Charms

Hello Everyone and Happy St George's Day. We English don't seem to do anything to celebrate this day at all and I must confess if I hadn't seen it as my Google header today I wouldn't have even known it was our Saint's Day. No shamrocks, no daffodils and leeks for us-never mind we maybe will think of something by next year:(

I joined in a charms swap at Artful Times this was organised by Von at Artful Times who did all the work by receiving, sorting and sending the charms for us. Thank you Von.



These are the ones that I received and I love all of them and the little labels that Von added are beautiful so I will keep those on the charms as well.

The idea of putting them onto a card by Cindy was exactly what I needed as I have been making charms/key rings and brooches for a friend with cancer to sell for the MaciIllan Appeal. I didn't know how to present them and the card idea worked just right I think


This lot are all ready packed up to post so I will start on some more and maybe make some animal ones for a change. With all the sport on television at the moment I need something to do whilst I watch it-I just love watching sport! I did go for a walk yesterday that was over 10 miles so I don't just sit on my btm all day every day lol.

Thanks for dropping by

Love Chrissie xx

You have been a very busy bee. They are so cute. You've made me tired just reading that you walked over 10 miles - well done.

gosh you've been busy Chrissie - what gorgeous charms you got back in your swap and the idea for mounting your pieces is great as it will stop them getting tangled in the post - really hope they sell well xx
