BFF Open House


Happy Friday eve all and I know I am always going on about how fast time goes by but seriously, HOW is it already the end of February?! I need one of these genius tech people to figure out a way to slow time down.

Here are some fun ideas from last week's party!


Don't have a digital cutting machine? Don't need one to make these cute Mickey and Minnie "LOVE" signs. Drugstore Divas has the details! 

Seems like there are fewer and fewer things to laugh about anymore so this Ombre card from Paper Seedlings is a great reminder for all of us. Who wouldn't smile getting one of these? 


I think DIY Vibes just found a solution to a space I've been trying to decide how to fill. I love this Mason Jar Wall Decor idea which would work for fresh or silk flowers. 


Finally, it's that pre-Spring weird weather where it's either cold one day, warm the next or even within the same day. This Salted Caramel Hot Chocolate is just the thing to warm up the cold days and not be too hot on the warm days. From The Kitchen Is My Playground.


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

BFF Open House


Happy Friday Eve and Happy October all! I'm still learning the "seasons" here in the desert and we are in what I'm calling "Fall Spring" since it's cooled down but still lovely. Popping in stores is how I'm really reminded what time of year it is. 

Let's see some features from last week's party ! I love it when a plan I didn't know I had comes together. The features this week are a Dollar Tree bonanza! 


Love this gorgeous pumpkin makeover of a Dollar Tree pumpkin by Kippi At Home. So elegant and can stay up all Fall. 

This time of year starts my busiest card making season and like Linda from Paper Seedlings , I am always on the lookout for interesting materials to use on my cards. I literally laughed out loud when I saw this because I bought the same self adhesive rhinestone sheet (ok sheets) she used on her card, also from Dollar Tree! 


PINK VELVET pumpkins! Perfect in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness month ( ladies, "check the girls"). Perfect for a new twist on Fall. Perfect because they're no sew. Lisa from Fresh Vintage by Lisa S will show you how to use a Dollar Tree foam pumpkin to make! 

Now let's see what all you creative people have been up to this week!

BFF Open House Link Party


Happy Friday Eve all. Whether you're celebrating Easter, Passover, or nothing this weekend, wishing everyone a wonderful weekend! 

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


I love a good pun and living in the desert, I couldn't resist these Succulent Printables from The Organized Dream


I can't wait to make these for next year. Love love love these Paper Eggs from Paper Seedlings. These are so much fun as shown or as a garland. 



What's better than a chocolate bunny? One that doesn't melt and you can put in your garden. Check out these cute plant stakes from Fluster Buster


Finally, if you still need a festive dessert for Easter check out this Chocolate Pistachio Cake from Masterpieces of My Life.  So elegant ! 

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

BFF Open House Link Party

Happy Friday eve all! Had to check to make sure I wasn't still in Washington because it's SNOWING here where I am in Arizona. Yes, Arizona gets snow at the Grand Canyon , Flagstaff, etc. but I'm nowhere near there. Yikes! 

Now that I'm over ( well not really ) my shock, here are some ideas from  last week's party! 



St. Patrick's Day is next month and even if you aren't Irish or Catholic, it's a fun day to have some fun. How about this cute paper straw wreath from Try It Like It


Do you like to switch up your phone case but don't want to spend a fortune ( have you priced some of them lately?!) ? Check out this DIY makeover from Artsy VaVa


I'm always on the lookout for new papercrafting techniques and I can't wait to try this crayon resist technique Paper Seedlings used to make this card. Love all the shading and the texture! 


Finally, how about this marbled quick bread from Treat N Trick? YUMMY. Perfect to make just because or maybe as a neighbor treat? 

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

BFF Open House Link Party


Happy Friday Eve and Happy October all! Yikes, Halloween's just around the corner and from there the holiday season kicks into overdrive. Already heard Christmas music somewhere. 

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


I know that the movie "Hocus Pocus" has a huge fan following. Confession time: I've never seen it! Not intentionally, just never have. However I know the fan base is HUGE so here's a great tee shirt for all you Hocus Pocus fans from A Sprinkle of Joy, and Danielle has included a free cut file for you to download! 

To go with your cute tee, you could make  yourself and/or a friend this gorgeous turquoise bracelet from DIY Adulation. So pretty for Fall ! Marie gives you step by step instructions. 


Now that we're settled into our home, I'm SO excited to be surrounded by my craft supplies again most especially my paper!  How cute are these Paper Pumpkins from Linda at Paper Seedlings? Scatter these around the house ; make a centerpiece ; make a garland ... possibilities are endless



Finally, if you are planning a Fall or Halloween party and you want to wow your guests, check out this GORGEOUS cake from All That's Jas. OMGeeeee!!!

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

BFF Open House Link Party

Happy Friday Eve all and hope everyone had a wonderful Valentine's and Galentine's Day.  Some great ideas from last week's party to share. 


Springtime is prime time for things like showers and luncheons and I just love this idea from Penny's Vintage Home: A Wood Slice Cake! No calories and love the mossy layers. So many possibilities. You could even use the top layer as a tray for cupcakes. 



Lindsey from Repurpose and Upcycle shared her technique for aging Terra Cotta pots which makes them look so chic and like ones you see in places like Pottery Barn . Love!


I love the look of embossed metal to use in cards and mixed media projects, but the actual metal can get pricey. Linda from Paper Seedlings has a great technique using heavy duty aluminum foil and embossing folders. I think I even have this exact embossing folder. So elegant! 


Finally, Craftbeering takes one of my favorite desserts, chocolate fondue, up a notch with Hazelnut Brown Ale Chocolate Fondue. 

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

Finally, whether you're looking for an addition to your Thanksgiving desserts or just because, check out this Toblerone Mousse that Cassie's (from Lou Lou Girls) husband made for her! Yes HER HUSBAND MADE FOR HER.

BFF Open House Link Party


TGIF-eve even though it was a short week. Hope everyone had a safe and happy 4th. 

Here are a few ideas from last week's party to peruse while everyone shares what they've been working on this week. 


I've always been drawn to rocking horses. The older, the better. Absolutely love the way Laura from Junque Cottage made-over this one!


Laura's rocking horse would look great on one of the stenciled floor projects shared by the ladies from Lolly Jane don't you think? 


As a cardmaker myself, I can't imagine making a more special card than that of your child's Wedding card. This is the one made by Linda from Paper Seedlings for her daughter's wedding. GORGEOUS! 

Now, on to this week's party!

BFF Open House Link Party Happy New Year!



Happy New Year! Hope everyone had a safe and happy start to 2017. My new favorite New Year's Quote is: 

"May the best of last year be the worst of this year"
 Like everyone else, I'm in the process of evaluating things I want to keep, lose, or change in the New Year. I want to revitalize my blog which has been a little stale so look for some changes. If you have any suggestions please feel free to leave them in the comments!


I want to keep my little party but would definitely like it to grow so if you have friends you want to bring, please do!

Let's see some highlights from last year's last party!



I did one of those "what are the first three words you see" word puzzles and the first word I saw was "peace" so this card from Paper Seedlings definitely caught my eye! Not just because of the word but I love the white on white layering and the detail. Beautiful!


Something I'd like to do more of in 2017 is Thrifting. I love found objects and My Thrift Store Addiction has some wonderful projects and ideas to get you started or re-started! 


If like me, you're still getting organized for the New Year, the gals at Lolly Jane have got you covered with 50 FREE printable 2017 calendars. 

This week's chocolate feature isn't actually chocolate but it's about chocolate! Love this vintage chocolate ad shared by Vintage TLC . Great as a printable or to use in image transfer project etc. 

Now onto this week's party!

The Answer Is Chocolate

Happy August. AUGUST! How did that happen? Hope everyone's had a good week. Mine was crazy busy but just enough time for a few features. 


First up, I am in LOVE with this farm house table makeover from Sugar and Succulents. You would pay a fortune for a table like this but this was a complete DIY!


Now, wouldn't this gorgeous Rope Handle Cloche look perfect on that table? I think so. Check out Anderson and Grant for the how-to. 


Paper Seedlings has been up to some more collage work and this piece is gorgeous! 


This week's Chocolate feature is also a Science lesson. Yes, Science and Chocolate!  Go to class at Sweet Meets Bake Shop

Now on to this week's party!
