Art Charm Swap 2012 Reveal and Your Opportunity to Own Some of these Charms

Glass Addictions by Jen Cameron

The day for the reveal is finally here! It was the middle of August when I announced the 2012 Art Charm Swap. However, this more than a charm swap. It's also a benefit for Beads of Courage. Part of the requirements of joining the swap is that each participant make an extra charm to donate for auction. ALL proceeds from the auctions go to Beads of Courage. However, Beads of Courage is not the only one who benefits....every person who bids on and wins these art charms benefits from the joy of owning a small piece of wearable art as well! Bead of Courage What is Beads of Courage? You can visit their website and read the history of this organization that provides comfort and support to seriously ill children and their families....where every bead a child receives tells a story and some children have so many beads, the strand can wrap around their necks multiple times. As fellow bead lovers, I am sure you will really enjoy the page titled "Why Beads" So what did I make for the swap theme of "laugh"? I made goofy little aliens in fun bright colors: 2012 Art Charm Swap Around 3pm eastern standard time today, the listings for all the art charms from the 2012 Charm Swap will be going up on ebay. The holidays are around the corner and the money goes to Beads of Courage. Please bid early. Please bid often. And please bid high. Here are the links to all the other charm swap participants for 2012 (and you will see why I wanted to keep all the charms for myself....bwahahahaha!): Alenka Obid: Alicia Marinache: Babette Cox: Carol Watson: Carolyn Chenault: Cassi Paslick: Charlene Jacka: Cheri Reed: Cheryl McCloud: Deb Kauzlarich: Denielle Hagerman: Emma Todd: Erin Prais-Hintz: Ginger Bishop: Inge vonRoos: Jean Peter: Jeannie K Dukic: Jennifer Cameron:  <----You are here already!
