The Inspiration Board: Creative Party Spotlight ~153~

Happy Friday everyone. I hope you had a wonderful week, filled with pretty things and peaceful moments. If your week was busy and peaceful moments were far and few between, I hope the weekend brings rest and relaxation. Thank you so much to everyone that stopped by this week and left comments. I huge thank you to those of you who shared projects on The Inspiration Board. If you didn’t get a chance to visit this week, here is what I shared.

Now for the projects in the spotlight this week.

acc5496cf4dc7d2ff6a6ddb5e752d633Wedding Bee via Tip Junkie shared beautiful chair back ideas to make your party extra special. I love this idea to use up pretty fabric and tie it all together with a gorgeous flower.

DSCN9831_zps9b8587aeIvalex created these beautiful chiffon floral bud earrings with gold wire wrapping. So unique and fit for a princess.

hexagonsHexagons are so intriguing. The way they fit together and create a pattern or trail. Paper Seedlings styled up a plain album with some hexes punched out of pretty paper. I think I definitely need a hex punch.

Old-T-Shirt-Shag-Rug-logoThis rag shag rug by 3 Peppers is amazing. It’s made completely out of old t-shirts. Each strip is knotted in a rubber gripper mat. I definitely want to make one for my bathroom. I better start saving t-shirts!

IMG_1530aI love the simplicity of this classic A-line spring dress by Peaches and Bees. The soft colors and clean line are the perfect pattern for the beautiful floral yoke on the dress. Beautiful, simple and classy.

sugar champagneJacolyn Murphy shows us how to make flavored sugar for Mother’s Day. You can sprinkle it on pastries, use it on toast, or raise an orange sugar rimmed glass of champagne. Cheers!

21-queen-princess-cake-pops-queens-gather-hooplapaloozaHoopla Palooza always brings fun and a story into her craft making. These Queen and Princess Cake Pops are delightful. The crowns, heart shaped mouths and overall expression are wonderful.

Desk-Area-Reveal-CBHomey Oh My always impresses with her beautiful d├ęcor projects. I would expect nothing less than this gorgeous work space reveal from her. It reflects her style and creativity to a T.

With spring gardens starting to take off, it won’t be long before we’re all enjoying the fruits of our labor (or at least our friends and neighbor’s labor). I can’t wait for fresh home grown veggies. Here are some great recipes to Pin.
