So yesterday in the midst of all of my mad designing and knotting, I suddenly realized that I am 7 again. At around that age I bought a Klutz book that had instructions for bunches different types of friendship bracelets. I got a bit stuck making stripes. I was 7 after all, and had only just figured out how to braid. But once I FINALLY figured out the chevron pattern, I was a bracelet making machine.
At the same time in my second grade class, my awesome teacher set up a whole little main street economy. We worked in pairs at assigned stores. I specifically remember the bakery (which was obviously the best), but I sold magazines, which was pretty definitely the most boring station. So...I'm sure you already know where this is headed...my friend Valerie and I opened a jewelry business, where we sold top quality friendship bracelets. I don't remember how popular our shop was, but I do know that it was WAY better than magazines.
I've come full circle. Here I am at, 24 pursuing my dream at 7. How could I have forgotten my macrame dreams! So glad I found them again.
