    It’s a shame that I have to do this thing called “work” as I would have loved to watch the show “live.”
    Loving the flowers! On my to do list!

    I just love Martha Stewart’s show and products! Everyone on her team is so creative, and like she said on the show, they really do have the best job in the world!

    I adore all martha stewart stuff especially the punches which I have about 50 of. Can you tell me when more will be released & how often new ones will be released please. I would LOVE to win a MS cricut cake give away. Thanks for the chance. Even if I don’t win I still love all martha stewart items

    The LIVE blog was amazing, GREAT FUN, wish I could have been in the studio for the live show.
    My question is:
    is there any chance on a Martha Cricut cartridge with only borders coming out soon???
    And thank you for the chance to win a great prize.
    Keeping my fingers and everything else crossed 🙂
