inspiration...pass it on

Remember last month when I shared an 'Inspiration...pass it on' post,
I thought it would be fun to do one every month, so here's the latest...

and showed me the new spring look for her secretary.  
Right back atcha, Amber ~ she inspired me with this pretty floral update!


I'm on a mission for the perfect wrapping paper to spring-ify my family room built-in bookcase,
and it needs to show up soon, because... 


The removable poster tape I used was awesome, not a trace left behind on the bookcase,
look close you can see it in the corners and in the middle of this piece of paper I removed.
(Check out the product Amber used, it looks just as effective and so easy!)


Instead of wasting it, I had a little OCD moment used it to line the drawers in my buffet ...


and the drawers in my bathroom... :)


Onto more inspiration...

Christy @ Confessions of a Serial DIYer turned this side yard into
a gorgeous spot you won't recognize, using recycled granite block, by herself!
Amazing!

I love the paper in your "oh so awesome" dresser. I've been on the hunt for a similar ever since seeing yours.
And that is a beautiful backyard makeover!

You are too good reusing that paper! Love that side yard, I know from Stephen's experience at our house that is a ton of work!

I love using gift wrap for all sorts of stuff too Pam! I used it to back my media center during the holidays to give it a holiday feel without over-doing it! I also use it for place mats, which I did this easter and will be posting about soon! Rounded up 9 ideas for gift wrap use here...

You really made that paper go far. I need to go check out that side yard. I'm going to be a gardening fool, if it ever gets warmer.
