DIY Project Parade and awesome DIY features

Hello, DIY friends! It’s that time of the week…time for a fresh new DIY linky party and some awesome DIY features.

If you’re wondering where I’ve been, I’m here. I’ve just been working on non-blogging priorities and doing some major cleaning. Today is the day of our “home visit” with our local Italian Greyhound Rescue. I don’t think they “inspect” your home exactly, but strangers interviewing us in our home does feel like an inspection. Besides, since the new year makes me WANT to clean and declutter, routine cleaning turned into organizing cupboards,closets, purging, 3 trash bags and a pile for donating…well, that’s where I’ve been.

No fear…DIY in the DIYShowOff home will get back on schedule this week. But with a pooch in our near future…this DIY from last week caught my eye. Dog dish chairs at the DIY Village. Awesome!

DIY Project Parade and Highlights

Helloooo!

I’m just about a day late with the Project Parade this week and I apologize. Today is my daughter’s birthday. {Happy Birthday, Bri!} Last week, I spent a lot of time cleaning (as in…full blast purging and organzing) as well as running a lot of errands.  And today, you’re not going to believe this: I cooked! Stuffed peppers upon request. And I baked. A cake. From scratch. A blue velvet birthday cake with cream cheese frosting. If you’re a long time DIY Show Off fan, you know that Mr. DIY does the cooking around here. But every once in a blue moon, I venture to the grocery store, find the kitchen and actually cook a meal {usually reserved for special occasions}.

I don’t have a problem with cooking or baking but as you can see…it threw me off schedule. Oops!

Last week’s DIY Project Parade was filled with so much DIY inspiration! Here are a few favorites:

Hoping to share some DIY this week, but in all seriousness, I’m on a cleaning streak. Home visitation for rescuing a sweet furbaby coming up and it’s as if I’m nesting. Everything must be perfect (we’re talking cleaning out closets, cupboards, etc…crazy, right?!).
