The Everygirl

March 13, 2013

I recently discovered The Everygirl, have you heard of it? Founded in America by two ladies who met through blogging, The Everygirl is an online resource dedicated to helping shape the creative, career-driven woman to experience a life better lived with features that teach you how to incorporate creativity into your day, provide career motivation and inspire you to become the woman you want to be.

The Everygirl

Alaina Kaczmarski, who has a background in magazine journalism and psychology and Danielle Moss, who spent her twenties working as a nanny and executive assistant but with a degree in sociology, knew that together they could create some magic and The Everygirl is where they seem to be doing it. One part of the site that I love is the Careers section. I’ll highlight just a few of the dozens from their site. Wow, what a gorgeous gathering of inspirational ladies.

I loved the features on textile designer Caitlin Wilson. Isn’t her work space gorgeous? Great color scheme. You can find Caitlin’s fabrics online here. YUMMY!

And of course I loved learning more about super duper stylist Emily Henderson. She has my book in her home too – I always get so excited when people I admire have one of my books on display in their home. I feel like a little kid every time! Here’s a link to Emily’s blog – a must read!

I met AphroChic, also known as Jeanine Hays, on my book tour in 2011 and adored her – she’s such a lovely lady so it was especially nice seeing her profiled here and my book on her bookcase. :)

The great feature about Megan Gonzalez of Mae Mae Paperie was also an inspiration to me.

I also loved learning more about a favorite paper designer, Anna Bond of Rifle Paper Co.

Another part of the site that I find super valuable and unique is their job postings page. At first, I thought this was only for jobs that The Everygirl was hiring for to work with them but nope, it’s a job board for all sorts of creative companies. I like that a lot!

I heart The Everygirl, great site!

    I absolutely ADORE The Everygirl!! I have been a fan since they started just about a year ago (They just celebrated their 1 year anniversary!)

    I will be included in their career features sometime coming up in the next month or two, and I feel SO SO honored to keep company with such amazing, talented and well rounded women. It’s amazing and humbling at the same time….!

    Chicago represent!

    Happy to see The Everygirl featured! They have a great concept for a blog and hope they keep going. I’m a relatively new reader but I’ve enjoyed what I’ve seen so far and got to go to their anniversary party at West Elm in Lincoln Park, which was fun!

    Thanks for sharing, I’ll visit this site, sounds very interesting, thanks !

    Love this post, everything from Emily’s miniatures under glass to Caitlin’s bold prints. When I visit your site, I feel as though, in my later 50’s, I’m a generation late for the creative movement of these younger women. My career, choice as a as a teacher (while I don’t regret it), was one of the few options that I felt available to me. Had I been a generation later – I think this would have been very different. I have let my creative juices flow in retirement – but would have loved to have been been a part of what is happening with these young women!
