Inchies

This is a set of inchies I made for a personal swap partner maybe last month or earlier. I can't quite recall. So, if you don't know what inchies are you're not alone. I had NOOOOO idea till I came across Craftster, and I was still confused about them. Apparently, they are just 1 inch by 1 inch square, tiny individual pieces of artwork. Weird, huh?
Yeah, the concept was kind of difficult for me to grasp. Like, what can you do with them? Who wants a bunch of tiny little crap laying around? Well! You can make all sorts of things with them. Greeting cards, line up a ton of them in a frame, etc. I still don't really like the idea of having a ton of them all over the place, but they are pretty fun to make!
These were a few of my favorite ones. Notice the Michael Scott one?! Haha, the office.

Haha! I had the same reaction to inchies when I first learned about them--on your blog! But I so much admired the way you used up your scraps, making art from keeping things going to waste, that I started collecting my scraps and trying the inchie thing too! Although, I am terrible at measuring and cutting straight lines, so I'm thinking of getting a paper punch...

BTW, I've been reading your entire back catalog, which I hope is not creepy! I love your artwork. So inspiring! Do you have a PO Box where surprises can be sent?
