The Inspiration Board: Creative Party Spotlight 221 & Bowled Over

Welcome back friends! I hope you had a great weekend filled with fun and some creativity. We’ve hit that end of summer sweltering heat here in Southern California and I’m eager for some fall weather with that distinct chill in the air. I want to try on sweaters and make soup but, for the time being, I’ll be fanning myself and trying to keep cool.

You all knocked it out of the park last week on The Inspiration Board. The link ups were sensational and I had so much fun going through the projects. Thank you each and every one of you for sharing here at homework.

And here’s a little recap of what I’ve been sharing.



And now on to the projects in the Spotlight this week.

The Inspiration Board: Creative Party 221 & Felted Acorn Cheat



Welcome everyone! Is it too soon to bring out the acorns, pumpkins and all things fall? We’re at that awkward time of year when it’s still hot but we’re ready for fall. Here in Southern California we get some of our hottest weather in September and October so while I decorate for fall, I’ll still be in my shorts, tanks and flip flops! Is the weather turning in your neck of the woods or are you pretending like me?

Ready or not, fall is almost here and I can’t wait to see what you’ve been up to. Maybe you’ve whipped up a batch of pumpkin bread or put away the sea shells and brought out the autumn leaves. Whatever it is, let get to the creative sharing.

The Inspiration Board: creative party spotlight 220 & Fall Food

Welcome back everyone. I hope you had a great weekend filled with fun and a little creativity. I worked on some creative projects, took photos for a new project and did some shopping. I have another business trip coming up in a few weeks and I needed a few things. It’s hard to pull together business outfits that are comfortable, stylish and professional when the weather is is so warm. If you have any tips let me know.

In the meantime, a heartfelt thank you to all of you who linked projects on The Inspiration Board last week. I’m always amazed at the creativity that you share. Here’s what I’ve been sharing in case you missed anything.

The Inspiration Board: Creative Party 220 & Patriotic Napkin Rings

Patriotic Napkin Rings with Stars via homework - carolynshomework (6)[3]FROM MY ARCHIVES : Patriotic Napkin Rings

Welcome to The Inspiration Board! I’m so happy you’re here and ready to join in the party. Most of the link parties have become mega-parties with several hostesses and 400+ link ups. I’ve thought about joining a group of bloggers to co-host but I like solo-hosting, keeping the party on the smaller side and sharing lots of features. I may change my mind at some point, but for now I’m going to keep this party the way it’s always been. So let’s get ready inspire each other and share our projects. I love going through the links and sharing your creativity throughout the week and of course posting the features.

The Inspiration Board: Creative Party Spotlight 219 & Homespun

Welcome to a new week here on homework. I hope you had a fantastic weekend filled with fun and creativity. I worked on a few craft projects that I’ll be sharing soon and tried to stay cool. It’s been hot, hot, hot here in Southern California. I hate to say it, but I think I’m ready for the fall cool down. I think the cooler weather will inspire me to work on some bigger projects that I’ve been wanting to tackle – like painting our dressers, cleaning out the attic and tackling my overstuffed closet. Even though it’s hot and that busy back-to-school time, The Inspiration Board link up was still brimming with great ideas and creativity. Thank you so much for sharing your projects.


Here’s a little recap of what I’ve been sharing in case you haven’t had a chance to visit lately.




And here are the featured projects that caught my eye this week.

The Inspiration Board: Spotlight 213 & Inspiring Summer Sherbert Colors

Hello friends! If you’re here in the U.S., I hope you had a fantastic Fourth of July weekend. The holiday weekend was also the end of my weeklong staycation so it’s back to work (at my day job) for me. I got a lot done during my week off including having family and friends over on the Fourth. I never did make it to the chaise lounge with a tall cool drink and a magazine during the week. But, oh well, it was still nice.

A huge thank you to all of you that shared projects on The Inspiration Board last week. The party had been dwindling but was back on an upswing last week. Hooray! For those who haven’t had a chance to pop over lately, here’s what I’ve shared recently.

The Inspiration Board: Creative Party 213 & Summer Capiz Shell Cake Plate

Capiz Shell Cake Plate by homeworkFROM MY ARCHIVES :  Capiz Shell Cake Plate

Welcome to The Inspiration Board Creative Party! I’m so happy you’re here and I can’t wait to see what you’ve been creating. I’m actually on a little staycation from my day job so I’m happily spending time between my craft table, relaxing and doing a little shopping. I have big plans to tackle my stack of magazines outside on the chaise lounge. I’m going to try to unplug a little and pretend I’m at a resort. Even if it’s for only an hour each day it will be priceless.

I’ll let you know if I’m successful. In the meantime, let’s make this the best party ever.

The Inspiration Board: Spotlight 212 & Refreshing Happy Hour Ideas

Well, here we are in the last week of June. Has everyone adjusted to summer vacation? We’ve got moms with little ones, moms with kids returning home from college and everything in between. Summer is great but it’s definitely an adjustment from the regular structured routine. My empty nest won’t be empty in September since my college son decided to move back home. He’ll be attending a local college, so you won’t see any amazing posts about converting his room into a craft room just yet.

I big thank you to everyone who stopped by last week. Sending you all virtual hugs! In case you missed anything, here’s a little recap of what I’ve been sharing.
