The Inspiration Board: creative party spotlight [104]

Happy Friday everyone! We had short week here in the United States and boy, do I wish we had another long weekend. It was nice to feel caught up and have a little down time last weekend but now I’m back running just to keep up. I see nothing slowed any of you down. There were so many gorgeous projects shared on The Inspiration Board this week. In case you didn’t have a chance to stop by, here’s what I shared here at homework.

Thank you so everyone who visited last week. I truly appreciate every link, comment and visit. Now on to the projects in the spotlight this week. 

lamp_flowers_cocalores_5A pretty paper lantern project by Cocalores. Such soft colors and the flowers look so pretty trailing up and around the lantern.

IMG_4148Thimbles Bobbins Paper and Ink made this wonderful Mint Chocolate Chip Cheesecake to celebrate with her husband. What a lucky guy! The chocolate crust and chocolate mint chips look so good.

DIY Tiered Kitchen Basket One www.vmg206.comTiered baskets are a great space saver and this diy kitchen basket by VMG206 is so fun. Chippy vintage wire baskets and fun numbers create a vintage look that’s so popular right now.

nursery23Stunning nursery reveal by Decorating Cents. Soft gray and white stripes are so soothing and pops of orange and blue add color to the subdued space. The rest of the room is equally charming.

DSC02589(2) dog tag tutorial smallSweet hand crafted dog tags by Whimsical Creations.  These polymer clay creations can be used anywhere. Gift tags, necklaces, ornaments and more.

pinkwaterlilymonetAn inspirational post by Atop Serenity Hill. Beautiful photos of A Walk through Monet’s Garden the New York Botanical Gardens. Each garden depicts a garden that Monet had at his home inspiring many of his paintings. Sensational.

Asparagus-with-Lemon-Dill-Sauce-6I’m beginning to love asparagus more and more so I’m definitely going to try Love Grows Wild’s Lemon Dill Sauce. It sounds like the perfect pairing for some fresh asparagus.

Smores-Ice-Cream-Cupcakes-RecipeA Pumpkin and a Princess bakes up the most mouth watering cupcakes and her photography really brings them to life. I mean this S’mores Ice Cream Cupcake is practically jumping off the screen at me (I wish)!

musicinspiredcraftroom3If It’s Not Baroque shared her unique music and fashion inspired office / craft room. I love the wall-to-wall chalkboard walls and eclectic collections and d├ęcor.

I think everyone needs a potting bench… even if you don’t have a garden. Design Dreams by Anne built her potting bench and I’m sure she’ll be putting it to good use in her beautiful garden.
