The Inspiration Board: link party spotlight ~24~

There’s no shortage of creativity this time of year. Thank you to everyone who linked up a project on the Inspiration Board this week. If you didn’t have a project to link but came by for a visit, I hope you enjoyed all the wonderful ideas. 

Here are a few in the spotlight this week.

It’s no secret that I love crafting with twigs and this twig vase by I Can’t Stop Crafting is right up my alley. The silver spray paint takes the twigs from rustic to rustic-chic.

Features 24_Collage tables
Table setting ideas with three unique and beautiful themes.

{middle} A Christmas tablescape by The Ivy Cottage. Votive candles and twinkle lights perfectly reflect the gorgeous reds and metallics. 

{right} Succulents and other details make this causal table setting by Style Baggage so inviting. The post also contains a handy cheat sheet on how to properly set a table. 

Palette projects are a big trend right now and I love the turquoise color of this palette shelf by Flea Market Trixie.

A super unique project by Artsy Fartsy Mama. A safety pin beaded bracelet. Hop over to the post to learn how to make one.

What can you say about shortbread. It is just so buttery good and you can see {and almost taste} the flaky goodness in this photo. Head over to The Lazy Hobby Hopper for the recipe.

Features 242
Advent calendar time is just around the corner and these are both great ideas.

{right} A magnetic box advent calendar by Lil Pink Pocket. Each box is filled with a note for a fun activity.

A sweet dress form ornament from Sandy's Space. Wouldn’t a tree filled with little dresses be adorable for little girl’s room? I love the paper clip hanger. 

A straw painting by Grow Creative. The colors in this painting are beautiful. A great way to create abstract artwork if you’re not steady with a paintbrush. Head over to Grow Creative for a tutorial and even a color wheel to help you choose colors that work together. 

Jenn at Rook No. 17 whips up the most beautiful {and I’m sure delicious) treats. Eggnog Fudge with Dark Chocolate Ganache is her latest inspiration. Head over to Rook No. 17 for Jenn’s original recipe.
