Hello friends! Welcome to a brand new week here at homework. I’m getting ready to head out of town again on another business trip for a week and since it’s only been a few weeks since my last trip, I’m woefully behind. I have projects I’m itching to get to, pictures I need to take and after this trip I’m hoping to get back on pace. How about you? Are you finding yourself behind these days. It’s the preseason warm up friends! We need to get ready for the real holiday craziness. So in case you missed anything here on homework lately, here’s what I’ve been sharing.

The 3rd Annual Handmade Holiday Gift Guide Link Up

Holiday Link Up 2015
Welcome to the 3rd Annual Handmade Holiday Gift Guide Link Up. If you have a handmade store, Etsy Shop, or sell handmade items, now is your chance to show off your wares and boost your holiday sales. I love supporting handmade items and I’m thrilled to host this link up every year. As in years past, I’ll create a holiday gift guide from selected items and share it here before the holidays.

Homework is proud to support handmade!

Blue and Natural Fall Hutch via homework - carolynshomwork (4)Decorating for fall this year was not an easy task. Why? Because it’s still scorching hot here in Southern California. But I persevered and brought autumn into my home.

UPCYCLING: How to make a faux vintage tin

Faux Vintage Tin from Plastic Tub via homework (2)I think this might be one of my favorite projects I’ve ever made. Well, I say that about a lot of my projects. But this one was so fun to transform. Would you believe this faux vintage tin started out as a yellow plastic corn starch container?

Hello, hello everyone. Did you miss me? I was out of town last week but I’m back at my desk / craft table – for a while anyway. And it’s my favorite day of the week. The day I get to see what you’ve been creating.

I love this time of year. We’re not at the frantic holiday shopping phase yet. We’re still in that honeymoon phase, pre-fall, pre-holiday, kids back to school time of year. So I’m expecting big things from all of you. I’m ready to be inspired.

The Inspiration Board: Creative Party Spotlight 223 & Fall Ideas

Hello friends! I just got back into town from a business trip and guess what I did first? Yup, I worked on this features post. I had planned to work at night in my hotel room on a few blog related things but the hotel wifi was sketchy. It makes you appreciate home sweet home all that much more. I mean, not having to cook, clean or do dishes for a week is nice but it’s always a great feeling to walk back in your front door. You know what else I appreciate? All of you friends that link up here on The Inspiration Board. Thank you so much for sharing your talent. And, in case you missed anything here on homework, here’s what I’ve been sharing.
