Sunday Linky Party #82 + Goodies

Hope you're all having a great Sunday and weekend so far. Sunday Linky is back up this week! I had two cakes last week - one from work and one from home, soooo that was very satisfying :) There's nothing much going on for me this weekend, except the ongoing search for a new home. Hope you all enjoy the recipes and tutorials this weekend!

Want to smell like fall all day and get soft skin at the same time? Then pamper yourself with this fall spice sugar scrub, complete with all those flavors that make you feel all warm and cozy inside :) Just don't eat it! Get this tutorial at Soap Deli News. Try her diy mango shimmer tinted lip balm as well.

Skip the regular picture frames and sew your favorite photos onto fun embroidery hoops. You'll have to transfer your photo onto some fabric though, which is also covered in Creative Chaos' tutorial!

If you need a place to hang your keys/etc. and you have a nice picture frame by your door that you'd like to make more use of, you can follow The Thinking Closet's tutorial and make a key/sunglasses holder! Check out these other tutorials, too: easy denim skirt and bird pincushion.

For beautiful everlasting flowers, create your own ranunculus flowers from fabric and crepe paper. I love ranunculus flowers and these creations are extremely well-made! Get this tutorial from Twigg Studios, and try these too: rose embroidery eye mask, French image peg board, paper orchids, wooden height chart, fabric pin boardpoison bottles + printable, painted deer calendar printable, and paper clay pumpkin vase.

For some super creepy Halloween decor, gather all of your random pieces of scary decor, glue them together, and paint them white! Great idea from Art Club Blog! For more scary stuff, check out: macabre miniatures, odd little creatures, and the clock craft.

Now, for a really easy and good-looking Halloween craft, head to Scattered Thoughts of a Crafty Mom for these adorable jack-o-lantern luminaries!

Here's a way to Autumn-fy everything... add apples! :) Make these easy caramel apple cinnamon rolls from Shaken Together and try her apple jelly meatballs and banana berry green smoothie, too.

Serve this pumpkin trifle at your next dinner party. It sounds delicious and looks pretty nice in that clear  tableware! I need one of those. Get this recipe at Better Organized Living.

Mmmm... I want a piece of this gluten-free chocolate bite! It looks so chewy and yummy :) Find this recipe at Treat & Trick.

Make a hearty filling meal tonight with this meatball sub casserole from Dishing with Leslie! Try her other recipes: kale soup, jade red chicken, apple pie rolled burritos, and bacon wrapped lil' smokies.

Have a serving of fruit with this German plum cake with streusel from Nifty Thrifty Things! This will be a great Thanksgiving dessert if you want a little variety from the pumpkin and apple flavored foods! :)

For another take on the classic apple pie, try this pastor's wife apple crumb pie! It certain looks delicious and crumbly :) Get this at Semi Homemade Mom and also: perfect french bread pizza and crockpot teriyaki chicken sandwiches.

Hand these homemade caramels out at Halloween (to your family members and possibly coworkers, of course! :) or just eat them all by yourself, which is what I'm likely to do. Find this at High Heels and Grills. Try these, too: orange julius, chipotle chicken enchiladas, and zombie eyeballs.
