It's that time again! Time to share your latest projects on DIY Day.

If you haven't heard me prattling on about it, you may not know that I'm on vacation this week. That means I don't have a project of my own to share. And if I did, it would probably be something along the lines of "How to Single-Handedly (or is it Single-Mouthedly?) Diminish the Population of Maryland Crabs". Mmmmmmm. Crabs.

And because it KILLS me to have a post without any pictures, here's a crab that I DIDN'T eat.

But let's be honest. DIY Day isn't about me. It's about you! So let's get to linkin'! Here's the rules:

  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 parenthasis after the name of your blog. For example, The Orange Nest (knitting beach towels).
  3. Link to this party from your post so everyone can get in on the fun.
  4. Visit, visit, visit and comment, comment, comment!
  5. Double-check to make sure your link works and goes to the right page so it doesn’t get deleted! If you come back and see your link is gone, re-read these rules and try again. No worries!

Now let's see those projects!!!

Hi Kimba! Thanks again for hosting this. I made an ottoman out of. . .well. . . trash! I'm pretty pleased with it; hope you like it.

Have a great week at the beach! I'm with you on the crabs. Crab meat, crab cakes, crab dip, crab bisque--you name it; I love it. Sounds like you do, too. Enjoy!

Amanda @ Serenity Now said...

Don't you eat all the crabs!! Some of us here in Virginia want some too. ;) Thank you SO much for hosting this...I get so many fun ideas, and I love linking up. :)

I've looked at about half the participants so far and am slack jawed (is that a word?) Unbelievable once again! Have a great time on your vacation.

Hope you are enjoying your vacation~poor Mr. Crab's. But it's ok as I readied the situation by eating all the shrimp in Florida last week. :)

Nissa said...

Hey Kimba! I'm linking up an old post b/c my current DIY projects are still a work in progress. I added a button to DIY Day on my sidebar since I couldn't include it in the old post. Have a fun vay-cay!

Nardeeisms said...

Got that same crab from a souvenier shop in the Outer Banks. Wind him up and he crawls sideways? Over and over again? Underfoot? Sorry to say, that my son has been looking for him, but unfortunately he's, ummm, sorta missing now. ~Nards ;-)
