Saturday Link List

Welcome to this week's edition of my link list.  Enjoy!

The title of this free pattern is a little misleading, as it is obviously not a pattern for the Van Gogh painting.  But it is still a lovely cuff pattern.  It would be great to see this done in a bright color palette.

Edi wrote a blog post last year (yep, I have tons of saved links that I'm sharing with you) about using the "ship now" function on PayPal, which is wonderful for creating labels for purchasing that do not go directly through PayPal.  For example, Amazon Marketplace payments aren't made until your item ships, so it's great to create a label with "ship now."  I also use it for the occasional random package like a birthday or baby present for an out of town friend.

This is a perfect (FREE) tool for those who enjoy making cards, scrap books, announcements, flyers, etc. that can use some decorative details or borders.

I bookmarked this a while back when I was trying to figure out what to do with the numerous wire hangers that we have.  That was before we bought our current house and we inherited about 50 more.  Honestly I still haven't done much with them, but it's great if you can find creative uses for a few.

I had to find a better picture than the one on the site so I got this one here.  I'm sure that most people reading this don't know that my dad's parents are Jewish.  His mom makes these every year.  The poppy seed kind is my favorite.  One of these days I will get inspired to make them myself.  There are more recipe variations on this site.

Did you use one of the resources, tutorials, or recipes from my link list?  Leave me a link in the comments or send me an e-mail ( with your photos and stories.  I would love to post them here!
