Beaux Mondes Design's 1st Give-A-Way

(The little American)

Over the last couple of years or so, many of us have learned about our favorite periodicals closing shop. One of the main reasons attributed to their impending demise is the decline in advertising sponsors. Crain's New York Business reported 367 magazines shut down in 2009. Many of our favorite design bloggers shared their great disappointment over these losses.

In a small effort to support my favorite magazines (okay, and to promote my blog too) I would like to give my followers the chance to win subscriptions to their favorite magazines from the selections provided above. I will randomly select 3 lucky followers to win one of the following gifts:

1st prize: win two twenty four month subscriptions of your choice from the list
2nd prize: win two twelve month subscriptions of your choice from the list
3rd prize: win one twelve subscription of your choice from the list

Here's how to enter:

1) Simply click on the "follow" button on the sidebar to publicly follow Beaux Mondes Designs.

2) Leave a comment and include your blog name or your first name only along with your 2 magazine choices. (If you already publicly follow my blog, then all you need to do is leave a comment)

The last date to enter is 8pm Pacific time July 31,2010.

The winners will be announced via a video footage of the actual drawing of the 3 names pulled by avid magazine supporter, The Little American (first photo above), on August 6, 2010.
The lucky winners will be contacted the following day to arrange and confirm subscription(s) and estimated(if available) start of shipping date on their first issue(s).

As always, thank you visiting the blog and for your kind words of support.

Hi Julio,
As you know, I'm a follower (and a loyal one too!). I would love Country Living and Better Homes! If I don't win, it will still be fun watching your Little American pull the winners out of the hat! He is too cute!

Hi Julio,

Thank you so much for the lovely comment you left for me today. I'm so glad I popped over to thank you. I had missed the adorable photo of The Little American you posted for the 4th.

This is a very generous giveaway and a great way of supporting magazines(okay, as you promote your beautiful blog!).

Very best regards,

Hello Julio,

I'm a brand new follower and so happy to have found your fabulously inspiring blog! I would love House Beautiful and Coastal Living subscriptions. There's nothing like the tangibility of these inspiring publications. Thanks, and have a wonderful rest of July!

Best Regards,
The Pink Washingtoniette

I love your blog as much as I love TRADITIONAL HOME, HOUSE BEAUTIFUL and VERANDA. Yours is the first give away I've entered. I'm all a twitter!

I meant, all in a tither! Oh, contemporary society creeps in on me sometimes........

Just the impetus I needed to click on the "follow your blog" button, except for the fact that I never miss a day without checking in anyway. I don't have a blog, but since you are making it "reasonable" and not having to jump through hoops, I'd like to enter your give-a-way. I would love to have MS Living and Traditional Home. Thanks for the opportunity to compete. Jackie

What a great idea! I was surprised not to find my name on your follower list. I always thought I was a follower. Well, now I definitely am. What a great idea for a give away. Some of them I am already subscribing to but I would love to get Victoria and House Beautiful or Elle Decor if I won. Your Little American is such a cutie! ..Chtistine

Great Idea. My 2 favorite scrapbook magazines both went under. I would love Victoria, now that it has come back with a new publisher and Southern Living, even though I live in the West.

I'm just starting up my blog and branching out my "Exploration"... Wow, such fun with SO many wonderful people all having passions for the same connecting joys in life as Moi! How wonderful life is!!! I would love to have you check out my website to peek at what I do, and then I "NEED" attendance on my blog Conghaile Cottage... I'm "BRAND NEW" so give me a few days to get going but I promise you won't be disappointed! I would also LOVE,LOVE,LOVE these magazines (Victoria, and Martha Stewart Living), so please enter me...
Thank you, Donna

I too am saddened by the decline in all the great magazines. I especially love House Beautiful and Veranda. I am still awed by your garden tablescape a few weeks ago. I became a follower immediately.
