2013 Friendship Bracelet Making Party

Lucy’s bracelet got tangled and knotted, so I gave her my secret to solving a lot of my own tiny life mishaps: give it to Jessee. “He’s good at fixing things”, I told her. And he did. Sir, you are going to make one hell of a father some day.

Leeloo is all “OMG I just LOVE YOU” in this photo, and her face is amazing. Whenever kids come over she is enthralled.

My friend Dave smokes a pipe and looks like a sea captain.

The party I threw was my second annual (having skipped 2012) summer kick off party: The Friendship Bracelet Making Party. All you need is a mega pack of embroidery thread, a few pairs of scissors, and a roll of masking tape. Add beer, friends, snacks and lemonade, etc. as you’d like. I know how to make a few different kinds of bracelets so I offered guidance and made some of my own, too. It was so fun to have everyone piled in my back yard and being creative.

    At the last friendship bracelet party I was the detangler (there’s even a picture). And now, the dude I’m married to is.
    I feel this gives a very good forecast.
    Or at least, I hope.

    xoxo. Lily.

    I just made a friendship bracelet last week and it was so fun, not to get the momentum up to make myself a matching one to my husbands!

    I wish I still lived in New York, because I would desperately try to become friends with you and invade your twee hipster lifestyle. Instead, is it ok if I copy you and have a friendship bracelet making party in the Twin Cities?
