Link it up!


Where do you get your inspiration?  Is it from Pinterest, friends, blogs, magazines, or do you just come up with things all your own while sleeping peacefully?  Maybe something was taught to you, or passed through the generations?  Well, no matter where you get your inspiration, how many times do you have to test something out before you really get the hang of it, or before it is no longer a craft fail?  I want to see all the tested out projects, recipes, tutorials, and anything else you ave gotten your hands on.  So here it is a place to showcase those tested out items!

How it works.

Link up your posts, make sure it's not the blog they come from, but the actual post! There should be a little space at the bottom left that will allow you to do this. (If I did my part correctly) Don't forget to give credit when it is due.


  1. Friend This DIY Mom's Diary in some way, follow the blog, Facebook, or Linkys!
  2. Please display the Test it Out Thursday button on your post somewhere.
  3. Visit some of the other posts that have been linked, and be kind we all love to hear (read) those comments!

Here is a little Test It Out Thursday from yours truly!
(I will be making a tutorial about it soon)
I keep finding all of the super cute pictures of little girls aprons all over the web.  I wanted one for my oldest daughter! (Babydoll) So I "tested" making one myself! It's isn't the best bit of sewmanship...but meh my sewing machine and I couldn't work out our problems.  Therapy didn't work, so I replaced it.  The new machine works a heck of a lot better now I just need to fine tune my skills :)

(Told you I need to work on my skills a bit )

Thank you!

I hope that this works out the way it is supposed to, hope you all have fun, and learn something from each other.  Come back next Thursday and see which links were some of my favorite, and see if you were featured!! 


  1. Alright I'm figuring out how to do this since it's my first link party! Started following and posting your button on my page - now once I have a post to share where do I put the link?

    1. The second post on my home page titled "Test It Out Thursday par 1" has a blue "add your link" button in the bottom left corner, it has a frog on it. Click it and it will open up and ask you to...add posts URL, name, and e-mail. Copy and paste your blog post's URL, add a name (yours,the posts, or your blogs) and then enter your e-mail (e-mail is not shared) and there you go you linked to a link party! Hope that helps!?!

  2. Thanks so much! As soon as I get it posted I'll link it there :)

  3. Thank you for joining up!!! It was feeling kind of lonely LOL! Don't worry it took me a minute to figure out how to link up my posts to other link parties at first too! Another hint is sometimes I will create something and post about it on Monday, but the link party I want to add it to isn't till Friday. So I add the link button on the day of the party, you can always go back and click the edit post button on your blog to add the link party button you want to join; to your actual post. I have also noticed a lot of link parties are open for a couple days, for example, mine opens up on Thursday but you have three days after to link to it.


Comments are like your calling card, tell me what you think!
