Inspire Me! Thursdays ~ Week #5

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!

Before I dive into this week's inspirations, I'd like to share a sale that's going on over at my friend Lori's Etsy shop for Windsor Hills Wicks & Lather. Lori runs a kick-butt business and has some of the best smelling products ever! You can find out what products she has in her End of Season Sale by Clicking Here! Be sure to place your orders soon, at the prices she has listed, she won't have this inventory very long!! 

You can also link up here to Windsor Hills Wicks & Lather's Facebook page! Lori updates it regularly and you never know, she may have some more items on sale soon! Be on the lookout for a giveaway from Windsor Hills on my blog in the near future!  

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

If you are looking for the perfect Valentine decor for your home, Kathy over at Sparkles and a Stove can show you how to get a great look for your craft letters using your favorite patterns! I'm thinking about making more than one set for my house. The possibilities are endless! You can change the paper and make them fit any theme in your home! How perfect is this? Click Here to swing on over to her blog and check out her tutorial for these letters! 

This week I have two great craft projects from Sparkles and a Stove! Kathy really does have some great ideas, and this is another one that is simple and totally adorable! These Valentine blocks speak for themselves! I really love the colors and the use of pretty elements. Kudos to you Kathy! Click Here to learn how to make these crafty blocks for your home.

How cute is this? Wouldn't you love to display it in your home? Diana over at Project Inspire makes some pretty awesome Subway Art! The best part about this awesome Subway Art is that it is printable! Yes, you heard me correctly! Printable!! I don't think I need to say much more. Click Here to navigate on over to Diana's blog and print it out to display in your home! This would also make a great gift idea ... as would all the Valentine projects featured this week!!! 

I love to make meatloaf. My family loves to come home and smell meatloaf cooking in the oven! Tasha over at Living a Saucey Life has taken my knowledge of meatloaf making to a whole new level! I can't wait to try out her recipe. It looks so delicious! Click Here to hop on over to her blog and learn her secrets to the perfect meatloaf! You will not be disappointed!

So I'm browsing around the internet and reading some of my favorite blogs when I came across {what I like to call} lemon heaven! Dorothy over at Crazy for Crust has lemon fever! She has featured so many lemon desserts that my mouth is watering like crazy! Click Here to go check out all her yummy treats! Your taste buds will thank you later!
