Posted by

The December issue of Living hit the stands this week! It's full of tons of great holiday ideas—so many, in fact, that we couldn't choose just one cover. There are THREE covers on each magazine!

  • Beautiful!!! love it, can't wait to recieve the Dec Issue!

  • I love the middle cover. Very different from what you usually see on the newstand with the location and styling of the copy. Love!

  • Will all 3 covers be available all over the country (i.e. in all markets) ?

  • Crafter Comment:

    Yes! I should have specified- all three covers are on one magazine.

  • I love them all! But, I think my favorite is the one with Martha herself on the cover. I love all the sparkle! I'm a sucker for sparkle, what can I say?

    But they're all great and looking forward to seeing it on the newsstands! Great job!
