Having once met Elsie at a Los Angeles scrapbook convention, I have always admired her work. So when I found out she wrote a book with Emma Chapman, I had to check it out! Both Emma and Elsie have the blog A Beautiful Mess, that if you get a chance to look at, you will be filled with amazing creative spirit!

The book, A Beautiful Mess, Happy Handmade Home, Painting, Crafting, and Decorating a Cheerful More Inspiring Space, delivers their unique style for you to pour over! It’s divided by titles of spaces in a home….living room, play spaces, outdoor spaces, etc. You will find something to create for each part of you home.

But what inspired me most about this book were the quick easy sections on hosting themes parties…I love this! For example, the chapter titled, Celebrate, Birthday Cocktail Party. This included a yummy drink recipe and then several ideas with pictures for inspiration.

I was surprised by how thick and sturdy the book was too…the pictures are all in color and the pages are thick quality, making it easy to turn to the next bit of genius!

This will be a goto book for me when getting inspiration for our house, future parties and simply creating! You will be thrilled too!

I received this book from Blogging for Books for this review.
