Fingers crossed that this last blast of summer will move on soon and I can start enjoying that beautiful fall chill in the air. Don’t get me wrong I love summer but enough already. So let’s get the party going so I can live vicariously through your fall inspiration.

Hello friends! Welcome to a brand new week here at homework. I’m getting ready to head out of town again on another business trip for a week and since it’s only been a few weeks since my last trip, I’m woefully behind. I have projects I’m itching to get to, pictures I need to take and after this trip I’m hoping to get back on pace. How about you? Are you finding yourself behind these days. It’s the preseason warm up friends! We need to get ready for the real holiday craziness. So in case you missed anything here on homework lately, here’s what I’ve been sharing.
And now for the amazing projects featured this week.

Welcome to the 3rd Annual Handmade Holiday Gift Guide Link Up. If you have a handmade store, Etsy Shop, or sell handmade items, now is your chance to show off your wares and boost your holiday sales. I love supporting handmade items and I’m thrilled to host this link up every year. As in years past, I’ll create a holiday gift guide from selected items and share it here before the holidays.
Homework is proud to support handmade!

I think this might be one of my favorite projects I’ve ever made. Well, I say that about a lot of my projects. But this one was so fun to transform. Would you believe this faux vintage tin started out as a yellow plastic corn starch container?
