BFF Open House

 


Happy Friday Eve all and welcome to another gathering of creatives showing off what they've been up to. We're in full on Halloween and Harvest mode now with Christmas starting to make its appearance in all of our favorite stores. 



Candy Corn has become the Peeps debate of Fall. Either you love it or hate it when it comes to eating it but for decorating, it screams Fall and Halloween so check out this wonderful garland from Artsy Va Va!





Fall is the perfect time for Caramel Apples and would you believe these are FAUX Caramel Apples? See Fresh Vintage by Lisa S for the details! 


More fun ways to decorate with faux fruit can be seen at Master Pieces of My Life with Ways to Decorate with Pears! 


This is such a fun idea for a Fall party "Donut Be Tricked" from Satsuma Designs!

Thanks to everyone who linked up and let's see what you've been up to this week!

Happy SEPTEMBER everyone! Can you believe it? I can't. Three weeks post surgery today and not gonna lie...taking longer than I hoped to get back to full speed. I have to remember that while I'm young at heart, that heart is in a body a little bit older than it was when I last had surgery. Thankfully pain is pretty much gone but I get tired easily and fall asleep like a narcoleptic! Tired by restless is a weird combination. 

Best possible medicine was a visit from PhD man last week who cooked and tutored Mr. Chocolate in cooking and we managed to get out of the house a couple of times although still being cautious because of Delta. 


So for now, still not really spending any time creating but itching too, especially with Halloween next month! In the meantime, let's take a look at some of the great ideas shared at last week's party! 



Fall through Christmas crafting season is my favorite time of the year. What better way to welcome September and Fall than this beautiful Wheat and Grass Wreath from Howling Liz?


Also perfect for Fall is this beautiful Beaded Fall Garland from Artsy Va Va! Beaded garlands are very popular right now. 


"Love me" some Dollar Store finds. And these reversible Fall and Halloween Pumpkins from Life as  A LEO Wife are GENIUS!! 


Finally, I have been a cheeseburger fiend since childhood and my number one favorite as a kid was going to White Castle. There was just something abut the size that made them special. Now, sliders are everywhere and The Kitchen Is My Playground has a great way to make them at home. 

Thanks to everyone who linked up and let's see what everyone's been up to this week!

Happy Friday Eve all and I hope everyone had a safe and happy Fourth of July. It was a late night for us because the illegal fireworks people were shooting off did not agree with the dog nor she with them so it was a "howler" of a night. Given the high fire danger here in the desert that was also a concern but fortunately, all is well.

I also had a chance this week to create something for my new office and because I've had interest in the coffee filter flowers I used in this Oversized Floral Wreath, I will be doing a future tutorial on how to make them so stay tuned! 

Let's take a look at some of the creative projects shared at last week's party! 


Who grew up with one of these Better Homes and Gardens Cookbooks? I know they've updated but this looks so familiar and everyone I know had one of these in their family kitchen. Lisa, from Fresh Vintage by Lisa S took one and altered it, making it fun while keeping the nostalgic feel. 


If you have a fireplace you don't actively use, Kathleen from Our Hopeful Home has a wonderful way to cover it using a beautiful Botanical Print. 


Artsy Va Va shared yet another STUNNING piece of furniture she made over. Just GORGEOUS!! 


Finally, on a hot Summer day, what's better than lemonade except this delicious looking Frosted Lemonade from the Lou Lou Girls?! 

Thank you to everyone who linked up and let's take a look at what you've been up to this week!

Hi all and hope everyone's had a great week! In advance, Happy Easter to everyone celebrating this weekend. Passover also comes to a close this weekend. 

Let's jump straight into seeing some of the ideas from last week's party. 


Unique Creations by Anita continues her Steampunk creations, the latest example of which is this Steampunk Gnome! 


Cecelia from My Thrift Store Addiction shared this beautifully simple and perfect for Spring Moss Wreath. 

Artsy Va Va shared these pretty Spring candles with a tutorial not only on how to decorate the outside, but how to make the inside! 


Finally, check out these Chocolate Bunnies from Studio 27 by Jennifer Adams. Are they though? Chocolate that is...you tell me! 

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

Happy Friday Eve all! We're only a little more than a week from Halloween, which seems like it's been far away and showed up like that. We don't get any Trick or Treaters where we live but I have been seeing SO many creative ways people are thinking of giving out treats this year and the creativity is amazing. From pulley systems to PVC pipe "chutes", it's incredible. Has anyone rigged up anything cool?  

Both for Halloween and in general, you all keep coming up with some brilliant ideas. Let's take a look at some ideas! 




I look at bottles as "cycles". Upcycle or recycle! They are fabulous simple items that can be transformed into pieces of art or home decor. Like this one from Artsy Va Va! So pretty! 


If you've ever looked at an armillary in a boutique, you know they can be P R I C E Y. Naush, from Doodlebuddies has a fabulous and much less expensive alternative using embroidery hoops. LOVE!


I know many of us have been wearing "Pandemic Chic" for a while now but when we do get to go back out and dress up, these DIY Lace Up Ballet Flats from Howling Liz would be a welcome addition to any wardrobe. 



Finally, if you're looking for a special Halloween cocktail, you need to check out this one from Jodie Fitz which reminds me it's been a few years since I last watched the movie "Beetlejuice".  And it's kid friendly and alcohol free! 

OK! Let's see what everyone's been up to this week and as always, thank you for sharing your creations here at The Answer Is Chocolate!

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!
