BFF Open House Link Party #43 Wrap Up and Features

Before I jump into the features, I am remiss in welcoming and thanking new followers. I don’t obsess over numbers but I also do want to acknowledge that I’ve seen the number of people following increase and am really excited and honored to have you!

Thanks again for another great party. So many great ideas and here are just a few projects that caught my eye!

I am smitten by bottle lamps, even though I haven’t yet attempted one. I’ve seen them in Ballard and PB catalogs, and in stores. Intrepid DIYers have tackled these and done so brilliantly!

Bethany, from Pitter and Glink shared this stunning mercury glass etched lamp:

And Kathleen from Charm Bracelet Diva shared the amazing find she picked up at Goodwill and transformed into another gorgeous bottle lamp:

Coincidentally, there was another inspiring pair of projects linked up…bright and brilliant bulletin boards:

The first from Michele at The Scrap Shoppe:

Talk about a transformation!

And Mel, the Crafty Scientist shared this beautiful quatrefoil bulletin board:

Finally, I love this idea from Sarah at Alderberry Hill. She has a multi purpose twig tree  that she decorates for whatever occasion…in this case an ab fab birthday party she threw for her daughter!

Isn’t it fun?!

Hope you all have a great and creative week!

BFF Open House Link Party #43 and BFF LoopyLoop Creations!

MARCH?! Just sayin’. But that does mean it’s National Craft Month and I know lots of my favorite crafting companies have fun things in store.

This week I’d like to introduce you to BFF Donna and her blog LoopyLoop Creations. Donna is a busy lady! Works full time, has two kiddos, engaged, and soon to be mom to three more! Naturally since she wasn’t busy enough she decided to start blogging.

I love this yard sale makeover  she did that now hangs in her bathroom:

Total cost of $2. A great way to enhance a room, and a reason to indulge in some of those yummy fat quarter fabrics I’m always looking at at Jo Ann’s. Gotta give this a try.

Donna’s ready for Spring with this adorable pinwheel wreath:

Think of all of the color combination possibilities although I think she’s got a great one right here!

And I think I have found a perfect no sew solution for a window treatment for my office:
Strips of ripped broadcloth! A great shabby but oh so chic look.

I hope you’ll go and visit Donna and check out the yummy recipes and other great projects she has to share!

So now, what has everyone been up to this week? Rules are simple. If you made it, link it . Recipes, paper crafts, jewelry, thrift-over , upcycle, DIY, you name it. Please link to your specific post and not your general blog and no advertising or shops. Party On!
