Martha Stewart Has Been Defeated!

I know some of you have a deep loathing for Martha Stewart. So bad that if you saw her on the street you may try to hit her.You don't get bonus points for TKOing M.S. tho.

Although, after prison, she may have more street cred than you

I get it! I can see why some may hate her. But I can't help be be drawn to her show and her books. How she makes things looks so easy and perfect. How the crafts in every picture in her book look so simple. I mean, how can making organic mothballs not go wrong? (I kid. That was supposed to be a funny example of something ridiculous from one of her books or her show...nevermind)

 Do you see what I mean? How pretty and soothing the colors are? Come to Martha! 

When we swapped cable providers we were blessed with the Fine Living Network. I'm tellin' ya, I could sit there and watch the shows on this network ALL DAY! So while they do air Martha Stewart reruns and various other DIY and design shows, I happened to catch a show called "Whatever Martha"

The show is hosted by Alexis Stewart (Martha's daughter) and her friend Jennifer where they proceed to watch old Martha Stewart Living shows and make fun of her. They poke fun at what Martha is wearing, how she talks, things she's doing. Not only do they share the frustration of "that's SO not real life" but they try to make projects along with herThe show is produced by MSLO so it's not a total Martha boycott, but still, the show is a lot of fun.

Two thumbs up from me. I love this show and it's now on my permanent TiVo list. It airs Wednesday nights at 9 and 9:30 ET.

I love Martha, even though most of my projects never turn out as elegant. I've heard of the Whatever Martha show. Living in Mexico, I seriously doubt that I will ever catch an episode. UNLESS I can find one on YouTube! :D I'm going to check it out now!

Thank you so much for stopping by my blog and commenting!
