The Four weeks of Twimas: Gifts that won’t embarrass you or anyone you love

Dear LTTers,

Each week leading up to Christmas, Hanukkah, the winter solstice & that K-holiday I won’t even attempt to spell, we’ve been sharing some Twi/LTT/Rob-related gifts that are sure to please your friends, family & that Unicorn at work you Twi-gossip with over lunch. Today we’re featuring one of our favorite LTT friends, Adrienne Trafford.

We first “met” Adrienne when we came across her print entitled “Deepest Loss.” We’ve used it on tons of tear-jerker LTT letters because it was inspired by Bella, left in the woods after Edward leaves (except Adrienne’s Bella is dressed way better than the real Bella!)

This holiday season, Adrienne is offering the Deepest Loss print for $10 in her Etsy Shop. What’s better than supporting an artist, giving a hand-made, not-mass produced gift (or keeping one for yourself) all while secretly supporting Twilight. That’s right, with Adrienne’s art hanging on your wall, everyone will admire the beautiful work without knowing at all that it’s an homage to Twilight!

Check out another favorite Twi-inspired piece that we love: Bella Pale White

Happy shopping!

Love,
UC & Moon

PS: And through the end of the day, the Bite Me Edward notepads are still 50% off when you use the code BITEME50

Oh, and yes- you’ll notice we have a NEW COMMENT SYSTEM! We’re trying it out on LTT first but I think you’ll love it. Comments won’t get squished, you can track what you said- and there are some cool features we can add as we go along. If you’re an often commenter, I suggest signing up with Disqus & use the same email you use for commenting NOW- that way you can choose the same picture- you’ll see an option to link from your gravatar account. Happy commenting & let us know if it’s not working right for you!

          UC testing as a fake user- you make no sense.. this was supposed to be a reponse to Bella Not An Addikt. OOPS!

          • Uc

            Yes- I told myself I make no sense…. not anyone else.. that would be mean. I’m not mean

      • Team Seth

        OMG! We can edit our comments?!!!! That’s so exciting!

        I just NOW saw this! Good Evening to you! Thanks for chatting with me last night, as always! (Its hard to find the replies???)

          replies are directly under the comment, but indented to the right slightly

  • Notanaddikt Bella

    Gah, that print is gorgeous! I remember the first time you featured Adrienne’s work here at LTT. I am very much inclined to buy one as a Twimas gift for myself… unfortunately, her shop doesn’t ship to Belgium (yet…)

    • Adrienne

      first thanks so much! and rats! it’s supposed to say “everywhere else” and mean Belgium too! I will go in and change that…

      • Midnight Cougar (MC)

        I just visited your Blog & wow, your work is beautiful. I see a hint of Folk Art in some of your prints. They are so graceful, very nice.

        • Adrienne

          thank you so much!

  • Midnight Cougar (MC)

    This is awesome, you will love Disquis. It is SO easy to use, just sign in, visit a site & comment. :-)

        oh watch out- Microsoft lovers are gonna come after me now as a “hater”!

          They’ll probably be wanting to spank my ass too b/c I’ve been shitting on IE for a while now. :-)

    *sigh*

    I swear I’m tech savvy. But this sucks. I cannot comment at all from my Android phone. I’m going to keep trying because even though it makes me sound like an idiot half the time due to all the wrong guesses for what I’m trying to type and things it is my main source to the internet/commenting. It’s right there. In my hand. Now I have to find a computer?

    *sigh*

    I’m being a complainer today. I’ve had a bad week. So, if you feel negativity wafting from me, I’m sorry. I’m usually SUPER upbeat, so I deserve a day, right? Right.

    • http://letterstotwilight.com UnintendedChoice

      EVERYONE deserves a day.. and really? why won’t it let you
      ohhh my dad has one & I work for him. Imma try on his phone now. Will report back

        Thanks UC, you’re the BEST! :D

        *returns to crabby mood*

        • http://letterstotwilight.com UnintendedChoice

          okay…. i used my dad’s android & it worked fine :/ email me with your problem or what is/isnt’ going right & I’ll see what I can do to help

          • Anonymous

            I’m inclined to think that it’s my phone’s issue. It’s an Android MyTouch. It apparently doesn’t play well with others and is a royal pain in my arse… I want a new phone. (says the woman who only got the phone earlier this year)

            Guess I’m going to have to make time to get to an actual computer to comment here. Boo. :(

            Goes to cry while everyone else is basking in the coolness.

            THANK YOU for all the work you put into trying to help me figure out how to get my phone and Disqus to play nice UC. You rock my dear.

    • Midnight Cougar (MC)

      Try signing into Disquis before you visit LTT, then you can just type your reply. Plus, you can reply to a reply that is already on your Diquis profile without having to go to the Blog site, do it directly in Disquis.

    Random comment alert!
    I was thinking about how poor cathy the cougemaster gets a rough deal from us and I suddenly realized – She actually cracked it the most. I mean, the undercurrent of sexuality (puts on tweed petticoat) but seriously, yes, NM and E were better in most things but didn’t have me getting all hot and bothered and having to sort myself afterwards. Bring back Cath! (actually not really but maybe they could ask her advice on a few things…)

    • http://letterstotwilight.com UnintendedChoice

      i LIKE your random comment……. and I wonder if we should explore this more…. like in a Twilosophy for tomorrow since right now I have nothing…. any other ideas, shoot me an email :):)

      Do you think the difference is female director vs. male? And can Condon overcome it?

      • TeamSeth

        Hm, interesting point. I wonder what chochang will say! I will say, Mr. Orange Pants seemed to have a fetish with Rob’s shoulder…

    • Midnight Cougar (MC)

      You know, you have a great point. Now, I’m not a fan of Cathy – don’t get me started on all the shit she should have included in Twilight & didn’t- BUT, she did give us the perfect Robward & I agree, she definitely brought to life, the original sexual chemistry b/w B & E, that we all felt when we read the book. So, yeah Cathy probably could give them some decent advice, but I’m afraid she’d need to feel-up Rob a little to “bring back that lovin’ feeling’.” Yuck, eww….. oh my, lmao!

    So I never signed up on Gravatar because I liked my little critter too much. Does anyone know if there is a way to save and use that random guy here? Or do I need to sign up and get a new Avi?

  • Team Seth

    Okay. My gravatar worked yesterday, why won’t it work today?! :’( Also, how do I edit my post?! ::whimpers::

    • http://letterstotwilight.com UnintendedChoice

      your avatar is showing & there should be an “edit” button under your comments? no?

      • Team Seth

        I can’t see the edit button! :S Do I have to be signed into my email I use for this s/n? I have “Flag” “Like” and “Reply” options. I think my gravatar just needed a cache catch up.

      • Anonymous

        I don’t have edit either, and why does it make log in to Disqus each time?

    • Midnight Cougar (MC)

      You can edit right in Disquis itself, where your comments show or/and as long as you are still signed into Disquis, while you are on LTT, you can Edit under your post by the Reply button.

    This new comment system has forced me to upload an avatar. It represents how I feel every time there’s a new post. (Suckup!)

  • kitkat

    Okay, need to try this out. We’ve got to be down with the kids, right? But help! I can’t use kitkat to make my disqus account… Suggestions?

    • http://letterstotwilight.com UnintendedChoice

      i’m confused….. it looks like you have an account.. and an avatar… is it not right?

      • kitkat

        I posted as ‘guest’ but I used my email linked to my gravatar account? When I tried to create a disqus account it said the name was taken. I’ll keep trying.

  • Anonymous

    Okay so thanks to UC (again) I am able to see comments, but am still fuzzy as to how to follow along, but I’ll get it!
    I am not sure who made the comment about Cathy and Twilight, but I so agree (maybe have even said it, thought it, a long time ago?) all I know is that it is Twilight that made me fall in love with Edward and the story. It was the way it was filmed I think, the blue tone (which I always thought was in my head not on the screen lol) the bedroom eyes, the cafe entrance, the passion etc., is what CH gave us and in my case, sucked me in (twss). EVERY time I watch it I get “that” feeling and sadly though I watch NM right after Twlight I don’t ever feel that same intensity. Almost like the director (whatever his name is) spent more time trying so hard to bring a better quality movie to the screen that he missed the mark when it came to the passion/emotion of the characters? I can’t wait to see Eclipse, hopefully it will be more like Twilight for me! I only have a few more days to wait…(I am bribing Twi-daughter to buy it for me as an early Christmas present) :)..
    Thanks so much UC for helping me with posting! xoxo

    Beooootiful. Both the print and the comments ;) Does this mean the haters can’t hate any more though? You can down-thumb the whole article, but you can’t bring the hate to individuals any more? What kind of an internet thingy is this?!?!?
    PS *sarcasm* for those who haven’t had their coffee yet this morning.

    love love love!

    Bring back the thumbs down! I enjoy both the controversy and the mystery of whodunit. If it were possible I’m sure I’d get a bunch right now for admitting that. Maybe I’ll post more often though, without the fear of a thumbs down. My record is currently clean, but then again this is only like my 5th comment in 8 months. *back to lurking hole*

        Phonetic for Disqus? I think it’s just a “fun” spelling for discuss.
