The Inspiration Board: creative party spotlight ~142~

Has anyone else noticed that February is almost over? This school year is going by so quickly. It’s my son’s high school senior year and it’s definitely whizzing by way too fast. He’ll be off to college before I know it. Sniff, sniff. For all you new moms out there, I know it’s cliché, but it goes by so quickly.

Thank you everyone for stopping by this week and sharing your amazing talent here at homework. I truly appreciate every visit, comment and shared link. If you didn’t have a chance to stop in this week, here’s what I shared.
