Links of Love: I Can Do That!

Posted By Jessica Fisher On November 14, 2009 @ 6:34 pm In Links of Love | 6 Comments


Can I just say that my sister Janel is brilliant? She hides her light under a bushel, truly. She didn’t even tell me about her blog’s new feature, Make-It Monday where she’s sharing ideas for homemade gifts [5]. You will love her ideas about making a Playdough Kit [6]. So clever and inexpensive. I never thought of buying bulk vinyl tablecloth from Walmart and cutting it down to size for individual placements. Genius!

A few other “Hey! That’s cool! I can do that!”

Thinking of using fresh squash or pumpkin in recipes this year instead of canned? Amy at Simply Sugar and Gluten Free [7] has a great tutorial on how to roast a pumpkin (and the seeds) in the oven [8]. Yummy for pumpkin pies!

Amy’s Finer Things [9] has very cute Turkey treats [10] to make for Thanksgiving or holiday parties at school.

Small Notebook’s Walnut Ornaments [11] would make really cute place cards at your holiday table.

Lynn [12] has made me think that I might actually be able to make homemade yogurt [13].

I appreciate Katie [14]‘s efforts to explore more whole ingredients for cooking. She clued me into coconut oil [15]. I’m looking forward to learning more about it and trying it out.

While you’ve still got fallen leaves on the ground, now’s a great time to start a compost bin. The Happy Housewife [16] offers a great tutorial on how to do it yourself [17]. And I’m thinking it would only cost about ten bucks at Walmart.

Stumbled on a good read lately? Tell us about it in the comments.
