May Day Charm Swap to join me?

After reading Rochelle's comment ("LOVE THIS IDEA!! Too bad nothing like that near hoo!") on my most recent Charm Swap experience, I decided to host one on-line! Sound fun? I know!

Announcing a May Day Charm Swap!

Create 12 charms to swap.
  • No larger than 1-1/2 inches
  • Not too heavy
  • Waterproof
  • Can be metal, wood, fabric, glass, you name it.
  • A May Day theme is encouraged but optional for your charm...because everything goes with flowers!
Mail to me so I receive by April 22. Please include $2 for shipping and handling.

I will divy them up and get back to you by May Day (May 1) along with some of my personal treasures as a thank you for participating!

To keep my sanity intact (whatever!) I am going to limit this first swap to 12 'charming' people. Leave me a comment and your contact information on this post if you are interested and I will get back to you with all the details.

It doesn't matter if you are new to charm making or a seasoned professional, just give it a try! And don't is supposed to be fun. Fun to make and super-fun to receive!

Looking forward to hearing from you!
