Well consider me a bit obsessed.

I bought the first book thinking that I'll give it a try and see what all the fuss is about.

Now I'm done book one and two and I'm literally aching to get my hands on book three (and four).....and see the movie.

And I have a confession to make....

I have a huge crush on Edward. Book Edward AND movie Edward.

The Twilight girls night out is December 5th. I only hope I can hold out that long to see it! ;)

My favorite magazine is no more, but I stumbled across a new online magazine today (thanks to LJC) that looks awesome!

Check it out....Craftier!

My favorite magazine has published its last issue and I'm SO disappointed. Thankfully the website will keep going for now.

Check it out here.

Not a happy blogger.

I got two wisdom teeth pulled just over a week ago. The procedure was painless (yay!), recovery was quite easy (yay!)....but I knew there had to be a catch.

Now, there is this awful taste in my mouth. I've been told its just part of the healing process and I need to do my salt water rinse more often. Because of this I'm grumpy and can't come up with anything fun to blog about at the moment.

To anyone who has gone through DEEPEST sympathies. It sucks!

I consider myself very fortunate. I have a lot of pretty awesome friends in my life. So I feel especially lucky to have met another group of girls in the last six months who have been a true source of joy (and laughter) to me. Because of them I am inspired to get crafty and make something for them.

The details....

Sorry I can't say on here yet because I think a few of them are aware of this little corner on the web.

However, in my usual blog rounds, there's been SO much crafty inspiration that I've been saying "oooh " "oooh" at every click. And the best part...all of these have free patterns/tutorials.

(Click the pics for details)

I'm generally in awe of everything Amy Butler.
Her snow mum pillow cover is no exception.

I've been itching to make a new scarf.
Since I have yet to master knitting, this altering
pattern crochet one will do just fine.

Awesome t-shirt embellishment tutorial!

Paper beads! Paper beads!

I'm sure there's tons I've missed out there.

What has inspired you lately?

Let's get this! ;)

Yes yes, haven't blogged in a while...feel bad about it....blah blah blah.

Now to the blogging.

I can't say that I've ever bought anything online. But that's not to say that I don't enjoy online shopping. The problem usually is that the stuff I fall in love with, is usually from an American site, and that involves the exchange rate, shipping costs and custom costs. So in the end, its not normally worth the trouble.

That being said, here are the things I've coveting at the moment...

There's just something about this.
The red, the if only Santa would listen.

Yup, 'tis (almost) the season. I love this take on the traditional wreath.

I lost my pretty blue umbrella, so I think replacing it
with a pretty pink one would work nicely.

Not quite a solitaire, but so cute!

I don't even drink coffee, but I love this!

What are some of your cool online finds?
