Project Inspire{d} #67 Link Party and Features

Welcome to this week’s Project Inspire{d}! Can you believe that a week from today is Memorial Day?  For me that’s the official kickoff of Summer.  When I was growing up it was a wonderful time for me ~ my Father’s Birthday, my Brother’s Birthday and my Parents Wedding Anniversary were all within 5 days of each other and were right on Memorial Day {depending on the year} or right near it.  We almost always had a big family picnic to celebrate it all.

 I also had a pretty picture of a rose from my garden that I thought went well with the sentiment above {you can download the 8 x 10 version here}.

Last week I spouted off about wanting to post more {I SORT OF LOVE TO BLOG!} but alas, work had a mind of its own and I was overwhelmed with it ~ as a matter of fact I am sitting here typing this so tired….I worked last night until after 3 a.m. and it looks like tonight is going to be another late one so send me some coffee and let’s get to this week’s


west-elm-inspired-dining-table-upcycledtreasures  Katie from Upcycled Treasures shared this AMAZING West Elm Inspired Dining Table ~ I love it.  It has inspired me.  I had a table in my sunroom that was almost as old as me {don’t say, WOW…that’s old…I’ll cry if you do}.  It was from my parent’s house and was the table we had when I was growing up.  We never used it, ever, and so it was time to send it off to the unknown.  I want to try my hand at making this to take it’s place…wish me luck!}.


Malia’s Pick ~ Jamie from Scattered Thoughts of a Crafty Mom shared this GORGEOUS Faux Mercury Glass Vase ~ I have been wanting to make these.  I bought the supplies and they sit…in my garage…waiting…maybe seeing how lovely her’s turned out I’ll MAKE THEM! 


Steph’s Pick ~ DIY Beautify shared how to make your own Graduation announcements for PENNIES with Picmonkey ~ this is such a great idea and perfect for the upcoming graduation season.


Diane’s Pick ~ Mommy Merit Badges from Smart Kids 101  ~another great idea and I’m feeling a sash with these babies dotted all over them for me to sport this summer!
