Beyond her incredulity she told me that if I didn't watch it she wasn't signing up for any more of my classes. And since she's in this Friday's Spring Kandi Canvas Class at the Scrapbook Cupboard, I thought it best to finally watch it. So I did.
First, let me say... I LOVE most things vampire, werewolf and all that paranormal type stuff. If you hadn't already guessed that by the listing of books at the bottom of my blog. I listen to them, I read them and I watch movies and TV shows about them. And I did read (ok, well listened) to Twilight. It just wasn't 'juicy' enough for me. I like the vampires to BITE! And sometimes I like them to maim, and kill, and to bite some more. Isn't that what they do? Personally, I thought the Vampires in Twilight were too tame. Yes, I know it was written for Young Adults. I realize that. So that's kinda why I dropped the series. Too many other good vampire/werewolf and paranormal books out there now. I haven't the time to dedicate to a series that I think is just OK.
But then someone had told me a couple weeks ago (or months, I can't remember) that I should give them another chance. Get the second book, that's when the werewolves come into play. So I ordered it from the library. I took a very long time for this audio book to come into the library but it's finally here. I just uploaded it to my ITunes and I'll start listening soon.
But not yet.
Right now I'm listening to the second in the Sookie Stackhouse series.
Living Dead in Dallas.
You know the series... the one where the girl is human, the guy is a vampire, where she can read everyone's mind except for that of Vampire Bill's. (Sound a little familiar???)
But the best part about Sookie and Bill. Bill BITES!!! Bill Kills. Bill Maims. Bill is a VAMPIRE! And it has shapeshifting people in it too! And although this book series didn't make it to the BIG screen, it's in production on it's second season on HBO. And because it's on HBO, you know you can see a little more skin too!
So right now. I'm still in love with Sookie and Bill. Bella and Edward can wait in line on my Ipod.

I also did a class using the new Memory Capsules. I'm not crazy over them. They have a place, they are fabulous for what they are. They just aren't for me. I'm not loving them. I'm just not someone who likes to make something bulky and then cover it over with a piece of plastic. If I make something bulky, I want to be able to touch it. So, Memory Capsules aren't for me. As a matter of fact, I didn't even take a picture of them before I handed them over to Bev. Oops.
Also another class I took on Saturday was with Hambly Studios. It was a transparency book. Nothing new, a book that you can see through the pages. Cute but not something I will be reteaching.
BUT!! On Saturday night we did the Make and Take Frenzy. And what I did there was show stopping. When I visited Mr. Holtz at the Ranger Make and Take I did This...You know you love it. I do too. It was easy and it's just stunning. This is also going to be a class. Two as a matter of fact. I'm betting there will be that many people interested in this. Both classes will be on Saturday, May 9th at the Scrapbook Cupboard. Just in time for Mother's Day!!
On Sunday, I helped Bev, the owner of the Scrapbook Cupboard, at the the vendor fair. She bought a ton of fabulous new goodies! Be sure to check the Scrapbook Cupboard's New Products section for when some of these new goodies will be in.
I saw a bunch of old friends and made a bunch of new friends at this years Gilman show. Overall the weekend went fabulously!
So, what's coming up? Tonight I'm teaching a Silhouette 102 class. I had to postpone last weeks because of the food poisoning. This Friday is the Metal Fairy class. There's still some room if anyone is interested. And next week, another Silhouette 102 class and then the Spring Kandi class....
All 4 of these classes are offered at the Scrapbook Cupboard. Call today to sign up! (508)378-0008.
So, I hope I've sated those of you who are working and need something to read. Right now, I'm off to start some tacos and make dinner for the family before I'm off to work myself!
