The Inspiration Board: link party spotlight ~80~

Happy Friday friends! I’m so happy you stopped by to see all the beautiful projects in the spotlight today. The Inspiration Board was brimming with glitter, evergreen, lights, and wonderful confections. Thank you to everyone who shared their wonderful projects. As always, I was so inspired by your creativity. Here are a few in the spotlight today.

BW-fudgeB-tallBlack and white fudge from Jen’s Favorite Cookies. Fudge is such a holiday tradition and this black and white version is so elegant. A fantastic homemade gift or a touch of class for a holiday buffet.

No-Sew-Velvet-Snowman-1024x795Ode to Inspiration shows us how to make these darling “no sew” snowmen. I love the use of an old sweater sleeve as the hat and the jute eyes and nose. Super cute!

tirimasuHeather’s French Press shares tiramisu pudding and it looks heavenly. I love the old fashioned fountain glasses and the thick layer of mascarpone and dusting of cocoa powder.

3384602How about some “Sleepy Potion” Hot Cocoa by Crystelle Boutique. A fun treat to have any night but the {wink} sleepy potion might get the little ones to sleep while waiting for Santa on Christmas Eve.

Tree3The Single Nester shares her beautiful turquoise, white and silver Christmas décor. The color scheme is stunning. This is just one tiny snippet of all the beautiful pictures of her amazing holiday decor. Click over for the entire story.

SantamainCheck out these adorable Red Velvet Santa Cupcakes by Sugar Swings. The little Santa faces are so sweet and I love the chocolate kiss trees. Fantastic!

dinning-room-301-680x1024Creatively Living takes us on a house tour of her stunning holiday décor. Each room is spectacular. I don’t know what else to say but click over and take the tour.

chocolate candy cane cheesecake watermarked1Cheesecake… chocolate… peppermint… bites…  oh my! Lilikoi Joy tempts us with these Chocolate Cheesecake Peppermint Bites and do they look delicious. The recipe can be made in an 8x8 pan and cut into bars or you can kick them up a notch and make them in round mini cheesecake pans like Lilikoi Joy did.

christmas garlandLive Love DIY made these beautiful beaded snowflakes – twenty of them - and strung them as a garland. She originally saw them hanging as décor in a store and stopped to draw a diagram so she could make her own. Yes, we all do things like that for the greater good of crafting, diy and décor!
