Guys, it’s here. The new site is finally here! Jordan Brantley knocked it out of the park, don’t you think?! There are still a few kinks to work out, but you can now follow me @thecraftedlife on Twitter, Instagram, and Pinterest. I really hope you love it as much as I do, but if you have questions about anything, feel free to leave a comment below or drop me a note— I’m always happy to help.

Now, on to the fun stuff! To celebrate my brand new internet home, I thought I’d host a giveaway. One of you will win a box filled to the brim with crafty goodness. I’m talking books, DIY essentials, a $50 gift card to Darby Smart and MORE! See below for details– best of luck!

  • Rachel, congratulations on the amazing new site. Everything looks wonderful. Your designer did a fantastic job. I look forward to seeing updates from The Crafted Life. Thank you for giving me a chance to win such a fantastic prize. What sort of platform is your website running on? I was so excited that I wouldn’t have to leave comments via Disqus anymore and yet it’s still here, haha. Was figuring with the rebrand you would be WordPressing it up. :) Best of luck to you with your new site and good luck to everyone entering this giveaway. XOX for all the inspiration you give to me with every single update you make.

    Edit: P.S., your gallery layout the way it’s set up with photos and estimated crafting time is fantastic. Really great. Keep it up!

    • Thank you so much Erica! Happy you like it!

      I’m on WordPress now, just a fan of Disqus :)

  • Shannon Crabill

    Kudos on the new blog! I was spooked that all the awesomeness of 52weeksproject would go away, but I see it hiding behind page 1 ;)

    I look forward to seeing what your new (awesome) bloghome has to offer

    And yes, the new design/layout is beyond amazing

  • I’m so excited for you! The new site looks amazing. I can’t wait to see what new projects you come up with :)
