BFF Open House


Happy Friday Eve all and for me, a kickoff to my birthday weekend. Celebrating another trip around the sun. Thanks for filling this past year with all of the creativity shared here each week. I'd also like to thank you for the support shown as I shared my journey with anxiety and depression last week. While I didn't share anything new this week, I did find the inspiration to start a Halloween Tree Skirt...have it cut out and just need to put it together...and a few cards I needed to make. Will share soon. 

It's cooled down enough to resume daily walks and having a new neighborhood to explore is great. Where we are now, we're surrounded by pecan groves filled with leaves and we're curious to see if they change color. 

Let's take a look at some of the fun ideas shared at last week's party! 

With Halloween approaching, now's the time to work on new additions to your decor. These DIY Spell Books from Masterpieces of My Life are just perfect! Pick up some old hardcover books from the thrift store or Goodwill and have at it!

Need a fun new shirt for Halloween? Check out this idea from Artsy Fartsy Mama who has the FREE "I'm A Little Batty" SVG file to download. This works for me regardless of the season! 

Nature crafts are always fun to make and these Twig Stars from Serenity You are no exception. I'll have to start looking for twigs on my morning walks. 

Finally, another nature craft...Word Stones from Thriving With Less. I've seen these in decor boutiques but none as gorgeous as these! If you collected some from the beach or river, what a wonderful way to memory keep. Or, you could grab a big bag from a home improvement store! 

Thanks as always to everyone who linked up and let's see what you've all been up to this week! 

You are invited to the Inlinkz link party!
