BFF Open House Link Party

 


Happy Friday Eve all ! Welcome back to another party here at The Answer Is Chocolate. Hope everyone's made it through the week uneventfully. Uneventful is my goal these days. I'm not sure if Mr. Chocolate is ready to call for a Halloween intervention yet or not. I haven't started decorating but I have been busy making stuff to decorate with once I start. I'm so happy about how this Witch Hat Wreath turned out! 

 
I think I've solved the issue I was having with last week's embedded link party so we will see! Let's take a look at some of the fabulous ideas from last week's party.  

As my son grew older, my Halloween decor got more gothic, elegant, and darker. Anita from Unique Creations from Anita shared this Halloween Goblet that I adore! It's just perfect! 



I love a good "green craft" that repurposes things that you have on hand. I have a fun one coming up next week! Naush from Doodlebuddies shared one that is easy and fun: DIY Pumpkins using scrap cardboard, twigs, twine and ribbon. I'll bet every one of us has the supplies! 



Priyam from Simple Joys shared this beautiful Fall wreath made from ... Paint Sample Cards! I love how it captures all the stages of leaves that change colors. 


Finally, this week's chocolate feature is from Lou Lou Girls and they are as cute as they look delicious. Who can resist Keebler cookies? I know so many of us bake but sometimes you just need a package of cookies from the store and to use them on top of cupcakes? Perfect! 

Hope you enjoyed these features! Now, let's see what you've been up to this week!

Happy Friday Eve all. Hope you've had a good week. We continue to spike in COVID cases here so I guess I'll be making a few more masks since we continue to not go out very much. Frustrating to say the least how few people continue to take this seriously. Anyway, let's take a look at some ideas shared last week!


Let's start with this very chic and easy pillow shared by Lisa from Fresh Vintage by LisaS using a Kitchen Towel she bought online! 


Since we're all spending more time at home these days, this colorful patio makeover idea from Hannah at Handmade Weekly caught my eye. 


With Father's Day coming up, Lou Lou Girls has a great roundup of ideas for Father's Day, some traditional and non-traditional !

Finally, and wouldn't this make a fun Father's Day dessert, Cindy's On Line Recipe Box shared this :


Giant Fudge Chocolate Brownie Donut Cake! Yes please! 


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

It's April already. The world is a hot mess. Thank goodness for crafting! So grateful that my bug from last week turned out not to be "it". Thank you for all the well wishes!

It's so overwhelming reading / watching the news. I hope you are all well and safely social distancing. 



Loving these earrings from My Bijou Life ( and there's a pretty necklace to go with!). Perfect for Spring. 

Many people have been making their own disinfectant for reasons other than the virus that is trying to take over the world. Now , more than ever ( especially if stores are completely wiped out) here's one way to use natural ingredients. From The Organized Dream


This could be a fun project to do alone or if you have kiddos home from school. I saw a similar one of these wood bunnies on my last physical trip to Michaels a few weeks ago (BTW I did their Curbside Pickup last week and it was easy and great and my order was perfect ) or pin for next year. From Artsy VaVa


Finally, if you're missing your favorite donut shop or just need a new snack w/ everyone at home, check out these Cinnamon Sugar Donuts from Lou Lou Girls. YUM! 

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

Keep calm and wash your hands

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!

Happy Friday Eve all! Hope everyone's had a great week. Been fighting off something so have not exactly been too creative, not to mention a new puppy who would gladly eat all my supplies if given the chance. Hope everyone who's celebrating Father's Day this weekend has a wonderful one.  

Let's take a look at some ideas shared at last week's party! 


Llamas are everywhere right now and I absolutely LOVE this pillow shared by Kippi At Home. We've had to hide most of the throw pillows from the pup so I'm pinning this idea for later!


How cute (and practical) is this Potted Succulent Coffee Scrub from Soap Deli News? These would make fun gifts! 


I bet any Dad would be thrilled to have this Strawberry Chocolate Cheesecake shared by Lou Lou Girls

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

Well this week has flown by. I hope all the Moms had a wonderful Mother's Day! Jumping right into some features from last week's party!


I have always had a thing for Boxwood Wreaths but I don't have a thing for their prices. Or, I do have a thing for their prices which is they're SO EXPENSIVE. So here's a great one from The Organized Dream that won't break the bank! 

Keeping with the green ideas, how about these Terrariums fro Fresh Vintage by LisaS?  It's such nice way to bring the outside in. 


I've seen this quote a few times and I really like it. I LOVE what Chas from Chas's Crazy Creations did with the supplies she found at Dollar Tree. 


What's better than Oreos or cake except putting them together?! Check out this recipe from Lou Lou Girls. Yum! 

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

The Answer Is Chocolate

Hi all and Happy Friday Eve! Hope everyone's had a fantastic week. Let's see some features from last week's party!


Artsy VaVa shared another of her fabulous transformations. She was lucky enough to be gifted a milk can and look at the table she made with it! I am in love with the stenciling. 



I'm also in love with this pallet project from Lolly Jane. How cute is it?! 


Whether to treat yourself or someone else, how about a DIY Spa Kit? Check out the details at The Beauty Dojo.


Finally, nothing beats the simple elegance of a  perfect chocolate cake. This one was shared by Lou Lou Girls. YUM!
