A crafting website

One of my obsessed over crafting websites of the moment is MarthaStewart.com
I was over there a few weeks ago to look up a recipe and discovered a totally new and awesome feature. You can create your own account where you can collect, rate, e-mail, and comment on each and every recipe, decorating idea, article, and craft project. When you collect "ideas" you can tag it with your own tags and then add a personal (just seen by you) comment about it. For instance, I looked up Raspberry-Strawberry sauce and made a personal comment about this being the sauce I used on Olivia's birthday cake for her 2nd birthday and how delicious it is over any kind of cake, ice cream, pancakes, waffles, biscuits, etc. This feature is so easy, so simple, and yet so handy.

Another wonderful discover was the Crafts of the Day section. Each day they have a new craft posted with instructions on how to make it. You can browse all the way back to December 31. You can even sign up to have the Craft of the Day e-mailed directly to you. You can also collect these and add to your account.
I love this feature. It's a new inspiration every single day.



The other very cool Martha Stewart thing I'm digging at the moment is the new "Easter Workshop." You can sign up for the e-mails and they will send you an em twice a week until March 23 with detail Easter crafts for that week. If you click on the link it will take you to the Easter homepage with a countdown, all the crafts, a master shopping list, and an Easter dinner menu (which I personally plan to do.)

All of these things are perfect helpers to our Month of March Craftiness.
And don't forget to check out Martha's personal blog here.
There's also the Organizing Tip of the Day, Cookie of the Day,
and five great blogs that you can check out here.
With all this wealth of information, does anyone truly need another website? :)

I was signed up for the Easter one - but somehow, didn't know about the rest.

Thanks for the heads up!
