Jen's Gems: The Star Wars Bedroom Of Your Dreams Belongs To A 10-Year-Old Girl

Some of my favorite internet finds this week:

First, Emmie's incredible Star Wars bedroom:

The glowing Death Star! The art! The Tie Fighter desk!

My friend Amy did a great write-up on all the details over at StarWars.com - go see!

Lumecluster's 3D printed armor debuted last year, I think, but this week it's been making the internet rounds again. And since I'm always up for sharing (or re-sharing) something this glowy and gorgeous, behold!

Melissa (the creator) started with a simpler - but equally beautiful - set of armor first modeled by Felicia Day. Both sets are completely 3D printed, and have an incredible flexibility and range of motion.

Lately Melissa's been focusing on smaller 3D printed pieces you can purchase - or could, since many are sold out now. Check them out in Melissa's gallery; the masks are especially stunning.

Here's my favorite craft find this week: this "Sustainable Geometry" lamp by Engl212 on Instructables.


It's made almost entirely of cardboard, and all the templates are included at the link, with super clear instructions. AMAZING. Especially with a color-shifting LED tucked inside!

Thanks to Star Wars Day one of my friends posted this, and you guys, I had never seen it before. How? HOW?? I don't know. But just in case you've never heard an insanely catchy song where Yoda complains about seagulls, turn on the sound and watch this:

I sense an iTunes download in my future.

And finally, John's contribution this week just might make the room a little dusty.

Let's be more like Anu's class this week, everyone.

Now go forth, and be awesome.


Happy weekend!

  12. Gah, kids are so great and upfront. I met my daughter for lunch one day in her early days of 1st grade, and all the kids told me about themselves. One kid said, "Hi I'm Billy and I have a fake eye!" All the kids pointed to it, and said, "look, it's cool!" He said, "you know what the best part is? I always win staring contests, because I just close my other eye!" I dread the age he becomes self-conscious about it, but at this age, it was so fun to see everyone be so upfront and inclusive. :)

  16. Chests of drawers should be your next purchase if you have a relatively good sized bedroom. Chests of drawers are ideal for storage.http://www.easeofmobility.com/best-shower-seat-guide/
