Charms Swap Stats

Hi Charm Swappers!

I wanted to pass on a bit of Charm Swap Trivia for you...

I have finished sorting the swap and here is how it turned out.  The list below are the final participants (the people I rec'd charms from).    At one point we had around 50 participants but several had to drop out due to unforeseen circumstances that prevented their participation; a few people signed up but never heard from them again and finally a couple people I'm not sure about...I thought they were sending charms and waited but nothing ever showed up so I had to go on w/o them.

So as you can see we ended up with 39 participants.

There were 379 charms in total with approx. 71 different sets!!! 
Now some of these sets were "similar" not exact and a couple people made several different designs w/o any dups.  so it was a whopping great success!

I tried to give you a nice assortment of charms, not getting your own and I tried to give you only one charm from any given designer.  It got a bit confusing at times because some didn't have names but I believe they turned out correct.

I will be posting them in the next couple days so you should start rec. them by mid to late week!

I hope you enjoy the results as much as I do!!
