BFF Open House

 


Happy Friday Eve Creative Peeps. Hope you've all been having a great week. We continue to get settled in our new home and found some time to update a few thrifted pieces that work with this new aesthetic. Shared how I combined Traditional and Modern Decor with just a little acrylic paint and Rub N Buff! 

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



All the way from The Netherlands, we have these fun earrings from Mooisvanme using mirrored crystals and fiber. Pretty! 


Condo Blues shared a wonderful idea for something I really would like to do, even here in the desert:  a Self Watering Herb Garden! 


July will always be "Harry Potter" month for me and I love how all these years after the series concluded people continue to find ways to come up with new creations inspired by it. For example, these DIY Flying Keys from Creatively Beth

Finally, "When Harry Met Chocolate" to play with a couple of movies. A second HP inspired creation comes from Artsy Fartsy Mama with these Resin Chocolate Frog Earrings. So cute! 


These won't leap away. 

Thanks to all who linked up and now let's see what everyone's been up to this week!

Happy Friday Eve all! By this time next week we'll be stuffed like the turkeys many of us will have just consumed and busy in our workshops or online shopping because the final countdown to Christmas will have begun! Hanukkah starts the Sunday night of Thanksgiving weekend and comes early this year. Everybody panic and freak out! OK, no. Because WE'VE GOT THIS right? We're Creatives, Bakers, Holiday Gift Makers! We are Crafters and Cooks and our work will get looks! Are you fired up and ready to go? GOOD! Let's take a look at some ideas from last week's party! 


If you need one more EASY PEASY piece of decor for your Thanksgiving gathering, printables are the way to go and this one from Building Our Hive is perfect! You could do smaller sizes for each place setting even. And it's available in multiple colors! 


Another quick and easy idea for your Thanksgiving table are these Silverware Wraps from Satsuma Designs. These were designed with kids in mind but no reason they can't be for adults too right? 


I love Gnomes and they're everywhere, especially at Christmas. What's better than a No Sew Gnome?! Check out this one from Condo Blues



Finally, if you already have a chalkboard laying around or you're lucky enough like Lisa to find one at a thrift store, then this idea is for you. Fresh Vintage by Lisa S will show you how to stencil with more than one color to achieve this look! 

OK Chocoholics! We were made for this. Let's get to making!!

Whew! It's another Friday eve already and May is chugging along. It seems like once Memorial Day hits, time goes even faster. Hopefully this year that means at least more time spent with friends and family! Speaking of which, my making time will be a little spotty again for the next little while as we prepare for another move. Confluence of things made it the right time to move closer to my Mom which will be good as we figure out her next chapter. So instead of an hour each way, I'll be about 15 min away. But moving means...cleaning out and packing and that doesn't always leave time for creating right? One step forward to my hope of creating full time. Two steps back. 

OK let's take a look at some of the ideas from last week's party! 




I'm excited I'll have a little porch area so this Reversible Porch Sign from The House On Silverado is great inspiration! 



Speaking of signs, I also love this pretty Herbs Sign from The Apple Street Cottage, an idea that could be used for all kinds of goodies you're growing. 


If you need to come up with some easy storage, crates are your friend and this idea from Condo Blues is a great way to use them! 


Finally, with days getting warmer ( we've already hit at least one triple digit day in the desert) and Summer upon us, what's better than an ice cream sandwich except this Chocolate Chip Cookie Ice Cream Sandwich from 3 Winks Design?! 

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

Happy almost Spring officially! I hope those of you who changed your clocks last weekend have made the adjustment. For me, I'm still getting used to the fact that Arizona doesn't but it still throws me off because now we're the same time as Pacific and 2 vs 1 hour behind Central and back to 3 hours behind Eastern. I'll be confused again in the Fall. Suffice it to say, I stay confused! 

I was up to some jewelry projects this week, making some Coffee themed earrings and a bracelet inspired from the adorable GROGU character from Disney's "The Mandalorian". 

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


Kathleen from Our Hopeful Home created these stunning Chinoiserie Eggs. They are just absolutely perfect!


Equally beautiful is this Easter vignette from Niky at The House on Silverado. You have to see her tutorial for making the seed packets! 


Amy, from Heritage Home Ec shared this beautiful Farmhouse "Wagon Wheel" clock made from...Embroidery Hoops! 



Finally, Faerie Projects are so popular and you can do so many creative things with gardens or projects under glass cloches etc. I am enchanted by this magical door from Condo Blues. A world of imagination awaits behind that door! 

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

Wasn't it just January 1? Normally I'd complain at how fast time is going by but not this year with vaccine rollout ramping up and putting us closer to being able to get back to some of our "normal" lives. So very thankful that my mom has gotten her first dose! Glad to see that things are thawing out in parts of the country that have been frozen and hopefully we won't have any more bad Winter storms. 

Lots of creativity at last week's party so here are a few projects that caught my eye! 


With St. Patrick's Day approaching, here's an easy, fun and inexpensive way to add some festive decor to your home. This is a fun sign from Dollar Tree ( I just bought one myself, coincidentally) decorated with an Irish Jig from Condo Blues!


I also loved this fun Leprechaun Jar idea shared by Creatively Beth. What a fun treat for everyone! 


If your green leans towards the variety of having a green thumb, here's a beautiful vignette from The House on Silverado that's a perfect way to bring some festive St. Patrick's charm to your decor. 




Finally, what's more perfect for St. Patrick's Day dessert than a Chocolate Pistachio Cake? Perfect for Easter and all Spring celebrations as well! From Master Pieces of My Life

Alright creative friends, let's see what you've all  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. 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.
