BFF Open House

 

Happy Friday Eve all and for me, a kickoff to my birthday weekend. Celebrating another trip around the sun. Thanks for filling this past year with all of the creativity shared here each week. I'd also like to thank you for the support shown as I shared my journey with anxiety and depression last week. While I didn't share anything new this week, I did find the inspiration to start a Halloween Tree Skirt...have it cut out and just need to put it together...and a few cards I needed to make. Will share soon. 

It's cooled down enough to resume daily walks and having a new neighborhood to explore is great. Where we are now, we're surrounded by pecan groves filled with leaves and we're curious to see if they change color. 

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

With Halloween approaching, now's the time to work on new additions to your decor. These DIY Spell Books from Masterpieces of My Life are just perfect! Pick up some old hardcover books from the thrift store or Goodwill and have at it!



Need a fun new shirt for Halloween? Check out this idea from Artsy Fartsy Mama who has the FREE "I'm A Little Batty" SVG file to download. This works for me regardless of the season! 


Nature crafts are always fun to make and these Twig Stars from Serenity You are no exception. I'll have to start looking for twigs on my morning walks. 



Finally, another nature craft...Word Stones from Thriving With Less. I've seen these in decor boutiques but none as gorgeous as these! If you collected some from the beach or river, what a wonderful way to memory keep. Or, you could grab a big bag from a home improvement store! 

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

Hello lovelies! Happy Friday Eve to you all and hope you've been having a good and creative week. Temps are normalizing at triple digits here in the desert but I will still always take the dry heat over lower temps with higher humidity. 

Father's Day is heading towards us quickly and before you know it the Fourth of July and annual "Christmas in July" posts will start ot hit the blogosphere and the stores won't be far behind! But in the meantime, let's enjoy Summer right? Here are some ideas to do just that! 


Nothing says Summer like butterflies and what a wonderful idea for cards like this beauty from Paper Seedlings! Could be used for so many occasions. Love the colors! 



Speaking of Father's Day, how cute is this pillow from Laura Kelly using  Infusible Ink?! 


I absolutely love the look of these Burlap Containers from Masterpieces of My Life


Finally, check out these Butterscotch Chocolate Chip Bars from Cindy's Online Recipe Box with instructions to make them with sugar, or sugar-free!

Happy Friday Eve and almost the middle of March! Our big girl is on the mend and back to her usual self and looking forward to getting her stitches out on Monday. Found a little time this week to whip up a super easy St. Patrick's Day vignette thanks to Target and Dollar Tree. 

There were also some great ideas shared at last week's party so let's take a look at a few of them! 



This St. Patrick's Day Frame Wreath from Masterpieces of My Life is just stunning isn't it?! 



These Denim Flowers from The Apple Street Cottage are "green" in the sense of being re-purposed. So fun and easy to make and you could easily add a green bead or charm to wear for St. Patrick's Day but they go with literally EVERYTHING! 


If you want a fun snack for St. Patrick's Day, these Shamrock Pretzels from Drugstore Divas are perfect! 





Finally, if you want a spectacular finish to a St. Patrick's Day dinner, look no further than this amazing Irish Cream Mocha Layer Cake from Cindy's Online Recipe Box! Slainte! 

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

OMG I definitely have post surgical brain and they left that part in! I started this in PLENTY of time to have it posted on time and my brain went for a walk. Yowza! Maybe it's because I was so excited to get my bandages off today. TMI? 

Hope you've all had a wonderful week. As much as we needed the rain here in the Southwest, I'm not going to lie and say I miss it. It's been a great week with a visit from our son. 

Let's take a look at what you've been up to the past couple of weeks!


It's almost PUMPKIN season! I don't like to eat them but I do LOVE to decorate with them. Masterpieces of My Life has five inspiring ideas to get you started! 



The House on Silverado has a beautiful furniture makeover with a Milk Paint finish. Gorgeous! 



Maybe you took a beach vacation this year and found some seaglass or maybe you just want to create that beachy feel just because. Fresh Vintage by Lisa S has just the way to do it with this Faux Sea Glass Trinket Bottle tutorial! 



Finally, I haven't had one of these in years but growing up they were a staple! From Studio 27 by Jennifer Adams, make your own classic Hostess Cupcakes at home! 

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

Happy Spring, officially! It's kind of hard to tell here in the desert but I guess it's when it's still below 100! I used to tease my Mom and friends who lived here before us about being cold in temperatures that other parts of the country would consider far from it. Now I'm on the receiving end when I tell our son that "it's cold" as he lives in Chicago and reminds us what cold really is.  Karma!

Easter is early this year and I haven't really done any decorating or new Easter projects. I did a little roundup of different ways to use plastic eggs here.  

But, I did grab this free cut file from Creative Fabrica today that I'm going to play with! If you don't know , they have daily freebies but they are only free for one day. Fonts, graphics, SVGs. It's a great way to build a library. They also have a weekly freebie and periodically offer free bundles. I'm not an affiliate so this is just me sharing. 

OK! Let's take a look at some of the wonderful projects shared at last week's party. 


MaryJo from Masterpieces of My Life shared her gorgeous Easter Tablescape, the centerpiece of which are beautiful Mercury Glass eggs! I love the moss bunnies and accents. 


Penny, from Penny's Vintage shared her festive Spring Kitchen so you have to check out the whole thing but I especially love these fabric carrots! This gives me some ideas how to use up lots of scraps I have from mask making! 


Lisa from Fresh Vintage by Lisa S shared a treasure trove of German Paper Mache Easter Eggs she found while thrifting. What wonderful vintage keepsakes! 


Finally ( and we're all adults here right) I give you these "Better Than Sex" cupcakes shared by the Lou Lou Girls! I think they speak for themselves! 

Alright! Let's see what everyone's been up to this week! Happy Passover to those celebrating!

Wasn't it just January 1? Normally I'd complain at how fast time is going by but not this year with vaccine rollout ramping up and putting us closer to being able to get back to some of our "normal" lives. So very thankful that my mom has gotten her first dose! Glad to see that things are thawing out in parts of the country that have been frozen and hopefully we won't have any more bad Winter storms. 

Lots of creativity at last week's party so here are a few projects that caught my eye! 


With St. Patrick's Day approaching, here's an easy, fun and inexpensive way to add some festive decor to your home. This is a fun sign from Dollar Tree ( I just bought one myself, coincidentally) decorated with an Irish Jig from Condo Blues!


I also loved this fun Leprechaun Jar idea shared by Creatively Beth. What a fun treat for everyone! 


If your green leans towards the variety of having a green thumb, here's a beautiful vignette from The House on Silverado that's a perfect way to bring some festive St. Patrick's charm to your decor. 




Finally, what's more perfect for St. Patrick's Day dessert than a Chocolate Pistachio Cake? Perfect for Easter and all Spring celebrations as well! From Master Pieces of My Life

Alright creative friends, let's see what you've all  been up to this week!
