And she has a tutorial showing how she made it! In another great tutorial, Suzy, from Suzy’s Artsy Craftsy Sitcom shared her doodling ( this is not what my doodling looks like AT ALL) :
on this no longer plain wooden frame. More signs of Spring from Theresa at All Is Well, who showed how to make use of a frame when the glass breaks:

This Week At The Answer Is Chocolate

Hi Chocoholics! Welcome to those new followers who have recently joined the chocolate infused frenzy.

Here are a couple of things that are coming up this week at the chocolate factory.

First up, a review which will end in a fun surprise! Being a blingy kinda gal, I was THRILLED when the folks at Chunky Bling gave me the opportunity to review one of their gorgeous Swarovski crystal and pearl rings! Ooooh sparkly! Since I wear so much black, I chose this one:
Swarovski Pearl Rings
Chunky Bling Logo
It’s called Mystic Black and is made of Swarovski pearls and crystal rondelles.

If you’re not familiar with Chunky Bling, they offer fun fashionable jewelry at a super affordable price. I love my “fine” jewelry but I also love to combine it with current fashion trends and this is a great way to do it.

Although they provided me with a ring to review, I went through the order process just as you would if you were ordering something and it was easy and fast, just like delivery of my ring! You can also build your own watch (or necklace) . Needless to say, my fave is:
Beaded Watches
OK so now for the fun fun fun part! Chunky Bling is giving a follower of The Answer Is Chocolate a chance to win your own ring! You’ll get to choose from:
Swarovski Pearl Rings
Swarovski Crystal Rings
Which brings me to the next happening at  The Answer Is Chocolate this week…the March Open House Link Party on Friday 3/18!

Come by on Friday and link up your current projects. Cards, scrap layouts, mixed media, home dec, DIY, makeovers, recipes, etc. and you will be eligible to win! (US and Canada only).  Can’t wait to see you there!
