Open to everyone:
A weekly challenge that will leave you with 52 square inches of pure creativity!
This is a great exercise for those that don't have a minute to spare.
Imagine the end of the year....what will you create with your inchies???
How will you interpret the Inchie Word of the Week?
Create one square inch of art with anything, post it on your blog and Flickr
then leave a comment here with a link to your INCHIE.
An inch a week is all we ask...
but it's ok to miss a few

Every Inchie Monday began January 2, 2012 and we will continue it in 2019 with National Days.
Every day is a national day of something and we are going to see what special days the Mondays are.
Would you like to join us?

Dress up your pet day


Dress Up Your Pet Day is an opportunity
to wow the neighbours, and to unleash
the inner diva of your favourite pooch or Persian.

My goldfish only agreed to a little hat to celebrate this silly day ;-)

Inchie Thank God it's Monday Day

Today it is "Thank God it's Monday Day, what a nice day to 
start this Inchie Monday year.
And this is what The National Day Calendar says about this day:

NATIONAL THANK GOD IT’S MONDAY DAY 

National Thank God It’s Monday Day is recognized each year on the first Monday in January.  This day was created to celebrate all things that will occur on a Monday in the upcoming year, such as; a new job, promotion, birthdays, holidays, vacations, etc.  This is also a day, which starts out the first full week of the new year, to look ahead with real hope, energy, enthusiasm and excitement for all things to come in the next 12 months.

Inchie Friesland


Not really a country,
but many of the Frisians who live there, feel like it is a separate country ;-)
We have our own language, it's the second language of the Netherlands!
Friesland is the northwest province of the Netherlands.
Friesland or Fryslân as we call it here, is my "Heitelân" (= Vaderland = native country),
so I thought it was fitting to choose it as the last country of this year!

Jolande and I hope you enjoyed our trip around the world
and it would be great if you would join us again in 2019!

365 days complete, 365 new days to go!
May you have a wonderful New Year!

Inchie Sweden

For this inchie I took one of my own pictures of the statue of Astrid Lindgren in Stockholm.
I really like it that behind the statue is a painting of her most famous creation: Pippi Longstocking.

Margriet and I wish you all
a wonderful Christmas.

Inchie Poland


I've never been to Poland
and I don't know a lot about the country.
But I hope to go there someday
and the one place I really want to visit is Auschwitz.

Inchie Montenegro

When we made a trip around the Adriatic Sea we also visited Montenegro.
We really enjoyed our time there and we even swam in the Bay of Kotor.
This picture I found in a flight magazine and it reminded me of that time.

Inchie Chile


I don't know much about Chile,
but the first thing I thought about was a chili pepper!
Chili peppers have been a part of the human diet
in the Americas since at least 7500 BCE.
The most recent research shows that chili peppers were domesticated
more than 6,000 years ago in Mexico,
and were one of the first self-pollinating crops cultivated in Mexico,
Central America, and parts of South America.
The name of the plant is almost certainly unrelated to that of Chile, the country,
which has an uncertain etymology perhaps relating to local place names.
