Nice detail on the stencil, but Martha Stewart is complete EEEEEEEVIL. The only thing she does is make ribbon candy and then have her a drink. ALL MARTHA DOES IS DRINK. She must be an alcoholic, because she drinks to everything. Anyways, Lynette Jennings is so much cooler than Martha. At least Lynette Jennings didn't make Average Joes loose money by playing with the stock market. Others have gone to prison for it, and she should, too.

I don't really understand why people are getting all upset that everything on Martha's show isn't her idea. The point of her staff is to come up with stuff for her. I mean, it's not like Bill Gates creates, and writes every single program at Microsoft. It's sort of sad how it's getting to be trendy to rag on her...

But anyways, I like the stencil alot. I would fix the eyes as well, allthough it is sort of funny.

you know, i've never been terribly sure how to feel about martha stewart.  on the one hand, she's a very successful and independent woman, but on the other, she made her place in the world by playing off of the anti-feminist 50s housewife stereotype of arts and crafts.  with that said, i think that your stencils are very nicely done.  i rather like the "no-eyes" look..

Alrighty, I'm newly registered, so please don't scare me away. Shocked Not to get too political, but MS seems like she was simply raised by a thrifty, immigrant family. She's incredibly resourceful and creative. She also includes eco friendly tips and composts and has her own laying hens. As such, I view her as creative and thrifty rather than oppressed (or opppressive). Perhaps old fashioned in a modern sense? ie Women can vote, but that waxed pesticide laden fruit at the grocery store is a no no.

Anyway, I think this stencil was modeled after a MS Halloween mask, hence the missing eyes. So the flip side, anti-Marthas, could do a variation with with prison bars running across the face and her classic phrase "It's a good thing." beneath it Or add horns and red eyes for an evil Martha.

catladysarah:  I have to disagree with the statement that Martha is anti-femenist.  It is frustrating to me when women view femenism with the attitude that "womenly" things are anti-femenist..  To me, that's anti-femenist. 

Femenism involves the power to choose.  As women, we are able to- and SHOULD live our lives as we see fit.  If we CHOOSE to stay at home with our children and do arts and crafts for the rest of our lives, we are deciding to live our lives how we want to.  That doesn't sound like oppression to me... it sounds like freedom.

Femenism defined is "Belief in the social, political, and economic equality of the sexes."  We ARE equal enough to choose our own destiny.  Whatever that may be.
