The Inspiration Board: Spotlight 197 & A Pinch of Green

Hello friends! I hope you’re off to a good week so far. Last week turned a little sideways for me because I got hit with some nasty end of season bug and went down for a few days. Just when the weather was turning nice and I thought I had escaped the cold and flu season unscathed. I’m better now and ready to tackle a new week. I huge thank you to everyone who visited last week and shared projects on The Inspiration Board. I’m always so inspired by your creativity and can’t wait to show off the features below.

WEEKEND INSPIRATION: Mushrooms, Meringue & Moss

Weekend Inspiration: Mushrooms, Meringue & MossFor some reason, I’ve had mushrooms on my mind lately. I recently posted an Asian Vegetable Stir Fry that included Shitake Mushrooms and a Light Fixture to Mushroom Night Light Upcycle. Then without realizing I was getting a little mushroom obsessed, I gathered these mushroom ideas for the Weekend Inspiration. But aren’t these mushroom ideas amazing – I mean how can you not hop on the mushroom train.

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 décor, cooking and baking new recipes, or sewing some spring outfits? Whatever you’ve been up to, I can’t wait to see.
