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!

Give Thanks & Remember Them

Photo is one of my Grandaughters and a

handmade sweater I gave her one year for Christmas-Lil Bunny belly was pockets for her hands to keep warm-As I

searched for a photo to fit handmade and also thinking about Christmas- I am Remembering those who have given

their lives in serving our Country and fighting for our Freedoms, so that we may even have the liberties to make

handmade items something to be proud of and call our own- Merry Christmas-God PLease Bless Us Everyone...

I love Handmade

If someone takes the time, and love to put in a handmade item I

think that always shows. Yes you may be able to find it at Walmart cheeper, but do you see the "love" in every

A Mother's Love

I have always loved crafting and sewing. I also realize

how time consuming it is to make something by hand. We are all so often in a rush and on a budget that we buy

things on sale or in bulk, not thinking twice about how those products got to be so cheap. While I was pregnant

with my daughter I started making things for her....a burp rag here, a mei tai there.....mainly because I wanted

to make something special for her. I loved the thought that she would be the only one with these exact items and

that they would last long enough for her to appreciate them later on, so I kept sewing and painting. It made me

realize that everything should have that kind of special meaning. I may not be able to make everything for her,

but I could find someone else out there to put as much time and love into making something for her. That is why I

buy handmade.
