If in the midst of the summer heat you could use a little inspiration... our hot summer weekly link party is the place to cool off and get your creative juices charged up again.  Don't miss the place for creativity, crafts, DIY makeovers, recipes, home decor and more!

It’s just been another normal hot summer week… trying hard not to melt.
I got to go to the beach, twice!
One of my favorite things in all the world to do is walk the shoreline, stand at water’s edge and
let the waves wash over my toes and erode the sand on which I’m standing while I sink in to the
softness that somehow erases the cares of the world, and finally lie on the sand with my
eyes closed and listen to the sounds of the wind and water.  Aaaaah! 

How was YOUR week?

It’s so good to have you join us this week for another hot summer weekly link party!
I’m so excited to see your latest creative great ideas.
And I know our non-blogging friends can’t wait to be inspired.

 It’s time for Project Inspire{d}!

Project Inspired Link Party goes live every Monday night at 8 Eastern.

14 Must Have Summer Salad Recipes

On Sunday I attended at picnic where I needed to bring a dish to share. The broccoli salads
shared by Scattered Thoughts of a Crafty Mom and Sweep Tight both looked so good
I couldn’t decide which to make so I took something from both and made up my own,
which was a huge hit!  If you need a new salad recipe… don’t miss these!

Stop back during the week for more extraordinary goodness.

Be sure to head over to see
what my co-hostesses have been doing…

  1. Hello beautiful! I’m thrilled to be a part of your party. I hope you get a chance to stop by our party that starts on tonight at 7 pm. We would love to party with you twice! Lou Lou Girls

  2. Thank you Diane for Project Inspired 129. We’ve had 3 months of hot weather (hotter and earlier than usual) and finally 2 rain days. Back to hot weather again. Not the usual pattern for coastal BC.

    Thanks for your continued inspirations Diane, and for hosting a fabulous weekly party!

  4. The beach? Yay! You must live pretty close to go twice in one week. I am a beach girl too and I love both oceans and lakes. Thank you for another week of fun Diane. Keep staying cool and be blessed.

      I grew up just 3 miles from one of the most stunning public beaches in the country… so I am thrilled to enjoy this special time. 🙂
