BFF Open House

 


Happy Friday Eve all! I hope everyone who celebrated Mother's Day had a very happy one. Mr. Chocolate made me a lovely breakfast, I had a great call from my son who was holed up with COVID, and made The Mumster a special dinner. The best news of the week is that as of today, our son tested negative for COVID and so glad he was vaxxed and boosted. Whew! 

I'm working on a very special project I'm not ready to share yet but just a heads up that I probably won't be creating much over the next several weeks. Not that I've been doing tons lately anyway but still...

Lots of fun things shared at last week's party so let's take a look at some fun projects. 


Who did string art as a kid? I had fun doing it with scraps of wood and did a piece a couple of years ago at a DIY studio. Creatively Beth is back with a wonderful and fun way to do it to make a card! Who wouldn't like to receive something this cute? 


I always worry that no one shares my macabre sense of humor and then someone like Wendy from My French Twist comes along and lets me know I'm not alone. You may remember I found some creepy doll heads last Halloween so it shouldn't surprise you that this cracked me up and I had to share! 


Artsy VaVa is back with another fabulous makeover. This time of a footed Sewing Box. This would make such a great storage addition to any room! 


Finally, Nutella? Check. Banana? Check. Beautiful Yeast Bread? Check Check Check. From Treat and Trick. This is both beautiful and one of my favorite flavor profiles! 

Wishing you all a peaceful and happy weekend and can't wait to see all of the creativity you've been up to this week!

Happy almost last week of April if you can believe it! I hope everyone had a nice Easter and Passover as it winds down. Seems like Spring is doing it's usual "am I in or am I out" in some places while here in the desert, I'm still not used to starting to wear shorts in April but with temps nearing 100, that's where I am. 

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


I was entranced by the world of Harry Potter from the time my husband brought the first book home from a bookfair for our son. I've also loved the "Fantastic Beasts" movies and look forward to seeing the newest one. If you're unfamiliar with them, one of the characters is a a baker and Me and My Inklings has the cutest project inspired by the movie: Bowtruckle Bread with printable labels! 


Who doesn't have a used jar candle they've stared out wondering how to repurpose? Sum of Their Stories has a great upcyle project with the details on how to turn it into a useful pincushion!



Pinatas are so much fun to have at parties, whether for kids or adults. Artsy Fartsy Mama shared how to make this adorable DIY Donut Pinata


Finally and to paraphrase Duff  Goldman from Spring Baking Championship "There are a lot of bad brownies out there. This isn't one of them" when he was giving feedback to a contestant. These look like EXACTLY my kind of brownies which I've found are harder than it seems to make from scratch and get the same gooey texture as some box mixes. From Treat and Trick

OK, let's see what everyone's been up to this week and as always, thanks for sharing your creations here!

Hellos and happy Friday Eve all. Hope you all had a nice Valentine's Day. We're low key V-Day people which I think happens when you've been married for 30 years! It was just our speed. Our favorite pizza and being with each other. 

I do however love making Valentine's cards for friends and family so this week I shared the ones I made this year here: Layered Geometric Heart Valentine's Cards

Another week of creativity and inspiring projects shared by all of you so let's take a look at some of the wonderful ideas! 



I've been fortunate to have a dedicated crafting space and I know not everyone is. Love My Little Cottage shared her joy at creating a multi-use space she now has where as she puts it she can "paint with abandon". It's beautiful! 



How brilliant is this?! From The Apple Street Cottage, an ingenious way to use a pizza peel as the backdrop for a wreath! I love this so much and have a pizza peel we don't ever use. 



I love a good upcycle. There's something so fulfilling about transforming something considered "trash" into a beautiful treasure. My Thrift Store Addiction shows us how to take spritzer cans and transform them int beautiful vases. 


Finally, how YUM is this Chocolate Marble Quick Bread from Treat and Trick? So YUM! 


Thank you to EVERYONE who linked up. I love seeing your creations each week. The world is a better place with creatives in it. Now let's see what everyone's been up to this week!

Happy first full week of the New Year everyone. Hope it's off to a creative start for you all. Let's take a look at some ideas from last week's party!


Even with the calendars available on our phones, laptops, tablets etc. it's still nice to have an "old school" calendar. I adore these shadowbox calendars from Common Sparrows who has free templates you can download! 


I don't really do resolutions but I do try to have things I like to focus on in the year. This Reusable Gratitude Board from Chas' Crazy Creations is a wonderful way to remind ourselves of the things for which we are grateful and can be used year after year since it's dry erase. 


These Plum Hand Pies from Treat and Trick look delicious and would be great for Valentine's Day but I am especially intrigued by the "two ingredient crust" . 

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

Happy Friday Eve and day after Christmas all. Hope everyone celebrating Christmas had a wonderful one. It was a fun day at Casa Chocolate. 

Let's see some ideas from last week's party!


I love the simplicity and impact of this red painted framed Scrabble tile word art from DIY Vibes ! Smaller frames would work well as ornaments too. 



Artsy Va Va is back with this creative beadboard Christmas tree, mounted to a piece of corrugated metal. Rustic and festive!


Speaking of creative trees, check out this rake head turned Christmas tree door wreath from My Thrift Store Addiction


Finally, and this would be great for a New Year's brunch table, check out this gorgeous Braided Nutella Brioche from Treat and Trick. YUM! 

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

Happy Friday Eve all and Happy Mother's Day weekend to all who are celebrating. Been a crazy week so let's get straight to the features from last week's party. 


Let's start with a DIY Basket Makeover from Busy Lifestyle Gal. Would have been tempting to drop this off at Goodwell etc. but look what some spray paint can do. Re-purpose completed!



Here's another easy, fun, DIY from Three Winks Design, a Monthly Magnetic Poster Frame! 


If you still need a Mother's Day Card, Suzer Space has you covered with this one which is downloadable and printable! 


Finally, if you have some overripe bananas here's a great way to use them up from Treat and Trick :  Cocoa Banana Bars! 

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

Happy May all. BTW how did it get to be MAY already?!  I took a much needed little Spring Break last week so didn't do any features but let's take a look at some of the fun ideas that were shared. 


I have been in love with Hairpin Leg projects for a while now. I am seriously in love with these DIY Wood Slice Hairpin Leg tables from Kippi At Home


Perfect transition to this next project from Busy Lifestyle Gal, these beautiful Succulent Planters, upcycled from yogurt containers! Real talk: I have bought this yogurt specifically for the glass container but I'm boring and use them to hold my pens. Think I need to get some more! 



I keep passing these skeins of GIANT yarn at the store and haven't known what to do w/ them. Now I do. I love these pillows by Yarn Scissors Silk which uses one of the basic knitting stitches I know how to do! 



Finally, when I'm not eating chocolate, I'm drinking coffee. OK I combine them and drink iced mochas but these Coffee Biscuits from Treat and Trick look like the perfect pairing with any coffee drink or just on their own! 


Now, let's see what you've all been up to this week!
