Default Is Martha Stewart Crafts Making A Come-back?

I am pretty excited - Martha Stewart Crafts seem to be popping up in Michael's. Not just the party/celebration line or paint lines she's had for a few years or a couple of 12 x12 new pads of paper - but now different glitters are out again and some punches, although those are past designs just in new packaging. Has anyone else noticed this too? Or seen her new stuff selling anywhere else? She was my favorite designer when I was scrapbooking and her punches I've always loved for my card-making. I've looked around online for any info but don't see any. Just wondering if anyone else is noticing her crafting items showing up again?

I don't think she's making the products like she was earlier. I think she's just selling her name --name branding. I see her name appearing on yarn, on paint made by Plaid, and on fabric. Her paint previously had her name only, not the name of another manufacturer alongside it. On the yarn her name appears alongside Lion.

This is the most current info I found on the net
Martha Stewart’s brands shopped by owner as her pay swells

Personal the only item I have that currently has no issues with is the score board.

My father bought me a patio table and chairs for a house warming present 7 years ago. It's holding up fine but has a recall on the chairs due to a balancing, tipping over problem. But I no longer have proof of purchase or item number of set so I can't get the chairs replaced.

I bought a queen bed sheet set, lasted 6 months before it started to unravel.

Her paper punches one broke and the others I have just are so hard to use I won't buy anymore of them.

Also with that stock market situation she was in I had some family members lose a lot of money.

So at this time I don't purchase, or watch MS. JMO.

That makes a lot of sense, thank you! On the Michaels website - you can see her products now popping up. She has her own line with Circuit. Glitter paste now that looks to me like Nuuvo product similar. Cutting tools. Paper crafting. And so on. Take a look...

Wow... she really IS getting into everything! From the article linked above:
“She has been signing new deals with smaller brands like Canopy Growth, a marijuana company, which unveiled a deal with her on Thursday.”

Is that supposed to help crafters chill out when their punches don’t work well? Haha!

I used to see her glitter and some tools at Blicks but not lately.

I have the score board that I got there with a coupon years ago. That's it.

I was really shocked to see that when I read that earlier!
