Holiday with Matthew Mead

I've got some exciting news to share!


Yours truly has been invited to submit a holiday decorating idea to Matthew Mead's new book-a-zine, "Holiday with Matthew Mead".
("Book-a-zine" meaning, it's a cross between a book and a magazine.)

Some time after Christmas last year, I had a cool decorating idea that I thought I'd save and blog about next Christmas- but Matthew's book-a-zine might just be the perfect place for me to share it!
(I hope he thinks so!)

Although it won't be available on newsstands, you can order copies of "Holiday" through his website
It'll be released in October of this year, and from what I hear, it's gonna to be chock full of holiday decorating ideas!
(144 pages full of them to be exact!)

Some of my fellow contributors include- Stephanie "Nie Nie" Nielson, Kim from Today's Creative Blog, and Mary Engelbreit.
(Oh how I miss Mary's Home Companion magazine!)

Stay tuned to to see who else is going to be featured- he'll be announcing all of their names over the coming weeks!

Congratulations. I'm glad great things are happening for you. I thought you might like to see the furniture I bought for my family room addition. (The one you did a plan for.) It's all framed and the timber frame beams are in. I can't wait until it's finished.

Exciting! I'm sure this book-a-zine is going to be fabulous. How fun that you've been included to contribute! You've had so many opportunities to get published lately!

Sandra said...

What an honor!

Your time has come, when others are REALLY starting to notice your talents - and I'm not talking about us regular people but those who really have some clout in the design world. How very exciting!

You should congratulate yourself, Layla (and Kevin, of course), for a job well done.
