2016 Art Charm Swap Reveal
Over the last several years I have hosted several charm swaps. Basically how it works is each participant makes 10 + 1 charms and then ships them to me. I lay all the charms out on my dining room table (it's VERY long!) and sort all the charms so each person gets 10 new charms from different artists in return. Then I package and ship the charms to each participant. The +1 charm gets auctioned off to benefit Beads of Courage. Unfortunately a small issue came up so we aren't starting the auction portion of this event today like originally planned, but it will be coming very soon. We will all share extensively when the auction is up and running so you don't miss it.
Each year a theme is selected, and this year the theme was "fairy tales." I love Alice in Wonderland. To be honest, I've never actually READ Alice, but have seen the Disney animated version and the Johnny Depp version.
One of my absolute favorite quotes is : "You're not the same as you were before," he said. You were much more... muchier... you've lost your muchness."
I just love the word muchness and what that can mean.
Including that word was my number one priority. And thinking of the queen of hearts, I sort of overdid it on the hearts...
They're like candy...
Then I stamped the word muchness and added another heart because it needed MORE HEARTS. Then I wire wrapped and attached everything together with jumprings.
When the auction happens, this is the specific charm that will be offered up (even though I wanted it for myself!):
There are several participants and they want to show you what they made and in some cases, what they received. Please visit the following blogs and let them know what you think of their creations and how they interpreted the theme of fairy tales:
