BFF Open House


Happy Friday Eve, Easter Weekend, Passover! Our weather in the desert continues to be WILD. Red flag wind advisory on Monday, freeze warning and 29 degrees when I woke up yesterday, 90s by the weekend. I know it's been crazy in other parts of the country too. 

I shared my Easter and Passover cards here: Layered Easter and Passover Cards. I had a lot of fun with them and can't wait to start working on Mother's Day cards. 

Lots of creativity as always at last week's party so let's take a look at some ideas!

If you're looking for a last-minute but easy Easter decor project, look no further than this Bunny Carrot Basket from Artsy Va Va

If you're doing some Spring thrifting or freecycling, or just have a piece you've been wanting to make over, check out the transformation of this Spoon Carved Desk from Junk Is My Life.

If you're looking for a fun party idea, check out this Escape Room Party from Simple Joys.

Finally, if you're thinking ahead to a Mother's Day celebration or also perfect for showers whether baby or wedding, this Spring Mocha Fudge Cake from Claire Justine is perfect!

Thanks to everyone who linked up and whatever you're doing this weekend, enjoy!

BFF Open House


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, 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 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!
