BFF Open House Oops!


Happy first day of July and Happy Friday. Our move is complete ( except for the unpacking fun but I have my kitchen mostly set up) and with wrapping up some things at our former location I forgot my own party! This will hopefully be the last week w/out features. If I said that last week, chalk it up to aggressive optimism! 


Apologies for the delay and let's get right to it! Wishing everyone a safe Fourth.

BFF Open House

 


Whew! Happy Friday Eve all. Hope your week is going well. It's been busy on this end and we're about 3/4 of the way done w/ our move with the remaining portion early next week. Then of course there's the other side of unpacking, figuring out places for things to go, assessing what needs making over to fit with a different style house than we've had before, etc. etc. So many ideas are swirling, it's non-stop. All of our stuff works but I want to change up some accent pieces so I'll have no shortage of projects.  Here's one quick pic of my current state of disaster but once we're there full time it will get sorted quickly. 



Mr. Chocolate's comment: "That's a whole Michael's Store in that closet". Not really. There's JoAnn's too. 

One more week of no features and than you for the supportive comments last week and for understanding. You all are the BEST! 

OK let's see what you've all been up to since I'm not even sure what supplies are where!

BFF Open House : No Features This Week

 

Happy Mid June / Pride Month / Friday Eve. No features this week.  I alluded to something a few weeks ago and that something is we're moving and I'm worn out! 

You'd think we'd be pros at this having moved from Seattle 4 years ago and then again within Arizona last year. When we moved states, we weren't sure where we wanted to BE in AZ so we leased a house to get a feel for where we wanted to be.  Welp, COVID hit and that delayed things. We loved the area we were in and the woman who owned the house was lovely and wanted to sell it to us which we briefly considered but while it was beautiful on the outside and the property was great, it was older and as we lived in it discovered how much work it needed in addition to updates inside. We didn't blame her when she decided to put it on the market last year since it was on fire. But timing is everything and I ended up in the hospital around the same time and Mr. Chocolate found us another place because we still hadn't looked for our forever home. 

We finally had a chance to do that this year, found a home we LOVE, bought, and are in the process of moving to.

The biggest surprise has been Mr. Chocolate wanting me to make over some things we have because he isn't by nature one who envisions those things and has resisted that idea before so after we get settled, prepare for some fun projects. We also have lots of wall space to decorate and he's requested some DIY art. I'll be busy! 

But for now, in between 2 houses for a bit, and with packing to finish, it's just a party this week.

BFF Open House "What Day Is It" Edition

 


Happy Friday. I think. Not as in I'm questioning the Happy part, but the Friday part because I've lost the plot. Between attempting to play tech support for my Mom, and then joy oh joy, ending up with my own technical malfunctions resulting in me having to reset a bunch of things, missed my own party planning, feature selecting, scheduling time. So...all party / no features and late! 

I can't believe it's the end of April already. Mother's day is around the corner and before we know it for those of you with littles, Summer break will be here. YIKES! 

Let's see what everyone's been up to and apologies!!!

BFF Open House Almost Didn't Happen Party

 


Yikes! Happy March. Almost missed my own party. Been a busy week since our big furbaby had to have some surgery this week and it's been a bit like having an infant again with no sleep. So no features this week, just party. My creative endeavors this week were limited to a thank you card for the Veterinarian. 



Here we go!

Hi all and Happy Friday Eve. Thanks for all the well wishes and thoughts last week. Surgery went well and recovery is going OK. Glad to have had some other life stressors put on pause for the time being. Definitely listening to the medical team and not getting ahead of myself or trying to be Superwoman. She's on indefinite vacation. 


This is going to be another week of all party no features! Wishing those of you who are in the throes of back to school whether as teachers, parents, or both, safety above all!!

Happy Friday Eve all! This will be a week where it's "all party / no features" since it's been a crazy week and by the time this posts, I'll have had some surgery today. Best laid plains of having had this scheduled with features all done and all that...

So...party ON!

Whew!!! Our move is OVER! Woo hoo! And my new office is coming together so cannot wait to be able to start playing again. 

Keeping things short and skipping features this week because I'm wiped OUT. Wishing everyone a safe and happy LONG weekend.

BFF Open House

 


Hello and Happy Friday Eve to all my "Chocoholics"! I hope everyone's had a great week. Mine has been one of those "life is what happens when you're busy making other plans" weeks. Actually a couple. The Mumster (aka my Mom) took a fall last week and ended up in the hospital. The good news is, it wasn't as bad as it could have been and she has been home since Saturday. I've been staying with her to help get her back up to full strength, so haven't been doing any making. As such, this will be a week where there aren't any features. 

I will take a moment, especially for those of you who are younger, to issue a PSA that it's never too soon to have conversations with your parents about finances, decisions, directives etc. If COVID year has taught us anything it's "we don't know what we don't know" so ASK and discuss! You and they will have better peace of mind. 

OK end of PSA and party on my Creative Peeps! Thanks for understanding!

I debated whether to put this up today. There's so much pain in the country and I am not immune to it nor would I hope is anyone.  I try very hard to keep this space limited to creativity and the celebration of it. But today is not that day. So I'm going to have the party because for me creativity is healing and the place I turn to when I'm hurting, but I'm not going to have features this week.

Is it Friday night yet? Asking for a very exhausted party host because it's been a week from down under and I don't mean Australia. Therefore, all party, no features this week. I hope all the Moms had a lovely Mother's Day!

Hi all. Hope you've made it through the week as well as can be expected these days. Our big excitement was finding TP and paper towel during our weekly foraging this week. 

Once again, I have to apologize. The week's been busy workwise w/ a lot of changes so it's going to be another featureless party. I probably need to think about doing this on a different day. 

Pull up a chair, sit down w/ your favorite quarantine drink and snack and party on! Be well friends!
