BFF Open House Link Party #49 Wrap Up and Features

Another great party and more new BFFs who linked up. Welcome! It amazes me week after week to see new ideas and new twists on ideas we know. Here are just a few highlights of some things I thought were really fun.

First up, being “height challenged” I am forever passing up pants because they will have to be hemmed. I don’t have the sewing skills and I’m too cheap to pay but this trick will save the day. DUCT TAPE!


Seriously! Katie from Creatively Living will show you how! Thanks Katie!

This was a great Earth Day project but it’s also one that can be used all year round.



Deana from Country Mama Cooks has a great tutorial for a reusable market bag. I don’t know about you, but I love my reusable bags. They hold more, don’t tip over in the trunk, and look at how cute this one is!

Love knock offs? Then you should check out this tutorial from Sew Passionate:


who knocked off PB’s coral motif pillow.

Another Earth Day inspired project that’s a great way to recycle and bust some stash:


Check out this wonderful necklace from Janet of All Trades and you’ll see how you can use things you probably already have on hand to make gorgeous jewelry!

Finally, I know many of us were really bummed when Picnik went away but no worries! Mary over at Sweetwater Style has a replacement and some tips to share!


Again, thanks everyone for linking up and continuing to make this a fun party. Have a creative week!

Carol, thanks for being such a lovely host. Great featured pics. I just visited Mary at Sweetwater Style. I'll be looking into that iPad app she recommended.

I like parties. There we make new friends and meet new people. I enjoyed these parties a lot because of unlimited drinks and tasty food.
