On Thursday, I went to Martha Stewart’s American Made event. It was held in the beautiful Vanderbilt Hall at Grand Central Terminal. My main goal was to attend a fantastic panel on which one of my favorite bloggers, Design Mom was speaking. The panel was led by Pilar Guzmán, Editor in Chief of MSL, and formerly of Cookie, and momfilter too.
Also on the panel were Maxwell from Apartment Therapy and Deb from Smitten Kitchen! I didn’t realize that workshops would still be happening when I arrived, but was thrilled to participate. I did a few cute crafts including making a pom pom keychain and an adorable camp necklace which I will probably give to Wren. While crafting at the tables, I chatted with some of the Crafts Department staff and it was nice to learn how they got their start with Martha and see their enthusiasm for their work.
I walked around a bit afterward, checking out all the beautiful handmade items for sale. A few minutes before the panel started, I went to get checked in and find a seat. Imagine my surprise when in walked Martha Stewart! On top of that, I was this close to her!
