Bracelet How-Tos and a Good Cause!

Remember hopscotch? And Side walk chalk? And Lemonade Stands? And Friendship bracelets?

Ahhh...friendship bracelets. Total nerd alert right here: I would carry around all my embroidery floss (color coordinated of course) inside an organized tupperware container. (And yes, it totally had my name written acrossed it in paint pen where you add little "accent dots" to the tips of all the letters, very 90s)

Wanna kick it old school and make friendship bracelets for an uh-may-zing cause?
(you know you do!)

Introducing Project 12!

Here is a brief look into project 12:
"For Project 12, we are partnering with Orphan Outreach and sending them with a little love to take to Russia. This time we will be making bracelets for them to pass out to kids. Bracelets are a huge hit with kids of all ages — hemp bracelets or beaded bracelets. They are going on a trip in August and have asked us to collect bracelets for them."

 Remember how cool you felt in your friendship bracelets back in the hay day? Just think about how special these kids are going to feel knowing that someone out there made something *just for them*.

Deadline for Project 12 to receive your bracelets is June 15th. I already have made 10 myself and plan on shipping them out asap.

Here is where to send your bracelet swag to:
Carin Vogelzang
