Inspire Me! Thursdays ~ Week #2

Welcome to Inspirational Thursdays here at Country Mom Creations! I have found many great blogs for the over the last 2 weeks, and I can't wait to share some of the neat ideas I have found to try out myself! If you are new to my blog, welcome! Let me give you a little insight on how Inspirational Thursdays work. Each Thursday, I will showcase some marvelous ideas or things I'd like to try from other bloggers. This is a win-win situation for us all! It allows me to share things I like, it gives my readers new blogs to read and find their own inspirations from, and it allows bloggers to connect and get maximum exposure all around the board!

I just started this weekly post last Thursday so I hope to be able to grow it and my blog as we go along week by week. If I use your project and/or ideas in my posts on Thursdays, I will be sure to let you know and provide a link to your blog. I'm working on designing a button you can grab and display on your page to let everyone know you were featured on Inspirational Thursdays! Please bare with me as I get all these things done!

Now, let's get on with the sharing!

I just love this snow ornament! It is super cute and very easy to make! It always amazes me how something so simple and elegant can really pack a punch when it comes to decorating! Not to mention, these would make perfect gifts that you can personalize in many ways! Swing on over to Alderberry Hill to get the full scoop on how to make these and be sure to check out all the other fun ideas featured on the blog!

 If you are like me, you get a ton of cute Christmas cards every year that you just can't bare to throw away once the New Year has rolled around. I have been known to save a few of my favorite cards every year; but to no surprise, they just get shoved in a drawer and lost until it's time to do spring cleaning! I love the idea of making the cards into garland! This idea rocks in so many ways, and it can be used for more than just Christmas cards! Just think of how many ways you could use this? You can display small drawing from school, use photos, and the list goes on! I'm sure you can think of many ways to use this other than at Christmas time! Be sure to hop on over to Happy Kids, Inc. to learn how to assemble the garland. Take a look around at the other crafty projects listed on the blog while you are there! 

I hope everyone has enjoyed my inspirations for this Thursday! Be sure to stop by next week to see what other "finds" I have ran across while blog hopping! 

I hope everyone has a great weekend and  Merry Christmas!

Take time with the ones you love, pray for the ones you've lost and give to those that need it! 


  1. I love the idea of turning Christmas Cards into garland!! I'm the same way - I have piles of old Christmas cards - this would be a great way to keep them!
