Hello Color November Special

Hello ColorOMG Happy November! Can you believe we’re here already?! Because I know holiday shopping season is now officially upon us, I wanted to offer you guys a special to make your list even easier to tackle.

When you purchase a copy of my book Hello Color from Nov 1st until Nov 30th, I will send you a home sweet home keychain for free! Keep it for yourself or pair it with the book for the color lover in your life, either way it’s free!

How to Claim Your Keychain:

1. Buy your book! It doesn’t matter where you get your copy– you can get it on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Target, Books A Million, or even your local bookstore. If you’re in Canada, try Indigo or your local bookstore. If you’d like a signed copy, you can pick one up in my Etsy shop.

2. Email a receipt to hello@thecraftedlife.com. A screenshot of your order confirmation or cell phone photo of the physical receipt is just fine. I’ll write you back to confirm and get a shipping address and then you should receive your keychain shortly after that.

Hello Color Book Tour Recap!

Hello Color Book TourMan I hope you guys love photos because today I’m finally sharing all the snaps from the Hello Color book tour! For five weeks this summer (during July – August) Ryan and I had the privilege of driving across the country together to meet and craft with some of you. I can’t tell you how much it meant to me to be able to hangout with some of you face to face and to celebrate this accomplishment. Sometimes working by yourself feels like you’re just pushing content into a void, but this trip was the nicest reminder of why it is I do what I do. It was a summer of adventure and color and one I’ll never forget, so thank you!

I also want to give a quick shoutout to the brands that helped make this trip possible. A book tour is no joke in terms of planning and execution and I’m so grateful to have received a bit of help along the way! Terra Chips was kind enough to sponsor a leg of the trip and provide us with snacks throughout. Martha Stewart, Plaid, and Fiskars all donated supplies for the workshops. Hotel Tonight put us up in a few cities, and Enterprise was kind enough to help with some car expenses. Thank you all again!

Now on to the fun!

I’ll also be giving away free art prints at every stop that won’t be available anywhere else, so don’t miss out! I’ve teamed up with some pretty amazing stores, so if you already own the book, please come out just to say hello and shop! Bring a friend/everyone you know, or come out and make new friends!
