The Business Bar + Two Free #GIRLBOSS Printables

Free #GIRLBOSS PrintableI am so excited about today’s post I can hardly contain myself.

I just finished reading the book #GIRLBOSS, and let me tell you, it blew my mind. Seriously, it’s a must read if you haven’t already! So I don’t forget all of Sophia’s wisdom, I thought it would be fun to turn her words into art/daily reminders to have around the house. And what better way to bring you The Crafted Life’s first ever printable than by teaming up with one of the most badass #GIRLBOSSes I know, Jordan Brantley.

If you aren’t familiar with Jordan, she’s the brains behind my site design. More importantly, she just founded The Business Bar, which is an awesome resource for small businesses that need help improving their brand identity, marketing strategies, content design and more. They also sell a wide variety of workbooks that are great for any budget.

If you have your own business, or are considering starting one, I hope you’ll check them out. Plus you can use the code: crafted for $10 off! Now, on to the downloads:

New in the Shop: Geometric Photo Holders

Handmade Geometric Photo Holders available on Etsy

After reading your kind responses to my diy geometric photo holder project, I decided to add some to my Etsy shop! Who needs traditional picture frames, right?! You can use these to display photos in your home or even use them as name card holders at a dinner party or wedding. Each piece, made of Makore wood, was cut with a scroll saw, sanded, and stained by hand. I’ll be adding different types of wood and finishes over the next week or so, so stay tuned!

For a limited time I’m also including a mini print of one of my original photographs (pictured above), so I hope you’ll check them out!

Since moving last month, we have yet to really yet to settle into our new place– everything is a diy project in the making, I tell ya! However, one space we wanted to makeover before winter came was our balcony/deck, so I teamed up with 3M to make this colorful grill organizer project. You can see the full tutorial on Curbly!

Happy Weekend!

The weekend is finally here friends! And since I know you’re on your way to make really big things happen, I’ll keep this short and sweet. Here are some projects that totally caught my eye this week:

- The prettiest Ikea chair makeover I’ve ever seen.

- I have a feeling I’m going to make several of these wire mesh baskets for our place. Fran makes it look so easy!

- Pink + plants = the perfect table runner diy (using inkodye!).

- I’m pretty much in love with everything Kelly does. Seriously, she made rings out of hot glue!

- This retro diamond painting is absolutely stunning and looking surprisingly easy to do.

Until next week!
