BFF Open House Link Party #118

The Answer Is Chocolate

Happy happy HAPPY haPpY Friday Eve.  So excited because The Mumster is arriving tomorrow. Of course she's turning around and leaving in a couple of days for an Alaskan cruise! Poor baby. 

Thanks to everyone who linked up last week. Awesome ideas as always. Here are just a few features. 

It's back to school time . I miss shopping for back to school supplies so I live vicariously through other people. School supplies for College Boy pretty much boil down to pens but I miss the days of crayons and colored pencils Although as a crafter, it's a great time to stock up on things like white glue for crackling things.  

. Optimistic Mommy has a bright and thoughtful back to school Teacher Appreciation gift. 

Great crafting minds must think alike because I also love this Teacher's Gift idea from Just Dip It In Chocolate . I think I might have to make one of these to fill with malted milk balls for my desk. 

Any Mad Men fans out there? College Boy is addicted to the show. It's Always Ruetten  linked up her "Drab to Draper" chair transformation which turned out great. 

Warning. Serious Chocolate Ahead!

Yes you read that right. 2+ pound chocolate brownies! Yes please. Go visit True Blue Baking for the recipe. If. You. Dare! 

After that, head over to Cath's Cookery Creations for the details on these Cookies and Cream Cupcakes. Hey, if I'm tempted, you get tempted. That's the way it works around here. 

OK now on to this week's party! What's everyone been up to. I'm waiting for the first Halloween project to appear !

Carol Thank You so much for the feature! If you only knew it's a bitter sweet gift because I would really love to keep my baby with me but he has to grow up and go to K! Guess mamma has to bite the bullet and bury my face in those amazing 2+ pound brownies!!! Again thank you and have a wonderful weekend! Hgs, Lizy

Hey Carol,
TGIF for sure! I totally agree with you on missing the days of buying back-to-school supplies! DD#1 is now a working girl (in a good way) so gets all her office supplies at work! And DD#2 is my practical one, needing only the minimum for her dorm, especially this being her third year. I smiled the other day as I saw not one, but two, Mom/College Boys shopping together at Bed, Bath & Beyond with "the list." Been there, done that. [Big sigh]
Anyway, I digress.

I'm linking up my recent project, a desk caddy, that I collaged with paint chips and vintage book pages. Yes, I actually tore out the pages from an old book. Come take a look. Thanks for hosting!
Your Blogging Pal,
