BFF Open House Link Party


Happy Friday Eve all! Hope everyone's had a wonderful week and Spring is acting like it in your neck of the woods. Here in the PNW we've had seveal days of every kind of weather except snow lately. I'm talking in the same day. Sunny then rainy then thunder then sunny. Lather rinse repeat.  Let's see some ideas from last week's party! 


LOVE this Spring tablescape from Much More Creative using pedestals she made. Even though Easter is over, this is perfect for the rest of Spring. I am a sucker for anything on a pedestal. 


How fabulous would those pedestals look on top of this amazing farm table Artsy VaVa shared? More amazing? HER SON MADE IT. Yes I needed to put that in all caps. HE MADE IT! If he ever decides to stop being an Architect, he's got a calling right? Not surprising he's got such a great eye with a mom as creative as he has. 


Any pet parents out there? I have an older dog who would love to snuggle in this Pampered Pooch Pocket from Kileen at Raven Would. Who wouldn't feel cozy in this and even if your sewing skills are limited ( like mine) it looks pretty straightforward. 


YUM is all I have to say about these Chocolate Kiss Stuffed Chocolate Chip Cookies from Sugar Spice and Family Life

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

BFF Open House Link Party


Happy Friday Eve all! I hope the week has been good to you and that you've stayed warm! We were spared the snowstorm visited upon our PNW neighbors to the south in Oregon and I'm hoping it stays that way!

Grap a cup of your favorite whatever and let's look at some great ideas shared at last week's party. 


First up, a huge CONGRATS to Andrew and Dennis , the creators of Crafty Lumberjacks on not only starting their new You Tube Channel but on also joining HGTV's Handmade Channel!! Check out this genius idea they shared for their first feature: 



These fabulous tags from Much More Creative couldn't be more timely could they? 


I've yet to try candle making but this idea from Woods of Bell Trees is definitely one to try! Can you ever have too many candles? (Heather, I couldn't figure out where to leave you a comment)


Finally this printable from Lolly Jane is always a good reminder. A quote I've loved since "Dead Poets Society". 

Now, let's see what you've been up to this week! Thanks so much for stopping by.

BFF Open House Link Party


Happy November everyone! Hope you had a fun and uneventful Halloween. Now that it's November time will really fly by for the rest of the year. Let's take a look at some of the great ideas shared at last week's party. 


Halloween may be over but you can still pin this idea for next year. Love this chalkboard  sign from Much More Creative


I have morphed into this person who can rarely wear a coat anymore, even in the Pacific Northwest! I get too hot inside but still need something for outside. So wraps and ponchos are perfect and Woods of Bell Trees has a great project to convert a shawl into a poncho!


Printables are such a fun and easy way to add some seasonal decor and the ladies at Lolly Jane have a really cute one they're sharing. 


We are in prime baking season ( OK when isn't it time to bake?) so these Nutella Chip Cookie Sandwiches are a must add to Fall baking. From Sweet Meets Bake Shop

OK on to this week's party!

BFF Open House Link Party


Happy Friday eve all. Up here in the PNW we are bracing for not one, but two epic storms, one of which may be record breaking. To say I am not looking forward to either of them is an understatement. Hope my fellow NW crafty peeps stay safe. 

Here are some festive ideas from last week's party to add to your Halloween plans! 


Love these Halloween numbers from Much More Creative.  I think I will have to do 25 for Christmas! 


These Halloween Lantern Lights from Lynda Creates would be a fun addition to a mantle, railing or any place you can put them up! 


Very much in love with this Magnolia Pumpkin from Lolly Jane. So elegant and easily something that can stay up through Thanksgiving! 


This week's chocolate feature is one of my favorite ( and easy ) things to make...a festive bark. i need to whip some up for my grown guy's goodie box. Check out this version from Morgan Manages Mommyhood

Now on to this week's party!

BFF Open House Link Party


Happy Friday Eve and almost October everyone. Fall projects are in full swing so let's see some great ideas from last week's party. 



Let's start with these Rustic Fabric Pumpkins from Raven Would. We see lots of velvet ones this time of year but there's something about the lightness of the fabric she used that make these so vintage looking. 



A perfect way to welcome Fall is with a sign of course! How about this one from Much More Creative


I love using things for other than their intended purpose. How about using a pie dish for a photo frame? What a great touch to add to your kitchen or as a gift to your favorite baker? Love Inspired Details has...the details. 


Who says your crock pot is only for main dishes or savory meals? Not 3 Winks Design who shared this Surprise Fudge Pudding, perfect for cold Fall nights! 

Now on to this week's party!

BFF Open House Link Party

The Answer Is Chocolate

Happy Friday Eve all. How is it already the end of April?! Hope you've all had a good week. Here are some ideas from last week's party! 



My walls may not be filled with exclusive fine art but they are filled with pieces I've enjoyed making. If you like doing your own , A Pretty Fix has a great idea for a whitewashed abstract piece. 


These reverse Batik pillows from The Decor Guru would go well in a room with the artwork above. 


With wedding season upon us here's a great gift idea from Much More Creative. Perfect for an anniversary gift or just because. 

I think my blood sugar went up just looking at this week's chocolate feature ! Willy Wonka has come to life with this Wonka Factory Milkshake Martini from Sweet Meets Bakeshop.




Now onto this week's party!

BFF Open House Link Party

The Answer Is Chocolate

Happy Friday Eve all and welcome back to the BFF Open House. Hope you all had a wonderful week and March isn't coming in as too much of a lion for everyone. Let's start with some features from last week's party. 


I am all about the DIY wall art and love this idea from Decorating Cents. Andrea added this to her son's "big boy" room but I can think of several even bigger boys for whom this would be a great idea in an office / man cave etc. 



Artsy Va Va shared a great image transfer technique . I love how this shabby chic wood block turned out don't you? 



Brenda from Much More Creative shared these great reclaimed wood tags for St. Patrick's Day. You won't believe how they started. 


This week's chocolate feature is from Diana at Closet Crafter Ohio. Inspired by chocolates her husband brought her from Belgium, she came up with a copycat recipe that I think looks AMAZING!

Now on to this week's party !

The Answer Is Chocolate

Happy Friday Eve all. Hope everyone had a very Happy Valentine's Day and a great week. Back with features this week. Even though Valentine's Day is over, it's never too late to pin for next year or to show someone some love whenever right? 


Much More Creative shared this fun altered Love Potion  bottle. Change up the paint colors and embellishments and you could have a different kind of potion bottle for Halloween! 


You wouldn't guess that this Valentine block from Artsy Va Va started out from wood scraps from her husband's shop. Salvage everything!  In keeping w/ my Valentine's to Halloween transition ( where that came from I don't know) you could easily do this with a pumpkin instead of a heart and change the background papers. 


Sugar Spice and Family Life shared these delicious and pretty Chocolate Peanut Butter hearts. Who wouldn't love a bunch of these any time of year! 


Speaking of Chocolate and Peanut Butter, One Little Project At A Time shared these Chocolate Heart Peanut Butter cookies and for those of you who are gluten sensitive, they're even gluten free! 

Now on to this week's party!

The Answer Is Chocolate

Happy Friday Eve all !  Time to link up, visit, and ooh and aahh over each other's creations. 


If like me, you're still transitioning from holiday to Winter decor here's a fabulous idea from Much More Creative you'll want to check out. Simple, elegant and fun! 


If you're done decorating, how about a new necklace for yourself? I see another trip ( and a confused store employee) to the HW store in my future with this Rustic Copper Washer Necklace from Jewelry Making Journal.  



Speaking of jewelry, if you wear a lot of Silver one thing I'm sure you hate is having to polish it. Woods of Bell Trees has some great hints on storage that minimizes tarnish so you can spend less time on polishing and more time on fun stuff! 


I think all of us are trying to eat better but if you're like me, it doesn't work when you feel deprived. How could you feel deprived with this single serve Peanut Butter Brownie from Sam at Pancake Warriors ( and how could you not love a blog named for Pancakes?!). Have you heard of Peanut Butter powder? I hadn't but DEFINITELY want to check it out.

BFF Open House Link Party #235


Happy Friday Eve all. I guarantee no one is more excited than I am because I get my best Christmas present tomorrow when Grad School Boy comes home!!!  Mr. Chocolate and I are so excited. 

The days are ticking away and here are some features from last week's party: 


Brenda from Much More Creative shared her gorgeous Christmas chalkboard. Beautiful! 


Brenda's chalkboard would go well with this re-purposed sheet music wreath from Lynda Creates


Artsy Va Va is back with a wonderful vintage ornament. These would make special gifts. 


This week's chocolate feature is a Red Velvet White Chocolate Trifle from Andrea at Living on Cloud Nine. Isn't this festive and perfect for Christmas?
