Top DIY Projects Party Coming!

Sunroom2 copy

Don’t you just loooooooove a good Before and After picture?

Last year in January, I had a super fun Top Projects for 2008 party and I shared all of my favorite DIY projects that I had managed to get done last year, complete with Before and After pics.  There were over 100 people who linked up and we had the best time clicking around blogland looking at all the fabulous projects that many of us had accomplished for the year.

So, this year, I’m doing the same thing!  Join me on Wednesday, January 6th for a Top Projects of 2009 party.  Let’s start the New Year out with some fun inspiration to get us through those dreary winter months of January and February.   There was a lot of creativity shared and it was so much to look back on the year and see what we had all accomplished.  Lots of good stuff out there!  I did more than I thought and I know I’ve got at least 10 things I can share for 2009.

Get ready for another fun party and get your ideas, pictures and posts together.  Share your Before and After pics in your post, since those are the most fun to see and let’s see what all of YOU have completed for this year.  You can choose as many projects as you’d like. I’m aiming for 10 and I do believe I have at least that many things I can highlight.

Grab the button to link back here and let’s have some fun!

The 3 winners of the disc hangers giveaway are: 


Kristen (kc youngren) and my long-time reader,

Kathy, who has finally won a giveaway. 🙂

See, only one of these winners has a blog, so the notion that only bloggers win, is just not the case, it’s all done by random drawing.   I’ve already contacted all 3 of you for your mailing addresses, so get back to me on that and you’ll get your disc hangers in the mail from Stanley.  Thanks to ALL of you for entering the giveaway.

  1. Sounds like fun, Rhoda! I’m sure I’ll get more ideas than I’ll give, but I’ll look through past posts and see if I can come up with a couple to join in with.

  2. Such a great thing to do! I’ll definitely join in!

  3. I bookmarked your 08 projects. I keep bookmarking all these sites with a zillion mr linkey’s that I need to go through. It will take me all winter.

  4. Sounds like fun, Rhoda! 🙂 Something to beat the After-the-Holidays-Blues. 🙂

  5. Thanks for this reminder, Rhoda! I know what I will contribute. I’m taking the button for my sidebar.

    I posted my Home for the Holidays a little while ago and will link it to the correct spot, after you publish. It’s big, but I had a good time putting it together.

  6. I loved that post…so much fun seeing all the amazing things other bloggers out there have accomplished. I think I only got my dining room done in 2009 (big project and some little ones) but I’m working feverishly on my sunroom right now. It’s going to be a big change from what it is now…..from reds to creamy neutrals. Finished the sideboard last night and it turned out gorgeous.

    See you soon!

  7. That before and after party was so much fun last year and I hope I can join in this year, now that I have a blog. Hugs, Cindy S.

  8. Congratulations to the winners! Looking forward to event. I hope to join in, but I am not getting much done these days with a messed up leg. I don’t even have my shopping done. 🙁

    I had wanted to be ready for your Christmas party this year, but I’m not. I’m waaaay behind because of workmen, etc. So, I will just have to look this year. Sigh. I know it will be fun.
