Inspire Me Monday #48 – Week Of December 3, 2012

Inspire Me Monday

I like the idea of Inspiration Monday.
Monday’s often get the short end of the stick
But they are fraught with potential!
Judy Palmer

    Thanks for always hosting Inspire Me Monday! I know it takes time and effort. I love your choices too! I’m going to visit everyone of them! Well, except for my sister Peggy’s as I’ve read her post already. Blessings! Patsy from HeARTworks

    • Thanks Patsy! I LOVE Inspire Me Monday and I LOVE visiting everyone’s blogs – I usually end up with twice as many features that I want to share than I have the room for and really have to pare it down or I could spend all day on it!

      This is such a wonderfully supportive community. I am so glad that you and Peggy are a part of it!

      Have a blessed week! 🙂

  8. Thank you so much for featuring my Christmas sticker jewelry! I enjoyed seeing all the lovely seasonal ideas in this party; thanks for hosting it. 🙂

    • Thanks for sharing Rena – that tutorial was fab!
      EVERYONE has old stickers lying around just begging for creative ways to be used – and that jewelry looked so beautiful, one would never guess that stickers were the source of their beauty! 🙂

  9. Thanks for hosting – I’m new and glad to be a part! Today I shared “Making Kefir Video Class” which is so easy to do at home and “Beef Plus – Chili for a Crowd” which has ground beef plus kidney and liver – my children love it!
