Tuesday Twilight Saga Update

I am up to my ears and eyeballs in New Moon party stuff. I'm pretty sure I'm driving everyone around me CA-RAZY with all of it. I just can't help myself. You see all of that "stuff" in the box...well, it started out as a small collection of things for my New Moon party and it's turned into a HEAPING pile in a matter of weeks. I've got plans for making invitations, a banner, center pieces, goody bags (aka swag bags)...then there is the decor, the food, and the fun (of course)...which require lots and lots of planning. I'm no longer hosting the party at someone's house, but at the hotel, and that has brought on a whole new set of obstacles. However, everything will be done by November 19th! It has Twilight happiness depends on it. I don't want to have any regrets of things I wish I had done. I realize there is always Eclipse, but who wants to wait until June 2010? Not me. In the next few weeks, I'll be posting pics of finished projects, so check back if you're interested in witnessing some Twilight craziness. I should be committed. Truly.
I wanted to give a few shout-outs to some Etsy sellers. Thanks to them I have found some fabulous and fun items that will be going in my "swag bags":
  • Shabby Sneakers - cute iron-on transfers w/ Twilight sayings ($7) and a New Moon domino necklace ($10-12) - these are actually not going in the swag bags, just a little something for me. :)
  • ElectrikPinkPirate's Curios from California - super cool vampire bite mark temporary tattoos ($1.50/4 sets)
  • AJ Sweet Soap - adorable mini vampire teeth soaps ($6.00/20). She also has a "Jacob" soap, wolf howling at the moon...that may be my next purchase!
  • Twimom - you can get your very own pdf file full of New Moon party planning including games, invites, and tons of extras! ($8)

I've also found some wax vamp teeth at Oriental Trading and of course New Moon Candy at Walgreen's. Another fun item I picked up at Walgreen's were these warewolf gloves...thought they would make a cute game prize...especially for a Team Jacob person!

Hopefully tomorrow or Thursday I'll be able to show you the New Moon banner I've been working on!

Hope everyone is having a great week so far!♥
