We are most definitely Star Wars fans in my house. Our recent Spring Break visit to Disney, the crew enjoyed everything Star Wars at Disney’s Hollywood Studios. If you ever get the chance, stay and watch the Star Wars themed light show at the end, it’s fantastic. May marks the 40th anniversary of STAR WARS IV: A New Hope, the first in the franchise released.
While I’m not 40 just yet, I do remember watching this movie and all the others in the series as a kid. My parents have great photos of my cousin and I at about 3 dressed as Princess Leia and Luke Skywalker. I have great photos from about 10 years ago of all five of my own kids as the characters one year. The baby even had a tiny R2D2 costume, it was great!
STAR WARS IV: A New Hope is the movie chosen for the Monthly Movie Challenge I participate in with several other creative bloggers.
Sound fun? It is!

The Death Star is synonymous with Star Wars. Even if you’ve never seen the movie, you’ve heard of it.
We all got our first good look at it in this famous scene from A New Hope.
I’ve never made a clock before, but as it turns out, it’s pretty easy.
Create Your Own Star Wars Death Star Clock
One tip I can give you when creating a clock, make sure the width of the wood on your clock face surface is the same width as the clock movement kit. I didn’t realize they would be different until I looked closely at the packaging. If your wood surface is 3/4″ make sure your kit is also. Here’s a hyper lapse tutorial video I created to show you just how simple it is.
