Hot vampire

New Moon Countdown

Oh wow I'm so excited, its exactly 1 month till New Moon comes out in the cinemas, and I'm def going to see it. I read all 4 Twilight books in a week and have watched the film constantly. I'm def a sad person but I'm hooked. Can't wait to see more on-screen attraction between Edward & Bella, even though I know it will be a sad film. Anyone else feel the same?

OMG vampire books

OMG I never thought I'd say this but I love Stephanie Meyer Twilight books about a teenage girl's love for a vampire. (Of course everyone is probably aware of the storyline but I was oblivious at first!)

Two of my young colleagues at work read them and raved over them. I dismissed them as teenager's (makes me sound ancient LOL!!) fiction with blood and gore about vampires. Then my friend (who's similar in age!) read them all avidly and said they were fantastic. So my curiousity was peaked. I love reading anyway and had just finished Dan Brown Lost Symbol in 3 days!!

I bought Twilight last Tuesday evening and read it in 2 days, I was hooked from the first pages. Edward and Bella's romance was captivating. I ordered the film on DVD. I bought New Moon on Thursday and again read it in 2 days. It was so sad I cried. I bought Eclipse on Saturday, and I've finished it already. I'm going shopping tomorrow for the final one "Breaking Dawn".... I cannot believe how brilliant they are. It's such a fantastic love story. Can't wait to read the outcome. I thoroughly recommend them to anyone of any age. You'll be hooked.

Am going to watch Twilight tomorrow. Thought I ought to do some housework first as I've done nothing since starting to read the books LOL, my house is a mess!!

sympathy card

I made this card for a blogger friend who lost her dad very suddenly recently. I didn't want to make an obvious sympathy card so I hope she likes it. I sent it 1st class 2 days ago so she should have it by now. I also made this pin as a little present to hopefully lift her spirits a bit at this sad time.

The card is made from stash using white opaque vellum paper with silver highlights so the image didn't come out that well. I've also used black and silver card with black and white flowers, gems, glitter and brads. The pin is just a hat pin with clear, silver and pearly beads with silver sequins.
Just to let you know I'm thinking of you Emma....hugs to you and your family, Clare x
