Julie at Creative Genius's handmade inspiration

5 years ago I opened a gallery that

exclusively sells handmade items. I think as Americans we do not always support our own culture and I think

handmade items are a big part of what makes up a culture. One thing I admire about Europe is the focus that is

placed on the arts and here in the United States, people have this Walmart mentality. Instead of focusing on the

quality of handmade items, people go cheap. It was refreshing to come across this site...hope it inspires a ton of

people to appreciate the little bit of personal energy that goes into every handmade creation and that gets

transfered from creator to buyer.
