ACCESSORIES: Craft Stick Wrapped Bracelets

Craft Stick Twine Wrapped Bangle Bracelets via homework Have you ever made popsicle stick bracelets? It’s an old-school craft that’s been around for a long time. For this project, I’m using craft sticks. They’re narrower and a little longer than a popsicle stick. You can get them at most craft stores.

The Inspiration Board: Creative Party 196 & Paper Napkin Flowers

Happy March everyone! I’m so excited and anxious for spring as I know so many of you are too. It’s been raining here in So. California so warmer days will definitely be a nice welcome. I know, don’t laugh at me. We hardly have a winter season with temperatures hovering in the 60’s. But you know what I mean – spring is just a special time and no matter where you live. Have thoughts of spring inspired you to create something special? A touch of spring d├ęcor, cooking and baking new recipes, or sewing some spring outfits? Whatever you’ve been up to, I can’t wait to see.

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.

ETCETERAS: Oatmeal Lavender Bath Soak

Oatmeal Lavender Bath Soak - Homemade Bath Salts Even though winter is milder here in Southern California than in a lot of places, it still takes a toll on my skin. Believe it or not, we do turn on the heater every now and then especially in the chilly evenings. With spring around the corner, it’s time to start thinking or dreaming about shorts, flip flops and tank tops.

Homemade Fruit Fly Trap via homework (1)[6]FROM MY ARCHIVES | Shaker Bottle Fruit Fly Trap

Welcome to The Inspiration Board creative party everyone and thank you for stopping by. I’ve been hosting this party for almost 4 years now. Lately the number of links have dwindled but that’s okay -  for now, I’m still going to host solo and keep this party going. It’s one of my favorite things that I do on this blog. I love having the extra large thumbnails to show off your links and featuring loads of your projects on a dedicated post. I know that many of the large blogs have joined together to host mega parties but there’s also something to be said for a smaller, more intimate party. I hope you continue to stop by and share your projects here.

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.
