Wednesday Weekly #56

Hellllooooo, makers! Get ready for ALOT of inspiration this week on the Wednesday Weekly, you guys have been busy!  I often find it so hard to narrow down my selections for the showcase, and this week I just couldn’t leave anything out.  My pre-travel stress has set in (leaving for Camp Workroom Social tomorrow morning!!), so I’ve been trying to figure out what to bring.  Highs of 22 degrees celsius in the city, lows of 0 degrees at camp = impossible to pack for!  I’m looking forward to the moment when I finally get on that plane and can stop re-thinking my travel wardrobe. Does anyone else suffer from this stress?
