The Inspiration Board: Creative Party 228 & Cranberry Relish Crostini


Can you believe we’re thinking about cranberries and Thanksgiving dishes already? I need to get serious and start on my pre-holiday planning. I’ve probably said this here every year but I’m going to get ahead and start my Christmas shopping early this year. I’ll report back on that later because even though I say it every year, I end dashing around at the last minute. Are you uber organized and on pace for a stress free holiday season? Inspire me and share your fall and holiday projects below. I need your inspiration to get me going.

The Inspiration Board: Spotlight 227 & Amazing Halloween Cookies

It’s so good to be back home after a whirlwind business trip last week. I have some fun pictures to share with you and I’m working on a “What I Wore” post. First I have to get unpacked and survive this blistering heat wave we’re having in Southern California. In the meantime, The Inspiration Board was amazing this last week. Over 300 fantastic and inspirational projects were shared. I’m so grateful that choose homework to share your creativity. Thank you! Thank you!

In case you’ve missed anything here at homework, here’s a little recap of what I’ve been up to.

And don’t forget the 3rd Annual Handmade Shop Link Up is still going on. If you have an ETSY Shop or sell Handmade Items link up HERE.

And now for the projects featured this week.

INKLING: Boo Halloween Printable

I have such a fun printable for you today. I’m out of town this week so I didn’t get to print these out and take pictures of them. I’m envisioning these on a bright white treat bag or black bag. You could even print them out and use them as fun tags. How about labels? So many fun ways to use this simple BOO printable.

The Inspiration Board: Creative Party 227 & Miniature Crepe Paper Carrots

FROM MY ARCHIVES :  Crepe Paper & Moss Carrots

Welcome everyone. So glad you stopped by. Even though I’m still out of town for work it wouldn’t be Tuesday here at homework without The Inspiration Board. I can’t wait to see what you’ve been up to. This time of year has me thinking about knitting with chunky yarn, making soup, and filling my house with white pumpkins. The reality… I don’t know where my knitting needles are, it’s still too hot for soup and there’s not a single pumpkin in my house yet. So please, inspire me!

The Inspiration Board: Creative Party Spotlight 226 & Arachnophobia Fun

Welcome to a brand new week here at homework. Did you have a nice weekend? I spent mine cleaning the house and packing. I’m actually out of town right now – another business trip for the day job. It’s going to be a whirlwind week of airports, meetings, dinners and more meetings. I’m excited though because I bought some cute new fall clothes and splurged on a pair of leopard print pumps. So if my feet hold out I’m hoping to share some What I Wore posts.

So while I’m dashing in and out of meetings, I hope you’re relaxing with a nice cup of coffee as you scroll through these beautiful projects featured from The Inspiration Board.

Let’s start with a little recap of what I’ve been sharing.

And now for the projects featured this week.

GOOD TASTE: Los Angeles Times Company Rice

Company Rice via homework - carolynshomework (6)
Years and years ago, I was invited to the Los Angeles Times for a luncheon and presented with an autographed copy of Dear S.O.S.: Thirty Years of Recipe Requests by Rose Dosti. Dear S.O.S. was a popular column for years in the Los Angeles Times. Readers would request favorite restaurant recipes and the column would print them. Now there’s Pinterest and other food blogs where we can instantaneously get copycat recipes. But I still cherish this book and this recipe for Company Rice is one of my favorites.

It’s that old-school type of recipe, you  know, with soup and butter. According to the author, this recipe won her “My Best Recipe” prize in 1972! Yup, it’s an oldie but a goodie. Let’s make some…
