Busy Monday — April 22

There were loads of great ideas, tutorials, recipes and more shared last week.  My brain just automatically categorizes everything, just like a big ole file cabinet.  Show me a list of anything and I’ll start clumping likes together.  That’s the way the features came out this week.  You all are so amazing I had to make myself stop at three categories with three each.  Thanks for linking to A Busy Monday!
