Been feeling like it's 1993

Stepped out into the rain in Dr. Martens..
My jumongous foot on the left (it's the angle, okayyy) and PJ's 8-holes on the right.

Went to my godson's Raffy's Sports-themed 1st birthday party in inline skates as a Roller Derby player..

Yes, I can still do all the tricks I used to do when I was 10! HAH!
(beside me is our friend Dustin in his authentic longboarder costume)

Obsessing over DMC's...

And since it was a friend-slash-client's birthday earlier this month, I decided to make a bracelet for her.
This is how you make the twisty-ties at the ends: Part the thread in 2, twist both to the left, and then rotate clockwise.

The finished product. Totally random pattern -- I just did whatever felt nice!

Ahhh, and I made a charm for the bracelet as well. It's made of 99.9% recycled silver.
You know the silver from used x-ray film? Well, some (awesome) company collects and turns them into silver for jewelry! 

I need to find a better way to print my name than this scratchy craft knife way. If you look closely, there's a date stamped on it. Her birthday is on Aug 1, and that's when I made this.

And then at last Saturday's Craft Club Session, I made this for myself:
The task was to get one bead/charm (I got the silver stopper) from 1 old bag charm, and then make something from it.

Finally, what's the 90's without a bit of sountrippin? 1993 gave birth to a lot of hits!! That year was golden!! I have a bajillion mems connected to these songs!! haha
