Martha Stewart Crafts

Martha Stewart is the reason I craft. I started reading her books in middle school and watching her craft segments. I love her simple, clean style and I am big fan of the design of her products. So of course when she launched her paper crafts line I was ecstatic.

I went to Michaels on the "premiere day" just to check it out. What I found was a very Martha styled collection of staples and many of her party ideas from her Living magazine nicely packaged for completion at home. It was exactly what I had expected. So of course I bought. The glitters are divine, the ribbons pretty and affordable, the markers and pens are GREAT. I also bought the lady bug paper pack (so cute) and some of her glues. The 18 x 18 paper is an altered artist's dream...such a large sheet to cover your projects with. I know I will be back to stock up on some punches and that rotary tool.

Her linen organization products in robin's egg blue makes me want to rethink my scrap room decor once again. Blue and brown...that might be the ticket.

Did I mention I attended her show. I even was on TV...I should have worn black..more slimming. Anyway my sister and I were in the audience during her scrapbooking week. Very cool experience.
