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…

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?

Getting Ready for May the Fourth! (More DIY Banners)

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.

And for my dad to feel better.
And world peace…

‘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…

I do Believe – that All the World’s a Star…

…Beyond that heav’nly light I shall fly far!”
Luke (ACT I, Scene 7), William Shakespeare’s Star Wars: Verily, A New Hope.

William Shakespeare's Star Wars, by Ian Doescher /// Check out our blog for lots of Star Wars gift ideas /// #starwars #starwarsgift #maythefourthbewithyou #starwarsbirthday #shakespeare #christmaspresent #starwarsbook #read maythefourthbewithyoupartyblog.com

One of the things on my bucket list is to see all of Shakespeare’s plays, live on stage.  (I’ve made a decent dent – about a dozen different plays live, plus another 10 plays recorded live on stage, or movies)

So needless to say, when M4P friend Amy sent me Ian Doescher’s, marvelous 3 book boxed set William Shakespeare’s Star Wars for Christmas last year.  I squealed with surprise and delight! It’s like they were written just for me!!!
