I am SO excited about the weather today. You have NO idea! It's a gloomy, windy, rainy, beautiful glorious Forks day. Ah I love Forks days. :)
But it is especially appropriate, because today I am hosting the Twilight Ball at my library. There are 3 of these balls scheduled for MCPL - one in each county - and we were the lucky branch selected for Jackson county. I have had SO much fun with this. SO much fun. I have spent most of the past couple days stringing up lights to make a scene that looks like Edward and Bella's prom dance, and we covered a wall in black paper and are hanging posters and favorite quotes from the books all over the wall. Let's just suffice it to say that the children's area has had a significant makeover!! Personally I think it looks much better this way and I would prefer to leave the lights up all the time.
One of my coworkers brought in some speakers and a subwoofer, as we're playing the movie on our projector screen and the sound quality it has is pretty terrible. But now, with our speaker setup, we're going to have some pretty sweet awesome sound, and I think we all might just forget that we're in a library. It's a real shame we don't have a separate room for this occasion - I kind of feel badly for the normal library patrons who might be in tonight. But oh well.
So remember how I was supposed to have finished the honeymoon scrapbook by now? Well...it's almost done. I have ONE page left. But I've been temporarily neglecting the project in favor of another. I'm making a sweater that looks like Bella's prom sweater. Pretty much that equals I bought a plain, boring white sweater...and am sewing on all kinds of appliques and beads and stuff and making it personalized! I doubt I'll ever wear it, aside from when I'm dressing up as Bella. But that's definitely not the point. Did I mention tonight is a costume party??
Photos coming soon... I promise!
