Best Friend necklaces caused a lot of problems for me in middle school. Lauren Pallotta had one with Katie Cuff and I was so jealous, I could barely see straight. Katie and I got a "Friends Forever" necklace but it wasn't the same. I went in search for Best Friend necklaces, wondering if they were still wreaking havoc on middle schools and causing girl drama around the nation. Tiffany & Co. should add some sterling silver ones to their collection, the $11.99 pewter one I just ordered as a gift for Ashley's second annual thirtieth birthday will likely turn green and this idea has a lot of potential to come back into style.
June 8th was Best Friends Day (some made up holiday that I am happy to blog about). I'm so sorry I missed it. Our designer Jeanne Streiff created three unique gifts to celebrate this superfluous yet fabulous holiday. She created a treat bag by stamping with PSA Rosettas and Smirk Caffeine Confidents.
She also created colorful gift wrap. She stamped from PSA Rosettas in different color inks! What a pretty package.
She created a candle, fun to give as a gift. She's also used Smirk Caffeine Confidents and PSA Rosettas. I love the layering here!
