I’m getting Darth Paper fever! There’s all sorts of behind the scenes stuff going on with it right now and it’s really exciting!
And to make it even better, I just got this great picture from Super-Folder DT of his new Deluxe Origami Darth Vader!

In other news…
I have seen the cover for Darth Paper!!! It is amazing! It’ll knock you out! But I can’t show you yet…. waiting on official approval first.
Also, the Recorded Books version of “Origami Yoda” is available on iTunes now! If your mp3 player works with iTunes, it should be simple to download it and listen to the story. The readers did a great job on it and I think you’ll enjoy it!
Yesterday, Scholastic came to my house to film an interview. I did all kinds of crazy stuff for them! If your school holds a Scholastic Bookfair next fall, you may get to see the interview in class! That’s better than actually working!!
Well now you can make one, too, because Jess has made instructions! This is a bit of a challenge, but the results are worth it!!

Direct from DURO, here’s Origami Cad Bane …. folded by a Super-Folder who calls himself: Yoda 5447.
Just watched General Grievous in action in a Clone Wars episode, then I come to the computer and find this….
Jordi’s 4-Armed, Two-legged General Grievous…
Whoa! Better watch out for the General AND Jordi!
There’s a new contest up over at http://hortonhalfpott.wordpress.com
But you better hurry! Prize goes to the first person to complete mission!!
Here’s a photo from a cool library event in Catalonia! (I think I’m saying that right.)
Looks a lot like library events here in America, but the book looks a bit different, huh?
As you know, I’ve been running behind trying to get stuff posted. And I’m starting to get confused about what I did post and what I didn’t.
(Seriously, if I haven’t posted something you sent in it may be because my brain isn’t working so well these days. If you’ve sent in something and it hasn’t turned up yet, drop me an email reminder. (A nice one))
So, now that my leg injury had healed enough to let me sit down and get to work, I thought I’d put up a whole bunch of stuff at once. Where should it come from? The AWESOME file, of course.)
Thanks everybody for all the nice comments about feeling better….
They must have worked, because I am feeling better today. I was able to go through and moderate a whole lot of your comments and answer some questions and stuff like that.
Over on HortonHalfpott.com, I picked a winner in the book giveaway contest. It was Karl Soriano…. Karl, aren’t you a Super-Folder, too?
And get this…. I got a package today. It was a get-well present and guess who sent it….. the folks at Lucasfilm!!! They are so nice!
I got something else in the mail today, too. Bonnie Burton’s Star Wars Craft Book! Have you seen it??? It is awesome!!!!!!
It is now available in stores and online! It will give you a tone of projects to try and inspiration for many more!!
1. Turns out I can’t moderate/answer comments so well on this mobile device. So that’s going slowly. Sorry.

3. I may have made a breakthrough today in creating a reasonably easy version of the cover Yoda. I’ll keep you posted and if it works I WILL put a how-to video on Youtube!
4. Thanks for everyone’s nice notes and comments. I am feeling a lot better today!
5. Tomorrow I have a DVD of The Clone Wars to watch while I sit around trying to heal!!!!
