Behind the Scenes with Elembee Creative

Meet Lisa. Blogger and designer extraordinaire. Owner of the graphic and web design studio Elembee Creative (I’m a huge fan!). I’ve had a chance to get to know Lisa over the last six months as she’s helped me with some things here on vmac+cheese, and also for Vivaleur! And, we have plenty in common because she also decided to make the leap to full time freelancing this year! If you aren’t already following along on her blog, you need to do so immediately. Lisa’s great eye for graphic design will leave you feeling inspired, and I know her punchy color palettes never fail to cheer me up.

Read on to learn more about Lisa, and stay tuned for a little announcement from me, your Behind the Scenes editor, at the very bottom… Read the full post +

Behind the Scenes with French Revolution

Today’s BTS girl is extra special, because in a way, I feel like she’s been part of my blog world since the beginning. You’ve probably seen me reference the fact that vmac+cheese used to be a food blog; well, around the time I started writing, I discovered Kerry, the fabulous blogger behind French Revolution, who was a new food blogger as well. In fact, it’s probably safe to say that Kerry’s blog has been in Google Reader longer than anyone else. Her blog is just amazing. I’m kind of embarrassed I haven’t featured her here already! Her recipes will delight you, her how-to videos will charm you, and no matter what, you will leave her site feeling HUNGRY. Since following her blog from its inception, I’ve loved watching Kerry’s passion for food lead her to gigs with The Huffington Post, Serious Eats, and Daily Candy, among others, and I can guarantee you that a book deal and/or TV show is not far behind (just think, you can say you knew her when…)! Read on to learn more, and bookmark her blog, asap. If you like to eat, you will LOVE. Read the full post +

Behind the Scenes with Marionberry Style

Behind the Scenes is back today with none other than the lovely Marion, from the fab fashion blog Marionberry Style. It’s actually pretty inaccurate to call Marion’s blog just simply a fashion blog — because honestly, it’s so much more! In addition to great outfits, she shares plenty of stories about her life in Denver, and they’re often really hilarious (I mean, case in point: check out the cake her friend recently brought to their monthly book club). I had a chance to Skype with Marion a while back, and I’m pretty sure we’d be fast friends in real life. Judging from her BTS, we have a ton in common! Learn more about her, right after the jump!
