Sunday Linky Party #29 + Goodies

Here's to another happy Sunday! :) Hope you're all having a good weekend (although that's not always possible). But we try to make the best of everything because that's what we crafty people are good at, right? Check out this week's gallery of great projects and recipes!

This is a tutorial for all of the above! Yep, pretty cool huh? I love how cute and useful these vintage-inspired boxes look. Learn how to make some yourself at The 36th Avenue.

If you have kids, this will be so awesome! :) Keep it safe and relatively clean by making your own play dough using very few ingredients. Check it out at Running with Glitter.

If you're feeling particularly ambitious, why not build your children a play kitchen? C'mon, you can do it! I mean, Jellyfish Jelly did :) It can't be that hard, right?

This is for a DIY eye chart in which you can have it say any message you want! It's a pretty cool wall art tool that From Gardners to Bergers has discovered and is sharing with us. Also check out her old-timey, vintage-looking subway art project.

Do you see how gorgeous this painted dresser is? It looks like it could have come out of Anthropologie or some other unique home decor store. I Can't Stop Crafting gives you the step-by-step instructions for how to get your little crafty hands started on something like this.

Make this tres trendy painted chain necklace to brighten up your next outfit. It's Mason's Roost's way of getting the sold-out necklace she wanted, and it's a great idea!

More goodies:

Make cooking a little easier by infusing your salt and sugar with lavender. These would make amazing gifts as well and you have so much more control over its flavor than buying them from a store. Find it at Nifty Thrifty Things.

How yummy does this "jook," or rice porridge, look? Thanks to The Silly Pearl for posting a recipe! I also enjoy eating these but try to avoid the possibly msg-laden ones from the restaurants.

Wow, does that fruit and walnut pork loin look perfectly cooked or what? I can never get pork right, it always comes out too dry and hard. Good thing the Lady Behind the Curtain is proof that a regular person can make good pork too (unless she's actually a professional, in which case my hopes will decrease a little). Check out her caramel-nut bars too!

Make these gingersnap lemon layer desserts for your next party and I will be the first guest to arrive :) Learn how to make it at Pressed Down, Shaken Together.

Get cheesecake on-the-go with these chocolate cheesecake bars! Not that you should eat and walk at the same time, just saying. Make these yummy bars from Jam Hands, as well as some cheesy garlic sticks.
