New Year, New Site, Free Stuff!

I've got the blog up and running again! You'll notice I've added a few links and organization around the site. I want to offer more to the people and readers who visit, such as easier navigation to past projects, direction to my other projects (like my etsy store, and blog design), as well as easy-to-find DIY tuturials and freebies! I will be adding more of the last two as we go!

I would like suggestions on what YOU would like to see here too!
What kinds of projects do you like to see, or would like to know how to do yourself?
What are some of your favorite blogs to visit and why?
What might be some other suggestions you have on the direction I take this blog and my crafting in the new year?

Readers who post a comment in this thread with at least one valid suggestion will be entered to win one of these famous Nest signs! I will randomly draw a name after one week, so be sure to add your comment before Jan 13th to get your chance to win. And thank you in advance for your thoughts!

  1. I love the new look! It looks fabulous! The site links on the side are just darling!

    Your crafts are great, although I'm not sure about the new fad but I'm not a crafter so, to each their own.

    I can't imagine how much time you spent on re-creating this site! Wow! Looks great!

  2. I love your new look.

    I'd love to see a step-by-step to paint words. I see your signs and think how lovely it would be on walls, doors, etc. I'd love to see how you do it.

  3. I really like the new look!!!

    I agree that step-by-steps are fantastic, especially of easy crafts that even beginners could try. I loved your electronics caddy.

    I also would love to get ideas for scrapbooking layouts and maybe just a couple of tricks for digital scrapbooking (although I know you're trying to make money from it...).

  4. This is great!!! Exactly what I had hoped for, thank you so far everyone! And please don't be afraid to critique also, I'm looking to improve!

    J(#1) - which do you mean by fad? Perhaps the digital stuff? I can undertand that!

    Kim- great idea for the lettering! I'll definitely put that one up.

    Liz -LMAO about the toilet! HAH! I'll spend more time on my images too from now on.

    Allison - I definitely don't mind sharing tips for digital scrapbooking, that's how I learned myself! I also offer my services to those who can't or don't want to do it on their own, but I certainly don't mind sharing!

  7. OMG Jan it looks great!!! I love the new layout. I don't have much to add to everyone else, but I did notice that the "meet jan" tab at the top doesn't work. Other than that - you rock :-)

  8. I love love love your site. I am not a crafter but your step by step directions usually have me convinved that I could try something myself, and have great results! The paint words are my favorite on this site, so I agree with the others- step by step please! Also, I love the iPod covers- but I never saw one for an iPhone....maybe I missed it. Either way, keep up the great work!

  9. For some reason, I have never visited your site. I have to say that I love it! The design is simple to navigate, but really attractive, and I love the colors! I think it would be cool if you had a guest crafter blog every once in a while. I'm not sure if you've done this in the past, so forgive me if you have! I'm adding your site to my Google Reader right now. ;-)

  10. I am so excited to see your new site. I bought a "our nest" sign from you in blue awhile back ago and everyone comments and asks me where i got the sign. Now i can send them to your site. Congrats, it looks really nice!

  11. I love your blog! So much fun stuff to check out. The only suggestion I can think of is to maybe have more of a breakdown for your crafts. Like on the side under crafts there is a link for all, birds, ipods and stuffies. Maybe there could be more categories?

  19. I love your site! I'm not much of a crafter, but I love how your tutorials are very reader friendly.

  20. I found this site through another website (I think it was casasugar) that had linked to your post about the desk you made yourself. (which is amazing!!)

    I love your craft ideas. Your projects always come out so nice.

    Keep up the great work!

  21. My favorite post of yours continues to be the crafting desk. Such a good idea and customized fory your needs. I love the new look, especially how clean it is, some blogs have patterns on their posting areas that make it tough to read. I want to see more tutorials of course, and tips on painting would be appreciated although I see you are selling the signs so maybe some basic tips like what kind of brushes to use because I have always been very interested in painting techniques.

  22. I LOVE the new look. I think it is fantastic and I am so jealous of your talent! The tabs at the top are the coolest part.
