    …the Childcraft books! I completely forgot about those…I don’t know how, either — I was *always* reading them, especially Make and Do!
    I need to see if I can dig up copies for my daughter.

    I loved Make and Do! That was my favorite one too. I still have my battered old 1976 copy with my nameplate in it, but I really wish I had the whole series – I want to track down the other ones.
    I bet your daughter will love them!

    I love how you made the photo by adding two of my favorite jedi, love those movie…, and love the hat…
