It's Twilight Time Again!
I made a new series of Twilight inspired sign this past week. After doing my last craftshow and seeing how well the previous group of signs sold, I decided to make some new sayings.
When I was a teenager, we watched Dark Shadows, a daytime soap based on a vampire family. I remember racing home from junior high school to catch the latest episode.
I don't recall just how long Dark Shadows was aired on daytime tv but I don't think it was a staple of daytime television for very long.
Dark Shadows did make a resurgence on late Friday night tv sometime in the early 80's, if I remember correctly. It did have a sort of cult following at the time.
I haven't been able to quite wrap my brain around the appeal to the mostly female audience that this series has. From young girls to 20-somethings to older married women.....maybe it's that forbidden love thing it has going on.
Whatever the fascination is, it has brought forth a healthy, inspiring interest in reading with young girls...now to just get the young boys up off the couch and interested.
