2016 is right around the corner! Crazy freakin’ town. And I’m about to be a mama to 2 little nuggets, ahh! And this blog thang will be six years old in February. And I wrote a book in 2015! And this month C.R.A.F.T. has been my full time job for 4 years! Wowzers. Blogging is a crazy (awesome!) thing, I tell everyone to start a blog about something they are passionate about. I mean why the heck not? A fun fact, C.R.A.F.T. had 6 million page views in 2015. 6 million?! This may sound ridiculous, but this is news to me, ha! I just don’t look at the numbers that closely. I do my best, post what I love, and cross my fingers that y’all love it too. Ok fine, and I post on social media like a crazy person, but who doesn’t these days?
Without further ado, here are the top 10 posts in 2015! Oh and you can see the top 10 posts of 2011, 2012, 2013, and 2014 here.

Wooo, go you! 6 million page views is AMAZING.
All of my most-viewed posts for 2015 were recipes from previous years. Funny how that works. Pinterest food pins are showing me love, I guess!
Hope you had a great Christmas and will have a great New Years!
