mixed up.

Did you used to make mix tapes when you were a kid? I still have all of mine, they have all sorts of doodles all over them and probably some Lisa Frank stickers. It's kind of a special moment when you finally put together the perfect mashup of songs, don't you think?


I wish I still had a cassette player so I could make tapes. But I do have my record player and a computer. What are you listening to these days? Give me anything, a song, album, band. I need some mix music in my life.

I just preordered this little ditty. They're on my all time favorite list.

I'm off to listen to something that will make me smile and craft. Be sure to let me know what you're listening too!

Mix tapes were the all day, make every song perfect and every song should blend into the next obsession of my childhood. I made a mix for my wedding in lieu of hiring a d-jay and hooked the computer up to the stereo. I just love them! Happy stitching!

Roxanne said...

Ok mom, I love you <3 Erin, I love that you made a tape for your wedding.

Okay so your post totally speaks to me. Not only do I remember having mixed tapes! I remember recording the same song several times on one tape so I wouldn't have to rewind. Oh the good old days. Also She & Him is so amazing. I have volume one I can't wait to get volume 2!

oh man, mixed tapes were the BOMB! I loved waiting for the perfect song to come on the radio and then RUSHING to hit record! Ah... awkward pre-teen years.
