Even though Halloween is still a month away, it’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas…at least around here in the Paper Crafts editorial office! Our November/December issue is now on sale, so if you don’t subscribe and still need to get a copy, click HERE to get one.

Better yet, just subscribe — you’ll save yourself 40% and get the issue in your mailbox before it’s available on the newsstand. A subscription also makes a great gift, and — psssst, don’t tell anyone — Christmas is just around the corner. Hee hee!

We’re so excited about this cover, too. When we choose cards for our cover, they have to have a certain, well, something. Maybe it’s a color combination, or a particular style, or a good representation of the cards throughout the magazine. It’s usually an agonizing process because we always have so many fantastic cards to choose from, and this cover was no exception. It turns out that Rae Barthel (our cute Gallery Idol for 2009) and Kim Hughes (newly minted Paper Crafts Go-to Gal) were the best of the best for this issue, because their cards (TWO from Rae!) are the shining stars of this cover.

We also freshened up our cover layout a bit as well — can you tell what’s different?

Even though it’s Christmas in what we affectionately call “magazine time,” in reality it’s Halloween that’s up next. And we’re reminded of that every week when we have our team meeting, because we have an agenda item called Team Halloween Costume. You know that we take all festive occasions very seriously around here, and Halloween is one of the biggest — so of course it’s a topic in our weekly meeting.

This year we want to do something fun, because we’re a team of 7 women and one man. We’ve thought about cheerleader/football player (with Matt as the cheerleader…) and doctor/nurse (with Matt as the…nurse, of course!). But then we got to thinking that we could get a whole bunch of great ideas by asking our readers to toss in their collective two cents.

So whaddya think? Do you have a great idea for our group Halloween costume this year? Put it in the comments, and if we end up using your idea there will be a special something that comes your way from the Paper Crafts super stash of cool blog prizes.

Merry Hallowistmas to you,
Jennifer

P.S. Did I mention that we take Halloween very seriously? To give you an idea of just how far we take a theme, here’s a picture of us from Halloween 2008.

Are we a groovy bunch of hippies or what?
