Scorecard for 30DoC

I’ve been thinking about all those things I created during the 30 Days of Creativity (30DoC) project, and I decided to review and rate them in several areas:

Was it fun to make?  Did I like the results?  Would I suggest it to others? Would I do it again? Do I consider it a winner?

I’m using a scale of 1 to 10 with 1= No Way! and 10= Definitely!

Some projects didn’t really work in the end, but were fun to make.  I have to say the Chocolate Bowl project that ended up splattering melted chocolate all over me was fun.

Would I suggest it to someone else? No.   The final score isn’t always mathematically correct.  I rounded up for some and rounded down for others just depending on my own gut response.

I have a total of 7 projects that I gave the full score of 10 in the Winner Category.  Does that mean they’ll work for you or that you’ll love them?  Nope.  But those are the projects I will go back and do again, in fact, I’ve already completed another wrap bracelet and I did a batch of Sponged and Embossed Cards.  I want to make another batch of business cards because I so enjoyed making them and because I want to have business cards with my blog site on hand to give away.

The recipe for the Lacy Buttermilk pancakes made delicious pancakes even in a traditional but boring round shape.  I’ve made another batch of those but I loved the lace ones too and I’m sure I’ll make them again.

I don’t know how soon I’ll do a Bleach Pen T-Shirt but I’m completely delighted with the one I made and I am happy to put it on every time I wear it.

I’ve had my Image Journal for years but it had been gathering dust lately.  It was such a pleasure working on a layout that I plan to continue doing pages.

My final project, Macrame Bracelets, has been keeping me busy in recent days.  Some friends at work wanted a closer look so I  organized a crafting session at lunch.   I love it when I can combine crafting, eating, talking and laughing with friends!  I’ve made a few more macrame bracelets and I keep going back to the bead store for more supplies so I’m not finished with this project yet.

What were your favorite projects?  Are there any you’ve tried or plan to try?

Thanks for the visit.

  1. What a great post! I LOVE having the links to all your projects in one place . . . thank you! 🙂

    • Thank you! I’ve been trying to get it together for awhile but it took me awhile to get all the links in place. I finally finished it so I’m glad to know someone is happy to get all those darn links in one place. I’ve also put a tab at the top of my page with 30DoC for all the posts (last year too) from the 30 Days of Creativity projects.

    Didn’t have as much success with the pancakes as you did. The girls made the batter up at Sea Ranch and I had bought a squirt bottle. Cut the tip off to make a slightly bigger opening, but keep having obstructions, I guess there were some lumps in the batter. First you’d get nothing coming out, then a big rush of batter. I even tried a zip-lock bag so I could see if there was a lump and break it up, but that didn’t give me enough control.
    However, the pancakes were delicious, even if we weren’t successful making lace ones.

    I am still smile at the chocolate on your face! 😉 Just going through your list I think I would love to try the spoon rose, tissue flower and button rings. I think you know how much I loved your macrame! LOL! 😉

    • I did macrame again today. I have one bracelet started but ideas for more and supplies for probably more than I’ll make. I’m glad the chocolate picture gave you a smile. My boyfriend told me that was what made the latest post for him. Please keep me posted if you try any of the projects.
