I really love the colorfulness of 'Ugly Betty'!
The designers for the show are very talented.

I am happy that they film locally, here, often, it's fun!
I'm not sure if I could post any pictures... Legal?

I'll find out!

~*STORYBOOK RED CHARMS!*~ go Hollywood!

I will be hosting a charm swap this fall-winter for the Life Through Art foundation.

The theme will be story books, however each charm must have RED as the focal color.

Red Shoes?
Red Apples?
Red Riding hood?
Red Wagon?
Red Dog?
Red Hearts?
Red Sky?
Red Dress?
Find a story book you love and incorporate your spin on the imagery, characters, objects within the book etc. Add a tag or print up mentioning your inspiration and be sure to make your charms with the color RED as the focal or main accent color.
The size of each charm MUST be smaller than 1 inch including the jumpring and any extras you might like to add. 1 inch in total size.
The number of charms to swap will be 5-10 pieces per person with a commitment to send an extra charm as a donation. Depending on the number of people who sign up, the number may be slightly higher or perhaps more than one group per skill level will be set up.
There will be 2 groups, advanced charm makers and beginner charm makers.
The quality of both groups will need to be your best work because the charms that are sent as extras will be auctioned at a fundraiser in HOLLYWOOD!
Ooh so glamorous!
More details will follow, I am just getting you warmed up to the idea.
Please pass the word on.
The swaps will be due the first week of December so you have time to think about this one.
Please leave me a comment or email me to let me know if you wold like to join in.
