Welcome to the Spring Into Cash Sweepstakes!


INKLING: Ephemera, Origami & Rice Paper {fusion}

Ephemera Cards via homework | carolynshomework.comIf you’re a scrapbooker or paper crafter, you probably know what ephemera is. They’re bits of paper typically used in paper crafting. The actual definition is: things that are important or useful for only a short time: items that were not meant to have lasting value:  paper items (as posters, broadsides, and tickets) that were originally meant to be discarded after use but have since become collectibles. I love these pretty little bits of book pages and other tidbits.

The Inspiration Board: creative party spotlight ~144~

We’re springing forward everyone. Well, not everyone – I don’t think everyone participates in the crazy change-your-clocks back and forth thing. For those that do, Daylight Savings time begins this weekend, which means longer daylight hours. Yay, more time for crafting or getting in that outdoor spray paint project before it gets dark.

I hope everyone is starting to see more spring-like weather. I know, I’ve been completely inspired and find myself drawn to dreamy pastel colors. In case you didn’t get a chance to stop by this week, here’s what I shared.

Plus, I have two giveaways currently open – click the links to enter:

Thank you to everyone who dropped by this week. I so appreciate all your comments and visits. A special thank you for those of you who shared your creativity on The Inspiration Board this week. The projects were amazing. Please enjoy the projects featured in the spotlight this week.

Spring Birdcage via homework | carolynshomework.com

A while back, I participated in a Hometalk | Michaels event. You can read about it here. One of the projects we could create for the event was a decorated birdcage. I was disappointed because my store was all out of birdcages.

EXTRA CREDIT: Giveaway for an Xbox or PS4

I have a super fun giveaway to offer to you! I know these gaming consoles are so popular with kids but they can be so pricey. Here’s a chance to win either an Xbox One or PS4.

I think the very first video game I ever played was Pong. Many of you are probably too young to even remember this addicting game. Games and the amazing graphics have come a long way since Pong.
