How it all Started

January 2006 started an amazing Calender Art Round Robbin project That I was part of it was headed by Kathy Wasilewski 24 artist made up 2 groups. Each month in the mail we received a different calender to work in. This project has just now come to an end in 2007. Those of us involved got to know one another through our art. I grew so much as a artist as each month came, I stretched a little each time just trying to keep up with all the amazing artist that came before me.

Through this amazement I wanted to create more with the group... this is how the Charm swap came to be.

When I am involved in a group project I always long to know about the artist who's work I have received and how they created it, I asked each of the girls in this swap if they would send me a little blurb on the process of how they made there charms, I had intended on making up little how to books to send back to all them with there charms... then I realized just how mad I was... how was I going to create and assemble 20 of the bracelets and make 25 how to book!? then it dawned on me that I could create a blog as my gift to the group. This is how Just Simply Charming Blog came to be.

Please enjoy The work of 24 amazing artist as they Share a little bit of there self's with all of you!

Thank you so much for this incredible blog!! I've joined my first charm swap and was looking for inspiration and these ideas are fantastic. Thank you for making them available to the world. I'll have to stay posted to see if you start another swap because I would love to be involved. Thank you again for all your hard work.

Just like the first comment, I am soooo greatful for all of the time you put into your blog!

I am in a journal page swap WITH CHARMS for one of my Yahoo groups (June '07) and was glad I saved a link to your amazing list of "how-to's."

Beautiful work by all of the artists who participated! Thank you for inspiring so many others.

I can't begin to tell you how inspiring this blog has been. I'm SOoo excited about making charms! I had no idea so many people were doing this. I have made ceramic beads, for years...and I create graphics in the computer...little paintings that it's hard to market, as there can be no original. I can't wait to use my own drawings and digital art to make charms! So cool! Thanks, to all who participated in this amazing project. (and somebody contact me, if you do it, again!)
