So Martha!


I have issues with Martha Stewart. I don't like her but sometimes I am drawn to her site/stuff. I cannot help it. I secretly want to be her...an all-knowing crafty perfectionist...but I am such a chaotic mess I know I will never be and thus, the frustration. Some of it probably stems from the fact that my family gave my mom the nickname "MS" when I was growing up. My mom is a perfectionist. Her house is always clean. She always has something homemade in the fridge. She always makes the cutest crafts and has amazing painting ability. My house is a disaster! My fridge has dressing and kool-aid. And I love scrapbooking but I admit some projects have been a "hawt tranny mess" like the scary Easter bunny one or the time I tried to make a folding paper ornament and tore it to bits. I know I will never be like Martha but I also know I will never stop trying! :)
If you feel like torturing yourself like me, here is a cute Clothespin Pinwheel craft of Martha's that would be awesome if you made it out of patterned paper:

Martha's site states "So pretty they'll make you dizzy.."
