Inspire Me Please Weekend Blog Hop #40

Welcome to the Inspire Me Please Weekend Blog Hop.

I’m gonna go ahead and admit it. I’m lacking the Christmas spirit.

Call me Scrooge.


I will say that after looking through so many of your Christmas projects I was a teensy bit more inspired than I was the day before. Because, seriously….y’all are on top of the Christmas stuff.

Who wants to come over and decorate for me? ANYONE??

You would think that since it’s snowing and sleeting here that I would be in the spirit. But nope. I can not get in the groove. Lord help me.

On to the party!

My favorites from last week:


So most of these links are Christmas related, but I had to include this non-Christmas DIY project. Moving To The Country painted a backsplash. Not THAT. Is brilliant.


I made a few of these signs last year {I became addicted}. NOEL hand painted sign by Little Blue House By The Bay.

Appetizer For A Craft Mind is definitely killing it in the super-mom department with theses adorable candy cane and Christmas tree sandwiches.


Lookie What I Did has decorated her porch in a very MERRY way for Christmas. And she is making me realize I need to get my booty in gear when it comes to holiday decor.


A book page Christmas DIY project by Sweet Parrish Place…adorbs!


I might be copying this JOY sign by Our Mini Family. Do you think it’s the chevron that did it for me?


Y’all know I’m a sucker for fabric garland. I love the look of the flannel one by Camelot Art Creations. diy-sprayed-shoe-cap

Gold toe painted flats by Kolture Shoq. Excuse me while I go get my spray paint…and  87 pair of ballet flats.


I’ve always wanted a white Christmas tree so I’m secretly jealous of this beautiful one by The Thrifty Queen Speaks.

We would love to have you join us by linking up your inspiring projects below.

    I just wanted to pop in and tell you how thrilled I am that you featured my paper Christmas tree tonight! Yay! And don’t worry, the Christmas spirit will hit you when you least suspect it! Cheers!

  4. You know, you could always set the boys loose with the decorations and have them do it for you. I’m sure it would at least be memorable and unique! ;) I can’t even imagine what our house would look like if I did that, lol! Hope you’re having a great week, Mandy! Thanks for hosting!
