The Inspiration Board: Creative Party 156 Spotlight & Summer Gift Ideas

Hello friends and happy Friday! Did you have a good week? With the holiday on Monday and my son’s high school graduation yesterday, I don’t know if I’m coming or going. If you stopped by this week to visit or share I link, thank you so much! The link party was smaller this week {a more intimate gathering}, probably because of the holiday and all the end-of-school year events. But none the less, the projects were truly inspirational. If you didn’t have a chance to pop this week, here’s what I shared.

And now on to the projects featured in the spotlight this week.

SAM_9983Pavlova with Kiwi Lime and Curd by Twigg Studios. An absolutely stunning dish and so beautifully presented and photographed. I’m mesmerized by this photo. Oh, and I’m sure it’s delicious.

hotinherre1Persia Lou brings on summer with this It’s Getting Hot in Here printable. Hop over to grab the free printable on her blog. I’m thinking about hanging it in my kitchen which tends to heat up when I cook.

 The Learner Observer makes over this lamp and end table with paint and contact paper. I love the faux marble effect of the table.

 Over the Apple Tree shares this unique teacher gift. You Rock Crocheted Rocks. The delicate crochet makes each rock so special and perfect to use as a paperweight.

DIY Wood Branch Coasters by I Gotta Create bottle
I never get tired of wood, twig and branch projects. These wood slice coaster by I Gotta Create are gorgeous.

Oh My Creative brings on the red, white and blue with these patriotic popsicles. Cool and refreshing and filled with watermelon and blueberries. Yum!

Crafty Chic created this Bendi Card with a map and nautical theme for Father’s Day.I love the interesting curve of the card that works as an ocean wave.

Beautiful organza bridal flower clips by One Perfect Day. Pretty organza, vintage lace, pearls and rhinestones would make any bride feel beautiful.

Desk-TransformationThe DIY Dreamer gave this desk and chair a makeover in the prettiest shade of pink. So perfect for a little girls’ room.
