BFF Open House Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving all! I'm headed into the kitchen so just going to put this party up now and wish you all a fabulous "Gobble Til You Wobble" day. Hope however you're spending it, it's a wonderful day to pause and be thankful. I am thankful to have so many talented creative peeps who share their creations here each week.

BFF Open House Link Party

Happy Friday Eve all! I almost lost track since I'm working in the mornings this week and playing in the afternoons since my son is home for a visit. So you'll forgive me if this is a party only party this week!

Hope everyone's staying cool and dry!

BFF Open House Link Party

Happy Friday Eve once again and can you believe that this one marks eight months until Christmas? Laugh all you want but how many of us think oh we have all this time to make all the handmade gifts we have in our heads and then BAM where did the time go? 

Taking a little vacation break this week so no features. Will  resume next week. Happy Weekend all!

Well, I hope your week is ending better than mine. My laptop decided to be very uncooperative when I most need it for a few things so this week's party will be just party no features since I need to to do this on my phone. 

Here's to the weekend !

BFF Open House Link Party

YIKES! Not just that Christmas is four days away but I forgot my own party! It's been a crazy week. Took it off to spend time w/ family including PhD man (son) who's here for the holidays and instead......came down with the worst cold courtesy of Mr. Chocolate which we have unavoidably passed on to the son and it's just been a lovely hackathon week. How're you all? 

Hopefully you can understand why I'm late w/ the party which we'll just jump right into OK? 

Wishing you all a very Merry ( and healthy) Christmas!!!

Eeeek! (no, not a Halloween post). Between continued unpacking and Monday holidays always throwing me off the rest of the week, I didn't have time to do features this week. Will catch up next week. But that doesn't mean we're not going to have a party so please link up and check out what fellow Chocoholics are sharing!! Happy Friday Eve all!

Happy end of March which seems insane. Then again, this week has been insane and it's not even because of work. In the middle of an inter state move so have had NO time to look at features and even less than no time to make ANYTHING. Will share more soon but for now, I at least want my bloggy creative friends to share what they've been making. This week will be all party, no features. Enjoy!

BFF Open House Spent the Day in the ER Edition

Tis ti season to be siiiick, no fa, no la, and no la la la. Picked up what turns out to be a stomach virus...will spare you the gory details...spent 4 hours in the ER hooked up to fluids to re-hydrate myself. So, no features this week. Straight party. 

Hope everyone is holding up well during this awful flu and bug season. Wash those hands!

Hi all, hope you've had a wonderful Thanksgiving! No features this week ( will resume next week), but having my party for those who may not be out braving Black Friday shopping ( not me!).

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!

We'll just jump right into the party and hope you all have a wonderful weekend!

Happy Friday Eve and especially long weekend Friday Eve! To give you a hint of the kind of week it's been, we're going to skip features this week and jump right to the party. Wishing everyone a long, restful and happy weekend!

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!

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!
