 Star Wars 8: The Last Jedi Geek Party!
There's no better way to debut a new movie than with a party!
We set up a small spread of goodies and some Star Wars decor before going to see the movie...but parties are fun any day of the week.
 I used this amazing nightstand from Bellacor for the buffet table.
Other fun goodies and decor came from Oriental Trading
 We had Hutts in a blanket, Gummy Ewoks, Thermal Detonators and Galaxy Far Far Away Cake!  My kids love it when I name the food funny things.
 I got these amazing chipboard shapes from my sister in law.  They are sturdy and fun!

  (similar to these)

They make the perfect addition to any party decor.
I spray painted the Americana Barn Stars on stands with gold, silver and copper paint.  I thought the ornate lights looked like little Death Stars.
I made bounty hunter jet packs for the kids as favors.  Simple craft and great for space themed parties!
I used my letterboard from DCWV (purchased at Joann) to write up a funny Luke Skywalker quote.
"But I was going into Tosche Station to pick up some power converters."
My cinema lightbox board with May the Force be with you

...and my R2D2 and BB8 Wood cutouts.

The perfect party spread for an amazing movie debut!
We watched episodes 4-7 in preparation for The Last Jedi!
How are you celebrating the latest Star Wars Movie?

Star Wars Inspired Crafts: Porg Tote DIY!

Star Wars Crafts: Porg Tote DIY!
Have you discovered the loveable porg yet?  It's the new adorable creature from Star Wars: The Last Jedi.  They look similar to a puffin or penguin...and a kawaii doodle!  They have gigantic eyes and a little frown.  Cutest ever, right?

Check out this Porg painted pumkin from Creative Green Living too!
Well, no matter how you feel about the porg, you are all the wiser and can make it part of your daily routine with this great canvas tote.
Right click to save off this face.  You'll notice I squished up the face to utilize the heat transfer vinyl better.  Save it off and load it into Cricut Design Space.
You will need:
Cutting mat and iron on vinyl, plus a great canvas tote!
Once your image is in CDS, make it the size you want.  I made mine big, with each eyes 5 inches across to fit my large tote.
Place the vinyl on the cutting mat with the plastic surface down on the mat.
You don't need to reverse the image for iron-on...you can, but the image is pretty close to symmetrical.  Then send it to cut.
Iron your tote a little bit so it's ready to add the face.
Weed the vinyl and cut the shapes apart.  Then place the iron on vinyl on the tote where you think it looks best.
Plastic side up.  Then iron on medium high for about 20-30 seconds or so.
Let the plastic cool and peel off.  Re-iron if necessary.
Once peeled off, it's ready to take to the library and fill with books, grocery store and fill with food or stuff with paraphernalia for the next family event.  Showing off your Star Wars geekery pride!

Qwirkle! Best Game and Awesome Gift!

Non affiliate links included.
 Have you played Qwirkle?
We just got it from Oriental Trading/Mindware and love it!
As long as you order by Monday December 18th, you will get it in time for Christmas too!
 Qwirkle is a fun game with wood tiles with various shapes and colors.  The game is similar to playing dominoes, but the shapes and colors make it so that kids of any age can play, without reading or counting.  The scoring takes place as pieces are set down, so a score keeper should be designated.  This is a great family game and would make a wonderful Christmas gift!
 You will love it--Get it ordered right now!
