Wednesday Weekly #26

Hello makers! I’m in the midst of a crazy few weeks work-wise and I am definitely feeling the pressure.  It is hard to balance work, life, and blog (yep, it gets its own category), but I am pushing through.  Do you ever feel like you don’t have time for everything?  Silly question, who doesn’t.  One thing I can count on is my Bloglovin’ and Instagram feeds being full of amazing makes from you guys, so thank you for that!  It makes for a wonderful break during the day 🙂
