YAY!  I love announcing winners!!!  And this one is a special one for me since the prize features so many of my own designs!!! I want to thank everyone who participated in this Twilight:  Breaking Dawn Pt. 2 Blog Hop (click HERE if you haven't done the hop yet.  There are some awesome projects!!!).... I so wish I had prizes for everyone.  Without further adieu, here's the blog candy winner!!! Laura B said... Your keepsake box is so gorgeous! Such a beautiful way to keep your memories!:) Awesome candy, too! Laura B, check your email, I just sent you a quick "Congrats" message. Welp, that does it for today.  I hope everyone has a wonderful AND SAFE Thanksgiving holiday tomorrow.  I'm off to chop up some celery and onions this evening.  I'm not exactly thrilled with chopping onions so I saved it for the very last thing before bed tonight.  Now that I've completed this post..... I no longer have excuses to procrastinate!!!  So here goes nothing. 

Twilight: Breaking Dawn Blog Hop

YAYAYAYAYYAYAYAYAYAYAY!!!!  IT'S HERE!!!  Breaking Dawn pt. 2 opens today and we're kicking the fun off with a Twilight Breaking Dawn Blog Hop!!!!  You should be arriving from Kelli's blog.  Isn't her tag AWESOME!?!?!   If you're just now joining the hop, you WILL want to start the hop at the beginning... trust me, you don't want to miss anything from this group of talented ladies.  Here's the whole hop list: Alison Laura Rebecca Kelli ME<== You Are HERE!!! Sugar Stephanie And now for MY project.... BE SURE TO CHECK OUT MY BLOG CANDY AT THE END!!! Here's my Twilighty keepsake box!!!  I had an absolute BLAST making this box and will be using it to hold all my pictures from Forks and La Push as well as pics from the various premiere parties I've attended/hosted over the years. This originally started out as a faux book box.  I painted the spine black using acrylic paint and covered the rest using paper from the DCWV Immortal Love


Ok, so the movie officially opens on the 16th, but TOMORROW I will be taking in a 15 hour Twilight marathon that will end with a viewing of Breaking Dawn pt 2!!!  I'm sooooo excited!  For those of you who cannot join me for the marathon, please swing back by my blog here tomorrow because I'm ALSO participating in a Twilight Breaking Dawn Blog Hop and created something VERY special that I CAN'T WAIT to show off tomorrow.  Please tune in..... I HAVE TWILIGHTY BLOG CANDY!!!

Who Needs Sleep?

Yeah, I'm excited.... FOUR MORE DAYS!!!  Here's a card that I made to kick things off this week.  This one is actually a FitterTwit original design.  Yepper gang, I created the chess pieces you see here.  This Twilight fantasy world that I live in inspires some pretty cool stuff  (Click HERE and HERE to see more)!  I DO love this one!!!  And wait till you see what's coming later in the week (pssst.... I'm participating in a Twilighty blog hop on Thursday)!!! The chess piece digi IS available for purchase!!!  Kick me off an email to if you're interested.  Price is $4.00 and will be sent in JPG format.  I also have a wolf digi, a paw print digi and an apple for sale as well for $3.00 each (click the link above to check out the apple).  All are JPG format. ***I used Spectrum Noir markers to color this image:  IG1, IG2, IG4, IG9, DR7, CR5, CR7

Special Christmas Gifting

Yep, it's official... the Christmas shopping season is well underway.  Right now there isn't a single major chain out there that isn't COMPLETELY decked out in Christmas cheer, but while they are all gearing up for their holiday profiting, I'm reminded that supporting our small business folks is probably the greatest gift we can actually give to our struggling economy this Christmas.  I believe it is the greatest gift we can give OURSELVES!!! And the Institute For Local Self-Reliance agrees with me.  As published in their December 24th article from LAST Christmas, Top 10 Reasons To Support Locally Owned Businesses , they site some pretty great reasons that benefit us all!  My favorites on the list are building community prosperity and creating competition to ensure innovation and lower pricing over the long term.  I also feel pretty good about supporting someone's kid going to school rather than supporting some no-name "CEO purchase a 3rd vacation home"
