Link Roundup - Back in the Saddle Edition

No, not really a saddle, but behind the lawn mower. :>) We broke it out for the first time today, and wow, do things look better around here! With all the rain we got, it's really greening up and growing.

I'm trying to play catch up with links, so here we go. (By the way, there are some links for Easter that you'll have to tuck away for next year.)

Not sure that I have the required patience, but these Rhinestone Eggs from Crafty Cupboard sure make an impression.

house on hill road tells us how to make Gardener's Hand Scrub - just in time for spring digging in the dirt.

This Pom-Pom Tulle Skirt Tutorial from Happy Together is so fun!

One thing the internet has taught me is how to look at things in a whole new light, like this Pool Noodle Garland at No Time For Flashcards.

I feel like I've linked to this before, but I can't find it, so here we go: Kelleigh Ratzlaff Designs gives us a free printable to make Envelope Templates and a tutorial to put them all together. I've been eyeing the cash system and this would certainly help me keep track of it (and in such a cute way, too).

Another one I thought I'd liked before, Craft Passion explains how to Recycle a T-Shirt Into Yarn.

So we've all seen how to make a chalkboard using chalkboard paint, but how about Making Your Own Chalkboard PAINT?!? (@ Your Better Style)

Poor Katie's site has been down, but hopefully soon you'll be able to check out how to Soak and Dehydrate Oats at Kitchen Stewardship. (And we're not sure what this means for the Get the Junk Out Spring Cleaning Carnival, this week was to be parabens and next week I'm supposed to step up with food additives.)

It's no wonder I never throw anything away, when Valerie at Frugal Family Fun Blog shows us how to make Stamp Wheels using an empty roll of packing tape.

Serious Eats tells us how to Dye Easter Eggs Naturally.

More eggs - Wisdom of the Moon gives us 3 Less Frustrating Ways to Dye Blown Eggs.

Money Saving Mom tells us how to Save $20 Per Year By Switching Fonts.

We can learn how to Spring Clean Your Body With Real Foods at Simple Bites.

Even if you don't homeschool, there is still much wisdom in Five J's post on Teach Your Children to Fish.

More on the Science of Infant Sleep, Part III and Part IV at Secrets of Baby Behavior.

This doesn't fit anywhere else, but it's too cute not to share - check out this 1949 Birth Announcement in a fun aviation style.

Happy clicking!

We made envelopes out of an old calendar my mom had saved for us. Everyone that recieved them thought they were awesome!

A little tip if you decide to mail them like we did. I printed the addresses out on paper and then use double sided tape to put them on. The envelopes have to measure at 3 1/2 x 5 inches.
