BFF Open House


Greetings all! Hope anyone dealing with higher temps than normal is keeping cool. It's monsoon season in the desert which means storms and humidity. The amazing lightning storms the past few nights have been light shows and almost (ALMOST) make the humidity worth it. 

I've been exploring some modern art and have had fun with a few projects. I shared one here: DIY Modern Wall Art. Working on a couple of others I'll share soon. 

Starting to see Halloween creeping into the stores so the full-press holiday season will be upon us before we know it. Let's take a look at some of the fun ideas from last week's party! 

This thrifted table transformation from Junk Is My Life is the perfect addition to any room. Love the color! 

This portable DIY TicTac Toe game from Creatively Beth is all kinds of perfect. Fun to make, especially as a boredom buster wtih kids, fun to take on the go  with the storage pouch used as the board. 

If you're looking for some jumpstart inspiration for Christmas, and it's never to soon to start getting ready, check out these ideas from Two Chicks and a Mom

Finally, these Chocolate Snaps are pefect to bake and eat or freeze for use later. I love these kins of cookies for cheesecake crusts or crushed at the bottom or chocolate pudding or mousse. From Cindy's Online Recipe Box

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

BFF Open House


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!

BFF Open House


Happy Friday Eve all! Hope that everyone has had an uneventful week! Uneventful has become my favorite word. We had a little surprise snow here in the desert! I live in the foothills of the "Valley of the Sun" so it was a but of a shock! 

January is not going by slowly is it? How are we at the end already with February on our heels which means lots of Valentine's and Galentine's Day fun! Let's take a look at some of the ideas shared at last week's party. 

My latest projects are here and here : DIY Leather and Silver Earrings and How to Make a Card Without Fancy Tools

If you have a collection of family memories like Vintage Valentines, The House on Silverado has a great way to make a current piece of Valentine decor using them! 

How pretty is this Ombre Felt Fringed Heart from Creatively Beth! You can adapt to whatever your Valentine's color palette is. 

Masterpieces of My Life shared Six Decor Ideas for Valentine's Day including these beautiful Romantic French Labeled Bottles!

Finally, Two Chicks and A Mom has Valentine's Sugar Cookies that would be perfect to make for that someone special! 

As always, thanks to EVERYONE who linked up and let's see what you've all been up to this week!

Happy one week until Christmas Eve Friday Eve all! How on earth is it one week until Christmas? Although that puts us closer to the end of 2020 which isn't a bad thing. You've been busy elves so let's see what you've been up to. 

I love vignettes and how you can incorporate everyday decor items into seasonal decor. Mary Jo from Masterpieces of My Life shows exactly how to do that with her post on baubles in crates. Giving a wider view and a closeup view. 

You really need to check out the whole post to appreciate!

Artsy VaVa is back with another gorgeous painted and stenciled sign and the grain sack accent stripes and boxwood "O" really make it pop! 

Two Chicks and a Mom shared this bright and fun wreath made with supplies from one of my go to places, the Dollar Tree. Perfect to leave up all Winter! Not only is it fun and festive, it has a special story. Please read the whole post. 

Naush from Doodlebuddies shared these Simple and Elegant Christmas trees you can still make for this year or pin for next. 

Thanks as always for sharing your creations here each week. I love seeing what you've all been up to even if I don't always have time to comment. 

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

BFF Open House Link Party

Happy Friday Eve and not sure how it's already the end of January already. Hope you've all had a creative week and those of you watching the big "Sportsball" game are ready. 

Let's take a look at some ideas from last week's party!

Even if you think you're not a jewelry maker, you can make this cute Valentine's Charm Necklace shared by The DIY Dreamer. How fun would these be for Moms, Sisters, Daughters Grandmas etc.? So many possibilities and easy to find supplies! 

Another fun thing to make for yourself or to give as a gift ( Galentine's / Valentine's Day) is a lip scrub like this DIY Orange and Brown Sugar one from Kiku Corner.  They are so great for exfoliating and getting that dead skin off, making your lips ready for moisturizing and of course, kissing!

I see lots of creative Hot Cocoa bars around the holidays and love this Chocolate 'n Chintz Valentine's Coffee Corner from Love My Little Cottage . There's something for everyone. Coffee lovers, chocolate lovers, neither, both! 

And finally, wouldn't these Valentine's Sugar Cookies be perfect in that Coffee Corner? From Two Chicks and a Mom

OK now let's see what you've all been up to this week!

Happy Friday Eve all! Can you believe that this time next week we'll have spent the week cooking, eating, and right about now passing out in a food coma? Some of us ( not me!) may even be out shopping. 

Had a WONDERFUL getaway to Disneyland last week. It is always magical but one of the items on my bucket list has been to see it decorated for the Holidays and it did not disappoint! It was like running away to the North Pole ( in 90 degree weather by the last day lol).  I'll share pics in a separate post next week, 

You've all been busy busy busy so here are a few more features than usual! 

If you're planning your Thanksgiving tablescape check out this colorful and beautiful Jeweled Tone one from Bird's Party

Whether you're celebrating Christmas, Hanukkah, Winter, or the "Frozen" sequel that opens on Friday, these magical snowflakes from White House Crafts would be a perfect addition to your decor! In these case they're used for a garland, but so many possibilities! 

Abbotts At Home has a great roundup of 40+ Christmas Projects that you should definitely check out

Buffalo check remains popular and we saw tons of it in the Christmas decor at Disneyland. Penny's Vintage Treasures has a beautiful fireplace vignette. 

Embroidery Hoop wreaths are so simple but pack such a punch. This one from DIY Vibes is no exception! 
I am on record as complaining that there is not enough chocolate associated with Thanksgiving. This Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Cake from Two Chicks and a Mom takes care of that problem! 

And finally, whether you're celebrating the "Frozen" sequel or just looking for a different take on hot chocolate, check out Elsa's White Hot Chocolate from Lindsay's Sweet World !

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