"Christmas" ( and More) Open House Link Party!

Welcome, one and all to the first ever linky party at The Answer Is Chocolate! So glad you're here. What better time to have a holiday themed link party than in the middle of Summer? It's never to early to get ready for the holidays, so I thought I'd do this once a month through September, then weekly! Please link up decor, cards, gifts you've made, recipes...anything that goes from Halloween through New Year's! I realize it's early yet so even if it's not for / from this year, link it up because a lot of us are new since last holiday season and who can't use a new inspiring idea?

One of the things I love about the blogging community is how supportive everyone is of each other, especially us newbies. So please please please visit  at least two other links won't you? And leave them some bloggy comment love?

Christmas Open House Link Party Rules:
  • Link to your specific post, not your main blog
  • Describe your linked item  and don't just list your blog name
  • Please grab my button and place in your post on on your sidebar
  • No fruitcake ( just kidding...mostly) 
To celebrate my first link party and reaching the 200 ( now 219!) follower mark, I'm giving away a little something to get us in the spirit:

And what's a stocking without stuffers? So it will come with some goodies that may or may not include chocolate ! To qualify for the giveaway:
  • Link up something to this party
  • Leave a comment 
  • Be or become a follower 
Both the giveaway and party will close at midnight Sunday July 18.

I think I did it right! :)

Jingle said...

Well, I happen to be EXTRA fond of the name of this fabulous stocking! ;-)

Michele {The Scrap Shoppe} said...

Yay! I didn't realize we could link up Halloween projects until I read the blog today. Fun! You're making me want to get started on a Halloween wreath I had planned for this year. Looking forward to seeing all of the entries! :)

This was very fun. I'm going to have to do something like this some day. I might need your help.

I just came over to say "Hi!" I hope you have a great weekend!

Michelle L. said...

Yay, this is such a fun party already! I'm going to have to come up with something for next month...ooh, I'm already getting inspired. I always love to think ahead for gift giving, so thank you for starting up this feature.

Christine said...

I forgot to leave a comment before...there are some great things here at your party!

I love this idea!! I just learned of it from the Food Floozie and have my link posted. I've grabed your button twice (blog/sidebar) and have started following you too. Hope you come visit me and decide to follow me, I'd love it if we were blogging buddies. Can't have too many of those. :)

I've found some lovely ideas! If I weren't on vacation I would share the Christmas cards I've made. But, I guess I'll have to link up with last year's post on Buckeyes/

Oh, I wish I had seen this party earlier! I saw your adorable stocking featured on 504. Love it! Following you now...I thought I already was. Finished the faux zinc dresser by the way.

Happy Monday.
