Hi di hi folks :D Sorry I have not been around for a while :( It has been the dreaded Ofsted (school inspectors) for the past few days and before that i was poorly so I am so sorry for no contact. Well 2 good pieces of news - I have recieved my inchies from Debs - thank you soooo much they are lovely :D I am going to display them in my craft room. I will try to get on again soon to post pictures, but I have just been so busy! The second piece of ood news is that my school got graded as Outstanding in ALL areas!!!! I have never known that before!!! Its mad!!!! Plus I have had a mention in the write up :D yay!!!
Yay - I am so glad you liked them :D And tehy arrived safely - I was like oops!!!!! they have lass in the frames - Doh!' Phew!!!
Thanks for teh compliments folks - I really appreciate them :D I cant wait to see everyones swaps too :D
Hi folks thankis for the compliments :D
I will post the images of all the fab goodies at the weekend when i remember to bring my camera home from school! :/ duh me! Long nights at the mo!
I am soooo glad you liked everything :) woop woop!
Thanks pam :D Just convo'd you and added you too :D EeeeEEEEEeeeee :D
Well I have to say a huge thank you as by being on this website I have decided to list some of my creations today :) I will list more as i get the time but i really hope you like the things on here. At the moment it is my inchie art but i will be listing allsorts from clothing to accessories, plush monsters to art dolls :D
so the link is .....
enjoy x x x
Yay - you have all inspired me to finally get some of my creations on etsy - I really hope they do well :D
Take a look for more inchie ideas - not sure if i am being to hopeful on the cost really as things are so expensive in the uk - the frames were Â£10 to start with!!! must find cheaper suppliers!!!
Anyways here it is :D
hope you like them x x x
I frame them up in sets or individually - they are beautiful as they are mini art works that are really spontaneous :) You can also put them on cards. On the valentines swap thread there is an inchie i have made and put on a card for angel eve :)
You can also get 1" square necklace frames and wear them as jewelery - I may make mine out of textiles for this swap and turn them into brooches :)
Just a few ideas :)
Woop woop I am so happy that its arrived already - had a few issues with other swaps taking 9 - 10 weeks!!!
The clay art doll can be either propped up against a wall or i was thinking she looked quite nice with her legs dangling - but couldnt figure out a way of hanging her - maybe she could have a matching chocke iwas thinking - but then it looked like she was being hung by the neck :/
Yeah the card is handmade :) I am into inchies in a big way and make a lot of art with them. The charm can come off if you wish to re use it as a bracelet/necklace :)
I am glad you liked it all :)
Dropthetacos - I will post some pics once i have found my card reader - (you know when you tidy up and you put it in that really safe place - so safe you cant blinking find it - well that is where it is :/)
Thanks everyone - this has been a lovely swap :D
Yay I have recieved my parcel from Dropthetacos and there was soooo much cool stuff in there.
I have just tried to look through this post but it is not working atm so I will upload photos tomorrow in the hope that it is working by then.
Thank you sooo much for bing my partner eeeeeeeeeeeeee :D
Pammerz and I did a swap by ourselves - but I can start up a new thread at the mo - think its the server having issues.
Anyways I have to share the fab parcel ...
So here is a link to my flickr for those of you who want to see

Yay Debs spread the love for afternoon tea over seas :) It is sooooo the best!!!
Can you get clotted cream there? MmMMM scones, clotted cream and strawberry conserve mmmmmm! I have had a productive day and made some chelsea buns and banana and pecan muffins. I wrote it on FB and now my brother is going to come over for afternoon tea in a few weeks - so I will be baking some yummy goodies for him and his family yay!
Mary is fab I recieved a message earlier from her and I think we are going to get on really well :)
When I went to China with school, one of the other staff gets lots of gifts given to him and alot of tea as you can imagine - in leaf form with lots of odd bits and bobs in it hahaha! Quite interesting at customs!
On another site i have swapped a package that was themed international snacks swap - i angeled for it and feel really bad as it still has not arrived (8 weeks later!) - I am wondering whether they have destroyed it for some of the reasons you are all mentioning :( I wish they would have told me because there was ove Â£40 worth of food goodies and an apron, flower brooch and finger puppets i made :( It also cost me Â£16 to send it!!!! Darn post office! Lesson learnt - rant over!
Make tea not war x x x

Aw Raven - I had that two weeks ago in my right hand ... and the doctor said dont use that hand - AS IF - I am a teacher - a TEXTILES teacher!!! If I cant sew then I cant breathe!!! Trying to dem on a sewing machine one handed was interesting!!! The best thing was taht the doctor said - no marking!!! I was like hmmm that aint gonna happen lol! Hope you get better soon - it is soooo painful - not only physically - but mentally with not being able to craft!!!
Hi Rawr Rawr, I have ust completed a newbie vet swap with ani as a newbie plus i have done 2 personal swaps and I am signed up to the valentines swap (ready to send on saturday when I can get to the post office) Plus I am also signed up to the childrens swap - (in communications stage) Would you like me to be a vet for you?
Erm - slightly shy now - I have 137 craft books - I only counted them recently as I was moving them all around and thought I wonder how many i have - It would have been more but a few kids at school have 'borrowed' them. My partner thinks I have an addiction lol!
I chose the heart with an anchor on...
