I love handmade

I buy handmade because I want to support artists/crafters and

shift away from mass produced. I also like to create handmade, too!

Knowing where it came from..

My family buys handmade or homegrown because we like to know where our goods

come from and where the money is going. I love spending my hard earned money on something that I know was made

with heart. I love knowing that I'm supporting another small business, or that I may be helping to keep a Mom,

Dad or both at home.

Handmade Is Beautiful

I love handmade stuff because no one else will be wearing

what I'm wearing. I like to make a necklace at the spur of the moment to match my outfit! But I'm picky about

quality, I want something nice to wear. So I either make it myself or buy from one of my artist friends.

is it so wrong to want to make things with your own two hands?

having been an

artsy/craftsy type person my whole life, i am absolutely loving the "buy handmade" movement! in a world that is

full of corporate conglomerates and cookie cutter mass production, being in possession of something that was made

with love and care and true originality is worth more than it's price!

i started creating again after

going through a difficult time in my life... and i've not looked back since! i'm continually inspired by the

world now, especially when i see what other artisans are making! jewelry making has always been a dream of mine,

and it's lead me to explore other media as well. i've been able to donate my pieces to worthy causes, and may

be entering my first juried show this fall.

tapping into my creative side has totally changed my life. not

to mention my own personal style!!!!!

i am thrilled that handmade now has a solid presence! and i'm

even more thrilled to be a supporter!!!!

keep on creating! i know i will!

I'm

so in love in handmade goodies. They make me so happy. I know when I buy handmade items the process of creation

probably created so much joy in someone elses life. I know when I make handmade crafs it makes me so happy. So I

like to buy them knowing the process is probably making someone else happy as well.
