charm swap

I keep meaning to enter some swaps but then I find the deadline has gone or something. I do love swaps but don't always get my self organised.
I did get myself organised for this one. Last year some time I was obsessed with making tiny little love tokens with lace and beads. I did post about it but now I can't find the post!
Anyway I didn't quite know what to do with them but then I saw an article in Clothpaperscissors about making charms for bracelets and a little light bulb went of in my head. I packaged up 5 hearts and sent them off. My swaps arrived and here they are. I have a little problem though...tthis one is my favourite as its made from wood and I am starting to use a wood a lot more in what I make but...

this one is my favourite as I am often drawn to Japanese things and I love the red but...

this one is my favourite as it uses a lot of materials that I use. It has dream printed on it... but

this is my favourite as its red and gold, a colour scheme I love but...

this one is my favourite as its made from colourful beads and I fancy having a go to make one..
Do you see my problem?
Can you have 5 favourites?!

Thanks for visiting, the Studio Seven exhib was very interesting and we are lucky to have it all on our doorstep.I love your flag quilt I could never get the union jack the right way up and I do so agree with you about taking kids out of school especially when they are young.

Looks like you are in a nice swap. For Buttons wait for the July swap to be announced. Add your name to the list of partners. Put your likes and dislikes in the post on the left hand side. You can also email DaCrafty lady to say you want to join the group.Good luck.

Of course you can have five ;). Personally, I love the beaded one - very pretty!

You can have as many favourites as you like! It's like kids - you love them all equally. :o) I love these - what are you going to do with them?
