Charm swap 10

Hello Thursday!  Here we are with a Charm Swap update!
Czen says 'Sneak-a-boo! These are only sneak peeks of one half of the charms. This may be academic, but stay with me. I have thinking a lot about charm, allure, lure, bait. So these charms are a play on those words. I am using what are called 'Colorado Deep Cup Blades'- they are copper fishing lure spinners! They are enameled in various shades of watery/fishy blues and greens. Hand made murrini are also fused (kind of like little starfish). The second half of the charms will take me a little longer to's very...involved. I think the charms will be called 'aleure' which is from the latin: 'a' which means 'to' + 'leure' which means 'a lure'. So, literally 'to a lure'!'
They look gorgeous!  I can't wait to see them in person!

Charm Swap CS10

Good morning Thursday!
We have an update from Victoria!  She tells us, "As previously forcasted, I of course have changed my mind. Today I made my first metal prototype for CS10. I will still need to make a few models to fine tune it, but I am very excited to have my idea locked down! 
I cannot show you guys yet, as I do not want to ruin the surprise, I can only let you see a teensy-tiny bit of my paper model, if I showed any more it would give it away!"
We can't wait to see what she has come up with!

Auntie EM is going on vacation!!!

It's getting to be that time of year when Sue and I have a lot of commitments and we are going to put Ask Auntie EM on hiatus for the summer.  We would both like to say THANK YOU to all of you who read our posts every week and who asked such thoughtful and challenging questions!  If you asked a question and we haven't answered it yet, do not fear!  We will be back in the Fall every Tuesday just like this year.  Please keep the questions coming!  You can email us at and we will keep your questions for our new season of posts!

Again, thanks so much for all your comments and questions!  We'll see you in the fall!
