The Inspiration Board: Spotlight 239 & Soup’s On

Hello friends and happy new year!! I’m so excited to start another year here at homework. This little blog has been chugging along since 2010 and I’m so grateful to all of you who stop by and keep me going. I loved going through the links on The Inspiration Board and picking out some projects to kick off the new year.

Before we get to the features, here’s a little recap of what I’ve been sharing.

And now, for the projects in the spotlight this week.
