DIY Day!

Post image for DIY Day!

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

I got so lazy over the holidays. There’s not even a picture here! Horrifying. I’m totally pathetic.

But DIY Day is really all about you. You’ll provide the amazing projects and pictures in your posts. There will be spray paint and glue guns and DIY galore!

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, a craft, some new artwork…maybe a great recipe?

A couple of things to make it 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!
