A Guest Blog From Anduin Havens!

Please enjoy this guest blog from our television set designer, Anduin Havens!

Every now and then, I get to travel with Martha.  Last December, she was invited to give a craft demo and to be interviewed at the Library at MacDonald Island Park in Fort McMurray, Alberta Canada.  Because I have organized many craft demos for Martha, I was selected to make sure that she would have everything needed to show forty audience members how to craft wreaths!  In the December issue of Martha Stewart Living, Martha’s column was all about how to make four great wreaths and she demonstrated the Gold Leaf-Sticker Wreath.  Some wonderful vendors sent the craft supplies so that our audience could follow along with the craft demo – the MDF wreath forms were sent by 3 Ring Circles, the Martha Stewart Crafts gold paint and paint brushes were sent by our partner Plaid, the Martha Stewart Gold Leaf Stickers were sent by another great partner - EK Success, and the finishing touch was beautiful double-faced satin ribbon sent by our Canadian source, Masterstroke Ribbon.  It was a long trip from New York City to Calgary, and then on to Fort McMurray in a prop plane!  But, I with greeted with such a warm welcome at the end of the flight.  Everyone I met in Fort McMurray was lovely, helpful, and so excited that Martha would be visiting!
