BFF Open House #29 Wrap Up and Features and Carmex Giveaway Winner!

Happy Thanksgiving Week everyone. Thanks to everyone who linked up at last week’s BFF Open House. One of the best turnouts ever with more fantastic ideas. Here are just a few:

I am always amazed at the results achieved by those of you brave enough to tackle big DIY projects. Caroline from Artfully Caroline built a mantel. BUILT. A. MANTEL!

Isn’t it gorgeous?

Speaking of mantels, I don’t think I ever would have thought you could find one at Goodwill. But that’s exactly what Karin at Art Is Beauty did and look at the stunning result:


I have a slight wreath obsession among other things. So I couldn’t resist this “Glam” wreath from Michele at The Scrap Shoppe. ANd you should also read the reason she made it.

And since I remain burlap challenged, I’m in awe of anyone who can coax beauty from my fabric nemesis. Look at what AJ from Queen of My Nest created:
