Happy Halloween everyone. Now that my son is away at college, I seriously almost forgot it was Halloween. I mean, I have a pumpkin on the front porch and a bowl of candy ready but I had to remind myself that the little trick or treaters will be showing up tonight. Are you ready for Halloween? I hope so!
As always, I huge thank you to all of you that shared projects on The Inspiration Board this week. Everything was gorgeous and inspiring as always.
Here’s a little recap of what I posted about this week.
In a few days Halloween will be behind us and we’ll need to turn our attention to the major holidays that are around the corner. I’ve been thinking about some homemade gift ideas and thought I’d share some things that I found. None of these gifts take major crafting, cooking or sewing skills. I think they’d all be pretty easy to create but would make a big impact. I love homemade gifts and can’t wait to start creating some of these.
Where did October go? Today is the last Tuesday of the month and Halloween is a few days away. At this pace, the holidays will be here before we know it. Oh my! For today, let’s party. Welcome to The Inspiration Board creative party. Are you ready for some amazing creativity? I know I am.
Link up your own project - something you created, made, did or something that inspires creativity.
A few years back I made a yarn bowl and it is still one of my most popular posts. You can check it out here. It’s been a while since I’ve made a batch of paper mache paste and I’ve been wanting to make some nests so I revisited that yarn bowl project and adapted it to make some fun crafty nests.
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.
It’s so fun receiving real snail mail and even more fun when it’s something enticing like a pretty envelope. I made several fun envelopes and they were so easy to create. I may never use a plain white envelope again.
You probably don’t need any inspiration to get creative during the fall. There’s something about the season itself that brings out beautiful creativity, décor and cooking. But here are some things that have me inspired this fall and I thought I’d share.

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month and of course the pink ribbon and pink in general is seen throughout October to honor the courageous survivors and bring raise breast cancer awareness. There’s always room for a little pink on one’s life, so I thought I’d round up some pink inspiration. Enjoy these beautiful pink projects.

I think fall has finally arrived here in Southern California. It’s still about 80 degrees but it’s dropping and the mornings have that fall chill in the air. High fives! I can finally start thinking about fall dishes, décor and outfits. Woot! I’m so excited! I know fall is in the air for a lot of you because there was so much fantastic fall creativity linked up this week. Thank you to everyone who came by this week, left a comment or shared a project. I’m so appreciative. In case you didn’t have a chance to pop in, here’s what I shared this week at here at homework.
Am I late to the chalkboard party? I’ve actually done a few chalkboard projects but this is my first chalkboard sign. I’m not sure if the chalkboard trend will be with us much longer but that’s okay, I still wanted a chalkboard sign for my hutch. I don’t have a mantel so this dining room hutch is my décor central. And since this frame was just sitting around and fit perfectly on the top shelf, it seemed like it was meant to be.

Have you seen the hot new craft trend called Shibori? Shibori is a Japanese tie dye technique but it is more of an art form. Intricate folds, twists and knots create beautiful dyed fabric patterns. The technique typically uses an indigo dye which create gorgeous deep blue resist patterns.
Happy Friday everyone. My fall celebration was short lived and we’re having another heat wave here in Southern California. Today it was 90. Sigh… Hopefully, this will be the last blast of heat and we can move on to sweater and soup weather. Who’s with me? A big thank you to all of you who stopped by this week and special hugs to those of you who shared your projects here on The Inspiration Board. In case you missed anything this week, here’s a recap of what I shared.
You know those instant ramen noodles – the ones that come in a compact rectangle with a little powdery season pack? Ya, those. I always keep packages of those in my cupboard. If I do make them with the season pack, I only use about 1/3 of the packet. But I rarely use the seasoning that it comes with. Instead, they’re a great base for leftovers. Beef, pork, chicken, shrimp… just about anything goes with those noodles. Here’s an example of what you can make.
I love the Dollar Store. Any dollar store; the 99 cent store, 99 cent plus, the dollar store, dollar tree or any good clearance aisle. These stores are especially great during the holidays. And Halloween brings out the best in dollar decorating. Because who wants to spend a lot of money on Halloween décor. I mean it’s fun but it’s not going to stay up for very long. I’ve rounded up some of the very best dollar store Halloween ideas. These bloggers have really raised the bar with their spooky fun.
