Sunday Linky Party #97 + Goodies

Hi all, this is an exciting weekend because... it's Chinese New Year (aka Lunar New Year) today AND it'll be Valentine's Day on Thursday! Do you know what that means? If you've already fallen off the wagon for your New Year's resolutions (remember those from January 1st?), here's your chance to start again. Unfortunately, if your resolution was to quit chocolate, good luck with that when Valentine's Day rolls around. Anyway, time to check out this week's features :)

I love this fingerprint people idea from Art Club Blog! These are so cute and would make great art pieces or wrapping paper for kids and adults to make!

Get festive for Valentine's Day with this cute fluttering hearts garland by Alderberry Hill! For other holiday crafts, check out her Valentine treat boxes.

Check out this cool fabric book jacket! It'll make you want to take out your book all the time, and maybe encourage you to read more :) Get this tutorial at This Blog is Not for You and check out these other posts: free Valentine's Day printables and blogging basics.

Isn't this mason jar lantern romantic? Make a bunch and set the mood for a romantic dinner together with your favorite person! Head to The Thinking Closet for the tutorial.

These handbags are easier to make than they look! For your own new purse, head to Emmaline Bags & Sewing Patterns and get started!

If you've never worked with concrete before, it's a good time to give it a try, and why not make a sculptural monument of your initial?? Learn how at Twigg Studios and visit her other posts: mason jar cookies and peach tissue poppies.

Start dinner off with this filling chipotle sweet potato chowder from The Kitchen is My Playground and get your daily vitamin A!

For a yummy way to get everyone to eat their veggies, make this chicken spinach artichoke pizza, with the pizza dough from scratch! Get this at Lemon Tree Dwelling and her pie in a jar recipe, too.

Instead of your typical dessert, dig into this gardner's pie, which is really just veggie-loaded mashed potatoes :) Get this recipe at The First Year Blog and her barbecue dijon chicken in the Crock Pot!

For a real dessert, make this rich dark decadent salted turtle tart from Sweet Boutique. I wonder what it tastes like, but it looks delicious :)
