    As a wedding photographer *and* a bride-to-be, I love pouring through Martha's magazines and books- not just the wedding ones. They are full of inspiration and beauty. This would also be a great excuse to get to NYC (I'm 4 hours away) with one of my best girlfriends and make a mini vacation out of it!

  • MJ

    Because I can do the BEST Martha Stewart impression (I give Ana Gasteyer, from SNL a run for her money!) I've been a longtime fan of Ms. Stewart's wedding magazine and now that I am engaged, the Martha Stewart Weddings magazine has become my bible!

    HI Amy! I just started my Events + Wedding Company this year and have started my blog, Absolutely Charmed, that is doing quite well in the 5 months that it's been in existence. Martha Stewart has always been an icon that I look up to in creativity and her Weddings Magazine is a huge inspiration for what I do. Although I live in California, I was dying to go to this event when I first heard about it a couple of weeks ago. If I were to win these tickets, you can be sure that I will be on the next flight out to NY, I will choose to bring my sister with me (who lives in Brooklyn) and will be ready to enjoy the surreal experience of being at the 15th Anniversary Celebration to meet Darcy, you and other professionals that I hold the highest esteem for.

  • Doreen

    Martha Stewart, Plaza Hotel and all the great wedding experts that are going to be there! What more is there to say..

  • Kim – The TomKat Studio

    Why would I like to be picked? Why wouldn't I? Martha. Amy. Flowers. Cake. Weddings. Candy Buffet. Everything I live for. Sounds like heaven to me! Pick me! Pick me!

  • Sarah

    First of all, I am an absolutely HUGE fan of your unbelievable work at Amy Atlas and would just die if I could see one of your candy buffets in person! That is reason enough for me to want to go!I am from the DC area and wrote to you awhile back asking if you had a presence in DC because I would be first in line to work for you! My dream job, for sure. I can't even imagine how amazing the entire event will be- what an honor it would be for me and my best friend and bride-to-be to be in attendance! An event with Martha that's all about weddings AND with an Amy Atlas buffet? I can think of nothing more perfect! I will have died and gone to heaven! 🙂

  • Jihan

    Years and years ago, before Martha was the Martha we know today,
    I WAS A FAN. I was such a fan, that the theme for my 12th birthday party was "It's a Good Thing/Martha Stewart".
    Martha reintroduced domesticity, creativity and the "better things" as a respected interest, hobby and occupation. The world was hungry for design and good recipes. She continues to oblige, and for that I continue to adore her.
    After I met her at a book signing, and was dazzled by her charm and energy in person, I was relieved that meeting my lifelong "hero" was not a let-down as I had dreaded. She was friendly (in a very regal way), and engaging- further instilling my veneration for her.

    Whether it's reading her magazines, watching her show, or perusing her cookbook, Martha is a part of my every day life.
    I would be soo honored to celebrate the 15th Year of such a remarkable magazine- Martha Stewart Weddings.
    I would bring my mother- who first introduced me to Martha, a very good thing.
    Thank you.

  • April – Everything Little Miss

    I'd love to be able to go because the weddings in MS Weddings are so fabulously inspirational and it would be a treat to be in the same room as some of the people responsible. Plus, seeing one of your candy buffets would be pretty darn exciting (candy!!)! The opportunity sounds like a dream.

  • Annette

    Because I am an event planner in New York. Because I have been a Martha Stewart fan since the beginning of time and have her magazines from issue #1. Because I have made all of her recipes. BecauseI have made alot of her craft ideas and still take them out at Christmas time. I love Martha….she made the wedding industry what it is today!!!

  • Barbara Medina

    I am a mother, daughter, sister and soon to be wife. I have a very loving family and three beautiful children. For many years I did a little of this and a little of that!!! Until one day a light bulb went off in my head…..I remember exactly where I was and what I was doing. I was on 90-94 driving to my mother's home, It was summer and quite a sunny afternoon. If you are from Chicago you know full well that there are certain areas that are basically parking lots on a sunny day!! I am the type of person that while driving I "Think"…I think about all kinds of things….Life…My children….Work etc.
    This particular afternoon I was thinking of what I wanted to do for the rest of my life….You know because one should always make life changing decisions in the car. I starting think back to when I was a small child planning my birthday parties. My father would give me a small sum of money and I would budget out every single last penny!! As I grew older I started planning events, parties etc for family and friends. I always remember doing it for me it was a creative outlet and second nature. It was that day….In the car….That I decided I would be an event planner. I thought to myself, well honestly I already do it! Why not do something everyday that I absolutely LOVE. That day began my journey to where I am today…..A very proud mother, daughter, sister, soon to be wife and now "Business Owner"………
    Being able to attend the Martha Stewart anniversary party would honestly be the "Cherry" on top of this whirl wind life as a planner! Of course Martha Stewart is a huge inspiration for me and It would be an absolute honor to attend.

    After planning my wedding last year, I fell in love with the wedding planning business. I'm a huge fan of Martha too!! I'm currently helping my brother and soon to be sister in law plan their wedding. Being from California, I would love to experience New York in the fall! Pick me, pick me, and help make my soon to be SIL's dream come true!!!!

  • The Groom

    Because I can't take hearing my wife tell me about your "amazing candy buffet's" and incredible "wedding design and detail" anymore! Amy, My name is Michael, and I am the husband of Sarah who wrote to you today @ 3:42. Yes, she would be mortified to know I am leaving this comment, and yes I would be mortified to know that any of my friends knew I was leaving this comment (much less knew that I am reading a wedding blog currently), but please lady, put me out of my "OMG Amy Atlas is Amazing" misery! I could write until I was blue in the face about how Sarah LOVES wedding, or LOVES candy (Forget jewelry, bags, Christian Louboutins…Give that girl some Air Heads, a huge multicolored lollypop, and some peach rings, and your set for life on her favorites list), but I won't. Instead I'll take a different approach. Here is my heart wrenching plea. Amy, Sarah is the ultimate friend. She would do anything to make those closest to her happy. Well, her best friend Joanna has finally gotten engaged and I can't think of a better person to go with Sarah than she. Kind of "kill two birds with one stone" deal. Sarah gets the thrill of her life, and she can take her best friend to experience it as well. Well that's it, that's me begging you Amy. Help a guy out and allow his love of his life to experience the love of her life…Candy

    P.S. It doesn't hurt that Martha is going to be there as well. I get to see Martha's shining face every day in my home as Sarah finds it impossible to throw out her magazines. Even the ones over a year old. Can you feel my pain? This is just meant to be for her. thanks for your time and goodluck to all you folks who feel the same way Sarah does.

  • citygirl – Stacey

    I would absolutely LOVE to go!! I've been a Martha fan for a long time. I get the Martha Weddings magazine just so I can look at the cakes! I'm a cake enthusiast! ld love to see the beautiful cakes up close and in person. Of course I'm also an Amy fan and would be thrilled to see the candy display and to meet you in person as well Pick me, pick me!! Not to mention a night out without kids would be a treat in and of itself!! 🙂

    I am a MARTHA devotee since childhood, when I got my first taste of her exquisite styling and exacting talent. Watching her glide through her warm kitchen and lush garden, I imagined that one day I might inhabit her glossy world. Taking a page from just ONE of Martha's creative gifts, I established a floral design business "Blossom and Branch" and moved to NYC! My dear friend, Jihan, another MARTHA devotee, has just launched her new event design company "Polished." Her enduring Martha love is epic and powerful and showers those around her with fabulousness. It has informed her art and business from the get-go. Please make our dream come true and offer us tickets to this event. You, and Martha, won't be sorry.

  • Goldy

    Why not? I'm not creative enough to come up with such a good comment:)

  • the Jenkins Family

    As someone who has always loved weddings and parties and desires to show her inner creativity, I think winning these tickets would be awesome. Plus, I am a huge fan of both yours and Martha's! I have a true desire to learn more about party planning. I am planning my daughter's 2nd birthday party right now. It is a "pink" party and I am hoping to set up a dessert/candy table similar to yours. I absolutely love your work!! I think this would be an amazing trip and opportunity! What more can I say – I want to win!!! 🙂

  • Ryan Wilke

    Nomination: Jihan Z.

    I have known Jihan Z. for a many years. Ever since I have known her, she has had one idle – one hero, that she aspires to become. This hero is Martha Stewart. Jihan's everyday living/style revolves around Martha's ideas/inventions of domesticity in the home and workplace. Jihan has become a real genius in the world of design, with thanks to none other than Martha Stewart. She has designed her living quarters with a modern eclectic – mid century feel that looks as though Martha could have lived there. I see her cooking almost every weekend with the Martha Stewart cookbook wide open as she briskly beats the eggs.

    Truly, if there were one person in the world that deserves these tickets, it would be my good friend, Jihan Z.


  • Vanessa “Paper Chick”

    Oh! Pick me! I design wedding invitations for lovely brides-to-be this would be so inspiring! And a lovely and dear friend of mine is getting married this coming year and it would be fantastic if she could attend!

  • Heidi

    Jihan is your Martha Stewart ticket candidate! Jihan is always giving Martha the much earned credit for inspiring the craftiness out of her. For Jihan, this would be a dream come true! Martha inspires Jihan and Jihan inspires me and hopefully I inspire others–with one delightfully detailed soiree at a time!

  • Ginger

    Why would I love to win this? I practically AM Martha Stewart;) Seriously, though, I've been an avid reader of her magazines for years, and now that my sister is getting married and I'm the MOH, I can't think of a better way to celebrate! Martha has given me countless ideas over the years, many of which my sister will be benefitting from for her own special event, and iu'd love the chzance to shake that woman's hand and just say, "Thank you." Plus, getting swanked out for a fab party would be pretty fun;)

  • Goosie Girl

    Amy, I would love to go and see my two fave's in one place, you and Martha! You two are who I turn to for inspiration and ideas. All the other fab things there would just be icing on the cake! Pick me! Pick me! Pretty please! With cherries on top!

  • Girlfrog

    Wow! There are so many wonderful reasons that everyone wants to attend this event. I have to be honest and say that I would like to attend not because I'm getting married (we are going on 14 years!) or that I have a party planning business (I do love a good party though) but simply because I'm a long time fan and think that the work that Martha and all who surround her is pretty amazing and awesome!

    Besides who wouldn't like to experience something like this in person?!!

    Good luck with the event!

  • Cyd

    As a freshly minted newlywed who works full-time in the wedding industry, I am in love with all things Martha. I have been reading the magazine faithfully for years and love it when the fresh issue hits my desk. I have stacks of MSW tabbed and marked up and lined up neatly in magazine holders so I can reference them for great ideas at a moment's notice. The Martha Stewart Weddings website, magazine and blog are a daily part of my life and it would be a joy, an honor and a privilege to help celebrate such an exciting milestone.

  • Hbrown

    I wandered aimlessly through a horribly boring life and school to get a career I didn't know if I really wanted. Then I got engaged in a moment opening my first bridal magazines I found my passion. Ever since then I have been putting my heart and soul into weddings. I love Martha Stewart and this would be an amazing opportunity for me. These people are the best of the best and it would be an honor to be in the same room as them. Not to mention I have never been to New York City and it would be a great romantic anniversary present!!!! (well for me at least 🙂 )

  • Cupcake Carrie

    this would be an AMAZING experience!!! i am a HUGE fan of Martha and YOU!!! New York is my happy place and i can't even imagine all the amazing things i could learn!

  • Allison

    Glittery sugared pears,velvety red bows,and topiary trees filled with delectable candies;the 1995 Martha Stewart holiday show awakened my gifting of event planning. I remember videotaping it. I even sat by the television with pen and paper to jot down the recipes. The Martha Stewart holiday show was my muse for Christmas cheer and holiday folly. As a blossoming event planner,I studied vicariously under Martha's tutelage for 7 years before starting my own event planning business. I watched every show and read all of her books. My motto was:"If Martha creates it,write it down". If I am selected as the Amy Atlas winner of the Martha Stewart tickets, I will arrive with pen and paper in hand. One can never underestimate the creative genius of Martha Stewart!

  • two brunettes

    Martha Stewart is one of the biggest influences for doing what I do! I was just married in July, and work as a wedding invitation designer. I am obsessed with the current trend in weddings, and an amazing library of MSW. I am constantly checking MSW website, and always look forward to new ideas. To win tickets to the 15th anniversary would be the most amazing thing in the world! It would be like winning the lottery!

  • The Fancy Lady

    Omg i would love to win this sign me up i have loved Martha since i was a little girl this would be amazing to win. I'm own my own cupcake catering business this would be a great experience to learn more get tips and bask in the awe that in the Martha lol Martha is my idol i love her and everything she does

    HI Amy

    TODAY was the day that my business partner and I register our company!!!(le Petit Buttercup) To be honest I've been thinking of starting something for a long time (cupcake , petits fours…all kinds of baking business) but never found anything that made me go THAT'S IT'S! THAT'S EXACTLY WHAT I WANT! Until I saw what you do. You have inspired me and giving me a direction that I needed to kick start this whole project! Meeting you and all those impressive people in the market would be a great way to start this great new adventure and get lots of ideas.

    Why me? Simply because I could just use a 'break' quite frankly, and it would be a dream come true to see NYC and the Martha team at work, and because your blog and website are so inspirational Amy!

  • Char

    Nomination: Jihan Z.

    Jihan has a true passion for Martha Stewart. In fact, she used to have a picture of Martha tucked under the plastic cover of her notebook in high school! Martha has always been an inspiration to Jihan and I know the opportunity to attend this function would further Jihan's dreams of having a design consulting business. Pick Jihan, she wont let you down and honestly, there is no one more deserving.


  • Keri

    I am a wedding photographer and buy ALL the MS wedding magazines and drool over all the BEAUTIFUL photography!! Maybe someday I will have my change to shoot for the magazine, my oh my!! Thank you for the opportunity!!

  • Lindsey

    Amy, I would be honored to attend because I live, eat and sleep parties. I have a dream of having my own small event design company and my idol is none other than Martha. Everyday I am inspired by you, Martha and so many other extremely talented people and being able to attend would just the icing on my cake.

  • jesi haack weddings

    it is one of my DREAMS to have one of my designs published in Martha Stewart Weddings! To be able to attend this party would be just as amazing, if not more so, in my book!!! I am inspired by Martha to be an inspiration in my industry!

  • Alaskat

    Oh my STARS it would be a dream come true! I am a longtime subscriber of Martha Stewart Weddings. I plan on getting engaged next year and have been saving MS Weddings articles for years. I spent the last couple of years working in the wedding industry and find weddings to be most fascinating.

    The event is at The Plaza to boot! I flew to NYC just to see it before it closed and haven't been since the reopening- it's my favorite hotel! What a spectacular event this promises to be! Darcy, I would be honored to meet you. I could go on and on but I don't want to gush…too much!

    Nomination: Jihan Z.

    You will not be able to find a better representative of the fan population. From her magazine, website, home goods to advice, Jihan zealously embraces all that is Martha. It would be a dream come true for this lovely young lady. Please choose Jihan.

  • Tara

    I'd LOVE to attend this event. I'm a long time Martha fan, especially her Wedding design. Also as an aspiring pastry chef, I'd love to check out the latest in wedding desserts!

    Pick Kim from "TomKat Studios." She has had a very difficult few weeks with a major move in her life and is one of the sweetest individuals I know 🙂 It would mean so much to her and hope you could get to meet her as well.

    I've just read all 38 comments and this is going to be tough for you…maybe they can fit them all!

  • MacKenzie

    I've been reading Marth Stewart Weddings since I was 17 years old. As a teenage in love, my then-boyfriend would indulge my fantasies and buy me every issue. As an adult, I still love the beauty of weddings and the idea of making them personal and unique. With ten or so engagements and weddings happening in my life in the next year, I have many girlfriends looking to me for help. I think tickets to this event (along with being accompanied by one of my brides-to-be) would be the ultimate treat for both of us–and serve to be truly inspiring!

  • s a n s k u :)

    i'd love to be there because martha steward weddings is my favorite magazine (now that MS kids/baby are no longer published). i have been married for 18 years but i never get tired of dreaming of the perfect wedding. 🙂 i have no money to come to NY but i just wanted to say i'd love to be there. 🙂

  • Nat

    OH HEAVENS how wonderful it would be, if you chose me to go to N-Y-C!
    I'm not a professional by any means, but I love weddings way more than it seems(I spent years planning my own with Martha Stewart 'zeens)!
    I follow your blog with religious zeal and must say you have much appeal!
    I realize I am far away, but I could never afford to pay to have such a mag-i-cal few days.
    So Miss Amy, I beg you, please hear my plea-
    I hope for this grand adventure that you would pick me!

    (I'd also be more than willing to help in anyway- I'm good with instructions and wouldn't require any pay!)

  • Jenny

    A florist here. I'm not engaged, but I've been buying MS Weddings since I was a teen. I heart her.

  • Anonymous

    Nomination: Jihan

    I have known Jihan and her Mother for as long as I've lived and am envious of the fabulously styled, design oriented woman Jihan has become. I was jealous of her style growing up, her eye for design and elegance throughout everything she touched and know that the two of them would take away every bit of fabulousness from this event that they could. If I could offer this to her, I wouldn't think twice, but this is as close as I can get so I hope to hear their amazing stories upon return!

  • emouyeos

    I don't have a charming story! I'd just love to go!

  • Kat

    Oh my goodness. I think my heart just skipped a beat or two. This giveaway is all kinds of fabulous!!! I would love to be chosen, I have never been to New York and I can't think of anything more romantic than to attend this event with my darling husband. Plus, it goes without saying, I adore all things Martha Stewart and I think my face would hurt from all the grinning I would be doing just trying to take in all the loveliness! Please pick me!

  • Anonymous

    Hi, Amy
    I've had the pleasure of seeing your blog through Martha Stewart Magazine and not a day that goes by that I don't look at your blog for inspiration. To see a candy station in person would be amazing. I'm hoping to partner with my sister's business "Wedding Event Planning" here in California soon. Please pick me it would be a great birthday gift.

  • Amanda

    I would love to win, but I live in MInnesota. Any chance you would be willing to fly the winner out as well? NO? What do you mean its crazy to ask? What do you mean you filed a restraining order? Really?


    Just kidding.

    SO, needless to say, I am not eligible to win. 🙂


  • Sandi

    Even though I'm already married, I still buy Martha's wedding magazine and pour over it. This would be my dream come true. Not to mention how much I would love to see an Amy Atlas creation in real life. Sigh…heaven.

    Hi there!! I recently found out about your blog!!! and now about this… I would love to go… I work from home and watch Martha Stewart a looot!!! love her magazines, I'm a bride to be and trying to make a living out of the wedding industry as well. I'm all about decor and favors for weddings ( http://www.funfavors.etsy.com) love the city and live a little bit over an hr. away by train!!! pick me 🙂 will be fun!!

  • I would love, love, love this!!!
    Seriously, can you imagine??

    1- I love weddings
    2- I love Martha
    3- I love Martha Stewart Weddings
    4- I love NYC

    I honestly cannot imagine a more awesome event! The hardest decision would be who to bring as my guest! : ) I love my husband and all and we had the most amazing wedding day, but I don't know if he would appreciate a Martha Stewart Wedding party quite like another woman would. Hmm…I guess I will make that decision if I win!

  • Alexis

    I would love to be there…I buy the Weddings issue every season and my husband always gives me this funny look and says…"are you planning your next wedding?". I just laugh…I love the Weddings for all the inspirational ideas, they apply to everything and just fun and happy.

    If i can only aspire to be like Martha someday. She's the one of the most talented designer, home maker, baker, crafter i know. It would be a once in a lifetime opportunity to attend such an event. I can only imagine the designs and the cakes that will be on display. And to be in the same room with influential people in the event industry…WOW! I also would love to see one of our candy tables in person! I'm actually creating one for my daughters birthday come December and I've already purchased alot of the items for it already….can't you tell i'm excited! 😉

  • sweet {love.} shop

    this is the kind of stuff dreams are made of! I would be honored to be a guest if I won! My birthday is in less than 2 weeks and this would be the BEST birthday present in my entire lifetime. hands down. Oh and did I mention I have to move over Halloween Weekend and have 3 girls under age 5. This would be a DREAM come true! If you pick me I promise, promise, promise to do something good for someone else to make their day.

  • Emily

    As a bride-to-be, I use Martha's site (as well as yours!) for constant inspiration. We do'nt have a huge wedding budget so I am doing the invites and many other details on my own. This trip would be a dream come true for me (other than my wedding day that is!).

  • Youngmi

    i've been a fan and reader of martha stewart weddings since i was in high school. people have always thought i was crazy for reading a wedding magazine when i wasn't even engaged but the design ideas in martha stewart weddings are incredible! it is by far the best bridal magazine out there 🙂

  • Danielle

    I would love to go! I design invitations and this would be an amazing event to attend!

  • Rmorri15

    Nomination: Heather B (hbrown)

    I often classify myself as the luckiest man on the planet for getting Heather to agree to be my wife. She is the most loving and giving person I have ever met. Heather works so hard to please other people and doesn't do anything for herself. But there was something missing in her, everyone could see it.
    She is obsessively organized and loves planning. So it would only make sense she would fall in love with event design. I don't know how many times she would stay up all night planning a wedding from top to bottom, only to plan a new one the next night. She pours over blogs (like yours) and wedding magazines for hours. This would be a dream come true for her. And I would give anything to see her happy. Please pick my amazing fiance, Heather!

  • HappyAnnies

    Hi Amy & Friends!

    Wow!!! What a thrill it would be to meet you and Martha & Company to celebrate her 15th Anniversary!

    I wish that I could tell you something wonderful and amazing about me that would make me stand out from everyone else, but the truth is that I am just one of the thousands of women who are inspired by your creativity & talent! It’s nice to know that in this crazy world, that there are still the simple things in life that inspire and bring joy to all of our hectic and crazy lives.

    Even, if I don’t make it to Martha’s special anniversary, please know that I am there in spirit, and will be anxiously awaiting updates & pics on your wonderful blog.
    All the Best,
    Annemarie Sanfilippo 🙂

    Nomination: Jihan Z.

    Dear Amy,

    It's interesting to read everyone who desires to meet Martha due to her unmatched style and imprint on everyday living – what's even more interesting, is I've met "Martha Stewart." I've gone shopping with her, I've seen her apartment, I've eaten her food…as a result, my style in turn has been inspired and expanded.

    Funny though, I said I've met "Martha Stewart" – and in reality I've met someone who encapsulates who "Martha" is – a figure that inspires and expands people's view of style, design and "living." Jihan is the essence of Martha – this ability, I am undoubtedly sure, has been nurtured by her study and implementation of all things Martha – but done with Jihan's own touch…a critical point that Martha would insist on.

    As much as I would love to execute everything that "is" Martha in my own life – I find it even easier to consider these fine touches when I have one of her own representatives here to help me as if she were here.

    Please invite her to next week's soir̩e where she can be inspired by the likes of Darcy Miller and Amy Wilkins Рso that Martha's constituents (the rest of us)can continue to be served by one of her most well-represented agents (Jihan).

    My sincere thanks,

    Valerie P.

    I am so inspired by everything Martha Stewart weddings and the people they collaborate with bring to the table; it's a unique and creative perspective unlike anything else. I would just die to go to this event and appreciate the opportunity!

    Plus seeing one of your Candy Buffets in person would be the icing on the cake. I am in the early stages of starting my own Dessert Buffet business and would think I was in a dream if I was picked to attend. Also getting a break from being Super Mom would be ideal. Did I mention I have never been to New York either? This opportunity would be a dream come true. So pick me pleeeaassse!!

    not sure if i'm too late–it's only 11:20 in Vegas right now! I'm currently a student at The International School of Hospitality enrolled in a Wedding Design and Coordination certificaiton course and learning all about becoming a wedding planner. Vegas weddings are great, but could use a touch of Martha's class and style! I'd love to attend!!

    Nominating Jihan Z!!!

    Please pick Jihan Z for this once in a lifetime opportunity! Jihan has a deep respect for Martha and her talents, and Jihan is one talented domestic goddess herself. Miss Z has culinary, presentation, decorating, and hosting talents that would knock everybody's socks off (they have knocked mine off)! I know how much she would treasure and appreciate this opportunity. I give my full recommendation for Jihan Z!

  • Vicki

    I nominate Jihan Z. She has been a huge Martha fan forever!!

  • Tamara Jansen

    Is there any other way to score tickets to this shindig?! It sounds FAB!

  • LaDolceSwag

    While we were all sitting in the room for Mindy's big celebration, it dawned on me. We are all sitting in these chairs because we woke up one day saying, "Hey, I think I'll do weddings or events;" its because it all stemmed from Martha.

    Martha Stewart gave us the ideas, expanded our minds, got us excited and most of all made us feel like women again. We are able to throw Martha in the mix with carpooling, full-time jobs, spouses, friends, and most of all the gratification of the presentation we put out to display.

    Even though there are tons of experts, Martha built the empire and through media such as print, radio and TV gave us all the hope, joy and courage to become exactly whom I / We want to be.

    There is a little Martha in all of us; however the Martha in me is ready for more more more! To see first hand a Martha party, perfection and what it means to be the pioneer of women planners.

    Imitation is the greatest form of flattery; and seeing a Martha event would cross ever "t" and dot every "i" because when it comes down to it. I have no problem being third behind Martha Stewart & Mindy Weiss, as long as I am mimicking their tastes, talent and extravagance!

    My best,
    Nicole Standley

    Nomination: Jihan Z!

    Jihan is the kind of woman that inspires creativity, ignites passions and fuels motivation in others, simply by the way she lives her own life. (Not unlike her idol, Ms. Martha Herself!) She is 'Quirky meets Sheik'; 'Crafty meets Glamour'. The arm of her influence extends further than I think even she is aware. She would absorb the magic of this experience, and then bring it home and generously shower it like pixie dust all over everyone around her.

    Give Jihan these two tickets, and let her bring a little Martha Magic back to all of us here in the Northwest!

    Jihan Z

    If there were one person in the world that deserves these tickets, it would be Jihan. Anyone who knows her knows how much she loves Martha. This would be a dream come true for her!
