  21. Hello Jen,

    Great ideas.

    Who would’ve thought that we would have laundry love!

    Thank you for sharing.

    I’m not sure why the site doesn’t let you tab from name to email without jumping out of the actual box when leaving a comment (from name to email to website). I had to keep clicking in each both with the mouse.

  22. Awesome features! I feel humbled to have our cottage beadboard entry B&A included in them, thank you so much! And thanks again for hosting each week, it’s such a wonderful tool for us bloggers! Little Bit

  23. Thanks for the feature! Have a very happy Easter!

  25. Amazing features! I am dying over the craft closet. Makes me want to change mine again…I swear I think I change it weekly! Love Shannon @ Fox Hollow Cottage’s bathroom too!
