BFF Open House


Happy Home Stretch Creative Peeps. It's GO time! Hard to believe, isn't it? Actually organized enough this year to have everything done including gifts wrapped with just cooking left. Picked our son up from the airport yesterday and looking forward to just hanging out and enjoying time together. I hope that whatever you're doing...staying peaceful and joyful. I committed to reducing my stress this year and not trying to overdo it. 

This week I shared some Hanukkah gifts I made. The same technique can be used for any occasion or just everyday decor. 

And of course, there were lots of inspiring and creative projects shared at last week's party so let's take a look at a few! Wishing you all the joys of Christmas and love and light in the remaining days of Hanukkah! 

We love seeing red cardinals in the trees and they are such a symbol of Christmas. This Cardinal Sign from Artsy VaVa is just perfect for the season!

This "Hot Wheels" Christmas Ornament is such a fabulous idea for car lovers big and small. From Me and My Inklings.What a great way to honor toys that may no longer be played with or to purchase new in honor of someone's favorite vehicle. 

If you're taking a potted poinsettia or amaryllis as a hostess gift, Saved From Salvage has a great way to dress up a Hostess Gift and make it more special. 

Finally, My Thrift Store Addiction shared a delicious holiday treat. Chocolate Filled Puff Pastries in Christmas shapes! Pretty and delicious. 

Stay warm and safe with the crazy Winter weather that's hitting everywhere!

Happy Friday Eve all and I hope Florida Creative Peeps are doing OK and hanging in there. So much devastation, it's incomprehensible and I know that's an understatement compared to living through it. 

October proceeds and Spooky Season is in full swing. I got my Halloween Tree up and dropping this year's Halloween cards in the mail to special family and friends today. 

As always, there were great projects shared at last week's party so let's take a look at a few! 

How fun are these Witch Hat table favors from Thrifting Wonderland? Perfect to set a spooky table and/or send home with guests! 

These Concrete Pumpkins from Saved By Salvage are just GORGEOUS and she has all the details on how to make! 

How cute is this Book Witch from The Apple Street Cottage

Finally, these Brownie Parfaits from The Kitchen Is My Playground would be perfect on a Halloween part dessert table or for any time! 

Thank you to everyone who shared their creations and let's take a look at what you've all been up to this week!

Happy Friday Eve all! Hope you've all had a good week and those of you who either as teachers or parents went back to school this week, I hope it was peaceful. We had a fun getaway for our 31st Honeymoon last week. We drove up to Las Vegas for the week and loved checking everything out. It seems like every Food Network or other celebrity chef has a restaurant or several! Gordon Ramsay, Bobby Flay, Guy Fieri, Buddy Valastro (Cake Boss) Lisa Vanderpump, and Martha Stewart's "The Bedford". We stayed at Resorts World which has three hotels in one and enjoyed their "Street Eats" choices as well as a fun place called "Sun's Out Buns Out" with great breakfast sandwiches and the Carver Steakhouse where we celebrated our Anniversary dinner which they made special. It also housed a 24 hr Starbucks which was great for me with morning and late afternoon iced mochas. We didn't do any shows this time mostly because we're such early birds and are in for the night well before they  start. It was good for me to get away since I suffer from some crippling anxiety and depression at times and the timing was perfect. Sometimes that helps me create. Other times it just paralyzes me so being distracted helped. 

Fall is here (I don't care what the calendar or thermometer says). I guess I should say "Fall Craft Time" is here. I'm going to start on a Halloween tree skirt for the black "Christmas" tree I got for 50% off from Wayfair. Found some great fabric 50% off at JoAnn's!

Let's see some of the ideas from last week's party. 

This is brilliant and perfect for any space. A DIY in this case Journaling Station but could be used for SO many thing including just as extra storage! From Thriving With Less.

I love what Penny's Vintage Home did with this Antique Wooden Dough Bowl! We have one from my husband's family's old farmhouse and last year I filled it with greens and baubles for the holidays but I love it with these Fall blooms!

Being a lover of neutrals, this Neutral Baby Shower from Saved From Salvage caught my eye. It is so elegant and fun and you really have to see all that she did! 

Lastly, I hadn't thought about using my InstaPot to make Bread Pudding but this Gooey Chocolate Chip Bread Pudding from Scratch Made Food may change that! 

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

Happy Friday Eve all! It's been a week that's gone by quickly and slowly at the same time. I'm not sure how that's possible but that's how it's felt for me. The clock stays ticking and we're almost within the two week window for Christmas which seems hard to believe. Looks like you've all been creative and busy Elves, getting presents done and your halls decked. 

Let's take a look at some of your inspiring ideas!

These Icing Cones from Studio 27 by Jennifer Adams look good enough to eat don't they? However don't! They're made from ... spackle! What a wonderful addition to holiday kitchen decor and/or a Hot Chocolate Bar. 

Even if you don't have a digital cutting machine you can still make beautiful papercuts like this gorgeous tree by Priyam at Simple Joys. Great for a card, ornament, or package topper. 

Speaking of trees, LOVE these rust Twine and Wood Piece Trees from Saved From Salvage

Finally, if you're looking for a special holiday dessert, you can never go wrong with a Chocolate Mousse and this one from Kiku Corner looks perfect! 

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

Happy Friday Eve all and hope everyone had a safe and happy Halloween weekend! We thought we might get a few trick or treaters this year but...not sure if it's a good thing that I bought the kind of candy we like! Hey, I was a Girl Scout : "Always be prepared!" right? Got the Halloween decorations down and the "Fallsgiving" decorations up. I put up a Halloween tree this year. Mr. Chocolate was initially skeptical when I told him I was going to and then fell so in love with it he asked if we were going to keep it up once Halloween was over. So being a Maker, of course I swapped it out for the season and made some layered paper leaves to go on it.

Fallsgiving Tree

Welp! We are full steam ahead into the holiday season. Hanukkah comes REALLY early this year starting the Sunday of Thanksgiving weekend. The Christmas commercials have already started and Hallmark was playing Christmas movies in October. Honestly, I think they just need to add a year round Christmas Movie channel to their lineup. 

Lots of wonderful ideas shared at last week's party so let's take a look at a few!

It's still VERY much pumpkin season and The Apple Street Cottage has an ingenious way to make a Sweater Look Pumpkin. Truly, I never would have guessed! 

I've done some paper quilt projects but this wood Barn Quilt from The House on Silverado is absolutely STUNNING! 

Wondering what to do with old windows you may stumble across? Check out what Saved From Salvage did with one! I've seen similar in home decor boutiques for big $$$. 

And finally, The Kitchen Is My Playground is back with a wonderful and easy addition to your Thanksgiving dessert table: Crescent Pecan Squares using crescent rolls! Don't have to be a baker to make these!

Thanks as always to all who linked up! This is our time of year Makers. We were made for this! let's see what everyone's been up to this week!

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!
