Planning my kids' birthday parties brings out my (not-so-inner) lunatic. I can spend all the hours of the day that I should be sleeping just Googling around the old intertubes, Pinteresting all up in the house, making list after list of cute little crafts and recipes that are both delicious and in the shape of farm animals or whatever. Of course, approximately 97% of the things I put on these lists of mine are 100% pipe dream. 

But THIS year, for THIS birthday, my son requested a Star Wars party. And because of his dad's insane obsession with said movies, we have life-size cardboard cutouts of C-3PO, the official Star Wars cookbook, and every Star Wars figure in the galaxy (see what I did there?) just lying around waiting to fuel my party-planning madness. 

My only fear now is that my kids are going to expect this kind of hoopla every year. (Fat chance.)

Here are some pics from the big day:




Picture
I think we can all agree that Chewy was the real star of Star Wars.
Picture
The watermelon Death Star idea, among others, came from this cool blog: http://justjennrecipes.com/foodbuzz-24x24-the-ultimate-star-wars-party/2010/10/04/
Picture
Not pictured, because they were devoured as soon as I put them on the table: the Han-burgers and the trash compactor pasta salad.
Picture
This cake was made by my insanely talented friend, Jenn Rhoads. It was so delicious I had DREAMS about it last night.
Picture
Han Solo! Trapped in carbonite--I mean, grape jello!
Picture
The happy birthday boy.
Now if only I could get that ridiculous cantina music out of my head.

Ive been making a lot of modular origami lately and when i look through all the books i have an on the internet at the best models out there, Ive found it hard to find multiple pieces of paper of the same color when i buy paper. For instance in Tomoko Fuse's book origami unit essence many of her large models require 90+ pieces of paper. my question is where do you buy your paper and where could i find many pieces of paper of the same colour in a pack? thanks

Come up to meet you, tell you I'm sorry
You don't know how lovely you are
I had to find you, tell you I need you
Tell you I'll set you apart

Tell me your secrets and ask me your questions
Oh, let's go back to the start
Running in circles, coming up tails
Heads on a science apart

Can I just say what a relief to discover someone who truly knows what they're talking about on the web. You actually understand how to bring a problem to light and make it important. More and more people have to check this out and understand this side of the story. I can't believe you're not more popular given that you surely possess the gift.
