Best DIY Projects of March Party!

Welcome to my very first linky party!!!



I am so glad you are here. :) (My sister was afraid no one would show up!)

I’ve been wanting to have a party with you for a while, but didn’t have an idea for one that I liked.

I am too lazy to do a party every week, but once a month…I’m all over that!

And I wanted my party to showcase the BEST DIY Projects out there in blog land! So at the end of every month, let’s get together and show off our favorite projects.

You might have only finished one project during the month of March. If so, share it. Or you might be someone like Sarah, at Thrifty Decor Chick and have completed a gazillion projects during March. If so, you can pick your favorite or the one that your readers liked best. But we all can only share one. :)

And if March was not a good month for you and you have nothing to share, that’s okay too. You can still come to the party and visit other blogger’s great projects. Maybe you will have a great project to share at April’s party.

My best project of March was my brown burlap bed skirt I made for my master bedroom makeover. I will be linking it up to my party in case you missed it.

I like to talk a lot. Don’t you? And it sure is no fun to talk if no one is listening, don’t you agree?

So I want to encourage all of us who link up to “pinky promise” to visit 3 to 5 other blogs and leave encouraging comments. I have been guilty of linking up to parties and not visiting any other blogs at the party. That’s so not cool, I know. So lately, I haven’t been linking up to as many parties unless I have time to visit other blogs and leave comments.

The best thing about blog land is meeting other fabulous bloggers! And I have learned, the more people I visit…the more they visit me! So go out there and leave some comments, okay?! :)

I am using a new linky system. Your link will show a picture of your project. How cool is that?!

Click on the blue button that says, “Enter a link.”

You will want to enter the permalink to your post in the box that says “URL”. (Be sure it is the link to your specific post, not your blog address or I will have to delete it, and I don’t want to do that.)

Where it says, “Name”, enter the name of your project. You can add your blog name if you want, but you don’t have to.

Fill in your email address, click enter, and then it will take you to a screen that shows you all the pictures in your post. Select the picture you want to appear in your link, and you are finished!

I can’t wait to see all of your great projects! I will get around to as many of your blogs as I can. :)

Please be sure to go back and edit your post and add a link to my party, I would definitely appreciate it.

  11. Traci, turns out his is a fun party and there are some really great projects here. Thank you for hosting this. I'll keep my eyes open next month for the one I want to post. This is the first craft party I've ever linked to. I was a little shy about it, I don't know why. So I'm stepping out of my comfort zone a bit, thanks.

  26. I joined the party with a project I did in February (hope I won't get kicked out ;) I was away for half of March and injured for the rest - no time for new projects! I love the new linky thing!

  28. Great idea for a party, Traci. And I like seeing the little thumbnails but I thought I should mention that on my monitor I only see 4 rows of complete thumbnails and then just a tiny sliver of the photos in the far right column. If the 5th, 10th, 15th etc., person to link up doesn't get many visitors, maybe others can't see their thumbnails either.

  29. Traci, thank you for hosting! I've been looking forward to your Linky Party. Love this new style of Links with the pictures! Looking foward to linking up each month.

  31. Tracy, it looks like were missing the far right side of the entries! I just noticed that you can see numbers and words peeking out, but you can't see their links or photos!

  32. Hey, Traci! Great turnout at your party. I've linked up a post from last week on my salon wall. I like this new linky with the pics!

  34. I LOVE the look of this linky! Can't link anything this month because the only project I managed was purchasing a house. So looking forward to next month!

  35. I love the thumbnails, it really appeals to my "skimming" mentality. I found some great ideas and some great new blogs I hadn't seen before! I had a great time, thanks for having me!

  37. Traci:

    This linky is so much fun! It is so neat to see a snapshot view, saves time, gives us an idea of the project, and just makes for a special way to view others projects.

    Good going!
