When I hosted the Oh So Charming International Charm swap last year I thought to myself - "If I can get 25 people to join this swap will be a success" - boy was I ever surprised. Not only did I far exceed that goal with 111 packets of charms sent in, totaling over 3,600 art charms, but charms have become so popular that there are swaps everywhere you turn. With the ongoing interest in art charms and the number of hits this blog consistently generates, I've decided to start a mixed media art charm group. In order to keep things interesting and for me to have time and resources dedicated to the group, I am asking for an annual donation of $12.00 to join. Of course this isn't mandatory and no one will be turned away. Think of it as a subscription to everything Oh So Charming. I have started the bare bones of the group and will be adding things as the membership hopefully grows. I will be selling limited edition charm kits, including vintage and hard-to-find charm supplies. I'll provide monthly techniques related to mixed media art charms, a place for you to connect with other like minded charmers and either join in group swaps or trade with each other one-on-one.
I am a pretty easy going person and am open to any feedback and ideas that you may have. My goal is to make this group successful and the #1 resource for mixed media artists who create charms.
I hope you'll join me. You can either click on the "pay now" button in the sidebar to donate and receive your invite to the group, or email me to join and check it out without donating first. The group is closed so you will need to receive an invite before you can access it.
I will be creating an Oh So Charming button soon so that you can display it on your own blogs and sites.
