Share Your Creations Party #52

Welcome to Share Your Creations party #52! I hope you will link up and join in the fun!
 
This week I thought I would do something a little different. I thought I would feature the links that received the most traffic. This is not how I normally pick the features from the party. I really try to rotate and feature as many different blogs as possible. Most of the time I don't even check the number of clicks the links get. Lately I have been just because I've been curious to see how much traffic the party is getting and I've been very surprised! For instance, Liz at Savvy Seasons received 308 clicks! Wow! That's a lot of traffic. Her mantle is stunning!
 
 The second highest number of clicks goes to Maria Elena at Our Home Away From Home with 251 clicks. She shared her pretty laundry room that was redone a few years back.


 Third goes to Shenita at Embellishments by SLR  with 232 clicks. She shared her beautiful fall mantle where she added in some shades of blue.
 
 This is not a competition by any means and I only wanted you to see that people are checking you out! lol...There were several other blogs that had 150 to 200 clicks.

Here are a few tips on getting more clicks...

When you go to link up you are able to choose a picture from your post.
 Try to link a photo that is more up close rather than set back. Also make sure the photo is eye catching and has good composition. Those are just a few little tips I've learned when linking to parties.
 
I am in the middle of fall decorating, custom orders, and restocking my Etsy store right now. Everything is in a mess. I think this is the only small section of my house that looks decent that I would want to share! I added a basket of acorns, a leaf bowl and a container of wheat to the coffee table. I also added a soft throw blanket in a brownish gold color (sure don't need that yet) and a gold pillow with a rhinestone accent to the chair. I'll be sharing more pictures when I get everything in order. After all, it is still summer...just getting a head start!
  
 
What did you create?
 
You are welcome to share anything you have created. An item, a recipe, a room you have decorated, a vignette, a piece of furniture you have painted and the list goes on and on...
 
One more thing...Thank you for all of the sweet comments on my fall mantle. I really appreciate them!!!

Ah! I want that wheat grass bundle on your table. I pinned something just like that a long time ago. So pretty Kristen. It all looks lovely and elegant. I'm going to order some fall stuff from you tomorrow. I'll look in the morning at your store or do custom.

Hi Kristen,
Haven't been blogging lately but thought I would check in with some old blog friends. Your home looks beautiful and so ready for fall! I still need to decorate for fall. So busy though! I recently blogged about a bedroom we turned into a den. Check it out if you get a chance and spread the word. I think everyone forgot about me (that's what happens when one stops blogging :(
Take Care & God Bless!
