Every Inchie Monday--Lumberjack


Every Inchie Monday    Lumberjack

I have been contemplating this Inchie since I saw the prompt. There is a list on the left side of the posts with all the prompts for the year if you like to work ahead. 
The only thing that kept coming to my mind was the game of Jacks that I played as a kid. We had 12 little silver pointy things called the Jacks and a small ball. We threw the Jacks out on the sidewalk and each round we had to first throw the ball into the air above the Jacks and pick up one and catch the ball at the same time then 2 and the ball and so on and so forth til we got to the 12 and that was the challenge to get all 12 in your hand and the ball without dropping any of them. I just hit the highlights of the game. Maybe some of my contemporaries will remember also.
Which brings me back to this Inchie. A play on words, a stack of lumber with Jacks all around. "Lumberjacks"
One of the ladies who entered said there is actually a Lumberjack Day and her Inchie had pancakes on it. Pretty cool.

Happy Creating--

I love your take on the theme, I actually thought about jacks as well but was sure I would not be able to make that happen in beads.

I used to love to play "Jacks!" Alas, it was a simpler time; I think you could convince kids today to play something so frivolous. Besides, it's probably illegal to be throwing pointy objects around anymore. Fun idea! Have a brilliant day! c

Now, that was REALLY thinking outside of the box. I love it!
