friendship finds.

My husband's mom recently brought us some friendship bracelets- and the kids (and I) are totally hooked.  Apple loves bracelets of any kind (she's going to help me share her handmade upcycled bracelet DIY here on the blog soon), so these little floss bracelets were no exceptions.
