My Month in Numbers - April

Hi it's the end of the month (hasn't it come around quick!) so time for My Month In Numbers.
It was fortunate that when I was thinking of how to display this month's numbers the free shape of the week from Silhouette happened to be a pie chart. Dilemma over.
So here's the numbers for April.....
  • 7 fabric purses and handbags sewn
  • on the 27th worked at TDC for 25 years
  • 3 cupboards cleared, sorted and de-stashed
  • 58 total squares of expedit shelving. New shelf delivery.....is it enough? It'd better be!
  • 9 beers tasted at the beer festival
  • 1 man show of Fever Pitch seen at the Theatre Royal. Remember 1989? 0-2. Micky Thomas.
  • 60 labels ordered and received for my sewn projects
So that's April, onwards to see what May brings and if you want to see more of April's numbers visit Julie at Notes on Paper

I would never have thought about using the pie chart like this, oh it's fabulous

So cool! My mind is boggling at the numbers though - 25 years at TDC! I hope they are giving you a medal or something. And I can't believe you have made 7 purses and handbags!
Love the look of your labels too x

That is a great way of displaying the numbers - very original

Julie Kirk said...

I love the labels too - and the fact that you need them! Great to hear.

Love the pie-chart - inspired! I bet your album is shaping up really nicely now.

I'm quite jealous of the 58 cubby holes though.

You're on the board: http://pinterest.com/notesonpaper/my-month-in-numbers/

Thanks for joining me.

Such an interesting way of displaying your numbers. I thought at first it was a pizza. Really must get my eyes tested again. Also had a peek at your monthly make. What a lovely clutch bag.

I'm not sure 58 units is enough lol. Love the labels.

Louise said...

wow Amanda - this is a fantastic way of displaying your numbers. Funny enough i pinned a pie chart layout a while back and have been meaning to give it a go...think you have inspired me to do just that!

Love those labels and how many cubby holes did you say lol!! Will you be blogging them once they have been filled?

P.S No i was very good and didn't pinch any eggs. Now they are older they would notice...i mean they keep count :)

Ooh, the stash sorting and new shelves sounds very exciting! And the pie-chart way of recording the monthly numbers is a fabulous idea. x

Oh I just love your pie chart concept for this layout, Amanda! After Carrie and I were in New York we did a scrapbook together and she did a layout with photos of the food we ate. She shaped it like a pizza with each photo cut in a wedge and put together. Just love the looks of this!

Ohh...I love this Amanda. I always like to look at your month in numbers layout. *Ü* Funny...I have been dealing with 'pie charts' for the past couple of months...with my diet chart! You mean you haven't got enought room for your stash?! LOL. I need to sort my Expedit...it's not up yet...gotta sort the room...but I have BIG plans for July. *Ü* TFS. ~Glen~

Brilliantly inventive use of that template, Amanda! Very creative ... and I was wondering about those beers. Was that nine in one day?!

Sheena said...
