As most of you probably know I’m a HUGE Star Wars fan. From April 11th – 15th I went to Chicago with my wife Jessica and our best friends who are also big Star Wars fans for Star Wars Celebration. A 5 day convention for all things Star Wars! Going was a bucket list item
It’s been almost 2 months since I’ve updated. Life had gotten pretty hectic for a while. I had a family issue that needed my attention for more than a month (good new things are looking up), then I went on vacation to Chicago for Star Wars Celebration! OMG it was so amazing. Couldn’t have asked

I’ve mentioned a few times I have a problem starting projects then not finishing them. While I’m making good progress getting my Mando helmet printed (more on that in another post).
