I happened to run into the Hallmark store earlier this week to get a card for a friend (whether or not I will actually get it in the mail is a different story because I suck at that) and I got a little sidetracked looking at those musical cards.
A while back sparklefortwilight (check out her blog here) had mentioned she saw Twilight cards in Hallmark so I knew they existed but I never seemed to see them in my local Hallmark store, but I had no problem checking any time I ran in there over the past few months. You can imagine my surprise when I did find not 1, not 2, but 3 different musical cards. Two were from New Moon with the music from Bella driving into the parking lot and one card was just Edward with the opening music from Twilight. My apologies to whoever ends up buying those cards because my daughter and I kept playing them over and over. One of the New Moon cards had both Edward and Jacob on it and was listed under a section that said for "Teen Girl." Ummm...Hallmark...do you think you could add a new section called, "For The Inner Teen Girl?" Just a suggestion.
As we are heading out I look over and realize all the Christmas ornaments are out for that "Christmas in July." Three-year-olds love looking at ornaments, so mini-TT and I went to look for all of her favorite characters. As we found Snoopy, Tinkerbell, Barbie, etc. the thought occurs to me, if Hallmark has a Twilight license for cards...could they? No. Would it be possible? Probably not. But maybe is there a designer for ornaments out there who might also be a Twilight fan and give me a perfect little Twilight freak flag for my Christmas tree?
Why yes there is!
So Cute!!! Edward even has amber eyes and wears his little wristband!!
I may or may not have bought the store out and already given these out to Twilight friends and family--there was no way I could wait until Christmas!!
Merry Christmas in July to me!!!
Run to your nearest Hallmark store and buy one for yourself or your Twilighty buddies. Maybe if these fly off the shelves it will help to ensure this is the first in a
neverending series and we will have future versions of Edward and Bella from New Moon, Eclipse, the Breaking Dawns and maybe even all of the Cullens!!! (I might even considering having a Jacob and the wolfpack ornaments if the series gets that big, though I'm hoping the Hallmark designers are just Team Edward.) Can you imagine a whole Christmas tree dedicated JUST to Twilight? I can.
And if you don't celebrate Christmas, I think this still would make a nice addition to your Twilight collection. Keep in mind, it's only fair that Edward should be represented, too.
When it comes to Twilight, don't bother waiting until the holidays, care enough to buy yourself the very best today!
