After doing 3 sets of large stars, it was getting crowded so I shrunk them down a lot and now some just twinkle on each photo or name rather than frame it.
If there is no star on your picture, it was not randomly chosen. *HOWEVER* if you want to send me postage for a prize, I will send you some charm making goodies to play with! (I just cannot afford to send everyone a prize with the current cost of postage.)
If you see a star on your profile pic or framing your profile picture below (Or next to your name for those with no chosen avatar) PLEASE send me your name and mailing info *as well as- the color of your star and if I do not know you, please describe your picture to me OR tell me the line it is on- down and across so I can find you.
You have just 1 week to contact me!
YOU CAN CLICK THE PICTURE TO MAKE IT LARGER!
The comments here are not posted to the blog if they contain your address. I moderate ALL comments -So it is safe.
Also for those who may not feel comfortable posting the info here send it to- charms2wear at AOL dot com
Non winners- If you want to send postage for a prize, contact me! :o) it's less than $2.00 for USA and a little more for over seas. This offer is open to those that are pictured above with no star, and those who may have missed the deadline and won the last round,but never claimed their prizes.
This is an email, that made me smile, which was posted to one of my charm exchange groups...

Mornin' ladies, I thought I'd tell you about how I 'articipated in Dawn's special charm party. I made 29 charms (monday was my 29th wedding anniversary) They were pc hearts with real pearls as the dangle(like the black one I sent you Amber) and mon/tues I hid them all over the place....they had a teeny card attached with Dawn's charm day blog address and a little note about spreading love and art. It had no name,just my email address on it and I asked the findees to drop me a line and tell me where they found the charm. So far I've had nineteen replies.....I left them at the restaurant where we ate and in the changing room where he took me shopping,the ladies room everywhere we went.....a couple were dropped in the fresh flowers they have at Albertson's,one at Dunkin Donuts,some where I work...well,you get the idea. It was a blast and Charlie loved playing too!! Thanks Amber,it'll be an anniversary to remember!! love ya ~smiles~ Sharon (MoonRae)

April 28th of every year = International Handmade Art Charms Day.
Also known as, International Charm Day. On this day we celebrate life, friendship, artistic charms to wear. We do this by sharing and wearing our own handmade art charms or give gifts of charms, charm making supplies or charm related items. Love, hope, charity, creativity, friendship, kindness, happiness and sharing are many of the founding components behind this event. We share with those we know and those we do not know. This holiday provides a springboard for all sorts of creative RAKS (random acts of kindness) or planned events. Many choose to share their own tutorials on how to construct a unique art charm, some set up a day of charm making workshops, some even leave charms with little notes and an email address in various public spaces. However you choose to celebrate, do it with an open heart. You will find that the world is in need of more days such as this Please join us! If you blog about this event, host a tutorial, or would like to share a story about how you plan on celebrating the holiday, share a link with us!
