Jeremiah was a Joyful Inchie....:-)

This may be a stretch, but when I contemplated this week's Every Inchie Monday word: "Joy," the only (literally, the "only") image that came to mind was Joy to the World's, "Jeremiah was a Bullfrog." So this past week, just to try to get that image out of my head to make room for the real Inchie I would ultimately do, I drew a frog (in larger than Inchie size, sorry...cheated again this week and sized him down...LOL!). And then I drew his pond. And then I got to thinking how joyful would it be to have nothing better to do than to sit in the middle of a beautiful pond, on your own little lily pad.

Needless to say, the real Inchie never happened, because, as it turns out, Jeremiah was always the Real Deal! :-)

So...I ended up scanning in the pond, and the frog - for some reason I drew them separately, then had to cut the teeny tiny little frog out(!), and stuck a Pop-Dot behind him so he stands out a bit.

Inchie Friend

So many possibilities for this week's Every Inchie Monday word prompt, but not wanting to make any one "friend" feel bad that I didn't use their pic in an Inchie, opted instead for a simple little drawing representing those I consider Friend! :-) Always there. Always by my side. Always willing to bail me out of jail if the need should ever arise!

A little bit of Peace on Monday ;)

This week's Every Inchie Monday word is: "Peace," and I knew the minute I saw it what I wanted to do. Just getting it done was another matter, but! I got it done, and, it's even Monday yet! :-)

I sort of cheated this time, and worked in a larger format, then scanned and resized to Inchie status. But I love it! Or maybe it's the "subject" I love so much...

There is nothing more at "peace" than a sleeping baby - a pencil drawing, enhanced by colored pencils, of  Ava at three months. :-)

Sing, Sing a Song Monday


Every time I thought of this week's Every Inchie Monday word: "sing," I started singing (in my head, mind you, don't want to annoy the masses) "Sing a Song" by the Carpenters. So I made my Inchie sing! :-)  

I used a Serendipity Square I made awhile back for another project, that still is not done, and fashioned a singing musical note from some purple FunWire I found in my closet when I was cleaning it out. (Amazing what a person can find in a major clean-up-and-out.)

So, remember to "sing a song" as you go about your Monday....:-)
