BFF Open House

 


So many Happys this week! Happy March! Happy National Craft Month! Happy Spring! Hopefully the worst of Winter is over and Spring is around the corner. Both exciting and hard to believe that we're already into the third month of the year. Even harder is that it's been a full year of COVID but let's not talk about that except to celebrate that hopefully we're starting to see light at the end of the tunnel. 

OK you creative peeps! So many wonderful ideas shared last week. Here are a few to get you in full Spring mode!




Maybe you have an old piece of silverplate like this stashed away in a cabinet. I know I'm going to look for one next time I get the chance because I love these non-traditional Easter Baskets from Junk Journal. Perfect for any decor from Farmhouse to Contemporary. 


These Paper Butterflies from Priyam at Simple Joys just scream Spring don't they? Perfect for everything from garlands to package toppers. 





Linda, from Paper Seedlings made this adorable Name Sign for her grandson Enzo, whose name I love. I think it's such an adorable keepsake to treasure! 


Is it a Donut? Is it a Cake? It's a Giant Chocolate Fudge Brownie  Donut Cake! Perfect for St. Patrick's Day, a Spring shower (as in baby or bridal) or anytime! From Cindy's Online Recipe Box



Finally, this one hits home. Trinidadian Pepper Sauce from Kiku Corner. I grew up with this. There was always a jar of this on the table in my family's and extended family's homes. It was often a bit of a trick test when new people said they liked spicy food. We would watch as people took too much (after being warned) and then they proceeded to melt. Literally. This is extra special to me because the recipes my family had were never written down. There were always promises to but the elders were not so good at following through and the last person who could have shared, we've lost to dementia. So this is extra special to me. 

Alright! Let's see what you've all been up to this week and as always, thank you to everyone who linked up!

BFF Open House


Welp. August is both flying by and standing still like the rest of 2020. Hope you've all had a wonderful and creative week. I've been working on some Halloween stuff, trying to get ahead of things this year since I have some more time on my hands. 

Let's take a look at some of the wonderful ideas shared at last week's party! 


Card making remains my first love and like Antonella from White House Crafts, I love finding and using 12x12 pads which usually contain a few pages of panels you can use as the focals of your cards. Mr. Chocolate won't believe him if I say I don't have this cute collection in my collection and need to remedy that! 



Eccentricities by JVG shared how to make a pretty and practical Diffuser Bracelet. These work w/ body heat to release scent and can be used w/ essential oils. 

Southern Sunflowers shared a wonderful makeover of a box sign thrifty find and is also sharing the printable she made and used!

Finally, Cindy's Online Recipe Box shared this adult version of a banana split via this Frozen Banana Split Cocktail. Oh my! 

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

Happy Friday Eve all! Tomorrow is Friday right? Having completed my first month of retirement, I can see how people lose track of the days! Not complaining though! Hope you all survived another week safely and creatively. I am having so much fun continuing to explore all of the possibilities of Quilling. My most recent project is here: Quilled Monogram . Now, let's see what you've been up to this week! 


Hannah from Handmade  Weekly shared something that's timely for me : Candle Making for Beginners. We love candles but they get expensive so I've been thinking about making my own. 


Lisa from Condo Blues shared how to re-purpose aluminum cans into pendants that can go on a necklace. There are so many drinks out that come in pretty cans, the possibilities are endless !


With so many of us still hunkering down at home, Summer camping may not be on the calendar this year but The House on Silverado has a wonderful idea for a camping dinner ( I think this qualifies as "glamping" ) at home including Toasted S'Mores Martinis for dessert. 


Finally, Cindy's Online Recipe Box is back with one of my favorite combinations: Chocolate and Coconut in her Almond Joy Cupcakes! Oh yes please!

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

Happy Friday Eve all! Hope you've had a great week. Unfortunately, here in the desert we continue to spike in COVID cases, now leading the nation which is not a goal I think we ever wanted to achieve :(
Needless to say, sticking close to home which means more creative time. My most recent project and new addiction is here: New Addiction Modern Quilling

Let's take a look at some ideas from last week's party! 


Unique Creations by Anita shared this FABULOUS Steampunk Lamp. So cool for an Industrial look or accent piece. I've seen similar pieces at Art Fairs for a lot of money so being able to make your own is wonderful using assorted plumbing pieces and ephemera in your stash. 


If you can't get to the beach, maybe you have some shells around the house or can order some online to bring a little of the beach inside like Lisa from Fresh Vintage by Lisa S did. The combination with succulents is indeed a fresh take! 


This Exfoliating Whipped Soap from Eccentricities by JVG looks good enough to eat ( so if you have littles in the house you might want to put out of reach!). Make a batch for yourself or what great gifts they'd make. 

I can't get this picture bigger w/out getting it blurry but couldn't resist featuring this Snickers Martini from Cindy's Online Recipe Box. This is definitely meant to be consumed! 

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

Happy Friday Eve all. Hope you've had a good week. We continue to spike in COVID cases here so I guess I'll be making a few more masks since we continue to not go out very much. Frustrating to say the least how few people continue to take this seriously. Anyway, let's take a look at some ideas shared last week!


Let's start with this very chic and easy pillow shared by Lisa from Fresh Vintage by LisaS using a Kitchen Towel she bought online! 


Since we're all spending more time at home these days, this colorful patio makeover idea from Hannah at Handmade Weekly caught my eye. 


With Father's Day coming up, Lou Lou Girls has a great roundup of ideas for Father's Day, some traditional and non-traditional !

Finally, and wouldn't this make a fun Father's Day dessert, Cindy's On Line Recipe Box shared this :


Giant Fudge Chocolate Brownie Donut Cake! Yes please!

Happy Friday Eve all. Thanks for all of your supportive comments last week. There was a huge work project that was not going as smoothly as the people who dreamed it up thought it was going to go. This week's been a bit quieter :) 

Here are some ideas from last week's party! 



If you're looking to add to your outdoor decor (or this could work for inside as well) South House Designs has a fabulous tutorial on how to DIY Cement Bird Baths using all kinds of things you may have in your stash, or around the house! 



Sharing some more mask ideas from Sew Crafty Crochet and I absolutely love this choice of fun fabrics! 


Speaking of sewing, Condo Blues shared this very timely post on Sewing Tips and Tricks. My skills are limited but I have been cranking out masks. At least I was until my machine said "um no" and my new one arrives tomorrow so I'll be referring to these to make sure I take great care of it! 


Finally, for weeks like last week especially, or anytime, I think I need one of these Chocolate Nutty Fudge Martinis from Cindy's Online Recipe Box

Wishing you all a nice long Memorial Day weekend and remembering those who have made the ultimate sacrifice in service of the country.
