BFF Open House

Happy Friday Eve all and Happy Mother's Day Weekend to all of you Moms! We will see "The Mumster" from a distance and then have a proper celebration a bit later. 

Let's see some ideas from last week's party! 

Abbotts At Home shared this gorgeous No Sew Upholstered Bench Top. Love the fabric she chose! I've about worn out my sewing skills making masks so "no sew" is fabulous! 

With our continued increased hand washing, why not make the soap dispensers pretty? Chas from Chas's Crazy Creations shared an inexpensive and easy way to upcycle and do just that! Add a pump to a recyled jar and some paint to a dollar store find et voila!!

Jennifer from Satsuma Designs has a wonderful collection of ways to say Thank You to Teachers in this time of social distancing. I know some of you are playing that role right now or always so thank yourselves too! I especially love the collections of puns she included. 

Finally, this Chocolate Angel Food Cake from Heritage Home Ec is calling my name!! Plus it's a problem solver if you are trying to reach a compromise between Angel Food Cake lovers and Chocoholics! 

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

BFF Open House

Happy Friday Eve all! Can you believe that this time next week we'll have spent the week cooking, eating, and right about now passing out in a food coma? Some of us ( not me!) may even be out shopping. 

Had a WONDERFUL getaway to Disneyland last week. It is always magical but one of the items on my bucket list has been to see it decorated for the Holidays and it did not disappoint! It was like running away to the North Pole ( in 90 degree weather by the last day lol).  I'll share pics in a separate post next week, 

You've all been busy busy busy so here are a few more features than usual! 

If you're planning your Thanksgiving tablescape check out this colorful and beautiful Jeweled Tone one from Bird's Party

Whether you're celebrating Christmas, Hanukkah, Winter, or the "Frozen" sequel that opens on Friday, these magical snowflakes from White House Crafts would be a perfect addition to your decor! In these case they're used for a garland, but so many possibilities! 

Abbotts At Home has a great roundup of 40+ Christmas Projects that you should definitely check out

Buffalo check remains popular and we saw tons of it in the Christmas decor at Disneyland. Penny's Vintage Treasures has a beautiful fireplace vignette. 

Embroidery Hoop wreaths are so simple but pack such a punch. This one from DIY Vibes is no exception! 
I am on record as complaining that there is not enough chocolate associated with Thanksgiving. This Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Cake from Two Chicks and a Mom takes care of that problem! 

And finally, whether you're celebrating the "Frozen" sequel or just looking for a different take on hot chocolate, check out Elsa's White Hot Chocolate from Lindsay's Sweet World !

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

BFF Open House

Happy Friday Eve once again. The good news is, seems like the weeks fly by. The bad news is, so do the weekends but at least this one's a long one. Hoping everyone has a great one and those of you sending kids back to school ( or have already) enjoy some quiet time. 

It's almost Fall ( hard to tell here in the desert where it's still triple digits). Let's take a look at some Fall inspiration from last week's party!

How cute is this Embroidery Hoop Fall Wreath from Kippi At Home?! And look at the coordinating fabric pumpkins. So cute. She even has the "Welcome" SVG file for you. 

How cute are these DIY Color Blocked Tables?! Too cute that's how cute. From Abbotts At Home

If, like me,  you don't have a lot of Fall leaves, make some from paper! These colorful Accordion Leaves from Whitehouse Crafts look like a lot of fun to make and use everywhere!

OK let's see what everyone's been up to this week! Have a wonderful weekend all .

Happy Friday Eve all. Yikes, August is speeding by, and I've seen more and more Fall, Halloween, and Christmas goodies in the stores. Not ready! 

Let's see some ideas from last week's party. 

Chalkboard signs remain so popular and I love them. Chas's Crazy Creations has a super easy one that looks like it was MUCH harder!. So cute. 

I love the style of designed Rae Dunn. Being the makers we are though, more often than not, we're thinking of how we can get a look we love for less. It's a struggle! These "Rae Dunn" inspired signs from Kippi At Home tho...a MUST make! 

I was hooked on "Harry Potter" from the first word I read to my son when he was little. Fast forward and I remain a huge "Potterhead" so these Pillow Boxes from DIY Party Mom based on the Sorting Hat are just so cute. She has more Potter inspired ideas as well! 

Finally, if you haven't tried paint pouring yet , Abbotts At Home has a fantastic tutorial, including video, to get you started. 

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

BFF Open House Link Party

Happy Friday Eve all. Another week has flown by but I got the best Christmas in July present because "PhD Man" aka my son, is home for a visit. To say we're elated is an understatement of understatements since he's so busy and we only get to see him a couple of times a year. 

Let's see some ideas from last week's party!

A concrete project is still on my list for when it cools down a bit here in the desert. Check out some wonderful ideas from Kippi At Home

With all of the Acrylic Paint Pour Canvases I've done and more I plan to do, this DIY Frame idea from Abbotts At Home will come in handy.  

Mermaids and rock painting remain ever popular, so why not combine the two? Fun project to do w/ the kiddos or a craft night with friends. From Serenity You

Finally, with all the fancy desserts out there and there are many and I love them, sometimes it's nice to have something classic and simple like a Vanilla Cake. These in jars from Treat N Trick  are so much fun! 

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

BFF Open House Link Party

Happy Friday Eve all. Ready to say goodbye to March already? Can't believe it. What I really can't believe is that it was a year ago this week that we pulled up stakes from Washington and moved to Arizona. Talk about time flying!

Let's see some ideas from last week's party!

You might guess this gorgeousness is someone's craft room or space decorated for a party. You would be wrong. The luckiest chickens in the world live in this CHICKEN COOP that is prettier than my office! If I ever have a chicken coop ( and since I have coyotes that walk through my neighborhood it's not likely I'd want it to look like this from The Inspired Prairie !

I am in love with the results of this table makeover in blue and copper chalk paint from Abbotts At Home !

I love this beautiful necklace from Bijou Bead Boutique but I love the story behind it even more so you'll have to go check it out. 

Finally, doesn't this cake just scream Spring ?! So pretty. From Howling At The Moon

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

BFF Open House Link Party Back Up And Running!

YAY! Happy Friday Eve all. I'm back up and running on my laptop with a new SSD hard drive and all my fonts and data files in tact. Whew! Thanks for  hanging in there. 

Can I scare you? We're already almost done w/ January and Friday 1/25 marks exactly eleven months until Christmas. Can you believe it? I have vowed that I'm starting much earlier on handmade gifts this year because time flies. 

OK here are some features from last week's party. Thanks for hanging in and hanging with me! 

I love wood slices and have mostly seen them used as trays or plaques, but totally love this idea from Stephanis at  Abbotts At Home to use one as a hanging rack! 

I have always had a thing for birch trees. There is just something about them that is so appealing to me so I couldn't stop staring at these Hand Painted Birch Tree Wine Glasses from Chas's Crazy Creations. You could easily do on a plate, platter, vase. So Pretty! 

Also in love with this chair makeover from Virginia at Artsy VaVa

Finally, as we're getting ready for Valentine's Day, check out this amazing cheesecake from Butter With a Side of Bread:

Wouldn't that be a special treat for your special Valentine?

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