TTMT: Printing in thread and plastic

I uploaded this last night to YouTube, but I didn't want to stay awake for it to finish doing its thing. XD First chance I've had to post today!

Okay. Okay.
Whenever we reblog those lists of hotlines for people to call in an emotional crisis, part of me always thinks, “you know what? Talking on the phone fucking blows.”
And I’ve spoken to people mid-crisis who ABSOLUTELY REFUSE to call a number, because you know what? Talking on the phone fucking blows. IM is alright, typing things out to a faceless screen, it’s so much easier than using your voice most of the time. If only there was some sort of chat-based hotline-
There is? It’s here?!
IMAlive is an IM-based support center, run entirely by well-trained volunteers who seriously do give a shit. It’s free, it’s confidential, and it WORKS.
If you’re hurting right now, PLEASE CLICK THE LINK.
If you’re feeling alright, but give half a damn about the people around you, SIGNAL BOOST THE FUCK OUT OF THIS.
I want everyone to know this exists. This is an option. You don’t have to be afraid.
Come and talk.

The link is www.imalive.org. As someone who's way more comfortable typing than speaking (especially on the phone, and especially when I'm feeling in the depths), I recognize what an incredibly important resource this is. Signal boost!

So, when will the court cases begin?
Or have they already? I'm referencing Fifty Shades of Grey, which I just recently found out about. It started it's life as Twilight fanfic. Now the author has a seven-figure publishing deal and is #1 on the New York Times paperback best seller's list. At what point does an author have to credit their major influence? Interesting questions, that I know have been hashed out many times before, but now that we have some real monetary value involved I'm wondering what this will stir up. Especially with the current court case with the artist that took the photographer's photos without permission and repurposed them.

TTMT: Buttons!

Tutorial: http://scissorspaperwok.com/2011/07/18/how-to-make-clothing-buttons-from-shrink-plastic/

I made buttons! I did it from entirely recycled materials and didn't have to buy a single thing for the project! *dances*

I want to make more. :)

TTMT: Socks!
It was a dark and stormy night...ok, so it isn't stormy, but it does look like it is going to rain. And it isn't that dark, but it is dark enough that it is hard to see me. It's the kitty's fault. Just watch. Socks!

I gave a two hour presentation today. I really, really hate giving presentations. Blah! And now I'm feeling a bit crazy...you can probably tell in the video. Socks!

TTMT: Knitting WIPs

Had a bit of a crazy week last week with an allergic reaction to something I ate at the beginning of the week and poor Tasha-cat getting fleas toward the end of the week. This week, I've started biking into work everyday again! This has also improved my eating habits as I get everything together the night before and drive it into campus when I pick tam_elbrun up from work. I think we might run out of everything from the farm share this week!

So, I just have a bit of progress on some WIPs to show. And a sugar glider. :)

A quick video at the end of a long day, before the storm really hits. I show off my socks and a sugar glider bag.

Bag tutorial:

I'm so behind on comments! And posts! I'll catch up eventually.
