BFF Open House


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 Friday Eve Creative Peeps! I hope you've had a good week and those who celebrated had a Happy Mother's Day. My mom and I agreed we'd celebrate Monday vs Sunday since she had an appointment I was taking her to and after having visitors last week, following three weeks of Mom recovering from her fall, I did N O T H I N G! Talked to our son, Mr. Chocolate made brunch, sat in my chair and it was glorious! 

I saw something that referenced "Maycember" that echoed my thoughts last week that from here on out, it's full speed ahead! 

Let's take a look at some of the creativity shared last week! 

24 Hour Family understands! This Mama needs her coffee. Check out a collection of Coffee Mug Quotes for a favorite mug or tumbler!

Artsy Karma has a collection of 25 Amazing Alcohol Ink on Glass ideas! 

Try It-Like It shared how to upgrade plain Dollar Tree Butterfly Stickers into beautiful ephemera to use in projects!

Yes, I almost always choose a chocolate feature but these Lemon Meringue Pie Cookies from Ann's Entitled Life are so bright and Summery! 

Thank you to everyone who linked up. Can't wait to see what you've got to share this week!

Happy Friday Eve all and can you believe it's exactly TWO WEEKS until American Thanksgiving?! I can't. It is. No!

I had fun this week with a couple of projects to switch up my Thanksgiving decor. I shared Tissue Paper Covered Pumpkins and Paint Pour Pumpkins and busy finishing up my Thanksgiving Cards. This is the time of year I'm at my most creative and tend to have more ideas than time. Wouldn't it make so much sense for me to write them all down and work on them throughout the year? Yes. Do I do that? No. Am I going to try to do that for 2024...we shall see!

You all are busy makers so let's take a look at some of the great ideas shared at last week's party! 

If you're hosting and want to add some new napkin rings to your table, check out these DIY Napkin Rings from Try It Like It

Two Chicks and a Mom shared an easy-to-make Thanksgiving Banner complete with free printables! 

As always Creatively Beth has a festive craft perfect for a Thanksgiving table or as a craft to keep people entertained while the cooking's going on! How cute are these Clothespin Turkeys?

Finally, if you're looking for a new adult beverage for the season, this Caramel Apple Pie Martini from Cindy's Online Recipe Box is absolutely perfect! 

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

Bloop! It's Friday Eve again already and the week has flown by. Thought a bug was getting me but I think I out ran it. Whew. Just absolutely devastating news about Maui. We celebrate our 32nd Anniversary this month and we spent our honeymoon visiting Oahu, Maui, and Kuai, and have been back to the islands several times over the years. The Lahaina area is filled with a lot of history and was designated a National Historic District. My heart goes out to the families and friends of the 36 people we know have been lost so far. 

I hope those of you sending kids back to school are getting through that smoothly. I remember all of the forms and meetings involved.

More wonderful creativity shared at last week's party so let's take a look at a few! 

Artsy Va Va shared this great Dragonfly Wooden Canvas featuring Terra Clay Paint!

Speaking of paint, Try It Like It shared how to use Artesprix paint and shaving cream to make these colorful Coasters.

My French Twist shared how to make a pretty and practical Emergency Kit Pouch to keep those little things we need from time to time. This would also work as a cosmetics bag!

The only thing better than a hot fudge sundae is a Hot Fudge Sundae Cake! From Cindy's Online Recipe Box

BFF Open House Link Party

Happy Friday eve all! Had to check to make sure I wasn't still in Washington because it's SNOWING here where I am in Arizona. Yes, Arizona gets snow at the Grand Canyon , Flagstaff, etc. but I'm nowhere near there. Yikes! 

Now that I'm over ( well not really ) my shock, here are some ideas from  last week's party! 

St. Patrick's Day is next month and even if you aren't Irish or Catholic, it's a fun day to have some fun. How about this cute paper straw wreath from Try It Like It

Do you like to switch up your phone case but don't want to spend a fortune ( have you priced some of them lately?!) ? Check out this DIY makeover from Artsy VaVa

I'm always on the lookout for new papercrafting techniques and I can't wait to try this crayon resist technique Paper Seedlings used to make this card. Love all the shading and the texture! 

Finally, how about this marbled quick bread from Treat N Trick? YUMMY. Perfect to make just because or maybe as a neighbor treat? 

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

Happy Friday Eve all and to all of you in the path of the Polar Vortex...I hope you're staying inside, warm, pipes aren't frozen etc.  PhD Man ( Son ) is smack in the center of it in Chicago and despite is telling him to stay put yesterday just had to go pick up his comics that are released every Wednesday.  Layered up in long underwear, two layers of pants, four shirts, his heaviest coat, boots, scarves two hats and a hood lol. Reminded my of the little brother from "A Christmas Story" 

Image result for a christmas story can't put my arms down

I guess you don't want to hear it's in the high 60's 70's here in the desert? Don't worry. We'll get ours in the Summer when we're living on the Sun. 

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

If you're looking for last minute ideas for your Super Bowl party this weekend, Leslie over at From Play Dates to Parties has got you covered with free printables! 

If you're not much into the big game and want to craft something, Lisa from Fresh Vintage by Lisa S has a great upcycle. Perfect for any leftover gift tins you may have from Christmas. 

Check out these faux leather earrings from Try It Like It.  These were made using the Cricut Maker but could also be done either freehand or using dies I'm sure. 

Finally, one thing I really want to do is be able to attend a blog conference or two.  A Labour of Life has taken the time to help us all out and make a list of upcoming conferences. I recently attended a blogger meetup in advance of Creativation and it was a wonderful opportunity to meet fellow creatives and bloggers and I look forward to doing more of it! 

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