BFF Open House

 


Happy Friday Eve and Happy December Creative Peeps! Can you believe it? This is the month we were made for! I hope everyone had a lovely Thanksgiving and all leftovers have been taken care of. It was both wonderful and strange not to have to deal with that this year since we ran away. It was a wonderful escape getaway and may become a new tradition. 

I made my first Christmas gift for the place where we board our furbaby here: Pet Ornament and Card and started working on Hanukkah gifts this week. I finished this year's holiday cards before our trip so now I just have to get them in the mail. Will share those as soon as they're off. 

Now, let's see some of the wonderful ideas you shared at last week's party! 


The thing I love about fellow Creatives is the ability to see ideas in things that have nothing to do with the finished project. Enter this brilliant Trio of Trees from found Thrift Store items shared by the appropriately titled My Thrift Store Addiction



Likewise, if you've got some silver spoons you've inherited or picked up while thrifting, check out this lovely idea from The House On Silverado that transformed them into Keepsake Spoon Ornaments!   


It's card season and Paper Seedlings shared a gorgeous Snowflake Card. We must be on the same wavelength because I used some blues in my cards this year too! 


Finally, after a busy day of Elfing, relax with this delicious Chocolate Raspberry Truffle Cocktail from The Kitchen Is My Playground. Hot, or cold! 

Thank you as always to everyone who linked up. A lot of busy people out there! Let's see what everyone's been up to this week.

Whatever you're doing today, including nothing at all, wishing you a day of peace. I'm thankful for my family and our blessings. 

Going to open things up early and just do links, no features this week. We ran away from home and for the first time in over 30 years, I am not in the kitchen! Be well creative friends!

Happy Friday Eve Creative Peeps! Can you believe Thanksgiving (American) is one week from today? You know what happens after that. It's full steam ahead for Christmas and Hanukkah. I'm almost done with this year's Christmas cards since for the first time in thirty years, I won't be hosting Thanksgiving. We're actually going away which will be completely different yet exciting for us. I loved doing it and with my Martha Stewart compulsions, always did it big, but last year when it was just the two of us for the first time...my mom was visiting her sister, we didn't have any other family to host since moving to AZ etc. I realized by not doing all the work how much work it really always was. No complaints! I loved all the years I did it but life is about trying something new and I'm actually really excited about it. This week I shared the Thanksgiving Cards I made and sent to family and friends. 

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


If this is your first time hosting or you would like to be better organized, then Blue Sky At Home has the perfect thing for you with 21 Ways to Prepare.



Whether your guests are young, older, or everywhere in between, this printable Thankful Tree from Creatively Beth is a great way to entertain them and make a memory. 


As we get close to counting down to Christmas, I LOVE this Advent Calendar for Couples from The House on Silverado


Finally, while we're still on Thanksgiving, if you want to add a little something to your dessert table (and I'm all for adding chocolate to Thanksgiving which is the most chocolate free celebration) or bring a dessert where you're going, check out these Nutter Butter Acorns from Drugstore Divas

Thanks to everyone who linked up and let's see what you've been up to this week!

Happy Friday Eve all. Thanks again for understanding my oops on last week's party. Our "seasons" change when they decide to and I think Fall allergies are acting as my nemesis right now. I hope everyone's had a great and creative week! I was very excited and honored to have my Copper and Silver Earrings featured in the Upstyle newsletter this week. If you're not familiar with Upstyle, it's the sibling site to Hometalk and features DIY Fashion projects. My infatuation with copper extended to these Textured Copper Candles and Silver and Copper Pumpkins


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



This gorgeous card from Paper Seedlings is perfect any time of year (especially the message) but is so perfect for Fall isn't it? The color blending is gorgeous. 


Speaking of perfect for Fall, check out these DIY Fall Bracelets (that should totally be shared on Upstyle BTW) from Within A World of My Own. Coordinated to match Fall outfits, there are several combos to see. 



With Christmas on our heels, there's always room for a new Tree Topper and you will NEVER guess the genius trick Lamberts Lately used for this one. If you do guess it (no cheating!) you're better than me! 

Finally, I love all of the creativity that's sprung up around charcuterie boards and this S'Mores Board from Rose Bakes is no exception. Rose also includes how to do this with or without a fire pit! 


Thanks to everyone who linked up and can't wait to see what you've all 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 once again friends! This week seems to have flown by for no particular reason. It feels like Monday was yesterday. Then again, I saw a meme that was so accurate which said when someone says 30 years ago I think the 70s when they meant the 90s. The years fly by! 

This week I shared some jewelry gifts I made for friends for "Spooky Season". I love that so many fun beads and charms are available.

And of course, you all were up to your usual creative brilliance with the projects shared at last week's party so let's take a look at some of those!



I adore this "Spooktacular" Bone Appetit Tablescape from Masterpieces of My Life! What an elegant ghostly setting! 



This Chandelier Witch Hat would go so well with the Bone Appetit Tablescape, wouldn't it? From Thrifting Wonderland


If you're not big on Halloween and/or as you start to plan a transition to Thanksgiving, these Copper Pumpkins from The House on Silverado are perfect. Living in the "copper state" I'm planning on doing more copper for Thanksgiving. 
 

Finally, if you're looking for an addition to your Halloween or Thanksgiving dessert table, check out this Pumpkin Nutella Earthquake Cake from Lamberts Lately. I was not familiar with an Earthquake Cake, so here's the definition shared with the recipe: "An Earthquake Cake is a fun way to integrate lots of different ingredients into one cake." Works for me! 

Thank you to everyone who linked up! Let's see what everyone's been up to this week.
