The Inspiration Board: Creative Party 234 & Easy Glitter Tape Place Cards

FROM MY ARCHIVES : Easy Glitter Tape Place Cards

We’re two days away from the big feast and I can’t wait. Tomorrow I’m going to start prepping my side dishes and one of my favorite dishes is homemade cranberry conserve with applies and mandarin oranges. Pop, pop, pop, I love hearing those cranberries burst open in the pot. I say it every week but I want to make a special point this Thanksgiving week and tell you how grateful I am that you stop by and share your links here on homework. My little link party has grown in the past few months and that’s what keeps me going. So, thank you, thank you for supporting this little blog.
Now, let the sharing begin.

The Inspiration Board: Spotlight 233 and Silver & Gold

It’s Thanksgiving week! Hip Hip Hooray! Here in the U.S. we’re prepping for the biggest feast of the year. I know many of you are starting to prep your turkeys. Every family has a different way of preparing the bird. Some people use a brine or buttermilk for a few days before roasting, others place butter under the skin or even deep fry their turkey. There are so many yummy ways to prep that bird. Plus, all those side dishes – phew… it’s a lot of work but so worth it.

So if you’ve been busy preparing for the feast and haven’t had a chance to visit lately, here’s a little recap of what I’ve been sharing lately.

And now for the projects featured this week. As always you guys blew me away with the beautiful projects linked up.

The Inspiration Board: Spotlight 232 & Fleeting Fall Colors

Welcome back everyone. We’re off to a brand new week of sharing inspirational ideas. Thank you so much for linking up your project on The Inspiration Board last week. I can’t tell you how much it means to me week after week to see the party grow. We’re midway through November and it’s going to be a mad dash to the holiday finish line. Confession time…I’ve done absolutely nothing to prepare for the holidays. It usually hits me as I’m enjoying a leftover Thanksgiving turkey sandwich and then it’s go-time!! Who’s with me?

Let’s move on to the features but first, here’s a little recap of what I’ve been sharing.
