friendship bracelets


After I posted the Ariel Gordon's silk braided bracelets last week, two of my closest friends (Jenny & Emily) and I started a conversation on facebook. We all three LOVED the bracelets, and each had our own three-color combos picked out. Jenny mentioned we should do them as friendship bracelets, even if that was dorky. If only we had the money to each purchase a $108 bracelet ...

Then, we decided it wasn't dorky and even Ariel Gordon's website called the bracelets "friendship bracelets" {guess it wasn't our original idea afterall}...

Then, I remembered! We did have money for the bracelets. We used to have monthly  business and creativity meetings as part of a business-minded, idea-nurturing, productive group comprised of the three of us that we called Master Mind Women's Club (MMWC). We are the three Master Minds, of course. It may sound a little middle school, but during these meetings we hashed out all sorts of ideas, started and finished projects, and even developed business ideas. Yes, MOCHIE-ROOhello there, design, and my *remember the days* were all nurtured in MMWC meeting. Many a meetings were spent business planning for Jenny's Pretty-Bras for Nursing Moms and our family 5Ks  raising money for Best for Babes were born of the meetings too. Emily has a blog and cookbook in the works as a result, as well. So, these meeting were no child's play {except for Emily and Jenny's children playing in the background while we would meet, of course} and were highly productive. Anyways, back to what I remembered - I remembered our dues! We collected dues at each meeting {saving up for a vacation for the three of us}. We had our MMWC dues sitting in my bank account and we decided THAT is how we would purchase our friendship bracelets.

So, $324 plus shipping later, our bracelets in our selected color palettes (above) are on their way to us! The time was just perfect for us to get these friendship bracelets, as Emily had just moved to Denver about a month ago, I am leaving for Miami in a week, and Jenny will still be in Bayfield/Durango, Colorado. With all of us spread out among three cities, these silk braided bracelets will be a reminder of our special friendship and love for each other ... chloe :: emily :: jenny.

We were in Walmart the other night and
I bought a string kit with a bunch of different colors – Just out of pure nostalgia for these bracelets!
Now I have a grownup way to make them.friendship bracelet
