A Little Late Getting on the Bandwagon...

Hello friends- Well, I'm still trying to get out of the blogging funk I've been in recently; sometimes figuring out what to say is really the hardest part. So, I finally found something!

The inspiration for this post is to admit my new fixation on the Twilight series. I was vehemently opposed to it until last week - Mostly due to the fact that it's on an 8th grade reading level with an occasional SAT word thrown in for sport (I was an English major with a penchant for classics). But since I've had to pack up my booths and haven't found much to list online, I've felt restless and a little down. So, I decided to at least give them a try. Believe it or not, reading this series has sparked my everpresent (but dormant) infatuation with mysterious topics.

I'm an Anne Rice fan & Buffy the Vampire Slayer (the first couple of seasons- it went downhill after Angel left) is my all time favorite T.V. program. So, naturally, anything with vampires peaks my interest. Let's just say, I read 500 pages of the second Twilight book in less than two days. Can we say obsessed?

So, now that the cat's out of the bag, who else admits they are a fan? Come on- I promise I won't tell!

On a side note, Ben and I are really moving to the DC area (Silver Spring, MD to be exact). Everything is in place and the ball starts rolling on the 9th (meaning the moving company comes to haul our stuff out).

Due to moving, I've had to close my booths here in Raleigh - I didn't realize how hard it would be. I feel so lost and restless. I'm not sure if I'll be able to have a booth in MD because I haven't found a Mall that is close enough yet. So, I'm thinking shows and online may be my main venues at this point. My first big show will be the DC Big Flea on September 19-20th. I've had smaller trunk shows with Panopolie/Ornamentea here in Raleigh but never anything as big as the Chantilly show. So, wish me luck!

Hopefully I'll be back to posting regularly soon. Maybe inspiration will be revived once we are in our new home...
