BFF Open House

 
Yikes! How is it the end of August already? I go from "this year is one long month" to "where did this year go" in the same breath. Spent the week organizing my craft room and even went through all of my paper scraps and "whimper" got rid of some. I am attached to every little piece and remember which card or project they're from. As Shakespeare said: "Parting is such sweet sorrow". 
Took a break from Quilling ( although I did order some new quilling strips from Quilling.com and they ship FAST!) and re-purposed / stash busted a couple of things here.  OK! Let's see what everyone's been up to this week!


Mary Jo from Masterpieces of My Life shared this simple, elegant, and high impact Reindeer Moss Wreath. What a stunning piece! 


Penny, from Penny's Treasures shared her GORGEOUS second gallery wall! I love how everything is tied together by color. 

Living in the SW, and particularly in horse country, I see a lot of horse themed decor that can get pricey! Anita from Unique Creations by Anita has a great piece that fits right in!


Be still my chocoholic heart! Cecelia from My Thrift Store Addiction shared these Cake Mix and Candy Bar Donuts. It's not like I wanted to jump through the screen to get them or anything. Maybe. OK definitely. 
Now, let's see what everyone's been up to this week!

Friday Eve once again. I think. I'm no longer sure what day it is. Even though I didn't go out all that  much pre-lockdown, I had a routine that at least helped me remember which day of the week it was lol.  Hope everyone's well which has taken on a whole new meaning hasn't it?

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


Love this hanging planter that's made from...a springform baking pan! Shared by Fresh Vintage by Lisa S. Even more wonderful are the metal words she found that can be interchanged because they are held in place by magnets. 


Since we're largely stuck at home, it's a great time to use up things in our craft stash right? That's what Cecelia from My Thrift Store Addiction did w/ this cute "Hoppy Easter" sign for her garden.


COVID-19 has resulted in a lot of canceled or altered plans including things like baby and bridal showers. Satsuma Designs has a fabulous way to salvage those plans by throwing a Virtual Shower!

You can still coordinate things like games, have everyone prepared with a common snack, have a special treat delivered to the honoree and use applications like Google Hangout or Zoom to bring everyone "together" while maintaining social distancing. 

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

Happy Valentine's Day Eve all! Hope everyone's had a good week and you're all set for whatever you're doing tomorrow (including nothing at all!). Here are some ideas if you've waited til the last minute or to pin for next year. 



Gnomes are everywhere! This adorable 6x6 painting from Artsy VaVa is so cute and can stay up all year round. The colors are fresh and non-traditional proving Valentine's Day isn't all red and pink. 


If neutrals are more your thing, then this Burlap and Button Heart project from My Thrift Store Addiction is perfect. 


Chas, from Chas's Crazy Creations is back w/ another great Dollar Tree based project. 


Finally, how about some Red Velvet Waffles for a special breakfast? Yum!! From We Dish It Up

Sending hugs and kisses to all of you who come to visit each week! 

Let's see what everyone's been up to this week!

Happy Friday Eve all! Hope your week has gone well. Let's see some ideas from last week's party! 


You may still be able to find some clearance Christmas ornaments or have some leftover that you didn't use. This idea from Fresh Vintage by Lisa S is a great way to transform them into a great Valentine's wreath. 


Flights aren't just for airplanes! Lots of craft distilleries and restaurants offer Flights of everything from ciders to Bourbons and Handmade Weekly has a great way to make your own Flight Board. 


Have you ever double thrifted? Cecelia from My Thrift Store Addiction made over a recent thrifty find with a previous thrifty find. That's what I call a double thrift! Love these Toile Covered Hearts and Letters. 


Finally, I couldn't resist this fun drink which would be perfect for Valentine's Day but it caught my eye because of the name, especially being of a certain age. It's The Gilligan's Island Cocktail from The Kitchen Is My Playground. Yep, now you're humming the theme song too! 

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

Happy "it's already mid-way through January" Friday eve! Hope you're all well and those hit by cold are staying warm. 2020 is off to a creative start so let's see some ideas from last week's party! Now that all the holiday decorations are put away, my mind has turned to freshening up some home decor. 




This sign is my motto! I really love how My Thrift Store Addiction updated and styled this clearance find, painting over the "stay" and the frame to match. 


Artsy Va Va shared this gorgeous paint makeover. The paint makes this piece look completely different from the original. 


To protect the surface of a newly painted table, can't go wrong with these DIY Splatterd Wood Coasters from Common Sparrows


Finally, I love the idea of a Donut and Coffee bar! Would also work w/ hot chocolate but the peg board to hold the donuts is key! From Bird's Party

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

Happy Friday Eve and day after Christmas all. Hope everyone celebrating Christmas had a wonderful one. It was a fun day at Casa Chocolate. 

Let's see some ideas from last week's party!


I love the simplicity and impact of this red painted framed Scrabble tile word art from DIY Vibes ! Smaller frames would work well as ornaments too. 



Artsy Va Va is back with this creative beadboard Christmas tree, mounted to a piece of corrugated metal. Rustic and festive!


Speaking of creative trees, check out this rake head turned Christmas tree door wreath from My Thrift Store Addiction


Finally, and this would be great for a New Year's brunch table, check out this gorgeous Braided Nutella Brioche from Treat and Trick. YUM! 

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

Happy Friday all and yikes , it's already the middle of August. How? I didn't set out to do a wreath feature this week but there were some great ones linked up last week so it just kind of happened! 


Let's start with this one from Kippi At Home. Gorgeous: the colors, the ribbons,  and the frame works so perfectly. Stunning!



If you don't live where the leaves turn color you can always recreate that feeling with this idea from The Organized Dream. Supplies from the Dollar store! 


I've seen lots of great sales at the craft stores...getting ready for Fall and Winter. Check out what My Thrift Store Addiction was able to do w/ some goodies she found on clearance! 


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

Happy Friday Eve all! The only bad thing about vacation, is getting back into the work groove after vacation so this week has both flown by and dragged at the same time if that makes any sense. 

Glad to see it hasn't slowed down anyone's creativity ( well, anyone else's!). Here are some ideas from last week's party!


Who else can't walk by the Target Dollar ( or more) Spot without stopping? They knew what they were doing! So did Chas, from Chas's Crazy Creations with this tray she picked up there! 


I love a good upcycle and you have to see the condition of this char My Thrift Store Addiction made over! Didn't it turn out great?!


Speaking of upcycles, I dare you to guess what these awsome Patina'd Little Vases started out as. You'll have to visit Artsy Va Va to find out but suffice it to say they're something we all likely have on hand ! 


Finally, look at this delicious Spinach Raspberry Salad from Fluster Buster! Yum!

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

Happy Friday Eve again all! Can you believe we are already past the halfway mark of the first month of a new year? Me either. As always, there were so many fun ideas shared at last week's party. Here are just a few! 



I'm seeing lots of white and winter white decor like the ideas Carol from The Red Painted Cottage has in this post. I'm in love with that Pom Pom wreath.  I think there's something refreshing and clean about the white and naturals after all the colors of the holidays. 


I also love this fun Winter White Felt Garland from Suzer Space


With Valentine's Day right around the corner, these little treat boxes from My Thrift Store Addiction are just the thing for small treats. 



Finally, if you've got power tool skills (or know someone who does) these Wood Shim Hearts from Hazel and Gold should go on your "must make" list! Love the dimensionality and the weathered look. 

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