Hope this year is doing everyone well, so far. I know, 5 days in isn't the time to mention this, right? Well, at least you can say that I asked. LOL
I do love the new year. New beginnings, new challenges and new Inchies! So it is time to start the new year with a new list over at Every Inchie Monday ! YAY!
Let me ask you a question, don't you hate when you do something the same way for a long time and then think to yourself, "I just now thought of a better way to do this, why couldn't I think about this in the first place?" Well, that was me this week. I Just thought of making an inchie for each year to attach to the top of each strip of that years inchies. So I went back and did 2012-2014, and then did one for this year so that I could start this year with an inchie header on it. Here they all are.
I used some delicas that I recently received from a friend that were not numbered, but I liked using them for this. Then I attached all the years onto their inchie strips so now I know which one is which years.
Now, this week's theme is Egg, and I decided to make an Easter egg. I used 5 colors of Delicas, I loved the pastel colors that I used. I really like how it looks even if it isn't exactly egg-shaped.
I do hope everyone has a blessed and creative new year and I do hope that you will decide to join us all over at EIM. I know that we would all love to see what you come up with. But, even if you don't feel like joining in on the crafty fun you can drop by and check out all the great artwork over there.
Take care and have a great one!

Good morning Tina, I love your idea of a year header strip. I wondered what you did with the inchies. I was going to join in but I procrastinated and forgot until I saw your post on FB this morning. I am starting a blog and hope to get my etsy going. Here's to a Better and Blessed New Year.ReplyDelete
Thanks for your post, It is never too late to join in. When you do get your blog and store started let me know. I will check you out. Thanks againDelete
Great Easter egg inchie. Almost forgot to tell you. PaulaReplyDelete
You are so clever. Yes, I know exactly what you mean. It's one of those "smack yourself on the head" moments HAHA! This is the perfect way to keep track of your Inchies. I will need to think of some way to preserve mine by year too. Happy New Year!ReplyDelete
Thanks alot Jean.Delete
Love your pastel easter egg - so pretty. Your year headers are a great idea. When I get around to putting all of mine together from last year, I'm going to make a header too. As you say, great ideas....ReplyDelete
Thanks Kia, Now all I have to do is to figure out how I want to wrap the top around a dowel, Working on the design for that though.Delete
Yay, the idea to start with the year on top of an inchie chain is great. I love your colorful egg inchie.ReplyDelete
