The Inspiration Gallery Link Party Week 17

Happy Thursday sweet blog friends!

First let me tell you, you ARE in the right place… It is link party night, BUT, Lucy, Taryn and I have decided to rename our party–to the Inspiration Gallery instead of Happy Hour.

I think it is the PERFECT name for our party, because I truly do think that each and every link is inspirational, and I appreciate each idea and project that you share with us!

And before I go on with normal party business let me just say, a heartfelt thank you.  You guys have given me the most special week ever.  Sharing my baby news with you has been SO special!  I can’t even begin to tell you how each message left for me has meant so much to me.  I like the idea of going through this experience with each of you.  So one more time for today, thank you.

But, like I have promised, no more baby talk for a little while…. lets focus on those of you who have crafted and shared this week!

At the new and improved Inspiration Gallery Link Party!!!

The Inspiration Gallery Link Party

As always, there are 3 hosts for this party, and we love sharing what we have been up to just as much as you do!!

SO lets, start here!

Crafty Scrappy Happy

Yep, I spilled the beans, my husband and I are expecting a “Little Bean”!  I made the official announcement here, and then shared more of my personal feelings here.  Then I asked you to help me decide if I officially have a bump or not when I got you all up to date on where I am now, 13 weeks!  Okay, and I am caving because I am going to tell you AGAIN, I ADORE each and every comment you left me this week.  You are each such great friends!  Thank you!

Taryn is back in the CUTE crafting mode this week!  She made an update to her sweet twig wreath so it now fits her post Christmas decor!  And she made the cutest wood tone welcome sign!  I love it!  I have really been drawn to the mix of wood tones and paint together lately!

This week Lucy started off by sharing some AMAZING photos of her family, and she talked about how her “word” of the year, I think it is a perfect word!  In the same post she shared a very clever way to make your own fire starters!  Lucy also shared how to make your own chalkboard signs using PicMonkey, I love her examples!  Finally this week she also shared a simple treat bag idea for Valentines, of course they made me drool because my all time favorite alphabet stamps were involved!
