DIY Day and a Giveaway!

DIY Day @ ASPTL

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, we have a fantastic prize from Molly Caroline Designs. This adorable etsy shop is full of so much personalized goodness that I could hardly decide what to show you!

Polka Dot Customized Plate

There are personalized plates and placemats that my kids would flip for (make sure to look in the Seasonal section to for Thanksgiving and Christmas designs).

Personalized water bottle

And I don't know about you, but my kids are always using plastic water bottles for sports and such. The plastic ones become totally YUCK after a while. We would love a couple of nice aluminum ones.

You definitely want to go browse around Molly Caroline Designs. She has the most adorable stickers and stamps, customized kids t-shirts, and stationery items. And her seasonal designs are too cute.

One lucky winner will get $50 to spend at Molly Caroline Designs!!! Yeeehaw! That'll take care of some of your Christmas shopping, huh?

All you have to do is link up a post to DIY Day and you're entered to 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!

I'm sorry, MckLinky did it to me again, (either that or I truly do not know what I'm doing) :) I put in my link and it doesn't work. Here's where it's supposed to go:

Kimba-
I am retarded and forgot to write my name/blog name on the mclinky thing, I just put the project name. Now it won't let me redo it, is there a way to delete it and redo it? If not I guess I will leave it and they'll figure out who it is when they click!
Thanks!
