Happy Friday Eve and happy MARCH! Yikes. The transition from January to February never evokes any real emotions for me. But from February to March just seems so seem so much more extreme. Then again, woke up to SNOW in the desert this morning so I'm completely confused about what season it is. 

Nothing new to share this week. Weather inconsistencies have my allergies and asthma sucking all of my energy. It's weeks like this that I especially love looking at everyone's creations. So here we go! 


Given what's outside my window, this GORGEOUS Deer In a Clearing card from Paper Seedlings is perfect! 



 


Who doesn't love a good Dollar Tree upgrade project? I know I do and this one from Steph Creates is a perfect Winter to Spring transition. 


This adorable Leprechaun Selfie Wreath from Creatively Beth is perfect for a St. Patrick's day get-together or perfect for a classroom! 


Finally, how perfect for St. Patricks are these Irish Coffee Donuts from Cindy's Online Recipe Box?!

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

HAPPY NEW YEAR Creative Peeps! I hope everyone rang in the New Year safe, warm and dry. The weather has been crazy all over the country. Ours was typically quiet and I think we marked the New Year somewhere around London time! 

Each start of the year since I retired a couple and a half years ago has been to focus on my blog, branding, etc.  And each of those years have brought some other life realities into my life that have derailed things. So I'm determined that in 2023, I'm going to achieve this goal.

I have succeeded in upping my creative game by attending more workshops and seminars so let me share this one that's coming up. If you're interested in working with SVGs (Scalable Vector Graphics" and learning more about them, then you want to check out the FREE SVG Crafters Summit which will take place Janauary 12-14.

Thanks for understanding my oops in getting last week's party up. Even not working, the holidays messed with my brain schedule. Let's take a look at some of the ideas shared and again, thank you for sharing your creativity here throughout 2022 and I can't wait to see what you all have in store for 2023!



This Magical Forrest Vase shared by Love My Little Cottage is perfect to stay up throughout Winter. 



The House on Silverado shared another wonderful Winter transition project with this Winter Scene Terarrium. 


If you need a Thank You card and/or want to learn a new papercrafting technique, this card from Paper Seedlings does the trick! 


Finally, one thing I definitely want to do more of in 2023 is thrifting. If I'm lucky enough to find a gorgeous frame to work with like the one Masterpieces of My Life did here with the framed music sheet, I'll be ecstatic. 

Alright...let's get 2023 off to a creative start!

Happy Friday Eve and Happy December Creative Peeps! Can you believe it? This is the month we were made for! I hope everyone had a lovely Thanksgiving and all leftovers have been taken care of. It was both wonderful and strange not to have to deal with that this year since we ran away. It was a wonderful escape getaway and may become a new tradition. 

I made my first Christmas gift for the place where we board our furbaby here: Pet Ornament and Card and started working on Hanukkah gifts this week. I finished this year's holiday cards before our trip so now I just have to get them in the mail. Will share those as soon as they're off. 

Now, let's see some of the wonderful ideas you shared at last week's party! 


The thing I love about fellow Creatives is the ability to see ideas in things that have nothing to do with the finished project. Enter this brilliant Trio of Trees from found Thrift Store items shared by the appropriately titled My Thrift Store Addiction



Likewise, if you've got some silver spoons you've inherited or picked up while thrifting, check out this lovely idea from The House On Silverado that transformed them into Keepsake Spoon Ornaments!   


It's card season and Paper Seedlings shared a gorgeous Snowflake Card. We must be on the same wavelength because I used some blues in my cards this year too! 


Finally, after a busy day of Elfing, relax with this delicious Chocolate Raspberry Truffle Cocktail from The Kitchen Is My Playground. Hot, or cold! 

Thank you as always to everyone who linked up. A lot of busy people out there! Let's see what everyone's been up to this week.

Happy Friday Eve all. Thanks again for understanding my oops on last week's party. Our "seasons" change when they decide to and I think Fall allergies are acting as my nemesis right now. I hope everyone's had a great and creative week! I was very excited and honored to have my Copper and Silver Earrings featured in the Upstyle newsletter this week. If you're not familiar with Upstyle, it's the sibling site to Hometalk and features DIY Fashion projects. My infatuation with copper extended to these Textured Copper Candles and Silver and Copper Pumpkins


Let's take a look at some wonderful Fall inspired ideas from last week's party!



This gorgeous card from Paper Seedlings is perfect any time of year (especially the message) but is so perfect for Fall isn't it? The color blending is gorgeous. 


Speaking of perfect for Fall, check out these DIY Fall Bracelets (that should totally be shared on Upstyle BTW) from Within A World of My Own. Coordinated to match Fall outfits, there are several combos to see. 



With Christmas on our heels, there's always room for a new Tree Topper and you will NEVER guess the genius trick Lamberts Lately used for this one. If you do guess it (no cheating!) you're better than me! 

Finally, I love all of the creativity that's sprung up around charcuterie boards and this S'Mores Board from Rose Bakes is no exception. Rose also includes how to do this with or without a fire pit! 


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

Hello lovelies! Happy Friday Eve to you all and hope you've been having a good and creative week. Temps are normalizing at triple digits here in the desert but I will still always take the dry heat over lower temps with higher humidity. 

Father's Day is heading towards us quickly and before you know it the Fourth of July and annual "Christmas in July" posts will start ot hit the blogosphere and the stores won't be far behind! But in the meantime, let's enjoy Summer right? Here are some ideas to do just that! 


Nothing says Summer like butterflies and what a wonderful idea for cards like this beauty from Paper Seedlings! Could be used for so many occasions. Love the colors! 



Speaking of Father's Day, how cute is this pillow from Laura Kelly using  Infusible Ink?! 


I absolutely love the look of these Burlap Containers from Masterpieces of My Life


Finally, check out these Butterscotch Chocolate Chip Bars from Cindy's Online Recipe Box with instructions to make them with sugar, or sugar-free! 

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

Happy Friday Eve all! Happy Christmas Eve Eve and in our house, it's Nisse Night which means the Scandinavian gnome like creature expects rice pudding, leaves small gifts, and depending on their mood, sometimes leaves sarcastic notes. It's a tradition I married and maybe added to ( eg the notes). 

Hope you're all doing well. I'm almost panicking that everything's wrapped, stocking provisions are done, meals are planned, groceries have been gotten and I don't really have anything left to do but some cooking and baking. Son got here on Saturday and we've just been enjoying laying low and hanging out. A few presents I made I can't post until after Saturday so I haven't been sharing much this past week but have enjoyed seeing your most recent creations. So let's take a look at some highlights from last week's party that are all things you can still fit in! 




Whether you need a creative package topper or you have little ones to entertain and want to do a quick craft, these Accordion Christmas Trees from White House Crafts are perfect! 


At some point, we come into possession of vintage hankies either through inheritance or thrifting. The question is always what to do with them. This  Vintage Hankie Ornament idea from My Thrift Store Addiction is PERFECT and a great way to make a last minute keepsake gift for a family member. Who among us makers doesn't have extra clear ornaments in our stash?!


Another "fab, fast, and festive" idea for a last minute gift or package topper are these ornaments from Paper Seedlings. A great way to use up leftover scrapbooking paper! 




Finally, there's always room for one more addition to the cookie table right? These Nutella Rum Balls from Pots and Planes are just the thing! 

Wishing all who are celebrating a very ๐ŸŽ„Merry Christmas ๐ŸŽ„.

Happy Friday Eve and Hallo-weekend! We may actually get a few trick or treaters for the first time in forever so anxious to see. Is everyone ready? More wonderful ideas shared at last week's party. There may not be time to make but definitely there's time to pin for next year! 

Shared my 2021 Halloween cards here. OK let's take a look at some of the ideas from last week's party! 

Wishing everyone a safe and Happy Halloween! 



How cute is this Halloween Gingerbread House from Saved From Salvage?! I planned on making one this year but definitely saving this for next year! The Cheez-It roof is brilliant!

If you're going to "BOO" your neighbors or friends or have a gift to give, this adorable bag from I Teach Stamping is perfect! 


And if you need a card to go with your gift bag on with Thanksgiving coming, this one from Paper Seedlings just screams Fall! 



Finally, if you are looking for one more treat for your Hallo-Weekend dessert table, check out these Marshmallow Cream Filled Coffin Cupcakes from Cindy's Online Recipe Box

Have a BOOtiful weekend all!
