Blog planners

 

I think blogging is about learning. When I started to write my crafty journal I didn't know too much about it. I have been always a writer and a crafter, but I have never written about my crafts and haven't written too much in English. I have to work always on computer and I feel myself familiar with it, but there are so many things what I don't understand.


E.g. I don't understarnd this no-reply blogger thing.. I followed a few tute not to be a no-reply commenter and I am not, but when I see my post feed on Blogger Buzz I see this: noreply@blogger.com (Hanni) at hannicraft Why??? (If you can answer this, please let me to know!!)


As my blog grows and I do more crafts I try to organize my blogger activities. I realized that I spend too much time with blogging or with something what I call blogging: rambling on linky parties, pinning to Pinterest, reading other blogs without commenting. I think this time could be more effective with leaving comments to let them to know I am an RSS follower or just like their projects. The only way I can do this more effectively, if I am getting more organized and make a little self-control. 
I have started to use two sheets: one is for the things-to-do, the other one is for measuring my weekly results. 
On this sheed I would like to organize my projects week by week. I need this because I have lot of WIP projects, which I would really love to finish, but somehow sometimes I forget about them.... And there are other projects, which ones I have already finished and would be great to post about.

I would like to also measure how my blog grows: how many pagewievs and comments I get, how many people find me interesting and start to follow. It is also important {as a self-control} what do I do for my blog: how many posts, FB posts/comments, pins, tweets I make week by week. I am not that 'I am following you follow me'- type, but I would like to register my new likes too.

  4. Great printables - thank you! I love that you included the linky parties and room for stats so you can really track how people are getting to your blog and hopefully improve! (I need to do a lot more of that!)

    I don't know if you've already figured this out or if this is what you tried, but I made this tutorial for the no reply stuff and at least some people have had success with it: http://www.thecraftyscientist.com/2011/08/how-to-enable-comment-replies-no-more.html. If you comment on my blog, I can tell you if it works! : )

  5. Cool printables. I use just a basic monthly calendar for my blog planning, but I never thought to track my followers/social network numbers. I'd love for you to share this post at my link party. :)

Simple beret crochet pattern

Do you know my Little Red Riding Hood Beret? I am releasing the new version of the original pattern. It is simplified, but a little bit tighter than the sample one was. The first sample of this hat has been made with 3.5 mm hook and DK weight yarn, the number of stitches were divisible by 16. This version is simplier. I used 4.00 mm (G hook) and worsted weight yarn for a fitted looking, the number of stitches is divisible by 12. 

Here is the newly made simplier version of this beret. This time in creamy peach color:

Difficulty level: easy – for beginners too (ch, dc, basic decreasing and increasing technics) Finished measurements: fits to an average women’s head
Materials:
•worsted weight yarn (approx. one smaller ball)
•crochet hook G/ 4.00 mm
•stitch marker (if you feel more comfortable with it)
•tapestry needle (to weave the ends)


Abbreviations: ch  chain dc double crochet dc2tog  decreasing two stitches with double crochet sl st 

Crochet purse for the Summer

Yippie, I have made my very first summer purse! Okay, actually it is not a new project,  a couple weeks ago you could already see some WIP pictures of it, but on the past weeks I was obsessed with sewing. That's why I deferred publication.
So time to show you one of my favourite crochet object. It is finally something for myself!! After several baby hats and simple amirgurumis for my family, I made a bag for myself... just for fun... You probably know what does it mean: when your family and friends discover 'your talent',  you don't have time to create just for yourself.



You could have already seen these squares and here where I promised, that I would make a bag from it!  So I kept my promise. It wasn't easy to turn the granny into a bag (or bag-like) shape. After several tryings with flowers and different shapes I found the simple chain loops the easiest way to turn the square into a bag.
It is not a big purse, I am sure that I won't take it for shopping, but…

Crochet Frog Applique {pattern}

A few months ago my cousin sent me a picture from a pair of baby shoes with frog applique, that she wanted for Lili. I made a quick google search for a pattern, but didn't find any. So I tried to figure out how to crochet the applique. I must confess, that the shoes are still not ready, because the first try turned out too small for Lili's feet. And now as she is learning to walk, she needs for professional shoes. So I will use these frogs later for another project. If you have any tip what should I make with them, share with me!

Materials:  - a few yards of DK weight yarn (or any weight by your choice) in green, white and red
Tools & notions: - G / 4.00 mm hook - safety eyes
- needles
Instructions The Head Chain 4. R1 Ch2, make 1hdc in the 3rd st from the hook. Hdc 1 in next 3 sts. In last (corner) st make 4 hdc's. On the back side of the beginning ch-4 make 1 hdc in next 3 sts, make 2 sts in last st. Join to the top of the beg ch2 with a sl st. R2 Ch2, make 1 hdc in sa…
