Getting into this whole handmade thing has truly opened my eyes to the world of passionate handi-crafters. I had no idea there were so many websites, organizations, people who are fervently committed. Exploring the world of Etsy has shown me the insane amount of creativity and skill there is in the handmade world, not only in the products people create, but in the way the site is set up and the beautiful photography of the goods. Sites like buyhandmade.org and tryhandmade.com are exciting to me; they take my love of the handmade and make it an important statement, something I can be proud of. It's kind of exciting to realize that I'm not the only one who loves to make stuff, to feel that there is more soul and personality in things created by someone's hands rather than a machine.
