Awesome DIY Star Wars Valentine’s Day Cards By Katie Cook

What’s more special than a handmade card on Valentine’s Day? A handmade Star Wars card on Valentine’s Day! These adorable do-it-yourself Valentine’s Day cards by artist, Katie Cook, have a place in every geek’s heart. With the recent re-release of Episode I – The Phantom Menace in RealD 3D (which, I must say, is pretty awesome), this is a cute and timely card for your kids to distribute at school. I’m not sure how far this would get you if you printed this out for friends or your significant other, but it’s worth a shot if you’re looking for last minute cards before you leave work today!

These 4 cards plus the DIY envelope are so brilliant I wanted to know who exactly Katie Cook was. I contacted her and she was awesome enough to answer a few questions! Download the card designs and check out her interview after the jump.

Georgia Man Derek Benson Gives His Kids Lunches in Style

By  •  News

Here’s a dad that’s been doing his thing for awhile, and in true 8BitDad fashion, we caught on late.

Derek Benson draws video game, cartoon and movie characters on his kids’ school lunchbags. The 41 year old from Georgia played games as a kid, used to work at Namco, and enjoys playing games with his kids now – which inspires some of the art. And when he can’t think of something they like, he just draws whatever he liked as a kid.

Review: H2-Whoa! Water Drawing Board
