The Inspiration Board: Creative Party 159 and a Yarn Flower Sweater


Hello everyone! Welcome to The Inspiration Board Creative Party. We’re a little more than halfway through June with the official start of summer very soon. I’m ready for some beach weather. Here in Southern California we have to suffer through what’s called June Gloom, these are overcast mornings with the sun peaking through in the afternoon. Are you in full summer-mode? Kid’s activities, lazy days, vacations? Or have you been busy sprinkling summer throughout your house? Starfish, buoys, and sand dollars? I can’t wait to see your summer inspiration.

Mollie Makes Book Review via homework - carolynshomework (10)Hello friends. Chances are if you’re here visiting at homework, you like creative ideas and are most likely crafty in some way. Maybe it’s scrapbooking or sewing. Crocheting or knitting? Perhaps you have your own blog or are considering starting an Etsy Shop. And unless you are lucky enough to have a background in business, it’s often difficult to turn your passion into a successful money-making business.

AU NATURALE: Creative Ideas Using Driftwood



Hello friends! I live very close to the beach but one thing that I never see is driftwood.

Let me know if you know of any good beaches in Southern California where you can find driftwood. I’d love to make some of these projects that I’ve rounded up.
