Going Private

For the benefit of friends and family. (Yes, you will truly benefit from this.) I've decided to go private for several reasons. One - I've been thinking about it for a long time. Two - I really want to post pictures, but with mine and my husbands computer education combined, we are all too aware of the safety limits of the internet. Hence, few pictures of family here.
For the benefit of all others, I am starting a new blog. There I will post all about my projects. Which seem to be never ending at the moment. But, hey. You will be able to find all old and new posts on that blog. So on December 1st this blog will be going private. If you want to continue viewing my personal blog please leave a comment for me, and I'll email you an invitation. (If I don't have your email address please leave it in your comment. I just won't approve it to be viewed.)

The Twighlight Movie

With so many people going giddy with anticipation, I must say I'm very skeptical about the movie. I loved the Twilight series. The author is talented and creative and I enjoyed reading it. If you ask my opinion on the books, I'll admit to having specific things about each novel that I did not appreciate, but I'll tell you that overall I really enjoyed them.

When it comes to the movie however, I'm not sure I want to watch it. Let's just say, the trailer made me feel like the movie would be a complete let-down. Let me explain that. I have a very specific visual of the characters, the locations, and the events in the book. (That's what reading is all about.) But watching the trailer, I already felt that it was not a good portrayal of the book. (At least, it's not the way I would portray it.)

So - when I recently saw this spoof on the trailer I found it hilarious. Some, I am sure find it a mockery of a totally awesome movie. But that's the point. I feel that the movie will end up being a mockery of a totally awesome book.

Girly Garden Room

I better have a little girl someday because I already see things and think about making them for a daughter. This is one of the cutest girls rooms I have seen lately. I'm going to use it as inspiration for my sons next room. (Except it will be cars, trains, and planes as the theme.)

Check out the room here on Cup of Coco's Blog. The details in this room are amazing!
