Today is the last day to enter!  So go!  (And then come back here.)  :)

Next, I want to thank everyone who came to my party!!!!!!


There were 120 people who showed up, and the projects that were shared were so inspiring! I loved using the new linky system that showed pictures of your projects.  It made it so much more fun to browse through.  Did you like it? 

If you missed the party and want to check out all of the BEST DIY projects of March, click on the button above and it will take you there!

My “Best DIY Projects of April” will be here on April 30th.  Mark your calendars!!!

I am still working my way through all of the entries!  At least I have a month to do it.  :)

Here are a few I wanted to share with you.  (Just click on the blog name to visit each site.)

You know my obsession with burlap, so I had to share these adorable pillows with you…

Lily’s Pad and Petals


And I was so excited when I saw these little faux mercury glass birds!  I am wanting to make some for my fireplace mantle.  She got the birds from the dollar store…super thrifty!

Cherished Treasures



I love the creativeness of Amanda at Homegrown Country Girl.  She used some wood and old metal to make this adorable table.  It turned out fabulous, and I am loving her accessories!

Check out these slipcovers!  Sooooo cute!  If you have ever thought of sewing something, you need to go visit Nouveau Stitch.

Okay, I’m sorry.  But I love burlap and burlap loves me.  I just had to share one more cute project at…

Cottage to Me


My friend, Richella, made these beautiful candles for Easter and shows you how.  It’s super easy, so go check it out.

Imparting Grace


And what’s a DIY party without a little chalkboard paint?  I love this chalkboard door and the little design on top is just stinkin’ adorable!

Hydrangea Home


Well, those are just a few of the great projects at my party.  There were so many that I might have to share some more next week! :)

I am working on a button for my next party and will get it up as soon as I can!

Thanks again for a great party!

I'm hoping that I might get something a little bigger done during April, so I'll be looking forward to your next party. . . meanwhile, my candles feel very honored to be pictured at your site.
