BFF Open House Link Party


Happy December all! Hope you're staying warm and cozy. We finally turned our heat on here in the desert! Happy Hanukkah to those celebrating and for those of us counting down to Christmas....YIKES! My halls are about 85% decked and cards went out today. Let's see some ideas from last week's party. 


I've seen these cookie displays in bakeries and boutiques and just love them. All That's Jas has a tutorial on how to do your own. 


I love creating holiday vignettes which are a great way to use up stray ornaments or miscellaneous found pieces. Follow The Yellow Brick Home shared some wonderful ideas. 



I am a total "Potterhead". Fell in love with the Harry Potter series from the moment I read the first word to my son, and while he's moved on, I'm still enamored by the "Potterverse". If you have a beloved but worn copy ( or find one in a thrift store), here's a way to make a special ornament for the Potterhead in your life from Reviews Chews and How-Tos


Finally, what are the holidays without Fudge? And what's better than Fudge but Peanut Butter Fudge? From Raes Books and Recipes

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

BFF Open House Link Party


Happy Friday Eve and Happy October all! Yikes, Halloween's just around the corner and from there the holiday season kicks into overdrive. Already heard Christmas music somewhere. 

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


I know that the movie "Hocus Pocus" has a huge fan following. Confession time: I've never seen it! Not intentionally, just never have. However I know the fan base is HUGE so here's a great tee shirt for all you Hocus Pocus fans from A Sprinkle of Joy, and Danielle has included a free cut file for you to download! 

To go with your cute tee, you could make  yourself and/or a friend this gorgeous turquoise bracelet from DIY Adulation. So pretty for Fall ! Marie gives you step by step instructions. 


Now that we're settled into our home, I'm SO excited to be surrounded by my craft supplies again most especially my paper!  How cute are these Paper Pumpkins from Linda at Paper Seedlings? Scatter these around the house ; make a centerpiece ; make a garland ... possibilities are endless



Finally, if you are planning a Fall or Halloween party and you want to wow your guests, check out this GORGEOUS cake from All That's Jas. OMGeeeee!!!

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

BFF Open House Link Party


Happy Friday Eve all! Hope everyone's survived the week. Getting used to my first monsoon season here in the desert. We've been here for a few but nothing like this! Been distracted the past couple of weeks and looking forward to soon being settled in new digs. Here are some features from last week's party!


Artsy Va Va was back with another amazing makeover! Check out this gorgeous Record Cabinet Makeover! 


I have seen these stands at antique and vintage stores and they've been overpriced. I just discovered that they sell a version of them at Harbor Freight Tools so with a little spray paint, I can antique my own and have a cool tiered stand like this one from Penny's Vintage Home ! She found hers for 75% off at Hobby Lobby. 


There's nothing quite like German Glass Glitter but it can get pricey. Eco Friendly Saver has a great way to make your own using broken glass ornaments!


Finally, nothing says Summer like S'Mores but how about as ice cream? Better yet, No Churn Ice Cream from All That's Jas

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

BFF Open House Link Party


Happy Friday Eve and welcome to another link up. As always, thanks for choosing to share your creativity here! Here are some great ideas from last week's party. 



I love a good no sew project and especially when it comes to pillows. Changing throw pillows can change the whole feel of a room. These from Repurpose and Upcycle are perfect! 


Floating frames are so ethereal but can get pricey. Faeries and Fauna shared how to make your own using a repurposed frame. 


With hand lettering , coloring and doodling being so popular,  buying sketchbooks to fill can add up. Hazel and Gold Designs shows how you can make your own. Great to keep or give as gifts! 


Finally, with yesterday being "National Iced Coffee Day" this Greek Frappe from All That's Jas would have been the perfect treat. Given how fueled I am by coffee, this is definitely on my to make list!

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

BFF Open House Link Party


Happy last party of January because can you believe next week's party will be on Feb 1?! That means Valentine's Day and Galentine's Day ( the day before V-Day dedicated to celebrated our bestie girlfriends) is right around the corner. So here are some ideas from last week's party to get you ready! 



Let's start with this super cute Milk and Cookies idea from Satsuma which includes a recipe for homemade Nutter Butters and a milk carton template you can download. How cute for a friend, teacher, kiddo, spouse. 


We love party crackers at Christmas but they don't have to be just for Christmas. Bird's Party has some fun ones for Valentine's Day! 


Valentine's Day is prime time for chocolate so these Peanut Butter Cookies with Chocolate Heart Centers from The Frugal Sisters are perfect! 


Finally, if you're looking for a "wow factor" dessert for Valentine's Day, you will want to check out this "Rare Cheesecake" from All That's Jas ( as well as for the explanation of what makes it rare). Gorgeous! 

Time to see what everyone's been up to this week!

BFF Open House Link Party : Farewell 2017


Hard to believe that we are at the end of 2017, but here we are. Thank you all, old friends and new, who have made coming to my little party a part of your weekly activities. I truly enjoy seeing all of your inspiration and creativity and appreciate you taking the time to share it here. 

Wishing all of you, my wonderful "Chocaholic" followers, health, happiness, and continued creativity in 2018! 

Whether you're going out or staying in, here are some ideas from last week's party that are perfect for New Year's Eve! 


Let's start with this festive Creamy Apply Mocktail (non-alcoholic) from Play Dates and Parties! Whether the adults don't drink or you want something kid-friendly, it's perfect. 


If you are looking for an adult beverage , Leslie's also got you covered with this Peppermint Mochatini cocktail and this


that Craft Beering shared on Leslie's blog. 


Of course you can't have cocktails ( or mocktails) without appetizers. These oney Sriracha Kabobs from Looney For Food look delicious. 


Ask Dr. Ho shared a recipe for a tasty Mushroom Herbed Cheese Bruschetta

And Baked Brie is always a great appetizer. This one from All That's Jas topped with nuts and cranberries looks spectacular.  

Whatever you're doing this NYE, stay safe and have fun! Now, let's see what everyone's been up to this week.
