Oh what a day! and it isn't even 2 pm. I received a package from my very dear friend today. I got all choked up. Needless to say since this is slow time in Etsy, I am going to try and make her something warm and cozy.
Sometimes I am so caught up in making things to keep my store stocked that I forget the importance of also making things for the people I love. I know how much I love receiving a handmade gift.
I have a quote up over my work area I am not sure who said it but I read it everyday:
"Handmade things have an energy. I want to touch them, absorb what's fresh about them."
This is what I hope for my creations when I send them out in the world.
And on that note, the bowl that is shown here is one I just completed for another close friend. He is not only an amazing human being, he is a fabulous tattoo artist at Your Flesh Tattoo in Durango,CO.
Thanks Tom for being such a stellar person. We are truly blessed to have you in our lives.
On that note I will cease to wax nostalgic.
