The Secret is Out!

The Suspense is OVER...

The Secret is OUT...

Now let the FUN & Magic begin!

Welcome, and let me introduce you to...

The DIY Club...led by a group of 5 bloggers:

The DIY Club will host a joint Linky BLOG HOP on the 1st FRIDAY of EVERY MONTH. The 1st event will take place on MAY 7th.

And we want you to link up with your projects!

This event is VENDOR SPONSORED so you will need to use at least one of the products on the list for your project. You do not have to use all of them. You can use more than one, if you would like, but you MUST USE AT LEAST ONE OF THEM.

You MUST take a picture of your project and have the products you used in the photograph. (DO NOT include products that are not on the list.) You can do any project that you want as long as you use one of the vendor products and take a picture of your project with the products. 

You can post as many projects as you would like but you want to post your best projects if you want to win. You only need to post (each of) your projects one time. You can post your projects on any of the 5 blogs and we will all see it. It is the same linked party, so there is no need to post to each blog. 

Since it is a BLOG HOP, you can grab the code (just under the linked pictures on the left) and post it to your blog to help pass the word and have more people see your project. Grab our button too and post it on your side bar.

Each month one lucky DIY MEMBER (that would be all of you who post your projects) will win the entire gift package for that month. The Gift Package will include products from EACH of the vendors plus other special give-a-ways we have that month. If you have a product you would like to offer contact

T H E  M A Y  E V E N T 

You can post projects from May 7th - May 13th (11:59pm EST).

On Sunday morning, May 16th we will post our TOP 10 list and you can come over and vote for your favorites. The TOP 10 will be able to grab the “I’ve Been Featured by the DIY Club” button. and post it on your side bar. You can call family and friends asking them to come over and vote, you can Twitter and Facebook about it, post it on your blog...Don’t be shy!--ASK people for their vote. Voting will be from Sunday, May 16th until Thursday, May 20th.

On May 21st we will announce the CROWNED WINNER who received the most votes and announce the products for the next party. We are all looking forward to seeing all of your creative projects. The crowned winner can post this special button on his/her blog...


The vendors who have products being used in the linky contest will be participating for an entire year—some of the vendors may have a large list of products and so their products may rotate while others will have the same products every month. We hope the vendor list will continue to grow. We may be adding additional vendor products to the approved list through May 26th.

For the May event, you can use any Gorilla Glue Product, any size of DISChanger, or your choice of DecoArt products featured on page 36 (Elegant Finishes) and pages 40-43 (Textures) of their online catalog.

  1. Well, I do believe that this was worth your extended silence.

    GORILLA GLUE??? Are you kidding? Why that stuff is the left handed crafter's gold...a pantry staple in this house.

    This will be interesting!

  2. Exciting! You have my little brain going! :)

  3. What a cool event to host each month! Now I've added another project to my to-do list - just gotta figure out what that project is. :)

  4. I've been missing your posts. I hope everything is going well. Now I see you had a big plan in the works.

    This sounds like fun. Now to think of what I can do to participate.


  5. Wow, this will be fun! I'm off to the garage to come up with a new project.

  6. Sounds like this is going to be a blast. Just need to think of a project!! Hmmmmmmm!!!

  7. You know me...I'll try anything once, including clubbing. What exactly does one wear to a DIY Club anyway?
    P.S. Oh Law...what am I getting myself into?

  8. Sounds like fun. Too bad I can't participate because looking at the vendors this is going to be a US party.

  9. How fun! Now the wheels need to start turning. ;)


Life whispers...what is it saying today?
