sips n strokes

so, if any of you didn't know, i am slightly obsessed with twilight. i read all of the books in just a few days. the author, Stephanie Meyer, had some chapters that didn't make it in the books on her website, which i, of course, read too. AND she started writing a book from edward's perspective (twilight is from bella's perspective) that ended up being leaked out. she didn't want to finish it, but put it online for others to read. i read all 200 something pages of it, and it isn't even halfway done! i really want her to finish that book.

i got a few of my friends hooked on twilight. my friend mary, who i got hooked on twilight, found a class at sips n strokes where we painted something from twilight. so she signed us up and we went! i had never been before, and i didn't really know what to expect. everyone i went with had been there before, so they kind of filled me in. it was only $25 and we got to take our paintings home that night!

i'm not going to lie. i'm not an artist....

we started with a white canvas and had to paint it all black. then we put a little red where we wanted...


mary was sitting right across from me, so i got a lot of picture of her :)


we had to draw the stem of the flower, and then draw the flower. i drew mine, then wanted it to be bigger. so that's kind of why it looks weird. yes, i'm making up excuses as to why mine looks bad...

and the finished product! i sat there and kept adding to it. i didn't think it looked very good, especially compared to the teacher's. but now that i haven't been staring it for 2 hours, i don't think it looks too bad.


i'm proudly displaying my work of art :) and hopefully i'll go back soon to do more! i'll make sure to chose something that looks a little easier.


here's our group, minus one. she had to leave right after we finished. from left to right, melissa, me, mary, and sarah. and we all love twlight!!


oh, and they had a class where they painted a picture of edward from twilight. i laughed.


i told chris we were going to hang the picture above our bed. i was just kidding though. he hates twilight. but our bathroom is red, so i think i might hang it in there. and chris doesn't mind that either.

i can't wait to go back. i think my mom and i are going to try to go sometime. it's a lot of fun!

Have you read the books? The book was so much better than the movie. I'm hoping this movie will be better though. I thought the books would be kind of dumb, but I was sucked in. And thanks! That's very sweet of you! I'm liking it more now, since I haven't been staring it for a while.

You should totally read them! At least read the first one, and then see if you want to continue. I got hooked. I would stay up until 2 in the morning reading. They were pretty addicting. And thanks for the website! I can't wait to shop :)
