The Inspiration Board: link party spotlight ~88~

Happy Friday everyone! I hope you all had a wonderful and creative week. From the projects shared on The Inspiration Board, it looks like many of you have been very busy. The board was brimming with love this week. There were so many wonderful Valentine’s Day projects and treats linked up – I have tons of ideas filed away for next year.

A big thank you for sharing your projects, stopping by, commenting and following along. In case you didn’t get a chance to stop by lately, here’s what I shared this week.

And here are the projects in the spotlight this week. Enjoy!


double-fingerprint-necklace-tutorial-003_zpsf27de493I’ve seen several variations of fingerprint projects lately, but this Double Fingerprint Heart Necklace by Raegun Ramblings is my favorite. So many fun possibilities with the fingerprints – his & hers, kids, bffs and so on.

blueberry pie, blueberry tart, blueberry heart tart, pie filling recipeThis Mini Blueberry Pie Tart by Hungry Happenings just makes me happy. It looks fruitilicious and that bright pink sugar is a childhood favorite of mine.

Valentine-Idea-Twig-Heart-4You know I have a soft spot for twigs and anything twig related. These Twig Hearts by Ashbee Designs are right up my alley.

igottacreate_clothespin_love_arrow_tuck_feathersLove these clothespin arrows by I Gotta Create. Clothespins, stamps, twine and feathers – a lot of craft supply favorites combined to make the cutest clothespins ever.

Ornament Vase - CoverYou’ll never guess what this bubble vase by Bliss Bloom Blog is made from. A glass ornament! So if you just packed up your Christmas ornaments, dig them out if you have clear glass ornaments and make some of these brilliant bubble vases. I know I’m going to!
