With Valentine's Day fast approaching, this issue has several different gift ideas for the one you love as well as a creative card idea using corrugated cardboard as a stamping tool.
Martha invites us to a hearty breakfast in her column "From My Home to Yours." In the article, you'll find recipes for hearty waffles, healthy granola, a delicious frittata and much more.
Several articles were of particular interest to me. I recently stocked up on baking yeast and the article "Fresh From the Oven" is the perfect inspiration to use one simple recipe to bake four types of bread. It's been a long time since I've baked bread, so I'm anxious to try this recipe with it's variations.
I love cake stands and have many of them displayed on a shelf in the kitchen. The collector of these footed beauties will appreciate the article, "They Take the Cake." which looks at the cakestand in a whole new light.
Kevin Sharkey continues his monthly look at his apartment make-over in column "Home Design." This month, Kevin takes us into his closet where all of his clothing and accessories are neatly stored and organized for easy access. With a closet this size, getting dressed for the day would be a breeze!
I believe one of the most creative people at Martha Stewart Living is Darcy Miller, Editorial Director for Weddings. The ideas and creativity never seem to end and the article "Family: History in the Making." This article takes us inside to a special gallery showing of her creative work in celebrating life's meaningful moments and turning them into charming keepsakes. Darcy calls these keepsakes "scrapboxes." Scrapboxes make a scrapbook page come alive in a beatiful display.
The February issue a good read with a hot cup of tea or a frothy cup of hot chocolate. February and chocolate just seem to go together...
