Living Locurto & Just Something I Made (2 blogs 2day)

I've got a lil sumpin sumpin that's gonna make you squeal! 2 blogs today!
I recently met Amy with Living Locurto through Twitter........ and while cruising her blog, I found Cathe with Just Something I Made. Both blogs are full of stuff we love. I can't believe I hadn't seen these beauties before. Like I said, these blogs are full........ FULL of little diddies to keep you busy or dreaming forever.

They are both graphic designers.........which totally turns me green..........I just know I was a graphic designer in a past life.........or maybe a bikini model.....

Amy has a ton of great ideas on her site, but what I love the most are her FREE downloads. In addition to all her creativeness on her blog, she also has a design business, Atomic Egg........both this gals have more sites than a baby has rolls. They are busy.....

To keep herself organized, she has a weekly meal plan......with photos!

More free download ideas...........Amy is a fan of home birthday parties.........I can bet you right now that she doesn't have a child born in the winter and she doesn't live in a wintry climate............like me! And her children are still small.........No way was I having ten 10yr old boys in my house. So if you're up for some crazy making.....she has some cute ideas for birthday parties for your little ones.


Cathe had something on her blog that made me fall off my chair. She's got a love for anything vintage......she found this cubie thing below..........what is it anyway? Whatever it is, I love it and I want it.She used pretty scrapbook paper to line each cube. I know! You want to hate her, but you can't.

Another woman with the patience to make these wonderful button bouquets. I tried these........and it wasn't pretty. I love that she added the printed paper flower.She's not selfish with her talents, she shows us how she makes some fab stationary.....If I made something like this, I would probably make a dress out of them and wear it.More great ideas using your printer.She even has fancy tutorials.......this is the one I found on Amy's site. The more detailed tutorial is on both their sites.Another great tutorial.............love how she shows you the steps.

Cathe also has several free downloads. Like this one. A button for your blog.......she has directions and everything for using it. When you visit Cathe's blog, be sure to look around for all her other sites. She's got a ton too. I can barely keep up with my personal blog.......which has become very boring.......

Enjoy everyone.

Amy @ Living Locurto said...

I'm so excited to be featured on your site!!! It's even more fun that both Cathe and I were featured together. She's my graphic design soul mate:-)

Yes, I do have a 6 and 2 year old, so birthdays are only a wee bit crazy, not like a ton of 10 year old boys:-)

Now this gives me more incentive to keep up with my meal planning. I've been known to slack off:-) Anyone reading this, there is also a printable grocery list each week, Yowza!! Great for us busy moms.

Thanks again for the wonderful write up. I really appreciate it!

Thanks for the great links! I have seen Amy's website before (and often!) but never Cathe's. I love it!

Cathe Holden said...

If Amy and I didn't live in different states, we would surely be holding hands, skipping through the neighborhoods singing "look at us!"

This is such a cool feature. It makes me all warm inside to read the nice things you wrote. Thank you very, very much!

Great blog! I just found it recently and I love it! That cubbie thing is a type tray - my parents have one hanging in my old bedroom at home. I think I need it now! Thanks for the great links.

I'm dying over that cubby thing. And I would also have the awesome idea of lining each cubby with scrapbook paper, then I'd get started, get distracted, bored, etc. and it would never ever get done.
