The Inspiration Board: Spotlight 181 & White Christmas

Hello friends! It’s Friday and we did it again. We crafted, decorated, cooked, baked, sewed and diyed through the week. All while inspiring each other. Hip hip hooray for creative sharing. Thank you to everyone who stopped by this week and a big virtual hug to those of you who shared a project here on homework. Here’s a recap of what I shared this week.

And now for the projects featured in the Spotlight this week.

Wooden-Pie-Box1This pie box by The Casual Craftlete is genius. Fantastic to have on your counter or to use as a gift. I’m thinking I need several of these stacked up with different types of pie in each one. A pie condo! Heaven!

Free-Art-Print-Sisters-Dont-Count-1I don’t have a sister but if you do, this printable would make such a sweet gift. Head over to I Think We Could Be Friends to grab a copy.

Goat-Cheese-Log-with-Nuts-Honey_pinterestI’m adding this recipe to my Thanksgiving menu. Goat Cheese Appetizer with Nuts & Honey by Home.Made.Interest. It looks easy to make and the flavors sound wonderful.

let there be peace on earthBeautiful Peace on Earth card by Paper Seedlings. The stamp technique mimics watercolor and the colors are divine!

emoji in line 2These are adorable. I love using emojis on my texts and these Emoji Notecards by JacolynMurphy are darling!

Fall-Tablescape-4Celebrate and Decorate created a beautiful Thanksgiving table. That centerpiece with those magnificent feathers is amazing.

Sausage-and-Kale-Soup-closeupI’ve recently discovered kale and this Kale and Sausage Soup by The Taylor House looks fantastic. Mmmm mmmm good.

thanksgiving-side-dish-candied-sweet-potatoes-3My family traditionally makes the sweet potatoes with the marshmallow topping but I’m thinking it would be fun to get crazy and try something new. These Candied Sweet Potatoes by The Gracious Wife looks like a winner.

spate_fingerless_gloves_02_littleredwindowLittle Red Window knitted up these Fingerless Gloves and they’re perfect for typing or texting. Plus, they are so darn cute.

hutch-christmas-decorationsI may be at a loss for words but I’ll try to compose myself. This Christmas Hutch by Fynes Designs is possibly my all time favorite hutch for any season – any time. The colors, the knick knacks, the balance of everything. Perfect!

Welcome to homework's second annual Handmade Holiday link party. Throughout the year, the majority of link parties welcome crafts, diy, recipes, decor and other creative projects but often ask that you refrain from linking your shops. Now it's your turn to market your handmade shop or handmade item with the chance to be featured in a Holiday Gift Guide that I will put together from selected link ups.

CELEBRATIONS: A Touch of Fall from my Home

A touch of fall from my home - fall vignettes via homework | carolynshomework.com

These are just some snippets of fall from some of my projects or the styling for some of my projects. I love fall and when I went through my photos recently, I put together some of my favorite. Not everyday has to include a complicated craft or diy project to keep me inspired. Sometimes it’s something as simple as some peppercorns or moss.
