Being at retreat earlier this month totally got me into a bracelet making mode and now I just can’t stop! At women’s retreat I brought a big bag of embroidery floss with me and a bunch of us had fun tying new bracelets, yay!
Now, every night before bed I find myself working a little on one, it’s so relaxing. And with all the crazy weather we’ve been having, I keep telling myself it’ll be a fun hobby to have on deck for when the power goes out again.
Speaking of retreat, I am so aware that I’ve been a slacker in writing some more post-retreat blog posts. I’m working on it – life these days is busy! We’ve had terrible weather, work has been busy, I haven’t been feeling great, and we’re moving soon – lots and lots of excuses, I know, but legit all the same.
So back to bracelet talk –
A few weeks ago I finally took off my usual friendship bracelets and went bare. It had been a good long while since I’d made any new ones and the ones I’ve been rocking were old and well on their way to yucky.
Within like ten days, I’ve totally made myself a whole new arm of stringed fun! Check it out:
Isn’t that thick oranges and yellows number on the end awesome? It took forevs but I’m so glad I went for it. It’s 12 strings across, and since it’s the kind that goes string by string tying the knots, it was time-consuming! I love it though, it’s super rad (despite that obvious one mess up in the middle, grr).
The new threads look so great with my other newest piece of arm candy, the L.O.V.E. metal bracelet everyone at retreat was gifted:
