The Inspiration Board: Creative Party 155 Spotlight & Freshen Up Inspiration

Happy Friday friends! We crafted, baked, diyed, decored, baked and sewed through another week. It’s that crazy end-of-school-year time of year when kids go bonkers, parents are exhausted and there are still a million things to do. I’m especially grateful to all of you for visiting here at homework because I know everyone is super busy. If your schedule got the best of you, and you didn’t have a chance to stop by this week, here’s what I shared.

This week on homework :

Enjoy the weekend everyone and enjoy these projects in the spotlight this week.

finished-on-an-angleBaked eggs in celery herb cream by Army Wife to Suburban Life. Two words… yes please!

Final-Fireplace-2I Think We Could Be Friends updated a their fireplace surround with palette wood. The new fireplace looks beautiful with the cushy leather furniture.

candle-holder-succulentsA great repurpose project by Cherished Bliss. A candle holder to succulent planter. What a fresh take on a candle holder that you’re not using anymore.

IMG_1221Adorable laundry play set by Little Red Window. It reminds me of paper dolls but with a fun, fresh look. I love the little laundry basket that holds all the clothes.

IMGP7806-copy1I’ve been trying to cut back and lose a few pounds so these Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Truffles by Dixie Chik Cooks look even more tempting to me. Yum!

img_0494House of Bennetts share a beautiful Coffee Table Tray and I couldn’t resist picking this picture to feature. How adorable is the big guy in the background.

Lettuce-hem-010If you sew this is a great tutorial to bookmark. So Sew Easy shows us how to create a lettuce edge hem. I’ve always loved these ruffled or lettuce-edged hems. It gives a piece of clothing such a cute and finished look.

Dye-Art-Projects-For-Kids-KABAnother great project for kids from Kids Activities Blog. Easy dyed art using coffee paper filters, pens and water. A great summer craft project for kids.

WP_001958.jpg.opt564x752o0,0s564x752The Happy Creations shares these budget-friendly wedding centerpieces that she’s making for her friend’s wedding. Wedding season is upon us and I always enjoy seeing what everyone is creating for that special day.
