BFF Open House Happy Thanksgiving

 


First of all, whether you're celebrating Thanksgiving, Friendsgiving, or flying solo this year, I'm thankful that each week you all choose to spend a little time here sharing your talent and creativity and hope you've had a peaceful day. As we gear up for peak Maker season, I also hope you remember to get some rest and practice self care! 

Let's see some ideas from last week's party!


Lisa from Fresh Vintage by Lisa S shared a fabulous way to use gift bags as art. There are so many beautiful ones out these days in every style and color palette! 


I think most of us have made paper snowflakes in our lives but Priyam from Simple Joys has taken this idea to an elegant grown up level with these paper medallions. A bunch of these as a garland or hanging from a light fixture would transform a space into a Winter Wonderland! You also need to see her paper Christmas Trees! 

I'm old school and still make all my Christmas and Hanukkah cards and always appreciate the beauty of a handmade card, such as this one from Linda at Paper Seedlings. Layered with multiple elements, this is one that the recipient will truly feel special to receive. 



Finally, these Rose Frosted cookies from Family Cookie Recipes are so elegant and pretty. I need to up my cookie game! 

OK now that you're stuffed, let's see what you've been up to this week!

Happy Friday Eve all! It's hard to believe that two weeks from now is the annual stretching of the pants day known as American Thanksgiving wherein we cook for two days to consume a meal in 20 minutes! It's tradition, and wouldn't have it any other way. I know it will be different for many this year, being unable to gather with all of the extended family so hopefully by next year that can return. 

In the meantime, let's take a look at some ideas from last week's party! 


Whether as an addition to your own decor or to make as a gift, Lisa, from Fresh Vintage by Lisa S has the cutest idea for a repurposed alarm clock. 


I think nothing makes a tablescape stand out better than having some depth. Stillettos and Shiplap shared how to make this fabulous table riser to take your festive tablescapes up a notch. 




If you're a jewelry maker and looking for a great gift idea ( or for yourself!) check out this beautiful Rope Necklace from Michelle at My Bijou Life.  She's got a step by step tutorial. 





Finally, from The House on Silverado, check out these decadent and delicious looking Milk Chocolate Toffee Shortbread Bars! I can't stop staring at them.  

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

Hi friends! Not only can I not believe it's Friday Eve again, I can't believe it's Halloween Weekend already even though it will be a different Halloween this year for sure. I know that it will be creative! Some great ideas from last week's party. Let's take a look at a few! 


I can't wait to try this fun Eyeball Plant that Jennifer from Stuido 27 shared. I saw some similar pre-made ones but think of all the possibilities making your own in whatever colors you like! 


Not only is this Mudcloth Pumpkin Pin Cushion from Sara at Birds of a Feather pretty and practical, she shows you how you can make your own mudcloth fabric! A two in one. 


After Halloween, it's full speed ahead to Christmas and these Vintage Ornament Wood Blocks from Lisa at Fresh Vintage by Lisa S are filled with retro goodness! 


Finally, check out these Pumpkin Mocha Latte Bath Bombs from Jasmine at Eccentricities by JVG would make a great self care treat ( we all need to be practicing that during this crazy year) or as gifts right? Love the design. 

Alright, let's see what genius creations you've been up to this week !

Happy Friday Eve all! Hope you've had a great week. Unfortunately, here in the desert we continue to spike in COVID cases, now leading the nation which is not a goal I think we ever wanted to achieve :(
Needless to say, sticking close to home which means more creative time. My most recent project and new addiction is here: New Addiction Modern Quilling

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


Unique Creations by Anita shared this FABULOUS Steampunk Lamp. So cool for an Industrial look or accent piece. I've seen similar pieces at Art Fairs for a lot of money so being able to make your own is wonderful using assorted plumbing pieces and ephemera in your stash. 


If you can't get to the beach, maybe you have some shells around the house or can order some online to bring a little of the beach inside like Lisa from Fresh Vintage by Lisa S did. The combination with succulents is indeed a fresh take! 


This Exfoliating Whipped Soap from Eccentricities by JVG looks good enough to eat ( so if you have littles in the house you might want to put out of reach!). Make a batch for yourself or what great gifts they'd make. 

I can't get this picture bigger w/out getting it blurry but couldn't resist featuring this Snickers Martini from Cindy's Online Recipe Box. This is definitely meant to be consumed! 

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

Happy Friday Eve all. Hope you've had a good week. We continue to spike in COVID cases here so I guess I'll be making a few more masks since we continue to not go out very much. Frustrating to say the least how few people continue to take this seriously. Anyway, let's take a look at some ideas shared last week!


Let's start with this very chic and easy pillow shared by Lisa from Fresh Vintage by LisaS using a Kitchen Towel she bought online! 


Since we're all spending more time at home these days, this colorful patio makeover idea from Hannah at Handmade Weekly caught my eye. 


With Father's Day coming up, Lou Lou Girls has a great roundup of ideas for Father's Day, some traditional and non-traditional !

Finally, and wouldn't this make a fun Father's Day dessert, Cindy's On Line Recipe Box shared this :


Giant Fudge Chocolate Brownie Donut Cake! Yes please!

Happy Friday Eve all! I know the days run together especially as we've been staying home but how did it get to be the end of April already?! Hope everyone had a good week and is staying safe and healthy. 

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


This DIY wood flower basket is made from....PAINT STICKS. I think the hardware stores figured out that crafters love paint sticks because I know I've seen them at both Home Depot and Lowes in packages for sale. From The DIY Dreamer and perfect for Mother's Day. 



Another great wood project is this very cool black and white Wall Hanging from Unique Creations By Anita. So many color combination possibilities! 


Stencils aren't just for walls or furniture! Check out how Lisa from Fresh Vintage by Lisa S used on on a Flannel Shirt! 


I have been seeing more recipes combining sweet and savory and/or using herbs in things you wouldn't normally associate with them. These Chocolate and Basil Muffins from Claire Justine look AMAZING! 

Now let's see what you've all been up to this week!

Friday Eve once again. I think. I'm no longer sure what day it is. Even though I didn't go out all that  much pre-lockdown, I had a routine that at least helped me remember which day of the week it was lol.  Hope everyone's well which has taken on a whole new meaning hasn't it?

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


Love this hanging planter that's made from...a springform baking pan! Shared by Fresh Vintage by Lisa S. Even more wonderful are the metal words she found that can be interchanged because they are held in place by magnets. 


Since we're largely stuck at home, it's a great time to use up things in our craft stash right? That's what Cecelia from My Thrift Store Addiction did w/ this cute "Hoppy Easter" sign for her garden.


COVID-19 has resulted in a lot of canceled or altered plans including things like baby and bridal showers. Satsuma Designs has a fabulous way to salvage those plans by throwing a Virtual Shower!

You can still coordinate things like games, have everyone prepared with a common snack, have a special treat delivered to the honoree and use applications like Google Hangout or Zoom to bring everyone "together" while maintaining social distancing. 

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

Greetings Creative Friends, I hope that everyone is holding up as well as possible with the pandemic we're all dealing with. So far here in the desert it hasn't been as bad as in some other locations. My heart is with my former state of Washington which has been hit hard. 

REMINDER: 


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


With many of us practicing Social Distancing and/or schools starting to close, here's a fun at home activity for St. Patrick's Day from DIY Vibes. A St. Patrick's Day Word Search!



Boxwood wreaths can be pricey but here's an inexpensive project that doesn't look it, from Fresh Vintage by Lisa S


I am in LOVE with this upcycled Geometric Dresser shared by Unique Creations by Anita. The colors, the pattern...everything! 


Finally, if you are looking for a special desert for St. Patrick's Day, look no further than this Chocolate Cake with Bailey's Frosting from Bird's Party. Oh My Yum! 

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