Happy Friday Eve All! I hope everyone's had a good week and looking forward to a long weekend and the unofficial/official kick-off of Summer. I'm not sure if we've officially had a 100-degree day yet but it's imminent. 

Anyone else get an email from JoAnn showing they already have Halloween in?! And it's 40% off. 

There's still lots of time for remaining Spring and Summer crafting though and here are some ideas from last week's party!


Try It Like It shared yet another fun way to play with Sharpie Markers to make this colorful Tag Background. 




Sonata Home Design shared how to Decoupage Under Glass but with a twist: a textured plate. 


Master Pieces of My Life shared how to transform ordinary cans into these beautiful Moss Covered Containers.

Finally, with warmer weather no-bake treats are wonderful. These No Bake Truffles from At Home With Lisa are just the thing. 

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

Wishing everyone a safe and happy Memorial Day weekend.

Happy Chocolate Recovery Day aka the day after Valentine's Day. I hope if you celebrated, you had a LOVEly day. We're still recovering from COVID so it was low-key. We're longtime married and don't make too much of it anyway since we have made it a priority to express our love all the time. 

This week I shared the Valentine's Day cards I made for family and friends. Life's uncertainties make it important to me to let the people I love, know. 

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


You have to check out this Nightstand Transformation from A Ray of Sunlight! Magnificent!


Sonata Home Design shared 29 Ways to Add Colorful Home Decor. Perfect as we get through often dreary months. 



As much as love crafting tech, there's something to be said about analog techniques. This Double Stencil Tutorial from Try It Like It Create It, is one of those. 


Finally, is there anything you can't make in an air fryer, including Red Velvet Cookies like these from the appropriately named Air Fryer Fanatics?

Thanks to everyone who linked up and can't wait to see what great inspiration you'll share this week!

Happy Friday Eve again already! Hope you've all had a good week that's flown by and let me be obnoxious by pointing out that it's exactly 11 months from today until Christmas 😂so if you made a commitment to get started early this year on Christmas gifts...

I did my first sublimation project this week! I really like the printer I got although I forget that it cycles through periodically on its own to check ink levels and can startle me. I shared my First Sublimation Project a little bag I can use for miscellaneous things when traveling. 

If you got a Circut machine for the holidays last year, you will want to attend this upcoming workshop hosted by Abbi Kirsten. She's a great teacher! Feb 5th through 9th. 


Time to take a look at some of the inspiring ideas shared at last week's party! 


If you're a Dollar Tree regular you've seen these tin tiles. Take them to another level like Artsy Va Va did here with this Faux Tin Tile Heart


Hunny I'm Home DIY shared this fun Rae Dunn-inspired Conversation Heart Sign, a fun addition to Valentine's Decor. 



Living in the desert, I'm a sucker for succulents. Not being much of a gardener, this Faux Succulent Centerpiece from Crazy Little Lovebirds is perfect and works for any climate! 




Finally, check out these extra-special brownies from Sonata Home Design, Symphony Brownies made with Hersey's Symphony bars. 

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

Happy Friday Eve, all and how is it time for another party already? It feels like the last one just started! Time is flying by and we have ELEVEN days left til Christmas! PLENTY of time for more Elfing, right?

This week I shared a fabulous thrifty find I turned into a Christmas Vignette:


along with an "old" canvas I repurposed into a Textured Winter Painting:


You all shared some wonderful projects last week so let's take a look at a few.





I had so much fun making my own paper bag snowflakes/stars. Imagine my great honor and surprised to be mentioned in a post by Fresh Vintage by Lisa S when she not only shared hers, but also added Book Page Snowflakes/Stars



Sonata Home Design shared a great tutorial on how to make one of my favorites: A bold Statement Ornament Wreath using pool noodles! 



Creatively Beth shared this adorable Polymer Clay Gingerbread Man that can be used for so many things from a keychain to a package topper. 


Finally, Cindy's Online Recipe Box shared these Hot Cocoa Marshmallow Cookies with Silver non-pareils. 

Thanks to all who shared and as always, can't wait to see what you've been up to this week!

Happy Friday Eve, and Happy November! Thanks for holding down the fort while I ran away to Disneyland last week where we had more fun than people our age are supposed to have, and thankful that our feet and backs were up to the challenge. 😂 

We alternated between Disneyland and California Adventure day to day and then on the last day went back and forth between the two. We hadn't been since right before COVID and there are some changes to things like their former "Fast Path" program, and the need for park reservations in addition to your ticket,  so if you're planning a trip, read up ahead of time. 

There were also a few new rides / attractions since we were there last which of course we had to try and LOVED. Disneyland: Rise of the Resistance in Galaxy's Edge and Runaway Railroad in Toon Town. CA Adventure: Spiderman Web Slingers in the Avengers Campus. Both parks were all decked out for Halloween and next time we go for Halloween we plan on doing the "Oogie Boogie Bash" which is held after California Adventure closes. The costumes we saw on "mature adults" like us down to the youngest, were amazing!

I hope you all had a fun and safe Halloween and now let's take a look at some ideas shared over the past two weeks! 

Steph Creates shared this Fall "Book Stack" project using something from her regular source: Dollar Tree. What a perfect Fall accent to mark the transition from Halloween to Christmas! 



Sonata Home Design has a great roundup of Thanksgiving Decor ideas including these Wrapped Wheat Stalks which would make a lovely accent to any table! 


Maybe you're refreshing some things before holiday entertaining or there's a gift you'd like to make for someone. Artsy VaVa has a wonderful Secret Path to a Table Makeover tutorial on how to make over a table! Design possibilities are endless. 

Finally, whether as an addition to your own Thanksgiving goodies or to make as hostess or neighbor gifts, Cindy's Online Recipe Box share this marvelous Double Drizzle Pumpkin Surprise Marble Cake!

Thanks as always to everyone who linked up. Don't forget to change your clocks this weekend! We don't so I'll get to be confused for a few weeks 😢.

It's Fall Y'all. Do you know how I know despite it still being 100 degrees where I am? I've already seen the annual Balsam Hill Christmas tree ads, Walmart and others have Christmas trees up, and Michaels has their Christmas paper stacks out. See? You know it's FALL when Christmas appears. 

"But seriously"...I love Fall even though it's brief here in the desert. We are surrounded by pecan groves in Southern AZ and I can't wait until they're ready to harvest. Let's take a look at some inspiring Fall ideas shared at last week's party! 


Halloween first. These Cute and Spooky Halloween Ghost Candles from The House on Silverado are fun and festive, plus made elegant in the crystal candle holders!



The Apple Street Cottage shared some beautiful ideas showing How to Decorate for Fall on a Budget.


Maybe you've foud some vintage silverware while thrifting or have some family pieces that just sit in a drawer. Fresh Vintage by Lisa S showed how to transform them into Beads, Jewelry, and Home Decor items.


Finally, Sonata Home Design shared these absolutely gorgeous Fall Leaf Pie Crust Cookies. Too pretty to eat! 

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