FROM MY ARCHIVES  :  Easy Glitter Ornament Tags

Welcome to The Inspiration Board link party everyone. I’ve been solo hosting this link party for 5-1/2 years and love waking up every Tuesday to all the link ups. It’s been equally as fun selecting the features and I’m proud to say I’ve never missed a features post. I carefully select the projects to be featured based on what I like and what I think all of you will be interested in seeing.

FRIDAY: High Five

Holiday Beauty Gifts and Friday High Five
Happy Friday everyone. If you’re here in the United States, I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving, filled with family and feasting. I’m blessed to have my family here in Los Angeles where we can spend holidays together. We all make two or three dishes and still follow tradition and gather at my parent’s house. How lucky am I?

So on this day after Thanksgiving, let’s give thanks for a wonderful week and maybe do a little shopping. Here’s what I’m high fiving about this week.

DRESS CODE: Business Travel Fall Wardrobe

What I Wore for a week of business travelI left sunny and warm Southern California at the crack of dawn a a few weeks ago for my usual week of business travel to the beautiful Pacific Northwest. It’s always a little challenging packing for a week of work especially when you can’t wrap your head around the fact that it’s going to be cold. I made some good choices and once again learned a thing or two about packing for the week. Here’s what I wore.

UPCYCLING: Faux Galvanized Metal Box

Faux Galvanized Finish with Tin Foil via homework | carolynshomework Here is Southern California, or at least in my city, there’s a plastic bag ban. That’s fine. I’m all for eliminating those plastic bags. But if I want a paper bag when I go to the grocery store, I have to pay for it. In other words, it’s BYOB or Bring Your Own Bag. I miss my brown paper grocery bags. I used them for everything. Covering books, crafting, and putting recycling in.

THE INSPIRATION BOARD: Spotlight 284 | Pink and Green

The Inspiration Board Features 284
Are you ready for some inspiration? Today’s features represent this time of year when there’s so much is going on. Fall, Thanksgiving and the holiday season. It’s hard to focus on one thing when you’re hearing holiday music on the radio and you haven’t even thrown out your pumpkins yet. Plus, in my neck of the woods, it’s still 80 degrees so I’m really confused. Enjoy the features and if you haven’t had a chance to pop by lately, here’s a little recap of what I’ve been sharing.

GOOD TASTE: Pantry Buster Homemade Granola

Pantry Buster Homemade GranolaThe other day as I stared into my pantry looking for something to snack on, I realized I had steel cut oats, some cereal that no one was going to finish, and some peanuts and chocolate. I could eat the chocolate and call it a day or whip up some granola.

Hello, hello friends. Here in the U.S. it’s Election Day. I don’t make any political statements on my blog or on social media but this year’s election has been pretty crazy.

So without further ado, welcome to The Inspiration Board Creative Party. Whether you’re here to be inspired or to inspire, I’m so happy you stopped by and always grateful for your sweet comments.

THE INSPIRATION BOARD: Spotlight 283 | De-Stress

Welcome back and welcome to The Inspiration Board Spotlight. I hope you had a great weekend. We did the Fall Back thing and started Daylight Savings. It’s so confusing. Plus, this morning I headed to the airport at 4:30 a.m. for a week of business travel. I’ll land before noon and head straight to the office for meetings. So while I guzzle coffee and try to stay alert through my meetings, I hope you can sit back with a cup of coffee and enjoy the beautiful projects featured this week.
