A Sneak Peek...and our favourite artists!

(created by the fabulous Dee Foust)
Things are pretty wild over at HOLIDAY headquarters. Chocolate (DOVE) is everywhere, props await photographing,  magazine layouts are being added daily to "The Wall" and contributor projects from our favourite artists pour in along with entries for our HOLIDAY home contest (have you entered?).

Matthew has invited some of the most talented and inspiring artists and friends to produce something unique and beautiful for the magazine (in features we cannot yet fully divulge), and he is pushing us all to"think outside of the box" in order to take full advantage of the complete and utter creative freedom self-publishing has afforded us.

Well, when you encourage artists to spread their wings and create something that will wow readers they do just that. Koralee Teichroeb, of Bluebird Notes, whose pretty, little blog is awash in shades of robin`s egg blue and powder pink (~sigh~), sent Matthew a little something that he says I will LOVE; Deb Dusenberry, of Curious Sofa,  delivered greatness, as usual; artist Dee Foust, whose work has been featured in Martha Stewart Weddings, Country Living, Mary Engelbreit`s Home Companion and is an expert on all things holiday, is also on board; Charlotte Lyons, a licensed artist and author - and one of Matthew`s favourites, is creating something wonderful for Holiday; and Lara Harris, the Mead`s personal pet portrait artist (and she is an incredible still-life artist!) is part of a very exciting project along with the talented Tricia Foley among others. Oh, and did I mention Mary Engelbreit is creating something AMAZING for a very special feature?!

So, stay tuned for more sneak peeks of the artistic contributions which will grace the pages of HOLIDAY with Matthew Mead. And by the way, HOLIDAY (which is available for purchase on this website only) will be in your hands by October 31st...in plenty of time for Christmas!

Have you reserved your copy yet?
