In the Summer of 2007 Elsie started A Beautiful Mess as a just-for-fun blog. Little by little, creating articles became her passion. In early 2010 Emma started contributing ideas and recipes to A Beautiful Mess. After working together for a year, Elsie invited Emma to become a co-author of A Beautiful Mess. Shortly after they got their first book deal.
