DIY Project Parade

It’s that time of the week! Time to share all things DIY!

How would you like to win $100 towards your next DIY project?  Here are the details!, owns custom made furniture, they wear custom threads, and are all about promoting the custom way of life.  Of course, we have our own angle on why custom is so much better, but we want to hear yours!  Starting now through Monday July 12th, submit your answer to the question “Why Custom?” for your chance to have your words immortalized on the “Why Custom?” section of our homepage.  Should we pick your entry and you are a subscriber, we will also link to your profile from your answer on this page.  Entries should be a concise one-sentence long reason why custom made goods are so much better than stuff that comes off an assembly line.  Be funny, be serious, be creative, just make your point clear! Here, check out our old “Why custom?” page here.  These are good, but we know you can do better!  You can submit an entry by clicking the link below and filling out the web form.  Entries will be reviewed Monday  (July 12th) , and the top 10 winners will be announced shortly thereafter.  You may submit as many entries as you’d like. Good luck to everyone!
I haven’t had the opportunity to work on my DIY projects this week but see the links below for some awesome DIY ideas and please link up your own DIY project!  
Niski has something to show off today.
Can you see what her little undies say?  How is this DIY?  We did have to cut a hole in them for her tail!

Niski is adapting so well to her new routines.  I on the other hand am taking a bit longer to adapt. Yesterday I ran to the store. As you know, she’s on bed rest.  So, I left her in her cart near the back door with a view of the yard.  When I returned, the cart was empty!  I about had a heart attack and freaked out.  Where was she?  Was she dog-napped?  Did she find a way over the high wire walls and fell?  Is she hurt?  My little Houdini weeine, wiggled her way through the wire sides (they’re pretty movable) and scooted 3 rooms away into the living room – onto the wool rug that she’s allergic to and not allowed on.  No harm done other than so much for strict bed rest that day.  She didn’t hurt herself thank goodness! Bad girl!  Now we know to put her in her crate when we leave and  that the cart is only for supervised times.
Thank you so much for your prayers, comments, love and support.  The blogging community = the sweetest friends.  It’s been an emotional and exhausting week.  Your comments, hope, reassurance and advice gave us so much comfort.  Thank you from the bottom of our hearts! 
So...that’s what I’ve been up to.  What about you?  Feel free to link up!
