The Inspiration Board: link party spotlight ~78~

It’s Friday! The last Friday of the month and the last day of November. It’s “holiday go” time!  I’ve made some progress on my holiday lists but I still have a long way to go.

Thank you to everyone who linked up a project on the Inspiration Board this week. I know it’s a crazy, busy time and I so appreciate you taking the time to stop by, share a project, leave a comment or just visit  I’m filing away ideas, tips and recipes from all your wonderful creativity. Thank you so much for sharing.

Here are some of the inspiring projects in the spotlight this week.

Gilded-Pears-ModPodge-@Cupcakes-and-Crinoline-4Pears are really popular right now and so is metallic. Cupcakes and Crinoline combined the two to make these stunning faux gilded pears. A beautiful centerpiece that makes a holiday statement.

Features 78-001Red or green. Green or red. I can’t decide. I need to try both. Candy Cane Cookie Truffles by Ode to Inspiration and Oreo Mint Cookie Balls by Southern Mom Cooks.

faux-molding-60How fun is this? A painted headboard on a wall by Interiors by Kenz. Click over for step by step instructions on how to achieve this look.

I love using nature in crafts and this Sharpie outlined leaf by Grow Creative is fascinating. The natural colors of the leaf our outlined in Sharpie to create an amazing pattern. I can’t wait to try this. I think older kids would enjoy this project too.

elderberry1-1It’s definitely cold and flu season. Even with obsessive hand washing and prevention, the bug can hit you. Vanessa’s Values shows us how to make an immune boosting syrup using Elderberries that are also loaded with vitamins.

123Homespun with Love makes me fall in love with red again with a fresh and clean mantel look. I love all the new holiday colors -  pink, turquoise, gold and mint green but this classic red and white mantel really feels merry!

AshbeeDesignLaceTrees2Beautiful Silhouette lacy trees by Ashbee Design. This is one of the most intricate Silhouette projects I’ve seen. The paper was cut out and then stitched together to form the 3 dimensional trees. Amazing!
