  1. I love making homemade bracelets!! I’m totally not into this whole loom band trend but beaded bracelets and thread braid bracelets I think are a very personal little touch to a gift. Cool post!

    I particularly love Simba’s appearance! πŸ˜›

    • Thank you!

      It wouldn’t be the same without Simba πŸ˜‰

      Totally agree though, loom bands aren’t really my thing either. I make friendship style tribal bracelets in my spare time too. I will probably have a post soon πŸ™‚
