Every Charm tells A Story


I just LOVE making these.
I wish I could make more for people.
Every time I start
on the Journey
of making a Story Charms
I find
that they become more complex.
I am not sure
if the story behind these charms
is longer
or if I
made them differently.
All I know
is that they fit closer together
and were harder to arrange for the picture.
Have I ever
written the full story
behind what the charms mean?
I don't think I have.
There are 24 Charms in this story.
I always give a copy of this
to the recipient
so they know what their story is.
