A few weeks ago Meggy at Chasing Davies hosted a friendship bracelet swap and I signed up as fast as I could. I
probably definitely have enough jewelry, but really...is there ever enough when it comes to an arm party?
I got paired with the adorable Laura (LuLu) of A Candid Life and while I have perfected the jewelry I make for GS Lillian, I am not very good with many other crafts, especially when it comes to tying tiny knots, in a specific order, for more than 5 minutes. I just don't have the patience or stamina for it. I have DIY and tutorials bookmarked all over my computer, but I had yet to make anything. So, that's why I was so excited to do the exchange. The bracelet I sent Laura was sort of a mash up of GS Lillian and friendship bracelet. The bracelets I received made me squeal with delight! Not 3 days earlier I had emailed my friend with a link to the tutorial for these bracelets with a message that said, "I'm totally doing this". Now I don't have to!!!
I thought about emailing Laura to ask what colors she liked, then I thought it might kind of ruin the fun of it, but the funniest thing is that we both used the same color palette!! A friendship bracelet match made in Heaven!
Thanks again Laura, I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE my new bracelets!
PPS. I have the BEST sister in the world. I haven't taken my bracelets off since I got them, but we went to Target and when I got home I noticed my blue bracelet was missing and I kind of wanted to cry because I really do love both of them. My sister drove back to Target and FOUND MY BRACELET!!!!
