Inspire Me! Thursdays ~ Week #4

Welcome to Inspire Me! Thursdays

Each week I dedicate a day of blogging to showcase some of the best bloggers around and their crafty ideas! This is really a great way to network with others and see what is "hot" in the world of blogging! I hope you will stop in and check out their terrific blogs! You may even feel froggy enough to subscribe to their blogs and follow them to learn more tips and tricks from these great bloggers!

And now for this week's awesome blogs ...

This week has been a real creative one! Many bloggers are in high gear getting their homes all gussied up for Valentine's Day! I can't believe February is almost here! February is not only a big month in our house because of V-Day, but it also is our Anniversary month! This has been the first year I have really gotten on the whole "decorate your house for every holiday" bandwagon. I must admit, I love it!!! It's fun crafting and finding things to do during the day while everyone else is at school and working! 

I have become a HUGE fan of wreaths! I freakin' love them!! My only issue now is convincing myself that I can make one! Does anyone have any simple and easy wreath tutorials you can share with me? If so, leave them in the comments below. Pretty, pretty please  =)

Kathy over at Life on Lakeshore Drive sure does have a pretty wreath on her page! I love the colors she uses and how simple and elegant this wreath looks! Kudos to you Kathy! Click Here to find out all about her wreath!  

Another great wreath comes to us from T'onna over at Navy Wifey Peters. I really love how cute and creative her wreath is! I love the owl element as well! My husband found a mug for Christmas with owls on it and ever since, they have made a statement in our house! Funny how that works, isn't it? Girl, you really know how to rock a wreath! Click Here to swing on over and get the skinny on her awesome creation

Cindy over at Skip To My Lou really nailed it when she shared this creation originally done by one of her friends! It's a "Heart" Attack for your child's door on Valentine's Day! Isn't this the cutest thing you ever seen? I cannot wait to attack Logan's door with a gazillion hearts!! This is so simple and so positive!! I really can't get over how much I love this idea!!! Click Here to visit with Cindy and get the scoop on this totally creative Valentine! 

Julie over at Restyle Relove turned this awesome door into a sign that would be perfect in my house no matter what decor look I had going on! Nathan {my dear hubby} has always called me his sunshine! I have various things throughout our home that bare these words! I particularly love this sign for a few reasons:  1) It's pretty;  2) It's functional;  3) The font rocks;  4) It's totally simple to make! Julie has a great tutorial on how to make a sign like this for your very own! You won't never believe how much she paid for the wood door either!!! I'm not going to give it away!!! Click Here to hop on and be amazed!! 

My last inspiration for this week comes to us from Debbie from over at Confessions of a Plate Addict. I not only love her Valentine's pillow but I'm also in love with her darlin' staff! Be sure to go view her page and check out her adorable cats! Hrmm... I mean "staff" members!! I cannot tell you how much I laughed and said "Awwww" when I first saw their pictures! They are so cute!!! And so is this pillow! It's just too neat. Can you believe she simply designs tons of pillow covers and uses the same pillow for every holiday/occasion? What a great idea! I would have never thought of doing it that way! Kudos to you Debbie! You definitely know how to save money and make killer decorations! Click Here to learn how to make this pillow cover for yourself and be sure to say hello the all the lovely babies on her page  =)
