10th edition of TIME FOR A PARTY + Featured Creative DIY Ideas

Before you’ll link up your party idea this week, have a look at some of the best entries in the prior two parties. Because we are covering 2 weeks’ worth of entries, I’m featuring 9, instead of the usual 5.


Top 9 Features

Easter Ideas & DIY, Creative Pursuits of All Kind

All seem to be saying ‘Spring’. Love each and every one featured here.

Featured Creative DIY Ideas


diy chair upholstery

DIY Chair Reupholstery | aka complete chair makeover | by Days of Chalk & Chocolate

This chair upholstery project is so inspirational to me. Honestly, go see the ‘before’ photo, and you know why. There are handy DIY instructions to make this do-able for you and I too. Ahum. For you.



Crochet & Fimo Clay Necklace by Lelo Juweeltjes

Lelo’s blog is one of my new favorites.
Her style is ‘right-on’: contemporary but casual; whimsical but practical.

Last week she shared a wonderful crochet bag (complete with a howto)  and now she’s showcasing her latest necklace. Truly a ‘juweeltje’ which means ‘a darling piece of jewelry’ in Dutch.  Go check out both at her blog.



White Wooden Wreath Wall-art by Little Miss Maggie

Little Miss Maggie is actually rather Maxi. In style that is. Here she features how she spruces up two abominable cabinet doors in romantic artwork.  Another real inspirational blog, with tips and sources.



Piano Bench Re-upholstery by Bleak 2 Unique

The best of this bench is actually on the inside! It is lined / decoupage with sheet music for lovely songs.   Painted white, this bench will fit anywhere in the home.



Fun Crochet Baskets by Donata’s Crafts

Donata loves crochet and you can tell! These adorable baskets are not the only crochet home decoration she’s treating us to at her blog. If you want to learn more, go visit. You won’t be disappointed.



Doily Stamped Butterfly Vases by Twiggs Studios

I first came across this technique through a friend back in my California days. She had made plates using this doily pressing technique.Actually, some had not turned out ‘perfectly’ and those were my favorites. I had one of her plates for years, until we moved…

Twiggs Studios is great website on how to make a whole bunch of contemporary home decorating items, these cool butterfly vases just being one of them.



Bunny Silhouette by Fit, Crafty, Stylish an Happy

This Easter bunny makes me happy. Easy craft cutout, instant Easter decoration.

Crochet Granny Square Blanket by Phil’s Wife

What is particularly good about this granny square blanket is that you truly do not need to drag your pattern book along with you take this project on the road. You just begin and cast off when it’s the desired size. Looks good, nay?!


Easter egg wreaths
Easter Egg wreaths

Easter Egg Wreath by Messy Roost

Just when you think, oh these plastic eggs are just  a bit too bright and too plastic-y, the Messy Roost shows us how to put them together into a whimsical wreath that makes just the perfect Easter decoration.


OK. These are just 9 of those great party guests. DO VISIT THE SITES OF OTHER GUESTS. I CAN’T STRESS THIS ENOUGH. This is where we all learn new DIY  tips and pick up great decorating ideas.  And, leave a comment while you are at it.  To give everyone an extra chance to visit prior entries and to be visited by others, I will continue to show last week’s entries for one whole extra week.
