Deliveries, Downloads, and on-line HOLIDAY Guides.

Dear Friends,

I know the last week has been an exercise in frustration.  I assure you that your issues are out in the mail system and were mailed last week.  For some reason, case orders were delivered earlier because of the way flat-rate shipping boxes work.  So please, rest assured, that any day now your copy will be in your hands.

In the meantime, we would like to talk a bit about the online companion pieces designed to make using HOLIDAY easy and fun.  We have several exciting features that will provide templates, recipes, sources and even things to purchase right from the pages of the magazine.

FREE, FREE, FREE... all the online features are free for the taking and will be a great start to making many of the projects.

You will find:

SOURCES... with live direct links where possible so you can be directly connected to all the great items we used.
RECIPES... many of our stories have what we call "run over" recipes.
We have compiled them all in one easy pdf download so you can print them and keep them with the magazine.
TEMPLATES AND DOWNLOADS... all the information and art to give you a head start on many of the projects. Remember, for finished paper projects, use double-sided matte brochure paper which you can find at STAPLES or an office supply store.
ACCESSORIES TO BUY... here you will find prints for sale like our holiday subway sign and JOY TO THE WORLD print as well as signed copies of ENTERTAINING SIMPLE and links to buy some of the handcrafted ornaments used throughout the magazine.


Sign on to HOLIDAY WITH MATTHEW MEAD.  Go to the navigation bar directly below our HOLIDAY banner image. Click on TEMPLATES AND DOWNLOADS for a complete list of on-line services.  Select what you are looking for and you will arrive at MATTHEWMEADSTYLE.COM which will have a listing in the left menu side-bar for all of the FREE templates, FREE downloads, FREE recipes and of course our very FAVORITE SOURCES. For a direct list of the sources for many of the beautiful things you will see in the pages of HOLIDAY, and for the websites of those who contributed projects, click on the PROJECTS AND SOURCES tab also found in the navigation bar.

We hope you find these on-line services helpful in all of your HOLIDAY preparations and we hope to hear from you soon that you are happily enjoying the issue!
