Wednesday night things got pretty crazy around here… I hosted a friendship bracelet making party and boy-oh-boy, it was wild! I’ve been seeing these bracelets pop up again, and began feeling nostalgic for the craft so I thought it would be fun to make bracelets and swap them at the end of the night.
Friendship bracelets were my 2nd attempt at being a 5th grade entrepreneur, my first being a witty detective, a la my idol Nancy Drew. That didn’t go over so well as I got in trouble for going through a girls desk, but I had every reason as she was a suspect in The Case of the Missing Markers! However, the second business went under pretty quickly too, probably because I set my sights too low, only selling them for 25 cents.
We had lots of yummy snacks like homemade whoopie pies from Sam, and cheesy goodness brought to us by Cheez-Its, Doritos, and Goldfish. I made pumpkin cookies from Joy the Baker- I didn’t have the butterscotch chips so I substituted white chocolate. We sipped on Moscow Mules and sparkling wine to help the inspiration flow.
To get ready for the party I put out a bunch of embroidery floss, safety pins, measuring tapes, and scissors, and printed out some patterns.
It was a fun crafty night with friends and totally worth getting made fun of by boys for the idea, because I have an awesome bracelet now!
P.S… I kinda want to keep making more if anyone wants to swap!!This entry was posted in day to day and tagged cocktails, crafting, DIY, friendship bracelets, girl's night. ← la lista: some of my favorite podcasts… Recipe Box Favorites →
