It’s been a busy week here & not slowing down over the next two, with graduations, parties….Don’t forget to grab your chances at winning some prizes & entering the giveaways before you go! You can see all last week’s previous entries to link party #42 but, now onto the featured entries & this week’s Inspiration Spotlight!

In The Spotlight

Diy Garden Markers

Love this easy diy for garden plant markers submitted by ThePinJunkie. She is a  wife, mother, and elementary school teacher. She also has a passion for pinning! She’s a Pinterest junkie (or pin junkie for short) Finding & creating knock off projects that are inspired by pins on my Pinterest boards.

Garden Ball Diy

This garden ball diy was submitted from Ann at MakeTheBestof Things. Gazing balls are expensive & if you are looking for a thrifty way to create a garden ball, this diy is easier than you think, but Ann does mention you have to make it a section at a time. To find out how just give her a visit so you can create your own gazing ball. Ann always been creative and even her current treatment for breast cancer has only slowed her down, not stopped her. Ann finally has her own craft studio where she can paint, sew, draw, crochet, design, quilt, you name it. Be sure to head over to cheer her on & say hi!

Homemade Seedling Containers

This idea was submitted from Teresa who blogs at Rockspring Crafts. Not only is this a great way to re-purpose a soda bottle, but it is an easy way to start seedlings. Not to mention wouldn’t this be a great project to do with kids. Starting plants, flowers & then transferring them into the ground. Or even a mini terrarium they can tend to over the summer! Teresa loves to cook, sew, read, garden, hike & take photographs. She hopes her blog will reflect all her interests & be a record of  how enjoyable her early retirement can be. Teresa is a newer blogger so maybe you can pop by & show how the blogging community can be supportive, say hi & let her know how you  found her!

Now I have a few shout outs!
