The Inspiration Board: creative party spotlight ~128~

TGIF friends! We crafted, decorated, baked, cooked and diyed through another week. Oh my!

This time of year there just doesn’t seem to be enough hours in the day to accomplish everything. But by the looks of The Inspiration Board this week, you all have been very busy and VERY creative. A reader let me know that she had never clicked on so many links at a link party before and I have to agree – the projects were amazing! So thank you so much for sharing and visiting.

In case you didn’t have a chance to stop by this week, here is what I shared here on homework.


Now, on to those amazing projects in the spotlight this week.
