Open House Wrap Up and 300 Follower Giveaway WINNER!!!


Thanks so much to everyone who attended the September Open House Link Party! There were some amazing projects and the most linked up in the three parties I've had. It was so much fun seeing what everyone has been working on and while it's always so hard to highlight any favorites, because truly I love them all, there were a couple of things that especially caught my eye! 

First, from Meg at Mega Spooky is a wonderfully creative use of coffee filters: 

And I am in love with anything and everything black and white so these pumpkins from The Closet Crafter totally caught my eye:
There were some yummy recipes linked up and you should definitely check them out (but not on an empty stomach). Given the name of my blog, it should come as no surprise that these, from Jocelyn at Inside BruCrew Life had me at hello with these "Up In The Stars" (because she used Milky Ways!) cupcakes!
Lastly, ( or else I'd end up listing all of the links all over again!) Shannon from Posh Vinyl and Designs, has me totally wanting to make one of these:

Please feel free to grab a button! ( I'm not the best button maker):

Copy and Paste Code

And now, onto the most fun part of all. The winner of the $25 Silpada Gift Certificate (thank you Cindy!) and my "Stash" prize is commenter #22:   Melissa from those northern skies 

Melissa, I'll give Cindy your email address and she'll work with you directly on the Silpada portion of the giveaway. If you'll email me your address, I'll get the rest in the mail to you! 
I hope you'll all come to next month's Open House which will be held on Friday October 15!

SO Excited! Open House Tomorrow and Giveaway Details Today!!!

I'm channeling Paula Deen..."Hey Y'all".

I'm so so excited that tomorrow is my third "Open House" link party; that I get to celebrate reaching 300 followers, and a wonderful giveaway!!! So now the details.

Open House Link Party!
  • Link up whatever you want to feature. Holiday, not holiday, home decor , cards, jewelry, decorations, apparel...if you made it, link it. No advertising or etsy stores though pretty please?
  • Recipes welcome...especially chocolate! 
  • Link to your specific post, not your general blog
  • Link party will run from Friday to Sunday with giveaway winner selected on Monday
In order to keep the selection of the giveaway winner simple using, you MUST leave  a comment.  You don't have to link up anything, but you MUST leave a comment. Even if you link up you (say it with me ) MUST leave a comment.  Additional entries if:
  • You are a follower of The Answer Is Chocolate (leave comment saying so)
  • You blog / tweet / facebook about the link party and giveaway ( leave one comment for each thing you do)
Now on to the good stuff!!! The giveaway will consist of two fun things! My friend Cindy, whom I have known since our kids started first grade together (and now they're HS Seniors yikes!), is an Independent Rep for Silpada Sterling Silver Jewelry and has kindly offered as a giveaway a $25 gift certificate!!! If you are not familiar with Silpada , their jewelry is gorgeous and I love that they provide entrepreneurial opportunities for women!  Look at some of their gorgeous stuff!
You can browse through their current catalog at Cindy's site here

But wait, that's not all! I've been so delighted with the wonderful feedback you've given me on my Stashbusting projects, so I thought it might be fun to share a few things from the closet of magical mystery! So in addition to getting to shop for some jewelry, the winner will also receive some "stash"!

This collection includes the owl and raven images ( from The Graphics Fairy) printed on clear label paper; a sheet of the vinyl I used on my upcycled cabinet door; a package of Magenta peel offs; a paper mache star like the one from my Witch Wand,  and other misc embellishments.

Thanks again for making this one of the most fun experiences I've had, ever! See you tomorrow!
