Do It Yourself Inspiration

Here we go again!

Ironing Cats

Not exactly the recommended method of pimping your ironing board.

I had the best of intentions to write up a nice little pictorial on how to pimp out your ironing board and post it so I could join the DIY Crush link party this week. I got all the pictures I could possibly need. I have all the instructions in my head, but I haven’t written anything. Feels like I’ve spent all of June herding cats — 6 of them to be exact.

Well, since I have no DIY of my own, I’m guest hosting the party. (You know like when you have nothing in your kitchen to bring to the potluck and all the good stores are closed, but it wouldn’t matter if they were open because you only have enough money for bus fare so you show up early to help the host set up and pray all the other guests won’t realize that you came empty-handed, but then you still hope the host will give you a goody bag to take home anyway even if you didn’t bring anythin’… Or maybe that was just me during college.)

Back to the present… You’re going to impress the pants offa me with your brilliant DIY projects, right? I’ll let Denise tell you all you need to know about linking your posts and pictures. I’ll be right back!

Denise, the floor is yours…

Happy summer 2016!! We hope you will have some down time and get to rest up because this party is not stopping! As expected we will see a slower party participation because many of you might enjoy the outdoors or go on trips. But hopefully you will find some time to craft as well! Let’s see what favorites Domenica and I picked from last week. Did you see the entries? If not, see last week HERE.

We pin every instructional post you are linking up to this board which will bring you extra exposure!

Please play by our rules 🙂

Domenica picked this great tutorial on how to sew a French seam from Tea and a Sewing Machine. It’s a great way of concealing raw seams on garments! Check it out!

My favorite post from last week is this American Eagle foam board DIY. This post is from Our Peaceful Planet. This pretty décor piece will for sure be a keepsake for years to come.

I better wrap this party up because I might have lost a cat or two while I was here writing. I’m going to round them up and take a headcount while you all link up. I’ll come back later to get my DIY fix from your photos and tutorials. Link away!!!
