Martha Stewart

When I think of ‘do it yourself’ projects,  the first famous person that comes to my mind is Martha Stewart, and that is why she is our first ‘Someone You Should Know’ for DIY here at The Twenty Somethings.

She may be 71-years-old (here I was thinking she was only in her 50’s!!!), but Martha still knows what is in an out with her versatile talents with food, crafts, parties and shopping.

Be sure to check out her website and don’t forget to also check out videos from her TV show, where she brings on special guests to show you how to make things and also gives you great advice.
