Wednesday Weekly #106

Happy Wednesday, makers! It’s been two weeks since the last Wednesday Weekly, and I usually try not to skip them, but this time I decided to let it go. Caroline and I were in NYC and we had such an amazing time at camp and hanging out in Brooklyn! We came home feeling so inspired and full of love for the community. We promise a camp-focused podcast episode is coming your way soon! On another note, there were some really amazing pattern releases and makes these past two weeks. Check out how pretty the releases all look together – I love when that happens!
