arm party!

I love any excuse for mail.
Well, any excuse for good mail. Bills don't count.

This is why I jumped at the chance to do an "arm party" swap-- make bracelets, send bracelets-- what could be better?

Getting paired with Julie couldn't be better.

If someone told me two years ago that I would become good friends with people I met online, I would scoff. It sounds weird.

But Julie of Julie Ann Art has become a dear friend and sounding board for all things small biz/Etsy related and I was so excited to send her two bracelets I made.

And I was so excited to see what she sent me-- two really cute additions to my wrist. I'm super impressed by the chevron-patterned one. Not sure how she made that.

They were the perfect accessories at the beach:

love them.
