Happy Halloween everyone! Today’s project is a recycled soda bottle birdfeeder. And since today is Halloween, once you’re done with your pumpkins you can save the stems, dry them out and make a fun pumpkin birdfeeder to enjoy through fall.

The Inspiration Board: link party spotlight ~73~

 Are you ready for Halloween? I have a few last minute things to do but I’ll be ready by the time the little trick or treaters arrive at our door. I always wait to buy the candy until the last minute so that we don’t eat it all before Halloween. I also have to put out the spooky decorations, get more pumpkins and make a costume. OK, I confess, I’m not ready at all.

But I bet you are because you’ve been sharing all your wonderful creations on the Inspiration Board. Plus, all the beautiful fall ideas, wonderful recipes and more. Thank you to everyone who linked a project, stopped by to visit or left a comment. I truly appreciate each of you  Here are a few projects in the spotlight this week.

Celebrations: inspiration board halloween spotlight

Today I have a special edition of the spotlight to share with you. Halloween is almost here and this year the Halloween projects were so abundant and amazing that I compiled a round up of Halloween ideas. All of these projects were shared here on the Inspiration Board within the last few months. Please note, I started working on this treasury a few weeks ago so this round up doesn’t include projects from the last two link parties (sorry).

Thank you everyone for sharing your creativity. I hope you enjoy these fun Halloween ideas.

Good Taste: chocolate tea bag tags



Well, the weather was turning to fall and I thought some hot tea would be nice. But then we had a sudden last burst of summer. So let me start off this post with some advice – don’t make these chocolates on a hot day and try to take pictures of them next to a hot cup of tea. Both you and the chocolates will be melting before long.

The Inspiration Board: link party spotlight ~72~

Happy Friday and welcome to the Inspiration Board Spotlight. If you linked up a project this week, thank you so much for sharing. We’re having a late blast of hot summer weather here in Southern California so I am especially enjoying all the Fall and Halloween projects that I’m seeing. I’m also filing away all the cold weather recipes that you shared and wishing for cool fall weather. I hope wherever you are you’re enjoying the season.

In the meantime, as I patiently wait for fall, here are a few projects in the spotlight this week.



pincushionI love embroidery hoop projects and this embroidery hoop pin cushion by Yellow Spool is so pretty. What a great idea. You can hang it or lay it flat. Either way, it’s such a sweet place to house your pins.
