yep, it is just about that time.  star wars day(s).

for those who don’t follow, may 4th is a big day for star wars fans, as is may 6th (personally, i think fifth and sith go together better than sixth and sith, but whatevs).

i’m not the biggest star wars fan ever (i think that award goes to my coworker, a.), but i definitely get some geeky enjoyment out of the phenomenon.  and my anniversary also happens to fall on may 5th, so there’s that fun air of celebration going on this whole upcoming week.

i also happen to have several geeky little star wars items just hanging around right now.  so, it’s time for a giveaway!

one lucky winner will receive:


1 star wars battlefront patch, as seen above

1 randomly selected star wars themed soap from my etsy shop

1 darth vader keychain

now, you might notice that the photo of the patch actually shows more than one.  the good news is, if you don’t win, the rest of the patches (along with some other fun geeky goodies) will be up on my ebay page, starting on may 3rd and 4th (or you can try to bribe me for one 🙂 ).

how to enter:

please note, first off, that this blog has a terms and conditions page.  make sure to read it.
