Welcome to DIY Day! Are you ready to share your latest project?

If you’re new here, every Tuesday we get together to share our newest DIY projects. I’m really flexible about what constitutes a DIY project. A furniture makeover, an outdoor project, an indoor project, some new artwork…heck, even a great recipe could qualify as DIY, right?

Today’s DIY Day prize comes from my friend, Whitney, at Whitney Caroline Designs. You know how much I adore supporting real women running their real businesses. Well, Whitney Caroline Designs is the real deal.

damask duffleHer online shop is stuffed full of adorable personalized goodness. My head is spinning with Christmas ideas. Who wouldn’t love this Quilted Damask Duffel Bag. It comes in black too and I think it’s a STEAL at $28 (before embroidery).

monogrammed umbrellasAnd would someone in my family PLEASE put a Monogrammed Umbrella in my stocking? I’m all about the lime green.

baby sleeper One lucky winner will receive $40 to spend at Whitney Caroline Designs! Maybe you know a baby who NEEDS a Monogrammed Baby Sleeper? How adorable!

All you have to do is a link up a post to DIY Day this week and you could win!

Just a couple of guidelines to help things run smoothly.

  1. Link to your specific post, not the main page of your blog. I HATE having to delete these. It makes me feel like a big meanie.
  2. Include a short description of your DIY project in parenthesis after the name of your blog. This helps people browse the HUGE number of projects. And you get MORE clicks!
  3. Link to this party from your post so everyone can get in on the fun.

Now let’s see those projects!

Thanks for hosting, Kimba. πŸ™‚ I had a hard time getting the site to load tonight, but maybe it was b/c of the insane amount of traffic you get??

Thanks again for hosting the party. I was so full of adrenaline while doing my McLink I just entered the name of my project (PB Knockoff wreath)…not my blog name. Oops. Need faster fingers next time :).

Hi Kimba:
I am brand new at this, but hopefully better late than never! I’m on dial-up and it took me forever to get my blog post written because the photos take so long. Hopefully some people will check it out! Thanks for hosting…

I love your party each week. I like the way you ask people to include a description. Some of the other parties, girls only put their blog names, and I find myself not clicking as many.
