    More info please!! do you mean charms for scrap books? charms for your wrist?
    I actually just bought some cute christmas charms I didn't think I would like them but I used some stars at QVC and loved the look not too flashy some what flat!
    If that is what you are talking about I would be interested.

    yes spinning - scrapping charms -
    I did a swap on another baord and I didn't think I would use all the charms - but I loved them and would love to host one here! I will post a few sites that sell them for those who do not know -
    When I know how many people are in I will list categories
    example: stars, hearts, spring theme, summer theme, words, etc...
    then each person will buy 3 charms per person in the swap - send them all to me, I will divie them up and send them back in SASE. Some of the sites even have cheaper prices when bought in bulk:
    heres an example: http://www.fancifulsinc.com/

    hope that explains - but don't hesitate to ask more questions!
    Patty

    Once you've decided on a time frame, I might join. Things are pretty hectic for the next couple of weeks, but this sounds like fun. Who else is interested?

    We are addicts aren't we!
    I wish this board had a place to list all the great sites permenantly! I lost my 'favorites' when I switched from AOL to Verizon DSL last week, but THANK GOODNESS the ladies at CreatingKeepsakes message board are a wealth of info!

    Have you been to www.creativexpress.com - I just ordered from them and the coluzzle packages and 14.99 paper are great!



    ooppps...sorry I know your wallet isn't going to like me very much
    :(
    My dh almost hit the floor when he saw the last credit card bill. But he tolerates it because it is my one hobby/passion - I keep reminding him that I don't go to the bars, gamble, smoke, etc. :)

    I originally didn't know if I would really use the charms but I have - I ad them to boarders, tags, titles! They are that perfect little something! :)

    Patty, got an idea of the timeframe? I think I'd like to join in but it all depends on when we have to have it sent.

    ooohhhh.. here is another link I just found on another site:

    http://www.victoriancottagetreasures.com/index.html

    I've never ordered from them so I don't know how much shipping is and I couldn't find it on the site - but they have some BEAUTIFUL stuff!

    ARE WE READY:

    It looks like we have:

    Spinning
    Merrypoppins
    Pammy Jo
    Beansmom
    DMoss3377
    Mickeyluvr
    RRBB
    Nicurn


    That makes 8 + me = 9. Correct me here if you have changed your mind or can't make the date. We will purchase 3 charms each per person (again they do not need to be the same charm just related!) So everyone will buy and get 27 charms!

    I will need you to seperate them into seperate packages of three with your DISname on the package and mail them to me with a SASE (please include a few extra stamps that I will mail back to you if you don't need tham).
    I highly recommend Bubble Envelopes to keep these precious charms safe!
    They will be due to me by June14th.
    I will PM you with my addy later.

    Here are the choices - 1st come 1st serve:

    angels/cherubs
    stars
    words
    lock-n-keys
    animals/insects
    garden related/fruit
    hearts
    water related (dolphins,fish, etc)

    (if you found something great that is not one of the above just let me know - I just want to make sure that we don't end up with 32 hearts! LOL)

    Have fun shopping!

    PattyT
