Yeah, she's good. She's a PC Go to Gal and was a guest PTI designer a few months back and then got picked up for the DT when one of the girls left last month.

She's fabulous. I discovered her back in the days when Lime Tart kits teamed with Odd Bird Planet!

I haven't visited her blog in a while. I should remedy that.

She is awesomely talented, it's true. Also, I love that she is willing to show just how she made those unbelievable pillows.

Betty is amazing and she makes all her own projects, cards designs. I wonder if Martha Stewart is "hands on" or if she has an amazingly talented staff?

Betsy is absolutely amazing and I love her blog. She's actually been on the Papertrey Ink design team for quite a while. (Jessica Witty just replaced Kim Hughes on the PTI design team last month). I love how Betsy thinks outside the box, such as creating unexpected patterns with stamps. I also love how she mixes bright colors with the vintage/shabby look. Betsy rocks!

I can hardly believe that one person created so many lovely cards and sewing projects -- it's amazing! Very talented and creative. Thanks for the link.

I seriously doubt Martha is hands on, she didn't even know how to work an edge punch when I was skimming through the channels a while back. She definitely has an amazingly talented staff, lol!

I agree - I know its televised but it isn't live and she shows some pretty sloppy work at times and then just jumps to the finished project. I don't dislike MS but she is very good at sourcing others to do good work for her brand. (I used to subscribe to her magazine and if I had done everything she proclaimed she did I would have never slept - more recently she seems to admit to how much staff she has at work and home to pull off all her ideas).

I find her calendar in "Living" magazine kind of funny, the one that shows her tasks and activities for the month. I could never sit down and map out my whole month (exercise every Friday, lol) and even if I did, I doubt I could adhere to it.

My favorite magazine of hers is "Everyday Food". I've found many great, easy to follow recipes in it and they're usually delicious.

Take a look at Martha's hands someday. She is very definitely hands on with some of her pursuits. I suspect she is more of a gardener than a paper crafter, but I think she does lots of her own work. Of course, with the talent and money to put great people around you, you don't need much else.

Honestly, I'd love for someone to give Martha Stewart some competition! I'm not a MS fan. I do like some of the product line, but I really don't buy into the whole Martha uses this idea. I agree that she is more outdoorsy and decor is probably a strength. But she doesn't have to dabble in everything.

Anyway... cool website! All that colour. Thanks for sharing!
