arm party swap {an excuse to make friendship bracelets}

A few weeks ago Lenora and ilene announced a arm party swap. what is an arm party swap?? basically an excuse to make fun friendship bracelets and send them to someone. pretty fun right?? 


I was excited to make a few bracelets I had seen on the interwebs for some time. I went to Jo'Anns and loaded up on embroidery thread, chain and plastic craft lace. Man oh man was I obsessed with plastic craft lace in elementary school! I made a crap ton of key chains back then.

My swap partner Janelle {we have the same name [different spelling], fun right??} made it very clear she LOVES blue so that was the theme I went with. I was thrilled with out these turned out and have been making them none stop ever since. I am pretty sure I have a problem with accessories!



I have to admit I did not get a chance to do any what i wore photos with my arm party loot. Since our mailbox is at the post office which is so dang far away I didn't check the mail until the end of the week last week and then we headed to NOLA. I don't know what I was thinking but I should have snapped a few pics of me wearing them there, but alas I did not.



Have you had the urge to be a 9 year old again and bust out some friendship bracelets? I highly suggest you do it, it really was fun and a great way to spend a Sunday afternoon. Plus if you get obsessed like I did I am sure one of your besties would scream upon opening a pretty friendship bracelet in the mail.

What a fun idea! I loved making friendship bracelets in junior high, although I'm pretty sure mine never turned out as cute as yours! :)
