Saturday Link List

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

Are you searching for craft fairs and festivals in your area?  Whether you are a vendor or a buyer, this is a great resource.  The site also lists music festivals.

Some of you may remember that I posted a link for submitting blog posts to Handmadeology recently.  You can also submit your treasuries.  This is particularly relevant if you create treasuries for upcoming seasons, holidays, and other timely trends.

I don't read the Etsy blog very often, especially these days.  How many more "quit your day job" posts can you read?  This is a great post, though.  It's really some different advice from Etsy, which is a nice change of pace.  If you do any kind of custom work, you will most likely gain something from this.

Normally I post tutorials or free patterns that are appealing for a wide variety of crafters.  I had to share this beading tutorial, though.  Victoriya walks you through creating the letters of the alphabet with beads.  The directions are a little confusing, but once you understand how to create different letter sections and start putting them together, you'll be on your way.

The sweet potato fries recipe the other week was a huge hit so I wanted to share this one as well.  Anyone who grows zucchini knows that there is a point in the summer when you suddenly have way more zucchini than you know what to do with.  This is a great new recipe to add to your collection.

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. Those zucchini fries do sound good! I'll have to check out that custom info too. Thanks for the links Rose!

  2. Those fried look amazing! I tried to grow zucchini, it didn't work out too well, lol!

  3. I keep on thinking I'll get back to read Handmadeology, but I don't. Maybe I'll submit a blog post one of these days... {:-D

  4. Thanks for the festival link. And I'm off to read the Etsy Blog article right now!

  5. The fries look great! Thank you for the links.

  6. I'm glad that people appreciated another fry recipe! I'm glad that some of these other links were helpful, too.

    Kristin, we haven't tried to grow much of anything yet...maybe next year!


Your comments mean so much to me! Thank you for taking the time to leave your thoughts, questions, and feedback.
