Only Martha


could inspire me to go home and actually make a spicy pumpkin bundt cake. That fabulous bundt pan we were given didn't hurt, either. What a lot of fun it was to visit her show! I've never been in a studio audience before.

The studio itself was breathtaking: enormous and beautifully decorated, and it was genuinely fascinating to see how the show comes together. Julianne Moore is gorgeous in real life. And didn't Anna Maria do a great job? I loved how she decorated the craft area in advance of her project. So much fun! I'd go again in a heartbeat.

  2. I can't believe you live in NYC and you'd never been to Martha! You're so lucky you got a GREAT show -- we went in October and our shows paled by comparison! Did you specifically request the day that Anna Maria would be there? Or as a NYC resident do you just get extra tickets?

  4. Will you be bringing that gorgeous bundt cake over to my house in Staten Island? I've got the coolest coffee/espresso machine, really...LOL!

    Loved the show...Anna Maria is ADORABLE and so personable you can't help but love her.

    I, too, am curious how it works with the Martha show tickets...duh, I haven't been to any live audience shows in several years, but really should take advantage of it living here in NYC...KWIM?

    I'm just so jealous you got AMH fabric and I didn't.

    With friendship,

  5. I loved her studio too. I went to the sewing show, Tim Gunn was the guest. Martha looks pretty great in person too.

  6. You got to go to such a fun show! I'm so jealous of your bundt pan AND fabric! I was at last weeks taping of the kids show, which was also very exciting.

    For everyone wondering about Martha tickets, If you show up to the studio about 2 1/2 hours before the show tapes, it's quite easy to get standby tickets (according to Justin, my new Martha intern friend!) My friends and I did it, got in just fine, and sat in the seats on the floor!

    I just finished my totebag/backpack from your pattern, your directions were amazing!

    I loved the part of the show where they showed the history of the bundt cake and how the pans are made. What fun!

    I'm loving your designs too!

  15. Hey, everyone. I actually requested my tickets several months ago, long before I discovered Anna Maria would be a guest. You can make your request on Martha's website, and I think tickets are still available for a few dates in January. Cheers!
