The Inspiration Board: Spotlight 237 & Eggnog Recipes

Well, here we are friends. Ready or not, it’s Christmas week. I had a marathon wrapping weekend and I worked on our Christmas cards. This is the first year in probably 20 years that I didn’t make our Christmas cards. I ordered them and apparently I didn’t allow enough time so I just received the box and was furiously addressing and stamping. I knew it would be a mad dash to the finish line but this year I really pushed it. I hope you had a nice weekend and could enjoy the season. In case you’ve missed anything here on the blog, here’s a little snapshot of what I’ve been sharing.

A huge thank you to all of you who stopped by, commented or linked up to the party last week. It was another amazing week of fantastic inspiration. So without further ado, here are the project featured this week.

Homemade Gumdrops by Hoosier Homemade. Don’t these look wonderful and colorful. I love gummy candy so these are right up my alley.

Bottle Brush Trees and a Vintage Tart Tin make for a wonderful centerpiece by Dagmar’s Home.

Cookie Dough and Oven Mitt whipped up this perfect Peppermint Oreo Crunch Cake. Looks heavenly!

Baby it’s cold outside! Premeditated Leftovers spices things up with Mexican Hot Cocoa.

Bath Salts in glass ornaments is cute enough. Add these darling printable tags by Shaken Together and it’s perfect.

Making it in the Mountains adds simple beauty to her door with this Hoop Christmas Wreath.
This looks like the perfect drink to toast the season. 

Cranberry Pomegranate Sparkler by As the Bunny Hops.

Designthusiasm calls this holiday mantel “casual elegance”. I call it breath taking!

The Heathered Nest takes us on a holiday home tour including the guest room where I want to stay.

Petticoat Junktion creates a Christmas Tree from her stash of rusty hardware. I would love to have a stash of rusty bits and pieces to create and craft with.

Whistle & Ivy shows us how to keep our arms warm with these cute crocheted arm warmers.
