THE INSPIRATION BOARD: Spotlight 259 & Happy Hour

Did you have a great weekend? I hope so. My weekend was spent catching up on all things house and life. It feels good to have the house cleaned up, laundry done and the pile of mail taken care of. I am having some major car problems but it’s always something, right? So let’s take a minute, catch our breath and enjoy these beautiful projects featured from The Inspiration Board this week.

THE INSPIRATION BOARD: Spotlight 258 & Lemon Lime Time

Welcome back friends! I hope you had a wonderful weekend. I got back in town from a week of business travel and spent the weekend catching up on all things house. When you leave the husband and teen son home alone you never know what you’ll come home to. We also celebrated a belated Mother’s Day with my mom so between unpacking and laundry, I needed to get to the grocery store, restock the kitchen and make her a special dessert.

And, of course one of my favorite things to do each weekend is to grab a cup of coffee and soak in the projects shared on The Inspiration Board so I can choose the features. So let’s get to the projects featured in the Spotlight this week.

THE INSPIRATION BOARD: Creative Party 258 & Bandana Party Favors


FROM MY ARCHIVES  :  Bandana Party Favors

Welcome to The Inspiration Board Creative Party everyone. I’m traveling for business and currently zipping around and in back to back meetings. That means my husband and son are fending for themselves at home all week. It’s good for them to discover things like the washing machine, dishwasher and vacuum. I’m pretty sure they think these things just magically happen when I’m around. A little dose of reality is good for them and makes them appreciate me.

I’ll be back soon and can’t wait to see what you share on The Inspiration Board. Plus, I may have some fun survival stories to share. Like the time my husband couldn't find the sugar to refill the jar so he used powdered sugar in his coffee. Yup, they are always so happy when I get back from these business trips.

Let’s start the party and as any good hostess would say, stay awhile and enjoy.

THE INSPIRATION BOARD: Spotlight 257 & Frozen

Did you have a good weekend? If you’re a mom or celebrating a mom, I hope you had a wonderful day filled with love. I’m actually out of town on business and had to travel yesterday. We plan on celebrating Mother’s Day next weekend when I’m back in town. So I spent Mother’s Day away from my family in a hotel room. I made up for it by having a nice room service dinner. Anyway, enough about that – let’s move on to the features from The Inspiration Board Creative Party.

A giant thank you to all of you who visited, commented and shared your talent here last week. I hope you had a chance to visit, but in case you didn’t, here’s a glimpse at what I’ve been up to.

THE INSPIRATION BOARD: Spotlight 256 & Bowl Me Over

Hello May and hello friends. May is one of my favorite months. Although we can have May-grey days here in Southern California, the sun always pokes through and the day ends bright and cheerful. With the garden blooming, vegetables growing and longer days to work projects, it’s an inspiring time of year. Need more inspiration? Check out the amazing projects featured from The Inspiration Board below. First up, here’s a little recap of what I’ve been sharing.
