One of the biggest annoyances in my everyday life is seeing the term “iconic” used casually all too often. Modern culture has mapped a pedestrian meaning onto this sacred word that, in my opinion, should be reserved for the ultimate movers and shakers throughout history.

An individual who has proven herself time and time again to be the baddest in the biz is homemaking, crafting and television personality extraordinaire (among many other talents) Martha Stewart. Don’t agree with me? Check out this timeline of accomplishments and Internet-breaking moments that the media mogul has gifted us with since the moment she stepped foot out of federal prison.
