I came, I pinned, I crafted

Hello friends. Today is a day for the history books. What could this momentous occasion be you ask? Why it's the day I get to see Part I of BREAKING DAWN! I know you're all very excited for me.

I have a lot of posts that need to be written but I'm just going to ignore those for now and amaze you with my craftiness. About 6 (or more) months ago my sister, Marissa, posted about this amazing website call pintrest. I wasn't very interested and even though I asked for a invite I ignored it. Well a few weeks ago my friend started bugging me, saying I just HAD to get on and sent me another invite. Which I promptly ignored again. Finally, a different friend asked if there was a way for me to get HER an invititation. So I resigned myself to signing up and inviting her. Well since then I haven't been able to STOP PINNING. For those of you who don't know what it is, pinterest.com is essential internet crack! It's like a giant bookmark page where you can save all your favorite websites and ideas AND steal other peoples. It's really quite wonderful and addictive. Here's the reality of it:


So what does this have to do with Breaking Dawn? Well normally I'm the type of person who would pin all these cool ideas and crafts and say "Wow, I'd love to make something like that," and then not do it. But ha ha I've fool you all and this time I followed through. I knew I wanted to make something Twilight related for my friends who were going to watch the movie with me and pinterest was the perfect place to find just the right craft! Since it's almost Christmas I decided on two Twilight themed Christmas ornaments. They were both surprisingly easy and fun to do.

The first was super simple, glass ornament, paint pens and feathers:

The front is a quote from Breaking Dawn, "Why am I covered in feathers?" and the back has today's date so they always remember the awesomeness of when we first saw the movie.

The second one was a little more work and a lot more pain. As a bookworm and a true nerd I treasure books and it made me physically ill to destroy one, even something like Twilight. But I took a  copy of the book tore it up (twitch) and mod podged it on to a plastic ornament. I let it dry, then picked some favorite quotes from the book and put those on along with a nice coat of glitter! The result was beautiful (although the glitter is coming off, next time I'll use a spray on type).

My set of three: "So the lion fell in love with the lamb. What a stupid lamb. What a sick masochistic lion."

One for Marissa: "Let me get this straight - I'm the baby seal, right"

And for Linda: "And third, I was unconditionally and irrevocably in love with him."

I love it!! Very cute ideas, Bethany just doesn't understand what she's missing with Twilight.

Okay, WOW. That's some serious craftiness!!! So impressed.

You have FOR SURE intrigued me re: your new addiction, but you know I'm SO susceptible to that kind of addiction and with the baby eating (literally) all of my time, I just can't risk it. If Twitter ever falls of the face of the Earth then I'll move on to PIN. :)
