  9. I love supporting the 'handmakers' of this world. I enjoy purchasing handmade and feeling the love that has gone into the item, and I get such a buzz out of giving one of my items, almost as if a part of me has gone too. It makes for a giving, sharing community, financially and emotionally.

  19. I love handmade because it is deeply personal... it must surely begin with a dream, a wish or intent to create, then it evolves through the hands and overcomes any obstacles until it reaches fulfilment... what a victory!
