January Open House Link Party!

Welcome to the first monthly Open House link party of the New Year here at The Answer Is Chocolate! I’ve seen some awesome projects around the blogosphere since the New Year began…lots of fresh ideas in home dec and DIY and tons of super cute ideas for Valentine’s Day ( THE chocolate holiday of the year!)

Nothing’s changed since last year. Link up whatever you’ve been working on…jewelry, apparel, papercrafts, cards, DIY, organization ideas, you name it. Please link to your specific post and not your main blog and please, no Etsy stores or businesses. That’s it!
I’m also very excited and honored to be celebrating reaching 500 Followers! That’s just a mind boggling number to me. Since I’m still working on getting into the sponsor thing, I’ll celebrate with a giveaway of something from me to you. I had so many nice comments on my “Upcycled Heart” that brought back my mojo for 2011, that I’ve made one to give away, and I'm also including a Parisian themed altered candle that says "Merci" to show my thanks:
To be eligible, you have to be a follower and leave a comment, whether you link something up or not. I'll use random.org to choose the winner on Monday !

OK time to link up!

Hi, Carol. So sorry that I missed the party. I saw the link on my blog roll at work. My computer at work always gives me an error for your blog and won't let me link up. Just put you on my calendar though for February. Hate to miss it! You know I follow. Take care!
