Remember making friendship bracelets? Why did we stop doing that?
Oh. I remember why. It takes a hundred years and hurts your back.
HOWEVER - I am a slave to fashion, so I went forth. Because it's cute, dammit.
I could barely remember how to do it, so I found this GREAT tutorial at Honestly WTF, which re-taught me everything. :)
Then, I sat down with my Grandmolly (the gp's were visiting, and the men decided to take a nap), and we chatted while I wove.
First bracelet took about 2 hrs. omg.
Today, I realized that I had bought 5 other things of thread. holy moses, I couldn't just waste it. So, I put on "The Princess and the Frog" - what? It's awesome - and it took slightly longer than the movie to finish my second bracelet (probably took so long because I was riveted by the story. and oprah).
The results? Here ya go:
I paired them with some S&D bracelets... And I'm loving it!
I also painted my nails today. You can't see very well in the photos because my camera is crappy. BUT, I used Revlon Black Lingerie (2 coats) followed by Revlon TopSpeed in Royal (1 coat). It turned out to look really thick, matte, and lovely. I highly recommend this combo.
In addition, I wore this outfit, using my new scarf as a belt. Cute for a lounge-day at the casa. :)
Seriously, it's difficult to look cute when you are using the 2-second timer in your kitchen! haha :)
Have a gorgeous weekend, stay safe, and enjoy yourselves! I'll be back Monday!
