BFF Open House

 


April is just moving by at a rapid pace. I'm sure it's because I've been doing a lot of back and forth to my mom's, scheduling, following up on scheduling, following up on following up in re: Dr.'s appointments. I don't know how older people who did not grow up with technology are supposed to navigate all of the systems and portals etc. that we all have to use. Anyway, that hasn't left any time for creating so I continue to live vicariously through your creations! 



Let's take a look at some of the wonderful ideas from last week's party! 


First up, on this Earth Day, you have to check out this fabulous upcyle from Upcyle This DIY That ! Wonderful ideas to use up things that we all have on hand! 


I have a bunch of fabric from making masks and JoAnn  enabling me with coupons and these DIY Drawstring Bags from 3 Winks Design are a perfect match for my sewing skills and fabric stash. Complete tutorial provided! 


When I started making cards, I would keep one if I made multiples, to have a little portfolio of them. I kept them in binders and since I tend towards layered cards, they got bulky and unwieldy and I ended up donating all of the cards during one of our moves. I'm also honored that my mom, bestie and others keep the ones I send. But...I think I will resume and adopt this brilliant idea from Linda at Paper Seedlings! Love how she displays her creations! 



Finally...you're welcome. You need these Bakery Style Chocolate Chip Pecan Cookies from The House on Silverado in your life. As the meme goes on Twitter "That's the tweet". 

Thanks to all who linked up and please join me in wishing The Mumster a Happy Birthday tomorrow! Very happy that this year, we actually get to celebrate it with her. 💋😘

Now, let's see what everyone's been up to this week!
