The Inspiration Board: link party [76]

Coil 9_thumb[2]

Welcome to the Inspiration Board link party. I'm so happy you could join me. We're just about mid-way through November and traveling at warp speed toward the holidays. I better get serious about my to-do list.

And while I continue to procrastinate about all the things I need to do, I'd love for you to distract me with your latest creativity.

Etceteras: martha stewart circle edge punch

Today I’m testing out a new crafting tool by Martha Stewart Crafts. It’s new and completely innovative – an edge punch that cuts a continuous die-cut circular border.

The Inspiration Board: link party spotlight ~75~

Happy Friday everyone. I hope you had a fantastic week filled with fun and creativity. Thank you to everyone who linked up a project on the Inspiration Board this week. There were so many beautiful projects and I loved relaxing with my coffee and checking them all out.

For those of us in the United States, we’re on the homestretch toward Thanksgiving. I can hardly wait for turkey, gravy, stuffing and best of all - pie!  Wishing you all a fantastic weekend and I hope to see you back here next week. Until then, enjoy these projects in the spotlight.

Fresh Look: my first roadside rescue {bookcase makeover}

Blog Bookshelf Makeover
First let me start by saying, I tip my hat to you ladies and gents that do these roadside rescues on a regular basis. I’ve seen your photos. I’ve read your tutorials. You grab the item at the side of the road. Bring it home. Sand it up, add some pretty chalk paint and show us your beautiful new piece of furniture.

Now I’m even more impressed with you diy rescuers because it’s a lot of work. There are creepy crawlies to deal with. Water damage. Ugly old stain that won’t go away. Storage issues and weather conditions to consider. I somehow muddled through all of those and finished my first roadside rescue.

Etceteras: dreaming of redecorating

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Havertys Furniture for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

Havertys 7I would love to redecorate my house. There are some areas that I’m satisfied with but overall there are so many things that need freshening and some areas that need a complete overhaul. If I did redecorate, I would love to go light and bright like this room from Havertys: Discover Something You.
