The Inspiration Board: link party spotlight ~29~


Thank you to everyone who linked up a project on the Inspiration Board this week. The projects were all wonderful. If you came by to visit and check out the links, I hope you were as inspired as I was. Here are the projects in the spotlight this week.

Beautiful journals by Rook No. 17. You would never guess that these contemporary journals are made from old books. A great upcycle by Rook No. 17. 


Reindeer5
File this one away for next year. Adorable reindeer advent calendar by Sandy’s Space. Each reindeer has it’s own look and character {and a goodie inside}.

If you need a 2012 calendar or can use a last minute gift, this Crochet Calendar from About Crochet is perfect. The monthly pages are beautifully designed with areas for notes and ideas.

Saraccino brings us more fantastic stamping ideas. Give your backgrounds a cool look using textured wallpaper and stamp ink.

This is a project that’s been on my list and Live Love brings us a wonderful step-by-step tutorial with lots of pictures of the process…and gorgeous faux mercury glass results. 


eggnog tarts 2
Oh my… this is a trifecta of goodness. Beautiful photography, beautiful styling and a pastry that sounds delicious. Egg Nog Tarts by Silver Boxes

Johnnie at Saved by Love Creations has become quite the rolled magazine artist. She’s made some amazing pieces and I just love this heart dish. Head on over to her blog to see all her paper magazine goodies.

Super cute wine charms by Paper Vine. These are made from Vintage Vogue Spool Buttons and have such a great look to them.

The Lazy Hobby Hopper whipped up this yummy looking lemon cake with Italian meringue frosting. It looks so light – I’m sure it would be harmless to have a piece or three. 

 
vanilla2
I spotlighted this project several months ago when Mrs. Happy Homemaker first whipped up her batch of homemade vanilla extract. I’m so glad she linked up the final product now that the vanilla is ready after three to six months storing time. A great gift idea – either make well in advance and gift ready-to-use vanilla or give with instructions on how to store the vanilla until it is ready to use.
