Pin It
Another wonderful week on The Inspiration Board. Thank you so much for stopping by, commenting, linking and partying with me. I truly appreciate it. Wow, everyone has been creating, decorating, baking, cooking, gardening and DIYing like crazy.

There were so many wonderful projects to look at. Here are a few projects in the spotlight this week. 

Buttons 2 -This project is so cute and this photo just makes me happy. Bright and cheery handmade buttons by Made with Love.

uncsam1Sugar Swings wows us with these darling Uncle Sam cupcakes. Hop on over to Sugar Swings and learn how to make these just in time for the Fourth of July.

pattis quilt finished 006I love the design and sentiment on this memory banner quilt by Oxford Impressions. Little birds perched on bunting using precious fabric from clothing.

diy-citrus-salt-scrubSmall Home Love made Citrus Salt Scrubs for Mother’s Day Gifts. The packaging is wonderful. Head on over for the downloadable labels and tags.

IMG_1244Design, Dining and Diapers brings us a berrylicious dessert using a gluten-free baking mix. This looks like a great summer dessert option.

IMG_3692aOkay - you guys need to stop showing me these gorgeous kitchen reveals. It’s making me realize more and more all the work that I need to do on my kitchen. Home is Where my Heart Is takes us step by step through her kitchen transformation. Amazing!

IMG_1624My Passion for D├ęcor turned a plain old dresser into a pretty focal point with things I love – pool blue paint, cherry blossoms and crystal knobs.

DSC_0082Seaside Shelter took advantage of a rainy day and painted her bathroom in a pretty striped pattern. Note to self: after finishing the kitchen I need to paint my bathroom {see kitchen reveal above}.

banana muffins_thumbCity Girl Gone Coastal brings us these Banana Muffins made by her husband. I’m so impressed! She had to pester him for the recipe but lucky for us she wrangled it out of him.

handmade notebook 4-horz-vertA stunning handmade notebook by Meeha Meeha. Pretty mint and turquoise paper and an upcycled skirt for the cover fabric. I’m just in love with this notebook. Bravo Meeha!
