Bloop! It's Friday Eve again already and the week has flown by. Thought a bug was getting me but I think I out ran it. Whew. Just absolutely devastating news about Maui. We celebrate our 32nd Anniversary this month and we spent our honeymoon visiting Oahu, Maui, and Kuai, and have been back to the islands several times over the years. The Lahaina area is filled with a lot of history and was designated a National Historic District. My heart goes out to the families and friends of the 36 people we know have been lost so far.
I hope those of you sending kids back to school are getting through that smoothly. I remember all of the forms and meetings involved.
More wonderful creativity shared at last week's party so let's take a look at a few!
Artsy Va Va shared this great Dragonfly Wooden Canvas featuring Terra Clay Paint!
Speaking of paint, Try It Like It shared how to use Artesprix paint and shaving cream to make these colorful Coasters.
My French Twist shared how to make a pretty and practical Emergency Kit Pouch to keep those little things we need from time to time. This would also work as a cosmetics bag!
The only thing better than a hot fudge sundae is a Hot Fudge Sundae Cake! From Cindy's Online Recipe Box.

Hello and Happy Friday Eve! It's been crazy weather all week with afternoon monsoon performances around me. Thunder, lightning, rain, even when the sun's out, and some beautiful sunsets. Then then next morning it's clear and dry and starts anew.
Hope you've all had a great week. I had a moment Tuesday when I realized Christmas is in FIVE MONTHS!
Let's\ take a look at some of the great ideas from last week's party!
I love my reusable shopping bags and every time I look, there are more fun and pretty ones. Penny's Vintage Home has a great way to use them as Shopping Bag Wall Art!
Steph Creates shared these lovely DIY Terra Cotta Pot Decorations that easily go with any decor.
Harry Potter was a huge part of our son's childhood and if you're familiar with the "Potterverse"you know that July is Harry's Birthday month and bloggers love to celebrate. These Printable Coloring Pages from Creatively Beth are perfect!
Finally, this Chocolate Chip Fudge Muffin Cake from Cindy's Online Recipe Box just speaks for itself! There's a sugar free version too!
Thank you to all who linked up and let's see what you've been up to this week!

Happy Friday Eve and Father's Day Weekend. In dispatches from the "rest home" Mr. Chocolate can walk almost normally now and I got some meds for my back and will start PT next week. Progress!
How we're at the middle of the month already is beyond me but here we are. Let's take a look at some fun Summer ideas from last week's party!
With the outdoor season in full swing, these Outdoor Coasters from Condo Blues are perfect for patios and balconies!
One picture is not enough, but Master Pieces of My Life has a wonderful post filled with Outdoor Dining Tablescapes perfect for Summer.
Summer always seems to be about bags. I think because of more outdoor outings, or camps, or ? These Japanese Knot Bags from A Rose Tinted World are just perfect!
Finally, I love a good play on words as much as a good recipe and Cindy's Online Recipe Box has both with this Red White and Bleu Potato salad!
Thanks to everyone who linked up and can't wait to see what you've been up to this week!

Happy Friday and April Eve,eve! I think people either love April Fool's Day or they hate it. Count me among the latter, but if you love it, I hope your pranks are well met! Can you believe it's April already? March is going out like neither a lion nor a lamb here in the high desert. Windy but sunny.
I've been attending the Crafting Adventure Summit I mentioned a few weeks ago, getting inspiration for some things I want to try and learning more tricks for my Cricut machines. I applaud those who put these on and develop content for them. Truly labors of love and sharing their creative passion.
Finished up my Easter and Passover cards which I'll share next week. Let's take a look at some of the inspiring ideas for these holidays from last week's party!
There's just something about moss bunnies. This collection and Tiered Tray from Penny's Passions is a lovely way to display them!
Another gorgeous Tablescape in Blue (and more moss covered bunnies!) was shared by Bluesky at Home.
You could make a whole garden of these Candy Flower Treats from Whitehouse Crafts.
Finally, Cindy's Online Recipe Box is back with this delicious-looking Flourless Chocolate Cake whch is perfect for Passover since no leavening, for those who are gluten-free, or for any time!
Thank you to everyone who linked up and here's hoping Mother Nature keeps "April Showers" to an appropriate level!

Happy Friday Eve and Happy Spring...officially! Hope everyone had a safe and fun St. Patrick's Day and is easing into Spring without too many allergies. Can't believe we're winding down March already which seemed to just get here.
We're discovering that Tucson is quite the arts city and went to a market last weekend featuring all Tucson artisans only to find out that there's another even bigger market this weekend with vendors from all over!
Spring holidays are upon us with Ramadan having started, Passover and Easter on the horizon. Let's take a look at some Spring ideas from last week's party!
This Spring Picket Fence Bunny from The Apple Street Cottage is just adorable!
This Simple Spring Centerpiece from The House on Silverado is equally perfect for Spring!
If you have a Spring birthday to celebrate, check out this DIY Minnie Mouse Pinata from Simple Joys. So pretty! Easily done as Mickey, too!
Finally, I've never tried a chocolate scone but these look amazing! Chocolate Scones with Chocolate Drizzle from Cindy's Online Recipe Box!

Happy Friday Eve and happy MARCH! Yikes. The transition from January to February never evokes any real emotions for me. But from February to March just seems so seem so much more extreme. Then again, woke up to SNOW in the desert this morning so I'm completely confused about what season it is.
Nothing new to share this week. Weather inconsistencies have my allergies and asthma sucking all of my energy. It's weeks like this that I especially love looking at everyone's creations. So here we go!
Given what's outside my window, this GORGEOUS Deer In a Clearing card from Paper Seedlings is perfect!
Who doesn't love a good Dollar Tree upgrade project? I know I do and this one from Steph Creates is a perfect Winter to Spring transition.
This adorable Leprechaun Selfie Wreath from Creatively Beth is perfect for a St. Patrick's day get-together or perfect for a classroom!
Finally, how perfect for St. Patricks are these Irish Coffee Donuts from Cindy's Online Recipe Box?!

Happy Friday Eve and welcome to another party. I hope your December is off to a great start. We did a weekend getaway to Los Angeles and got to see some incredible decorations. I need to do a post with all of the amazing holiday decor from our Thanksgiving trip to Las Vegas and this past weekend. Finished up decking my halls and really glad I listened to myself and finished making my holiday cards before Thanksgiving so I can get them in the mail this week.
Not surprisingly, you were all busy elves at last week's party, sharing some wonderful holiday inspiration. Let's take a look at a few ideas!
Whether you bake actual Gingerbread Houses or not, Me and My Inklings shared a way to bring Gingerbread to life via Gingerbread House Gift Wrapping! So cute.
Maybe you want to squeeze in a decor makeover before the holidays or right after the New Year starts. Check out these amazing End Table transformations from Birdz of a Feather!
Got corks? Or perhaps you're giving a bottle of wine this season? LOVE these Wine Cork Gnomes from Condo Blues. What a great way to repurpose corks or dress up a bottle!
Finally, if you need a quick cookie to add to your cookie plates, these Brownie Drop Cookies from Cindy's Online Recipe Box are just the ticket!
Thanks to all who linked up and let's take a look at what you've all been up to this week!
