That is how many charms I have handled in the past week.
56 swap spots x 112 charms each = 6,272 charms
I took a few pictures along the way to share with you.
Here are all the packages that arrived.
When it came time to sort them, I had some help. Sunshine had a blast emptying each envelope.
I stacked them all up to see how it they'd look. Isn't this a pretty site?
So what does 6,272 charms look like?
Well....here you go.
112 stacks of charms each containing 56 pieces.
It is a good thing that I have a big dining room table.
I love this view. Ahhh the possibilities this vision evokes!
After this last group picture, they were sorted into 56 piles of 112 charms each, packaged and then sealed in their return envelopes, ready to fly back to their new owners. Sunshine and Jammer helped with that too and they did a great job. The final batch was dropped off at the post office this morning.
It took me a couple more days than I thought it would to get them all ready to mail but while I was doing it, I was able to formulate a better plan for the whole process go quicker for Round 2 in the spring.
My charms already are planned for a project (two actually) but I need a solid to coordinate for both so I set them all together so that I could get a good overall view of the colors.
Unfortunately I have a few deadline projects to get done before I get to play with these beauties so I'll just enjoy the picture for now.
Thank you to all who participated. I truly enjoyed organizing this swap and am looking forward to hosting Round 2 sometime around March once Daydreams arrives in stores.
