not - so wordless wednesday


because I have to say I LOVE the freak'n 80's...
there...I said it. 

How can you not love the 80's?  Even if you grew up in the 90's...the 80's still rock because who doesn't love fishnet fingerless gloves, madonna and those damn Wayfarer sunglasses.

Oh and can anyone guess which movie I was watching??

weekend project :

friendship bracelets

the How To:
Pick up to 5 threads (the more colors you choose the wider your bracelet will be)
Align the string, fold in half and tie  knot 1/2 inch from fold forming a loop.

Separate strings in order of how you want the pattern (color) to form.  
Hold string #1 with your left hand and string #2 with your right hand, loop string #1 in front making a number "4". While holding string #1 and #2 form a right handed double knot.  After double knot is complete move string #2 to the string #1 position, while holding string #1 in hand.  Take string #1 and make the same double knot around string #3.  After double knot is complete move string #3 to the #2 position...


Continue to tie double knots on strings #4 thru... with string #1 until you finish the row.  When you have completed tying the double knot on the last string, place string #1 in the last position.  Now you have finished a row.  Start over with the new string #1 and continue making rows.
When you think your bracelet is long enough to fit around your wrist, cut the excess string and tie in a knot.






Once you've finished your bracelet, give it to someone you love!
