Made with love

There is goodness woven into an handmade item. The maker used their skills and their creativity to develop goods to share with the community. The care and attention used creates an essence that is not present when the item is made on a factory conveyor belt. Take time this week to visit a Famer's Market or craft show in your neighbourhood where you can buy honey, Christmas cards, or a warm hat made with love. I was lucky enough to have mittens knitted for me by a friend that I will wear all winter long and think of her each time I slide them onto my chilly hands.

  1. The town that I live in is a very art and crafts type town and there are dozens of shops where everything is handmade. I love it :)
