Happy Monday and a GIVEAWAY!

Monday, October 3, 2011


Happy Monday, y'all!  I hope everyone had a fantastic weekend filled with family, friends, football, and other fun autumn activities.

I have a wonderful announcement and a giveaway for my readers!

Matthew Mead's Holiday 2011 expanded issue is ready for purchase via the Holiday website. Please use this link to place your order! While the magazine will also be sold on newsstands, the expanded keepsake issue will be ready ahead of the newsstand issue. The benefits of buying the keepsake issue begins with the fact that it is BIG: it is an expanded issue, with additional pages of beautiful holiday ideas, recipes, and projects, and it arrives directly to your mailbox before the newsstand edition is available.  I am so honored to have been asked to share this exciting news with y'all; you can get your issue early and enjoy so many beautiful and special holiday traditions.

Here is the fun part:

The nice folks at Holiday with Matthew Mead would like to offer you a giveaway prize of a free issue of Holiday with Matthew Mead 2011.

Here is what you need to do to enter:

Sign up for the giveaway simply by sharing the link to the video on your blog, Facebook, or Twitter and leaving a comment letting me know you did.  That's it!  The link for the video is here.

I cannot wait to receive my copy of HOLIDAY 2011!  I have enjoyed every single issue of Holiday, and I am still using my AUTUMN issue to inspire me while I decorate for the season. I know I have shared my love for this magazine on my blog before, especially this post and this one.

Remember, for a chance to win a copy of Matthew’s latest magazine, Holiday with Matthew Mead 2011, simply share this video sneak peek with a friend via a blog post, tweet or Facebook mention, leave me a comment on this post saying that you did, and you will be entered to win! Help Matthew spread the word about this very special expanded keepsake issue of Holiday with Matthew Mead, which will be delivered directly to your mailbox.

And be sure to head over to the holiday website for their launch week of contests which will feature cash prizes, home accessories from Matthew’s new home d├ęcor collection, and free copies of his books and magazines.

I cannot think of a better, more inspiring way to begin the holiday planning process than reading Matthew Mead's Holiday 2011 expanded edition.

Good luck in the drawing!  The contest will close next Monday, October 10th, at 8 AM.

Until next time...
