A Tale of Two Amys...!

 I am blessed to have incredibly talented friends who have made beautiful and creative contributions to Holiday with Matthew Mead. In our current issue, we had the happy coincidence of having two Stephanies (well, one Stefanie), two Kates, and two Amys as style contributors.
One of those Amys comes with a wealth of personal experience in the magazine production world:
Amy Powers, of the fabulous online magazine Inspired Ideas.

I was honoured to be invited to contribute a story to Amy's holiday magazine and I chose a story about one of my favourite holiday collectibles: Shiny Brite ornaments!
 You can see more of the magazine in this preview below:

Now, go treat yourself to your own copy of Christmas 2011 Inspired Ideas online magazine. Find it HERE.

Now, because we are not immune to mistakes, typos, and other minor technicalities, we inadvertently misidentified the blog address of our other Amy, the multi-talented Amy Locurto, a graphic designer and stylist who  features original ideas and designs, hundreds of free printables, weekly menu plans, recipes, party ideas and DIY crafts on her popular blog.

 Because we don't want ANY of our readers to miss out on Amy's wonderful website, we encourage you to head on over there today as she unveils the printable holiday tag collection (pictured above) that she created for her story in Holiday with Matthew Mead 2011. Find the printable tags for sale in Amy's shop here.

Many thanks to both Amys for sharing their talents with us and our readers!
