Friends, the inquiries have been coming in like crazy... readers want to know if I will be hosting a Christmas Charm Bracelet Swap.  The short answer is, yes.

I'm going to post the "kits" on Etsy next week for swappers to grab up. The question I have is, how many kits and thus, how many rounds of 12 should I put together.

Also, I'm thinking of offering different styles and would like to know if there is interest for that. I imagine one round to be traditional and vintage (think dark red and green with vintage style touches),  one whimsical and fun (think bright red and green with fun, candy and toy style charms) and one round of the pink/blue/silver vintage theme like my local peeps and I are putting together (think raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens)...

So if any of these ideas appeal to you, won't you please leave me a comment so I can make the plans this weekend and put the kits in Etsy early next week. By all means, leaving a comment isn't a commitment to take part in the swap, but it will surely give me an idea of how to plan the event.

I'm a "pink, blue, silver vintage" kind of girl - and this time I am not going to let the next swap pass me by...I adore your charm bracelets.

I'm interested!! I think! Just put together my Halloween one today and my fingers are killing me but it's SO worth it!! I'd like the traditional/vintage or whimsical/fun for Christmas. I think Mom and I will double team this one. Did anyone else take 2 weeks to get their kits besides Mom and I? It was basically 5 weeks from when we sent our charms to when we got the kits back (must sit on someone's desk at customs for a week!!!!). Is there enough time?? There is so much interest - you will have your hands full! Wish I was closer and could help you!

That's why I'm starting this one earlier! When swapping there is always some sort of holdup. I would like everyone to mail their charms to me no later than Nov. 10.

Lucrecia said...

All 3? I honestly can't choose, but I want to be in on the swap!

MJ said...

I am definately in but would likely only do 2 packages this time (as I had so many leftovers! I made 3 extra bracelets with all the extra stuff I purchased)! It helps having participated in this swap to better see what kind of stuff works too! I am also the "pink, blue, silver vintage" kind of girl altho the pink, aqua & red might be fun too! Jeez, I'd be up for any combo!

Chandra said...

I want in on this one! They all sound fab, but I would want the pink/blue/silver/vintage version most.

Hey lady - I'd love to! I'd ultimately be in for any of the three themes - but I like the "whimsical" one the best! : ) Hugs!

I have never (a) made jewelry (b) worn a charm bracelet or (c) participated in a swap. But I kind of want to try. How's that for noncommital?
