Sunday (temporarily moved) Link List

Here is the weekly edition of my link list.  Enjoy!

This is a little different from my usual resources, but I thought that fellow crafters would appreciate this.  I'm sure that many of you are familiar with Marimekko.  Now you can enjoy it on your desktop any time that you want.

This is a great bead resource for purchasing wholesale.  I don't purchase enough of the same bead sizes and colors to make a lot of wholesale purchasing worthwhile, although I still try to purchase in bulk and at discount prices whenever possible.  If you use a lot of quantities of single items, it's worth looking at wholesale.

I know that I've posted at least one Handmadeology link on here before, but here's one more.  I know that many of you reading this write lots of great posts.  Consider submitting them to Handmadeology if they fit with any of the topics listed.

Jenny posted a great tutorial this summer for making a cheerful bottle cap flower.  I'm not into gardening, but this is totally up my alley.  Maybe next year when we invest in some pots for our front porch, I'll make a couple of these. :)

I try not to feature the same sites too many times, but I had to share one more recipe from chocolate & carrots right away.  (I may come back to it again in the future.)  I love lots of sweet potato recipes, including fries.  I love how this recipe includes an explanation for getting the fries crispy.  If you have never had homemade sweet potato fries before, I highly recommend them.

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!
