Catch as Catch Can 173

EDITED to add:

Catch as Catch Can will be on vacation next week due to Blogapalooza 2014.

It’s been a whirlwind week since arriving home Sunday night from Atlanta.  Monday was catch-up day with 10 Etsy orders.  I wanted to get them all done right away because a cool front was arriving, and I wanted to work on some projects.  I didn’t get as much done Tuesday and Wednesday as I planned due to the exhaustion of the last week, but I sure enjoyed being outside during the cooler, less humid days.

Plans for Thursday and Friday afternoons will keep me away from projects until Saturday when it starts heating back up.  I digress—you’re here for features—GREAT features.
