If I can't be my own, I'd feel better dead.

First, short background. I am not super girly, and have tons of male friends, so I am already set for a very non-traditional, co-ed baby shower. So instead of the usual games (that I hate, hate, hate) I wanted to have some sort of craft/activity. My family and friends run the gamut from uber-crafty to can't-operate-gluestick. So onsie decorating would be way too much for many of them, even with paint pens. Oh, and there will be small kids around. And knowing my friends, it will be a very casual, come when you can, eat when you want type thing.

For those of you unfamiliar, inchies consist of taking a 1" square piece of paper or heavy card an decorating it. I was considering making them 2" to be a bit easier on everyone. I envision a table with pre-cut inchies, glue, paper scraps, drawing tools and stickers. Nothing crazy, just enough for everyone to decorate a bit. I would have information on the table as well as some "examples" so I am not stuck explaining it a billion times. In the end, I would arrange and glue them all together as art for the nursury.

So the question is, am I insane? Or is this a good idea?

I think that is a great idea. And 2" sounds good, just in case people only feel like doing one.

I think it's a great idea!  Maybe you'd want to have some baby/parenting magazines available for folks to cut up too? Not to put pressure on you, but I'd love to see pictures of the final project.

I find joy in creating and helping others create not just jewelry and crafts but best of all, the life they want.

If you know your nursery colors or theme, you might be able to ge art that really matches the decor?!

Theatre education is less about acting and more about crafting.  I design and build sets, costumes, lighting plots, theatrical cosmetics, and I LOVE dying, aging, and distressing anything!
