Patriotic Link Party


Hello Everyone!

Please join me in my first PATRIOTIC LINK PARTY and help get everyone inspired to create, honor and celebrate Memorial Day, Flag Day and the grand finale, The Fourth of July!

I'm sure many of you talented folks out there have created one or more patriotic decorations to embellish your homes, and I would love to see what projects your creative minds can come up with!

I've always enjoyed making patriotic decorations from anything I can get my hands on.  From my pine branch firecrackers to an Americana kitchen chair, I've decorated my home and garden for these holidays with those three important colors that represent my country's flag. 



This link party will be open from MAY 5 - JULY 4  in order for everyone to have enough time to design and work on their projects and have them ready for any one of these holidays that will be coming soon.  You may also enter the link party more than once as long as you have a new project, so feel free to come back and link up again!

Please don't forget to link back to my party page by including
my Patriotic Link Party button below on your blog post.

Thanks for linking up or even just stopping by!  And please don't forget to take a moment to view some of the great projects that have linked up!

GOD BLESS AMERICA!

  3. Hi Diane, I love this idea! In all my crafting I have never been much of a holiday crafter, except for Christmas. But with the new home and the insatiable need to make everything, I think this is an awesome idea to celebrate this great country. We are moving in June so I'm not sure I will be submitting much, but I would be thrilled to feature your link party. God Bless America, Lori

  11. I'm so excited to see your link up party! I have been searching high and low at every kind of sale possible for all kinds of things to decorate our upcoming lake house...we are painting furniture, planning decor, and thinking of creative ways to turn a vintage 50's cabin with an "updated" seventies look into our patriotic fourth of july retreat!

    How fun. Will be back with more updates as the holidays go by!
