While Kate from Centsational Girl and the CSI Girls go through the projects today, we have some exciting news to share about next week’s challenge.

The theme is Martha Stewart!

I know that Martha Stewart has inspired so many of us in our projects, decor, cooking and almost every aspect of making our homes more beautiful. We are so excited about this theme because it incorporates so many different elements.

And we are thrilled to announce that the Martha Stewart Crafts Department is going to be our guest judge for next week!

The people at the craft department are so creative and fabulous — it is an honor to have them!
