How To Get Beat Up By Twilight Fans

Everyone keeps asking me if I'm going to go see the new Twilight movie and I gotta tell you... I'm not.

I enjoyed the books! I've even read them more than once (really not that big of a recommendation as I typically read books more than once) BUT the movies suck people!

Like really suck.

Like, seriously Stephenie, couldn't you have held out for a better budget? JK Rowling did and her fans aren't nearly as psychotic as yours are.

Here's the thing--I've seen the first two movies and you know what? I swear I've never laughed so hard in my entire life!

I mean can't breathe, stitch in your side, pee your pants and nearly vomit sort of laughing. I get together with my girlfriends and we watch them for the sole purpose of laughing our rear ends off.

So when people ask me if I want to go see Breaking Dawn with them I say, "You really don't want me in the theatre with you. I'm likely to get us both beat up."

Imagine it! A room full of squealing women (ages 16-80 ::shiver::) all acting like the Beatles have just walked into the room and Cannwin.... laughing her head off.

It's like a spark on a can of gasoline.

It's like an ember in a dry old wheat field.

It's just not a good idea. So, no... I won't be going to see Breaking Dawn with you my dears. Sorry.

I've heard Breaking Dawn was a slight bust, that it "wasn't as good" as the first two. I've also heard that BD has an unnecessary honeymoon scene that could have been left out. That really makes me mad. I don't advocate the movies (or the books) at all.

the first one really was awful. They got better after that. Not great but better. Breaking Dawn is the same, just better. They kind of remind me of Mormon movies like the RN and stuff, super cheesy. That being said, I will still go to he very last one and enjoy myself. I did get a kick out of all the teen girls around me oohing and ahhing and squealing. Loved them, they made it all worth it. P.S. I am team Jasper.

I liked it :) I want to drag Dustin to it too but I think he'll be able to tell as soon as we get in the car when we're heading there :)
Cannwin said…
Polly, I'm totally team Jacob. He's just better. :)

Meaghan, I wouldn't even want to take Ralexwin. He'd either be so uncomfortable that he'd spoil it with his squirming or he'd get mad at me for luring him in and we'd end up arguing. Well, at least thats how it is with most chick flicks... I can't even imagine Twilight. He won't even touch the books!

I haven't read the books but hear they are really good. The first 2 movies were okay but I am not planning on paying to see the 3rd until it is available at redbox.

Altered Shoe Art: Ring Holder Shoe Tutorial

This was my week two craft for So You Think You're Crafty. I placed third that week for this one. I thought you might enjoy finding out how I made it.


I tried about a million different decorations before settling on one that didn't drown out my rings. I wanted them to the focal point. This is also why I went with black fabric and not something more vivid.

Don't be intimidated by the lack of 101 I'm giving you. It really is a straight forward sort of project. If you know how to use a glue gun without burning yourself you can do this. Just be sure to dust off your imaginative brain space first. :)

The one important thing you might be wondering is how I got the pink fabric to stick to the shoe. I really just Mod Podged it on.

There are several different ways to make ring tubes that you can find online. One I saw used that colored foam paper stuff that you find in the kids craft section. I thought that might have been easier, but I had scraps of batting lying around so I …

How-To Pretend You Work For Anthropologie

The problem with Anthropologie is that they cost way too much money. WAY TOO MUCH! I mean, come on--these book boxes:

Cost $68-$188!

Do you have that kind of money?

I don't, but you know what I do have? I have a library with a cart full of free books that no one really cares about! So guess what I did... I made my own (and then I gave them away because I really don't have anywhere to put them).

Here's how.

I Am A Phoenix

This is a drawing I did right after my divorce, when I was trying to discover my life's course and who I was as a person. Divorce is this horrendously nasty thing that leaves a person with little to nothing of who they were before (at least that's how it was for me). My family was gone, at one point I had counted up blood/legal relatives that had stopped talking to me and it was nearly 60. Things were bad, but one of the recurring comments I heard from other divorcee's was 'Get bitter, or get better.' So I aimed for better. I came up with my own personal code of conduct (Quiet Dignity) and my own personal motto.

The motto the drawing is based off of is: 
"I am a Phoenix. I was born for the fire and I will rise from the ashes."
But, that's not all. Each aspect of the drawing has meaning. I researched these... so I hope I got them right. lol
I chose to make my image reminiscent of a mandala with the most significant parts at the very center. The shape i…
