DIY-Crush Link Party, Week 42

You know, I had no idea how fast a week can go by until I started co-hosting this DIY party every Thursday. Before I can take a sip of my chilled Pinot Grigio, it’s time to choose my favourite DIY and start a new link party. Hmmm… Now that I’m thinking about it, I guess I knew this in university when assignments were due, but I musta completely repressed the memories of last-minute writing and the attendant hair loss. (Probably with some help from the fermented grapes.)
Well, here we go again! At least this time, it’s all about the paartaaaay, and I have no more hair to lose.

Let’s turn this DIY party out this week!

This Week’s Link Collection

///By linking up you are giving us permission to visit your blog, pin/share images from linked up post and link back to you///

What is a link party?

It’s like a weekly roundup of helpful posts. Link parties like this one are a place for bloggers to share links to their posts that fit the theme. And readers who are searching for information on that theme will be able to find several resources in one place.

DIY Crush opens a new “link-up” every Thursday evening and bloggers are invited to submit their posts. Incorrigible DIYers of all sorts can find new inspiration and tutorials for their next project by checking out the posts and articles.

How does this work?

For blog readers and inspiration seekers, all you have to do is check the listings above, or go to DIY Crush each week to see what’s been added. You can also visit the Pinterest Board where we save all the links. And then off you go to replicate what you see!

For Bloggers:

1. Please grab this image and install it somewhere on your site.* Link to
