BFF Open House All Party , No Features


Happy Friday Jr. / Friday Eve all! It's the crazy stubborn lady who has an insane full time job and who should just plan that the last party of each month is going to be featureless, again. We'll catch up next week!

In the meantime, wishing you all a wonderful last weekend of September and please stay and enjoy the party! 

Hugs!

BFF Open House Link Party


Happy Friday Eve all. Can you believe we're headed into the last week of January already? Wasn't it just Christmas? 

There were some really cool and inspirational ideas shared at last week's party ( and I've fixed things this week so the thumbnails show...operator error!)


Let's start with this Wood Burned and Stained Mandala Tray that Kileen from Raven Would shared. I recently bought a wood burning tool to play with and this is my inspiration!! Isn't it spectacular?


All the way from Germany is this beautiful illuminated 3D paper art piece from Wesens Art blog. I love what she shared in her post too: 

"Especially this object is important for me. 
It should remind me to really trust my abilities. 
I'm a creative person and want to do more creative things for myself - to keep it or give it away. Just because I want to do it!"
Couldn't agree more!


So I've been seeing a lot about Instant Pots lately and I'm interested in anything that sounds fast in these time compressed times. The ladies from LollyJane sure have me intrigued with 23 Instant Pot recipes! I do have a Williams Sonoma gift card from Christmas I haven't used yet....hmmm

With Valentine's day coming up , here are some yummy treats: 


What's better than a chocolate chip cookie? An Oreo stuffed chocolate chip cookie! Check out Sugar Spice and Family Life for the recipe...if you dare! 

OK on to this week's party!! Happy Weekend all.

BFF Open House Link Party

NOTE: I goofed up somehow and did text only links. Inlinkz won't let me switch to thumbnails so will fix for next week! 

Happy Friday Eve all! Usually the best day of the week. Hope everyone's had a good one. Seems like we were just here doesn't it? But you can never have too many parties ( except in real life...I am a total party pooper!). 

Let's take a look at some great shares from last week's party. 


If you've ever wondered what you'd do with a dress form, here's a spectacular idea. In total love with this stunning Valentine's dress form from My Thrift Store Addiction. Gorgeous! 


The ingenious Mich in LA shared this lovely ring made from fleece and felt scraps! Who'dathunk of this except her? Not me!


Avacadoes aren't just for guacamole ( but oh how I love guacamole!). This time of year is hard on the skin yet so  many commercial masks still have chemicals. This one from Alba Rosa can be made from all natural ingredients you likely have in your kitchen. 

With Valentine's Day rapidly approaching, time to start thinking up special treats. How about this Raspberry Cream and Brownie Trifle for Two from the ladies at Lolly Jane? 


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

BFF Open House Link Party


Happy Friday Eve all! I hope the week has been good to you and that you've stayed warm! We were spared the snowstorm visited upon our PNW neighbors to the south in Oregon and I'm hoping it stays that way!

Grap a cup of your favorite whatever and let's look at some great ideas shared at last week's party. 


First up, a huge CONGRATS to Andrew and Dennis , the creators of Crafty Lumberjacks on not only starting their new You Tube Channel but on also joining HGTV's Handmade Channel!! Check out this genius idea they shared for their first feature: 



These fabulous tags from Much More Creative couldn't be more timely could they? 


I've yet to try candle making but this idea from Woods of Bell Trees is definitely one to try! Can you ever have too many candles? (Heather, I couldn't figure out where to leave you a comment)


Finally this printable from Lolly Jane is always a good reminder. A quote I've loved since "Dead Poets Society". 

Now, let's see what you've been up to this week! Thanks so much for stopping by.

BFF Open House Link Party Happy New Year!



Happy New Year! Hope everyone had a safe and happy start to 2017. My new favorite New Year's Quote is: 

"May the best of last year be the worst of this year"
 Like everyone else, I'm in the process of evaluating things I want to keep, lose, or change in the New Year. I want to revitalize my blog which has been a little stale so look for some changes. If you have any suggestions please feel free to leave them in the comments!


I want to keep my little party but would definitely like it to grow so if you have friends you want to bring, please do!

Let's see some highlights from last year's last party!



I did one of those "what are the first three words you see" word puzzles and the first word I saw was "peace" so this card from Paper Seedlings definitely caught my eye! Not just because of the word but I love the white on white layering and the detail. Beautiful!


Something I'd like to do more of in 2017 is Thrifting. I love found objects and My Thrift Store Addiction has some wonderful projects and ideas to get you started or re-started! 


If like me, you're still getting organized for the New Year, the gals at Lolly Jane have got you covered with 50 FREE printable 2017 calendars. 

This week's chocolate feature isn't actually chocolate but it's about chocolate! Love this vintage chocolate ad shared by Vintage TLC . Great as a printable or to use in image transfer project etc. 

Now onto this week's party!

BFF Open House Christmas Party !



Apologies for being MIA last week. My computer crashed and I was not able to get a party up . 
Back up and running now so this will be a party only ; no features. Hopefully I didn't lose too many of you!

Wishing you all a Very Merry Christmas and a Happy Hanukkah which also starts this weekend!!

BFF Open House Link Party


Happy Friday Eve all! Hope the first week of October has treated you well. Let's see some festive Fall ideas from last week's party! 




With Halloween just weeks away, Raven Would whipped up this very realistic looking "metal"  cauldron that would be perfect for storing those treats! 


This festive candle from The Crafty Lumberjacks would go perfectly with that cauldron don't you think? 


While not specifically Halloween, Mich in LA has something that could accessorize a costume...perhaps if you were going as "The Mother of Dragons" from "Game of Thrones"?  Plus she always uses something no one can ever guess in her work. 


And whether you have littles or you're just young at heart, these Monster Cups from Western New Yorker would be a fun addition to Halloween entertaining.

The Answer Is Chocolate

Happy Friday Eve all! Apologies for oopsing on last week's party. I have a good excuse though. I got whisked away to Disneyland to celebrate our Anniversary. Had so much fun just the two of us. Not that we didn't miss Phd Boy but two kids at heart on the loose had a great time!  And we got to be there when the park was decorated for Halloween. 


Here are some highlights from the party the week before last!



Let's start with this cute crocheted wreath from Olives and Okra. Perfect for Halloween! Let the countdown begin! 


If you're still getting organized with back to school, this Lolly Jane has a great way to do it with this DIY Wood Caddy

If you're thinking ahead to holiday gifts, you could whip up batches of these glass edged coasters from Love Inspired Details


This week's chocolate features are some treats we enjoyed on our trip! Disney does not disappoint on desserts!


"Darth" Chocolate Mousse at Galactic Grill in Tomorrowland

Chocolate Chip Sundae and Dipped Cone at Gibson Girl Ice Cream on Main Street


Tigger Tails by Marceline's Confectionery


Even though not chocolate, these were the best dessert because our server Kacie at Cafe Orleans treated us to Mickey Beignets to celebrate our Anniversary!



Now, on to this week's party!

The Answer Is Chocolate

Hi everyone and welcome to this week's party. I'm especially grateful to have a creative outlet after events like Orlando last Sunday. Sometimes for me, the only way  through sadness is to sit down and make something. I also want this to be a space where people feel free to share their creativity so thanks for being a part of it. 

Here are some features from last week's party. 


Lynda Creates shared this awesome DIY key and phone holder. Two things I think many of us have challenges keeping track of! 


Woods of Bell Trees shared this beautiful Latte Candle. Even if you don't drink coffee, I think the smell would be fabulous. 


Mich in LA shared a hanging Hamsa Hand amulet. So simple to make and so pretty!


My favorite soft serve ice cream cone is a chocolate and vanilla swirl. These swirl cupcakes from Lou Lou Girls remind me of them and look delish! 

Let's see what you've been up to this week :

BFF Open House Link Party Happy June!

The Answer Is Chocolate

June. JUNE people! How the ... not even going to try. You know that means only 6 months until Christmas and Hanukkah right? Go ahead laugh. And then remember that idea you know we've all had about "I'm going to make my gifts" and look at the calendar again . See? 

OK this week went poof and for the 2nd week in a row will have to skip features. Forgive me!

A Spring cold has come my way so no features today. We'll get right to the party !

Happy Friday Eve all! Hope the week has been kind to you. Really looking forward to a three day weekend next weekend! 

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


Doreen from Altered Artworks finds the best flea market finds and then transforms them into even more fabulous pieces. This vintage sewing box is no exception.  "Sew"  pretty!  I heard you groan. 


Speaking of vintage, all those vinyl albums I once owned are now considered vintage. No I don't feel old at all! Love what Lynda from Lynda Creates did with these to make a very cool display stand. 


In keeping with my coincidental theme of found and altered project features, take a look at this piano stool makeover from Artsy VaVa  that started with a piece of fabric she found at an antique mall. 


I dare you to resist these Reeses Brownies. I know I couldn't. I will never get tired of any peanut butter and chocolate combo! Thanks LouLou Girls

Now on to this week's party!
