Catching the HOLIDAY spirit...

My emotions are bubbling over..

As the final content of the magazine is decided and we make room for our limited number of ads, I must make the decisions about what stays, what gets cut, and how to order all of the fabulous content. It's good stress, though, because all of the debate is in my own head and with myself. I really want to keep everything because  it is all so beautiful and fresh and exactly what I want to share and how I want to share it. But being an editor means editing, and having the wisdom and ability to make things stronger and tighter and more reasonable by whittling down some of the stories so that the best of everything rises to the surface.

Now that we are 98 % complete and the printing will take place within the next two weeks, we will be showing more of the magazine then we ever have before. Because it is so visual, it is very hard for me to truly describe. There is lots of red and lots of green but re-imagined in a way that makes everything so much more unexpected. You will see wintry palettes, my home, Linda's home, the prize winning home entry and the studio dressed up to entertain friends. You will also see lots of unexpected "studies" of beautiful things and so much more. It is so exciting - it is honestly like having ten issues of your favorite magazine all rolled into one. Above is a glimpse of a red and white story that you will find in the pages of HOLIDAY; but believe me, this just skims the surface. See for yourself in a few weeks. HOLIDAY will arrive in your mailbox just as you are packing up your Halloween decorations. Just in time to plan your holiday decor!
 
Best,
Matthew
