Heart-shaped confections? (Check.) A profusion of pink? (Check.) A feature on chocolate? (Check.) A story on flowers? (Check.) Valentine's Day crafts? (Check.) It may not be the most surprisingly original issue of the year, but February presented by Martha Stewart Living is always a comfort. This year's issue is quite lovely with new takes on old classics: using family photos to make heirloom Valentine's Day gifts; a visit to New York's Polux Fleuriste with instructions on how to make unfussy but glamorous flower arrangements; decadent chocolate cakes; master of embroidery, Stephanie Housley, and her workshop at Coral & Tusk; lessons on garden photography by Marion Brenner; Good Things, delicious pasta, a guide to heart-health, and so much more!
Fans of Martha Stewart's special issue magazines (me! me!) will be really pleased to hear that a brand new special issue will be out on newsstands on February 4th. This one is devoted entirely to cakes and cupcakes, with more than 50 of the most popular and beautiful desserts from the pages of Martha Stewart Living. An iPad version of the special issue will also be available.
