Why, hello there.
Wow. This feels amazing/scary.
After months working on it, I’m excited to share with you the new A Pair & A Spare. Improvements were long overdue, from the need to be more mobile friendly, have bigger text and create easier ways for you to discover new and old content. Lots of these things came out of the last survey so for those of you that got involved thank you.
Over time this site has evolved from purely fashion DIYs to creative how-to’s across the board, from redecorating your house (more on that soon!) to putting together the perfect cheese platter. These days our mantra in the studio is all about ‘Creativity Worth Sharing’. Essentially ideas and advice that make creativity easy … in crafting, decorating, travel or your kitchen. And, let’s be honest, the old site was letting us down. What we wanted was a new design that had lots of options for how to display tutorials and show DIY/travel content in an interesting way, annnnnnddd one that made it easier to find/discover what you need. For that reason we’ve added lots of new functions like sorting by DIY materials and destinations and a bigger interiors section.
There are quite a few changes (and yes, change can be scary) but know that we considered every single update for hours on end, with our end goal being to make it easy for you to feel (and get) more creative when you stop by. All in all I’m so excited for the next phase of this blog, the same but a) more and b) better. Which is in fact, pretty much what you told us you wanted. 🙂
I’m hoping you’ll enjoy coming on the next stage of this journey with us!
On to the fun part! To celebrate the launch of the new site, we’re giving away 4 pairs of The Simple Sandal to one lucky reader. That’s right, you get all the colours for yourself including tan, nude, black and leopard. You’ll have a style to match every single outfit you own! Essentially this is our way to say a big thank you for being part of this community – and encouraging creativity in everything that we do.
