Craft Month Review

I'm always a little at loose ends come early April. I just don't know what to do with myself after all those late night crafts!

The Wreath from Day 16
I think it was about the fourth day of Craft Month when the dude asked if he was going to lose me to the blog.
"It's only a month."
"No, there's the other month of blogging."
"Oh, November..."
"Yeah, I lose you to the blog for 1/6th of my life!"
We've made it through another Craft Month, marriage intact. Good news! The bad news is that I've already started thinking about what I might do in 2017. If you'd like to have a say, you can take the poll in the sidebar!

So let's review:
Page Views: 8,972
Most popular post: It's still Irish Potatoes.
Most popular from this year: My mason jar lid finishing

Most Comments: Winter Felt Flower Wreath
My Favorite: It's gotta be the beaded edge finish.
Dude's Favorite: "Either the needlebook or the turtle."

Facebook favorite: Watermelon album (but I think people may have been "liking" that I had complete all 31). 
Instagram likes: (I only posted about half to Instagram) Scissor fob
Number of Pinterest Fails: Just one, the retractable tape measure cover. Are we counting bad starts? Because then you have to add in the triangle fold card and the paper star.

This is my 2500th post on this blog o' mine. And I couldn't have done it without you. Thanks!

Whew! I'm exhausted just thinking about 2500 blogs. I'm a mere babee and an idiot because I can't remember what number blog I'm on. I just know it is engraved into my schedule that I must blog on Saturday and Wednesday!!! I always enjoy your take on things. Thank you!

I voted! My favorite was definitely the turtle!

Linda said...

Wow Nikki that's awesome. 2500 posts. I don't think I'll be around that long to get that many posts.


Bea said...

Well, it's been a great month for us - many thanks. I voted. Maybe you just need to sit and relax (sleep?) for a few days before you dive back in.

That is a real achievement. I haven't been back to my blog for months and I don't know why. I enjoy writing, I am stitching, I just haven't combined the two. Please keep going with yours, I really enjoy it and again, congratulations. Irene xx

Congrats on your 2500 post.

My favorite is still the Somewhere Safe box. I made my own but smaller. I included it at my quilt guild program about handy tools. Someone asked if I might lose the box. Luckily, NO. I almost never lose things...with the exception of the buttons and thread the box was created to keep safe.

Congratulations on surviving Craft Month! I have voted for next year, you won't be surprised at what option I chose.

My favourite craft was the Exploding Book this year.

Also, congratulations on the 2500 posts. At the rate I blog it will take me another 20 years to reach that landmark!

Brigitte said...

Your craft month was a real success, and 2500 blogs, what can I say other than congratulations!!

Laura said...

Congrats on so many posts! That is super. You really manage to keep them interesting, too.
I wrote a comment the other day and when I went to post it...who knows what disappeared. I wasn't up to re-typing. So, let me say again how much I enjoyed Craft Month!

Robin in Virginia said...

Again, congratulations on completing, surviving, and sharing during craft month! I'm not picking a favorite because I enjoyed all of your creations. Enjoy your week!

Amazing number of posts! Congrats! I never even came close. Oh, well. I know you'll have fun, no matter what you do.

Oma said...

You are truly amazing, not only do you produce such lovely projects, you post about them. I admire the fact that you do so well on challenges. I am a former blogger who decided I didn't enjoy blogging. So I do enjoy all those that do it so well. You make it look so effortless and I know it s not. Congratulations for 2500 posts. You deserve kudos and lots of stitching time.

Beth said...

Enjoyed all your posts and crafting ideas. The Dude should tell you, "Well done!"

Sara said...

Congrats on your achievement and thanks for sharing with us! I really enjoy seeing your craftiness:)
