As you have probably noticed, I reference Martha Stewart a lot! I was a senior food editor at Martha Stewart Living and the food editor of Martha Stewart Baby and Kids magazines before my children were born, and I loved every minute of it. I have favorite recipes that I turn to often...the One Bowl Chocolate Cake has appeared at many of our birthday celebrations, but it is the crafts that inspire me again and again.
When I got a copy of the brand new book, Martha Stewart's Handmade Holiday Crafts, my kids were at my side, pouring over all the ideas. They picked out one project after the next that they wanted to do, and although it was bedtime, insisted on making the "folded shirt card" right then and there...I would not let them raid our large paper stash but even with plain old construction paper they were able to do a pretty good version!
I am sure that many of you would be inspired by this book as well, and am pleased to announce our first ever giveaway: the first five people to respond with a comment will receive a copy. You do not need to give me any personal information here, just send an email to the address below and we will ship the book to any address in the US. I hope you enjoy it, and are inspired to make many of the projects...my kids devoured every page of the Halloween section, and want to make many of the decorations. As always, our biggest struggle will be deciding which ones to try!
