Everything is Black and White


Or not..... I was making black and white charms for a swap -- I decided to use black wooden dominoes and cut them in half. After cutting 30 dominoes in half with my dremel(you only can get one square per domino) , I put them in a safe place, to return to them later. That safe place is VERY safe. Even I can't find THAT safe place. Luckily, the swap deadline was extended! I didn't have any more dominoes, but I could easily find dice. So dice it is. I'm quite happy with them. They're a bit big, but I am determined to make a bracelet or necklace with the returns! I'll post a picture them as soon as I get them back. Ruth has hers posted on her blog too. And a great ee cummings poem! Very cool Ruth! I hope that I get one of those!

I'd LOVE to do a pink and green charm swap! Maybe someone wants to host that! Hmmm, any takers??? (it's hard for me to host -- I'd be happy to, but since most of the players are in the US, the postage is almost double to send here and return, so it's kind of silly for me to host.

Martha, your dice make fun charms. I bet you'll end up with a great collection of charms.

Love the dice! I hope you find your dominos. I've done that too - very frustrating, but funny when I run across the safe hiding place later :)

Hi Martha!
These are great.
Yes, you will get one of Ruth's, we all get one of one another's!

By the way, I will be hosting a baby blue and pink swap later in the year.

If you need a host for the green and pink, I am happy to do it.
All you need to do is advertise!

Gorgeous charms, Martha! Love them, they are so unusual.
I also did take part in a charm swap recently, and struggled with mine for sure.
