BFF Open House Link Party #113

The Answer Is Chocolate

Happy Friday eve once again . I can't even tell you how excited I am this week because COLLEGE BOY comes home on Sunday! He spent most of the Summer at school doing an internship (paid yeah!) and he'll be home for a break before his Junior year begins. Can't believe I just typed Junior year either. Yup. 

Let's take a look at some great ideas from last week's party. 

Totally loving this charm bracelet from Jewelry Making Journal. Shabby chic chunky fun! 

Burlap hates me. I mean it really does. Every burlap project I try looks like, well, we'll keep it G rated. Laura from The Shed has inspired me to try once more with this fun monogram project using burlap, paint and board. 

I love PicMonkey and I love learning how to improve my photos. Bethany from Pitter and Glink does too and has some wonderful tips to share. 

I've been a lifelong gift wrapper. Can't imagine giving a gift that's not wrapped. Still, I don't think you have to break the bank to make it special. Christine from I Dig Pinterest has some tips and ideas for pretty (and fast)  packaging. 

My chocolate feature this week combines all my faves: chocolate, coconut, chocolate. Isn't the best part of an ice cream cone the last bite? And a chocolate cone? Go visit Pint Sized Baker for the details. 

Now on to this week's party! Let's see what everyone's been up to this week.

What an awesome surprise to have my burlap plaque featured! Thank you so much, my friend! And I think you need to try it again, as I can't imagine you not being able to craft something fantastic with burlap! :)
