friendship bracelets

i’ve been looking at these pictures every day for a full week. it’s an understatement to say that i used to L-O-V-E making friendship bracelets. while everyone else was playing tetherball and trying to make their friends throw-up on the merry-go-round at the community center, i was the girl camped out next to the boondoogle station, attempting to make myself the hottest collection of friendship bracelets and keychains this side of the Finger Lakes.

i think these really need to come back. screw silly bands. if you’re anything like me, you can’t resist a pile of embroidery floss and an hour of repetitive motion. it’s akin to knitting: over and over and over again. instead of taking my knitting needles to Maine this year, i think i’ll take a pile of floss and have a crafty adventure. if you’re my friend, expect some sort of bracelet by mid-August that will signify our undying devotion to each other.
