The Inspiration Board: creative party spotlight ~134~

Has everyone recovered from the hustle and bustle of Christmas? I think I need a few more days…  I went ahead and hosted the Inspiration Board link party this week even though it fell on Christmas Eve and I was so happy that so many people came by and shared projects. Thank you to everyone who took the time to swing by during this busy week.

If you didn’t have a chance to stop by, here’s what I shared here at homework.

CELEBRATIONS: New Year’s Eve Confetti Straws

New Year's Eve Confetti Straws via homework | carolynshomework.comEvery year I try to come up with a new way to package up confetti for New Year’s Eve. That way, everyone just gets a small handful and the confetti and glitter clean up is somewhat manageable. Besides, the package makes it all the more fun.

The Inspiration Board: creative party spotlight ~133~

Happy Friday everyone! Ready or not, next week is Christmas. Here’s the reality at my house: a tree that’s not decorated and only has lights on the top half because all our strands died, my traditional décor of a nutcrackers and evergreen swags are still in the garage and there’s no cute bowl of trendy pastel ornaments on the table. But, I have finished shopping (phew), we have our traditional plan to head to my parents on Christmas day and at some point I’ll break out the iron so that we can be wrinkle-free at Church. So I guess the reality is, I am ready for Christmas.

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



While I look for my iron and start wrapping gifts, enjoy the projects in the spotlight this week.
