These are my treasures from the charm swap and trades at the retreat. Aren't they wonderful! Some of them came with names and personal contact information, which is great for remembering who they came from. I had made copper bird nests with fresh water pearls for eggs. I swapped them all so I want to make a couple more.
Finds from vendor night. Nick Naglor made the beautiful icon. The copper, wood, and turquoise journal plus charm was made by Jill K. Berry. Vintage papers from Joan Lawrence and fabric samples from Erin Mueller and Mary Welch of Pursue Your Art.
The Chunky Book hosted by Kathy Beringer is filled with beautiful art by the retreat Attendees. As you can see from the picture it is quite chunky! Another keepsake!
Kathy even had all the books bagged - what a great presentation!
