Hello all!  I am so excited to have found this community!  I have been doing fiber crafts since around 7, when I embroidered my first quilt block for my gramma.  She was amazing and taught me many types of crafts which have evolved over my life.  Crochet, embroidery, general crafts, sewing, and more recently in my life I have done hemp jewelry,  and learned to draw.  I stubbled on inchies and become super excited about them, although without a ruler my first sets are just over an inch and quarter lol!  Want to get into some swaps once I get to a place I feel more comfortable with them!  So excited!  Will link to some photos once I figure out how!

Hi there, welcome to Craftster!  I revealed your images for you.  They are lovely and I think they would make good tattoos.   Grin

Get with KittyHerman. She is our master of rubber stamp craftings here. You can probably arrange a trade. Not to leave anyone else out mind you...she is just the one that I know of that makes really neat stamps.

i Spy is anything fabric {for the ones I am wishing} that a child can identify. As in, I see a green tree. I see a tree frog. I see a butterfly. I see an ice cream cone. That sort of thing. If you check my signature line...I have a link to what I am wishing to make. That one is not mine, but similar to what I am wanting. Basically anything with an identifiable item. That you can describe to a child to look for.

I also have an i Spy bottle in my bathroom. But that is different. It is filled with beads and sequins...and other 3-D stuff. And you spin the bottle around to find things. Wastes your time on the pooper  Grin Forgive me. I am class clown here.  Wink
