Care Bears Bracelet - aww yeah baby! I've been listening to this new 80's radio station and I have been rocking it out and channeling my old, middle-school-aged self. You know what, I just realized something as I wrote that, I've often thought of "the 80's" as my high school years, but I was in HS from 92-96. Hm, weird. Anyway, I've been thinking about the fads of the 80's and yes, I was a fan of the Care Bears. This bracelet cracks me up! I would never wear it, but you have to admit it is sort of cute, all of that Care Bear goodness! It doesn't feature my Care Bear though - Birthday Bear!
Mixed tape soaps - made from a mold of an actual cassette tape. Classic. Is this an 80's or 90's thing? I'm not sure ... most of my mix tapes were from the 90's, probably because I was older then and had established some favorite artists. And my mixed tapes were filled with Dirty Dancing songs, mixed with some Sinead O'Connor and Bryan Adams. Yesssss. Ipods are cool and all and I dig the "Genius" mixes, but creating a mix tape for someone, and being able to insert your own introductions to the songs, was AWESOME.
Crocheted hair ties - whoah! From the rainbow 80's to hair ties. Sorry to give you whiplash there. I do like these ties though, especially the button centers.
Jack beads - is it too early for Halloween? I salivated when I saw these!
DIY 2010 calendar panel - I have been eyeing this for about a month now! I need to buy it now so that I actually get one made up before 2010.
