BFF Open House Link Party


Happy Friday Eve all! Hope everyone's survived the week. Getting used to my first monsoon season here in the desert. We've been here for a few but nothing like this! Been distracted the past couple of weeks and looking forward to soon being settled in new digs. Here are some features from last week's party!


Artsy Va Va was back with another amazing makeover! Check out this gorgeous Record Cabinet Makeover! 


I have seen these stands at antique and vintage stores and they've been overpriced. I just discovered that they sell a version of them at Harbor Freight Tools so with a little spray paint, I can antique my own and have a cool tiered stand like this one from Penny's Vintage Home ! She found hers for 75% off at Hobby Lobby. 


There's nothing quite like German Glass Glitter but it can get pricey. Eco Friendly Saver has a great way to make your own using broken glass ornaments!


Finally, nothing says Summer like S'Mores but how about as ice cream? Better yet, No Churn Ice Cream from All That's Jas

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

BFF Open House Link Party


Happy Friday Eve all. Welcome to another party here at The Answer Is Chocolate. 

Happy to say we have found a place of our own here in Arizona and looking forward to having my own creative space once again in the not too distant future. Not only that but it is a blank slate that I will be able to play with and probably have more ideas in my head than I'll have time for! 

Let's see some ideas from last week's party!


Let's start with these fab yard sale finds, made over into these gorgeous chairs from Artsy Va Va.  The combination of chalk paint and image transfers is a winning combination!


Next up is also a chair makeover just not the way you'd think. Lisa from Fresh Vintage By Lisa S found a curbside freecycle chair that wasn't usable as a chair. Being resourceful, she broke it down and used the salvageable parts to make TWO great projects, the first one the business card holder shown above.


She used another piece to make this background for a bud vase holder. And she has pieces left over for more ideas!


With 4th of July approaching, these Patriotic Swirl cookies from Family Cookie Recipes would be a wonderful addition to any picnic basket or dessert table.

BFF Open House Link Party


Let's just say my week has been "how is it Thus already?" . Hope your week has been less hectic. 

Some features from last week's party!


I love hats. I don't wear them often and truth be told, I probably decorate with them more than I actually wear them. I am loving this "Mad Hatter Tea Party" hat from Artsy Va Va which would be so much fun for so many Spring events. 


Speaking of Spring, how about this beautiful embroidery hoop wreath from Our Hopeful Home? Gorgeous!


With Easter and Spring just around the corner, it's prime time for bunnies! Love this fun wire pendant from Howling At The Moon


Finally, how cute is this Toy Chest dresser makeover from Repurpose and Upcycle complete with the colorful side painted drawers and chalkboard vinyl sides? I think I could use something for my grownup toys aka craft supplies! 

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

BFF Open House Link Party


Hi all and welcome to another party here at The Answer Is Chocolate. I don't know about you all but having a creative space is a welcome distraction from the world. 

Let's see some of the ideas shared at last week's party. These just all worked together!


I love using book pages in projects including printing images on them. Lindasy from Simply September shared not only a great tutorial on how to print on book pages, but she also includes how to turn photos into sketches. 


I love the vintagey goodness of this simple but impactful idea from Dara at Not In Jersey combining burlap and old keys into a piece of wall art. Love those keys!!


Speaking of keys , Artsy Va Va is back with another wonderful paint technique for this Key or Necklace holder.  I love the layered look with the smaller wood panel in the center. 


Finally, I had to look twice ( or three times) at these Buffalo Plaid Jars because at first I thought they were fabric covered but it's paint! From Fresh Vintage By LisaS.

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