I'm here, really...

I have been so engrossed in the Twilight Saga by Stephenie Meyer that I haven't been doing much besides reading these four giant books. They're huge! But I've finally finished all of them, and despite feeling a little empty because of not being able to read more about Edward and Bella, I'll be getting back to work! More monsters, more crayon rolls, more covered button goodness, more everything is on it's way! I promise! If you like the little green monsters/aliens, you'll also love what else I have coming...wait and see!

Attack of the Fuzzy Green Monsters...And Twilight

If you can't handle incredible cuteness, you better stop reading now. I know I've mentioned my newfound love of "in-the-hoop" embroidery projects before, so this will be no surprise: Monsters! Made on my embroidery machine!

I can't decide if they're monsters or aliens, but either way, I think they're simply adorable. So far I've only made them in green, but I just bought some wonderfully purple fuzzy fleece and cannot wait until that fleece turns into monsters. There's also some hot pink faux fur monsters in the works, too. Ah, if I only had more time. The little green guys are up in the shop now.

Speaking of more time, I've recently been spending time doing something I used to do quite often: Reading books. Since marriage, baby, work, and small (tiny) business all came into my life, reading has been saved for vacation time. I almost feel guilty now, when I try and read a book...I feel like I should be doing something else. That was until I finally broke down and bought Twilight. I could not stop reading this book. Then, when I finished that one, I went out the next day and bought the next book in the series, New Moon. I just started this one, and I can't wait until I can pick it up again. I'm already plotting how I can get my work done AND read at the same time. How bad is that? I guess you can officially call me a Twilight Addict.

Oh, and Team Edward all the way. Seriously. How could you NOT fall in love with this fictional vampire?
