Do you DIY?

I love blogging.
It brings so many opportunities.

Opportunities to create friendships
with great bloggers and readers
who love what you love.
Opportunities to inspire and be inspired daily.
And, opportunities to practice your triple Salchow off the chair 
when you realize that you were just 
crowned a winner by the DIY Club.
I won this glam button and $250 in prizes tonight
as the DIY Club gals’ August contest pick!
Thank you, ladies!
Jenn, at Rook No. 17 won the voter’s pick with her
Congratulations, Jenn!

(Thank you so much to those of you that voted for my faux zinc nightstand 
or clothesline organization station.)
Speaking of opportunities…
every month, you have the opportunity
to enter the DIY Club contest, too.
It’s such a wonderful way to share your 
creative talents and support each other.

If you’re not a DIYer or don’t have something to share, that’s fine. 
 Just stop by and show your support.

6 sweet and talented gals work very hard
to host this unique DIY Club contest every month.
September contest starts September 2.

If you are a DIYer, just upload any project(s)
that use(s) any product from their list of sponsors
(and many cost as little as 99 cents)
for a chance to win a very cool prize package.
The August package was worth $500 beans.
It was so big in fact, that those generous gals split it in two
and crowned two winners this month.
These are a few of the sponsors so stop by the DIY Club 
to check out the rest:
Olive Rue
Gorilla Glue 
Speaking of Gorilla Glue,
the DIY Club is also hosting a separate
Gorilla Glue Party event this month
that will run Sept. 9th through Sept. 30th

The theme of the upcoming GORILLA GLUE party is:
Something OLD
Something NEW
Grab the CREW (Yeah, get the family involved)
(I’m just giving you the Cliff Notes here so head over for more information.)
Also, stop by the blogs of the six DIY Club gals 
to enter to win a Gorilla Glue gift box.
Today is the last day to enter the giveaway!
I hope you have a wonderful weekend!
I’m catching up on comments and will see you later with a new project.

    Well deserved! We hope to see a string of these wins on your blog in the future. As I said on Miss Mustard Seed, Your faux zinc bureau, her music sheet bureau and Elizabeth House’s desk with writing on the side are the most iconic items of the past few years. You will go down in DIY history. Now can you work on a copper variation of that technique for me? Can we call you Freckled Martha now? Ann
