Link Roundup - Post Thankful Edition

Yup, still thankful. :>) I'm writing at least part of this immediately after publishing the last one, but I am not intending to publish until Saturday to not shock you poor hanger-oners too much. Let's get down to business!

After having heard that Tangles is a super-great movie, I bet interest in things like these Rapunzel: Dresses & Tresses from ikat bag will be high.

This post is over a year old, but I still love the pattern on these Fabric Styrofoam Balls from Knitty Gritty Thoughts. has a tutorial on How to Cover Cording to Create Your Own Piping.

Straight from the horse's mouth, so to speak, check out the craft section at

I'm loving this Low Mess Color Collage at Frugal Family Fun Blog.

This Mini Accordion File Folder from is admittedly beyond my non-scrapbooking capabilities, but very cute nonetheless.

And Hubs wonders why I don't throw anything away - check out how to use pieces of travel wipes packages to make Peek-a-boo Learning to make interactive flash cards.

This is an AWESOME resource, so bookmark it! Valerie at Frugal Family Fun Blog provided us with a Suggested Supply List of things for tons of frugal fun, AND she linked her posts that use those items, so you can get more mileage from your supplies, too!

Neat gift idea alert - Handmade Bath Salt Pouches for the Shower OR Bath from The Mother Huddle.

This flies in the face of most of what I have read about making biscuits, but I like the ideas in this How to Make Fluffy, Flaky Biscuits from Cooking During Stolen Moments.

Cinnamon? Check. Pancakes? Check. Cinnamon Bun Pancakes from How Does She? might increase the size of my buns, but I'm pretty sure it'd totally be worth it.

Really, doesn't adding Oreos make anything better? Check out this Mini Pumpkin Oreo Cheesecakes from Inside BruCrew Life. Mmm!

Speaking of pumpkin, I love to eat but have never tried making pumpkin seeds myself. (I haven't carved a pumpkin in years - I just leave them on the porch until they aren't good for anything but cattle feed.) Katie at Kitchen Stewardship explains How to Make Crispy (Soaked) Pumpkin Seeds.

As a huge fan of pretty much all things fondue, I was intrigued by this recipe for Pumpkin Fondue at Chica and Jo.

Ooh, these Whole Wheat Sourdough Cheese Rolls as seen on Kelly The Kitchen Kop sound delicious.

We've managed to get rid of most of the stragglers, but next fall I plan to try out this eHow method of How to Kill House Flies without Chemicals.

This goes with the several posts in the last Link Roundup on natural health remedies - Katie from KS also tells us how to use Garlic to Make the Sick Bugs Go Away.

An update to the link from a few weeks ago, Donielle at Naturally Knocked Up has some Tips for Making Elderberry Syrup.

No Time for Flash Cards has a fun activity on Ice Fishing and Color Mixing.

I have made some raw Apple Cider Vinegar (fruit scrap vinegar) and admittedly I'm a little afraid to eat it. There are several other uses for raw ACV listed here at Kelly the Kitchen Kop.

I was very blessed to to win a copy of "In The Kitchen: Real Food Basics" - if you'd like to learn more about this ebook, you can read Sarah's review here at heartland Renaissance.

Learn how to use strawberry baskets and more to make bubbles in this post at Parent Hacks.

Though I have printed this out, I haven't tried the moves shown in You Don't Know Squat at Katy Says to help strengthen your pelvic floor and more.

Admittedly, this article on Outsourcing by Danielle Bean at InsideCatholic wasn't what I expected but it sure made me laugh.

Jen at Conversion Diary is mother to four children under six years old. She tells us My Answer to "Do You Want More Children?"

Happy clicking!
