Sunday Linky Party #58 + Goodies

Happy Easter Sunday! I remember when I used to wake up to a candy-filled Easter basket on the breakfast table, with a note saying the Easter Bunny stopped by. Well, that doesn't happen anymore. I know it's not the meaning of Easter, but it sure made my mornings back then :) Anyway, hope you're all having a wonderful morning. Now onto the features!

You can have this beautiful wire ring that looks like spun gold and all you need is some copper wire. It's really really easy, as you'll see from A Rosie Sweet Home's tutorial. What a great idea!

Add this super cute pillow to the collection on your couch! See how Shabby Beach Nest did it without spending any money at all. Of course this would be a great time to dig through your old clothes and stuff for things you won't be using anymore :)

Make your day at the beach extra worthwhile by using the driftwood you collected (you did collect some, didn't you?) to make an awesome hook rack! It's quite simple if you're handy with a hammer and nails. Check it out at Twigg Studios. And check out her tutorial on how to glam up a tank top.

An amazing soap recipe from Soap Deli News! Make your own coffee soap bars with fresh herbs. Nothing like waking yourself up with a jolt of coffee and herbs, right? Making your own soap is does require some time, equipment, and patience, but the results are worth it!

If you've ever seen those felt ball acorns and other felted jewelry, animals, etc, on Etsy and wondered how they're made, Art Club Blog takes the mystery away with this funky felt balls tutorial.

Let everyone know that you're loving Spring with a big flowery headband, or get all your bridesmaids to wear these for your upcoming wedding :) It's really easy to make and it looks beautiful. Head over to The Crafty Scientist for the tutorial.

Make the ultimate breakfast with this banana and cream pancake tower, by Nifty Thrifty Things. Imagine the excitement of digging into an overabundance of pancakes, like these! I think some people dream of such moments.

Make bakery-worthy cranberry brie puffs for your family and friends and amaze them with your mad skillz ;) but we'll know the secret, which is that it's easier to make than it looks. Get this recipe at Will Cook for Smiles and try her pina colada rum cupcakes too.

Here's another sweet dessert that looks more complicated than it is to make. Surprise your buddies with these lemon cookie white chocolate truffles and up your cookery cred, with Shaken Together's recipe.

Shake up your dinner routine by throwing in some sweet potato gnocchi with browned butter and sage. Sweet potatoes are a good source of vitamin A ;) Try this at The Traveling Spoon and try her spring pea salad with bacon and the ultimate chewy chocolate chip cookies, too.
