Affirmation and Inspiration - Artisan Handmade Three for Thursday

 

 

“More smiling, less worrying. More compassion, less judgment. More blessed, less stressed. More love, less hate.” 

― Roy T. Bennett, The Light in the Heart



 

In these days which seem filled with words of hate and division, it’s sometimes hard to remember that there is MUCH more good in this world than there is bad.  We just have to be aware of it. The smile of a friend or stranger. An unexpected helping hand. A kind word. Being strong in the face of adversity. That’s why I love the quote above . . . and sometimes use it as my mantra while doing some deep breathing to slow down my sometimes very active monkey mind.

First in the Shop - Wonderful Handmade Wednesday on Indiemade

 

 

I always enjoy browsing through the handmade shops of artist friends.  So much talent and such creativity! This week’s Wonderful Handmade Wednesday on Indiemade features the first item in each shop (as of when this blog was being worked on) featured here:  First In the Shop. Oftentimes the first item is the newest - sometimes it’s not. Either way, the items are all wonderful and each will fill that need for a gift perfectly.  

 

Remember:  SUPPORT INDEPENDENT, HANDMADE ARTISTS

 

Pink for Valentine's Day - Wonderful Handmade Wednesday on Indiemade

 

 

Valentine’s Day is rapidly approaching and, hopefully, you are beginning to start a gift list.  With that in mind, and since last week I featured red items, this weeks Wonderful Handmade Wednesday on Indiemade will feature items created with shades of pink, from pale pinks to vibrant pinks and lots in between.  But just like last week, these items are not overtly Valentine’s Day themed - no hearts (yet!).  All the designs featured are handmade by talented handmade artists and can can be worn / used anytime of the year.  THINK HANDMADE FOR VALENTINE’S DAY THIS YEAR!
