  6. Mathew - I met you years ago when you were promoting one of your books at Junk Bonanza. You made quite an impression on this new designer and vendor at that event... I did purchase your Holiday 2010 issue and I can not tell you how impressed I am on the whole package... the paper quality and the fact you use a local printer is Fabulous! The photography and layout ... and lack of advertisement IS over the top!!!

    Loved every page. I only wish we could find other decorating magazines with the same high standards. I can't wait to see the summer issue.

  12. I love the Halloween Spooktacular book. It's the best Halloween book I've seen in a very long time. WHY is it not available in hardcover! This is a book that I will reference for many seasons to come.
