BFF Open House. On Time and With Features!

 


Happy Friday Eve all, and Happy Mother's Day Weekend to all celebrating. I hope you've all had a wonderful week. My mom is doing great and so very happy to be home. 

I'm determined this year, to start holiday crafting as early as I plan to start holiday crafting each year so don't be surprised if you see some out of season things early because in order not to forget and post them DURING the season, I'm going to try and do them as I make them. 

Let's see some of the fun inspiration from last week's party. Thank you for all of the support and kind comments last week! 


Crazy Little Lovebirds shared these pretty and practical DIY Mushroom Pin Cushions made from recycled jars! 


Steph Creates has yet another amazing creation from simple materials with this DIY Spring Wood Riser


Hunny I'm Home has a FUN collection of Farmouse Kitchen Printables you need to check out. 


Finally, Cindy's Online Recipe Box shared these decadent Butterscotch Swirl Brownie Cookie Bars. Enough said! 

Thank you to everyone who linked up and can't wait to see what you've been up to this week!

Happy Friday Eve already again! Time's been going by even faster with driving back and forth to the hospital and now rehab center where my mom was released to this past weekend. Thank you for the well wishes last week. She's doing well. She's teeny tiny so getting her back to full strength has been the focus. As I've told the staff and she's made very clear, she's "highly motivated" to get sprung. 

I shared something I made for my newest "Fairy Grandbaby" who's due next month: Musical Monogram

Lots of fun inspiration to look at from last week's party so let's take a look at a few ideas! But can I scare you first? Today marks eight months until Christmas. Just sayin'!


Darcy and Brian shared a great project for Mother's Day or a Teacher Gift in this Tissue Paper Frame.


Steph Creates shared another incredible Dollar Tree hack with this Upcycled Tin Container Solar Light.

Simple Joys shared how to make Mini Pinatas (I can never get the tilde to appear) which are perfect with Cinco de Mayo approaching or just because. 


And finally, since Passover continues here is a fabulous Matzo Meal Brownie recipe from Cindy's Online Recipe Box that can be made now or any time! Matzo also comes gluten-free. 

Thanks to everyone who linked up and can't wait to see this week's creativity!

Happy Friday Eve. Happy Easter Weekend. Happy End of March?! YIKES. I dunno about you but I absolutely HATE April Fool's Day pranks so Monday will not be my favorite day. We have enough real pranks going on! 

Anyone else dealing with allergies? Or should I ask if there's anyone NOT dealing with them? 

This week I shared the Faux Chocolate Bunny Easter Cards I made for family and friends. No calories! 

Here are some of the features from last week's party which, if you're still looking for last-minute ideas, fit the bill (or to Pin for next year)!



Dollar Tree always has these Faux Tin Tiles in stock and Fresh Vintage by Lisa S showed how to make a Faux Tin Tile Bunny


Another fun Dollar Tree idea came from Hunny I'm Home DIY with this Beaded Bunny Wreath


If you're looking to bring Spring Flowers inside (without allergens!) then Serenity You has you covered with a great roundup of Spring Paper Flower Craft Ideas


Finally, transform Carrott Cake into an adult beverage with this Easter Cocktail from Cindy's Online Recipe Exchange: Carrot Cake Shooters! 

Thanks to ALL who linked up and wishing everyone a wonderful weekend, whatever you're doing or celebrating!

Happy second week of January Creative Peeps. I hope that the month and the year are getting off to a good start. I have several January birthdays/anniversaries so have thus far made several cards and looking forward to getting started on some Valentine's projects. I'm also super excited that late January / February brings Tucson Bead and Gem season and hope I'm less overwhelmed than last year. There are HUGE venues aound town and I'm torn between going to those I got to last year and those I didn't. 

I hope that those of you dealing with severe weather (which seems to be everywhere) are faring well. When you wake up in Souther AZ to 28 degrees...YIKES! 

You've been busy getting 2024 off to a creative start so let's take a look at some wonderful projects. 


Steph Creates transformed a metal can into a beautiful Shabby Chic Keepsake. Perfect for Valentine's / Galentine's or just because. 



House feeling bare after the holidays? Ann's Entitled Life has a beautiful Winter Pear and Floral Centerpiece that can fill the void! 


A Ray of Sunlight shared this STUNNING furniture makeover using Black Chalk Paint. LOVE!!

Big, chewy, cookies remain popular. Cindy's Online Recipe Box shows you how you can make these Dark Chocolate Espresso Chip Cookies at home! 


Thank you to everyone who linked up, first timers and regulars alike. Now let's see what you've been up to this week!

Happy Friday Eve, all and how is it time for another party already? It feels like the last one just started! Time is flying by and we have ELEVEN days left til Christmas! PLENTY of time for more Elfing, right?

This week I shared a fabulous thrifty find I turned into a Christmas Vignette:


along with an "old" canvas I repurposed into a Textured Winter Painting:


You all shared some wonderful projects last week so let's take a look at a few.





I had so much fun making my own paper bag snowflakes/stars. Imagine my great honor and surprised to be mentioned in a post by Fresh Vintage by Lisa S when she not only shared hers, but also added Book Page Snowflakes/Stars



Sonata Home Design shared a great tutorial on how to make one of my favorites: A bold Statement Ornament Wreath using pool noodles! 



Creatively Beth shared this adorable Polymer Clay Gingerbread Man that can be used for so many things from a keychain to a package topper. 


Finally, Cindy's Online Recipe Box shared these Hot Cocoa Marshmallow Cookies with Silver non-pareils.

Happy Friday Eve all and can you believe it's exactly TWO WEEKS until American Thanksgiving?! I can't. It is. No!

I had fun this week with a couple of projects to switch up my Thanksgiving decor. I shared Tissue Paper Covered Pumpkins and Paint Pour Pumpkins and busy finishing up my Thanksgiving Cards. This is the time of year I'm at my most creative and tend to have more ideas than time. Wouldn't it make so much sense for me to write them all down and work on them throughout the year? Yes. Do I do that? No. Am I going to try to do that for 2024...we shall see!

You all are busy makers so let's take a look at some of the great ideas shared at last week's party! 


If you're hosting and want to add some new napkin rings to your table, check out these DIY Napkin Rings from Try It Like It


Two Chicks and a Mom shared an easy-to-make Thanksgiving Banner complete with free printables! 


As always Creatively Beth has a festive craft perfect for a Thanksgiving table or as a craft to keep people entertained while the cooking's going on! How cute are these Clothespin Turkeys?


Finally, if you're looking for a new adult beverage for the season, this Caramel Apple Pie Martini from Cindy's Online Recipe Box is absolutely perfect! 

Thank you to everyone who linked up and can't wait to see what you've been up to this week!
