BFF Open House

 



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 December everyone! The time crunch is ON! I hope everyone had a nice Thanksgiving and for those who began celebrating Hanukkah, hope it's been fun. It was just the two of us but I cooked like it was 20 of us only without the stress of what mood(s) guests would be in and not having to time cooking to drive, pick up relatives, cook, drive relatives home etc. It was freaking glorious. The halls are now all decked and full speed ahead until Christmas which will be wonderful this year because thanks to the pandemic last year, it was the first one we didn't spend with our son and he'll be here this year! Thank you 🎅🏾.

I don't know about you but the hardest part of this time of year for me is being busy making things that you can't post because they're gifts for people you don't want to see them! However, you can share them here so let's take a look at some ideas from last week's party ok?



If you're still looking for some fun decor projects, these Yarn Loop Trees from The Apple Street Cottage are easy and festive! And there are so many fun yarns to play with.



I love a good Dollar Store project and this Ornament Wreath from Life as a LEO Wife is pretty and easy on the budget. 


My blog is really about this next blog's perfect name: Makeable Crafts. Festive accent pillows can change the whole feel of a room. These are no exception! 


Finally, it's the time of year when dinner needs to be easily doable with everything else going on right? These French Dips from Homemade On A Weeknight are PERFECT for that! 

Alright all you Santa's Elves, let's see what you've been up to this week.

Happy SEPTEMBER everyone! Can you believe it? I can't. Three weeks post surgery today and not gonna lie...taking longer than I hoped to get back to full speed. I have to remember that while I'm young at heart, that heart is in a body a little bit older than it was when I last had surgery. Thankfully pain is pretty much gone but I get tired easily and fall asleep like a narcoleptic! Tired by restless is a weird combination. 

Best possible medicine was a visit from PhD man last week who cooked and tutored Mr. Chocolate in cooking and we managed to get out of the house a couple of times although still being cautious because of Delta. 


So for now, still not really spending any time creating but itching too, especially with Halloween next month! In the meantime, let's take a look at some of the great ideas shared at last week's party! 



Fall through Christmas crafting season is my favorite time of the year. What better way to welcome September and Fall than this beautiful Wheat and Grass Wreath from Howling Liz?


Also perfect for Fall is this beautiful Beaded Fall Garland from Artsy Va Va! Beaded garlands are very popular right now. 


"Love me" some Dollar Store finds. And these reversible Fall and Halloween Pumpkins from Life as  A LEO Wife are GENIUS!! 


Finally, I have been a cheeseburger fiend since childhood and my number one favorite as a kid was going to White Castle. There was just something abut the size that made them special. Now, sliders are everywhere and The Kitchen Is My Playground has a great way to make them at home. 

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

Happy Friday Eve and Happy August! Enjoying a break from our Summer Monsoons which I guess are supposed to be back. We do actually get rain in the desert and during Monsoon season that can mean flash floods, muddy roads etc. Necessary, nature, and not my thing! 

My creative contribution this week was to get another batch of Birthday Cards off  To Box of Balloons, an organization that works to ensure children who might not otherwise get to be celebrated on their birthdays. 

Lots more wonderful and creative ideas shared at last week's party so let's take a look at a few! 


It's never too soon for Christmas projects...we just celebrated a whole month of "Christmas in July". This Clock Frame Makeover from The Apple Street Cottage is such a wonderful idea! 


I love this LOVE frame from Makeable Crafts! The buffalo check in the heart is such a perfect accent but other patterns would work just as easily. 


I love a good Dollar Tree creation and this table...yes TABLE...from Life As A LEO Wife is so cool! 


Finally dessert, and shocker...it's not chocolate...but Mr. Chocolate is a BIG bourbon aficionado so this Bourbon Pecan Cheesecake from Not Entirely Average definitely caught my eye! 

Time to see what everyone's been up to this week!
