This is officially my first blog! I am excited to bring news, information, new products and just fun to my followers. I really believe that there is a vast amount of handmade products that are made by very talented individuals and they deserve to be discovered. Handmade is about someone's home, life and creativity. Handmade is personal, unique and in no way corporate! Which I think are many of the reasons people are paying attention and saying that they in turn deserve more. They deserve the personal attention you get from a small shop, the custom orders and knowing that they are helping someone else's dreams to be fulfilled. The shops are made and owned by people who love what they create and are waiting to share with people who love their products.

I am an Etsy shop owner myself and I will be showcasing some of my fellow Etsy shops. I started Etsy as a way to remain creative while living a busy life with a hard working husband and two beautiful young children. My sister also felt the creative drain and we decided to do this together as a team. There are many others like us and more starting all the time. I think its great to be able to be a part of a handmade network but also meet the people behind the amazing products.

A Handmade Revolution is about wanting and standing up for more! As a consumer more and more we are being reminded that its up to us to decide where our purchases come from. Handmade is not handmade by employees in another country with no connection to the founder of the company. It may even be made by someone closer to you than you even think! It's about choosing to buy what makes you feel good and recognizing the hard working people behind handmade.

I look forward to showing you who and what I find with future blogs on A Handmade Revolution!
