Behind the scenes: Scouting stories for 2012

Mike Sell's Christmas tree
York interior designer Mike Sell shared this photo of his Christmas tree, which features many German ornaments from The Christmas Haus in New Oxford.

As the editor of Smart magazine, I exist in a time warp.

We sent the holiday 2011 issue on Halloween. We will send the winter 2012  issue on Wednesday. I’ve been assigning stories for the spring issue for weeks.

I’m also working on assigning stories and scheduling photo shoots for the next holiday issue  — in 2012.

I would love to see your home decked out for the holidays, too! Please send photos and your name and daytime contact information to keberle@ydr.com. Feel free to nominate a friend or a neighbor, too.
