    Some of these took me down Memory Lane! Playing outside ALL day, jumping double dutch, jelly shoes, the corner store and penny candy, cheer battles on the playground, and pretending to ignore the boys on the basketball court! And I was pleasantly surprised to find out these styles have names (even tho #12 will always be criss-cross applesauce to me!) And i think i found a new fav in #3!!! Thanks for sharing!!

    Oh my word!! These are FABULOUS!!! I’m here for many of these, but I’m pretty sure #7 will be the first I try, and the one that will remain in heaviest rotation.
