BFF Open House

 


Happy Friday Eve all!  Hope everyone's having a great week and looking forward to a long weekend. Ours will be busy since we got our keys yesterday and let the moving Olympics begin. We're doing it ourselves because we have time so we can pace it accordingly but still...moving SUCKS! In between cleaning out stuff and packing I stole some time to whip up a pair of easy Hammered Silver Earrings because Michaels is my enabler. 

Let's take a look at some wonderful ideas shared at last week's party! 



I'm going to start off with a shout out of "Heck Yeah!" to Cecelia of My Thrift Store Addiction. As women, society places such an emphasis on our looks. And as we get older, that gets harder in a different way, at least it does for me. I'm never going to get cosmetic surgery (and I'm not judging...just saying it's not a thing for ME) or Botox or fillers etc. I do love makeup because the Creative in me sees my face as another surface to play with. But my main thing has been...coloring my hair. Something I've increasingly been thinking about stopping although I'm not quite there yet. Cecelia shared her hair journey in doing just that and I for one think she looks F A B U L O U S!!! I really want to affirm her decision because I know how hard it is to make. So "Hello Gorgeous!" and you are an inspiration. 


Anita, from Unique Creations by Anita shared a different kind of tranformation...this gorgeous Vanity makeover using chalk paint. I need to update a couple of things for my new office and chalk paint is where I'm going! 


Mary Jo from Master Pieces of My Life shared some beautiful ways to incorporate and display Sea Shells into your decor and maybe even bring back some special vacation memories! 


Finally, when this move is done, I can see one of these in my future.  From Tracy at The Kitchen Is My Playground  A Sparkling Raspberry-Limoncello Cocktail. Refreshing! 

Wishing all of you a safe and Happy Memorial Day weekend as we remember those who paid the ultimate sacrifice in honor of our country.

Hi all and hope everyone's had a great week! In advance, Happy Easter to everyone celebrating this weekend. Passover also comes to a close this weekend. 

Let's jump straight into seeing some of the ideas from last week's party. 


Unique Creations by Anita continues her Steampunk creations, the latest example of which is this Steampunk Gnome! 


Cecelia from My Thrift Store Addiction shared this beautifully simple and perfect for Spring Moss Wreath. 

Artsy Va Va shared these pretty Spring candles with a tutorial not only on how to decorate the outside, but how to make the inside! 


Finally, check out these Chocolate Bunnies from Studio 27 by Jennifer Adams. Are they though? Chocolate that is...you tell me! 

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

Happy Friday Eve all! Hope those of you who have been dealing with frigid to sub-zero weather are keeping warm. Valentine's weekend is here and 2021 is moving quickly. Hard to believe it's been a year that we've been dealing with COVID isn't it? But Creatives that we are, we've been able to fill that time haven't we? Let's take a look at some of the ideas from last week's party! 




The Little Yellow Corner Store shared this Warm and Cozy Valentine's Tablescape that truly lives up to its name! 



Howling Liz is showing some love for our feathered friends with this pretty and practical Birdseed Heart. We have tons of quail around us who aren't exactly airborne but I love to watch them as they have their morning and evening conclaves. 



 Another beautiful tablescape, this time with Chocolate Truffles and Peonies, was shared by My Thrift Store Addiction. I love pulling together different pieces we have on hand and using them in creative ways. 



Finally, Valentine's Day doesn't have to only be about chocolate ( Gasp! Can you believe I just said that?... Me?!) I am intrigued by this Garlic Lovers Jelly from Homemade on a Weeknight. I started using a Honey and Fig jam I picked up on burgers, grilled cheese, etc. and it was a game changer. I think this Garlic Lover's Jelly is one as well! 

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

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!
