Martha's Halloween Handbook

When I was a child - maybe 8 or 9 years old - I lived for Halloween! I planned my costumes with my mother and father months in advance. (My mom would usually make them for my brother and I, since she was aghast at spending money on a pre-made costume that would only be worn once a year. At least this way, there was sentiment involved.)
In adulthood, nothing gets me quite as excited about this Pagan holiday than Martha Stewart, her editors and photographers, and all those wizzards at MSLO who dream up the most magical ideas possible. I have, of course, every single special issue ever released by the publisher and I will have the new one coming out next week too! Below is the amazingly fantastic cover of the Halloween Handbook, a compilation of the best 150 Halloween ideas you could possibly imagine. The issue hits newsstands on August 31rst. (Yes, that's Martha on the cover as the "Spellbinding Sourceress!") Many thanks to the kind people at Martha Stewart Living for the photograph.

That's a gorgeous photo of M. It almost reminds me of her model days. She looks so youthful and mischievious. I'll have to pick it up -- I also love the Halloween issues! They've got the right blend of style and creepiness ;c)

It's already out at the magazine store underground at Hudson's Bay Center at Yonge & Bloor. It's across from the old Le Gourmand. They had 2 copies.

Me want! I hope I manage to get a copy, I managed to get one last year but that was before Borders closed down. Wish me luck! Oh, and Martha does look wonderful!

I picked up my copy this weekend! It's HUGE - definitely one of the thickest (if not THE thickest) Halloween Special Edition MSLO has released. Definitely worth the $9.95 sticker price. Martha's costume is fabulous!
