Jenny and I were lucky enough to shoot SNUG HARBOR FARM in Kennebunk, Maine last week while working on a summer issue. Greenhouse after greenhouse of unbelievable plants and topiaries, beautiful storybook out-buildings, a yard of geese, and these precious miniature horses. I had a blast shooting all kinds of great container gardens and thoroughly enjoyed the gift shop... I am grateful for such a great job.
Here at HOLIDAY we have been very fortunate to be on the receiving end of so many kind comments, emails, and support from our readers and the online community, including our fabulous blog panel. We have also been extremely fortunate to have well-known designers and design bloggers like Holly from Decor8, Mary Engelbreit, Dee Foust, and Debbie Dusenberry from Curious Sofa help spread the word about our new publication. At times, though, we have found it challenging to reach a REAL PERSON moderating the large design blogs to ask them to spread the word about HOLIDAY with Matthew Mead. I know you all have experienced some degree of not being able to contact the real writer, designer, or blogger that you admire, for various reasons. Don't you just hate that? I have always strived to be reachable to readers. I visit your blogs, I love being asked to be friends on Facebook, Twitter, and believe it or not, if you call me at my studio, I WILL answer the phone and talk to you and listen to your feedback and suggestions. And that is because I believe in supporting one another and being REAL, despite the "virtual challenges" of meeting via the Internet or through the pages of a magazine. So, because of the challenges that we have faced in publicizing HOLIDAY, as a self-published magazine...I am asking for your help. We have taken on this route as a whole new way to deliver NEW ideas (with limited ads) and distribute the printed material - so assistance from all places is sooo very necessary! We would love to ask your help in being our town criers. We would be thrilled if you wish to help spread the word about HOLIDAY in any way you like (and we know so many of you have already helped us in that regard). And, as I mentioned, I am available to anyone: bloggers, radio shows, newspaper reporters, weekly shopper's news organizations, newsletters.... anyone who wants to reach out and help spread the word about HOLIDAY with Matthew Mead. If you want to reach me to set up a phone interview please call my studio 603-753- 4185 and we will be happy to set up a chat. Also, we will provide any and all images needed to accompany your stories. We are very happy to have such a global reach via our blog and are beyond thrilled to spread the word to and with everyone. We believe it is a large reach to a small and stylish world.
Holiday with Matthew Mead is sold only via this website.
