DIY Day and a Giveaway!

DIY Day @ ASPTL

Welcome to DIY Day on ASPTL! I can't wait to see the projects that you have to share this week. Don't forget! Next week, DIY Day will move to Tuesday which means the post will go up at 10pm on Monday night!

This week we have a fantastic prize from RHB Designs. One lucky winner will receive a $40 gift certificate to spend on anything in the shop!

Maybe you'll scoop up this beautiful Copper Dream Birdie Necklace. You could also have it personalized to include the name or word of your choice.

Or maybe you've been dying to get a mother's necklace like this Family Circle Necklace for yourself of someone you love.

RHB Designs has a huge selection of hand stamped necklaces and bracelets. Finding something won't be the problem. Narrowing it down to just one choice might be.

Good luck and let's get this DIY Day started! A couple of things to remember while you're linking.

  1. Add a permalink to your specific post, not the main page of your blog.
  2. Include a short description of your DIY project in parenthesis after the name of your blog. For example, A Soft Place to Land (painted pumpkins).
  3. Link to this party from your post so everyone can get in on the fun.

Now let's see those projects!!!
