The Inspiration Board: Spotlight 212 & Refreshing Happy Hour Ideas

Well, here we are in the last week of June. Has everyone adjusted to summer vacation? We’ve got moms with little ones, moms with kids returning home from college and everything in between. Summer is great but it’s definitely an adjustment from the regular structured routine. My empty nest won’t be empty in September since my college son decided to move back home. He’ll be attending a local college, so you won’t see any amazing posts about converting his room into a craft room just yet.

I big thank you to everyone who stopped by last week. Sending you all virtual hugs! In case you missed anything, here’s a little recap of what I’ve been sharing.

And now for the projects featured this week:


IMG_3291Life Love Larson shared a Summer Home Tour and this splash of bold color is delightful. What a beautiful home.

12_Sadie_Seasongoods_thrifted_placemat_garden_gatherer (1)I love this brilliant placemat to garden gatherer by Sadie Seasongoods. Easier to store and carry than a wicker basket.

Cookies-and-Cream-Slice-with-text-1Oh man… Treat Yourself Sweeter is tempting me with these No Bake Cookies and Cream slices. I may need to make these very soon.

Kitchen-Literary-Printables-Inside-the-Fox-DenFun Kitchen Printables all from some of my favorite books by Inside the Fox Den.

may 2015 012_zps4azdrxrbSeriously, I didn’t mean to post an egg feature right after the baby duck feature. Sorry! But this Loaded Has with Perfectly Poached Eggs by Everyday Made Fresh looks amazing. I haven’t had has in years and it’s time get reacquainted.

IMG_2951_hf_hf_hfMoois Van Me shares a tutorial to make these gorgeous crocheted lantern holders. Simply lovely.

CompletedWhen an adorable granddaughter asks grandma to make her a dress, what’s a grandmother to do? T-Shirt to Pillowcase cress by Sew Travel Inspired.

TwineCans1Frugelegance made these rope wrapped cans and they’re perfect for the outdoor season. This makes me want to wrap all my planters in rope.

downloadI’m always amazed when diyers make lights. Switches and wires aren’t in my craft stash and I’m in awe. This Insulator Pendant Light by Pocketful of Posies is sensational.
