Sunday Linky Party #92 + Goodies

Happy first Sunday of 2013! :) Hope you all had a fun and festive New Year's Eve/Day! My husband and I are now officially first time homeowners (we literally closed on 12/31/12) and I can finally start getting stuff ready for our soon-to-be-here baby girl! I'm due in a little less than 3 months, and we've got to move and get the kitchen remodeled before she comes. The appliances don't work and the shelves in all of the cabinets are warped -___- but that's okay, because it means I'll eventually have a nicer kitchen. Unfortunately, the bathroom's also really old so a few things need some updating... Good thing I'm into home improvement projects and now I've created the perfect scenario for testing out everything I've learned through diy blog-reading! Ha ha ha.... :)

Now, onto this week's features:

Make these heart-shaped solid sugar scrubs for your Valentine, your friends, or yourself :) Spoil your skin during this winter with this recipe from Soap Deli News. For other skin goodies, try her hand-milled Valentine's Day soap and shimmer body glitter gel/eyeshadow.

Going on a trip? Make this fabric container wrap for carrying all of your first-aid items (or use it for your make-up brushes and tools, which is what I'd do :) Check it out at 2nd Story Sewing and see her men's t-shirt-to-tunic makeover.

Another time to take on a trip: a reversible sleep mask! Use your favorite complimentary fabric pieces for this creation from Clippie Dips :)

These homemade fortune cookies are so cute, and it would be soooo much fun to write fortunes for your friends and see their reactions when reading them! Get this cool recipe from Nifty Thrifty Things.

How interesting is this baked Finnish pancake? It looks fluffy and delicious, so give this special recipe a try at Adorned From Above! Also check out her other recipes: apple dumplings, hazelnut cream cake after dinner drink, and island punch cooler.

Make your weight-related resolutions easier (if you made any) wit this skinny cranberry scones recipe at My Sesame Seed Buns. These would be great for breakfast on the go!
