New Blog Design!

Welcome to the new and improved Repeat Crafter Me! I am so excited to have a new blog design created by the very talented Lindsay of Happy Potamus Designs. Lindsay was so easy to work with, her prices were extremely reasonable and she works quickly! As a fellow graphic designer, I know how exhausting and time consuming it can be to go back and forth with a client. Lindsay always responded promptly and happily and was there to answer all my questions or make any changes I asked for. If you are looking for a major blog re-design or even just a small change, she has many packages to choose from or pick what you need from her A La Carte menu!

I want to point out a couple of really great things about my new design.

First of all, notice the beautiful navigation bar at the top of the page. There are separate tabs for "Crafting, Crocheting, and Crockpoting."
You can now click on each one to see an organized list of my posts related to either Crafts, Crochet projects, and Crock Pot Recipes. There are sub-categories under each so for instance if you are looking for a dessert you can make in the crock pot, you can easily find one!

Second, you may notice I have social icons that link to my Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, and Etsy sites!
I would love for you to follow me on my social networking sites and keep in touch on a daily basis!

Third, I am so excited to tell you that my Etsy shop is now open!!
I will be SLOWLY adding new item to the shop this week but you can see a couple crochet hats that are now available and ready to ship. I have been talking about getting my Etsy shop up and running for a long time so I am more than pleased to be able to say that it is finally here!

Lastly, take a minute to browse some other great features in my sidebar such as the "Popular Posts" section. If you are new to my blog, this is a great place to see a list of my posts that have received the most attention. If you are a fellow blogger and like my blog, feel free to grab my button and display it on your site. Let me know you have done so and I will be sure to return the favor! I will also be welcoming sponsorships soon. I am working out pricing and benefits so if you are interested in advertising on my blog feel fee to contact me at RepeatCrafterMe@gmail.com.

Leave me a comment and let me know what you think of the new design!

  4. Laura, you made my day with that comment! Thank You! I am following you as well and would love to hear more about how you use your Cricut. I am having issues figuring mine out. Looking forward to getting to know you!

    Nichole, I am sure you are anxious for your blog design but it is worth the wait! I look forward to seeing how yours turns out! Following you as well :o)

  5. Sarah, thank you so much for your great patterns. I am a beginner and have made my 7 month grandson 6 hats. It sure fills my time over the winter months and have found so much enjoyment making these. I will take some pics for you. I am from Nova Scotia, Canada but spend my winters in Sarasota, Florida. Again, thanks for sharing your patterns and can't wait for the next one.
