Behind the Scenes : Announcing Martha Stewart Crafts Studio at Beaches Resorts!

Posted by

Exciting news: today Martha announces on her show the launch of Martha Stewart Crafts Studio™ at Beaches Resorts. We developed five classes exclusively for Beaches Resorts using our Martha Stewart Crafts tools where guests can create handcrafted and personal souvenirs of their stay. The five classes are: Fun with Glitter, Scrapbooking, Stencil Fashions, Punch & Stencil Fashions, and Make Your Own Postcard.

It was an exciting day on the set of Martha’s show. Big Bird was there to announce that he will be joining his Sesame Street friends at Beaches Resorts (Sesame Street is also a partner). I was star struck! Really, I almost cried! He is so...big...and yellow...and sweet! Hannah Milman, Big Bird, and Martha demonstrated how to make the postcards from our Make Your Own Postcard class and then Martha and I made stenciled t-shirts from our Stencil Fashion Class.

Recently, Hannah and I went down to the resorts to train the counselors in our craft techniques. Hannah went to Turks & Caicos and I went to Jamaica (tough job, I know, but someone has to do it!). It was an amazing trip, and a pleasure to spend time with the warm Beaches Resorts staff. The counselors seemed to really enjoy trying out all the craft projects. Most of them stayed after training to play with the punches and glitter!

  • Four years ago my partner Joe and I opened our own Flower Shop in Scarborough Maine.
    Though I am creative every day in one way or another the FOUR girls 10-14 in age range are also very creative, yet during the Holidays it is hard for them to stay in a creative mood as mom (myself) and dad (Joseph) work around the clock. So when the Holiday actually comes...well lets just say we are not very crafty anymore.
    Your Beaches Resort partnership is not only brilliant marketing but sure to enhance many kids stay at the resort. I am looking forward to submitting a picture of the girls at the Martha Stewart Craft section! I will also submit a picture of thier very first floral arrangement when we opened the shop four years ago! Thank you for taking the time to read this! :)

    All the pieces are vintage and have been collected from garage sales, estate sales and thrift stores! Be creative and pick your own theme.....then go for it!

  • This is awsome. Our family loves sandles and this is going to be a great addition. We went for our honeymoon and can not wait to go back again. It is an amazing experience staying at their resort.
