DIY Day and a Giveaway!


Welcome to DIY Day! Are you ready to share your latest project? I'm dying to see it!

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?

This week's prize comes to you from one of my dear sponsors, Madison Reese Designs. Her etsy shop is filled with beautiful handcrafted resin and silver pendants.

Love Bird Pendant

I bought two of her wood and resin pendants last week (The Brown Tree Pendant and the Our God Pendant) and I love them!

Rustic Cherry Branch Pendant

Her designs are so adorable and affordable, you're going to find something that you love.

Rustic Fine Silver Mini Monogram Necklace

One lucky winner will get to spend $40 at Madison Reese Designs on anything that she loves! 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. 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.
  4. 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!

I love the weekly party! Such fun!!Thanks for hosting this weekly event!

does anyone remember a post from a few weeks ago about a baby shower using "chicks" as the theme? They made favors using body/bath puffs that looked like chicks and straw hats turned over as the nests??
I've got a shower that I'm hosting and would love to see this blog again. Any help would be soooo appreciated!! Thank you Blogging World!
