Saturday Link List

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

I'm pretty sure that I shared another fee calculator on here a while back, but here's another option for you.  I'll be the first to admit that my process for determining prices is less than scientific.  However, the few times I have run a check on a fee calculator or with another formula, I've felt that the results were very accurate so I guess that my intuition isn't too bad.  It never hurts to double check, though.

If you are new to wire wrapping or looking for advice about what tool to use for a certain wire technique, this is a great resource.

I have not linked the Keyword Tool on my link list series yet, so I had to include it.  I won't elaborate too much, though, since I've gone on about this at some length here before.  If you are brand new to reading my blog and want some tips about the Keyword Tool, ask away.

 Jenny shared a great tutorial this summer as part of the Iron Craft Challenge for making a woven bracelet out of shrinky dink.  I've never used shrinky dink before and found this process to be really interesting.  She does a great job breaking down the steps to complete this project.

I'm sharing a different kind of recipe this week.  I found this link when I was doing research for a hub a while back.  A number of people who read this are moms and/or teachers so I thought it would be appropriate to include it here.  In addition to several Play Doh recipes, this page also has recipes for clay, flubber, doughs, gak, and many more fun items.

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 think I might have missed your article on Google's keyword tool.I'm going to read up on that right now!
    Cool "watch" ;-)

  2. Dear Rose, The bracelet is beautiful. Have a lovely weekend. Blessings my dear, Catherine xo

  3. Fun collection of things to check out. Thanks for showing my bracelet tutorial; I was pretty proud of that one.

    I had a calculator watch in 8th grade. It was turquoise and I thought it was so cool. I was a nerd.

  4. I've found the fee calculators nice for comparing Etsy/Paypal fees vs. Consignment and Wholesale fees. But as for luck yet!
    Jenny's bracelet is so fun...I love see the new pieces she comes up with for her Iron Craft Challenge!

  5. 1. I LOVE play doh!! Like, an un-natural amount.
