ArtBLISS Charm Swap!

I mentioned in my previous post that on the Saturday of ArtBLISS, 14 of us got together to do a charm swap! The theme was simply Art Bliss. Your interpretation of art and bliss, basically! Below you can see photos of all the charms. Anne Savage organized the swap and, in addition to making a charm, she also gave us a charm bracelet with an ArtBLISS charm on it, to put all our charms! She is so generous! Her husband was even there taking classes - how great is that?1st row - Laura Twiford, Jen Velasquez, Julie Jones
2nd row - Beth, Leslie Brier, Lori Burek
3rd row - Sandy Volpe, Anne Savage, Susan Kennedy
4th row- Melissa Meman, Sally Russick, Dawn Gallop
5th row - Jenny Davies-Reazor, Elizabeth Auld, Charm Bracelet

We had a great time, sharing pizza for lunch. Jenn Velasquez taught us all how to make paper boxes, which was a lot of fun! Thanks to Anne, Elizabeth and Jen for making it a great charm swap!

What fun!! I would so love to be part of something like this :) So many wonderful things to be involved in yet so little time to try them all! ;)

Wow what a fun swap! I love seeing what everyone made. These types of little fun challenges always seem to be a wonderful burst of creativity and time for new designs outside of the box :)

thanks for sharing!

Sounds like a great time! I really enjoyed participating in the swap last year...to bad I missed it this year.

Sue, this is great!! You 14 ladies really rocked your charms again this year! :-) I'm glad you took a photo like this one since I didn't get to see all of the charms and had hoped to...plus you labeled them. I love the total variety and amazing techniques that every one used for their charms. That was such a great idea to meet over pizza - hope everyone does it again next year. Anne really was an amazing charm swap host! :-)
