Post-prison Martha Stewart is somehow more palatable to me. Not sure why. She bugged me before, but now she’s doing some really nice stuff on her show and in her magazines and doesn’t seem so full of herself. Guess a little bit of incarceration will do that to ya. Brings you down a notch, I would imagine.
This year she’s doing some super cute things if you’re giving gifts made or baked by hand for the holidays. Making Christmas Cookies? She’s got you covered.
Fair warning to Penelopes reading at work: every page of Martha’s website opens with a video with sound that immediately starts playing when you open the page. My suggestion is to turn off your volume now, so you can surf the following links quietly.
You can go into Michael‘s and buy several different types of boxes, all heartstoppingly gorgeous, to give all manner of cookies, candies and other treats.
Cutest thing I’ve seen today? These boxes that enable you to send home a single piece of pie with your guests. That’s so Penelope! It’s a free template so anyone can do it. She gives you the template and the step-by-step instructions.
I just saw her full line of craft and scrapbooking supplies at Michael’s and almost shelled out money for glitter, for heaven’s sake. I hate glitter. I don’t scrapbook. Yet, I wanted that darn glitter. That’s how pretty her stuff is nowadays.
Glad you’re back, Martha!
