2017 Year in Review!

22 Comments

Hi everyone! To those that celebrated, I hope you had a wonderful Christmas! And I hope you all are looking forward to ringing in the new year as well ❤
2017 has been crazy fun for new patterns and projects 😀 We got to have 2 plush-making contests that were a blast, lots of giveaways and free promotions, and of course tons of free sewing patterns. I thought I’d make a top ten list of the most popular posts from this past year as a fun look back.


Of course Toothless makes it to #1 It was insanely popular thanks to all of you — and so much fun for me to make 😀

I had a lot of fun personally getting to do so many infographics, so I’m really happy one of them made it on the list 😀 My other favorite part of 2017 was planning so much stuff for Halloween season ❤ I’m sure other crafters & bloggers out there can agree that coming up with lots of content is tough, so I’m glad I got the chance to go all out during September and October. I hope to do the same again in 2018.
As for what else to expect in 2018? I’ve considered all the wonderful suggestions and ideas you all have sent me through the year and am excited to implement them 😀 These include at least one more infographic, more dragons, some foxes, axolotls, a Chocobo, and possibly ferrets/weasels. As always, I'm open to suggestions in the comments!

Thank you everyone so much for staying with my little blog up until now ❤ I wouldn’t be here if it weren’t for all of you! I hope you enjoy what’s to come in 2018!
