It’s Time for an Arm Party!

Just over a month ago, I posted about the Summer Time Arm Party being hosted by Leonora of Yellow Heart Art and Ilene of Much Love, Illy.

My partner in this exchange is Angela Barnes of AmarieBeauty, and she was very quick with sending my package. She was so quick that I think it was in the mail before I’d even started her bracelet.

I planned to make her a couple bracelets, but I panicked a bit about time, so I only sent her one. And to be honest, I didn’t want to see what she’d sent me before I mailed her package.

{because I would have peeked…}

I’ve been having all sorts of fun with my own little arm party the past couple weeks courtesy of Angela, and it’s been hard not to be able to share my new, fun bracelets.

But I don’t have to wait any longer!

Here is what Angela sent me…

These bracelets are so fun! I love the braided rag bracelet made from tee-shirt scraps. It’s different than anything else I have. The colors are great too. I wearing a lot of that coral/pink color and the blue is perfect with jeans.

I’m also really digging the vintage button bracelet. It makes great clinking noises on my wrist and I’m constantly playing with moving the buttons around. It’s super light-weight and the colors are exactly what I need. Orange one of my favorite splashes of color right now.

Here they are in action…

Now that you’ve seen mine, be sure to hop on over to Angela’s blog and check out what I sent her. I design jewelry, so I had a lot of fun making her bracelet with no parameters other than a bit of color direction. Here’s a little sneak peek…

And when you’re done there, go over to Much Love, Illy and Yellow Heart Art to check out the other participants.

Summer Arm Party!

I have the worst time passing up jewelry exchanges!  It’s a problem.  And since I can’t seem to dedicate myself to making jewelry unless I have some sort of deadline, then it’s even more of a temptation to jump into any exchange that sounds like fun.

When I saw a couple of my friends on twitter chatting about an arm party, I knew I had to investigate.

(which makes me wonder if this happens at other times during the year – must investigate)

And after considering it for a bit, I decided to sign up – even though my website/blog are in a terrible state of neglect.  Nothing like a little bit more motivation. ;)

I’m looking forward to finding out if I’m in!
