One last inchie...

You would think that with the holidays there was eons of time to get crafty right??
But that does not seem to be the case. Just a couple of pocket letters and an inchie is what I have gotten done so far.

Most of this past week has been playing boardgames with the kids and the past 3 days also playstation gaming as my son got 3 new games for Christmas. And his crazy mom actually likes playing the kiddo lego games!

Hope you all are enjoying the holidays and getting your crafting on...
Every Inchie Monday #52: Next
The last inchie of 2015!
It's crazy to think that an entire year has passed since I made my very first inchie!

The arrow is pointing at the next 52 inchies coming in 2016!

But first let me just show off a pocket letter I made for a swap on!

Pocket Letter
For this one the theme was sender's choice... Which was really nice!
I randomly picked out pretty stuff and had a great time!
I bought a new stamp, it was the cutest and I had to get it!
It's the very sleepy kitty cat... I stamped some pocket sized patterned papers for that pocket as goodies along with some border punchies.

(Darn it!!! Just noticed I spelled sweetness wrong! Pffft... At least I got her name right... lol)
The leaves was cut from a thank-you note I had received that day. (Funny how every time I see a piece of paper, (or any little thing actually) I am always wondering if it would fit into a 2½x3½ inch pocket! ;) (Is that crazy...)
(That was rhetorical!)

The butterfly button and the flower punchie were goodies in a PL I received from India. The bird on a nest and the imagine tag were from another PL.
I like how each pocket is it's own... Let's hope my swap partner does too!

I wish you happy holidays and a very happy new year too!

Final Christmas letter of 2015...

Another tough inchie challenge!
How to simplify something as complex as evolution to fit in an inch!?

From ape feet to human feet...
Looking forward to next week's easy and straightforward prompt!

Christmas Pocket Letter
This PL went to my pocket letter pal in India, Aparna.
 I have used journaling cards for some of the pockets. The gold striped is a little envelope I have received in a swap. The Christmas bulb and cornet were both goodies in an incoming PL.

When I receive an envelope that has next to nothing on it I reuse it. On this one I could cover the address label with another label, or in this case, a journaling card. And the old stamp label I covered with this year's Christmas stamps.
We have some really cute ones with gingerbread hearts, men and women...

It's a tractomotive?

Wow, this was a tough one! It was so hard to fit a locomotive into an inch!
I ended up just doing a toy locomotive...
(No, it's not a tractor. Really! See it has the connector on the wheels! lol!)
(Note to self... Locomotives needs more than two wheels... ;)
(Hey! It's a tractomotive!)
(No, wait! It's a tractor/loco transformer! My son would be down with that!)

Christmas Pocket Letter
Swapping some Christmas spirit through This one went to Susan in California...
Those little owls are my favorite Christmas PL decor! So cute!

Just two more days, then it's the wondrous Christmas holidays have arrived. Yay!

Half an angel...

Every Inchie Monday #49: Angel
I didn't want to draw an itty bitty tiny angel, so I opted to just draw part of an angel...
I love angels!
Since this is the season, I added plenty of stardust glittery gelly roll!

Pocket Letter Advent Calendar Part 3:
The final part of this little calendar for adults went just around the corner... At least it seems like Germany is very near by after having sent mail to Australia, Japan and Canada!

 I am sending out my last Christmas themed pocket letter monday hoping it will make it all the way to India before Christmas.
