My First Inchie Monday!

One thing I've learned is that in anything you do, you have to start somewhere, sometime.  Well, this is my start and it's today.

When I dream of creating art, I usually picture layers of mixed media.  Everything is something of a collage.  Wow.  Is it hard to do this with an inchie, but my goal is to find out how to make that happen.  My first day out is a simple collage.  The theme is FOUND for 12/9.  When I saw the word for today, I was so excited, because what immediately popped into my head was how coincidences happen.  This morning my friend was telling me about how her beloved beagle ran away on Friday and that they had searched and searched and checked with the shelters, all to no avail all weekend.  I asked her if she had tried looking on Craigslist and she said she hadn't, so I immediately pulled up lost and found for our area.  After wading through none that worked, the last entry said Found Elder Beagle in her city.  I yelled, "that's your dog!"   And it was.  It made my day and I have been smiling all day knowing that I helped get her guy home.  Then I decided to check out what this week's inchie was and it was FOUND.  Really?  I knew that all I could think of was beagles.  So there you have it.  Kismet.


It's simple and it's a little fuzzy, but I'll get better... I promise.

Thanks for the fun, Every Inchie Monday!
