BFF Open House

 


Happy Friday Eve all! I hope everyone who celebrated Mother's Day had a very happy one. Mr. Chocolate made me a lovely breakfast, I had a great call from my son who was holed up with COVID, and made The Mumster a special dinner. The best news of the week is that as of today, our son tested negative for COVID and so glad he was vaxxed and boosted. Whew! 

I'm working on a very special project I'm not ready to share yet but just a heads up that I probably won't be creating much over the next several weeks. Not that I've been doing tons lately anyway but still...

Lots of fun things shared at last week's party so let's take a look at some fun projects. 


Who did string art as a kid? I had fun doing it with scraps of wood and did a piece a couple of years ago at a DIY studio. Creatively Beth is back with a wonderful and fun way to do it to make a card! Who wouldn't like to receive something this cute? 


I always worry that no one shares my macabre sense of humor and then someone like Wendy from My French Twist comes along and lets me know I'm not alone. You may remember I found some creepy doll heads last Halloween so it shouldn't surprise you that this cracked me up and I had to share! 


Artsy VaVa is back with another fabulous makeover. This time of a footed Sewing Box. This would make such a great storage addition to any room! 


Finally, Nutella? Check. Banana? Check. Beautiful Yeast Bread? Check Check Check. From Treat and Trick. This is both beautiful and one of my favorite flavor profiles! 

Wishing you all a peaceful and happy weekend and can't wait to see all of the creativity you've been up to this week!

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 all. Big weekend ahead for everyone celebrating Passover which starts tomorrow, and Easter. Spring is humming happily along. Next up we'll be preparing for Mother's Day, Graduations, etc. Hope you've all had a great week. I know there have been some crazy weather swings. Saw a hail storm in Seattle and my son told me it was like the Wizard of Oz in his neck of the woods. 

Here are a few of the amazing and inspiring projects that caught my eye from last week's part! 



How cute are these Bunny and Chick Beanbags from Creatively Beth?! These are huggable size. 


I love paper flowers and they can be used for so many different things. Love this pretty Spring Wreath from Crafts a la Mode


One of the easiest and most inexpensive ways to change up your decor is making a DIY Canvas like this one from Studio 27. All of the craft stores have stock up sales throughout the year and I make sure to do so! Paint and vinyl and instant wall art! 


Confession: I am not a Sushi fan. Want to be. Have tried to be. Just can't. Our son loves it, as does everyone we know it seems. But Oreo Sushi? Now, this has my name on it! From Drugstore Divas

Thank you to EVERYONE who linked up and WELCOME to first-timers. 

Now let's see what you've all been up to this week! Again, whatever you may be celebrating this weekend, Happy Happy!

Happy Friday Eve all! Survived April Fool's Day without falling for anything...woo hoo! Wish I was surviving allergies as well but I think switching up meds is helping but I did scare someone in the grocery store parking lot with a loud sneeze! 

I hope you've all had a great week and are enjoying Spring. A week from Friday begins Passover and then Easter is that Sunday so next week is a busy one with lots of preparation. 

I had a lot of fun making a gift for one of my younger cousins who's expecting a baby this month. You can see it here: Layered Rose Monogram and Coordinating Baby Card

More wonderful ideas shared at last week's party so let's take a look at a few. 



Artsy VaVa shared the cutest Bunny Trail sign done with perfect vintage aging! 




Creatively Beth shared this gorgeous Watercolor Bunny that is so cute! 


Looks like another trip to Dollar Tree for me because I didn't see these little houses last time I was there are they are too cute! From Life As A LEO Wife!


Finally, if you're looking for something amazing to add to your Easter table, you can't go wrong with these Blueberry Buttermilk Scones from Claire Justine!

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

Happy Friday Eve all and Happy St. Patrick's Day! Whether you're drinking green beer, eating corned beef and cabbage, making Colcannon or not doing much of anything at all, hope it comes with a bit o'luck. I also hope that all of you who endured the time change this week are adjusted by now. On the one hand, it's nice here in Arizona that most of the state doesn't change. On the other, it's confusing to remember what time it is everywhere else, especially Pacific since for half of the year we are on the same time and the other half we're an hour ahead. 

And now, we fast forward into Spring, Easter, SprEaster? Lots of great ideas shared last week so let's take a look at a few!



This adorable Carrot Wreath from Creatively Beth is so perfect for Easter Decor but it's also perfectly timed since I have a project using these exact same carrots being featured in today's Hometalk Newsletter! Great minds Beth! 


Who says chicken wire is just for coops? Not creative thinkers! This Chicken Wire Cloche from Junk Is My Life is a perfect display vessel for Easter and Spring decor! 


With Easter and Passover coming up or any Spring gathering, this modern tablescape from Whispers of the Heart is crisp, bright, and fresh! 


Finally, these Black Bottom Cupcakes from The Kitchen Is My Playground are...YUM! Perfect for ANY occasion. 

Be safe, Be well. Be Creative!

Happy Friday Eve all! This week's been a blur since I had a couple of procedures this week and glad they're OVER! Hoping that's it for me and Mayo clinic this year. We're in the final countdown to Halloween and then it always seems like the rest of the year goes by in a flash. Let's take a look at some of the great Halloween themed ideas from last week's party. 

I'm envious of this fabulous find and transformation shared by Penny's Vintage Home. If you're ever lucky enough to find an "old rusty 5 gallon gas can" look at the gorgeousness you can create with it like this Jack O'Lantern transformation! So cute! I also love the vintage Halloween dolls. Did I mention there's a festive fall cocktail recipe in the same post? 



 While not Halloween per se, I could not get over these incredible Crocheted Lampshades from Howling Liz. Crocheted! Aren't they amazing?! I could not believe they were crocheted. Still can't!


If you need a costume idea for yourself or a little one, it doesn't get any easier than this no sew Woodland Deer Felt Mask from Creatively Beth. Adorable! 



Finally, if you are a Candy Corn lover then you want to check out this post from The Kitchen Is My Playground because Tracey has the details on how to make your own! No need to wait for it to be in season anymore, and since it's made in your own kitchen, you can make it any color combo you want for any season! 

Once again, thanks to all who linked up and can't wait to see what you've all been up to this week!

Happy Friday Eve all! It's monsoon season here in the desert so we've had muggy ( for us ) days and stormy nights with lots of lightning shows and thunder. It's a crazy Summer all around and I hope that you're all managing to stay cool and safe. 

This week I shared my Coffee Filter Flower tutorial for those of you who may not have seen and been on the lookout for it! 

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


Popsicles scream Summer and if you need a Summer card, you can't go wrong with this idea from Linda at Paper Seedlings. Looks good enough to eat! 



It's never to early to start making Christmas Ornaments either for your own tree or as gifts. Apple Street Cottage has a simple way to do so using polymer clay and an embossing folder. Genius! 


As much as July has become "Christmas in July" month, it's also an ongoing celebration of Harry Potter in honor of Harry's birthday. This Deathly Hallows pillow from Creatively Beth is so cool ! 



Finally, what's better on a hot Summer day than some ice cream? How about Chocolate Pomegranate ice cream from Morsels of Life? Yum! 


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