While Jedi Masters have midi-chlorians raging through their systems, there's a good chance glitter runs through my veins. I've been crafting ever since I could figure out how to use a pair of scissors and a bottle of glue.
I would happily cut up the Sears Wish Book and redesign the layout of bikes, dollhouses and Snoopy phones in my scrapbook. If there was a sock and two buttons within my grasp, I'd make a puppet in record time. Crafting makes life more fun, one googly eye at a time.
When I started making the crafts for my book The Star Wars Craft Book (published by Random House), I had to choose the best of the best from my collection of crafts, which included puppets, dolls, pillows, pet toys, holiday ornaments and more. Below are some of my favorite crafts, along with their backstories.
Make these crafts and more in The Star Wars Craft Book, available in the U.S. from Random House and in the U.K. from Titan Books. Be sure to tweet any pictures of crafts you make to me at http://www.twitter.com/bonniegrrl—I'd love to see what you make! May the craft be with you... always!
