It’s a busy time of year for Martha Stewart. According to the “Martha’s Calendar” section in the glitter-deckled December issue of Martha Stewart Living, Stewart spent the weekend picking the perfect evergreen, trimming the tree, and checking the water level daily (Saturday) and decorating the house with tinsel trees and hanging stockings before preparing batches of cookie dough to freeze (Sunday). Today, it’s onto holiday cards, and if we know Martha, there’s calligraphy involved (and might we suggest the spooky yet festively crimson Gary Cooper stamps?). But we digress. Somewhere between assembling holiday-themed croquembouches and sprucing up gift tags with tiny pinecones, Stewart’s company has found time to select a new editor for Living. It’s Vanessa Holden, who has been promoted from her role as editor-in-chief of Martha Stewart Weddings. Katie Hatch, style director of Weddings, will take the helm of the matrimonial magazine. Meanwhile, the tireless Gael Towey, who has been filling in as Living‘s acting editor-in-chief since the January departure of Michael Boodro, has been named editorial director of Martha Stewart Living Omnimedia.
