Good Things Come in Threes!

What's big and glossy and filled with cookies, crafts and glitter? Why, it's the December issue of Martha Stewart Living, which arrived in my mailbox today. It is an utterly beautiful, utterly fantastic, utterly inspiring issue to behold! What's more, the December issue this year comes with a triple cover! (See them all below!) I always suggest to all my friends, whether they're Martha fanatics like me or not, that they get the December issue of Martha Stewart Living. It's like nothing else on the newsstand this time of year.

In the issue, there is everything you'd come to expect from the issue, which is actually very thick this year. In the issue, Martha describes the virtues of artificial trees and shows us some from her collection. Crafts and recipes for Hanukkah and Christmas make up the bulk of the Good Things sections. There are plenty of new cookie recipes, including chewy chocolate raisin cookies I'm dying to try! Try your hand at a Hanukkah menu this year or embark on some no-knit craft projects to create gifts for friends and family. Learn how to wrap everything in a special gift-wrapping section or make a chocolate-chestnut mousse cake.

In the well of the magazine, there is an alphabet of ideas, including a special remembrance by Martha in which she reflects on the quietude of her Bedford farm at winter and the beauty of the snow on the landscape. On newsstands on November 16th!

Martha takes the actual cover.
Martha's crochembouche is featured the second cover.
A pair of glittered bells is on the third cover. (I love how the titles of all three covers are glittered galore!)

By triple cover do you mean that we can buy one or the other? I haven't seen it in stores yet but I bought the Holiday Sweets issue and there was only 2 copies left in the store.


Helene, the issue I got in the mail has three covers in a row - one after the other. It's not clear if every issue on the newsstand will be the same or if there will be three different issues available to buyers. Will have to wait and see!...

My issue arrived yesterday, too! I really enjoyed the article on Martha's collection of faux trees, and the new recipes using citrus zest are wonderful. :-)

Thanks, I can't wait to get it. I've been collecting December issues of many mags for many years but Martha is always my fav.
