BFF Open House

Happy Friday Eve, all. Hope everyone's had a good week. Finally had a couple of days where I got to switch to my Fall attire of Halloween leggings because it cooled off enough. It's the little things, right? It's also holiday full steam ahead time. I was able to get my house "haunted" so now I can work on Halloween cards for friends and family. 

Lots of great Halloween inspiration at last week's party so let's take a look at some!

My Halloween tastes continue to get creepier so these DIY Halloween Oddities Jars from Studio 27 are right up my creepy alley! 

Those jars would fit right in with this Bone Apetit Tablescape from Master Pieces of  My Life

I'm always in on a good Dollar Store Makeover and this Mirror Upgrade from Crazy Little Lovebirds. Perfect for a gothic Halloween, everyday decor, or both, is perfect!

Finally, it's both Pumpkin Spice and Hot Chocolate season so why not combine them into one? That's what Our Tiny Nest did as well as shared ideas for a Hocus Pocus party! 

Thank you to all who linked up and can't wait to see what creative mischief you've gotten up to this week!

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 Friday Eve and Mother's Day Weekend to everyone celebrating. I qualify that because one of the things I appreciate about getting older is learning that what is joyous for some, isn't always for all. And maybe I'm just in a contemplative mood. Didn't really create anything this past week and I try to keep things focused on the creative here but I also try to keep it real. I lost my favorite cousin who was more like an Aunt. We started losing her to dementia about 6 years ago but she entered hospice a week ago last Friday and then made her transition. 

I mention her here especially because she was a Creative! A lifelong seamstress who immigrated to the US from Trinidad and Tobago worked in the New York garment district, then for a Seattle-based company that for years made a lot of Nordstrom house brand clothing. She was one of those talents who could look at a piece of clothing and whip out a replica. She kept my mom, me, and other relatives in style!  She was also a great cook but like others of her generation, kept my favorite recipes of hers in her head, always promising to share them in a someday that was stolen by dementia. I will continue trying to crack the code to replicate them! 

She honored me by keeping every handmade card or piece of jewelry and encouraged my own creativity.

May flights of angels sing thee to thy rest, Carmen. 

OK let's see some of the creativity shared at last week's party. Do you have a special relative who inspired your creativity? 

I don't know why things look better elevated but they just do. This DIY Painted Wood Riser from Crazy Little Love Birds is just perfect for holding a candle, small plant, or vase. It's also just pretty! 

It's prime party season with graduations, weddings, Memorial Day and Fourth of July gatherings, birthdays, name it. And garlands just make everything seem more festive right? You'll want to check out these DIY Crepe Paper Garlands from Simple Joys. Color possibilities? Endless!

Got buttons? Fabric and craft stores or thrift stores often have bags of assorted colors and sizes and this idea from Artsy Karma to use them to create a fun Button Canvas Art project. 

Finally, doesn't this look delicious? Don't try to cut it though because it's...CAKE PANS! I shouldn't have spoiled it but I didn't want anyone looking for a Strawberry Cake recipe at Studio 27 by Jennifer Adams. It's a fabulous centerpiece for a party or kitchen decor. 

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

Yikes. Another week flew by like that. Happy Halloweekend Creative Peeps! Can you believe Halloween is already here and Thanksgiving isn't far behind. 

Remember last week when I mentioned Summits? Well there's another one I just signed up for and whether you're already a cardmaker or have wanted to become one, this is perfect. Check out the Card Maker Success Summit that will be hosted by Brandi McMahon and sponsored by Stamp Me Some Love on November 12: 

It will be a full day of livestreams with different brands and makers complete with some giveaways. Can't beat the price which is FREE! 

I was also very honored to have my Spooky Season jewelry featured at this week's Vintage Charm Party (held every Wednesday) hosted by Our Hopeful Home!

As always there were so many wonderful ideas shared at last week's party so here are a few. 

Jennifer Adams from Studio 27 shared her thrifted and repurposed Easter to Halloween Tree! Make a note to start scouting the thrift stores now through Spring for one of these! 

Meet Leonard, the Debonair Vampire who graces this tablescape shared by The Yellow Corner Store. Dashing, isn't he? 

I've seen a lot of mushrooms throughout the past couple of years' holiday decor. Check out the ingenious way Cecelia from My Thrift Store Addiction has taken them up a notch with these fragrant and pretty Cinnamon Stick Mushrooms. Love these! 

Finally, need a quick but fun snack for Halloween? You can't go wrong with these Edible Spiderwebs from Simple Joys!

Thank you to everyone who linked up. I love seeing all of your creations. 

Let's take a look at what everyone's been up to this week. I hope you have a wonderful Halloweekend and a

Happy Friday Eve! Happy JUNE! Yikes. Things have a way of speeding up from here. It's hard to believe we're already in the sixth month of 2022 but here we are. Hope you've all had a wonderful week. June is Graduation and Wedding season as well as the end of school for many. I remember the excitement of counting down the days until the end of the school year, even though it's been "a minute". 

Very honored to have received not one but TWO Hometalk features recently! The first for a Summer project I did a while ago: Easy Summer Decor . The second is for a more recent project: Layered Rose Monogram.  If you're not familiar with Hometalk, you really should check it out. Not only is it another great source of inspiration, but they are also so supportive of creative bloggers with things like features, webinars, newsletters etc. You can follow me on there here. There are also sister sites for DIY Fashion and Cooking. Upstyle and Foodtalk

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

Two Chicks and a Mom shared these awesome DIY Graduation Pinatas that are so cute! 

You "do nut" want to miss this idea from Studio 27 by Jennifer Adams. Baking Pans Turned Wall Decor! Calorie free. 

I did something similar when my son was young and there's something about kids having something fun to check off doing their chores, Summer or all year round. This is a great one from Lamberts Lately is perfect! 

Finally, ice cream just screams Summer and what better way to celebrate the season than with some DIY Wall Art / Summer Ice Cream Painting?! From Love My Little Cottage. 

Thanks to everyone who shared their amazing creativity and let's see what you've been up to this week!

Happy Friday Eve all. Big weekend ahead for everyone celebrating Passover which starts tomorrow, and Easter. Spring is humming happily along. Next up we'll be preparing for Mother's Day, Graduations, etc. Hope you've all had a great week. I know there have been some crazy weather swings. Saw a hail storm in Seattle and my son told me it was like the Wizard of Oz in his neck of the woods. 

Here are a few of the amazing and inspiring projects that caught my eye from last week's part! 

How cute are these Bunny and Chick Beanbags from Creatively Beth?! These are huggable size. 

I love paper flowers and they can be used for so many different things. Love this pretty Spring Wreath from Crafts a la Mode

One of the easiest and most inexpensive ways to change up your decor is making a DIY Canvas like this one from Studio 27. All of the craft stores have stock up sales throughout the year and I make sure to do so! Paint and vinyl and instant wall art! 

Confession: I am not a Sushi fan. Want to be. Have tried to be. Just can't. Our son loves it, as does everyone we know it seems. But Oreo Sushi? Now, this has my name on it! From Drugstore Divas

Thank you to EVERYONE who linked up and WELCOME to first-timers. 

Now let's see what you've all been up to this week! Again, whatever you may be celebrating this weekend, Happy Happy!
