TTIC #25

This week, Twilight Tuesday has a 2 part challenge. One is to create a project showcasing what you love about Twilight (sorry gals... no time for that this week!). The other is to discuss what Twilight has meant to us. I have so many things I could write about here. Of course, my favorite scene is the meadow. I love Alice. The relationship between Bella and her dad holds a special, envious, place in my heart. So many things meant something to me... from just one little book.

But, I think I will discuss Chapter 11: Complications. I just loved when Edward asked Bella everything from her favorite color to which flowers she likes best. This part is special to me because it reminds me of when my husband and I just started going out so many years ago. That was us. Talking. Question after question. Discussion after discussion. Delving deeper into each other's souls further than we ever had with someone before. I think deeper than I had with myself before! I remember my face hurting at the end of each Thursday we had with each other. It hurt from smiling so much. That was such a magical time for me. I loved learning about, not only his life, but his soul too. I don't think there was much of anything we didn't talk about. And it was all so comfortable. Don't get me wrong... we talked about the "hard" stuff too. But it was good. It was good to talk to him about that stuff. And it was easier than it would've been with any other person. There was so much emotion too. Laughter, tears, kinda weird silences from time to time as we tried to digest whatever was just said.

It was wonderful. I loved that time. I love having deep conversations with him even now. But, those beginning discussions... those moments are precious. So yeah, I could tell you how rad the meadow scene is in my head (and how it was destroyed in the flick), or how much I enjoyed vampires playing baseball... but, that's what most people will tell you about. For me, this is a love story that is helping me to relive my own. And what a wonderful story it is...

Hey -- a brand-new blog! This looks great! I really enjoyed reading your post -- I LOVED those moments between Edward and Bella in Twilight -- all those questions, all that conversation. Before the movie came out, I was worried about this part -- knowing that movies don't usually show people just sitting around talking endlessly. They hinted at it a bit in the movie, but it was nothing like reading that part!

Thanks so much for sharing some of your Twilight story, and for finding us at Twilight Tuesday.com!
Beautiful post Alison! I agree, the movie did not do well with showing how those conversations is what made them fall in love...
Thanks for sharing :)

Christmas in July with Imagine Crafts & Stencil Girl!

Hello! Have you heard? The Imagine AIRs have been hopping with Stencil Girl! If you have been here before, you know I loooove me some stencils, so this collaboration was very exciting for me! The teams are hopping for 3 consecutive Saturdays, and this is week 2. I have the entire list of hop links at the bottom of the post. Be sure you don't miss anyone! I decided to to create an extra large gift tag with my new stencils. Using red cardstock, I taped down the Journal Texture #8 Stencil  and inked it up with Golden Glitz Delicata ink . I promise you, this is the BEST gold ink you will ever use! The Journal stamp only has 2 diamonds on it (it's a 4x4" stencil), so after I inked up the first pair, I moved over the stencil, lined it up, and inked again. Next I wanted to do something textural with the Urban Insiders Star . So I took some evergreen cardstock, taped down the star, and slathered on some yummy Iridescent Green Creative Medium . After the medium dried, I ga

Deco Art and Andy Skinner Hop

This is a very exciting week for the Stampendous team! We are hanging out with the ultra cool Deco Art Mixed Media team, each using each other's products to share some incredible creations with you. These companies go hand in hand, so using each other's products is easy. And the results are amazing. We are of course featuring Andy Skinner's stamps, who is the DecoArt International Education Coordinator.  And yup, there are prizes! But I want you to go to the Stampendous Blog for all of that info. The link is at the bottom of the post. Now, on to my project. I made a cool wall hanging today. I started off with a piece of MDF and I drilled 2 holes, and covered it with DecoArt's white Gesso. After it dried, I used Andy's Alcohol and Media fluid Acrylics Layering Technique. You can check out his how-to video HERE . Needless to say, it's a great technique, and I loved doing it. Once I finished with the aforementioned technique, I sealed the piece w

Remembering Aletha

Greetings, Friends. This post today is part of a very special blog hop. We are celebrating the life of an amazingly talented artist and friend. The crafting community lost Aletha Jane Williams on May 5, 2019. Those of us that worked with her on Design Teams or on Challenge Blogs all agree that she was one of the sweetest and most talented women we knew. We are not here to mourn her loss though. This hop is happening in conjunction with a very special celebration of her life and her art that her husband Bob is holding in her home city of Tulsa, Oklahoma. Please join us in honoring our incredibly creative friend Aletha . My card features the "Remembering Aletha" Sprite, which Mitzi (owner and artist of Aurora Wings ) created specifically for this hop. She is generously giving the digi away to all, over on her blog. This sweet Sprite looks so much like Aletha, and I know she would have been honored. If you download this digi for yourself, please be sure to give a huge "
