Sunday Linky Party #96 + Goodies

Hi all, hope you're all having another great Sunday! After the end of this coming week, I will be going on maternity leave and busy building furniture that I ordered online which have been delivered to my house in pieces (of course). Annnnnd on another note, it's Super Bowl Weekend! Who's having a grunting man-party and not doing anything crafty (aside from making delicious appetizer dishes)? I'm just looking forward to shopping at near-empty stores because hopefully, most people will be indoors watching the game :) I found some awesome stuff at Marshall's lately so I want to go back and see what else is good. Anyway, check out this week's features!

In the spirit of Valentine's Day, make this cute couple map silhouette art piece from The Crafty Scientist! Is there a reason why the girl looks like she has more connections to her heart?? Is it because we're supposed to be more complicated??? :)

Make this really cool succulent planter piece for your coffee table! Find this great idea/tutorial at Love Live and Garden :)

Impress your friends with these professional-looking gift tags. Does the tag above look like something you'd buy from a little paperie shop? Get the tutorial at Clippie Dips!

You know those holiday shirts/sweaters that you'd probably never wear again? They'd probably make perfect pillows for your home! Check out this great idea from Meeha Meeha.

Can you tell that the rose in the heart bowl is made of marshmallows, which you can easily make yourself? Make a bunch for cake/cupcake decor or just eat them for fun, with this tutorial from Twigg Studios. Make tissue paper tulips and wooden cross-stitch hearts with her tutorials, too.

Perfect as appetizers for any event, make these 3-ingredient crescent sausage bites from The Kitchen is My Playground. Just make a bunch because I bet they'll be gone in no time! Try her chocolate Valentine Kiss cookies and 20 party food favorites, too.

How beautiful are these pear and cardamom crepes? They deserve to be made for a special breakfast occasion, preferably by someone else (like a husband! :) Get this recipe from Sweet Boutique.

For those who have never baked pears (like me), this honey butter baked pear dish is a must-try recipe because it's sooooo easy and it looks delicious, and things generally turn out good when butter and/or honey is part of the recipe :) Try this from A Pinch of Joy!

Mmm... my husband would love this recipe because he likes dipping sandwiches into sauces for some reason. It must be because it's fun. Get this Crock pot french dip sandwich on garlic bread recipe from This Silly Girl's Life and try her honey garlic shrimp stir-fry and blanched vegetables recipes, too.

For a warm zesty soup, try this fire-roasted tomato-red pepper soup. Love the grilled cheese "croutons," which really completes the picture! Find this at Lemon Tree Dwelling and try her spiced cran-peary compote!
