My heart beats for handmade

I'm so excited to be I'm linking up with sweet Maggie from Gussy Sews for her weekly Inspiration Workshop!


I love all things handmade. I love that long before a handmade item ever reaches my hands, there is someone out there who had a dream, an idea, a vision, and breathed it into life. There is a story behind each and every beautiful handcrafted item that I own. A story about someone whose heartbeat for dreaming, envisioning, sewing, creating, designing. Someone who spent hours in a craft store, a studio, in front of a sewing machine. Someone who put in hours of labor and love to produce a beautiful masterpiece. Something that is worn, hung on the wall to be admired, a centerpiece, a beautiful display that greets us every morning. Something that can take our breath away. Something that reminds us of the all beauty that surrounds us. 

I just adore handmade. What about you?
