Doesn't it feel good to look at beautiful things, knowing they were also carefully handmade? Somehow, pieces from Etsy and other (masterfully) handcrafted pieces just seem so much more special to me. I'm always willing to spend a little more on them than I would something similar in a department or chain store. Also, Etsy gives me great ideas and inspiration for making some of my own pieces. They often don't come out quite as beautiful as the original, but it also helps me learn a little more about my craft.
Have you spent some time on Etsy lately? Leave a comment and tell me about your favorite Etsy shops. I'm always looking for new ones! Have an awesome day!
