The deadline for the friendship bracelet swap is fast approaching and I am so excited about the latest batch that I've gotten in. This one is from Allyson of the Sweatshop of Love and I am in love with her interpretation—interlocking bracelets made with yarn...so darn cool. (Which makes me wonder how I decide which one I get to swap with? It seems unfair to pick my favorite for myself...any thoughts?)
The next one, which again is so impressive as creating a design within a bracelet is something that I never learned how to do. This one is from Mala and I am also really digging her color combo—just in time for the 4th!
Apparently you swappers have been very modest about your bracelet making skills—check this one out from Kimberly which makes use of a bead as a hook, in addition to having a cool pattern.
You know, in addition to reminding me how much I love friendship bracelets and making new friends, hosting this swap has also given me the joy of getting a lot of really great mail. I am going to try to make a concerted effort to send more mail so that I can pass that on a little bit. And on that note, happy Friday and enjoy the weekend!
P.S. If you have a bracelet that you just haven't mailed yet, but you want to try to squeeze in at the last minute, let me know and I'll be sure to include you in the swap next week.
