Martha as "Motha"

The new Martha Stewart Halloween issue
has come out. Here are ten of my
favorite things in this issue.
All photos in this post are taken with my camera of the Martha Stewart Halloween 2011 issue.

As they have done for several years,
they featured Martha herself on the cover.
This year, she is "Motha".

On the inside of the magazine, they show you
how you, too, can be "Motha".

Maybe I'm easily impressed but
I thought the "play" with her name, the make-up and
the outfit were very clever.

Here are my other nine favorite
things in the MS Halloween magazine:

Front porch with mums and pumpkins
I'm buying large mums for my front porch urns on September First!
The summer plants in my urns are crispy critters now.

How to make your own large spider web

Candy apples with witch attached to the stick

Witch's broom treat bags

Ideas for table top display

Antique looking tombstones
This makes me anxious to get out my foam cutter and go to work on large sheets
of insulation foam from Home Depot.

Black added to etched pumpkin for more definition

Hurricane glass added to small pumpkins
Easy and cute but I would have never thought of that.

Yeah! They included the actual clip art for projects
featured in the magazine to just copy!
No downloading required.
The clip art you would need in order to make the projects in the magazine are full-sized and ready to be printed.
Even the moth wings for the "Motha" eyes are made as clip art.

The magazine has many more ideas and projects.
In my opinion, it is worth the purchase price.

I am SO ready for Fall to be here.
Fall magazines just seem to be jumping 
into my shopping cart.
