Wednesday Weekly #105

Happy Wednesday, makers! This week I am frantically trying to get some things together before my trip back to Camp Workroom Social! I can’t wait to go this year, especially since Caroline is coming with me this time. We are going to spend a few days in Brooklyn, too, so if you have recommendations for good places to eat and shop, let me know! Since I will be away next week there won’t be a Wednesday Weekly on the 18th. I was toying with the idea of putting it together while traveling but ultimately decided to take a break. We will be back with regular blog programming when I return!
