A Kick-off to Summer Give-away!!

We have decided to celebrate the first day of summer and host a great give-away!

Do you remember this necklace (above and below), designed for NieNie by the talented Crystal B., one of our favorite sponsors?

Well, Crystal has graciously offered to make one for our HOLIDAY readers and we have decided to throw in a free copy of the magazine, too! So how's that for a Monday?

Also, please be sure to check out our Holiday home tour contest, where you can enter YOUR home for the chance to be chosen as a feature in the upcoming HOLIDAY with Matthew Mead.

And another reminder: You have less than four months left to pre-order your copy of the magazine (which will NOT be sold in stores; you must order your copy here). In addition, if you want to purchase an ad in the magazine, there are several ways to do so (and many price points!). Spaces are limited, so hurry to reserve your ad spot now (fyi: Holiday heads to the printers in September!).

And finally, we have new ad space in our sidebar available, so if you are interested in advertising your blog or small business right here, then follow the ADVERTISE link in our navigation bar or email us for rates. Spaces are limited, so please act quickly!

Now, be sure to leave a comment to enter our contest! And you know the deal: if you blog, tweet or Facebook about our contest, then you deserve a second entry. Just be sure to let us know if you did!

Happy Summer!!!

  3. what a great idea! i have been meaning to order my copy of the magazine and have long admired the necklace, so this is a contest i couldn't resist! stephanie is such an inspiration to so many...i am a young mother who lives with a chronic disease...i'm actually going into my 4th week in the hospital right now, which unfortunately is something we are very used to in our household, much like the Nielson's...and while these are certainly less than ideal circumstances, we have been able to see that you can find blessing in any situation when you have the right mindset. the necklace is such a simple, beautiful reminder to look for the good...
    okay...sorry for rambling! i'm in texas where we have already had multiple 100+ degree days, so i love thinking about christmas!

  6. It has been a tough year. My favorite hymn is "It is Well". I recently set under the stars and listened to that song over and over until I BELIEVED it. Your necklace is a great reminder that everything will be ok as we travel the path we have been led to. I am on your page because of my cousin, who commented above, Christine Pinson (I saw on her Facebook). She is modest. She has spent more time in the hospital than not. Her baby boy turned 3 yesterday and she didn't get to be home celebrating with him. In a situation that would break most people, Christine falls to her knees and prays and continues to stay positive knowing that .... All is Well.

  36. That necklace is beautiful! My daughter is severely disabled and recently starting having uncontrolled seizures. When people ask me how she's doing, I try to respond with something positive.
