Hello there...it's me again...I have a couple of more posts to do that to catch you up with all the wonderfulness that's been going on with me lately. Then after that, I'm going to be taking a bloggy break while I go on vacation! Glen and I will be on an adventure to California! Can't wait...I'll be taking a class and then we are going to catching up with a long lost relative of Glen's that he's reconnected with and then I'll be going to visit my mom and sisters! The whole trip is just shaping up to be amazing and I can foresee some once in a lifetime memories!
Last week, I joined my fun pal, Andrea, at her house, along with 10 of her friends for a face to face charm swap! What fun! There were actually 16 ladies total in the swap but not all were able to attend. All of the very talented and lovely ladies in the swap work together and I got invited to join since I am, well, lucky enough to be friends with the hostess!. And what a hostess she was!!!
Andrea had the best drinks and some over-the-top delicious food. Just look at this spread...
Andrea even prepared a "charm buffet." Each person laid out her charms and then we went through and picked one of each, buffet style. How marvelous!
I haven't put my bracelet together yet...some of the gals came prepared and assembled their bracelets right on the spot! Dude!
So here is my charm. Apparently there was a theme to this swap...summertime. I missed that detail and just soldered up some dominoes. That can sort of be "summertime" since sitting around playing dominoes and something I love to do when we go camping. Don't cha think??? :-)
I also brought along my collection of charm bracelet from previous swaps for show and tell.
This vision right here, with all the charms all tossed together like a charm bracelet salad just makes me so happy!
And then after we were all filled up with food, beverage, and charms, we had our picture taken. One of the gals had left already.
Thanks again to Andrea for hosting this exceptionally fun swap and I sure hope I get to join your talented group's next foray into swap land! It was charming!!!
