My First Charm Swap

Last week I sent three sets of charms I made to Indiana for a charm swap--send five charms in a set and get four different ones from other participants back (organizer of swap keeps one) along with a pin for wearing them.  This is what the pin looks like:

I've never done this before.  In fact, I'd never made anything like this before except for the glass slides/metal framed ones a la Tim Holtz.  Here are photos of what I sent:

Button, button...
In your future...
Fishing for Compliments

I also made charms that I gave to the radiation gals--Heather, Jessie, and Dawn:

Part of the fun was stamping the tags and attaching the charms.

I can't wait to see what I get back from the swap!  I'm getting a dozen back!!!

I was lucky enough to get one of your fishing for compliments charm - and it really works! I get so many compliments from wearing this wonderful charm. The rusty fish is the coolest. I have never seen one before. Thanks again!
