Charms Arrived

I have OODLES of Blue, White, Silver charms.............which I will photograph and post soon.
Started a long term substitute position today.  I will enjoy knowing day-to-day where I will be subbing, what class and the names of the students.  A smidge panicked that art takes an even further step away from reality, but I will need to focus really organize and MAKE time.

Will post pics soon.
Until then.................have a great day!!

Blue White Silver charm Swap

so to sum things up.
School started.
I got busy with substituting, co-leading a brownie troop of 25 girls, being a Mom to three kids, husband working 7 hours something has to give.  and it was and has been my art.

But, I did manage to pull off charms for a new swap with a new yahoo group, artcharms.  I signed up innocently to make charms with the theme of blue, white and silver.  and the list of swappers grew and grew....until 38 signed up.  38!  a little more than what I was anticipating.  But it was a deadline that would FORCE me to create.  Sad that I need a deadline, but true these days.

So here are some pictures from the charms that I made, some attempts that I didn't mail and some that are to be developed some more.

These are the charms in process.  I formed wire, added polymer, UTEE and ephemera.....twisted wire and these are waiting to have beads added and some sari silk (which I am LOVING!!!!)

The finished charms.  I am pleased.

I had an idea to make these felted circles, add some crystal white and clear beads.  Did not finish but plan to, I think these have some potential. 

Playing with making balled headpins without enamel.  I like these.  again, potential.

I am still playing with these disk shapes and adding words.

Hope to be back on here again soon.
Which also means I am playing with some of my projects!
