30 Days of Thankfulness: Day 12

Day 12:
 
Handmade Community
 

I am thankful that there are a lot of people that appreciate handmade goods.  I think there is something very unique and about handmade items and gifts.  You can buy gifts anywhere, and in a world of mass manufacturing and big box retailers, receiving a gift made by hand is so much nicer and more personal than something that's one of ten thousand stamped out of a machine.  Plus, when you support a member of the handmade community, you are most likely helping your neighbor, a stay at home mom, or a college student in building their small business that helps to support their family.  The handmade movement, I believe, is still on the upswing, thanks to blogs and websites like etsy and big cartel.  And I am very thankful for that!
