Buy Handmade


Maybe you've received a handmade gift from someone at some point in time, or maybe you've given someone a gift that we crafted with our own hands. At the very least, you've walked past a storefront window and seen handmade items for sale. In a world that seems to be dominated by cookie-cutter commercial goods, handmade items are a fresh way to appreciate your friends, family, and life in general on a more personal level. As an artist, I can definitely identify with a handmade approach towards life.

Well, today I found this website and decided to make my pledge (although at the time of this screenshot, my pledge hasn't shown up yet!)...





At the very least, check out the site and keep it in the back of your mind this holiday season!

Hey - fellow HOWie here. I was just glancing in your blog & noticed that you too have a link to Anthony Bourdain's blog. I read his all the time! I love that guy! I wish I could have met him when he was here in DC over the summer.

I'm a huge fan of "No Reservations". I think what I like most about him is that he has such a down to earth attitude about people, culture, and life in general. At the end of the day, he knows what's important and what's not.
