Do It Yourself Day

Did I ever tell you about my personal resolve to never make myself responsible for keeping a schedule? Contrary to myself, I’ve gone and joined Domenica and Denise from DIY Crush as one of the permanent co-hosts. That means I post weekly, even if you don’t read it. Well, read it, ok? Every Thursday, except if I need to take a break. But, someone, somewhere will host.

And just to get us all in the mood for doing ourselves doing it ourselves, I’d like to know if there’s a DIY you want to have a tutorial for? Did you see something on Pinterest that inspires you but you don’t know where to start? Tell me in the comments and I’ll either find you a tutorial or do myself do it myself.

See ya in the comments!

A Crushing Message

As usual, every week on DIY Crush, we have a special message from Denise. Here she is to tell you about the link party. You can do it (yourself) !

Mid-summer here, mid-winter there… we just hope all of you are having a fabulous week despite the heat or the cold. Let’s see what favorites Domenica and I picked from last week. Did you see those entries? You can still check them out HERE.


Welcome our permanent co-host Marsha from Seam Of My Pants! She guest hosted week #34 and #39 already! Now she is with us 4ever! Hopefully 😉

Best of Last Week

Domenica picked this great tutorial on how to sew travel storage bags from Threading My Way. I think this is genius because they are made from pillowcases!

My favorite post from last week is this DIY on how to make reusable car air fresheners. This post is from Our Peaceful Planet. I especially love the feather shapes, the post comes with the template download as well! So neat!

Ready to party now?? We sure are! Let’s see what you bloggers have been up to lately! It’s time to show off!


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

DIY Crush Link Party Button

(or, if you’re not sure how to do that,
you can link to DIY Crush with a text link)

* This is a requirement, not an option. One of us will check.

2. Grab the link to your DIY post and head down to the bottom of this post to submit your link.

Posts that are invited to the party:

  • free craft tutorials & patterns
  • pattern reviews (can include links to the pattern for purchase)
  • decoration with small list of how you did it
  • recipes for foods that are also kids friendly (no alcoholic recipes please)
  • business/blogging tips
  • money tips for SAHM’s and WAHM’s

Posts that are not welcome to this party:

  • shops
  • giveaways
  • spam sites
  • products for sale
  • adult content

3. Spread the word, any way you like. We love party crushers!

4. If your site and post check out, we pin your link to this Pinterest board, which will bring you extra exposure!

5. Consider joining the party as a guest host. It’s not a lot of work, we promise.

6. The hosts and guest host each pick a favourite DIY to be featured the following week.

Simple, right?
