Win a printed copy of Simply Shabbilicious

There’s something very special about turning the pages of a favourite magazine. . .

Savouring every image and every delectable detail. . .

And being able to revisit those inspiration pages, time after time.


Shabby Art Boutique- Simply Shabbilcious Magazine, Issue 3, 2013 - 500

Read magazine HERE

I guess it is even more exciting when that magazine is one of your own that you have laboured over for many months. There was definitely an air of excitement in our house when my printed copies arrived in the mail last week and since then the Simply Shabbilicious mag has been popping up all over the place… beside my bed for some bedtime reading. . . in the kitchen for coffee with friends… room to room it went. . . and now hanging out as a coffee table glossy.

It would be selfish of me to keep all the copies of Simply Shabbilicious for myself, so I’m giving a printed copy away to one of my Simply Shabbilicious readers.

  20. Deborah Verrall says:

    I adore your magazine and would love to see Shabby taken from indoors to outdoors. How to shabby up a garden or patio and make it pretty! I am going to start by drilling holes in the base of some old ewers (Bathing jugs) and planting pretty flowers and herbs in them and then they can go on display in my patio. Also intend on doing a fairy garden so i would love to see that in your magazine.
    Blessings to you,
    Debbie x

  21. Would love to win a copy, thanks for the chance!!

  22. In love with your magazine…every page soothes my soul…! I enjoy creating my own “Shabby-ness” so crafty tutorials, re-purposing, and color pallets for the Shabby look are always welcome. Thank you for the chance to win a copy of your beautiful magazine <3,

  23. suzanne stephenson says:

    I would love to win a glad to have found your page…will pass book around if I win it..looking sooooo forward to see it..lots of sales this weekend in central Iowa../ great vendors pf that shabby look we are soooo in luv with..will keep looking….thanks..enjoy your day..stay out of the sun..

  24. Oh Kerryanne, the chance to win a ‘real life’ copy of your magazine would be fabulous – I could sit and drool over the pages instead of over my keyboard LOL

    Perhaps a comparison article i.e. how different it is creating a shabby chic feel in a modern built home to that in an older or more vintage type home. I’m sure each type of home has it’s own difficulties in creating the right feel & look.

  25. Bec Clarke says:

    Oh my goodness it’s so beautiful, I was going to say shabby on a budget but someone else already said that.

  29. karen hillman says:

    Love your magazine – would love a free copy same as everyone else 🙂
    I would like to see more ideas using an old armoire for a kitchen pantry. I am in the process of converting it over,
    but not sure what look I want. – kind of country – french – shabby chic – oh yes Simply Shabbilicious 🙂

  30. I’ve been following your posts from several months now but never wrote any comments. I now have a opportunity to say “something” thanks to your little game.
    So here is my suggestion… Why not adding beautiful romantic gardens in your editions? Most of the shabby bloggers love beautiful gardens, don’t you think?
    Christine (from France ;-))

Thanks so much!

Fingers crossed maybe someday, I too, will be a part of this wonderful group of “blog-awesomeness”!! If I could suggest anything at all to add to the superb content, it may be articles on trending in the design world, photo styling, or blog photo tips. All in all Kudos to you and your team!
