**** August Charm Swap CLOSED ****


Please join me in August Charm Swap. This is the third month that I will be hosting this and it is a lot of fun and addicting! I absolutely love charms that hang off tags, mini’s, pages etc. and can’t seem to get enough of them. There are so many kinds available that it is impossible to collect them all.
Please comment on my Youtube or my Blog and include your email address so that it is easier to send you updates.
This swap will be open to everyone to join. (US, Canada and International)
This will be a 7+1 swap, you will get one back.
• Each Charm should include a swivel clasp, garment pin or something to attach it to a tag or mini.
• A charm, either handmade or store bought (attached to the garment pin or swivel clasp)
• A bead or button.
• Please include your name and youtube/blog name.

Please be fair to everyone participating. If you’re unable to continue the swap, please notify me asap. I would like for everyone who has signed up to be able to receive as many as they have sent back.
Include a SASE with at last the same amount of postage as it took to mail me. Also include 2 extra stamps if needed. I will send them back if not needed. PLEASE NO METERED strips.
I will have 4 groups of 8 and will sign people up in the order of comments received.
Thank you for participating. If you don’t have my address, please email me once you are ready to mail out and I will send to you. My email address is

These need to be in my hands no later than September 7th, I would like to mail out on September 15. I need extra time this month, thanks.

Here is the card that I created to send to Jade for the fundraiser for Claudia. (66msclaudia) Please visit Jade's Youtube at JadedStudios for her address and information. Thank you Jade for putting this together.

I used one of my favorite stamps with a wine theme, imagine that :-) I used Glimmer Mist, Starburst Stain, and Magical Micas to color in the image. I like painting with the mists and stains, the colors are so vibrant and glimmery.

Le Romantique 4x4 Mini Swap Completed Album

I love participating in Bona's 4x4 Mini swap, when we receive all the pages back we have a completed Album. I bound it with craft cord and tied strips of black lace, I love how it turned out. Everyone in my group did such a wonderful job!
