99 inchies

I am mailing off my 99 inchies today for the inchie swap I'm in
... just in the nick of time too ...

It feels like I haven't been in a swap for ages

The way it works is like this:
Make and send your pieces to the host;
who then divides them all up equally;
and mails them back
... so 99 of mine go out ...
.... 99 of other people's come back ....

this one is a favorite - I don't know if I can part with it

and this one is too.

I think I have time before today's mail to make 2 more inchies so I can keep these babies.
That's the hardest thing - giving up art babies.

These are WONDERFUL! I agree... it is difficult to give up art babies sometimes :)
Hope your week is wonderful!

I know just how you feel about sending your beautiful art "babies" away, Kimmie. It's like sending away a piece of your heart; and in essence, you are! But think of how happy the other artists will be to receive your awesome inchies! Hugs, Terri xoxo

PS I hope you DO have a chance to make a few duplicates for yourself!!!

Teri said...

I don't blame you! What if all 99 of yours are just the best out of them all? Then, there is a bit of regret. I say, take pictures of all of them individually so you can always reproduce any if you want. Or make a card out of the photo or something!

I have been in a bunch of large swaps, but only one that had 100 or more players. Unfortunately, the swaps I've been in, everything is the same or similar. These are all so unique. I would have trouble coming up with enough layouts to make 10, much less 99. You did an excellent job.

Elizabeth said...

I'm not sure how you can part with any of them, really. I'm so into those inchies -- I have no desire to make them, but I do enjoy appreciating them, especially yours!

These are so utterly beautiful. How exciting to receive 99 different ones back. Your work is wondeful!

I love your favorites also- especially the one with the copper wire!!! 99- what an accomplishment!! My 10(!) to you are almost ready to go!!!!LOL

Fiona Whitehead said...

Oh my goodness - 99 inchies! Takes me all my time to do one!

Kimmie said...

just a note here: it's not 99 players! that would truly be a nightmare for the host!!! I think it's only 12! I'll show a picture when they get back :)
