I'm totally obsessed with the Twilight series by Stephenie Meyer! I avoided the hype for months, telling myself that the books were not my cup-of-tea. On our way back from the Craft & Hobby Show, Deana Tierney put the book in my lap and said, "Read this." It took me a few weeks, but I finally opened the book. It took me 24 hours to finish. Amazing! I ran out to the store the next morning and purchased New Moon, the second book in the saga. I simply could not put the book down. The love story and adventures of Bella, the awkward teen, and Edward, the seductive vampire, kept me turning the pages. I can’t wait to start the third installment this weekend!

To prove that I am totally insane, I searched "Twilight" on Etsy to see what type of handmade items folks might be selling. To my surprise, there were 381 results. Here are some my favorites:

I'm Just a Bella Searching for My Edward T-shirt: Where was this shirt five years ago?
Twilight Quote Charms:
I'm totally purchasing some of these tonight!
The Jacob Black Charm Bracelet:
Doesn't every Twilight fan need one?
Twilight-Inspired Vegan Mineral Eye Shadows Sampler:
Perfect for upcoming Twilight release parties!

Are you obsessed with Bella and Edward, too?

She loves fantasy and is also an avid Harry Potter fan...my reading fun is usually spent with the likes of Judi Picoult, James Patterson or Ken Follett... But, I finally gave in to the pressure. I just finished Twilight...I have to admit it makes great bubble bath material! On to New Moon!
