BFF Open House Link Party



Happy New Year all! I am "I remember Y2K years old" and it's amazing to me to realize TWO decades have now gone by! Welcome to the first BFF OPEN HOUSE of 2020! Thank you to everyone who partied here throughout 2019! One of my goals for 2020 is to make more time to create. There's never enough time for that right?

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



Holidays don't take a break. I have 6 birthday cards to make for January and February and Valentine's Day are right around the corned. Check out these adorable mini gumball machines from White House Crafts


While this is a Christmas Gnome from Kippi At Home, I think it's also adorable for Valentine's Day. I have a thing for gnomes so having them out all year long is no issue for me! 


Here's another Christmas idea that can be re-purposed for Valentine's Day. Check out these Peppermint Chocolate Chip Snowball Cookies from The Kitchen Is My Playground. Package them in a cute Valentine tin or box and voila!


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

BFF Open House


Happy Friday Eve all. Hope all of my US Chocoholic Peeps had a wonderful Thanksgiving. I really love having a day that's not about presents etc. but just to be with family and/or friends and be thankful for the good things in our lives. Life is so short! 

And YIKES! Christmas is 20 days from today ( I won't be ready!) and Hanukkah only 17 days away. Here are some ideas from last week's party to make or pin!


While presents might have to wait until the 25th, these can be made and put up now and year after year. DIY Wood Plank Presents from DIY Vibes.  Perfect for indoors or out. 


Much to Mr. Chocolate's chagrin, I love glitter. If you cut me, I will bleed some combo of chocolate and glitter! These Glitter Tags from White House Crafts would make any present pop! Plus, Antonella has some other really cute glitter ideas on her sidebar. 


I am also "mad for Buffalo Plaid"  and it's everywhere! When we were at Disneyland a few weeks ago, they had so many cute things. 3 Winks Design has us covered with all kinds of ideas including how to paint it which is something that's always been a challenge for me!


It's a stocking. It's a wreath. It's a stocking wreath! Whatever you call it, call it so festive and pretty. From Love My Little Cottage

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

BFF Open House

Happy Friday Eve all! Can you believe that this time next week we'll have spent the week cooking, eating, and right about now passing out in a food coma? Some of us ( not me!) may even be out shopping. 

Had a WONDERFUL getaway to Disneyland last week. It is always magical but one of the items on my bucket list has been to see it decorated for the Holidays and it did not disappoint! It was like running away to the North Pole ( in 90 degree weather by the last day lol).  I'll share pics in a separate post next week, 

You've all been busy busy busy so here are a few more features than usual! 


If you're planning your Thanksgiving tablescape check out this colorful and beautiful Jeweled Tone one from Bird's Party




Whether you're celebrating Christmas, Hanukkah, Winter, or the "Frozen" sequel that opens on Friday, these magical snowflakes from White House Crafts would be a perfect addition to your decor! In these case they're used for a garland, but so many possibilities! 


Abbotts At Home has a great roundup of 40+ Christmas Projects that you should definitely check out


Buffalo check remains popular and we saw tons of it in the Christmas decor at Disneyland. Penny's Vintage Treasures has a beautiful fireplace vignette. 

Embroidery Hoop wreaths are so simple but pack such a punch. This one from DIY Vibes is no exception! 
I am on record as complaining that there is not enough chocolate associated with Thanksgiving. This Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Cake from Two Chicks and a Mom takes care of that problem! 

And finally, whether you're celebrating the "Frozen" sequel or just looking for a different take on hot chocolate, check out Elsa's White Hot Chocolate from Lindsay's Sweet World !



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

BFF Open House


Happy Friday Eve once again. The good news is, seems like the weeks fly by. The bad news is, so do the weekends but at least this one's a long one. Hoping everyone has a great one and those of you sending kids back to school ( or have already) enjoy some quiet time. 

It's almost Fall ( hard to tell here in the desert where it's still triple digits). Let's take a look at some Fall inspiration from last week's party!


How cute is this Embroidery Hoop Fall Wreath from Kippi At Home?! And look at the coordinating fabric pumpkins. So cute. She even has the "Welcome" SVG file for you. 



How cute are these DIY Color Blocked Tables?! Too cute that's how cute. From Abbotts At Home


If, like me,  you don't have a lot of Fall leaves, make some from paper! These colorful Accordion Leaves from Whitehouse Crafts look like a lot of fun to make and use everywhere!

OK let's see what everyone's been up to this week! Have a wonderful weekend all .

BFF Open House


Happy Friday Eve all! Well the Northwest started the week under a blanket of snow and looks like the Northeast will finish it under an even bigger one. Hope everyone and all of you in the middle are safe and warm! 

Let's see some great ideas from last week's party. If you're snowed in this weekend, might have time to work on them! 


I love this cup cozy Kileen from Raven Would shared. It was inspired by the movie "Big Hero 6" and the Beymax character. There's an ongoing battle in our house because Mr. Chocolate is of the opinion that Beymax is and should be referred to as Big Hero 6. We've agreed to disagree but I think everyone can agree how cute this is! Even my basic crochet skills can handle this! 


The expression "SWAK" for Sealed With A Kiss comes to life with these printable envelope seals that were shared by White House Crafts. How much fun are these?!


Dog lovers or friends and family of dog lovers you will want to check out these printables from My Busy Beehives.  Woof! 

Finally, if you're looking for a delicious Valentine's dessert, look no further: 


Chocolate Cupcakes with Mascarpone Frosting from Birds Party! You're welcome !

Now, on to this week's party!

Happy Friday Eve everyone. Hope the week has been KIND to you! Once again it's flown by. Some really fun ideas shared at last week's party. Let's see a few! 


Valentine's Day is coming but I am really loving that "Galentine's" is a thing. What a fun way to show your girlfriends some love and let's not leave guy pals out ...that could be "Palentine's" right?  This post from White House Crafts is perfect for Galentines with a host of great ideas! 


You could whip up a few of these DIY Agate Coasters to include. 3 Winks Design has the how-to.  I keep seeing agate accessories everywhere but they can add up fast!


My Busy Beehives shared this fabulous Scrabble Tile idea that is super easy and super cute! 


Wipe the drool off your screen. Don't these White Chocolate Raspberry Cheesecakes from Crafting In the Rain look amazing? You're welcome! 

On to this week's party!

BFF Open House Link Party


OK let the countdown officially begin. Twenty-four days until Christmas and twenty-three days until the first day of Hanukkah! Rev your engines. It's crunch time people! 



Let's start with a tour shall we? Now we know why Heather from Woods of Bell Trees always impresses with elegant projects. Look at her creative space all decorated for Christmas! Gorgeous! My office decorations consist of leftover supplies on the floor lol. 


Love this decorating idea from My Busy Beehives. A Jingle Bell Monogram! 


Also loved these "Ho Ho Ho" Vinyl Lettered Pots from White House Crafts. Simple, clean, fresh! 

I've always wanted to make a Yule Log and every year I say I'm going to try and every year.... Well this may finally be that year with this idea from 3Winks Design! How about a platter of these? Genius idea. 


Now, on to this week's party:
