A couple of weeks ago I got a lovely parcel in the mail, of charms, cards and a really nicely made magazine from South Africa called 'The Bead Book'.
The charms below are ones that I received as a gift.
I started the special day as a way to celebrate handmade art, life and International unity.
Last year we had thousands of participants join us from, tropical islands, busy cities, farms, little towns and countries all over. --America, South America, Asia, Australia, New Zealand, France, Italy, South Korea, Japan, Puerto Rico, Canada, the Philippines, Germany, The Netherlands, Panama, The Virgin Islands, Jamaica, Sweden, Malaysia, Hungary and all over the UK, Spain, and India
This year we had all 6 populated continents that have comfortable living conditions- (No one from Antarctica, that I know of has joined in the celebration... ) as well as island territories off shore of the major bodies of land.
All kinds of people have been very creative in their way of making the day fun.
I am excited about the next big event in 2011!
If this interests you and you would like to participate, tell us about it! We'd love to hear!
All are welcome to join in and be involved.
Wishing you a charming week!

And the star-spangled banner in triumph shall wave
O’er the land of the free and the home of the brave!
If you have kids, teach them *consideration* as soon as possible.
You will enjoy life far more each day if you do this one act ASAP and enforce it often. Our current world lacks a vast amount of common sense and consideration.
These are important values that should be instilled within the hearts and minds of impressionable babies and children.
Be kind to one another, considerate and thoughtful.
To all of my American friends, Happy 4th
