THE INSPIRATION BOARD: creative party spotlight ~131~

Baby it’s cold outside! Well, some of you may be laughing at me because here in Southern California it’s about 60 degrees in the day and in the forties at night. But for me that’s bone-chilling cold! And now that the weather has officially turned into winter I really feel like it’s the holidays and can get into the spirit of things. If you didn’t get a chance to stop by this week, here is what I shared.

Now on to the projects in the spotlight this week. There were so many beautiful and inspiration projects linked up this week. It’s always hard to pick which projects to feature and this week was even harder. Thank you to everyone who visited, commented and shared a project this week.

Shaken Together Life shared a mini holiday home tour including this darling cookies for Santa nook.

I really need to find out where Twigg Studios lives and show up on her doorstep one day. Another amazing confection and one of my favorites- a Tiramisu Cake.

Casa da Paulina has concocted these beautiful soaps that include extra virgin olive oil, coconut oil, palm oil, shea butter, cocoa butter, almond oil, castor oil, vitamin E and essential oil and palmarosa.

This Anthropologie inspired wool wreath by View from the Fridge is charming and I like even better than the Anthro original. I love the clean white look which can be used throughout the year.

Hungry Happenings had me at Coconut Macaroon Cups and then sealed the deal with blueberry curd. Mmmmm.

I love this wreath by the Learner Observer too! The white and neutral pom poms on a burlap wrapped wreath are festive and versatile. I’m going to dig through my yarn stash and start thinking about a pom pom wreath.

Have you tried quinoa? I’ve done a few posts using quinoa and it’s so good. This Pomegranate Quinoa Salad by Over the Apple Tree is brimming with super foods and looks so good.

Passion Shake shares some beautiful Jasmine Soap with Himalayan Salt. Doesn’t it just sound dreamy and oh so exotic and luxurious?

Lots of great flavors are combined in this Banana Nutella Cheesecake by Because I Like Chocolate. The crust is a banana and oat mixture and the filling is a cream cheese Nutella swirl. Yum!

Gift cards are a great go-to gift any time of the year and these Felt and Button gift card holders by Sweet Bee Buzzings are perfect. A great way to make a gift card extra special.

Life & Home at 2102 has a beautiful home. I’ve featured her house before but now we get to see it all dressed up for Christmas with a beautiful tree, garlands and stockings.
