The Inspiration Board: Spotlight 245 & Pretty Please

Hello friends! Today is a holiday in the U.S. and thank goodness for the 3-day weekend. I got back in town Friday night and came home to a very messy house. The boys did their best – sort of – but their idea of picking up and keeping things clean are a far cry from mine. My son’s room looked and smelled like a gym locker room and the rest of the house was pretty bad too. I was not happy and on Saturday, I had all hands on deck cleaning and sanitizing the house. After cleaning, I sat down with my cup of coffee to stroll through the link ups from The Inspiration Board. Thank goodness for you guys because I was instantly transported to your homes, kitchens and craft rooms and all was well in my world again.

So enjoy these wonderful inspirational ideas featured from The Inspiration Board.
