May the Fourth be with You…

In celebration of May the 4th…


Me, sporting my Star Wars t-shirt from ThinkGeek.com and wielding my light saber (ok.  you got me.  it’s my eight-year-old son’s lightsaber.  just don’t tell him.)

My favorite non-traditional holiday next to May 25th, Geek Pride Day.

May the Fourth be with you.


‘Tis the Season: Share your crafty ideas

Well, here we are. Three days into December and well into the holiday season. I’m going to take a wild guess that most of you who had planned to make their holiday gifts have already done so.  Back in July.  Or even September.  Me? I’m still contemplating what I want to make and for whom.  I will probably stay in this mode until the week before Christmas when I will then go into a full blown panic (and what a sight that is), decide to make something too complicated, make a half-ass attempt at crafting it and then opt for Amazon gift cards (like last year).  Why I don’t just go for the gift cards right off that bat is beyond me. I’ve never been one to try analyze my own reasoning, so why start now?

Alrighty then.  Calling all crafty people! I want to hear about what you are making  this holiday season, and for whom you are making it.  If you have a blog, add a post about it and include the link along with your comments.  I’d love to see pictures if possible.

Ok. Ok.  You found me out.  I’m just looking for ideas to make my friends and family.  Yup.  But you can’t blame me for trying!
