That’s me, on the left, along with the super cool chicks from Treasury of Memories in Bellingham at the Martha Stewart Keynote address at the CHA Show 2007.
And onto one of the higher points in my short business life: Martha Stewart likes our name. That’s right, she actually said, in front of 3000 witnesses that she likes our name. I personally am rather fond of the name “Bramble Berry” and it was a delight to hear her say she liked it as well.
The divine Ms. Martha was talking at the CHA show and gave the keynote address on her new foray into the scrapbooking industry. She shared some funny stories (like about the time she stayed up all night, making amazing cards only to have the recipients not realize they were handmade because they were too perfect). She showed amazing photographs from her magazine. She also answered three pre-arranged questions from the audience.
Thus, her commenting on our name. I submitted a question beforehand asking Martha who her mentors were. When the moderator read our question, Martha commented on how much she liked our name.
For the record, she said that her parents were both teachers so she looks for teachers in everyone around her.
I was hoping for an actual author or business leader’s name so I could devour everything they had ever written and hopefully get just a wee bit of Martha infused into me!
