Announcing...

Seasonal Delights, Autumn 2007

Seasonal Delights

Seasonal Delights is a quarterly online magazine for young ladies and their mothers, but can be enjoyed by anyone who loves celebrating the joys of each passing season! It is created and produced by my husband and me.

The first issue is 20 full-color pages filled with crafts, recipes, sewing projects, and many other Autumn-themed activities.

SD Autumn 2007, page 8SD Autumn 2007, page 12

In my "know nothing about computers" brain I thought whoever wanted to receive a copy of the magazine would email me, and then I would email them back with the file. Phillip explained some of the problems with this plan. ;0)

1. Some people can't receive 5 megabyte emails.

2. When you email me your request, you would then have to wait for me to send it. What if I was away for the day?

3. Spam!

To avoid these problems we set up a separate website and email address. Just come visit me at the new site!

Don't worry, I'm not going anywhere. There is no place like home will continue as usual!

Kimberly said...

VERY NICE! I've been checking in to see your announcement. Congratulations! I'm going to pop on over there right now. I'm so excited. What perfect timing as I was just about to change the dining room decor to Autumn to go with my new Cinnamon Spice Pumpkin Candle my mom gave me today along with the cutest Autumn cookie cutters.

Christine said...

Kelli,
What a big thank you I send to you. There are other mother/daughter things out there but this one is by far the best resource I have seen. You have put together a top notch product. Thank you, I cannot wait to get started with fall decorating. I live in Alaska so we already have the fall colors showing through.

You changed the design of the blogsite. I loved the old one, but this one is sooo beautiful. You did a great job. I look forward reading more of the great stuff you post.
Hope you are having a good week.

Mrs Pea said...

Kelli - it is beautiful, as I would expect from you. I've posted about it on my blog too - I so enjoyed reading it. Thank you to you and Philip. In the UK we don't go in for all the seasonal decorating and projects in the same way, and it is so inspiring to me.

Brenda@CoffeeTeaBooks said...

I have printed it out and I LOVE it.

My post today is all about your new e-magazine and a link back to here.

Cindy Swanson said...

Hi Kelli...first-time visitor to your blog, and I love it! It's lovely, and so is Seasonal Delights.

I'll definitely be back!

Phillip Winn said...

Yikes! I'm astounded at the response (we'll say more about that tonight over at the sdquarterly.com site), but I'm simply flabbergasted at how many of you are printing this whole thing out in color! Even we haven't done that!

I did just order a test copy through Lulu.com, but it wasn't cheap. Once it arrives, we'll post some pictures and let everybody know whether that's worthwhile. We'll probably also provide information on how to arrange the pages to get a professional-looking result at a print place or copy shop, but those are silly-expensive too.

Thank you, everybody, for the lovely comments. We'll aim for a 24-hour status report tonight.

Karen said...

Congratulations! I'm downloading and printing as we speak. I can't wait to read it.

LBP said...

Beautiful! I have already subscribed and downloaded this beautiful installment!

Thanks so much!

PEA said...

Oh Kelli, how very exciting!!!! I'm on my way there now to check out this new online magazine of yours and Phillip:-) xox

Penless Thoughts said...

Karen, I tried to sign up for your wonderful new magazine and it wouldn't take my input. Can you help me in understanding what I am to put in. Is it my blog site or my e-mail address.

Thanks!! Remember, I'm the same one that had so much trouble with Mr. Linky for my first few Show & Tells!!!! Sorry :o)
Susan

Penless Thoughts said...

Found you via Crystal at biblicalwomanhood, and your strawberry muffins looked so delicious that I ordered your new magazine. I haven’t downloaded it yet, but according to the other comments it sounds just lovely.

Congratulations, it is beautiful and very professional! I would like to subscribe, I'm waiting for the answer to the question Penless Thoughts asked - do I use my present username and password, or make up a new one?

Katherine

Trudi A said...

Wow Kelli, 82 comments congrats. I love your new autumn header. It's very pretty. What progam are you using to make it? I hope you don't mind my asking. Hey, I've started to post on my teaching blog, not much yet but will start to get some valuable info on it. You home school right?

Trudi A said...

I am speechless at the talent you and your husband have demostrated. The free scrip. is too generous. Please send me an email with your snail mail addy so I can send you a token of my appreciation. I just love cones, and have never taken the time to make them. Is it ok if we pass the word on about the publication on your blogs?

Cathy said...

Goodness, Kelli, with such success, I think you should publish your magazine and sell it! :-)

Paula said...

Hi Kelli, tried to subscribe, but keeping tells me that the temporary password given is incorrect. The sample looks absolutely beautiful!!

Blessings,

Trudi A said...

Kelli your publication leaves me speachless. Be prepared to get a lot of attention. It's so professional looking. I mentioned the magazine Homegrown Hospitality and I think it may have started out as a blog too. Your work, writng, photography are just beautiful. I wrote a story with the kiddos today of how sick I am of the heat. They thougth it was loads of fun. I am so ready for Autumn. I am going to try many things you have shared. Tell you hubby congrats. for me also. Thanks so much.
