Back in the day when Martha was just a wee caterer, and my mom was getting married, Martha herself made the wedding cake  Grin

My favorite Martha moment is when they were interviewing her when she got out of prison.   She was like, "I missed lemons in prison." and the reporter goes "What else did you miss?"  and she said "Mainly lemons."... long pause... "and my dogs and my family."

ok i seriously started crying, that was soo funny! and so Martha! I think the reason we all love/hate her is because she is so cold and inhuman but does all these home-y things. It's like hugs from robots....but creepy.
I have no idea what I'm doing!

But kids actually grow more mentaly with contrasting and bright colors. It may not be quite the thing Moma wants, but they are only little for so long.

I am not a fan of her persona, per se, but her decorating style ( de-cluttered, clean lines, focus on specific themed items that are collected) have revolutioned how magazines are done.

The photography is beautiful and it focuses on the item.

Her Kids Magazine I adore because the bedrooms are how kids rooms should be -  soft colors in furniture that grows with a child. Not primary colors with retarded borders of stupid bears around or Barbie/Care Bears/Whatever. Nice clean, classic rooms that are not commercialized and a safe haven.

thing is they show similar brain activity response to black and white patterns, (shrugs) it looks like it's the contrast, not the 'color' at least right now.

some of the picture of kids rooms look wrong to me, to neat, to "perfect" nothing I'd feel comfortable letting my nephews actually live in.  for that mattern nothing that *I* would feel comfortable living in.

This is the thread that got me registered.  (It wouldn't have been long anyway).  Just had to say, re: Martha Stewart is what gets me the most irritated with her -- and yes, I love and hate her -- is that the weddings and events she features are always her employee's, so what about cool crafty folk like you and me?  I wonder if she sponsors their events so they can spend 5000-bazillion dollars on crepe paper and woman-hours to HANDMAKE every single flower in the wedding (remember that one??)  I mean, who has the resources for that?  Anyway, just a little bitter.

Martha Stewart is hilarious, she is such a control freak, I wish I saw that episode with the cookie monster!!!!  Cheesy ... Anyways I remember when I was in grade 5, I was in the school choir and for the Christmas assembly we had to sing a song about Martha Stewart. It was about how great she is, all of the kids hated it.

Swear we'll shake it up, if you swear to listen!

Ok, my first post, how fitting it be to Martha.

Ive had a subscription to her magazine since I was 16.

Im 25.

I love the visuals, the holloween issue is the best, and the kids issue is so cute.
But its not like its controlled by martha down to the letter. It seems like it is, but please.

A few of her projects that I have followed to the letter have flopped.

Cookie that called for 2 CUPS of butter, I know, but I trusted her.  I pulled out this horrid greasy mess. What a waste.

Once I tried to make these so pretty wire and glass bead snowflakes.  And I was not going to order her expensive, only make a few, kit. So I tried to sodder the wires together and use beads from the craft shop.  They were OK, but not like I fantasized about......

I loved the muppets episode, did anyone see the time she went on with her SNL double? SO funny.

AAAAAAAAAh  Did anyone see the Zach Braff episode?  It was just on here and it was so funny!  He makes a dog dish for his dog but he can't use the saw properly and it ends up a mess.  He is so cute and funny, I should have taped it and watched it over and over again.
