"Memories of Homemade/Handmade"

I look back to growing up and make comparisons to

the way things are now- I was handed down handmade clothing that had belonged to each one of my 3 older sisters,

and now, unfortunately, some clothing will not last beyond one child let alone 4.. Not even those fancy brand

names we pay so much for/ Also look at homemade candies, breads,treats. Mom baked 12 loves bread every week, and

as children, we wanted boughten for a treat. Now, WOW, homemade bread becoming a lost tradition.. SO Moms,

Grammas, Aunts, Dads, Grandpas, Uncles everywhere- keep your homemade/handmade traditions alive in your kids and

grandkids.. So much to be Thankful for in keeping Treasured Memories alive to last an eternity...God Bless and

Happy Holidays.

buying handmade

There are many reasons I love to buy handmade.
Being a crafter

myself I love to support other crafters and artisans.
Plus it helps me to appreciate not only the quality, but

the time, effort,learning and love that goes into handmade products.
Hand made items are unique, I love having

things and giving gifts that are truly special and different.

Josh Wagner's handmade inspiration

As an artist myself I have always had a personal invested interest

in buying handmade,and I do so every time I get the opportunity.

Buying handmade not only leaves you with

unique Interesting personal items, but also supports and generates a great sense of community!

Handmade has heart

Why do I buy handmade? There are so many reasons.

Handmade items have a heart and soul to them that you simply cannot get from a mass produced item. My children

love getting gifts and *knowing* who made them - they frequently call the items by their makers' names, such as

our Where's Waldorf doll named for its

creator, Rebecca, and all of our Count On It games

which are affectionately called simply "Lori games". I like knowing that the materials used in making the things

I buy are natural, will not have lead paint, etc. I also like knowing that my purchases support other women who

are staying home with their families or helping to support their families while doing something that truly

inspires them.
