The Inspiration Board: Spotlight 203 & No-Bake Nom Noms

Well, we’re heading into the last week of April. I can’t believe it! I’m looking forward to May – it will be a last sprint to the end of the school year and then hopefully, a little bit of a slower pace once we reach summer. One can hope right? A huge thank you to all of you who stopped by last week. I can’t tell you how much I appreciate each visit, comment and link up. If you didn’t have a chance to visit me, here’s a recap of what I shared.

WEEKEND INSPIRATION: Kitchen Style–What’s yours?


From one day to the next, I think I could redecorate my kitchen with any of these styles and be happy. At least for a while and then I’d redecorate again. What about you? Do you have a set style or do you like to try different looks?

The Inspiration Board: Spotlight 202 & Tea Party Inspiration

Hello, hello friends. Welcome to another week at homework. I hope you had a great weekend filled with fun, relaxation and a little creativity. My weekend was filled with spring cleaning and purging. My son is nearing the end of his first year at college and he’s been slowly bringing things home from his dorm. So things are a bit chaotic around here.

Did you get a chance to stop by last week? I hope so but if not, here’s what I shared.

BLOOM: Free Printable Floral Borders

Floral Frame 1I took these photos a few years ago and ’ve been searching for them for the longest time. My photo files on my external hard drive are sort of like that messy desk drawer file drawer – there’s a system but a few things end up misfiled. But I found them and they’re perfect for spring, Mother’s Day, graduations or anything.

CELEBRATIONS: Spring Hoop Wreath with Dollar Store Flowers

Spring Hoop Wreath via homework (3)My spring pink décor continues. As I mentioned when I first shared my spring hutch, I used pink as an accent color this year. A first for me. To bring a little more pink to the room, I created this spring hoop wreath.

WEEKEND INSPIRATION: Spring Refresh

Weekend Inspiration-005
TGIF friends! We made it through another week sharing creativity. I’m hoping to get caught up this weekend and create some new projects to share with you, clean my house and put away the laundry that’s been sitting in baskets since last weekend (no lie!). And if I have time, I would love to work on refreshing with some of these amazing spring projects I found.

GOOD TASTE: Naked Cake Fail & Spring Cupcakes

Naked Cake Fail (1)I’m sure you’ve seen all of those beautiful “naked” cakes that are being pinned lately. They’re all the rage and so pretty overflowing with layers of frosting, berries and flowers. I decided to try to make one and although I wouldn’t categorize it as a complete fail it definitely falls short of the inspiration images I’ve been eyeing.

INSPIRATION: Stress Buster and Healthy Living Ideas

Stress Buster & Healthy Living Ideas

Hello friends. Last week my day job kept me super busy – busier than usual.. If you didn’t know, I work full time as Senior Marketing Manager. I blog in the mornings, evenings and weekends. It was hard to unwind each night and by the end of the week, I was exhausted. Typically, I create my projects in the evenings, shoot and edit photos on Saturday and write and schedule all my posts on Sunday. Last week I got a little more behind every day and with Easter prep I had no time to catch up, create or shoot photos.

INKLING: Printable Dear Easter Bunny Cards

Dear Easter Bunny Printable Note (2)Here’s a cute last minute printable for you. If you have little ones and you’re planning on leaving carrots for the Easter bunny, print out this Dear Easter Bunny card that I created. I miss the days when my son would leave the Easter Bunny a card and some carrots. Every year after he went to bed, I’d take bites out of the carrots as “proof” the bunny had actually stopped by.

CELEBRATIONS: Crepe Paper & Feather Easter Eggs


Oh my goodness, it’s April 1st. April Fools Day. I don’t have a fun April Fools post to share with you but I am slipping in just under the wire an Easter Egg craft. It just wouldn’t seem right if I didn’t share an egg project this year.
