Confession

I have a confession to make - I love Martha Stewart. I don't mean that I love her, I think that she herself can be really creepy, but I love her magazines, and their styling. Even if you hate her, you have to admit she's got some fantastic craft and cooking ideas. Well, I don't think that she herself comes up with these ideas - I have even heard that she has a couple of NSCAD grads working for her - I think that she hires people who know what they are doing. I also have to say that I don't think that the life being portrayed in these magazines is acheivable - unless you have a staff of 60 servants working full time - and that wanting to "have it all" in the manner of Martha Stewart can be harmful to your sanity. Heck, you could even end up in jail!
But, having said all that, I buy "Living" pretty much every month, and have even been known to buy "Weddings" although I am already married, and not planning on getting married again anytime soon (but all that can change, if a certain someone doesn't play his cards right - hee, hee). So you can imagine my delight when I heard that Martha is launching a new magazine called "Blueprint" aimed at the younger set. It's right up my alley, and I'm very much looking forward to the first issue.
You know what they say, the first step is admitting that you have a problem...

Hey Trudi, As soon as you admit you have a "problem" don't you find other people with that same problem start coming at you from all directions. Cheers to all those who love Martha's magazine. It is one of the most visually appealing magazines on the shelf and you can actually look at it more then once before it is a throw away. Cheers D.
