Here's my set of inchies from our very generous angel, Distant_Twilight. These are very cryptic! I especially like the simple technique of the colorful "choice" inchie, as well as the "you" inchie.
I received these right before Christmas, and they have been buried under Christmas decorations until now. I apologize for taking so long to post them. I won't tell you how long I looked for where I put them.
Thank you so much for being our angel! You extra work is appreciated!

And here are my last inchies from Ink_A_Dink. She sent four instead of just one. Thank you!

Here are my latest three sets of inchies. How I've loved getting these in the mail!

These are from Missriss:



The threads (middle left) and the seed beads (lower left) have got to be my favorites. You can bet I'm going to copy the thread idea one of these days! I also like the shape of the cut-out word on the thread inchie, instead of just a straight cut.


Here are the inchies from Krafty Karasu:



A very interesting wax spot (middle left), and I know how hard it is to place those itty-bitty leaf cut-outs just where you want them!


This last set is from Ink A Dink:



So much detail on these! I especially appreciate the counted cross-stitched letter (second inchie on top row). I also like how Ink A Dink used torn paper under two of the more exacting cuts. All very nice!


I also appreciate all the nice comments on the inchies I sent. The little baby hand was in a set of baby stamps that I found on sale one day, and this is the first time I've had occasion to use it. That "secret" is about my grandchildren.
Like I told the members of my team, my secrets are not real confidential -- just little tidbits about my life, quirks and wishes.
I really enjoyed this theme -- Thank you, Kartiana, for hosting this swap.

Take a look at these inchies I received from your.bestnightmare:



Being a librarian, I especially like the stylized book -- plus the brain, plus the people in goggles & glasses, plus the eggs, plus...

Clever little inchies! Thanks so much!

Don't you just love going to the mailbox these days?
Here are the inchies I received from r.forslund this past week:



She even made three extra music inchies for me! You probably can't see the light green glittery color in the one on the second row that says "feel spirits,"  but it's so nice and swirly and ethereal. I really like the simplicity of the turquoise one with the green square in the upper corner.

Fun, fun, fun! Thank you!

Here are the inchies I received from bananasandhair this week:



These are so intriguing! I love the dream inchie (3rd on top row), the multiple face photo (3rd on middle row), and the colorful inchie (middle of the bottom row) the best. Now I need to look at what everyone else has received from bananasandhair to see if I can figure out any of her secrets!


These are the inchies from kartiana:



Many of these are layered and embellished, but you probably can't see all the details in the picture. I love the bird in the second row and the use of the map on the bottom row. Quite cryptic -- all of them.

Thanks to both of you, bananasandhair and kartiana!

Here's the card I received from blupaisan that hold the great inchies she made:




Now -- here are the inchies! Lots of textural elements, including a real dried flower (middle row, 3rd down).



Blupaisan remembered from the last swap that I liked flowers and music, so she sent those themes to me.
These inchies are so clever! Thank you!

I also received from Beckashell this past week. My themes are music, flowers, birds, and pink. These use various techniques and are all so special!



I've been taking my little inchies out everyday and just spending time looking at all of them. Thanks again to all of you in Group 2 who swapped with me!
And I've thoroughly enjoyed seeing all the inchies that everyone else has received. This swap -- my first ever! -- was so much fun!
Sincerely,
librarylover

Here are the fabulous inchies I've received so far. I still can't get believe how wonderful they all are!

First, from blupaisan, a "baker's dozen":



These are the first inchies I've ever received because this is my first swap. Hand-drawn and watercolored -- so much detail! I've looked at them for hours! The tea tag lifts up, and underneath it says, "Remove tag under penalty of law."

- - -

Next, from Xandcraft:



The flowers were photographed by Xandcraft from her garden, except for the waterlily. Beautiful! The little musical notes are three-dimensional.

- - -

Envirocraft sent these detailed inchies and included a special bonus inchie from Canada:



The little birds are three-dimensional and that's dyed lace that the birds are perched on. She made two extra birdhouses for the little birds. (Don't know if you'll be able to read her notes.) The teacups are photos of her mom's collection and coated with diamond glaze. Wish I had real teacups like those!

- - -

Titaniumhip's inchies are next:



Except for the second flower, which is a collage, all are pen and ink drawings with watercolor. Don't you just want a cup of tea from those two teacups? And the bird feet/chicken feet cracked me up! How clever!

- - -

Today I received three envelopes of inchies that are all so unique!
These are from malmow:



I love the backgrounds and borders on these. Such intricate little drawings she has colored, cut out and pasted on!

- - -

The next ones are from DaisyTattoo:



Don't these make you smile?!?! Take a look at that little old man with the bird on his head!

- - -

These inchies from Efirechild are mounted in a Mary Engelbreit card that says "Too much of a good thing is wonderful!" I agree!:



That's a pink feather in the upper right corner, and three little silk flowers on the middle row. Don't know if you can see all the detail in the background on the music one or the pink background on the bottom inchie. I love the stylized bluebonnet (the state flower of Texas) on the bottom left.

Thank you, thank you, thank you, All! I'll still be posting another set when they arrive.
I'm so blown away by all of these, and still can't get over the fact that you made them all especially for me!
Sincerely,
librarylover
