Saturday Link List

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

This is another fun freebie for anyone crafty who enjoys retro kitchen labels.  Download the labels for free, then print them and follow the instructions for application.  There are a few different sets available.

This is something that may only be applicable to small shop owners, but I thought I'd throw it out here because it's a neat idea.  This site offers wholesale handmade items.

If you've been on Etsy for at least a few month, you've probably see Vicki's treasury before.  I've been fortunate to be included in a couple of her regular collections as well as one of her team features (I think I ended up in an EBW one).  The team feature is actually why I created my current Etsy photo.  It's a really fun idea and great exposure for so many Etsy sellers.  Vicki has instructions in her profile about how you can be included in the treasury.

I use Picasa all the time for my photo editing, but for some reason, I never think to use this awesome tool.  If you're interested in using Picasa to make a photo collage like this for your blog, web site, etc., this simple tutorial will walk you through the process.

I'm sharing a different type of recipe link today.  For those of you who enjoy step by step photos for your recipes, this site is for you.  There are all different types of recipes as well as other kitchen resources such as healthy eating tips.

I also wanted to share a recipe that I recently got from someone else's blog round up.  Jenny from A Bird in the Hand Art recently posted this pumpkin recipe in a pumpkin recipe round up that she did.
I used just a touch of cloves and nutmeg instead of the larger amounts that the recipe suggests.  I knew that I'd forget to put the powdered sugar on at the end...which obviously I did, but it is still delicious.  Jake really likes it, too.  We love pumpkin recipes so this will be a new one in the rotation.  Thanks Jenny!

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!


  1. I haven't seen one of those Artists Exposed treasuries in awhile but they are fun! That pumpkin cake looks really good too. We've made your biscuits twice and yesterday I made the no bake chocolate oatmeal cookies. They are delicious!

  2. I'm going out today to get the two ingredients Jenny spoke about for that pumpkin spice cake! And I use picassa all the time for collages. It's super easy and fun! {:-D

  3. I was fortunate enough to be featured in one of Vicki's treasuries as well :) They're so fun!
    And those recipes look SO good! I always need photos for my recipes :)

  4. I'm really enjoying these link lists you do!

  5. Thanks so much for the feedback everyone!

    Sharla, I'm so glad that you're enjoying the biscuits and no bake cookies!

    Deb, I hope that you enjoy the cake, too.

    Edi, I find that it's helpful to have photos for recipes, too.

    Thanks Cindy!
