Welcome to DIY Salvaged Junk Projects 484
Every Friday, 7 PM through Wednesday 11 PM Pacific
Hey all! I’m back!
And that means the weekend parties are back!
And I hope that means your wonderful up-cycled projects will find their way back as well! 😀
As most of you know by now, I took a month’s hiatus from blog posting while I was vacationing in Hawaii. It honestly felt like 5 minutes, so I must have needed it.
Unplugging allowed me to take the time and dig deep for my ultimate dreaming and goal setting.
I wrote a pretty personal post HERE on the outcome of my stay. I also touch on how the timeframe smoothed things out, and share what I think my biggest hurdle was that needs addressing NOW. Which I’ve already been working on since home.
If you’re one that tends to never stop and always put everything else before yourself, you’ll get this read 100% and may even help you decide on a few action steps of your own.
Should we continue the DIY parties? Let’s chat!
And now for a question… there aren’t many blog parties out yonder any longer yet this one is still going. What are your thoughts on that?
As a blogger:
What makes this linkup valuable for you? Traffic? Exposure? Community? Or none of the above?
As a reader:
Do you find the mix of projects by others interesting or do you bypass these party posts?
What do you like most about this party? And least about it?
Any suggested changes? New ideas you’d like to see?
What about a themed linkup once a month instead of everything? (ie: ladder projects)
What about having the party on my Facebook page once a month?
Remain weekly? Or what about once a month or ?
Or… don’t mess with what works and keep it all the same?
Please share your thoughts on all this in comments below.
You may also email me direct if preferred at firstname.lastname@example.org
I’ll update you on the outcome at next week’s party with some decisions.
For those of you that have been busy creating all this time (I commend you…), I hereby invite you to link up what you’ve made from the past 4 weeks!
So here’s a few of your fab highlights to pretty things up around here from the past two parties 483 and 484…
I’ve collected and created with broken barrel parts before, but not like this! Such a creative and well-themed planter, isn’t it?!
If you’re a lover of grain sacks as myself, you’ll love this project. This did not start out as burlap or canvas although it looks like it does! There’s some great hacks in this tutorial.
Just because you got two kittens (I’m jealous btw…) it doesn’t mean you have to spend a bundle for cat equipment! Love the stock lumber and twine cat scratcher, among other DIY kitten friendly projects showcased in this blog post!
What the what?! This woven denim pillow cover is EVERYTHING. I love the boho feel it gives off!
For those that have yet to pretty up those porches, take a few hints from this creative upcycled porch tour that’s all about signs! You’re talkin’ my language, Carlene.
Visit the post to see the entire porch while you drool over those burlap chair pads… NEED.
This is a story of a thrift store tote that came to be the perfect gift for those hard to buy for Dads. Add a themed stencil and applicable goods inside and you’ll have one price efficient yet valuable gift. Click to the post and see the themed idea to tuck inside… lucky Dad indeed!
What did you make this past week? Link up below!
~ Blah blah linkup rules ~
1. Upcycled, DIY home decor projects only please. Items for sale must be in tutorial form on your blog. NO FOOD NOR NEW CRAFTS please.
2. Linkups must be your own work, not another’s.
3. Only projects new to this link party please, to keep things fresh. Repeats may be deleted.
4. By linking up here, you’re cool with me featuring you on my blog, Pinterest, Twitter, FJI Facebook with a link back to you, or its own new LINK WIDGET with no additional permission required.
5. No need to link back to the party! Would love it if you pinned the first gallery picture instead. Thank-you!
