Sunday Linky Party #51 + Goodies

Hi all, how's it going? I decided to try to be healthier by walking/hiking on the weekends, even for just short periods of time, so I'm feeling pretty proud of myself so far :) This week is another week of really interesting projects. I learn so much from all linked blogposts, so here are some that I think will be really helpful! Also, check out the yummy recipes :)

How cute is this teacup lamp? It's just adorable and reminds me of the tea party in Alice in Wonderland!  Learn how to make one at Twigg Studios.

These gel wax candles would make great party favors, and they look really cool too! I can imagine making a really large one with some amazing scenery or getting all personal with letters and pictures. Check it out at Craftionary and try her felt hair claw clips tutorial too.

Get rid of your wallet by combining your credit cards/money and smartphone into one item using this pouch with pockets tutorial from Daffy's Dream!

If you need some tips on spray painting furniture and adding decor, like the damask pattern above, check out Moments with the Montano's for useful tips and lessons learned. Add some personality to your wood furniture :)

Here are two tutorials that would work great when combined. The first is a photo magnets tutorial from Cope & Hope. The second is a bottlecap message magnets tutorial from Tales of the Scotts. You can make them separately or create bottlecap magnets with photos!

Do you make patterns and are considering selling them online (or already do sell them online but need some tips and advice)? Check out this really useful post from Craft Buds that'll get you started in the right direction! Thanks Craft Buds :)

Did you know that red cabbage is really good for you? Well it is, which is why this red cabbage cream soup, by Mein Kochlust, should be on your dinner table! Actually, I've read several articles about how eating veggies of all different colors is very healthy.

Now for some yummy desserts that should be eaten for special occasions, such as pull apart donuts by Lady Behind the Curtain, which are baked and not fried! Yum :) For additional sweets, check out her Valentine dessert recipes.

You've always wanted to make some marshmallows, so here's your chance to try your hand. Because these marshmallows are handmade and look more sophisticated, unlike the puffy white stuff, it's completely okay for you, as an adult, to proudly eat them ;) Check out the recipe at Adventures in Dinner.

If you're looking for a light dessert, try this orange fluff by Alderberry Hill. I've never run into these before and the recipe's simple enough, so I'll definitely give these a try!
