Twilight: Free Fonts and New Project

For those of you that haven't figured it out already, I am obsessed with the Twilight series by Stephanie Meyer. I have read over and over again all four books. I was mildly annoyed by the first movie, but overall it was a decent representation of the book. I have higher hopes for the New Moon Movie because of a new director and promises to stay closer to the book for this storyline. But I digress.... Long story short, I have been doing many Twilight inspired crafts lately. Some for my own enjoyment, some for my store and some for swaps. In order to do some of these crafts, I've been searching the web for various stuff to help me out. One of the things I've come across is various free font downloads that match the fonts used on the book covers and in the books for various characters' handwriting. * I downloaded the fonts, printed out a sampling and compared them to the books. They do indeed all appear to match the ones used in the books. I used the fonts to create two projects:

These beauties are two wooden apples I found at a thrift store (woot!). I printed out the words using just regular paper and used modge podge to seal them on the apples. Ta-Da! A simple project for a Twilight lover to decorate her book shelf with.
Happy Crafting!

I passed!

Hey all! I just thought I'd drop a quick post to say I got word today that I passed the bar exam! Hooray! So now I just have to be sworn in a couple of weeks from now and I will be officially an attorney. I am pretty excited and am off now to throw together a bbq/celebration party this evening.
Happy Crafting!

Great new blog and Swap News

So, I just found this great new blog. It's called Craft Fail. It's all about failed attempts at crafts. I thought it was great. It shows that some crafters are not afraid to show their good ideas gone wrong....or their not so good ideas come to life...whichever they may be! :) I feel like a blogging slacker lately! I am planning on getting a tutorial up here very shortly! I need to make a project for a swap on Craftster. My latest swap is Another Crafty Detective Swap. The person I'm crafting for doesn't know I'm the one crafting for them. Similarly, I don't know who is crafting for me. It's mind-boggling and frustrating, but in a fun way. ;) I have finished all my projects for the Wine Themed Swap and sent off that package today. I will upload some photos of the finished products (which I am way excited and happy with) when my partner has received. That's all my crafty news for now! I do plan on making some more stuff this week to put in my store as well.

Happy Crafting!
