BFF Open House


Happy Friday Eve all. Hope all of my US Chocoholic Peeps had a wonderful Thanksgiving. I really love having a day that's not about presents etc. but just to be with family and/or friends and be thankful for the good things in our lives. Life is so short! 

And YIKES! Christmas is 20 days from today ( I won't be ready!) and Hanukkah only 17 days away. Here are some ideas from last week's party to make or pin!


While presents might have to wait until the 25th, these can be made and put up now and year after year. DIY Wood Plank Presents from DIY Vibes.  Perfect for indoors or out. 


Much to Mr. Chocolate's chagrin, I love glitter. If you cut me, I will bleed some combo of chocolate and glitter! These Glitter Tags from White House Crafts would make any present pop! Plus, Antonella has some other really cute glitter ideas on her sidebar. 


I am also "mad for Buffalo Plaid"  and it's everywhere! When we were at Disneyland a few weeks ago, they had so many cute things. 3 Winks Design has us covered with all kinds of ideas including how to paint it which is something that's always been a challenge for me!


It's a stocking. It's a wreath. It's a stocking wreath! Whatever you call it, call it so festive and pretty. From Love My Little Cottage

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

BFF Open House Happy Thanksgiving!



Happy Thanksgiving all! I'm headed into the kitchen so just going to put this party up now and wish you all a fabulous "Gobble Til You Wobble" day. Hope however you're spending it, it's a wonderful day to pause and be thankful. I am thankful to have so many talented creative peeps who share their creations here each 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 !

Thanks for stopping by and party on!

BFF Open House Link Party Apology Edition

Soooo...I kinda forgot my own party last week and by the time I realized it, too late! My sincerest apologies. Had some medical stuff on my mind and just oops'd! Hope you all had a wonderful and fun Halloween!

Let's take a look at some of the great ideas shared the week before. 


If you're planning your Thanksgiving dessert table or something to bring, check out this No Bake Apple Cinnamon Swirl Cheesecake from Marilyn's Treats. How perfect for the season! 


A must Pin for next year! These Witch Hats and Broomsticks from Claire Justine are too cute! 


These Owl Soap Bars from Handmade Weekly would be a "hoot" to make and give as a hostess gift if you're going somewhere for Thanksgiving . 



Finally, I'm always looking for more ways to use my Instant Pot. This Tuscan Chicen Pasta from Pots and Planes is definitely one to try! 

OK let's see what all you makers have been up to this week ( and last week lol) !

Happy Friday Eve all and as we get ready to celebrate Halloween, I'm good and scared. You know why? Because Christmas is two months from tomorrow! EEEEEEEEEK!

Lots of fun Halloween ideas shared at last week's party though so before I get ahead of  myself, let's take a look at some of those. 


Once again I am in love with a Halloween Tablescape. This one in black and white from Whispers of the Heart. I'm allergic to cats but could definitely do these! 


If you don't want to do a whole tablescape, this Haunted House centerpiece from Love My Little 
Cottage is so cute! 


Check out this Howling Great Wreath from Satsoma Designs. I absolutely love it! 



3 Winks Design has some fabulous printable Halloween tags you can download . Perfect for goodie bags or your treat table. 


Finally, our furbabies love treats too. I've been wanting to make some treats for our pup and these look perfect! From (and I love the name of this blog) I Have Plans With My Dog

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

Hello and Happy Friday Eve everyone! Hope your week has been a good one. A little calmer on my end ( never fully calm) and can't believe we are halfway through October already. Yeesh! Let's take a look at some ideas shared at last week's party! 


If you are  planning a party or a small Halloween dinner for two, check out the ideas in this Bewitching Tablescape from Whispers of the Heart. I love the colors and layers and EVERYTHING about it. 



I adore this sign from While I Linger ! She did the lettering with a Sharpie! Beautiful. 



Chas's Crazy Creations is back with another Dollar Store find and transformation. A countdown calendar sign to the day after Halloween when the candy is 1/2 off , I mean to Halloween! 


Fall is Caramel Apple season and the only thing better than a Caramel Apple is a Chocolate Caramel Apple! You'll have to visit Butter With a Side of Bread to learn the secret ingredient! 

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

Happy Friday Eve and Happy October all! I'm still learning the "seasons" here in the desert and we are in what I'm calling "Fall Spring" since it's cooled down but still lovely. Popping in stores is how I'm really reminded what time of year it is. 

Let's see some features from last week's party ! I love it when a plan I didn't know I had comes together. The features this week are a Dollar Tree bonanza! 


Love this gorgeous pumpkin makeover of a Dollar Tree pumpkin by Kippi At Home. So elegant and can stay up all Fall. 

This time of year starts my busiest card making season and like Linda from Paper Seedlings , I am always on the lookout for interesting materials to use on my cards. I literally laughed out loud when I saw this because I bought the same self adhesive rhinestone sheet (ok sheets) she used on her card, also from Dollar Tree! 


PINK VELVET pumpkins! Perfect in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness month ( ladies, "check the girls"). Perfect for a new twist on Fall. Perfect because they're no sew. Lisa from Fresh Vintage by Lisa S will show you how to use a Dollar Tree foam pumpkin to make! 

Now let's see what all you creative people have been up to this week!

YIKES! And I'm not saying that because Halloween season is upon us. It's because I realized yesterday that Christmas is 3 months away. 90 days people! It's go time makers. Also, Hanukkah starts on the 22nd so if you've thought to yourself all year about those fabulous handmade gifts you're making for it or for Christmas, "it's time to make the donuts". 

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


I love projects that use up bits and pieces from our stashes. This Artsy Owl from Fluster Buster is perfect for that! Gather up your bits and scraps and make a fun art piece. 


With more awareness of food allergies and sensitivities these days, you can signal that you have allergy friendly treats for Trick or Treaters by having a teal pumpkin on display. Check out this idea from Olivia Ohern.


This is a great lighted sign idea from Chas's Crazy Creations. She found a $5 canvas and added the lights and it totally transforms things. 


If you are into football then this project is perfect for you! Look at this cute DIY Football Inspired Candlestick. So cute! From DIY Party Mom

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