The Inspiration Board: link party spotlight ~95~

Happy Friday everyone! It’s been a whirlwind of a week but we made through – phew! A big thank you to everyone who stopped by this week. I so appreciate your visits, comments and shared creativity.

Blog Spring Flowers KariIn case you didn’t get a chance to stop by, here’s what I shared this week. Left: paper mache confetti bowl and cups |  Middle: Budget-friendly floral arrangements |  Right:  Spring decorating

And, from The Inspiration Board this week, here are the projects in the spotlight.

Reeses-Ice-Cream-Cupcakes-RecipeAnother out-of-the-ballpark cupcake by A Pumpkin and a Princess. These Reese’s Ice Cream Cupcakes look light and decadent at the same time. Beautiful photography as always. Bravo!

P1030331_SnapseedMust Have Wear scored on Ebay with this classic Ole Wansher rocking chair. Although in sad shape, she sanded, stained and restored it to a beautiful piece. New cushions and sweet pillows complete the look for their nursery.

You know when you buy something you don’t know what you’re going to do with but then inspiration strikes. This was the case with Design Dreams by Anne. Dollar tea towels have been transformed into pillow cases and curtains. Love them!

menu lrgI love pretty organization. I menu plan for the week too but this Weekly Menu Board by Life a Little Brighter is so fantastic. Fresh dinner ideas are in the top box and meals you just made go in the bottom box. What a great system!

knit monster7webOh my stars… these Knit Monsters by Our Everyday Art are darling. A mama and baby monster just waiting to be cuddled. And the best part – the baby fits in mama’s pocket.

img_1721Hey Little Mother dressed up these dollar birdhouses with paint and unique roofs. Pinecone shingles, moss and fabric will have the birds visiting in no time!

FHN_Post20130326-31One of the most incredible projects I’ve ever seen. French Happy Nest shares her beautiful papercut work. This is just one of the examples shared on her blog. The designs are hand cut with an Xacto knife to mimic the look of lace. Stunning!

No Sew Easter Baskets 13Max and Me had me at “no-sew”. Darling Bunny Tail Easter baskets just ready to be filled with goodies. Those pompom cotton tails are too cute!

DSC_0007Speaking of pompoms, I love these Easter cups and the face planted bunnies by Calma Que Estou Com Pressa. Good thing Easter is almost here because these naughty bunnies are getting into the treats.

Bunny Slipper Cookies, pink slipper cookies, Nutter Butter Bunnies, Easter cookies, Easter cookie recipe copyRaise your hand if you ever owned a pair of pink fuzzy slippers! Hungry Happenings pays homage to all us pink slipper girls with these Easter Bunny Pink Fuzzy Slipper Cookies. Just so cute!
