April 2017 Recap

Follow my blog with Bloglovin

With April at a close, I thought I’d do a little recap on it. I’m thinking about doing this every month. But I haven’t decided yet.


So, to start, I did my very first craft show this month! It was very long, and I was super tired by the end. But it was fun, spending time with my mom (you can find her blog here, she’s a crafter). I basically designed an whole line for my bottle cap things. I sold two buttons to a sweet little toddler!

Also, I got my first commission buttons done! It was cool! Therewere six of them; Koro-sensei, Karma, and Nagisa from Assassination Classroom and three of her own characters. It took longer than I would have liked, but I got them done! She loved them, and I’m so happy that she did!


I colored my hair for the first time in a while!! I did it cyan and fuchsia, and then covered over that with aqua blue (you can go read my hair color review here).


I celebrated 10 months with my boyfriend! He’s the first guy I’ve been with this long! I love him so much, and I’m so glad that we’re together. Sure, we have our ups and downs. But he’s sweet, loving and supportive, and just – so much more!

I changed my username on Instagram to match my business name, and I also started up a Facebook page and an Etsy store! If you want to check those out, links below!!

Also, my boyfriend and I played Little Nightmares the day it came out – it was trippy. But it was also a cool little game (might do a review)! If you don’t know what Little Nightmares is, you can watch the trailer here.


Also, in April, I started really advertising more! Plus, this is two months since I started my blog! It’s so exciting!! I also reached ten blog posts, and fifteen followers last month! I’m hoping to really raise that up in the months to come.

The last few weeks were crammed with finals, but I got out of school the third of this month! So now it’s time to get crackin’ on my blog and business! I’m super excited!

Annnddd…yeah, that about sums up my April!

How was your April? Was it productive?

Thanks for Reading!

  1. Wow great achievements this month, way to go! I haven’t heard about Little Nightmares yet but the design looks great.. is it really scary? Maybe I’ll give it a try if it’s not too difficult a game. Great post this one, I love to see how people are spending their time!

    1. Thank you so much! And Little Nightmares isn’t extremely scary, but has some good spooks and the atmosphere is eerie and suspenseful. It wasn’t too difficult, it’s mostly figuring out puzzels. There isn’t any dialogue to give you directions. Overall, it’s a great game and has a lot of mystery!

  2. Good day I am so delighted I found your blog page, I really found you by error, while I was searching on Yahoo for something else, Regardless I am here now and would just like to say thank you for a fantastic post and a all round exciting blog (I also love the theme/design), I don’t have time to browse it all at the minute but I have bookmarked it and also added in your RSS feeds, so when I have time I will be back to read a lot more, Please do keep up the superb b.|
