You may have noticed that OCH has been offline for awhile. I came to the conclusion in January that it was time for a change both esthetically and in what I share here.
What started purely as a home improvement story has slow changed incorporating crafts, recipes and stories about our daily lives. This has been a welcome change and I realized it was time to make this shift more intentional with a complete rebranding. I hope you will love this change as much as I do.
The first thing you will notice is the brand new look of the website. I wanted something that looked more like our home and just have a bit more personality.
You will notice my navigation has changed to reflect the type of posts I plan to share. I hope to spend a little time each week writing about projects around the house, my creative pursuits, what inspires me, what I am making in the kitchen, our life and of course cats.
Each category page has a brand new grid format that’s super easy to scan and locate old projects.
Under the life & cats page you will find our wedding archive. Last year was completely dominated by the wedding and it took a lot out of me in the best way. I put my all in and I still have a few stories to tell about that process because I believe it was transformative for me in a bunch of interesting ways. I want to remember that, so I will share it here. I also want to write about our wedding budget since I feel money is often glossed over and I know for me – I liked to learn the details about what others did.
I have also redesigned my email newsletter. I used to have a subscription email that went out immediately after I posted something new. I’ve decided to switch this up into a weekly formatted digest on Friday afternoons. I will be including some original content in the newsletter as well, so if you are interested you can sign up in the sidebar.
I will also relaunched my design business Andrea Zoe Designs. My website will launch later this month. I will be offering webpage design plus wedding stationery and prints. Expect a full write up and shiny new button in the sidebar soon.
Overall, I am very excited by this redesign. I hope it will be a better representation of me.
In celebration of the relaunch, I will be posting everyday this week. So enjoy your St. Patty’s Day and I’ll see you back here tomorrow.
Thanks for reading,
