New Moon Midnight Release Party

I’d like to start this post off by giving everyone who commented yesterday (here and on FB) a HUGE “Thank You!!!” March 21st will never be a good day for me. But, with friends like all of you (and some thoughtful relatives!), you have each made yesterday go a little bit better. I really felt the love, so THANK YOU!!!

I don’t have a project to share with you today. I came down with an evil cold yesterday (to add insult to injury!). But i really wanted you all to see what a great time I had with my sister Pam and my BF Terry.

Here we are at Walmart. Not a place I frequent by any stretch, but we just had to see what kind of merch they had!

And I figured you all (esp. Erica!) would want to see what I wore… so here is an incredible jacket Pam gave me years ago. Click on any pic to see it bigger.

Terry is not a fan of KS… can you tell???

We went to Borders next, where we picked up our flicks. There were not nearly as many people as there were for Twilight, which surprised us. Esp. considering how much better New Moon was over Twilight! At least, as far as the movies go. Ya know?

And here is Pammie and me. Pam is enjoying a Twi-inspired drink (anything to make a buck right?), and I am just giddy with anticipation!

 

It was a great night. And even though I wish my Twi-Girls were with us, I couldn’t imagine not doing this without Pam and Terry. Now we just have to wait for Eclipse to come out! Peace, Love and Twilight!

My Hubby went to Walmart to pick up something and won a Team Edward bottle by answering a question about New Moon!

Ahhh a shout out! You know me too well! Love the outfit! That jacket is fab! How tall are those shoes? Love the blonde in the hair! Glad you had fun. There weren't as many people as last year where I went either, but we also had a freak snow storm that evening too.

Oh I'm so envious. We had a snowstorm so I didn't venture out. I had pre-ordered it to ship...it better be in the mailbox today :-) Jacket is awesome!!!!

Thanks so much for your comment on my tutorial.... I am such an impatient crafter and when the mojo hits hate to take time out to write down everything, much less take pics, lol.

You look fabulous! Love the hair! I grabbed the dvd at Walmart. My almost 9yo wants a New Moon party for her birthday next month and I even found New Moon plates and napkins at Target! She is so excited! She wrote out a 2 page outline of what's going to happen at the party. She wrote down stuff like Bella Bacon, Jacob Juice, etc. for food! So cute!

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

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 "

Dream Big: Imagine Collaboration with Joy Clair

Hello! The Artists in Residence for Imagine had the wonderful opportunity to collaborate with Joy Clair. They sent us some fabulous stamps, and I really love them. The stamps have such beautiful details, and there are many many options within each set. I chose to work with the Dream Big Clear Stamp Set. It features a big dream catcher with feathers and beads that you can place as you wish.  It's linework is so fine, that I knew that VersaFine ink would be the perfect ink for these stamps. But first, I chose to spritz some Fireworks! on to my watercolor paper. I focused on keeping the color up where I would place the dream catcher later. After the Fireworks! dried, I inked up the hoop of the dream catcher and stamped it out. Then I "built" the rest of the dream catcher using the beads and feathers that are also in the set. It was so much fun to create the rest of the piece. After I was happy with the beads and feathers, I drew a "string" with a PITT pen
