DIY Day and a Giveaway!

DIY Day @ ASPTL

You made it! I'm so glad you're here! I was terrified that our move to Tuesday would mean that no one would make it this week.

If you're new here, every Tuesday (used to be Thursday), 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?

This week, we have a fantastic prize from one of my sponsors, Back 40 Life. If you love vinyl wall art, you're going to love this one! One lucky winner will receive $40 to spend on anything you like at Back 40 Life.

Maybe you'll snap up one of these beautiful Oval Monograms?

I often joke that I need to have this verse tattooed on my forehead. Maybe I just need to have the vinyl decal on my wall?

A few of my other faves are the Curly Initial Monogram, the Front Door Welcome Sign and the Family Wrought Iron decal.

There are over 60 designs to choose from at Back 40 Life, so I'm guessing you won't have any problem finding something you love.

Good luck and let's get this DIY Day started! If you have something to share, then just add your link below. Here are a few guidelines to help things run smoothly.

  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!!!
