The Inspiration Board: creative party spotlight ~106~

Happy Friday friends! It’s been another fun week here on homework. Thank you to all of you who stopped by, left a comment and shared your creativity. I truly appreciate each and everyone of you. In case you didn’t get a chance to pop on over, here’s what I shared this week.

Wishing you all a wonderful weekend, filled with fun and creativity!

Now on to the projects in the spotlight this week.

IMG_7824bClever Nest shares her wonderful plate wall arrangement and shows us how to arrange and hang plates. I’m going to go through all my plates and try to make a pretty arrangement like this.

DSCN7762_zps2dfa2248I love a good upcycling / recycling project. These pretty earring are made out of plastic bottles. Ivalex patiently punched colorful plastic bottle to make several flat beads and the results are so pretty.

Lots O Love 1Another incredible paper project by Sandy’s Space. Two sheets of paper are cleverly pieced together to create a stunning sunburst pattern with perfectly placed embellishments and pretty stitching. Paper perfection!

How-to-age-new-hardware-9A great tutorial on how to age shiny new hardware by Love Grows Wild. This is the type of detail that gives a rustic, chippy, vintage project that you’ve worked so hard on that finishing touch.

IMAG1902-001I would love to spend a day at Penny’s Treasures. She always has something new in her sunroom or garden. Today she is sharing her potting shed in the rear of this photo but what caught my eye is the bike painted white. Fantastic!

casadapaulina6Casadapaulina shares a beautiful wedding table. Pretty baby’s breath, pale pink and treats wrapped in tulle. So soft and romantic.

zucchini breadIt’s summer and I can use some low-calorie recipes. This chocolate chip zucchini bread by Linley House would be perfect for breakfast or an afternoon snack with coffee.

passionshake.blogspot.1Another one of my favorite craft supplies – the humble tin can! Passion Shake gives this can a pretty makeover with pink paint and decoupage. So pretty in pink.

chinaThis globe project by Persia Lou is just delightful. A perfect addition to a child’s room with It’s a Small World images traveling the globe.

Crocodile Finished1 022Oh my – look how tiny these are. Darling baby sandals in the colors of the rainbow by Crochet Dreamz.

deer silhouette 1Deer wall art is very popular right now and Just a Little Creativity has used a thrift store frame to showcase her painted deer art.
