BFF Open House Link Party


Happy Friday Jr. / Friday Eve and Happy June! How on earth is it June? Thanks for hanging with me and understanding the lack of features last week. Month end craziness at work just ate my brain. 

These features are from last week's party and the party the week before. 


First up is this gorgeous thrift store makeover from Raven Would. Love what Kileen did with this down to the casters she added and the shabby chic finish. 


With Graduation season upon us, My Busy Beehives has got some elegant printables perfect for any Grad! 


Who doesn't love an Ikea Hack? I love seeing the creative ways people make their stuff (already so cool) even more amazing. Sara from Find It Fix It or Build It has 23 Ikea Hacks for you!


 Finally, what better way to end the week / start the weekend than with a batch of these Sour Cream Double Chocolate Chip Cookies! Visit Crazy About Expresso for the recipe! 

Now, on to this week's party!

BFF Open House Link Party



Happy best day of the week Friday Eve!!! Hope everyone had a good week despite the crazy weather everywhere. The PNW gets a bad rap on rain but I heard last night on the radio that we've had as much rain since October 1 as we usually get in an entire year! Ready for some dry days here. 

Let's see some ideas shared at last week's party: 



Love this wooden backdrop from My Busy Beehives! She keeps it on her mantel and changes out what's on it seasonally. I am also in love with the Spring wreath she has on it! 



There must have been something in the air last week because here's another wreath I am in love with. This one from Maggie Lois. The mix of textures and colors of greenery really come together for a simple but impactful wreath. 


Now I didn't plan on having wreath centered features but it just turned out that way! I also love this Spring Tulip Wreath from Alaynas Creations. Once again common materials and colors make an impact! 

Since tomorrow's St. Patrick's Day, this week's chocolate feature is perfect ( not that you couldn't make these whenever!). 


Guiness Stout Chocolate Cupcakes with Irish Cream Frosting! YUM! Thank you for sharing Bird's Party


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

BFF Open House Link Party


Happy Friday eve all! Can you believe it's already the last week of February? The good news is that means Spring is on the way. What Spring things have you been working on? I haven't even started! 

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


Kileen from Raven Would shared not only a great Goodwill find but what she did with it to make an awesome Spring centerpiece.  See that cute bunny? She's also got a tutorial on that !


Even though it's technically a few days before Spring officially begins, I always think of St. Patrick's Day as the first Spring holiday. My Busy Beehives has a great printable to add to your decor. 


Despite what Mr. Chocolate thinks, I do not in fact have 99 lipsticks. But, who can't use a cute cosmetics bag? Maggie Lois shared this one that I love! 


Finally if Spring is not quite around the corner in your neck of the woods but you want to bring some in, Heather from Woods of Bell Trees has a gorgeous transitional centerpiece . 

Now, on to this week's party!

BFF Open House


Happy Friday Eve all! Well the Northwest started the week under a blanket of snow and looks like the Northeast will finish it under an even bigger one. Hope everyone and all of you in the middle are safe and warm! 

Let's see some great ideas from last week's party. If you're snowed in this weekend, might have time to work on them! 


I love this cup cozy Kileen from Raven Would shared. It was inspired by the movie "Big Hero 6" and the Beymax character. There's an ongoing battle in our house because Mr. Chocolate is of the opinion that Beymax is and should be referred to as Big Hero 6. We've agreed to disagree but I think everyone can agree how cute this is! Even my basic crochet skills can handle this! 


The expression "SWAK" for Sealed With A Kiss comes to life with these printable envelope seals that were shared by White House Crafts. How much fun are these?!


Dog lovers or friends and family of dog lovers you will want to check out these printables from My Busy Beehives.  Woof! 

Finally, if you're looking for a delicious Valentine's dessert, look no further: 


Chocolate Cupcakes with Mascarpone Frosting from Birds Party! You're welcome !

Now, on to this week's party!

BFF Open House Link Party


Happy Friday Eve everyone. Hope the week has been KIND to you! Once again it's flown by. Some really fun ideas shared at last week's party. Let's see a few! 


Valentine's Day is coming but I am really loving that "Galentine's" is a thing. What a fun way to show your girlfriends some love and let's not leave guy pals out ...that could be "Palentine's" right?  This post from White House Crafts is perfect for Galentines with a host of great ideas! 


You could whip up a few of these DIY Agate Coasters to include. 3 Winks Design has the how-to.  I keep seeing agate accessories everywhere but they can add up fast!


My Busy Beehives shared this fabulous Scrabble Tile idea that is super easy and super cute! 


Wipe the drool off your screen. Don't these White Chocolate Raspberry Cheesecakes from Crafting In the Rain look amazing? You're welcome! 

On to this week's party!

BFF Open House Link Party


Happy Friday Eve all. Hunkering down here in the PNW on snow watch like so many parts of the country. I'm a busy elf working on handmade presents and finishing up decorating.  And then I see more awesome ideas linked up at my party and my head spins even faster! Here are some ideas that may or may not make it yet this year but definitely pinned for next! 


Let's start with these printable but originally hand lettered gift bags by My 3 Monsters courtesy of Lolly Jane. LOVE and who can't use extra bags this time of year? Post includes a tutorial on how to easily print on paper bags. 



Speaking of getting your jingle on, leave it to Mich in LA to see this brilliant idea in a jingle bell! I want to spend the night in her brain sometime. And they're not just for earrings. You have to see what else she did with them. 


These sparkly polymer clay Snowflake Ornaments from My Busy Beehives would be a great addition to your tree or to make and give as gifts. Beautiful! 


I'm on the hunt for a new dessert for Christmas. I make one of two of the same cakes each year and want to try something new.  This Chocolate Raspberry Forrest Cake  from Chocolate and Carrots looks wonderful and the chocolate trees don't look too hard. What do you think? 


Now, on to this week's party! Stay warm.

BFF Open House Link Party


OK let the countdown officially begin. Twenty-four days until Christmas and twenty-three days until the first day of Hanukkah! Rev your engines. It's crunch time people! 



Let's start with a tour shall we? Now we know why Heather from Woods of Bell Trees always impresses with elegant projects. Look at her creative space all decorated for Christmas! Gorgeous! My office decorations consist of leftover supplies on the floor lol. 


Love this decorating idea from My Busy Beehives. A Jingle Bell Monogram! 


Also loved these "Ho Ho Ho" Vinyl Lettered Pots from White House Crafts. Simple, clean, fresh! 

I've always wanted to make a Yule Log and every year I say I'm going to try and every year.... Well this may finally be that year with this idea from 3Winks Design! How about a platter of these? Genius idea. 


Now, on to this week's party:

BFF Open House Link Party: Happy Thanksgiving


Happy Thanksgiving ! Our annual feast day of eat ti'l you can't move then shop til you drop tomorrow. We skip "Black Friday" but those of you who are going out be safe and have fun. Since I'll be hosting the rest of the day, throwing the party open early and wishing everyone a very HAPPY THANKSGIVING. Thankful that you make my little party a part of your weekly routine!

Here are some features from last week's party !


How perfect and timely is this from Lolly Jane?! If you're like me, the leftovers are the best part of Thanksgiving. 


Printables are such a great and simple way to change up your decor. My Busy Bee Hives has a great collection free for you to download!



Time to start finishing up handmade gifts and Mich in LA has a great way to use an eclectic bead mix. Love these handmade earrings and Mich has a tutorial you can follow!


This time of year we all use a lot of ribbon but don't throw those ribbon spools away. Raven Would has a great idea to turn them into ornaments! 

OK on to this week's party!
