Our Give-away Winner

Today marks the end of a big week at Holiday headquarters with a crazy shooting schedule of fabulous Holiday features, and the next month will hold the same hectic pace. We are in a race to finish production, which means lots of shooting, styling, baking, cooking, writing, designing, wrapping, and even a bit of travel. Sounds like the regular build-up to the holidays, doesn't it?

HOLIDAY with Matthew Mead goes to the presses in September and then will be wrapped up and sent to all of you by the end of October. Which is perfect, isn't it, because we all know that most of us start thinking of Christmas the minute the pumpkins and ghosts are packed away!

 Now it is time to announce our give-away winner of TheWhitehurst Company Christmas nutcracker. We loved reading about your best (and worst) gifts received and are happy to announce that Mandie of Whispering Christmas Dreams is the lucky winner of our draw. 
Below is Mandie's Christmas gift memory:

"The best gift I have ever gotten is from my mom. It was just her and I and she couldn't afford to buy presents. She was upset at work and one of her friends asked what was wrong. She explained everything and the next week she(her friend) brought her a beautiful clown that she had made with pink velvet. She gave it to my mom to give to me for Christmas. My mom wrapped it up and put it under the tree. Christmas morning I opened it and couldn't believe how beautiful it was. My mom explained how special it was and that it was homemade and that clown sat on a shelf in my room for years. Priceless!"

Congratulations, Mandie! Please email us with your full  name and mailing adress and your prize will be shipped out soon.
