The Inspiration Board: Spotlight 177 & Ooey Gooey Inspiration

TGIF friends! I hope you have something fun planned for the weekend! It’s been a crazy week so I’m looking forward to a little relaxation, crafting, cooking and hopefully some more relaxation. Wish me luck on that relaxation part. If you had a crazy week too and didn’t get a chance to pop by, here’s a little recap of what I shared.

Thank you to everyone who shared their projects on The Inspiration Board this week. As always, I was blown away by your talent and loved looking through all the projects. Here are the projects in the spotlight this week.
