Handmade Makes You Happy
The reason I buy handmade is because I love the attention to detail
and love that goes into a handmade item. I am not presuming that the artist loves me, but I know that they love
their craft. I can tell when something is made well, and is unique, that the artist gets joy from making something
fun and pretty that will make other people smile.
My most recent purchase is a funky painting of a vintage
radio. I love it and hung it up in my office.
I love to knit!
I think handmade items have more value - i hate anything
mass produced! Its sad seeing items selling for a couple of dollars made in a 3rd world country. People buy that
and not something lovingly hand made..unfortunately no one seems to want anything had made any more - they just
want cheap.I will keep buying hand made - i will buy less items but always hand made!
Handmade Heritage - Pass it on
So much of what we
appreciate can be traced back to how we were raised. Did you mother/grandmother/aunts do handwork? If you are my
age (nearing retirement), then you probably answer yes. One grandmother taught me to knit, another to crochet, my
Mom taught me to sew.
I am trying to do the same today with my grandaughters. If all they know is what
they see at Walmart, they will never develop an appreciate for the finer side of handmade.

buy handmade because each and every item is infused with the crafter's skill and vision.

Homemade items support the economy! Buying
homemade candles will also support the environment.
