Welcome to The Inspiration Board Creative Party. If you stopped by yesterday, you probably saw my announcement about a new and improved blog schedule here on homework. Not big drastic changes. This link party will still go up on Tuesday BUT, it will now remain open until Saturday. More time to link up and more time for others to check out your links. The features will be moved from Friday to Monday. This will give me the weekend to go through the links and choose the featured projects. Hooray for small changes.
So let’s get this creative party started. Share your creativity by linking up below. I love pinning and sharing your projects. Remember, the features will now be on Monday.
Hello friends! Many of you already know that I’ve been blogging for over 4 years now. When I started blogging my work as a marketing consultant had slowed (aka unemployed). About a year and a half ago, I started consulting again part time. Six months ago the company I was consulting for hired me full time and I’ve been juggling the blog schedule and my job ever since. It’s actually very doable since our son is now in college. I work on this blog in the early mornings (with my coffee), evenings and weekends.
Starting this week, I’m going to make a few small changes to the blog schedule to allow me more time over the weekends to prepare the posts. I want to enjoy the process instead of feeling rushed and stressed to meet deadlines. Currently, I host The Inspiration Board Creative Party every Tuesday and post the features every Friday with my projects on the other days.
Here’s what you can expect starting this week.
Features from the previous link party. This will give me more time to go through the links which I love doing.
Happy Friday everyone! I’m so glad you’re here and we inspired each other throughout this past week. Thank you to all of you that stopped by, commented, emailed and shared projects. I appreciate you so much. In case you didn’t have a chance to swing by, here a little recap of what I shared.
I have to confess, I’m a bit of a notepad hoarder. I love pretty notepads and often receive them as gifts. The problem is I love them so much I don’t use them. I’ll grab other bits of paper to jot a note and “save” my pretty notepads.
Valentine’s Day is around the corner which got me thinking about red. Even if the day of love is not your thing, these red projects are sure to inspire – whether it’s adding a dash of red to your kitchen, upcycling a red wagon or using splashes of red for your next party – red can instantly make an impact.
Welcome everyone! I’m so happy you’re here on my favorite day of the week. I love seeing all the projects being linked up throughout the week. If you’re new to homework, I host this link party every Tuesday through Thursday and the features go up on Friday. So thank you so much for stopping by – new and old readers. I appreciate each and every one of you.

I jumped on the gold leaf trinket dish train and also borrowed some inspiration from the painted animal trend. Combine the two and you you get a Gold Leaf Elephant Trinket Dish complete with little heart footsteps for Valentine’s Day.
TGIF everyone!! Phew, what a week. But we did it. We created and inspired each other through another week. Hooray for creativity. A big thank you to everyone who stopped by this week and especially to those who shared a project on The Inspiration Board.
There’s been a lot of discussion among bloggers about link parties, the value of them, whether to keep hosting them, whether to co-host with several bloggers to form a mega party etc. I’ve been solo-hosting my link party for almost four years now. The number of links goes up and down and I’ve toyed with the idea of joining a group or at least co-hosting with someone else. I don’t want a mega party with over 500 links but I’d like to offer you more visibility for your projects. I’m not sure what to do. If you have an opinion, leave me a comment. For now, I’m leaning toward keeping my party small and just here on homework. As always, I post the features on Friday and leave that as the top post all weekend to hopefully give the features additional traffic.
Well, enough rambling about the link parties. Let’s get to this week’s features but first up, here’s what I shared this week.
Friends, the big game is coming up and if you’re like me, it’s all about the food and snacks. Well, a little about the game but the food is a big part of it. I’ve rounded up some of my very own recipes that I’ve shared here in the past years that make great game day eats. There’s sandwiches, snacks, healthy options, desserts and even a little treat for your four-legged friends. Enjoy the game – enjoy the food – enjoy the fun.
First up is Classic Game Day Eats – a variety of sandwiches to please everyone.
