Dare to DIY (Give Handmade) Link Party

How was your week-end?  We finished up some holiday decorating.  We started Christmas shopping…which is actually really early for us. Weird. We went to see Cirque Dreams Holidaze last night.  Pretty impressive show.  I want to be a circus performer.  Nate told me that my lack of coordination and fear of heights would hold me back.  I thought spouses were supposed to be encouraging?

I also got the blog all organized for December.  In case you missed Saturday's post, there will be at least 21 straight days of blog posts in December.  Unless I flake.  Totally a possibility.

Today is the day where you get to show off your handmade gift goodness.  Who doesn’t love handmade?  I have some other handmade gifts up my sleeve but I don’t want to ruin the surprise.  Because if my friends/family are anything like me, they’ll peek. 

On Friday I shared with you a tutorial for making a Wood Bead Necklace.


My co-hosts also whipped up some pretty impressive gifts.  I fully expect one of each on my doorstep before the 25th.  Rachel may want to get started on my king size crocheted blanket…if she already hasn’t.

Now it’s your turn!

Each Monday, the link party goes live for that week's Dare to DIY challenge. You can link up as many projects as you wish, as long as the posts correspond with the theme of the week.

You can link up on any of the co-hosts blogs. The linky below will stay live through Wednesday. This Thursday, each co-host will spotlight at least 3 projects we loved from the week on their blogs. We'll also pin those projects on our shared Pinterest board!

The only rules:

1. Please follow the Dare to DIY theme of the week (this week is “give handmade”). 

2. Please link back to Dare to DIY on one of our blogs (preferably all but we understand that time is precious). (Or copy this: I’m sharing this at the Dare to DIY party hosted by Decor and the Dog, Maybe Matilda, Newly Woodwards, and Two Twenty One!)

3. Please go to at least one other blog and comment. I can make it to all 60+.  You can make it to one. I promise.

  1. Love the necklace. 21 straight days of posts??? That's seriously ambitious. I think I'm committing to 2.

  2. I applaud you and the other ladies for being so dedicated to make it to all the links. I just tried for as many as I could before work and it takes some time. Very excited to have found 3 new blogs to follow though. This Dare to DIY has been the most fun I have had on the internets thanks again for doing it.

  3. I really like that necklace! Never would have thought of it, but it is so simple and still so stylish. Plus, as the mother of little ones, it's "safe" in their little hands. (I've had a few broken necklaces!). Thanks for your comment on my lady bug quilt and for hosting the link party. I've had so much fun!

  4. I'm new to your blog! LOVE IT!

    Thanks for hosting the party :-)
