The Inspiration Board: creative party spotlight ~134~

Has everyone recovered from the hustle and bustle of Christmas? I think I need a few more days…  I went ahead and hosted the Inspiration Board link party this week even though it fell on Christmas Eve and I was so happy that so many people came by and shared projects. Thank you to everyone who took the time to swing by during this busy week.

If you didn’t have a chance to stop by, here’s what I shared here at homework.
