First We Dream - Wonderful Handmade Wednesday on Indiemade



One of my favorite sayings is from Carl Sandburg:  “Nothing happens unless first we dream.”  I don’t know about the other artists that are included in this post, but I often dream about a design, especially one I am trying to figure out, whether it be a color combination or a new wire wrap technique.  Maybe “dream” is not exactly the right word, but a design can come to me in that state between wakefulness and sleep where my mind comes up with all sorts of weird stuff.  


Anyway, the handmade items in this post are the first ones listed (at least at the time this was posted) in the shops of the Indiemade artists featured here.  Most are one of a kind items . . . and all are a “dream” to have.  Enjoy.

First We Dream

I love that quote! I definitely dream about my designs and/or think about them when I happen to be just starting to wake up first thing in the morning. I have gotten up in the middle of the night to gather things together to make something the next day because I am afraid I won't remember. I'm so happy to see my new Angel Fish pair included in your wonderful handmade collection today. I of course I always love looking at your choices but I have to single out your beautiful Valentine Earrings and Gloria's Peruvian Green Opal Bracelet. <3

I often literally dream up my designs too. So glad to hear I'm not alone. Your item choices are beautiful, and thank you for including my garnet and opal bracelet.
