BFF Open House


Happy Friday Eve all! Hope you've had a great week. We're under an earlier than usual heat advisory so while the calendar may not yet say Summer...

What a lovely surprise  to find my Metal Flower Bottle Toppers featured over at Our Hopeful Home during this weeks VINTAGE CHARM PARTY #442 hosted by Kathleen and Cecilia from My Thrift Store Addiction. Thank you! 

I did some more metal embossing this week which you can see here: Embossed Metal Southwest Decor


As always, lots of fun ideas were shared at last week's party so here are a few that caught my eye!



Fresh Vintage by Lisa S shared GORGEOUS Tea Bag Art! It's peak iced-tea season so save those bags and play! 

Christine's Crafts  shared these easy and fun to make Gift Tags using Repurposed Book Pages.


My French Twist shared this amazing Macrame Screen that would spark up any space. Macrame is having a moment! 

Finally, The Kitchen Is My Playground shared a recipe for Mr. Chocolate's all time favorite pie: Strawberry Rhubarb. Trust me, we have stalked fairs and farmer's market for it! 

Thank you to everyone who linked up and can't wait to see what you've got to share this week!

Happy Friday Eve all. Another week of life being what happens when you're busy making other plans. My mom took a fall and has been in the hospital since last Friday night. Hopefully, by the time you read this, she'll have been released. 

A departure from my usual creative commentary. PSA: PLEASE start much younger than you think is necessary understanding your aging parents realities. Finances, important papers, wishe. No, it's not fun. But it will save you and them peace of mind even if you or they don't think so. Same with cleaning out their homes as needed. My mother is a self-entitled pack rat. We went through a nightmare moving her out of her house and her apartment has become just as cluttered. If your parents are already minimalists...GOOD! 

Alright, let's take a look at a few things from last week's party! 


Our Tiny Nest shared how to make DIY Tea Bags with Personalized Tags! What a great gift to make for multiple occasions from Mother's Day to showers or just because.

Condo Blues shared a recipe for another great gift idea or to make to spoil yourself. Lavender Bath Salts. Dress up with a pretty jar, fun label, or tag! 


My French Twist shared a great tutorial about How to Print on Fabric (I'm also giggling at the sentiment). Great for decor or making personalized gifts etc. 


Finally, Ann's Entitled Life shared this delicious looking Coca-Cola Cake! How perfect for showers or other Spring events! 

Thanks to all who linked up and can't wait to see what you've been up to this week!

Bloop! It's Friday Eve again already and the week has flown by. Thought a bug was getting me but I think I out ran it. Whew. Just absolutely devastating news about Maui. We celebrate our 32nd Anniversary this month and we spent our honeymoon visiting Oahu, Maui, and Kuai, and have been back to the islands several times over the years. The Lahaina area is filled with a lot of history and was designated a National Historic District. My heart goes out to the families and friends of the 36 people we know have been lost so far. 

I hope those of you sending kids back to school are getting through that smoothly. I remember all of the forms and meetings involved.

More wonderful creativity shared at last week's party so let's take a look at a few! 




Artsy Va Va shared this great Dragonfly Wooden Canvas featuring Terra Clay Paint!


Speaking of paint, Try It Like It shared how to use Artesprix paint and shaving cream to make these colorful Coasters.


My French Twist shared how to make a pretty and practical Emergency Kit Pouch to keep those little things we need from time to time. This would also work as a cosmetics bag!


The only thing better than a hot fudge sundae is a Hot Fudge Sundae Cake! From Cindy's Online Recipe Box

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

Happy Friday Eve all. Summer is chugging along and I hope you're all doing the best you can to stay cool and in many cases, cool and dry. Monsoon season has definitely arrived in Southern Arizona bringing with it reminders to heed flash flood warnings if you're ever here during this season. Roads flood quickly and become dangerous. 

Jumping right into features this week! 


If you're doing back to school shopping, hang on to some of those jeans that kids may have outgrown and check out this great idea for Denim Baskets from My French Twist


You've probably seen Wakefield Garden Pottery at garden and home stores and if so, you know it can add up. Enter Master Pieces of My Life with an incredible knock-off post! 


Building Our Hive has a fabulous idea for Summer with this Fun in the Sun Giftbag



Finally, I love coffee as much as I love chocolate and this Coffee Canape Mousse from Esme Salon looks divine! 

Thanks to everyone who linked up and can't wait to see what's in store this week!

Happy Friday Eve all! I hope those of you in California continue to be safe. We got a bit of the rains this way in Arizona this week. Hard to believe we're already past the halfway mark of this month. Want to know the funny thing about taking workshops? The more you take, the more you learn about TO take, and so on. If you got a new Cricut over the holidays or even if you've had and played with one but want to use it more, you really want to make sure and take one that's coming in February. If nothing else, it's a great way to find new Creative Bloggers and maybe even get some freebies!

You can register here for the event which runs from Feb 4-10 with numerous very talented designers. The workshop is free and I get no compensation for sharing. I'm just a big believer in "Sharing is Caring"!

Thanks to a previous workshop Abbi did, I made my first project of 2023: Family Chinese Zodiac Wall Art. I got to apply the knowledge of how to use Inkscape to convert an image file to an SVG (Scalable Vector Graphic) to import into my Cricut Design Space Software and cut out in vinyl! 

You've all hit the 2023 ground running with lots of creative ideas so let's take a look at a few. 


I have a wonderful cloche I found at a Pottery Barn after-season sale that I like to switch out seasonally. These Valentine Cloche ideas from The House on Silverado are FABULOUS inspiration! 


If you're looking to decorate a new space or switch things up, this Boho Basket Wall by My French Twist is gorgeous! 



Steph Creates shared this beautiful and rustic DIY Heart Garland. So pretty! 


Finally, whether for at home or to package for friends, this Cupid Crunch from Me and My Inklings is a lovely way to celebrate Valentine's Day. 


Thank you to everyone who linked up and can't wait to see what you've all been up to this week.

Yikes! Eeek! We're halfway through October already. For me, the time just speeds up now. I've been busy attending some craft summits and signing up for more and realize I should be sharing those! The next one I'll be on the lookout to sign up for will be done by Craft With Sarah who is still doing a daily Halloween SVG freebie for Halloween projects. She just announced today that she'll have a Holiday one starting in November so if this is something you think you'd be interested in, get on her mailing list now. 

Last week was another great week of inspiration with projects and recipes "to die for" mwaaahhhh.

Let's take a look at a few. 


With the popularity of Disney's Hocus Pocus 2, it's been fun seeing all the creative ways people are celebrating the movie. Penny's Treasures is no exception with her Bad Apple Brewery vignette! 


My French Twist shared this clean and modern take on a Fall staple, dried wheat, with these Color Wrapped Wheat stalks. I love the simplicity and modern Fall color palette. 


Coffee, specifically "Iced Venti Nonfat No Whip Mochas" are my love language! If you have a coffee lover in your life, why not whip up a fun gift like these Wood Coffee Blocks from Drug Store Divas?

Finally, this Apple Pear Fall Sangria from Our Tiny Nest is a wonderfully fresh taste on a classic drink. What a great Fall dinner party drink and I think it could easily be adapted as non-alcoholic.

Thank you as always to everyone who linked up. I do look at all of them! 

Now time to see what everyone's been "brewing up" this week!

Happy Friday Eve all and for all of the Hocus Pocus Fans out there, how excited are you for the sequel premiering tomorrow on Disney+? I've got a feature right up your alley. Hope everyone's had a good week. Sending thoughts to Florida peeps and hoping that all who've been dealing with Ian are safe. We've had some more weird weather but NO comparison! I did FINALLY get my Halloween Tree Skirt done and by the time this posts, will hopefully have my tree up and decorated. 


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


Artsy Fartsy Mama has the PERFECT snack for your Hocus Pocus 2 watch party. How cute are these Cupcake Wrappers and Toppers? She's got free printables so you can make your own. 

These DIY Crystal Balls from Life as a LEO Wife are so spooky yet elegant. Love them! 


These Measuring Tape Earrings from My French Twist are a wonderful gift idea for the makers in your life aren't they? I love this idea!



And finally, these Chocolate Halloween Whoopi Pies from Cindy's Online Recipe Box would be a hit for any party or fun dinner in October, wouldn't they? 

Thanks to everyone who linked up and can't wait to see what you've been up to this week!
