“Best DIY Projects of December” Linky Party



Welcome to the “Best DIY Projects of December” Linky Party!!!



While you all were all busy putting up beautiful Christmas decorations, making delicious Christmas treats, and making cute little Christmas crafts, our family was knee deep in our kitchen renovation.

I was so jealous that I wasn’t able to decorate my house for Christmas (until a few days before Christmas), and I plan on never doing another major home renovation during the holiday season.

That being said, I am so glad we got it completed!  And we are enjoying our new kitchen soooo much.kitchen 015 (2)

Plus, it made me focus more on the true meaning of Christmas.  Our Christmas was just as special as any other year, even without the Christmas fanfare. 

We had everything we needed for Christmas…the love of Christ and the love of our family and friends. 


Since I was so preoccupied with our kitchen, I missed out on a lot of the beautiful Christmas projects floating around blogland.

I would sure love it if you would link them up here, so I can finally check them out!



Here is a reminder of the party guidelines:

  • Your project MUST be about DIY home decor or home improvement.
  • Only ONE project per blogger, please.
  • Your project needs to be from the month of December, 2011.
  • Please enjoy visiting other great projects by other bloggers and leave some comment love. 
  • Please link back to the party somewhere in your post.  (Only those with a link back to the party will be considered to be featured on my blog.)

    Let me see your best!
