Safety is Sexy from Becca's Crazy Projects

 
When I decided to start skating I knew I had to buy safety gear. I'm not a young person, I've broken many bones over my lifetime, and don't fancy doing it again. I bought this helmet because it was easily accessible during the pandemic (Amazon). But, geez, is it boring. 
I have a handful of stickers from different designers and hobbies. It was time to put them to use. 
This is the most important one. I cannot tell you how much fun it IS NOT to hit your noggin' on the pavement. Safety is important and sexy ...

Get Rolling from Becca's Crazy Projects


I want to share the many things I've been doing. However, it seems I haven't been doing many things. I did get some roller skating in last week. I bought these great wheels from Roller Skate Nation. Let me tell you, they are fast!
Don't forget your safety gear!

Luminous Wheels from Becca's Crazy Projects

This week this smashed box showed up on my doorstep. 
Inside, and unharmed, were these wheels, new bearings, and laces for my skates. Because skating is all about the accessories. I bought these from Roller Skate Nation. I don't blame them for the smashed box. I'm sure the box didn't look like that when it left them. 
Here are my skates before the change. I was using the dirty Moxi wheels from my Beach Bunnies on my Moonlight Rollers. 
Here is the after. That's right, I decided to get Luminous wheels. Because I wanted light up ...

Skating Sugar Skulls from Becca's Crazy Projects

Last week my new skates showed up, these are Sapphire from Moonlight Rollers. I hadn't seen a comparable blue in other skates and these spoke to me. I'm super happy I decided to give them a try. These are at a higher price-point than my Moxi Beach Bunnies but less than a pair of Moxi Lollies. Unlike my Beach Bunnies these didn't come with toe caps. That got my crafty mind churning.
I used the Moxi toe cap to create a template and cut out some marine vinyl I had on hand. There are loads of tutorials ...

Nothing New from Becca's Crazy Projects


I wish I had something exciting to share. I do not. Every day the weather is above 45F degrees and sunny I go outside and roll around for at least 30 minutes. Yesterday it was over 50 degrees. The secret to getting up and moving is getting up and moving. Yesterday my socks (yes, I made them) matched my skates. Well, these socks match many things, I'm sure. 

The weekend is nearly here. I'm sure I'll accomplish something productive over the long weekend.

Practice, practice, practice from Becca's Crazy Projects

When there is sunshine, and the temperature isn't too cold, or the wind isn't blowing, I try to go outside and practice on my skates. Afternoon sunshine is perfect for this. I still love the skate leash I made. 
I'm not great skater by any means. I'm still falling over (occasionally) and learning more every time I practice. Little steps.

Skate Leash from Becca's Crazy Projects

I needed some nylon web to make a leash for my skates. I did a little poking around and didn't find a great tutorial but I did find enough to figure out what I needed. 
Step one is to bring your skates to the project so you can make sure you know how long the webbing needs to be cut.
This is a really simple sew. You just need a loop on each end that will fit over the webbing. 
I couldn't leave them plain so I grabbed this fun print from my collection and stitched it down ...

Skating! from Becca's Crazy Projects

I put the toe guards on my skates, laced them up, and went outside. 
I did fall. I did not break anything. I'm still excited about skating. I'm sad I didn't make this jump earlier in the year. As the weather is changing I am unlikely to want to go out into the cold and skate. I may have start looking for a roller rink.

More than a Little Crazy from Becca's Crazy Projects

I saw a couple videos about the newest skates from Moxi, the Rainbow Riders. Those were sold out in most sizes the first day and by the time I got making the decision everything in my size was gone.
 

I searched high and low until I found a seller that had Moxi roller skates in stock, in my size.
It was no easy feat. When I looked the next day they had nothing in my size. 
My knee pads are here, my helmet is not. I may need some nicer weather, too. It rained all day. 

I'm more excited ...
