Welcome and thanks for stopping by. I'm Carol, the blogger behind "The Answer Is Chocolate". I'm a long time crafter, cardmaker, scrapbooker, sometimes DIYer, jewelry maker and play around with mixed media. I've recently added quilling to my list of things I love to do. I'm also a lifelong chocoholic and live off of iced mochas so I decided to combine all those passions in one place.
I recently retired from a 33 year career in corporate America and for now I'm focused full time on creating and blogging. If I'm not in my craft room or the kitchen, I'm at Michaels, JoAnn or Dollar Tree.
The Cast of Characters Here At TAIC:
Me: I refer to myself as the "Head Chocolatier" even though I have no training as a chocolate maker. I do however have LOTS of training as chocolate eater and will forego any dessert unless it's chocolate.
Mr. Chocolate: This is my husband, to whom I've been married for 29 years. He encourages me in my creative pursuits and has been known to give his $.02 on different projects. He was both terrified and thrilled when I started blogging. Terrified that I'd post pictures of him; thrilled that he didn't have to pretend to be excited that there are multiple kinds of Mod Podge, or fill in whatever other craft supply here because I probably own it. I have other people to talk to who get just as excited as I do when a new glitter, glue, paint, cutting machine etc. comes out.
PhD Boy: This is our son. He's in his 5th year of Grad School, almost done and we appear to have done our job right because he's struck a great balance between independence and still acknowledging us in public when he comes home from school.
The Mumster: This is my mom. She's an adorable little ( like teeny tiny little) woman who along with Mr. Chocolate is my biggest source of encouragement even when she has no clue what the heck it is I'm excited about.
Hopefully you'll find something to inspire you here whether my own creations or ones that I feature made by other bloggers. My passion for chocolate is only rivaled by my addiction to paper. And beads. And scrapbooking embellishments. And washi tape. See the pattern?
