At the very top of the site you'll see links to Everyday Elsie + Everyday Emma. These are our new personal blogs. Emma formerly had a blog called Food Coma, which she has moved to this new space. My new blog will be a photo journal of my personal life. We've had lots of talks for the past six months about our desires to share both informative articles and just-for-fun content. This is our solution and we're so excited about it! These blogs will be a part of the A Beautiful Mess network, since they are all linked together, but they have seperate feeds. We are really looking forward to sharing more everyday life over there and we hope you enjoy them!
The colorful category tabs under our banner will take you to our archive galleries. If you click on each one you'll see our favorite projects organized there. We blog often so this is one way to help you find your favorite past articles at a glance, or discover things you missed!
Next you'll see a project slide show. You can click the arrows and scroll through our favorite articles from the past week or two. This is a new way for us to highlight our favorite content.
The photos are larger (yay!) and the sidebars are more simple. We spend so much of our efforts on our photography, that it only made sense to choose a design that highlights it. We hope that you find the new site fresh and easy to navigate.
One last major update… Emma and I are now officially partners! I invited her to become a co-author in January and I have to say, it's one of the best choices I've ever made. She's a wonderful partner and she is incredibly passionate about making this site an inspiring place. We have big plans for this site… It's going to be a wonderful year!
Thanks so much for your kind words about the new look! We are really thankful for your support and we look forward to sharing this next season with you. Love, Elsie
