BFF Open House



NOTE: Hi all, I'm having some issues w/ the Inlinkz code formatting 

Welcome back all! Hope you've had a wonderful week. Between the ongoing pandemic, the wild fires in the West and the tropical storms/ hurricanes in the South, I hope this is a space to take a break from the news and look at some pretty things. To all those in affected areas, my thoughts for your safety. 

Here are some of the things that caught my eye from last week's party and as always, thank you for sharing your creations here at The Answer Is Chocolate. 

This week I shared some Mackenzie Childs inspired pumpkins and Paint Poured Halloween Canvases



First up, some gorgeous Upcycles from The House on Silverado. I love how paint can transform the whole look and feel of a piece! 




Virginia from Artsy Va Va is back with another amazing paint project. LOVE the colors she chose for this Wood Barn Quilt. 



How much fun are these Spooky Tree Halloween Vans and perfect for now through October from Love My Little Cottage?! 


Finally, even though the temperature remains above 100 degrees here in the desert. the calendar says it's time for Fall treats. 3 Winks Design has got you covered with these gorgeous and yummy Hot Chocolate Bombs! 

Now let's see what everyone's been up to this week!

BFF Open House


Happy Friday Eve all. Hope all of my US Chocoholic Peeps had a wonderful Thanksgiving. I really love having a day that's not about presents etc. but just to be with family and/or friends and be thankful for the good things in our lives. Life is so short! 

And YIKES! Christmas is 20 days from today ( I won't be ready!) and Hanukkah only 17 days away. Here are some ideas from last week's party to make or pin!


While presents might have to wait until the 25th, these can be made and put up now and year after year. DIY Wood Plank Presents from DIY Vibes.  Perfect for indoors or out. 


Much to Mr. Chocolate's chagrin, I love glitter. If you cut me, I will bleed some combo of chocolate and glitter! These Glitter Tags from White House Crafts would make any present pop! Plus, Antonella has some other really cute glitter ideas on her sidebar. 


I am also "mad for Buffalo Plaid"  and it's everywhere! When we were at Disneyland a few weeks ago, they had so many cute things. 3 Winks Design has us covered with all kinds of ideas including how to paint it which is something that's always been a challenge for me!


It's a stocking. It's a wreath. It's a stocking wreath! Whatever you call it, call it so festive and pretty. From Love My Little Cottage

Now let's see what you've been up to this week!

BFF Open House

Happy Friday Eve all and as we get ready to celebrate Halloween, I'm good and scared. You know why? Because Christmas is two months from tomorrow! EEEEEEEEEK!

Lots of fun Halloween ideas shared at last week's party though so before I get ahead of  myself, let's take a look at some of those. 


Once again I am in love with a Halloween Tablescape. This one in black and white from Whispers of the Heart. I'm allergic to cats but could definitely do these! 


If you don't want to do a whole tablescape, this Haunted House centerpiece from Love My Little 
Cottage is so cute! 


Check out this Howling Great Wreath from Satsoma Designs. I absolutely love it! 



3 Winks Design has some fabulous printable Halloween tags you can download . Perfect for goodie bags or your treat table. 


Finally, our furbabies love treats too. I've been wanting to make some treats for our pup and these look perfect! From (and I love the name of this blog) I Have Plans With My Dog

Now let's see what everyone's been up to this week!

BFF Open House


Happy Friday Eve all. Hope everyone's had a great week. We are winding down our Summer visit w/ PhD Man which has been great. We've loved every stage of our son's life ( yes, even the teen years!) but it's so much fun having an adult child who still loves to hang with his parents. 

OK let's see some ideas from last week's and the week prior's party! 


Summer time is blueberry time. Yes we can now get them all year round but one thing I miss about living in the PNW are all of the blueberry farms and local fruit stands.  3 Winks Design has got you covered w/ lots of blueberry recipes! 


Strawberries also scream Summer and what about this No Churn Strawberry Shortcake Ice Cream from Lou Lou Girls?! Yum!


I am super sensitive to commercial cleaners and highly fragranced anything so I'm always happy to try natural ideas like this Rosemary Cleaning Spray from Fresh Vintage by Lisa S


We just past the 5 months until Christmas mark last week and I've already spotted Christmas stuff at Michaels and JoAnn! Never too soon to start planning and these Buffalo Plaid printables from The Organized Dream are an easy way to get started!

OK let's see what everyone's been up to this week!

BFF Open House Link Party Happy 2018 !



Welcome to the first BFF Link Party of 2018! Hope everyone had a safe, happy and healthy holiday season. We enjoyed having our son home for an extended break and now everyone's back to their routine.  

Let's start the year off right with some creative inspiration! 


This is a big organizing week, and who doesn't need a calendar? Lindsay from Simply September has got you covered with a slew of downloadable, printable calendars!


This is also the time of year for goal setting whether that's blog related, general life related or for a specific project. Planners are everywhere in every style and 3 Winks Design also has some great strategies for getting started on 2018 Goal Setting. 


If you're thinking about tackling a BIG project this year like a room makeover or a house makeover, then Karianne from Thistlewood Farms has you covered because she did a TON of then in 2017 and has her top 10 to share. 

Whatever you're planning for 2018, I look forward to seeing your creativity! Let's see what everyone's been up to so far ( me...not so much!).

Happy whatever day of the week this is! It's been a whirlwind with some family stuff and work stuff and just stuff stuff! Hope everyone's had a less hectic week. 

Let's jump right into some awesome ideas shared at last week's party!


Spring is the time for eggs. Whether you are celebrating Easter or Passover or just the renewal of Spring,  egg symbolism abounds. I am in LOVE with these CEMENT ( yes I said cement) eggs from Kileen at Raven Would. Cement!And I love the nests she made for them as well. 



Speaking of nests, you how creative is this idea from Artsy VaVa? Look at that cool gumball machine! Swoon. 

How sweet is this Button Bunny from 3 Winks Design? Love the combination of buttons and colors. 

"How do you like your eggs?" .... "Covered in chocolate!" So these Vegan Peanut Butter Eggs definitely belong in my basket. From Sew Historically: 


Now, let's see what you've been up to THIS week !

Valentine's Day is coming but I am really loving that "Galentine's" is a thing. What a fun way to show your girlfriends some love and let's not leave guy pals out ...that could be "Palentine's" right?  This post from White House Crafts is perfect for Galentines with a host of great ideas! 


You could whip up a few of these DIY Agate Coasters to include. 3 Winks Design has the how-to.  I keep seeing agate accessories everywhere but they can add up fast!


My Busy Beehives shared this fabulous Scrabble Tile idea that is super easy and super cute!

OK let the countdown officially begin. Twenty-four days until Christmas and twenty-three days until the first day of Hanukkah! Rev your engines. It's crunch time people! 



Let's start with a tour shall we? Now we know why Heather from Woods of Bell Trees always impresses with elegant projects. Look at her creative space all decorated for Christmas! Gorgeous! My office decorations consist of leftover supplies on the floor lol. 


Love this decorating idea from My Busy Beehives. A Jingle Bell Monogram! 


Also loved these "Ho Ho Ho" Vinyl Lettered Pots from White House Crafts. Simple, clean, fresh! 

I've always wanted to make a Yule Log and every year I say I'm going to try and every year.... Well this may finally be that year with this idea from 3Winks Design! How about a platter of these? Genius idea. 


Now, on to this week's party:

HOW is it the last week of October ? HOW is it Halloween weekend? Inquiring minds want to know. Back with features this week including ...wait for it...a Christmas feature. It's coming. 

But first Halloween. 


How about this giant wood DIY skeleton from Bliss on a Budget? Isn't it amazing? 


The Queen of transformation, Artsy VaVa is at it again. You won't believe how this chest looked before she got done with it. Suffice it to say, it was saaaaaaaaaaad. 


Love this vintage shadow box frame idea from 3 Winks Design. Lots of possibilities not just for Christmas but for any keepsake treasures. 


But back to Halloween. How about these Black Forest Brownie Cheesecake Trifles for a "spooktacular" dessert? YUM! Check out Tinselbox for the details. 

OK now on to this week's party!
