BFF Open House

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!

Happy Friday Eve All. February's been a blur so I'm kinda ready to be moving on to March while at the same time, I can't believe it's almost MARCH?! Since we did a couple of weeks of grocery delivery because we were down with COVID, it was a shock yesterday when we made it back to the grocery store and both paused in confusion seeing all of the Easter stuff! Stuck in a time warp since the last time we were there it was Valentine's everywhere. 

Spring is around the corner and it's fun to see so many Spring and St. Patrick's ideas. Let's take a look.

The Apple Street Cottage shared a pretty and practical idea that we can probably all take advantage with this Upcycled Candle Jar tutorial. 

Organized Home shared thisvery cute Leprechaun Hat idea that would be fun for any St. Patrick's table! 

With Spring approaching, comes Spring cleaning which often includes going through our stash. Like paper, it's hard for me to part with fabric scraps. Sum of Their Stories has a great way to use them to make New Usable Cloth

Finally, how cute is this idea from Our Tiny Nest...Leprechaun Bait Chex Mix! The book is a must, too. 

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

BFF Open House

Happy Friday Eve, all. Hope everyone's had a good week. Finally had a couple of days where I got to switch to my Fall attire of Halloween leggings because it cooled off enough. It's the little things, right? It's also holiday full steam ahead time. I was able to get my house "haunted" so now I can work on Halloween cards for friends and family. 

Lots of great Halloween inspiration at last week's party so let's take a look at some!

My Halloween tastes continue to get creepier so these DIY Halloween Oddities Jars from Studio 27 are right up my creepy alley! 

Those jars would fit right in with this Bone Apetit Tablescape from Master Pieces of  My Life

I'm always in on a good Dollar Store Makeover and this Mirror Upgrade from Crazy Little Lovebirds. Perfect for a gothic Halloween, everyday decor, or both, is perfect!

Finally, it's both Pumpkin Spice and Hot Chocolate season so why not combine them into one? That's what Our Tiny Nest did as well as shared ideas for a Hocus Pocus party! 

Thank you to all who linked up and can't wait to see what creative mischief you've gotten up to this week!

Greetings all and happy Friday Eve. March is marching and we're about a week out from St. Patrick's Day. Not that we go out exactly but to be on the lookout for Leprechauns, right? I won't bore you with more tales of allergies laying me out. 

I got a lovely boost to my foggy-headed mood when Amanda from Hometalk let me know that they're featuring my Dollar Tree Wood Bead Wreath in an upcoming newsletter. It's always lovely to be recognized and know that something you created inspired someone, isn't it? That's why I love hosting a link party. 

I also want to share another wonderful workshop I signed up for taking place March 28-Apr 1:

This is a five-day FREE online workshop featuring 39 Cricut Craft demonstrations by some very talented creators. All of the details can be found here. If you own a Cricut (or another digital cutting machine because the workshop files are usually SVGs that work on multiple machines), are considering one and want to see what you can do with them, it's a great FREE way to learn some things. 

Now, let's take a look at some ideas from last week's party! 

With Easter approaching, these stunningly elegant Wood Eggs from The House on Silverado are a must check out! 

Likewise, this Tobacco Basket Makeover from Artsy Va Va is perfect for Easter or Spring decor! 

But first, St. Patrick's Day and this fun batch of Leprechaun Bait from Our Tiny Nest looks like tons of fun to make! 

Finally, these Chocolate Dipped Peanut Butter Shamrock Cookies from Me and My Inklings make a great treat for Leprechauns big and little! 

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

Happy February! Happy Love Month! Happy Black History Month! 

I can't believe we're already in the second month of the year already. January flew by. One of the things I was excited about when we decided to move close tom Tucson was the chance to finally get to experience the Jewelry and Gem shows that take place at the end of each Jan / early February. I knew this was a big deal here but OMG! 42 SEPARATE VENUES all over the city. HUGE ones at that. I've made it to one so far and was overwhelmed. I'll do an upcoming post just on this. 

Managed to knock out a couple of projects this week. A new wreath for our bedroom using great finds from Dollar Tree: Wood Bead Wreath and Tag and an easy Valentine's Cloche

You all have been busy getting ready for Valentine's Day so let's take a look at some great ideas! 

You can't go wrong with these Valentine's Treat Baskets from Whitehouse Crafts

These Beaded Hearts by Steph Creates are beautiful on their own or as an addition to a gift! 

If you want to set a special table for Valentine's Day, check out this beautiful Floral Tablescape from  Thrifting Wonderland

Finally,  perfect for dessert or to give as a sweet treat, these Valentine's Day Peanut Butter Cookie Bars from Our Tiny Nest definitely fit the bill! 

Thanks 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!
