DIY Show Off Updates!

Oh my, Monday already? I need another day! After about a week of working on it, my Project & Tutorial page and Home Tour are updated.  Hurary!  All of the links had to be changed, photos updated (there were even other random not-mine photos showing in there – how does that happen?) and some projects missing.  But now it’s all up-to-date.  So…I’m pointing it out and sharing and I’d love for you to check out the pages.  There might be something you’ve missed!

DIY PROJECTS & TUTORIALS

  

MY HOME TOUR

I hope you have an amazing start to an awesome week!
If you’re a WordPress whiz – is there a better way for me to keep track of my personal projects on my site? I’ve considered using a gallery but haven’t found one that allows me to upload a thumbnail, description and link {except for my Pinboard} and put it in a page…but I’m a newbie so maybe it’s my unfamiliarity with things. I appreciate any tips!

 

Welcome Local Friends!

If you’ve landed here after reading our local newspaper, the Butler Eagle, welcome friends and neighbors! I am SO excited about today’s feature and hope to meet some local bloggers and friends who share our DIY passion! And if you’re a regular DIY Show Off reader, please bear with me while I welcome our new friends and introduce them to the DIY blogging community via my little space on the world wide web.

Introducing – YOU!

Okay DIY Show Offs…we’ve reached a lull in submissions, something I feared would happen. Heart breaking. I promise that once I finish some projects (see below) that I’ll be out performing some DIY Talent Scouting. In the meantime…

While we’re waiting for someone to share their creativity and inspiring blog or project, please introduce yourself and let’s hear what you’re working on!

I’ll go first.

My name is Roeshel.
I’m from Western PA.
Currently on our DIY list:
(I’ve made my list clicky to direct you to my project progress blog posts. Some sneak peeks of my future submissions!)

What about you?

We all love making new friends – say “hi” and tell us what you’re working on or what your plans are or if you’re just taking it easy (so I can be insanely jealous and live relaxation through you or maybe send you a plane ticket to enlist your DIY super powers and motivation).

And if you have a project you’d like to show off – email thediyshowoff@gmail.com. I’ve visited each follower if there’s a link (that might be you!) and I’ve seen a lot of awesome DIY projects and before/afters…don’t be shy! Show it off! The DIY Show Off is a collection of creative DIY’ers…add your project and blog link to the inspirational archives and join us!
