It’s Thursday Again and the Party is On!

As usual we had lots of sites to visit and some great projects and tutorials to peruse (True confession: I started to hate the word “peruse” when everybody thought it was a good idea to send out their résumés “… for your perusal.” … Ok, tangent over. Focus!)  They’re all still here for you to peruse as well: Week 44.

Domenica picked this free potholder tutorial from Radiant Home Studio. She explains how she decided on such a luminous blog name, plus she has lots of other great sewing/crafting inspiration. Go go see her and learn something fun.

I’m not sure if I fell in love with this leather dog sofa tutorial by Redo It Yourself Inspirations or the gorgeous doggie. If you know me, you probably guessed it’s the dog, and you’re probably right. But honestly, the DIY project is pretty amazing and I’d make one myself if I could be trusted with power tools — or had a dog.

Denise’s favourite post from last week is this Chippy Glam Dresser Makeover. She can barely contain her excitement over its beauty. Do you hear that, Lolly Jane? Denise loves your dresser!


Your turn! Comment below with which project was your fave.

Guest Hosts

It’s good to keep secrets — most of the time. This is one of those times when we really don’t mind if you tell everyone and their grandma’s custom kitchen sink about the party. Come back next week for a “heapin’ helpin’ of our hospitality.”

DIY bloggers, do you have a few extra minutes and a little bit of blog space to spare? We are always looking for guest hosts for the weekly party. Would you like to be a part of Party #46, starting on Thursday, August 18? Yes? Ok, please leave a comment with the link to your blog and I’ll contact you with details.


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)

  • money tips for SAHM’s and WAHM’s

Posts that are not welcome to this party:

  • shops
  • giveaways
  • spam sites
  • products for sale

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.
