Sunday Linky Party #90 + Merry Christmas!

Hi all, hope you're having a good weekend! Only one more week until Christmas, so I'm sure everyone's preparing for the home stretch :) Luckily, the craft portion of this week's gallery is all Christmas ornaments (which wasn't planned, I swear!), followed by some holiday sweets which I'm sure your friends and family will enjoy. As for next weekend, I will be taking it off (holiday weekend ;) so the next Sunday Linky Party will be on Dec. 30th. So until then, please have a wonderful and safe holiday season! Take care and enjoy yourselves whether it's hectic or relaxing!

Make these easy clay ornaments using ingredients found in your home! This is a great project to do with family, especially kids. Have everyone add their personal mark to your Christmas tree :) Find this at Lemon & Lime Thyme.

Gather your clay and make this gorgeous embellished bauble, by Twigg Studios. Try her other tutorials, too: clay acorns and pinecones, Christmas in a nutshell, and fabric deer head.

Here's an easy ornament idea: paper flower ornaments, and all you are a few basic items, which makes this another fun project to do with your kids! Check it out at Scattered Thoughts of a Crafty Mom.

The great thing about buying clear glass ornaments is that there are so many things you can do with them! Head to Alderberry Hill for this snow and trees ornament tutorial. Make her glass Christmas trees, too.

Another Christmas ornament! Get out your clear glass ornament (or an old one that you dislike) and make it a snowball instead :) Find this tutorial at Make it Create and download her free washi Christmas tree printable, too.

One more ornament tutorial: this glitter Christmas ornament from Kelly's Clean Living! That should complete the decoration of your tree :)

This cranberry orange Christmas breakfast bread would make a beautiful centerpiece for all your yummy food come Christmas morning :) Get this recipe from Lady Behind the Curtain and try her gooey cinnamon rolls, too.

See the smiles on all the kids' faces when you show up with a tray of these red and white Christmas pinwheel cookies! For those who don't want to use food coloring, I wonder how well beet juice will work? Get this recipe at Bouffe e Bambini.

For Christmas cookie variety, how about these death-by-Christmas cookies, by Eliza K? Chocolate and peppermint go extremely well together, so make sure everyone saves room for these.

If you love almonds and shortcake, this is it: almond shortcake! Of course. Try this recipe from The Shoestring Contessa and don't eat the entire thing at once :)
