Sunday Linky Party #55 + Goodies

Yesterday was Saint Patrick's Day! Anyone have corned beef and lots of beer (as is the American tradition? Or at least it is around here...) Too bad it's been raining non-stop for the past four days though. Anyway, I found a saucy article on calling out the ways we celebrate the holiday, which you can check out here, if you'd like. Caution: watch out for salty language and proceed with a generous sense of humor :)

Now, onto this week's gallery of amazing projects and recipes!

If you have a bunch of yarn for some reason and don't know how to knit (kind of like me), you can still make a really cool scarf, like this easy no-knit spring cowl, by A Crafty House. It's super cute, it looks really polished, and I need something to do with my yarn!

If you used to love wearing white, but now love wearing colors, and is stuck with a closet-full of whites and off-whites, you can always dye your own clothing, like what Modern Modest Beauty did her with her orange skirt. It's a great idea to revamp your outfits without buying more clothes!

Wheat grass is a pretty awesome plant. Not only does it look nice, it also makes an extremely healthy drink. Ever over-pay to add a shot of wheat grass into your Jamba Juice smoothie? Well, now you can grow your own wheat grass, thanks to Sweetwater Style!

Chalk paint is a pretty hot commodity nowadays, with good reason, but they are pricey. If you'd like to try your hand at making your own version, head to From Gardners to Bergers for a diy chalk paint tutorial, and try three other chalkboard tutorials too!

Would you like to add a cute ruffled pillow to your living room sofa? Then check out this cute tutorial from Twigg Studios! If you make your own clothing or other sewed goods, try her diy sew-in labels tutorial too.

If you have some unwanted silk ties lying around the house that no one would ever wear again, you can use them to create the coolest, most unique Easter eggs ever! Learn how at Crafting Rebellion, and also check out her antiqued tray tutorial for the proper way to get an antique look for your home decor objects.

Make breakfast special with these smoked cheese and green onion waffles by Will Cook for Smiles. If you prefer breakfast sandwiches, why not use it to make a bacon and egg waffle breakfast sandwich as well?

Get the goodness of whole grains with this whole wheat pizza dough recipe from Aisling Beatha, along with two pizza topping ideas. A homemade pizza sauce completes this dinner!

The types of meat are very important in a barbecue, but so are the sauces! Here are three types of homemade barbecue sauces to make your meal extra tasty: plum barbecue sauce, sweet-hot barbecue sauce, and mango and pepper barbecue sauce. Try it at Lady Behind the Curtain.

Mmmm... nothing like homemade dessert, especially when it looks like store-bought candy and involves chocolate, right? Well, try this milk chocolate covered raspberry creams from Making Memories, and try her cinnamon roll waffles and St. Patrick's day marble cookies too!
