Star Wars Holiday Special

Star Wars Holiday Special? Did you know there was such a thing? This article is helping to unearth one of the biggest bombs in Star Wars history and I am absolutely intrigued! You can safely bet that I will be watching this masterpiece of mediocrity in the near future! Lucas has rarely spoken about the Holiday Special, but he once opened up at a fan convention and famously said: “If I had the time and a sledgehammer, I would track down every copy of that show and smash it.” Unlike the controversial digital tinkering with the original trilogy in the 1990s, … Continue reading Star Wars Holiday Special

DIY Pillow Cover

DIY Pillow cover? Why not! I knew this project was for me as soon as I saw the words "DIY" and "Hardware store". Absolutely hands down, if I can get my supplies from the hardware store you can count me in! While I may not make hundreds of pillows, a couple are certainly do-able in a rainy day afternoon.
