The new theme at Every Inchie Monday this week is odd. No question as to how I would interpret this, it had to be socks!!! Odd socks are the bane of my life. Mr Beez is innocent but the other two males in my household, my sons, are guilty as charged. They have a dreadful habit of leaving odd socks lying around in their rooms with the result that only one makes it to the wash. Consequently, I have a whole box of odd socks that I keep in the hope that its partner will turn up. On days when this happens I am strangely elated over such a small thing. One day, I thought all my Christmases had come at once when I recognised that there were three socks for which I had had their missing partners for months. Imagine my upset then when I realised that youngest son had simply raided the odd socks box and worn whatever was to hand. Therefore the socks I thought I had “found” were just the original odd ones back in circulation. Grrrrrr! Anyway, here are my inchies that were created from this constant source of irritation:
These were made using some papers that I will tell you all about tomorrow. I used some to create the background squares and then stamped on to them and cut out the little socks. The socks are actually Christmas stocking stamps that I’ve cut the tops off.
Even just looking at these is making me anxious!!!
Thanks for buzzing by.
