Holiday with Matthew Mead – News

Holiday Matthew Mead

I’m very excited to announce that you’ll see me and my designs in a magazine this fall!

I am a contributor to the 2011 issue of Holiday with Matthew Mead. HOLIDAY 2011 will be in stores at the end of October throughout North America and Canada!

Matthew describes it as: “A super-sized issue with lots of colorful projects that will make your holiday season filled with the best decor, gift ideas, and delicious foods to make every moment of the season special.”

When Matthew contacted me about contributing, I was beyond excited!

He was actually going to fly to my house to help me and take all of the photos for the magazine. Well, as much as I would LOVE to meet him, that freaked me out because I’ve been traveling constantly this summer and my house is a major wreck. I couldn’t imagine someone as amazing as Matthew seeing my cobwebs! ha. Well, I could just clean it, but that would take too long, plus I have to leave town again and he had a deadline. So lucky for me, he agreed to let me take my own photos! So bonus… I not only get my designs published, but my photography as well. (no pressure right??)

I got to see some sample spreads of the magazine and believe me, it’s going to be AMAZING! The ideas and photos are absolutely gorgeous. The pressure was on to do something fabulous for sure.

So this weekend I spent 2 days designing, painting, styling and photographing gift and decor ideas for Christmas. It was such a fun time and definitely where my passion lies! I started my career with Fossil where I designed and styled their catalog. This brought back memories of those shoots, but it sure was a LOT more fun doing it with my own products. I think you’ll see more large shoots like this from me again soon. YES, it was that much fun! Enjoy these sneak peaks. I can’t wait to show you everything!!
