Yippee they're here

My steampunk exchange charms came in the mail today!!! I'm like a kid at Christmas...

Wow, wow wow they range from simply charming to futuristically amazing. Because I didn't want to overwhelm everyone with pictures I made up some slides, just click on the pictures to see them all up close.

Darling Christine out did herself all around, look at this gorgeous charm and she included a bit of link chain to get us started in the final assembly.
I wanted to show you what I made to swap as well, since we had 13 participants I didn't get back any of my swapped pieces, but that's OK I can make myself another.
If you ever find yourself looking to participate in a swap or exchange I have to tell you to keep an eye on Christine's blog. She comes up with the best ideas and she is such a gracious host!!

OMG, I just now received my charms as well! They were all so awesome and varied. I have to tell you, I think yours was my favorite (honest). This was so much fun, I hope we can do it again. Thanks! Marcy

OK. So, I confess, I've been checking your and Christine's blog multiple times a day to see if either of you posted pictures yet.

NOW, I'm even more excited. This was the swap I had the LEAST time to do and CLEARLY I will be on the receiving end of MUCH talent. So much more detailed charms than I was able to swap this go-round. :(

This will be my first charm bracelet. I think I'm a Steampunk convert!!!

Cheers!

Angie! You beat me to the post. :-) I am just getting mine written. So glad you like the charms, and you're so sweet with your comments about my swaps. Hope you and your family have a fantastic fourth!

Look how awesome! I love little trinkets like that, I bought some of Christi Friesen's steampunk grab bag, and I've yet to do much with them I just like to look at them :)
