• THE WHY OF MAKING • Someone asked me the other day why I make my own pieces and why I don't get someone else to make them to free up my time. I had so many answers, the first one being because I enjoy it and find it relaxing! We ended up having a great chat and came to the same understanding that until we make something, especially something for ourselves, we cannot understand the effort that goes behind some of the things we buy and in particular, handmade goods. Making helps us value and appreciate things when our own energy and time is invested in them. Have you made something for yourself lately? If so, tag and let us know ... we'd love to share your story!
