I got my inchies from Hoppy and love them too. 

The top row..... so cute!!!  And the titles on the back just add to their obvious charm.  'mousemowing', 'a little yardwork for mr. crab', and 'redusss, reussse, resssycle'.  Ha, love it!  Then the bottom are for my love of rainbows, and inspired by my pinterest.  The tree is awesome! 

And this witch is great!!!  She counted the 4 of these as one, so I got extra.  Whoo! 

I didn't get a clear shot of this one, but its french knots.  After cross stitching forever and embroidering for a little while, you'd think I'd know how to do these.  I have been messing them up for years and years, and just finally made a decent looking TWO french knots last weekend, so it made me laugh to see all of these.  Beautiful.   Cheesy
Thank you, hoppy!  I hope you liked making inchies.... I hope everyone has!

I received inchies from ErintheRed yesterday and Kimchery today...what a pleasure it was opening the envelope to find the tiny works of art they made for me! This has been one of my favorite swaps...thanks to Nilmerg and Kimchery for organizing! Now, on to the inchies.

These are from ErintheRed-aren't they wonderful?
Top row-beautiful cherry blossoms. I love the colors and I am so glad Erin included the branches, I think they add so much.
Second row-a charming ladybug and a cute little gerbil in my favorite colors!
And last but not least (my favorite in fact) a four-part amoeba/paramecium. Is this not awesome??? I love it and each one stands on its own if separated from the other pieces. So clever!

Next, the inchies I got from Kimchery:

Just look at these little creatures! I love insects, and these are so pretty-the picture can't capture the shimmer (Pearlex??) I love how the bee's wing goes outside the border, and the two-part caterpillar is amazing. The little squirrel and porcupine are so very cute, Kimchery Cheesy

She also sent some polymer clay ones as extras!

I think they are great..I love the glitter and the little jewels she attached.

Thanks for being such great swap partners, ErintheRed and Kimchery!

Well I've been very lucky to get Plumcrafty as a swap partner, but I have a huge apology to make to you: I lost two of the inchies you sent me.  I knew I'd have trouble b/c I grabbed my mail on the way out, and when I opened it up (and awed at your beautiful work) I realised I'm a real ditz and had nowhere to keep them safe in my bag  Sad as they weren't affixed with blue tack or tape.  So would you mind posting the ones that didn't make it?  I am devastated!

There is 9 inchies here, I received 11.  3 down the left hand side are pagan - Yule, Imbolc and Beltane.  Then there is Studio Ghibli and supernatural folk (fairy and Vamp bite marks!).  A queen's jubilee was meant to be a bonus.

I'll bring a ziplock bag out with me from now on - so they can't get loose in the bag!

Thank you so much Plumcrafty, they are beauties.
I'd have to say this doesn't seem much like a beginner's gallery at all.  Everyone's inchies are amazing!

How amazing are everyone's inchies. We have all been so lucky and I am hard pressed to find favourites... they are all so good! Grin

I too have received my second set from Quasior and they are fab too.

She chose from my mining, beach and seaside, farm and ruins theme. There were quite a few extra, wasn't I lucky? Cheesy
Thank you so much!

Yay! More wonderful little inchies!  I am so happy to be part of such a creative group of people!  I'm SO glad that I found craftster!

i am now terrified about the quality of the inchies I made...

but these are the ones i made for TheManicCrafter

i went with a world travel...gypsyish theme....i feel like mine are really plain and simple to the ones i've seen here... apologies to both my partners! I didn't realize just how creative you could get with these!

Those are great, I can't wait to get home and see them! I just hope you like the new set I had to make you while I was up here, my hands were shaking so bad from being upset I was glad that I finally got them done and some of them were even pretty darn cool  Smiley for my lack of drawing skills (I'm a better painter, lol)

I do have to apologize that it appears my pictures were taken in the middle of the night. I 'm guessing my shutter was not working correctly and I will try to take better pictures when I get home.

From quasior:

I love the handdrawn bugs. Look at the detail on such a little space! I was going to send these to a friend to try to get her hooked on craftster, but I am growing quite fond of them and may start my own bug collection.


Some really great pieces of art on a mini scale and also, as an awesome laughter inchie, a quasior. Get it? Haha. One theme of mine was space. Love it!

And from ransom:

Some cleverly placed cutouts I believe. Quite the time spent finding such good artifacts I imagine. I like the pilot a hot air balloon with the little bird. It's awfully cute. And a beautiful array of colors throughout the collection.

Thank you both!!
