BFF Open House

 


Happy Friday Eve, Happy Mothers' Day Weekend, Happy May! Once May rolls around, the already fast moving year seems to speed up doesn't it? Schools let out, graduations start, Summer's upon us. Summer's already upon us here in the desert and I'm still never going to get used to wearing shorts in April. You can take the girl out of the Pacific Northwest but she'll still think shorts don't start until July. 

Hope you've all had a wonderful week and thanks for understanding my technical difficulties last week. I did manage to get Mother's Day cards made and sent to friends and family. I remain obsessed with layered cut files. 

Some really creative ideas that caught my eye from last week's almost didn't happen party so let's take a look. 


If you're in need of a last-minute Mother's Day gift or just want to brighten up your own kitchen, these Boho Flour Sack Towels from Creatively Beth will do the trick! So cute. 



Spring is a time to refresh and renew which is exactly what Junk Is My Life did with a foot stool she found. Stunning transformation! 



If however, you don't want or need to re-upholster, how about paint? Artsy VaVa did just that with this equally beautiful transformation! 


Finally, whether for a special Mom or just because, this Glazed Chocolate Chip Toffee Coffee Cake from Cindy's Online Recipe Box is sure to brighten someone's day. Including your own! 

Wishing everyone celebrating Mother's Day this weekend a very happy one! 

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

Happy Friday Eve and almost the middle of March! Our big girl is on the mend and back to her usual self and looking forward to getting her stitches out on Monday. Found a little time this week to whip up a super easy St. Patrick's Day vignette thanks to Target and Dollar Tree. 

There were also some great ideas shared at last week's party so let's take a look at a few of them! 



This St. Patrick's Day Frame Wreath from Masterpieces of My Life is just stunning isn't it?! 



These Denim Flowers from The Apple Street Cottage are "green" in the sense of being re-purposed. So fun and easy to make and you could easily add a green bead or charm to wear for St. Patrick's Day but they go with literally EVERYTHING! 


If you want a fun snack for St. Patrick's Day, these Shamrock Pretzels from Drugstore Divas are perfect! 





Finally, if you want a spectacular finish to a St. Patrick's Day dinner, look no further than this amazing Irish Cream Mocha Layer Cake from Cindy's Online Recipe Box! Slainte! 

As always, thanks to everyone who linked up and can't wait to see what you've been up to this week!

Happy Friday Eve Creative Peeps! How is it the end of February already and not to alarm you but Friday marks ten months until Christmas. That might seem like forever but watch how fast it flies by! 

I haven't made anything worth sharing this week but I did spend the week attending a wonderful workshop hosted by Abbi Kirsten called Cricut Craft Fest. Lots of inspiring projects and met some talented new Creatives. 

et's take a look at some of the inspiring ideas from last week's party and can't wait to see what you all have been up to this week! 




I hand deliver some of the cards I love to make and hadn't really thought about adding a postage stamp to the envelope but what a great way to make them even more special with these Art Paper Postage Stamps from Createarie !


Makeable Crafts shared a green and great way to change out some Wall Art by making over a piece you may already have or finding a great clearance deal or thrifty find. I know I've found some things I've found that are less expensive to buy and makeover than buy the supplies to make from scratch! 


How perfect for Spring is this adorable Gnome painting from Love My Little Cottage? It's easier than you think with a template included in the post! 



Finally, pretend you're sitting at a Paris cafe with these easy to make Chocolate Croissants using frozen puff pastry. YUM! From Cindy's Online Recipe Box. Bon Appetit!

Off to this week's party and thanks to ALL who link up and share your creations here!

Happy Friday Eve all! How are we already past the middle of January? Time is a trickster. One minute it seems like something that happened 10 years ago you think of as five. The next, the present flies by in a rush. I stay with the Dori mantra from "Finding Nemo": "Just keep swimming..."

Had fun making decorations for what has become my year round celebration tree which I shared in this post: Valentine's Decor: The Year Round Tree.  I was also excited to be featured in one of Hometalk's newsletters this week with this post: Valentine's Lanterns. If you're not a member of Hometalk (or their sister sites Upstyle Daily and Foodtalk) you should be! Lots of inspiration and even better, very informative and helpful support for bloggers! 

Lots of wonderful projects shared at last week's party as always, so let's take a look at a few!


Junk Journal shared this great Goodwill find and transformation into a wonderful sign! 


With Valentine's approaching, whip up a bunch of these GORGEOUS hearts shared by Crafts A La Mode. Did I mention they hold a little treat? 

Whether you're looking for an alternative to candy or just trying to be more organized, these Magnetic Sticky Note Holders from Keeping It Real are easy to make! 



Finally, if you need a decadent dessert idea for Valentine's Day (or anytime) you have to check out these Dark Chocolate Butterfinger Brownies with Butterfinger Frosting from Cindy's Online Recipe Box

Thank you to everyone who linked up and let's see what you've been up to this week!

Happy New Year's Eve Eve everyone! Can you believe we're about to say goodbye to 2021?! Or is it still 2020...some days it's hard to tell. I hope everyone who celebrated Christmas had a wonderful holiday. Santa Hubs was very good to me and I am now the proud owner of a Cricut Maker 3!!! I haven't unboxed it yet because I remain being lazy and enjoying time w/ my son but soon! I cannot wait to play with it. 

NYE has never been a big deal in our house. Aside from the first year we were married, we've never gone out and basically celebrate at midnight East coast time because we're usually asleep by midnight unless we set an alarm. I hope everyone is safe and above all healthy this New Year's Eve. 

Light party last week given the timing, but some great ideas that could be done for tomorrow night! 


I love potatoes. LOVE. When I lived in Denmark, the joke among my fellow students about living with our host families was not IF we were having potatoes but what kind every night for dinner. Fine by me! These Melting Potatoes from The Lou Lou Girls are on my list to make! YUM. 



If you are hosting a NYE or New Year's Day event, a dessert open house is a great idea. This post from Scratch Made Food has some "food for thought". 


Pots and Planes shared this amazing Salted Chocolate Bark which looks amazing! More than enough time to whip up a batch. 


Finally, wrap up the old year and wash things down with a White Chocolate Eggnog Cocktail from Cindy's Online Recipe Box


Well...that's a wrap for 2021 link parties. I'd like to thank you all for spending time here at my place this year and hope to see all of you back in 2022!

Happy Friday Eve and Hallo-weekend! We may actually get a few trick or treaters for the first time in forever so anxious to see. Is everyone ready? More wonderful ideas shared at last week's party. There may not be time to make but definitely there's time to pin for next year! 

Shared my 2021 Halloween cards here. OK let's take a look at some of the ideas from last week's party! 

Wishing everyone a safe and Happy Halloween! 



How cute is this Halloween Gingerbread House from Saved From Salvage?! I planned on making one this year but definitely saving this for next year! The Cheez-It roof is brilliant!

If you're going to "BOO" your neighbors or friends or have a gift to give, this adorable bag from I Teach Stamping is perfect! 


And if you need a card to go with your gift bag on with Thanksgiving coming, this one from Paper Seedlings just screams Fall! 



Finally, if you are looking for one more treat for your Hallo-Weekend dessert table, check out these Marshmallow Cream Filled Coffin Cupcakes from Cindy's Online Recipe Box

Have a BOOtiful weekend all!

Happy Friday Eve all. We are officially within the two week window countdown to Halloween if you can believe it. It's finally feeling like Fall here in the desert getting down to the low 70s even 60s.  Love it. Lots of inspiring ideas shared at last week's party with still enough time to try so let's take a look at a few!


This Skull themed tablescape from Whispers of the Heart is right in my style wheelhouse! Love the elegance of the black and white with the pops of purple! 



A dollar store pumpkin and flowers and some woven spider fabric combine to make this easy and pretty Halloween Pumpkin! From The Apple Street Cottage



This piece of Halloween gorgeousness started out as a child's dollhouse! I'd been looking for one to turn into a haunted house but I think I started too late this season. What a gorgeous transformation! From Studio 27 by Jennifer Adams!


Tis the season for all things pumpkin so definitely put these Baked Chocolate Pumpkin Swirl donuts on your list of recipes to try. From Cindy's Online Recipe Box!

Thank you as always to all who linked up!

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