The Inspiration Board: Creative Party 195 & A Fruit Fly Trap

Homemade Fruit Fly Trap via homework (1)[6]FROM MY ARCHIVES | Shaker Bottle Fruit Fly Trap


Welcome to The Inspiration Board creative party everyone and thank you for stopping by. I’ve been hosting this party for almost 4 years now. Lately the number of links have dwindled but that’s okay -  for now, I’m still going to host solo and keep this party going. It’s one of my favorite things that I do on this blog. I love having the extra large thumbnails to show off your links and featuring loads of your projects on a dedicated post. I know that many of the large blogs have joined together to host mega parties but there’s also something to be said for a smaller, more intimate party. I hope you continue to stop by and share your projects here.

So let’s get this creative party started. Share your creativity by linking up below. I love pinning and sharing your projects. Remember, the features will now be on Monday.

The Inspiration Board: Creative Party 194 & Faux French Herb Pot

Hello friends. I hope everyone had a nice Valentine’s Day filled with love and sweets. And, if you’re in the U.S., many of us had a 3-day weekend. Aren’t those the best? Now that the hearts, pink, red and sweets are behind us, what have you been working on? I have to confess, we’ve been having summer in February here in Southern California. It’s been in the 80’s so my mind has been on spring projects. I’m thinking seedlings, fresh knick knacks and spring cleaning. I can’t wait to see what you’ve been up to.

The Inspiration Board: Spotlight 189 & Hanging Around Inspiration

TGIF everyone!! Phew, what a week. But we did it. We created and inspired each other through another week. Hooray for creativity. A big thank you to everyone who stopped by this week and especially to those who shared a project on The Inspiration Board.

There’s been a lot of discussion among bloggers about link parties, the value of them, whether to keep hosting them, whether to co-host with several bloggers to form a mega party etc. I’ve been solo-hosting my link party for almost four years now. The number of links goes up and down and I’ve toyed with the idea of joining a group or at least co-hosting with someone else. I don’t want a mega party with over 500 links but I’d like to offer you more visibility for your projects. I’m not sure what to do. If you have an opinion, leave me a comment. For now, I’m leaning toward keeping my party small and just here on homework. As always, I post the features on Friday and leave that as the top post all weekend to hopefully give the features additional traffic.

Well, enough rambling about the link parties. Let’s get to this week’s features but first up, here’s what I shared this week.





Here are this week’s beautiful features in the spotlight.

Hey, hey, hey friends. I’ll keep this short and sweet because it’s been an insane week and I’m sure you are just as busy.

It will be a mad dash to the finish line but as always, end with a joyous holiday. Enjoy the weekend everyone. I’ll see you back here on Monday.
