Yup, I haven’t been about for a few weeks but I done the following(expect me back as of now):
I went to Vegas.
Zoltar gave me my fortune. Unfortunately I didn’t get BIG (although being an adult should it work in reverse?). I also didn’t get to jump about playing chopsticks on a giant piano (boo).
I did get to dress up all late 60s chick and have my birthday dinner with my friends in The Peppermill where they’ve filmed scenes in countless films including Casino.
I bought a rouge squad hoodie too, but haven’t had the chance to photo it yet. It’s super amazing though.
I got back from Vegas.
And a workmate bought me this Princess Leia mug (which is not my new FAV mug).
I bought myself these AWESOME stromtrooper star wars Vans.
I went to see one of my fav Directors EVER – Kevin Smith and Jay Mewes do their Jay and Silent Bob Get Old podcast and watch the Super Groovy Cartoon Movie.
Smith said she really inspiring shit and it’s made me even more than ever want to just try things because someone has to do everything, right. No holding back.
Oh and I bought these ridiculously awesome comfy pants.
Normal service will resume as of next week.
Yup, nearly STAR WARS DAY (aka my folks silver wedding anniversary!) and for a little celebration I bring you things you can do for free rather than the usual “here’s where you find cool shit you have to pay for” post.
I am a huge fan of Mollie from Wilde Olive and her super cute artwork with faces. She’s also a big Star Wars fan and she’s put together a few SW based projects that you can do at home for free (because she’s amazing like that).
So here are the two currently released – go to her blog for some free stuff to do this year on Star Wars Day.
A few free motifs for your crafting pleasure:
and this AMAZING Wampa with a removable arm!
Aren’t they fantastic! Wishing you all a fantastic STAR WARS DAY, may the 4th be with you 😉
The lego movie is due for release this Friday and by all accounts it looks like a corker. Straight onto the Lovefilm list then.
I still love Lego, I don’t really think it’s something you grow out of (or is that just me?) I have a Lego AT-AT which I bought a few years ago when I got some back pay from work. Pay off some of my debts…no….buy a Lego AT-AT? YES!
Want some funky Lego merch? I found these five little gems around the net:
First up, obviously this amazing BTTF Delorian, with Doc, Marty and Hoverboard
Lego silicone mould at The Roman Bazaar – make choccies, soap, ice cubes
A multi-colour Lego clutch at agabag
Loki Flash USB drive from NandoKommando
Star Wars Lego Kids Art from Star Wars Print Shop
Obviously there is so much more out there, I could go on for hours!
Anyone else love Lego? Are you buying it for your kids but really for yourself? I don’t even have that excuse!
My mate Liz (Discoklick Photography) came over to photograph us for her BA project. We got a bit of vadering and hadouken in too.
My husband Timothy draws stuff, he said he’d like to contribute some scribbling to my blog.
