Two More Silver Bella Swaps?!?

The fourth swap that I wanted to join for Silver Bella opened today. It is being hosted by my sister, and luckily, while I was out at the Safety Day activities, she signed me up.
Sweet Treat Charm Swap
Swap Opening: Thursday, June 25th, 12:00pm CST
Hostess: Wanda Clark
Contact E-mail Address: clark_wanda@...
Maximum Number of Participants: 24
Delivery Plan/Deadline: Deliver to hostess by November 1st.
Details: Each participant will need to make 24 charms that are no
bigger than 1 1/2"...that way if others want to wear them on a charm bracelet they aren't too big. The theme is Sweet Treats so think Willy Wonka meets Silver Bella. Whatever your favorite sweet treat may be...candy, fruit, ice cream, cupcakes...use your imagination and whip up something you'd be proud to wear. Each charm needs to be attached to a card of some sort with your information as well.

And then, after some deliberation, I joined a fifth swap that I came up with an idea for yesterday.
Vintage New Year's Resolutions with Flair ATC Swap
Opening: Monday, June 22nd, 12:00pm CST
Hostess: Gina Grable
Email Address: gina.grable@...
Maximum Number of Participants: 20
Delivery Plan/Deadline: Bring these little babies to Omaha on Thursday night and we will swap away. I will have little bags ready with names and we can just pitch our work in.
Details: Hey all you vintage photo lovers...This is an ATC swap that when complete, you can assemble into fat little mini-books, or whatever your little hearts desire! When we meet at Silver Bella, each participant will receive a delightful, collection of ATCs made from vintage photos and funny New Year's resolutions to go with them made by their fellow Bellas! Please create a set of 20 identical/similar ATC's using a vintage photo and a funny caption about the upcoming New Year. Use your imagination and take it to the limit with all of your creativity. There is not a particular color scheme. Embellish, embellish, embellish! Decorate one or both sides; just remember to include your artist information somewhere on the card (name, email, blog and any other info you want to share). Please keep your cards at least card-stock weight and within the standard 2.5" x 3.5" ATC dimensions. Although you may feel free to go off the card with embellishments if you dare, just make sure to allow enough on the left, long edge so we can punch and bind the ATCs with a ring if we chose.
I have to stop now. No more swaps until I've got some of these completed, or at least until I've bought plane tickets to get to Silver Bella, to go along with the registration I've already purchased.
