Project Inspire{d} #65 Link Party and Features

Welcome to this week’s Project Inspire{d}!  The past week went by so quickly and just so you don’t lose track of time, this upcoming Sunday, May 11th, is Mother’s Day.  

Here is some of what I shared over the past few days.

Lavender-sachet-vintage-doily cupcakes-and-crinoline

On Friday I was part of a Mother’s Day Blog Hop and I gave a mini tutorial on how to make Mom (or yourself!) a fresh lavender sachet using a vintage doily and there is no need for sewing…so easy and so pretty!  

How-To-Make-a-Twine-Nest #twine #nest cupcakes-and-crinoline #cupcakes #crinoline

Last week I also did a tutorial on how to make a bird’s nest from twine and glue ~ you get messy but isn’t it cute? 


I have a giveaway going on right now along with a wonderful Pledge that you can take to Disconnect to Reconnect ~ it’s all about unplugging and committing to connecting for at least one family meal a week.  What a great idea!  You can take the pledge and enter the giveaway here and the giveaway is a great Breakfast for Dinner Package valued at $125.00.

Now for This Week’s Features

Spring table setting 1-2 I could stare at these beautiful flowers and this table setting from Simply Suzanne all day ~ isn’t it beautiful?

Rhino Cut-out Purse Malia’s Pick ~ This Rhino Crossbody Bag ~ it’s an Anthropologie Knockoff shared by Confessions of a Secret Crafter 

PicMonkey-CollageE1 Steph’s Pick ~ This unbelievably beautiful and delicious looking Hummingbird Cake from Home. Made. Interest. I’ve been cutting back on my sugar but this made me gasp and cry all at the same time…I am obviously a cake addict! ;) 


 Diane’s Pick ~ Scandinavian Inspired Entry Way from Amy Krist ~ gorgeous!
