The Inspiration Board: creative party spotlight ~112~

Happy Friday everyone! It was another fun and creative week here on homework. I thought I was going to be on jury duty starting next week but I postponed it for a few weeks because of other family commitments. I had prepared some fun round up posts in case I got on a jury and I’ll be sprinkling them in here and there. I hope you enjoy them. How about you? Do you have more time to be creative in the summer or less time because of other commitments?

In case you didn’t have a chance to stop by this week, here is what I shared.

Now on to the features from The Inspiration Board Creative Party. Thank you to each and every one of you who took the time to stop by, comment or share your creativity!
