The Inspiration Board: creative party spotlight ~114~

Happy Friday everyone! I was out of town last weekend and I’ve been playing catch up all week - so the week flew by extra fast for me. This weekend I’m going to try to get ahead because I may be on jury duty next week. I don’t know how it works where you live but we have a call in system. Every night for a week, I call in to see if I need to report. I’m all for doing my duty but I really wouldn’t mind hearing that I’m excused. Keep positive thoughts for me! School is starting soon and like all of you, I have a million and one things to do.

Thank you to everyone who stopped by, visited, commented and shared your creativity last week. I appreciate each and every one of you. If you didn’t get a chance to stop by, here’s what I shared this week.

Now on to the projects in the spotlight this week:

I have such a treat for you today. Last year, I was first introduced to Novica and shared a review and giveaway here on homework. You can read it here. I’m happy to once again be able to share this wonderful site with you and host another giveaway on behalf of Novica and their many artisans.

The beautiful gold and green crystal bracelet on the left is what I reviewed last year. This year I chose a sky and sea blue palette and I couldn’t be more thrilled. I’m also giving away a gift certificate to Novica so one lucky winner will get to explore the many beautiful treasures on the Novica site.

Accessories: Crystal and Bugle Bead Bracelet

Bugle Bead Bracelet via homework (9)When it comes to jewelry, I’m definitely a bracelet girl. Some people look great in big statement necklaces, fun earrings or blingy rings. But I love bracelets. I like to layer them and wear several at once – bangles, beads, stones – you name it.
