My sweet & VERY talented friend, Cathe Holden is here with a guest post today!
Not only is it a guest post, but Cathe wanted to do a giveaway as well!!

Be prepared to be BLOWN AWAY!!

You may remember, Cathe is the one who made Flat TidyMom and took her to Blissdom where she had SO much fun!!
Cathe is also the one who designed my TidyMom logo and banner!

I could go on and on about Cathe, but I’m going to turn this post over to her!

Take it away Cathe………

How exciting to be a guest blogger on TidyMom this week! Cheryl is one of my most favorite people, and even though we’ve never met face to face (with the exception of Flat TidyMom), I am so glad to call her friend. We enjoy corresponding quite often and I am so grateful for this thing called blogging that has brought her into my life.
For my guest post, I want to share a giveway with you! I love vintage, and I love typography (I’m a graphic designer by trade,) so naturally, I adore vintage monograms! So much so that I opened up an Etsy shop offering custom monograms for everyone!
