I adore inchies (can't you tell, hehe!)! You are only limited by your imagination ;)

This is a smaller swap for International, and open for newbies to help you get some ratings!

You will have 1 partner - you will end up mailing your partner 5 new inchies created by you.

These 5 Inchies Are Completely Sender's Choice. Get creative, try a new medium, play around, have fun!

Please, no inchies that are simply a sticker on some paper - please put your heart into these :)

You will have 2 weeks to sign up and you will then have another 2 weeks to create the 5 and get them mailed. I hope this will be enough time so that you will be able to get everything made to your satisfaction :)

With the inchies, please include a small letter or notecard with your user name, name of the swap and a little hi to your partner :) Also please be sure that they are well packaged and protected from the elements (eg. store in a plastic bag to prevent water damage).

There is no creative limit on this - make them using whatever medium you like (or perhaps try a new one?). I am hoping you will utilize your stash or raid the local dollar store for goodies to create with ;)

Please rate fairly - if you get your inchies within a reasonable time, please rate a 5. If they are extra special or your partner sends something extra, please give a heart!

You must have a minimum 4.8 rating & a completely filled out profile. No no sends in the past 6 months, no 1s or 3s in the past 6 months. Newbies are welcome with a compete profile! I will be checking profiles before partners are assigned, and will remove anyone who feels iffy or does not meet the swap requirements.

This swap is for International, as postage should not be rediculous.

Please post below if there is anything you do not want to recieve - eg. you are allergic to scented products, latex, etc (think about possible products that could be used to make inchies).

Any questions, Please feel free to PM me =)

Cheers all!

Hi! I'm a newbie and would love to join this swap. what does it mean to have a "completely filled our profile"? do you think I'd be eligible for this swap?

twobluecrows 02/ 5/2009 #

juliekim, your profile is pretty filled out, but you could include some other favorites like: colors, themes, animals, etc, so your partners would have an easier time of making something you'd like to receive.

Hi! I'm a newbie on inchies .. and I would like to join this swap.. I have an idea but I would like if you have some pictures or a site where I can find more info...

BlackWolf 02/ 5/2009 #

@juliekim - you can deffinitely join! @twobluecrows offered great advice, just adding some of your faves, so that any of your partners will have some clues as to what you would enjoy receiving :)

@Adrenalina - if you Google Inchies, you will get hundreds if not thousands of hits - look at the images, and you will see that there are so many ways to make them! Try some out before partners are assigned, see what you enjoy and what you think looks good!

Glad to have everyone in this swap!!

hey^^I'm also new and was wondering if my profile is alright like it is. and also if inchies are exactly 1inch long and wide?

BlackWolf 02/13/2009 #

@mimmeli Your profile is wonderful :D Yes, inchies are 1 inch by 1 inch (wide and long). Most are squares (you can buy a paper punch that gives you 1"x1" squares, hehe), some are circles, hearts, etc. For this one we are working on squares :)

BlackWolf 02/19/2009 #

Partners are assinged! Please post here once you have completed and mailed your inchies ;) If you need any help, please feel free to PM me :)

BlackWolf 02/24/2009 #

@BeingJulia thanks so much! Glad to have you here and I look forward to seeing your works of art ;)

@Adrenalina - yes, you send 5 inchies and receive 5 inchies (5 x 5 or 5 for 5). Thanks for asking!

Hope everyone is enjoying this swap!
