Arm Party link up...
I recently had the honor to participate in the first ever Arm Party friendship bracelet exchange.
The fun event was hosted by Ilene and Leanora.
They matched up each participating blogger with another blogger to exchange bracelets with.
I was matched up with Stephanie. She blogs at Sand and Starfish if you would like to check out her blog! She has a wonderful beach-y theme and has sweet Mommy blog posts as well as updates on her handcrafted business.
I sent off a bit of lovely crafted goodies to her and she sent two of her new wrist cuffs to me. (She hopes to sell them in her shop sometime.)
Want to see?
I must admit, that I was a bit unsure about these cuffs when they came in the mail. I have small hands and wrists, so cuffs, bangles, or any bulky bracelets aren't something I like to wear. But, I was pleasantly surprised that one of the cuffs went splendidly with the dress my Momma wore in the 80s that is now mine. The color and floral theme was a nice blend.
The cuffs are each an eclectic mix of fabrics, which I enjoy because it reminds me of how God can take an eclectic mix of people and bring them together into something beautiful.
I'm glad that I was able to participate and I hope that Stephanie enjoys the bracelets I made for her.
Now I'm off to browse the link-up party and see what fun other bloggers had with this swap!
P.S. As I was playing with style ideas for the cuffs I had the idea that taking three of Stephanie's cuffs and snapping them together would make a very fun headband! If I had three I totally would have tried it out. It would be multifunctional as cuffs and a headband that way.
