B.Inspired by... RECIPES

It's funny how the simplest things can make such an impact. The Original Menu Planner (pictured above) from JOT it down has literally changed my life! I have been able to plan my meals for the week ahead of time, make my shopping list based on that plan, and subsequently have all the ingredients in the house for each recipe ("gasp"). Needless to say, my husband is thrilled! I'm ashamed to say that I think it's the first time in years that he's had an entire week of homecooked meals (shh... don't tell my mom). So, go buy the Original Menu Planner, then check out these other Etsy creations to assist you with all of those new recipes you will be inspired to try!

B.Inspired by... RETRO FABRIC

Moving into my new home is still 2 long months away, but I can't help but already dream of the decorating possibilities! Generally, my decorating always starts with fabric. Then the rest of the room builds on that. Today I've been drooling over retro fabric on Etsy. Here are a few of my favorites!

B.Inspired by... ACEOs

I recently joined a wonderful group of ladies in creating and trading ATCs (Artist Trading Cards). I can't wait to meet with them this Sunday at Le Petit Artist to show off and trade my first ATC creations! Before I trade them, I plan to make prints to be sold in B.Inspired Boutique and B.Inspired by B&W. Now, check out these other wonderful ACEO creations for sale on Etsy!
