Holiday 2010

I’m giving away a copy of this amazing magazine!

I am so excited that I was included in the Holiday with Matthew Mead. I still don’t believe I’m in a magazine, let alone one put out by Matthew.  It still hasn’t sunk in.  I really really don’t feel worthy……..I mean I haven’t even ordered my Christmas cards yet.  {{I have a good excuse……my son has been sick for almost 3 weeks…..I don’t think people want a Christmas card photo of him in his Oregon Duck Snuggie on the couch}}

I showed my girlfriends the magazine when they were here for our children’s annual cookie party and they were very impressed.  Which of course made me feel good.

This magazine has thick pages, smells good…….not in a fragrant way, but in a authentic paper way.  It’s full ………chock full of great ideas for the holiday, but things you can carry into the year.  You can incorporate his ideas for all different holidays.  I’m on page 8, number 5.

I’m so proud of one of my earlier features for being an editor! Linda with Restyled Home. I knew she’d go places.  This magazine can only be bought online.  If you don’t have one yet…… must.  This is one you’ll keep forever.  You won’t find this in the recycling bin.  I’d love to give away a copy to one of you!  Just leave a comment here to enter if you’d like to win a copy of this fabulous magazine that has me on page 8. I’ll choose someone on Sunday.  Contest ends 5pm on Sunday. (pacific time)

    Oh,puhleeze,I’m begging for this one! I bought his first Holiday mag when it hit the racks a couple years ago when I was still able to work, and I *still* reference it every season! Absolutely love the man & his ideas& presentation. And to get you in the deal is extraordinary! Does it help if I throw in a pityparty? 😀 just refractured all the ’06 frax in right knee from Avascular Necrosis. This time my kneecap wont stay put so cant get to library to order online even if could afford it, and cell/web wont let me complete purchases. Arghhh! In any event I SO Appreciate the opportunity, all whining aside. ThankYou! -s-
