Comic-Con 2012

I’m going to Comic-Con! I’m going to meet Stan Lee!!!

My birthday is coming up and, thanks to a gift from my parents, I’m going to meet one of my childhood heroes – the creator of Spiderman!

So, what does that have to do with crafts? I went to my favorite comic book store, Third Eye Comics in Annapolis, and bought a reprint of Archie comics from the 1970s. It broke my heart to do it, but I cut the pages apart and made books with Archie covers. I made one for me and one for my mom and they have lined paper for notes, graph paper for fun and drawing paper for signatures.

I took some of the leftover pages and made a handful of pins and magnets, too. I really liked making those. I’m going to have to do some more magnets, for sure. Maybe I’ll do some pins, too.

I can’t wait for Friday night, but at least I’m prepared. Now I just have to figure out what to wear.
