Hopefully I managed the illusion of sparkle from my crystal hanging amidst the fuschia. This week's challenge is to incorporate "Sun" into our inchies. ...... pat..pat...pat... that's me patting myself on the back. New challenge is issued each Monday. Look how early in the week I am this time, fellow procrastinators ...! Of course, it's only because as soon as I saw the word 'sun', I thought of suncatchers. Dating myself I know....... and, I still like them too..... so there.

Why don't you try your hand at a teeeensy but fun inchy? It is a bit strange at first glance when you draw or cut out a one inch square, believe me. You immediately think...how can I get anything to look like anything on this?? .....but...once you begin to fiddle with it, place miniature pictures on it.. or sketch on it... all of a sudden it becomes your whole world..... and pretty soon....voila! done! ... you step away from it and wonder again ... how on earth did I manage to make it look like anything on paper that tiny? lol.....
You can see what everybody else has done at INCHYBYINCH.
I have no idea what I will do with my collection of "inchies". However, ...for now I am saving them in a perfectly sized little box that a fellow bear maker and crafter from Poland sent me..
She recycled part of a pretty envelope I had sent to her...
