Do you remember spending hours creating friendship bracelets for your friends back in grade school? I sure do. I think I used to try and peddle my work off on unsuspecting grown up for a quarter a piece too. It was my first experience with being creative and my first taste of crafting for profit. I never really ever did stop creating after those days. It all started with these bracelets and I am super excited to announce that they are starting to make a comeback.
The other day a package arrived on my doorstep (one of my favorite things about blogging) and inside I found the cutest friendship bracelet maker I’ve ever seen. WAY much better than the string and safety pin I used to use. 🙂 Come on, who else remembers pinning your bracelets to your pant legs to work on them? Either way, my daughter and I were thrilled. She was thrilled to have a new craft project (cuz she gets it from her mama) and I was thrilled to be able to teach her something that was such a big part of my childhood.
This little guitar shaped craft kit was excellent and had everything we needed to get started making bracelets together. It even has a drawer to hold the cord while your not using it.
After a little bit of trial and error, with mom thinking she could still do this with her eyes closed, we finally were able to create several friendship bracelets to share with eachother, little brother and dad. My daughter was so proud of her creations that I may have started a lifetime love of crafting in her. That wouldn’t be too bad though. 🙂 I turned out ok. . well, maybe.
