It’s a new week and a new look for my blog! I hope you like the new layout (designed by Katelyn Brooke Designs). I wanted it to feel cleaner and be easier for you to find what you’re looking for when you visit. I’ve included a Simple Design Ideas tab that features some popular posts, and there’s (finally) a home tour.
You’ll also see a “my favorites” box on the sidebar. This is a new addition where I’ll feature some of my favorite products and a list of my favorite design blogs.
And finally, I officially made the change from Blogger to WordPress which means I’ll no longer have my emilyaclark.blogspot.com address. Now, you’ll just need to go directly to emilyaclark.com to find me. If you follow my blog via BlogLovin’ or through your blogroll, you’ll need to make that update for my web address so you’ll continue to get updates. Or, if you’d like to receive my posts by email, you can subscribe via the FeedBurner button next to my picture.
Thanks for sticking with me through the changes.

I really love your blog and I like that you now have a date that I can find, the new picture is really pretty of you and over all looks great.
My only problem is the text is so faint it’s really, really hard to read ( I’m having a hard time proofing this because the comment box text is even lighter than the post text).
White on light grey boxes is also hard to read.

Welcome to wordpress! Yeah! It’s a ton of work switching over, but it looks great. Hugs, Amy

great looking though!

I am LOOVING the new changes!!!! :D
I have to agree about the text – I actually can’t see what I’m typing it’s so light!

Your new site look great, Emily and your home tour is fabulous! Beautiful pics!! :)
Your new picture is beautiful! I agree, you can barely see the light gray text.
I’m a committed follower and love your blog, your family and your style!
Love the new look. Don’t really know why but I love that you are dating your blogs now.

Hey you all, thanks for the feedback on the comment text being too light as you’re typing. I do see what you mean and will see if that’s a change that can be made.
Beautiful redesign! Much cleaner, and a bit more sophisticated. Loving it.
Tracy Laverty says
What a beautiful clean look to your new site. Also a great picture of you.
I love your blog.!! It is one of my favorites. Just wish the print was a bit darker.
Emily, congratulations!! I love the home tour!! Your picture is great. I love the new header too although as soon as I opened your blog my eyes went to the ad on the very top first. I had to look for your header.Maybe because that is much more contrasting to the white than the header and larger too. The moment I scroll down and cover the ad it’s all very calm, serene, sophisticated and gorgeous!
Gray Maher says
I am so impressed and can finally comment! It looks super.
