BFF Open House

 


Happy Friday Eve all and welcome to another gathering of creatives showing off what they've been up to. We're in full on Halloween and Harvest mode now with Christmas starting to make its appearance in all of our favorite stores. 



Candy Corn has become the Peeps debate of Fall. Either you love it or hate it when it comes to eating it but for decorating, it screams Fall and Halloween so check out this wonderful garland from Artsy Va Va!





Fall is the perfect time for Caramel Apples and would you believe these are FAUX Caramel Apples? See Fresh Vintage by Lisa S for the details! 


More fun ways to decorate with faux fruit can be seen at Master Pieces of My Life with Ways to Decorate with Pears! 


This is such a fun idea for a Fall party "Donut Be Tricked" from Satsuma Designs!

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

Happy Friday Eve all! Hope you've had a good week and for those of you settling back into a school routine, hope that's going smoothly. Anxiously waiting for temperatures to cool some here in the desert but we're still in triple digits so my sweater and boot envy of those of you in cooler weather is strong. Fall is my favorite weather season of the year. 

Lots of wonderful ideas linked up at last week's party so let's take a look at some of them! 


Love this DIY Cake Stand idea from Makeable Crafts that also works as a great way to display things. 


Beautiful Early Fall idea from Masterpieces of My Life that shows how to transition to Fall without jumping right into Pumpkins etc. Love it! 



With gourd and craft fair season upon us, these Gourd Lanterns from The Apple Street Cottage are STUNNING! 


Finally, how cute are these Acorn Cookies made from mini cookies, kisses and chips?! A special treat for sure and you don't have to be a baker because they're no bake! From Cindy's Online Recipe Box

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

Happy Friday Eve once again everyone. Can you believe we're already halfway through July already?! What a difference a month makes. This time last month, I was just out of the hospital and we were in the process of getting a move underway. Now, pretty settled in and finally getting back to being able to make some things. 

This week I shared my new Craft Room as well as a Layered "Moonogram" (Moon themed Monogram) project. 

The craft stores are filling up with Fall themed goodies and you know that means that Halloween and Christmas won't be far behind! 

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



There is a LOT of Christmas in July inspiration in Craftworld (as well as The Hallmark Channel) and I love this idea shared by The Apple Street Cottage using a wood round to make a festive and beautiful wreath. 



Even if you're not yet making Christmas crafts, it's the perfect time to start thrifting for pieces and supplies that you will want to incorporate into your decor. I've noticed some thrift shops have gotten in on the theme by highlighting their Christmas items. Master Pieces of My Life has got a post full of inspiration and ideas for things to start looking for  NOW! 



Switching gears...check out these desserts that are perfect for any time of year because chocolate is year round! This No Bake Caramel Coconut Ice Cream Sandwich Dessert from The Kitchen Is My Playground is perfect for a hot Summer day!


Finally, what is better than a perfect fudgy frosted Brownie? This is just how I love them...with that bit of gooeyness in the middle. No wonder these are a favorite of Cindy's grandson from Cindy's Online Recipe Box

Now, let's see what all of you wonderfully creative people have been up to this week!

Happy Friday Eve Creative Peeps! Hope your week is going well. Mine got a huge boost on Tuesday when I got my blasted drain removed and confirmation that the abscess that resulted in it is fully gone. It got even better Wednesday when PhD Man arrived for a visit and to spoil me. It's such a wonderful feeling to have adult children who want to spend time with you. Thank you for your words of support and encouragement! 

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





How cute are these bright and colorful earrings? Perfect for Summer. Made with Liquid Sculpey and shared by Beth from Creatively Beth




Mary Jo from Master Pieces of My Life shared her gorgeous Summer Tablescape! So many layered elements and my fave combo of rustic and elegant. 


I usually don't go thrifting with a specific item in mind but it's always helpful and inspiring to me to see what other people find to keep in the back of my mind when I go. This collection of goodies from Thrifting Wonderland is no exception! Such wonderful finds. 


"If you like Pina Coladas..." then you will love these Coconut Pineapple popsicles from Morsels of Life. I love the combination of coconut and pineapple so perfect for Summertime! 

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

BFF Open House

 


Happy Friday Eve all!  Hope everyone's having a great week and looking forward to a long weekend. Ours will be busy since we got our keys yesterday and let the moving Olympics begin. We're doing it ourselves because we have time so we can pace it accordingly but still...moving SUCKS! In between cleaning out stuff and packing I stole some time to whip up a pair of easy Hammered Silver Earrings because Michaels is my enabler. 

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



I'm going to start off with a shout out of "Heck Yeah!" to Cecelia of My Thrift Store Addiction. As women, society places such an emphasis on our looks. And as we get older, that gets harder in a different way, at least it does for me. I'm never going to get cosmetic surgery (and I'm not judging...just saying it's not a thing for ME) or Botox or fillers etc. I do love makeup because the Creative in me sees my face as another surface to play with. But my main thing has been...coloring my hair. Something I've increasingly been thinking about stopping although I'm not quite there yet. Cecelia shared her hair journey in doing just that and I for one think she looks F A B U L O U S!!! I really want to affirm her decision because I know how hard it is to make. So "Hello Gorgeous!" and you are an inspiration. 


Anita, from Unique Creations by Anita shared a different kind of tranformation...this gorgeous Vanity makeover using chalk paint. I need to update a couple of things for my new office and chalk paint is where I'm going! 


Mary Jo from Master Pieces of My Life shared some beautiful ways to incorporate and display Sea Shells into your decor and maybe even bring back some special vacation memories! 


Finally, when this move is done, I can see one of these in my future.  From Tracy at The Kitchen Is My Playground  A Sparkling Raspberry-Limoncello Cocktail. Refreshing! 

Wishing all of you a safe and Happy Memorial Day weekend as we remember those who paid the ultimate sacrifice in honor of our country. 


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