friendship bracelet obsession

 First of all, do you know how hard it is to take a photo of your wrist with a 50mm lens?
It's really, really hard!
Manual focus helps, but I still looked very funny contorting myself into weird shapes
to get my wrist far enough away from my camera.

The kids and I are slightly obsessed with friendship bracelets lately.
Embroidery floss has been flying around here like feathers from a beaten pillow.

The little guy asked for one in cotton twine, like mine.
I told him we were bracelet buddies.
“That's what they'll call us!”

Sweetpea now has four.
She wanted to have the same number as me.
She made one, her Aunt Britt Britt made one, I made two.

Such a blast from the past. 
I made hundreds of these when I was a kid.

Did you?

Je ne me souviens pas en avoir fait, je ne suis pas bijoux, même en fil ou tissu, mais nos filles viennent de se prendre de passion pour ces bracelets grâce à leur cousine !
(en autofocus, j'arrive à prendre ces photos avec le 50mm, je l'ai fait pour les mûres l'autre jour : http://sophiebonheur.canalblog.com/archives/2011/07/19/21632008.html)

I loved making friendship bracelets! I remember raiding my mom's stash of thread for her cross stitching to make them.

Could those friendship bracelets BE any cooler?

I literally laughed out loud when I read "that's what they'll call us!" Hahahahahaha! Make Happy indeed: success.
