A bracelet for 50 cents?!?

I had lunch with a friend today...and as I waited for her to arrive I was eyeing up the gumball machines. I haven't bought something from a gum ball machine since I was a child. On the way out..I decided I 'had' to have the item. 

I put in my quarters and turned the dial..instantly transported back in time.
The anticipation...would I get the color I wanted?
What if the item got stuck and nothing came out?
Would I be super lucky and somehow two items would come out?
The joy in opening up that little metal door and retrieving my 'prize'. 

All this nostalgia was worth the 50 cents I put in....and today's prize? This wicked cool Zipper Bracelet with heart shaped zipper pull. Yup, I'm 5 years old all over again. 

When was the last time you bought something from a gumball machine?

Welcome to Calico Cali Designs! I’m Kat, digitizer and sewing enthusiast. I learned how to digitize in 2010 from master digitizer Walter Floriani…it was an amazing experience. Soon instead of spending my time sewing, quilting and stitching out other people’s embroidery designs, I was sewing, quilting and stitching out my own embroidery designs. I created this blog, not only as a place to share my embroidery designs, but also as a place to share all the things I make, sew, paint, embroider, and create. You’ll see posts about my life, my studio, patterns I’ve sewn and products I’ve tested. I hope you enjoy reading these posts as much as I’ve enjoyed creating them. Follow me on twitter . Hugs!! – Kat
