    Oh, groan. I thought I would be joining you, but I managed to foul up my inchies. I was steaming along, happy with the fact that I'd made some inchie blanks ahead of time. I made 8 so there would be 2 hosties. THEN I put them side by side to take a photo and noticed they were different sizes!!! Upon measuring them I found most of them were probably about 1.25 inches. Why would I have precut these in weird sizes?? We may never know. I don't have the heart to redo them, so I'll either just keep them, or try to trade with someone who's okay with a bizarre size, lol. Y'all have fun! Just for the heck of it I'll post photos. I kind of like them, so I won't be sad if I have to keep them.
    (BTW, I've done lots of inchie swaps and this is the first time I've messed them up like this!)

    The little yellow square is an actual inchie for comparison, lol. Even the smaller looking ones are bigger than an inchie. Sheesh. I'll be giving my precut squares to my grandkids to decorate.

    Plumhill2001, I see some space there. Can’t you trim them down a tad. The flower and the leaf might not work, but it looks like the rest might. Arrange the yellow Inchie on top of each and see if it can work.

    Lurking. I've never done inchies. But CQ's recent puzzle piece swap is getting me to think outside the box...although since inchies are square, this would technically inside the box.

    Plumhill2001, you’re awesome inchies are here! I’m so glad I thought of trimming them because they’re perfect and thank you for the hostie!

    Heather, your inchies are here also and thank you for the hostie! I am really fascinated by these trees. They are really cool!

    Trimming was a great idea! Haagmm was talking about thinking outside the box which reminded me that it's okay for the drawings to bleed off the edge of the card. I always feel like I have to show the whole image, centered on the card. It actually gives some extra character to them when they're cropped down a bit. Making lemonade out of lemons!

    I can echo that, Plumhill! Your inchies have me rethinking my art for sure!

    I would like to join and do both the mixed media and hand drawn swaps. I'm a newb now, but was very active back around 2010. I hope to be getting back into swapping!

    Those are great, Smidgen! Collaging on inchies is a super power! (Beyond me!)

    Awesome job, carolynsn! I will be watching for them! I’m hoping to have a Winter Inchie Swap after this one.
