HOMEWORK READING: Willow and Sage

1WIL-1401-Willow-and-Sage-600x600When you think of Stampington & Company, you think of stamping and paper and pretty crafts. So I was surprised when the editors of Stampington & Company emailed me to see if they could feature one of my scrubs in their next edition of Willow and Sage. I happily agreed because, you know, it was Stampington and Company. They explained that their first issue of Willow and Sage had just been published and sent me a copy.

The Inspiration Board: Spotlight 167 & Say Cheese Inspiration

Woot! It’s Friday friends! We crafted, baked, decorated and diyed through another week. Today is the big day when we move our son into his new college dorm and his new adventure. I’m so excited for him but of course, feeling like my little baby bird is leaving the nest. So while I pack up the car with what seems like everything he could possibly need, drive to his new school and get his room set up, enjoy the projects in the spotlight this week.

If you didn’t get a chance to drop by this week, here’s what I shared.

Homework: Back to School Ideas to Make Life Easier

1-Round Up Back to School

Where did the summer go? It seems like a minute ago, the entire summer was ahead of us. I had big plans. I was going to get refreshed, organized and ready for fall. And then in a blink, summer is almost over and I’m not refreshed, organized or ready for fall. Oh well, like it or not, fall is around the corner and it’s back-to-school time.

I love all the back-to-school inspiration. I’m in awe of darling bento box lunches with sandwiches in the shape of animals and wonderful embroidered lunch bags. But for me, I need easy and make-life-easier type projects. Back to school means getting organized and ready for the hectic schedule.

I’ve rounded up some ideas that are easy to achieve and some that will make life a little easier as the school activities take over our lives.

Hello, hello! Welcome to The Inspiration Board Creative Party! I’m so happy you’re here and can’t wait to see what all of you have been up to. Summer is winding down but it’s still hot so it’s hard for me to think about fall projects. Hopefully, some of you are ahead of me and will inspire me with your fall inspiration. It’s hard to believe we’re rounding the corner to another season. Before you know it, it will be the mad dash from back-to-school through the holidays!

If you’re new to homework, leave me a comment and introduce yourself. I love meeting new creative friends. So let’s get this creative party started.
