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!
