Sunday Linky Party #25 + Goodies

It's a sunny Sunday this week. Unfortunately, I read on the news that the heat wave has traveled to the East Coast. I can't imagine how it would feel being in 100 degree weather PLUS humidity. Regular NY summers are hot enough already, but good thing I moved this year. I'm excited because my husband is coming back to CA today! He'll be here for a month, which means we'll be doing something fun every weekend (I hope), ha! Weekends just don't feel long enough. I'm a big advocate for the 4-day work week :)

Onto this week's featured posts!

These shea butter sugar scrub cubes don't require too many ingredients and look so good! As yummy as they look, these would be much better scrubbed on your body :) Check out Soap Deli News for the recipe.

Make games more fun with personalized dice. Not only will you get exactly what you want, you'll have the most unique-looking dice too. Not sure how balanced the dice will be, but I guess that'll be a mark of your craftsmanship :) Find the tutorial at The 36th Avenue.

I like making tote bags because they're the simplest (while also the most useful) things I have the patience to sew together in one setting (meaning I will generally only attempt things that can be done in one setting :) Here's a pretty bag by The Crafty Cpa.

We've seen these nautical headbands everywhere, and now we can make our own, thanks to Stars & Sunshine. Thanks!

If you prefer flowers over knots on your head, Me & My Boys has the perfect flower headband tutorial.

This is a pretty neat tutorial for a framed paper art. I really like how it turned out, despite The Crafty Scientist's concern over how it would look at the end. Good job!

Another amazing (but surprisingly simple) piece of paper art by A Step in the Journey. If you're feeling ambitious, you can piece together the whole atlas!

Did I feature too many projects this week? Oh well! These chalk clothespins are just a great idea. Get it at Life in the Thrifty Lane.

Mmm... I can imagine smelling these soft pretzel rolls coming straight out of the oven. Lady Behind the Curtain not only provides a recipe/tutorial, but also ideas for all the things you can use these for, like pizza, sandwiches, etc. She also has a recipe for roasted pork tenderloin.

Find out why Hungry Homebody calls this a "sinful" cherry cobbler, aside from it looking delicious, of course.

These cute little sand crab decorations add a fun touch of summer to your desserts. Learn how to make it at The Seven Year Cottage.

hi Jen! Thanks for featuring my Sinful Cherry Cobbler. I've "redeemed" myself this week by not posting a dessert for a change :D

Hope you are staying cool under this heat dome.
