The Inspiration Board: Spotlight 238 & Cheers

Welcome back everyone. I hope you had a fantastic weekend and if you celebrate Christmas, I truly hope it was filled with joy. I think I need about a month to recover from the holiday prep, frenzy and ridiculous amounts of food and treats. I actually don't have a much time to recover because I head out of town in a week for business travel. Phew, I'm tired just thinking about it.

It doesn't look like any of you have missed a beat. The projects linked up on The Inspiration Board were amazing as usual. I'm so grateful that you choose to share here on homework. And, in case you've been too busy to pop over, here's what I've been sharing lately.

Now take a minute to enjoy the projects featured this week.

The Inspiration Board: Spotlight 237 & Eggnog Recipes

Well, here we are friends. Ready or not, it’s Christmas week. I had a marathon wrapping weekend and I worked on our Christmas cards. This is the first year in probably 20 years that I didn’t make our Christmas cards. I ordered them and apparently I didn’t allow enough time so I just received the box and was furiously addressing and stamping. I knew it would be a mad dash to the finish line but this year I really pushed it. I hope you had a nice weekend and could enjoy the season. In case you’ve missed anything here on the blog, here’s a little snapshot of what I’ve been sharing.

A huge thank you to all of you who stopped by, commented or linked up to the party last week. It was another amazing week of fantastic inspiration. So without further ado, here are the project featured this week.
