As expected, my partner Elameno spoiled me rotten, and I did ~not~ do near enough...
I must apologize in advance. I am technologically inept and can NOT post pictures that don't make your neck hurt. Eventually, I will learn how...I swear!
She told me in the beginning that she would make something for my 6 year old, SW obsessed, son. She did...but I don't think I am going to share
She sent me the most wonderful extras, and a lovely note...which I totally forgot to do for her. I am starting with the extras, just to build your anticipation
First up is an awesome autograph from James Arnold Taylor, who is the voice actor for Obi Wan Kenobi and Plo Koon in SW Clone Wars. She got it at Disney Hollywood Studios here in Florida for SW Weekends in 2010. I was actually there that year- we probably passed each other in the park
Next is a super cool coloring/sticker book which my 6 year old has already attempted to run away with. It has stickers that you use on the pages then complete the coloring.
Most happily, she made it to Free Comic Book Day and got the SW comic. This makes me super happy, because I wasn't able to get there that day!
Next is something super cool! It is stickers from SW Celebration V (2010). I have never been to SW Celebration, and actually didn't even know it exists until this year. It is ~way~ outside of my budget, but I know that she is planning on attending this year as well.
Now for the crafty goodness that makes me feel so very inferior...
She made me a Fett Necklace! My favorite bounty hunter, around my neck! No action shot, because I am feeling "blah". But...check this out!
An oh-so-awesome apron! I guess she read my mind about wanting more SW kitchen things, because she made me THIS!
The look on my boy's face is annoyance because that was picture number 5. He kept grinning and jumping, which made for blurry, unusable pictures and a grumpy mommy. He finally stood still, but looked like that...
The thing she claims is for my son, but just isn't...mostly because my Husband snagged it
A SW checker board! Made of GLASS!!! How awesome is that?? It's super cool. She took a piece of scrapbook paper and attached it to the bottom of a glass board. Pure genius, and pure simplicity. Of course, now I must hunt down that scrapbook paper...
And, along with it: Pieces to play with, and instructions for playing the game:
Death Star Battle: Tie Fighters vs X-wings... If you get a King, flip it to get a Millenium Falcon or Darth's fighter...but remember: Let the Wookie Win!
Super cool! So happy, and so guilty that I didn't do more...
Thank you so much for a super awesome swap!
