My Handmade Resolution


We’re now into the second week of January so I’m a little late with a New Years Resolution post. Sorry guys!
Better late than never right? I think I’ve come up with the perfect resolutions for 2017 and I’m writing this post to encourage you guys to join in too!

buy-more-handmadeI love the rush you get when you bring home a new handmade treasure. I’m always fascinated and I constantly think about the people that made the piece. How that necklace was created. What inspired the maker to produce that particular artwork that I now get to enjoy every day. What they thought as their hands moulded my new mug and what their creative space looks like.
It’s no surprise I’m a handmade lover (maybe even bordering on nerd…) but I don’t think I do enough to support the makers. Sure, I promote their products and try to spread the word but that doesn’t put food on the table.

My resolution – Buy More Handmade

I’ve given myself a budget that I need to spend each month. This can be used on one piece or shared between multiple makers.
I love this resolution as it helps the maker community and it also gives me an excuse to buy more handmade goodies. Perfect resolution if you ask me. 🙂

If you’re passionate about handmade too I urge you to take on this resolution. Set a budget that suits you and and your lifestyle and get buying. Life is expensive and if we want to keep these makers in their studios and not at a desk job we need to help them out! Yeah! 🙂
