ETCETERAS: Felt & White Birch Mushrooms

Felt & White Birch Mushrooms via homework (1)There’s something about mushrooms that are irresistible to me. Besides of course eating them, I love the look of mushrooms in fairy gardens and woodland décor.

Extra Credit: Celebrating Everyday Life with Jennifer Carroll

SeptOct2013COVERI’ve mentioned a few times recently that I was having a hard time getting motivated to decorate for fall. But after pouring through the fall edition of Celebrating Everyday Life with Jennifer Carroll I am ready to jump in. Here are just a few of the images from the pages of this beautiful digital magazine.

The Inspiration Board: creative party [119]

Welcome to The Inspiration Board Creative Party. If you're new here, I'm so happy that you have found my little corner of the creative world. For those of you who come back week after week, you know that I consider you part of the homework family! I'm so appreciative.

So? Are we in full fall mode or are you hanging on to the last few weeks of summer? I've stopped dragging my feet and started on some fall projects. I haven't had time to take down all the summer decor so right now shells, starfish and aqua knick knacks are still hanging around. But they will soon be replaced with all the beautiful colors of fall.

Now on to the creative party. I can't wait to see what you've been working on.

ETCETERAS: Stash Buster Fall Wreath

Stash Buster Fall Wreath via homework (6)I’ve been dragging my feet about fall décor in my house but when it’s sweltering outside and you have no air conditioning (uh, we live by the coast), it’s hard to wrap your head around pies baking in the oven, pumpkins and fall foliage. One of the things on my list was to go to the craft store and pick up some supplies for a fall wreath. I had a few ideas in mind but as I continued to drag my feet about running this errand, I started digging through my seasonal floral supply box.

CELEBRATIONS: Seasons–Fall color Inspiration

Fall 6Now that Labor Day is behind us, I should be in full fall mode. The problem is – it’s hot! This happens every year. We live near the coast and it usually doesn’t really feel like summer until late August through October. In order to get myself excited for fall, I usually put together an inspiration board or idea book.
I dug through my seasonal craft supplies and cupboards to pull together some items that will hopefully get me moving on fall décor and thought I’d share my mood boards with you.

Fresh Look: Embellished Wood Boxes {homemade gifts}

Embellished Wood Box via homework (9)I’m having lunch with three friends next week. I used to work with them when I used to get dressed, carry a brief case and drive to the office. We’ve all left the corporate world for one reason or another and supported each other in our various new ventures.

The Inspiration Board: creative party [118]

Gold 1[4]From my archives | gold pumpkins

Happy September everyone. If you live in the U.S. I hope you had a wonderful three day weekend. For many people, summer is bookended by Memorial Day and Labor Day. So if you go by those dates, summer is over and fall has begun. However, where I live, it only got hot this past week. We've been cruising along with very mild weather and then bam - it got hot. So I don't know whether to keep my summer decor up or jump into fall.

How about you? Are you doing fall creating, baking, cooking and decorating? I can't wait to see. All types of inspirational projects are welcome here... crafts, decor, recipes, gardening, diy, photography or even an inspiring story. If you're new to homework, I want to welcome you to my little corner of the creative world. Thank you so much for joining me here today.

Now on to the creative party. I can't wait to see what you've been working on.

ETCETERAS: Ribbon Memo Board {oh boy}

Ribbon TitleI recently guest posted over at The Ribbon Retreat and shared this fun Teen Boy Memo Board for their Oh Boy series. Since you usually don’t associate ribbon with teen boys it was a fun and challenging project to create.
