Sunday Linky Party #59 + Goodies

Well, it's been a rainy week and sunshine has just started showing. I just hope the sunny weather holds up because I'd like to do some hiking without getting sucked down into mud :) Now, let's get onto this week's gallery of features!

If you don't know what washi tape is, it's essentially really cute tape from Japan that can be used for decorations AND for taping stuff. It can also be hard to find, so the resourceful Nifty Thrifty Things shows us how to make it ourselves. These are perfect for brightening up presents!

You can make your own lazy susan, like the one above (and yes, it spins!), thanks to the tutorial at Reini Days over on Washington Street. If you've ever had a large party of people over sitting around one table, you'll know how useful this thing is.

How pretty are these stamped clay butterflies? Add a whimsical touch to your vases, bowls, or anything you want by following the tutorial at Twigg Studios! You'll also want to check out her fabric peonies and map page roses tutorials, both of which are beautiful :)

Create your own masterpiece copy of this Octopus Triptych by Lord Bodner. It's seriously not as hard as it looks, and you can bet everyone will be thoroughly impressed. Head over to Revamp Homegoods to learn how!

If you need more pillows for your couch, how about one showing the latitude and longitude of your favorite city? Or where you and your favorite person met? Crafting Rebellion shows you how to get that information onto fabric and make it into a pillow.

If you're planning to have a rainbow-themed party, you'll find this great set of rainbow birthday party printables at Printabelle. Just click to find the link to both the water bottle label and the entire set to download!

Get fancy for breakfast with these tomato feta breakfast cups from Will Cook for Smiles. These look so yummy, they kind of remind me of little pepperoni pizza cups too. Hmm.. maybe I'll make both. Try her blueberry banana key lime muffins and bacon flower bouquet as well!

Another fancy breakfast food: bird in a nest tart by Lady Behind the Curtain. That's an egg baked into the center of the pastry puff! How can I get my husband to make this for me? Well, it'll probably come out better if I made it myself. Try her lemon poppy seed quick bread, too!

Eat healthy for dinner tonight (although you really should eat healthy every night) by adding this kale salad. Kale is one of the healthiest veggies and it's even healthier when it's raw. Find this recipe at Thnx Pinterest.

Get a wake up call for dessert with these mocha cupcakes with espresso buttercream frosting. This is probably a coffee lover's dream dessert! You can probably even hand them out for breakfast at work and get on everyone's good side ;) Try this at Izzy in the Kitchen and try her handmade Reese's peanut butter eggs.
