Happy Friday Eve Creative Peeps! I hope you've had a good and creative week. It's been COLD here in the desert. Woke up to 24 degrees and SNOW the other day which for some of you may be nothing but is not the norm around here. Haven't been up to much creatively since I've been busy getting my mom moved to a new apartment but she's all set now so back to it. 

Looking VERY forward to being able to attend some of the amazing annual Jewelry and Gem events in Tucson next week. I've long wanted to go and now, living nearby, I finally get the chance. You can't imagine how HUGE some of them are. They've been setting up the exhibition tents for weeks now and it's like mini county fairs in several places. I think I'm going to have to pick one or two and not attempt to go to all of them. 

You've been busy as always so let's take a look at some of the projects you shared.


Have some old jeans in your closet (or places like Goodwill are a great source)? These embroidered Denim Hearts from The Apple Street Cottage are a wonderful way to repurpose them and make lovely Valentine's gifts! 


This DIY Cutting Board from Steph Creates is such a sweet Valentine's accent piece to make! 



I've always loved movies and movie theaters and it's the one thing I missed during the worst of the pandemic. Bring the movies home to celebrate an adult or kids birthday with this FABULOUS Birthday Movie Night shared by Simple Joys. This would also be perfect for an Oscars watch party. 



Finally, this Embroidery Hoop Snowman from Creatively Beth is just too cute! The detail of the lace gives is such a great textured look. 

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

Happy Friday Eve Creative Peeps! Can you believe Thanksgiving (American) is one week from today? You know what happens after that. It's full steam ahead for Christmas and Hanukkah. I'm almost done with this year's Christmas cards since for the first time in thirty years, I won't be hosting Thanksgiving. We're actually going away which will be completely different yet exciting for us. I loved doing it and with my Martha Stewart compulsions, always did it big, but last year when it was just the two of us for the first time...my mom was visiting her sister, we didn't have any other family to host since moving to AZ etc. I realized by not doing all the work how much work it really always was. No complaints! I loved all the years I did it but life is about trying something new and I'm actually really excited about it. This week I shared the Thanksgiving Cards I made and sent to family and friends. 

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


If this is your first time hosting or you would like to be better organized, then Blue Sky At Home has the perfect thing for you with 21 Ways to Prepare.



Whether your guests are young, older, or everywhere in between, this printable Thankful Tree from Creatively Beth is a great way to entertain them and make a memory. 


As we get close to counting down to Christmas, I LOVE this Advent Calendar for Couples from The House on Silverado


Finally, while we're still on Thanksgiving, if you want to add a little something to your dessert table (and I'm all for adding chocolate to Thanksgiving which is the most chocolate free celebration) or bring a dessert where you're going, check out these Nutter Butter Acorns from Drugstore Divas

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

Happy August, everyone. How it's already August, I don't know but here we are which means maker season is about to go into overdrive. Seeing more Halloween and even a little Christmas popping up in the stores and some of it is already on sale! Riddle me that. 

This week I shared two more home decor projects. A Lamp and Mirror Makeover and some more DIY Wall Art in Shades of Blue

Some wonderful projects as usual were shared at last week's party so let's take a look at a few!


LOVE this transformation of a stand ashtray from The Apple Street Cottage .



Whether you have a box of maps you've collected or just grab some new ones. Creatively Beth has you covered with Three Ways to Use Recycled Maps.  


If you want to get a headstart on Christmas cards, this one from Paper Seedlings is a stunner! 


Maybe you've been gardening or picked up some Zucchini at a Farmer's Market. Here's a great way to use it and it doesn't hurt that it means getting more veggies in. Check out this Double Chocolate Zucchini Cake from The House on Silverado

Greetings all! Hope anyone dealing with higher temps than normal is keeping cool. It's monsoon season in the desert which means storms and humidity. The amazing lightning storms the past few nights have been light shows and almost (ALMOST) make the humidity worth it. 

I've been exploring some modern art and have had fun with a few projects. I shared one here: DIY Modern Wall Art. Working on a couple of others I'll share soon. 

Starting to see Halloween creeping into the stores so the full-press holiday season will be upon us before we know it. Let's take a look at some of the fun ideas from last week's party! 


This thrifted table transformation from Junk Is My Life is the perfect addition to any room. Love the color! 



This portable DIY TicTac Toe game from Creatively Beth is all kinds of perfect. Fun to make, especially as a boredom buster wtih kids, fun to take on the go  with the storage pouch used as the board. 


If you're looking for some jumpstart inspiration for Christmas, and it's never to soon to start getting ready, check out these ideas from Two Chicks and a Mom



Finally, these Chocolate Snaps are pefect to bake and eat or freeze for use later. I love these kins of cookies for cheesecake crusts or crushed at the bottom or chocolate pudding or mousse. From Cindy's Online Recipe Box

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

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 and Happy Memorial Day Weekend which always feels weird to me since it's the holiday where we honor those who paid the ultimate sacrifice in service to our country. Maybe that's just me. I try to keep things focused on the creative here because like everyone else, I need a break from the harsh realities of the world but the past two weeks of carnage between Buffalo and Uvalde are taking their toll. Just keeping it real. 

I hope you've all had a creative week. I managed to do a quick project which was to "Faux" stain my knife block. You can see it here. It may or may not (but may) be getting ready to be in a new space soon! 😏 

Lots of you are getting ready for Summer so let's take a look at some ideas we can try. 



Whether you have a small or large patio, Summer is S'Mores time! What a fun and a great way to make small or even individual DIY Mini Fire Pits for them! From Artsy Fartsy Mama



Hello Sewing shared how to make something pretty and practical, always a winning combination with this Rope Bowl Basket. Don't worry if you don't sew. There's also a no-sew option. 



The aptly named Creatively Beth has a fun way to change out seasonal decor without needing a lot of space for each season with this Interchangeable Holiday Decor Sign. 


Finally, these Peanut Butter Marshmallow Cream Frosted Cupcakes from The Kitchen Is My Playground would be a great dessert to add to a Memorial Day dessert table! 

Thanks to all who linked up and for sharing your creativity here each week. Wishing everyone a safe long weekend.

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!
