Charm Swap 8 - The beginnings...

Hi, Michele Grady here again with the CS8 update for this week.....Well, it's pretty early into Charm Swap 8 and the beginning of a charm swap usually start out pretty slow when it comes to news. I can tell you that the sign up sheet is now full which means we now have our 20 charm swappers ready to go. YAY! We also have a few members on the alternates list in case someone has to drop out unexpectedly. So it looks like so far so good!

Two of our CS8 swappers actually have a starting point for their charms. Betsy Bensen of BetsyBensen sent photos of  these 22 cute little ocean jasper stones that she plans on using in her charms.
And Victoria Takahashi  of Experimetal sent in an action shot of her "picking through some rocks" as her starting point for her charms. Victoria says "this is a small portion of many days on many beaches over the years" about her vast  collection of beach stones. I'm not sure what I am more envious of.... Her collection of rocks or the fact that she must have a beach nearby!

We still do not know what either of these women will be doing with their stones (and not sure if they know yet either!) but at least they both of them have a head start on the rest of us. I can not wait to see what they come up with!
