that was a cool thing to be.  (I wear my labels proudly: Christian, mother, wife, daughter, sister, friend, artist, geek… though not necessarily in that order).  But now, all of a sudden geeks are the new “cool.” 

And that means people are making cool things just for us fans (ABOUT TIME!)!  Pretty, geeky, cool, shiny things just for us fan-girls.  Beautiful things like this Star Wars wrap bracelet.

“WAIT! WHAT?” you say.  This doesn’t LOOK like a Star Wars bracelet?  Take a closer look, read some of the words.  I’ll wait…

So since today is Waffle Day in Sweden, what better way than to celebrate with DEATH STAR WAFFLES!!!!!

I am still processing the movie… so more on that in a different post.   Instead, today we are thrilled to share M4P guest writer and LEGO® “Master Builder” Peter Guenther‘s review of the ship whose appearance in The Force Awakens made me squeal with joy.  Take it away Peter…

The Force Awakens, LEGO®  has released a new version of the Millennium Falcon, set 75105.  Weighing in at an impressive 1329 pieces (plus a few extras, just in case), six minifigures plus a droid, and a price tag of $149.99, is this set worth the investment?

Is there Crying at Star Wars?

Stormtrooper Tissue Cover

2 weeks ago, we talked about Star Wars movie preparedness.  The movie premiers tomorrow, and I wanted to mention one last thing:  You’ll probably need tissues!

The fact that there is a new movie coming out is pretty emotional for a lot of people.  And I vividly remember the day, 3 years ago when it was announced that Disney bought Star Wars…

The Hubby was working really late, and I had already turned in.  Around 2 am, I was forcefully awakend by loud thumps, red flashing lights and my bed shaking.  As you can imagine, being woken up like that was terrifying… a lot of really horrible scenarios involving breaking of doors, kidnapped children, robbers (or worse) and police flashed through my mind.

All I Want for Christmas!

All I need are these 2 books.
Well those, and a relaxing family Christmas with lots of hugs and laughter. 
And the bracelet my daughter hinted at making.
And for my dad to feel better.
And world peace…
And this lamp…
…and this thermos… (I do so love Steve Martin. If you have not seen it, ask for The Jerk for Christmas!)

‘Tis the Season for Star Wars Bling

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…
