Standard Twilight Blog Post

Over the past several months several of my favorite bloggers have discussed the book series (and now movie) by Stephenie Meyers called "Twilight." Surely you're familiar? I learned the premise of the books and dismissed the idea of reading them because I really should be studying and not getting obsessed with a novel. I still wasn't convinced after one of my childhood friends told me she read the books, which was a real shocker considering she's never been shy about her distaste for reading. After my oldest daughter picked up the Twilight bug when she saw a picture of Edward, I decided to read the novel. And really, I wasn't impressed. It took me a couple weeks to get through it, and I only finished because I hate unfinished projects.

Continual begging from the oldest led to us finally seeing the movie in the theater a few weeks ago. I had to giggle at some of the other patrons, when we sat down we were asked "how many times" had we seen it so far? Because of Lea's multiple viewings, I wasn't surprised when they told me they'd seen it 10 times.

Surprisingly, I really liked the movie. Especially the baseball scene. Wow! (Who doesn't love Jasper's baseball flipping action?;) )

I've since read New Moon (which I thought was much better written then the first) and I'll probably take Liz to one of the DVD release parties.

Who knew?

I like Twilight because of the aesthetic appeal. I made the bracelet above using my Simply Swank Kit and some photos that I printed on my photo printer, after editing in Photoshop. My soldering needs a *lot* of work! But it sure is fun. :) BTW - This was of course heavily inspired by Lea Sanders awesome Twilight Charm Bracelet, linked below. :) Thanks for the inspiration Lea!!!
