I’ve had a fantastic time this past month making and posting so many things for the boys! I hope you’ve enjoyed our collection of tutorials, roundups and guest posts and that you’ll turn to it continuously in the future for ideas and inspiration.
Dana and I both get pretty tired, but it’s so worth it when I look back and see everything as a whole. I’m so proud of what we’ve got here. It’s been a busy month and we have had so many wonderful contributions. The response from readers has been so positive and enthusiastic. THANK YOU for joining us both as readers and for contributing your fantastic creations and ideas to our photo pool. I hope you’ll keep doing that throughout the coming year.
Here’s a look back at some of our tutorials….
and a few of our guest posts:
Would you do something for me please? If you haven’t yet, would you please take a moment to scroll through our archives (and here’s Dana’s BOY archives) and find at least one guest tutorial or post that you especially liked or appreciated and then make sure you GO OVER TO THEIR BLOG AND THANK THAT PERSON for all of the work they put into that project? I’m not sure everyone knows how many hours it takes to put those tutorials together. It would really make my day if you guys would just take a second to do that. Thanks!
I would like to thank:
- All of our guest contributors for their fantastic posts. I was thrilled with how many guests were readers who had submitted their post ideas when we put out the call for contributions way back in November. You guys made this month what it is and without you I’d just be posting a bunch of stuff for Elliot.
- Two other people who deserve thanks are Carolyn who helped me with all of those roundup mosaics and Jess who helped me post updates to the Made By Rae Facebook page and Twitter.
- Thanks to our fabric sponsors Nido, Above All Fabric, Fabricworm, and Whipstitch who donated prizes for the awesome Boy Fabric Giveaways and to the shops that made our Boy Giveaway Day a success!
- And special thanks goes to Dana: I just love hanging out with you for this month every year! What a fantastic teammate to have on this supercool project. I love all of the ideas that are constantly streaming out of your head and that great sense of humor. Your talent for blogging is truly inspiring! I take it as a huge compliment that half the emails I get during Boy Month are from people who think that you and I are the same person….hee.
I can’t end Boy Month without strutting my stuff just a little bit. Here’s one last final hurrah for all the new stuff that I made! Yaaaaaay! *does Kermit arms*
