and suddenly, I'm 10 years old again
Hey! You know what's cool again??
Okay, so I don't know if they're cool with EVERYBODY, but they're cool with me! I saw a post the other day on The Purl Bee, that featured old school macraméd friendship bracelets and I decided I had to make some immediately.
I can so clearly remember taking home the free, peel off instruction sheets on how to make the various bracelets from the Piece Goods Shop at the mall in about the 4th grade. I worked for hours on them, and would use my allowance to go back and buy more of the colorful floss to make more and more. I never really thought of it as doing a craft back then, but now I think about how these were part of my start in loving to make things for myself and other people.
Plus, they're super fun. And I make way good ones. AND, if you're my friend, I just might make you one!
