d*s on martha stewart

by Grace Bonney

With all the traveling and work happening during the last few legs of our Design*Sponge at Home book tour, it’s sometimes hard to take a moment to stop and reflect on all that’s happened this year. It still hasn’t hit me fully, but one thing I wanted to be thankful for this morning was getting a chance to stand side-by-side with a woman who has been an endless source of inspiration to me since day one: Martha Stewart. Before we flew out to Salt Lake City on Monday, I got to join Martha for a crafting segment taken from Design*Sponge at Home. In a truly surreal but wonderful moment, I got to show Martha how to use transfer paper to create custom Thanksgiving table linens. It was so fun to craft with her, and the highlight of the day was hearing her tell one of the crafting team that she wanted to make 12 more of our placemats to use at her home for the holiday. I can’t think of a higher compliment. Thanks again to Martha and everyone at the show for having me as a guest. The episode airs today, so if you want to tune in and watch our turkey (and pumpkin pie) talk, click here to find your local air time. xo, grace
