Sarah Helen Kendrick


Sara Helen grew up going to summer camp from the time she was 8 years old and hasn’t quit yet! Her childhood dream of working at camp when she grew up came true and she thanks God every single day for it. To her, camp is a place where you can be your authentic – ridiculous – self without the stresses and hang-ups of the outside world. It’s a safe place to dive deep, decompress, and find what moves you, whether it be art, guitar, hiking, horseback or even journaling. Spending time with other women :: sharing life :: is what fills her love tank. Sara met her husband of 16 years while teaching horseback at camp in the summer between her sophomore and junior years of high school and hasn’t looked back. Think – handsome cowboy singing around a campfire… Magic. Who ever said summer romances don’t last? The best compliment she has ever received was to be called a “human sparkler,” and that fits her so well. Sara is a tender encourager, a giver, and a comedian. She’ll fill you up, share your joys (and pains while trying to show you the bright side), and then have you rolling on the floor. When she’s not at work or spending time with her rancher husband and three spunky kids, Sara creates and sells one-of-a-kind wrap-bracelets, helps with the church youth-group, sits on the back porch listening to some good country music, enjoys a good blog post, and always – always… coffee.

Class Description

Back by popular demand!  Have you ever found yourself admiring those gorgeous beaded wrap bracelets at Nordstrom but couldn’t imagine forking over the $200+ to have one of your own? I mean… they’re just BEADS!! One of my favorite camp activities as a kid was always arts & crafts, where we were free to use our imaginations when creating bright and happy pieces to send home to Mom or to give to that favorite counselor. Usually made from big plastic beads and neon lanyard string, those bracelets were worn with pride. (Thanks, Mom!) If you’re like me, you still enjoy the idea of using your own two hands to create something special for a friend. While plastic beads and lanyard string would definitely get the job done, why don’t we step it up a notch and learn to make something a little more grown up? Let’s roll up our sleeves, bust out the beads, and get to creating our very own one-of-a-kind wrap bracelet! It’s pretty simple once you get the hang of it and can cost less than $20 to make. Happy wrapping!
