“Party with Amy Locurto” Product launch at the Craft & Hobby Association Show

I grew up in Oklahoma and moved to the fine state of Texas after college where I met my husband and started a family. With a Fine Arts Degree in Graphic Design, I opened a design firm in 1999 called Atomic Egg. At one point I had well over 40 clients, doing work for each one weekly while trying to raise two small children. Deadlines were tough, clients demanding, life was hectic and sleep was scarce, so I started a blog as a creative outlet to save my sanity. Over the past few years, I have given up ALL clients but one to blog and have never been happier! Sorry if you’re wanting graphic design… the firm is officially closed.

Now I focus on my blogs, product lines, practicing my speaking skills and doing freelance creative work for brands and publications. I love my job!!!

I Heart Faces - Photo Challenges & Photo TipsI also love photography and am co-founder of the popular photography website I Heart Faces. This large photography community for women started back in 2009 and was one of the first websites and events for moms to learn more about their camera.

I am probably just as busy now as I was with my design firm, but I don’t consider it work anymore… it’s a total blast!
