I’m going to this local blogger meetup thing tonight hosted by The Busy Budgeting Mama. I guess it’s kinda like speed dating for bloggers. I’m not really sure what to expect, but I think it will be nice to chat with some women who “get” this blogging thing that I do. They are all local, which means if I any of us do hit it off, maybe we could become bloggy BFFs or something. Like I said… Speed Dating for Mommy Bloggers.
It will be a small group, less than 30 bloggers, in attendance, and Natalie had the suggestion that we bring “a little something” with our business cards to make the exchange more exciting. *Cue panic as I hate being creative under pressure!!!* Fortunately, my DIY Jewelry Pinterest board came to the rescue, because LBG Studio’s Fabric Bracelet tutorial was just the sort of project that I could churn out quickly and cheaply.
You know how I hate to mass produce anything? Well…. I LOVED making these. I didn’t a bit bored until I was working on the last 5 (and I made 29 of them). That says a lot. They come together easily, but the best part was digging through my boxes of scraps.
Each piece reminded me of a project I had made and the reasons I made it. Basically, I was fondling a box full of happiness and victory. If I wanted to get all smarmy and sentimental, I could say each of these bracelets represents part of my sewing journey. I know. Cheesy. Whatever. I enjoyed working with them and I will enjoy giving them away.
oh, and I’m keeping some for myself. Because how could I not?
I’m a little worried that I have forgotten how to hold an adult conversation and will come across as a mumbling idiot. Hopefully, these bracelets will make up for my lack o’ social skills.
Wish me luck!
