Post image for DIY Day with Imparting Grace

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


Today we have a wonderful prize from someone who started as a blogging friend and has become a real-life friend. Richella from Imparting Grace is providing a $50 Amazon gift certificate to one lucky winner! This week’s prize is open to EVERYONE! Richella had a great idea for 2 different ways to enter:

  1. Link up a post to DIY Day OR
  2. Leave a comment for at least 5 different bloggers who link up. Then come back here and leave me a comment telling me that you did the 5 comment thing. You DON’T need to tell me where you commented. We’ll be going on the honor system for this. If you don’t have a blog, make sure I have a way to contact you if you win.

I was blessed to get to know Richella through her blog, Imparting Grace. You know how you just connect with certain people? That’s how it was with Richella (pronounced rih-shell-uh). I read a little of her store here and here and I knew she was my kind of people. Not perfect. But trying.

Richella has openly shared the trying circumstances that her family has survived over the past couple of years. But I think my favorite post came last week when she shared her feelings about not having a mountain to climb. Her honesty and openness touched my heart and made me adore her even more.


Richella is a regular participant in DIY Day. Anyone who can turn a styrofoam cooler into a beautiful ottoman gets a big “thumbs up” in my book!

I am so thrilled that I get to introduce some of you to Richella and her wonderful blog, Imparting Grace. I know you’re going to love her as much as I do.

Now let’s see those projects! Please…

  1. 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!
  2. 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.
  3. Link to this party from your post so everyone can get in on the fun.

Although, I don’t normally participate in the party, I usually visit many of the links. I’d love to be included in the giveaway so I’ll tell you who I visited and commented on. (This is fun!) … It’s the Little Things that Make a House a Home, Gray Matters, Infarrantly Creative, Mustard Seed Creations, and Moore Minutes. I visited others as well that I wasn’t able to leave a comment on due to the drop down comment form (an issue with my browser I guess).

P.S. I have been a follower of Richella’s blog for awhile. She is a fabulous woman!

Hi Kimba,
I visited Imparting Grace to see the towels, Mommy’s Words and saw the wonderful upholstered bed. Centsational Girl for the tufted headboard,iss Mustard Seed to see the lovely sheet music table, and My Big Life in a Small Town to support her first post and see the great bench transformation. Such a great party you throw!

My Monday’s Method today is helping Lisa select paint color and other assorted tid bits of advice. It is a series I am doing to give back helpful interior design advice for my readers. Come on by!

Thanks so much for hosting this. I love to see all the wonderful projects and wish I had more time to do them or view them. You do a fantastic job yourself! I hope you don’t mind that I added you to my favorites on my blog. Thanks for all you do!

What fun! This is my first time joining your DIY party and I found some great inspiration for some uncompleted projects around my house. I think I visited waaaayyy more than 5 blogs today! Thanks for doing this:-)

I’m so glad I came over here from Richella’s blog today! I’m sure i left a comment at least to 10 different posts, and I read even more! Thanks for the encouragement to check out new blogs and meet some great people! 🙂

28 carlotta January 19, 2010 at 12:54 pm

I did the five comment thing…sign me up! 🙂

29 Tonya January 19, 2010 at 1:05 pm

There are so many talented girls out there! I commented on about 20 of them….I could sit here all day, but my dirty laundry is calling!

32 darcy @ m3b January 19, 2010 at 3:55 pm

Not crafty… so nothing to link up…

Just had to say that I adore Richella.

I adore her too. She’s so open and honest. I’m so happy that you featured her!


34 Pam Fitz January 19, 2010 at 5:20 pm

Hello Again Kimba! Such a great idea to encourage everyone to visit. Leave it to Richella! So I’ve made at least a couple dozen comments thus far (not nearly done yet!). I still have no idea how you manage to visit everyone! Seems like you’d have to be Hiro Nakamura to accomplish such a task!

35 Amie January 19, 2010 at 6:37 pm

I commented at several of the sites. So many great ideas. Thanks for doing this each week.

36 Andrea January 19, 2010 at 6:46 pm

Thanks again for hosting Kimba. I LOVE the idea of encouraging our fellow bloggers, and have left (more than) 5 comments. How could you narrow it down to just five to comment on, though? There is A LOT of talent represented here!

37 Abbie January 19, 2010 at 7:25 pm

I commented on at least five wonderful projects! (My only project this week was taking down the Christmas decorations and I didn’t think that was blog-worthy!)

I love your DIY day! It makes me want to play hooky from school and craft. I have commented on way over 5 people. I know it is nice when people comment for me.

Thank you for hosting this forum. I visited almost every posting, and I am incredibly inspired. Thank you again!

40 Molly January 19, 2010 at 9:39 pm

Thanks for hosting…and thanks for making my blog follower even longer. I visited 5 sites and loved each one of them!!

41 Meg January 20, 2010 at 2:30 am

Richella is just the sweetest! I won a lamp that she did for a giveaway last year and I still really like it! It’s in my front room and as funny as it may sounds, I think of her generousity often.
.-= Meg´s last blog ..Love this. =-.

42 Kayla Russell January 20, 2010 at 9:12 am

Lots of great links! I left my comments so I’m entering to *hopefully* win!!!

43 Hayley Peterson January 20, 2010 at 10:36 am

I love DIY Day because so many people link up, there’s always an idea I can make for my own home! I commented on the blogs (which I’m always HORRIBLE at doing), so maybe I’ll win the gift card so I can buy a new faucet for my helf bath redo!

44 Mandy January 20, 2010 at 10:49 am

I’ve definitely posted on at least 5 blogs!
LOVE your party – thanks for hosting every week!

47 DanaMc January 20, 2010 at 4:13 pm

Love DIY day.
Left comments, please enter me.

48 Rochelle Lambertsen January 20, 2010 at 5:56 pm

I commented on 5, but that’s nothing new for me; your hosting brings out the best of DIYs each week. Thank you!

49 Carol H. January 20, 2010 at 8:00 pm

Well it took me a couple of days but I’ve finally accomplished the leaving 5 comments thing. (Though I lost track of how many comments I made. It was more than 5 and it was fun to do!)

50 Stephanie January 20, 2010 at 8:02 pm

Thanks for hosting and introducing us to Richella! Her writings are very inspiring. Off to check out some projects! This is always a fabulous party and each week is simply amazing-er than the last (yep – I made that word up but so fitting) =)

51 Heidi January 20, 2010 at 9:38 pm

I love DIY Day! I stopped by at least 5 blogs and left comments. I would love to win a giftcard!
