Introducing... Do Tell Tuesday! ~ Diane's Vintage Zest!

Introducing... Do Tell Tuesday!

So, I teased about some big changes that would be happening for my blog and here is the first big one...  I am going to be co-hosting a weekly link party with some amazing ladies right here on my blog, so I am ecstatic to say...

Welcome to the very first Do Tell Tuesday!

If you are not familiar with link parties, they are fun and beneficial for everyone involved!  For my readers without blogs, it is a great way to get to know other readers and their projects.  For readers with blogs, you have a chance to link up and show off some of your creative posts with other Vintage Zest readers AND all of the other readers for each of the co-host's blogs.  That's a ton of exposure!


What is the point of a link party?  You can click around to see tons of projects that interest you, and other people will do the same.  That means you will have lots of guests popping over to say hi at your blog!

Lastly, each co-host will pick our favorite link-ups from the previous party, so that means you have four times the chances to be featured!  Featured posts will be at the top of each party post starting next week (where all this explanation is), so you get to brag about how you were featured and grab a button for your blog!  This page is where I brag!  :)

Without further ado, read the few rules we have below, grab a button, get linked up, and visit around!  If you have any questions, leave a comment or e-mail me and we'll have you partying in not time.

Have fun!

We are so excited you could join us for our very first party!  You might not know all of your hosts yet, so here are a few words so you can get to know us!

Lil' Mrs. Tori - Hi there! I'm Tori! I love sharing my latest craft or inspiration over on my blog Lil' Mrs. Tori. I am a busy mom of two little boys. When I am not chasing them around you can usually find me working on my latest project! If you get a chance drop on by!

Mabey She Made it - Hi! I'm Lisa Mabey from Mabey She Made It where I blog about DIY crafts and sewing. Creating is my way of expressing myself and staying sane (I have 2 little girls), and blogging gives me a way to interact with other creatives. I am a book-loving, chocolate-eating, British-adoring girl who just tries to make everything a little more beautiful than when I found it.

Vintage Zest - Hi!  I'm Diane from Vintage Zest, and I am happy to be joining the party from here in California!  I blog about my love of anything vintage and handmade, including sewing, baking, pretty stationery, and DIY home decor.  Also, I have a "25 Days of Handmade Gifts" series chock full of great gift ideas, promos, and giveaways right now!  I hope you stop by for my organization & DIY projects, weekly recipes, to join my beginning sewing group "Stitch Once Rip Twice," and to meet my travel mascot Little Miss!  Here are a few of my fave posts!

1. The Easiest Thumbprint Cookies Ever, 2. Sunglasses Case Tutorial & Pattern, 3. Refashioned Pink Portrait Blouse
4. Travel Tip #1: Get a Travel Mascot!, 5. Mini Mason Jar Tumblers with Chalkboard Labels, 6. DIY Belt Organization

A Sweet Fragrance - Hi! I'm Alicia and my family and I are American-born but live as expats over in SE Asia. I blog about our life overseas, recipes I attempt to make while substituting lots of ingredients, projects I do around the house, "tot school" lessons I teach to my toddler, and lessons I learn through parenting and walking with the Lord. I hope you'll stop by for a visit!

We have a brand spankin' new button for this party courtesy of Tori!  Be sure to grab it and put it somewhere on your blog!

Features will be pinned to our new Do Tell Tuesday Features Board!  Be sure to follow!

  5. Thanks! I'm happy to be a part of it, and get to feature some talented bloggers like yourself!

  7. It's an illusion:) my blog is running on fumes this month...I've barely had a chance to sew! (But thank you for the compliment!)
