A DIY Lover's Gift Guide

I don't know about you, but I love a good DIY. Whether it's something I came up with on my own, a pre-made DIY kit, a project I found on an amazing DIY site or I'm putting my own spin on a DIY someone else came up with -- DIY's are always fun.

Do you have someone in your life that loves to DIY? I've compiled some great kits & classes below that would make any do-it-yourself fan ecstatic!

One more thing -- the amazing people at Brit+Co (legit one of my favorite sites) are offering eight online classes right now FO' FREE!  Yes!  For a limited time, you can learn how to:

Seriously, though, what are you waiting for? The classes are totally free (for a limited time, so hurry up & get on that!) & once you 'buy' them, you have unlimited access to watch them as much as you like! Such an awesome idea, brought to you by the lovely people at Brit & Co. & FedEx! 

I was not compensated for this post, nor does it contain affiliate links, I just like 
the products in the gift guide & wanted to share the class links with you all. Enjoy!

Happy Friday everyone! Thanks for joining us again for That Friday Blog Hop which goes live every Thursday evening at 10pm EST. So join us each week & link up your blogs, social media outlets, or anything you'd love to share.

I wanted to thank everyone who has participated over the last 5 and a half years. I am sad to say, this will be the last That Friday Blog Hop post. It just seems life has me pulled in a lot of ways and I can no longer keep up with this. I can't believe that this blog hop started on 3-17-2011 and still continued on. Thank you all for the amazing support. -Rebecca

[GIVEAWAY] Celebration by Frey™ and Sixlets™ Spooky Treats Event

It's a Celebration by Frey & Sixlets Giveaway! As you all know, I'm a huge candy fan plus I LOVE Halloween -- it's my absolute favorite, so of course I had to jump at the chance to design some spirited & spooky treats featuring Frey & Sixlets candies.

I made a mini candy bar to show you all the goodies I used to create my spooky treats. These tasty trick-or-treats were made using Sixlets 8-ball Tube Halloween Mix, Witch’s Brew, Black, Orange & Lime Green Sixlets, Halloween Mix Sixlets, Shimmer White Sixlets, Shimmer Orange Sixlets, Shimmer Lavender Pearls, Shimmer White Pearls, Shimmer Lime Green Pearls, and Googlie Eyes Gumballs.

I'm throwing a little Halloween themed get-together soon but wanted to test out some ideas first so I can decide on what I want to serve at the party. I really like using Celebration by Frey and Sixlets products when I decorate treats because not only are they super affordable, but they've got an incredibly colorful selection that allows me to get as creative as I want with my designs. If you get inspired to make your own ghastly goodies, you can head down to your local Walmart, Wegmans, Meijer, etc. (any major retailer should have them, really), pick some up and join in on the fun.

I made some spooky sugar cookies using Shimmer White Pearls, Shimmer Lavender Pearls, Orange Sixlets, Black Sixlets & Googlie Eyes. I think they turned out super cute!

I also made some hauntingly good white chocolate fudge using the Sixlets 8-ball Tube Halloween Mix & the Witches Brew mix. It turned out terrifyingly tasty!

So, I've got some great news! The Fashionistas, along with Celebration by Frey and Sixlets, are hosting a MAJOR giveaway! There are 25 blogs on a linky below who are each giving away $50 Celebration by Frey™ and Sixlets® Prize Packs! You could win a $50 selection of Fall/Halloween Celebration by Frey decorative candies including gumballs, sixlets, crumbles and pearls!
