The Inspiration Board: Creative Party 156 Spotlight & Summer Gift Ideas

Hello friends and happy Friday! Did you have a good week? With the holiday on Monday and my son’s high school graduation yesterday, I don’t know if I’m coming or going. If you stopped by this week to visit or share I link, thank you so much! The link party was smaller this week {a more intimate gathering}, probably because of the holiday and all the end-of-school year events. But none the less, the projects were truly inspirational. If you didn’t have a chance to pop this week, here’s what I shared.




And now on to the projects featured in the spotlight this week.

HOMEWORK READING: Celebrating Everyday Life with Jennifer Carroll

MayJune2014Cover72dpiHello friends! Today is a holiday here in the United States. It’s Memorial Day. The day we remember and honor those we have lost serving this country. Unofficially, it also marks the beginning of summer. So as we pause today to remember, honor and look ahead, I thought it would be the perfect time to share some beautiful inspiration.

The Inspiration Board: Creative Party 155 Spotlight & Freshen Up Inspiration

Happy Friday friends! We crafted, baked, diyed, decored, baked and sewed through another week. It’s that crazy end-of-school-year time of year when kids go bonkers, parents are exhausted and there are still a million things to do. I’m especially grateful to all of you for visiting here at homework because I know everyone is super busy. If your schedule got the best of you, and you didn’t have a chance to stop by this week, here’s what I shared.

EXTRA CREDIT: Spring Cleaning with AirRam Sweepstakes

Blue-White-Living-Room-via-homework-[4]
Well friends, we’re almost done with spring and guess what. I never did my spring cleaning. With my son being a high school senior, it’s been a crazy year. College applications and visits, senior year events and now end of year and graduation events. Plus besides running this blog, I started working again.I don’t even want to tell you the disaster that my house has become. The picture above was taken last year when I had things a little more under control.

Once my son leaves for college (sniff, sniff), I will be doing some major cleaning and organizing. Hey, I might even redecorate his room. This AirRam Cordless Vacuum sounds amazing and would make cleaning so much easier. Lightweight, cordless and bagless. I have a really old vacuum so this would be a really nice replacement for my “vintage” heavy vacuum.

How about you? Wouldn’t you like to upgrade and update your vacuum? Enter for a chance to win one.

COLOR INSPIRATION: Sand & Sea {sea blue and beige}

COLOR INSPIRATION: Sand & Sea {light blue & beige} curated by carolynshomework.com

With the recent warm weather it’s hard not to dream about days on the beach. One of my favorite color combinations is light blue and beige. To me, it’s timeless, serene and always seems to be in style.
And so, inspired by the Sand & Sea, I created this round up of beautiful light blue and beige inspiration. I hope you enjoy it.
