We are all given special gifts to share with the world. Artists are given a very special gift because they make things with their hands from nothing. Before there was nothing, and a few hours later, there is something. That’s very powerful, and takes lots of skill and experience. Artists love us enough to share their gifts with us. Made and given from the hands of one to be enjoyed by another.
With all of the craziness (and Joy) of this Holiday Season, don’t forget your local artisans, artists and craftsmen. They are sharing their gifts with you. Handmade, with love for what they do and what they make. It’s easy to support them - and they need your support! they are small business people; they are families to support, mortgages to pay, children to put through college. Your support is critical for their businesses, so that they can continue to share their gift with the world.
In a world of mass-produced everything, it’s so nice to have something that is handmade and carefully crafted with love. Make it a Handmade Holiday for those on your gift-giving list.
Thanks to all of you who have supported me this past year and in previous years. It allows me to keep doing what I love, and share my gifts with the world. Thanks from the bottom of my heart!
