Welcome to The True Blood Challenge

Author: Sara // Category: ,
Once upon a time, in two not-so-far away lands, two women bumped into each other in the Twitterverse and immediately bonded over their mutual love of Twilight. As they traveled the blogosphere together, they realized that Edward wasn't the only thing they had in common: they also loved to craft. Despite never having met each other in real life, a beautiful friendship was formed. With the premiere season of True Blood, the two women soon found another mutual obsession to swoon over together. It was during their hiatus of analyzing every episode that these kindred fangirls found themselves in a serious True Blood withdrawal. Thus this blog was born: an excuse for us to incessantly Google pictures of Eric Northman a place for all who are interested to share their love of crafting and True Blood. So open up a bottle of O Positive and make yourself at home..



Each Tuesday, we'll present you with a themed challenge. Our only rule is that you be respectful of everyone by keeping your submission rated PG. Think of it as an extra challenge.  ;) Weekly winners will get a badge with bragging rights.


On the first Thursday of each month, a monthly challenge will also be posted. For the first few months, the focus will be on predictions for Season 3. Monthly winners will get some swag along with a badge and bragging rights.


Our first challenge begins on March 9. In the meantime, we are looking for crafters to be part of our design team. Details can be found here.


We hope you will join us in the fun. Please tweet, blog, Facebook, email about the blog to anyone and everyone you think might be interested. The more, the merrier!


Until then, we leave you with a little (too much?) information about your hostesses.

1.  What attracts you most to True Blood?
Cheryl: Eric Northman. Just kidding... well, a little. I read the books after going through a Twilight withdrawal, and while it admittedly took me some time to get into them, I was hooked by Book 3. Allan Ball has done a wonderful job of bringing the story to life, creating just the right mix of darkness and comedy.
Sarabeth: Vampires in general always drew my attention in books.  Once I saw the coming attractions and realized Allan Ball was behind this amazing series, I knew I would be "sucked" right in!

2.  If Vampires really "came out of the coffins", would you fight for Vampire Rights or would you join the Fellowship of the Sun?
Cheryl: Vampire Rights activist in the house!
Sarabeth: Me too!  Me too!!!!!

3.  If you were a vamp, would you mainstream and drink True Blood, or would you feed the old-fashioned way?
Cheryl: I would be an "old-fashioned" vamp. What's the fun of being one otherwise? *evil grin*
Sarabeth: I would definitely mainstream...there'd always be the opportunity for you to play the "old-fashioned" vamp.

4.  Are you team Bill, team Sam or team Eric?
Cheryl: Bill and Sam, who? Team Eric all the way, baby!
Sarabeth: E-R-I-C Eric, Eric, gooooooooooooooooooo team Eric!  LOL, I won't lie...I did drop Bill like a leaf after Season 1.

5.  Who would you want as your BFF?
Cheryl: Lafayette and Pam (as long as she doesn't try to drain me)
Sarabeth: Lafayette or Tara.  She seems like the type of gal you want to have your back.

6.  Would you rather hang out in Fangtasia or Merlotte's?
Cheryl: Fangtasia. See my answer to question 4.  :)
Sarabeth: I would hang out at Merlotte's for a nice lunch or daytime beverage...definitely hitting Fangtasia for a good night out though :)

7.  Which character would you least want to meet in a dark alley?
Cheryl: Maryann. Just the thought makes my skin crawl.
Sarabeth: Hoyt's mom!

8.  How do you feel about Season 3 Spoilers being revealed?
Cheryl: I'm impatient, so I'm totally down with the spoilers.
Sarabeth: I LOVE THEM!  When I find a really good one, I have to read it over and over...I just can't help myself!

9.  To read or not read the Sookie Stackhouse novels?
Cheryl: I've read them all and am anxiously awaiting the next one's release in May. They're so different, they don't spoil the show for me in the least. I'm hoping they televise Chapter 6 of Book 4 soon.  ;)
Sarabeth: I'm going with to not read since I cannot even get through book 1.  I will eventually try to work that out.

10. What can you "bring" to the True Blood Challenge?
Cheryl: A healthy obsession laced with fun and humor.
Sarabeth: Ditto.

Dude! Book 4 RULES!!! Chapter 6!!! CHAPTER 6!! SB, if you can get past the first two books...you're good to go. Book 3 starts the obsession. I only made it through to 3 because I'd basically promised Beth I'd do it. I'm so, so so glad I did!!!! From then on..HOT HOT HOT.
