The Inspiration Board: Spotlight 163 & Good Wood Inspiration

Happy Friday everyone! It’s so good to be back. I’m staying put for awhile but as I announced on Tuesday at the link party, I’ve started working full time again and so things may get a little hectic. My goal is to continue here on my blog as if nothing has changed. Wish me luck…

If things were hectic for you and you didn’t have a chance to stop by this week, here’s what was happening here on homework.



Plus, I have a fantastic giveaway for a $500 Visa Gift Card and HP Chromebook. Enter the giveaway here.

………………………………………………

A huge thank you to all of you who stopped by this week, commented, emailed and shared your creativity on The Inspiration Board. You all make me smile and inspire me! And now for the projects in the spotlight this week.

The Inspiration Board: link party spotlight ~23~

 
Thank you to everyone who linked up a project on the Inspiration Board this week. Time now seems to be passing at warp speed with Thanksgiving around the corner and Christmas following soon after. Based on all the beautiful links it looks like many of you are prepared for the upcoming holidays.
 
Here are a few of the inspiring projects in the spotlight this week.
 
 
2011-10-25_20-37-48_921
I love this blessing dress by Jake and Baylee. The ruffles and flowers are just gorgeous. This was actually linked to last week’s inspiration board but it was the last link and I missed it when I was working on the features. That will teach me to not refresh my page.

Daring and death defying circus card by Sandy Ang. The bright colors and wonderful circus elephants are so fun.
  

owls multiple
Children’s art class owls by Elle and Lou. What a wonderful art assignment for her class of 10-year olds. I love the personality of each owl.

Missoni is all the rage, especially since Target began selling Missoni items. Inspiration Realisation shows us how to achieve the Missoni look with a zig zag or chevron pattern.

Beautiful and elegant ceiling stencil medallion by Debbie Doos. I can’t imagine working on a stencil on your ceiling. This takes stenciling to a new level (literally)! 

  Beautiful macarons by Hello Lovely. These little guys are double stuffed for extra yumminess. If you want to bake something extra special, visit Hello Lovely for the recipe.


yarntopes
Wonderful colors and fiber texture in these fall yarn topiaries by Crafts n Coffee. A great way to use up leftover yarn and embellishments.

I just love this anniversary gift by Ring Around the Rosies. Little heart map cutouts of personal places like; first home, best vacation and first “I love you”. A sweet, personal and sentimental gift.

The Inspiration Board: link party spotlight ~38~

Pin It


Another amazing week on the Inspiration Board. Thank you to everyone who linked up a project or came by to visit. There are so many link parties available and I’m so grateful to be on your party list. Have you noticed all the warm colors that are popping up and the glimpses of spring in the projects? I love this transition into spring.

Here are a few of the projects in the spotlight this week.



dsc06951
Pretty fabric scrap bracelets by Glimmer Snaps. These would look great with a tank top and sandals or a pretty sundress. I know we all can’t wait for warm weather and pretty accessories like these bracelets.


Features 381
Two great lamp transformations. 

{left} Imprintalish turns her lamp upside down and adds chicken wire for a fabulous hanging light fixture.
{right} Claiming our Space takes a freecycle lamp and transforms it into a designer look-a-like.


Chic Nest Moss Clay Pot 3
Spring is around the corner and the birds will soon be nesting. Alyssabeth starts the season off with this pretty moss covered clay pot nest.
  

IMG_0926
This tray was heading to the donation center but a moment of inspiration and a a coat (or two) of paint transformed it just in time. Nice save by Happy Canadian Home.


Tuna-can-turned-zinc-topper_thumb
In My Own Style creates a faux zinc candy jar top out of a tuna can. Amazing!  The glass knob completes the look and of course, makes digging into those candies a little easier.
 
 
bird-cage-makeover_2
A bright and cheery birdcage makeover by Ode to Inspiration. The aqua flowers, lace and bird give the new cage a sweet personal touch. 

 
scones_wtrmk
These cranberry scones by Live Laugh Rowe look so yummy. And the best part – they’re healthy and only four weight watcher points. I’m definitely going to make some of these. 

 
tulips in bark 2
While out walking, Design Megillah found beautiful pieces of birch bark that had fallen off a tree. What a great find! The bark creates a beautiful, natural vase for this pretty spring flowers. 


DSC_0003
What a great apron rack by Bringing Beauty. The vintage rolling pins are so unique and will be a great conversation piece when it hangs in their deli. 

 
DSC_0066
A sweet peanut themed baby shower by Homemaker on a Dime. The baby nicknamed “little peanut” was the inspiration for theme. A lot of pretty details like the painted peanuts, pretty cupcakes and diaper cake make this shower extra special.

The Inspiration Board: creative party spotlight ~136~

TGIF friends! Are things getting back to normal around your neck of woods? Holiday decorations packed away, kids back to school, pine needles and glitter vacuumed up? Okay – we all know that pine needles and glitter never get fully cleaned up, somehow they keeps magically reappearing all year.

I have a few more things to do and then the holidays season will be officially closed at my house. While I take down the Christmas cards and snack on holiday treats, enjoy the projects in the spotlight this week.

And if you didn’t get a chance to stop by this week, here is what I shared.

Happy Friday and welcome to The Inspiration Board Spotlight – the day that I get to feature your beautiful projects. Fall is definitely in the air. Here in Southern California, the temperature soared into the 90’s for a few days but then suddenly dropped and there is a definite chill in the air. Brrrrrr.

In case you didn’t get a chance to stop by this week, here is what I was up to.

The Inspiration Board: creative party spotlight ~137~

Happy Friday everyone and welcome to The Inspiration Board Spotlight! I love looking through all the linked up projects and featuring some of you in the Spotlight. Things are starting to get back to normal at Casa de Homework or at least not quite as out of control as during the holidays and the immediate post holiday frenzy. How about you? Are you starting 2014 caught up, organized and ready to take the year by storm? No… me neither but I should be ready by mid-year or so.

If you didn’t get a chance to stop by this week, here’s a little recap of what I shared.

Beautiful journals by Rook No. 17. You would never guess that these contemporary journals are made from old books. A great upcycle by Rook No. 17. 


Reindeer5
File this one away for next year. Adorable reindeer advent calendar by Sandy’s Space. Each reindeer has it’s own look and character {and a goodie inside}.

Super cute wine charms by Paper Vine. These are made from Vintage Vogue Spool Buttons and have such a great look to them. 


Picture 145
The Lazy Hobby Hopper whipped up this yummy looking lemon cake with Italian meringue frosting. It looks so light – I’m sure it would be harmless to have a piece or three. 

 
vanilla2
I spotlighted this project several months ago when Mrs. Happy Homemaker first whipped up her batch of homemade vanilla extract. I’m so glad she linked up the final product now that the vanilla is ready after three to six months storing time. A great gift idea – either make well in advance and gift ready-to-use vanilla or give with instructions on how to store the vanilla until it is ready to use.
