Tea and Inchies

I'm doing a 'Tea and Inchies' swap with Kimmie at http://artinredwagons.blogspot.com/
Her post here explains it all. I like the way she describes the joy of having a handful of inchies to feel and look at. I've made mine really thick so they are almost like charms. I love the way they clatter when they are dropped into a dish.

So, Kimmie, I'll be posting 10 of these to you tomorrow...along with a few packs of tea!


I only intended making a dozen..... but got carried away and made 35. I rather like tiny art.



Before I go I just want to thank Lynn at http://hercreativespirit.blogspot.com/ for giving me this award. She's a lovely lady and I'm so glad I found her (thanks to ABAA).

So far I've not managed to work on this small size of canvas but your work is beautiful and I wish I could get my hands on them and look at them in real life.

Your inchies are beautiful tiny works of art. I love them. Are they made on Stampbord tiles?

Love your inchies

Shari said...

Since you made so many, can I play??? Love inchies and have made hundreds of them in the past (you can see some of them on my blog if you scroll way, way down). Email me privately if you'd be interested in a small one on one exchange. My days of joining large collaboratives and swaps is over, but when it comes to a few inchies I just can't help myself!!
-hugs, shari
P.S. If you don't recognize me it is because I have up until now been a silent reader of your blog :)

Those inchies are gorgeous... I love the one with the owl, very special. 35 inchies, you really did get into it (but inchies are a bit like that arent they?)

Sounds like a great swap!

I love inchies! I've been making them too. I'm new to mixed media, and even crafts in general. I have to post mine on my blog.
