For those you you Martha doubters out there (I'm not naming names, but you know who you are), I have decided to feature some ideas that I love from my Martha Stewart Living subscription every month. The September issue just arrived, but I have to share a few ideas that I love from back in July.
First off, I love these red, white, and blue ribbon star banners. And don't they make cute straw decorations too?
I think they would look really good with these Patriotic fans. You would have the cutest Independence Day party on the block.
Now, usually the recipes are a little beyond my skill level, but the July issue had really tempting ice cream and popsicle recipes. Like this one for ice cream mixed-berry pops.
And this one for ice cream sandwiches made using thin brownies on the outside (so simple, why didn't I think of that?)
It looks like the September issue isn't up online yet, so check back later for that, but you're still in for a treat because Martha already has her Halloween stuff up (Don't you love how I refer to her by her first name, as if we are chums?) I was in Michael's the other day and you can already buy the Martha Stewart Halloween items. Here's an awful picture from my phone.
This year, Martha is running an online Halloween workshop that you can sign up for to get her editor's Halloween tips to craft a creepy Halloween.
And for the next eight weeks, you can check in for the Halloween idea of the day. Today's idea for this baby costume made me laugh.
And don't forget to check around her site for other Halloween ideas. I think I want to try to make these invisible pops this year. And did you know that Wal-mart just started carrying some of the Martha Stewart craft products? I was a little surprised by that, but I'm still curious enough to want to check it out.
