Happy Friday Eve from the laziest Maker in the Southwest! I've been shopping and pinning but I have just been L A Z Y about making. I think it's coming off of being so busy with The Mumster's fall in April and subsequent rehab, follow-up doctor's appointments and then things finally slowing and settling down and I just need to get motivated. So July, right?! 

Have taken some workshops, picked up some Procreate and Cricut Design Space tips and tricks and absolutely love seeing what everyone else is up to. With that, let's take a look at some things shared last week! 


Steph Creates shared this beautiful DIY Frosted Candleholder. Make some for you or for a holiday gift. 

 


Thrifting Wonderland shared a project involving one of my favorite things to shop for at thrift shops: A Candlestick Recycle along with wonderful found books to make a lovely vignette. 

Cincy Shopper share this festive Ice Cream Cake that would be perfect for Fourth of July or other Summer celebrations. 


Finally, Summer is popsicle season! If you want to have an adult version, these Piña Colada Popsicles from Rose Bakes are PERFECT! Skip the rum if alcohol isn't for you. 


Thanks to all who linked up! Wishing you all a wonderful (and cool!) weekend.

Happy Friday Eve all, and I hope the first week of March has treated you well! I can't believe St. Patricks is in less than 10 days and Easter is at the end of the month, then we'll already be in April! This is the time of year we're all supposed to be getting an early start on holiday gift making right? At least that's what I tell  myself in October/November about the coming year. Anyone else?

This week I shared a fun impromptu gift I made for Mr. Chocolate combining his love of Disney and trains: Layered Disney Inspired Train

Now, let's take a look at some of the great ideas shared at last week's party! 



The Apple Street Cottage shared this VERY cute St. Patrick's Day Idea perfect for school, office, neighbors!


Master Pieces of My Life shared an elegant way to add some St. Patrick's Decor without breaking the bank by using a thrifted frame! 





Nothing says Welcome Spring like pretty flowers. Blue Sky At Home has a beautiful idea with this Garden Style Spring Wreath

Finally, Rose Bakes shared these wonderful St. Patrick's Cake Pops which would be a fun way to celebrate. 

Thanks to everyone who linked up and for understanding about features last week. Can't wait to see what you've been up to this week!

Happy Friday Eve, Creative Peeps! Our track record of managing to avoid COVID unfortunately came to an end this week. Mr. Chocolate first, then me following by a couple of days. So far, not too bad and thankful we are up to date on our vaccines. We've been cautious because I'm high risk. 

Jumping right to features. 


Cardmaking remains my first love so seeing this Valentine's Card Making Station from Building Our Hive stole my heart! 



Steph Creates shared this simple and fun Tissue Paper on Wood Valentine's Heart with supplies from Dollar Tree, her specialty. 


Creatively Beth shared a pretty and sugar free idea with these Valentine's Themed Felt Fortune Cookies


Finally, Rose Bakes shared these glorious and Perfect Valentine's Brownies

Thanks to all who linked up and stay healthy!

Happy Friday Eve all! Finally finished decking my halls and I don't know about you, but sitting in the dark with the Christmas trees (yes, I said trees) twinkling is my favorite. I know Buddy the Elf says smiling is his but this is mine. There's something calming and comforting to me. What is your favorite part of the season?

This week I shared another idea I saved last year...a Dollar Tree Duster Mop Wreath 




You've all been busy elves and shared some inspiring ideas at last week's party so let's have a look at a few!


The Apple Street Cottage has a beautiful solution for any jewelry pieces you may have stashed in a drawer and don't know what to do with: A Unique Jewelry Tree. As the family Maker, guess who gets these and this is one I'm saving to do next year! 


Crazy Little Love Birds shared this Frosted Glass Candle Display. I love how spray painting different pieces the same way unifies them. 


Condo Blues shared this ingenious idea of using tomato cages to make Outdoor Gnomes! The best part? They're slipcovers that can come off, be tucked away, the cages used in the Summer, and back again for the holidays!


Finally, Rose Bakes shared yet another creative take on a charcuterie board with this Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer dessert board.

Thanks to everyone who linked up and can't wait to see what you've been up to this week! To those lighting the first candle of the Hanukkah Menorah tonight, I wish you Peace, Love, Latkes!

Fall is in the air! Granted, here that means days finally under 100 degrees, but I'll take it. ALMOST out of shorts and sundress weather. Had a fabulous birthday weekend this past weekend and continuing to celebrate with more September baby friends and their upcoming special days. 

I love Fall with all of its changing colors and cooler days. Let's take a look at some of the beautiful Fall inspiration shared at last week's party! 


My favorite type of project is transforming something ordinary into something pretty and extraordinary. Steph Creates did exactly that with this inviting Upcycled Fall Floral Decoration



This inspired Fall Tablescape from My Thrift Store Addiction is a perfect way to transition. Love all the greens! 
 

These look good enough to eat, don't they? Studio 27 shared her "Faux" Fall Decor that is convincingly real! Great way to get the feel of a bakery without the calories. 


Finally, Fall (for me) is soup weather and hearty ones that can be a whole meal are my fave. This Cream Cheese Potato Soup from Rose Bakes fills the bill! 

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

Happy May and Friday Eve! Whew, it's been a week. Came down with a sudden onset fever of 101-102 last weekend. I thought I was for sure headed to urgent care or the ER on Monday when thankfully, I woke up and it had broken. COVID tests were negative and didn't have other symptoms but it left me zapped of ANY energy for two days more. I'm not used to sitting around doing basically nothing but that's exactly the level of energy I've had. Back to about 30% yesterday and a bit more today but blech!

I hope you've all had a MUCH better week. May has definitely brought flowers to lots of the cacti in the desert. The blooms are amazing. And lots going on to start the month.Teacher Appreciation, Cinco de Mayo celebrations, Mother's Day next weekend.

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



This is one to save for next year's "May the Fourth Be With You" fun but was too perfect not to share. Light Saber Cookies from Rose Bakes. What Jedi wouldn't love these?


Speaking of Cactus blooms, this Kissed Cactus card from Paper Seedlings couldn't be more timely or perfect. 


I'm not sure how many generations away we may be from these well work handwritten family recipes going the way of the dodo but while we still have some, this Vintage Recipe Art from Sum of Their Stories is a fabulous way to preserve them! 


Finally, perfect for this weekend since it's Kentucky Derby time, are these Mint Julep Mocktails (easily turned into an adult version with a splash of  Kentucky Borbon) from Me and My Inklings


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