The Inspiration Board: Creative Party Spotlight 217 & Energy Snacks

Hello, hello everyone! It’s a brand new week and I can’t believe I’m saying this, but it’s August. The summer is flying by at warp speed. So if things were moving a little too fast for you last week and you didn’t have a chance to stop by, here’s what I’ve been sharing.

A huge thank you to all of you who visited last week and shared your projects on The Inspiration Board. I can’t tell you how happy it makes me that you share here. So without further ado, here are the projects in the Spotlight this week.

florence the blue and yellow toile chair
An absolutely beautiful chair makeover by Redo It Yourself Inspirations. The blue paint and yellow toile fabric are stunning.

I love this back to school covered notebook clutch by Just JP. It holds a notebook, pens and has a secret compartment for feminine supplies. Perfect for a tween or teen heading back to school.

Beautiful beaded bracelet by Moois Van Me. The beads replicate the colors of coral and turquoise – my favorites.

Olives N Okra shares these Chocolate Cocoa Peanut Butter Cookies and man, do they look heavenly.

shabby chic baby clothes hangers
A great scrap buster project by Sew Traveled Inspired. Cover cheap plastic hangers with strips of fabric. They look cute and your clothes don’t slip off.

shortbread cookie 4-2
This shortbread by Simply Suzannes look out of this world. Shortbread is one of those things that I can’t resist. That melt in your buttery goodness is hard to beat.

Where the Smiles Have Been took some plain Ikea cork trivets and customized them with a burning tool. Darling and functional!

Ivy and Elephants displayed her ironstone collection on this fantastic old ladder. I’m thinking about hauling our old ladder inside. I wonder what the hubs would say.

Toasted Marshmallow Peanut Butter Milkshake by Honey and Birch. All I can say is WOW!

Smitha Katti shares a tutorial on how to make this pretty stenciled tote bag. A great way to jazz up a plain old tote.


Dried Cranberries by Little House Living  :  Candied Pecans by One Little Project  :  Blueberry Coconut Almond Bark by Treat Yourself Sweeter
