  1. Yes, because none of us ever go into stores and think, hmmm, I could just go home and make that. Truth is, many people for whatever reason don’t craft and I am glad they can have cute items for their homes. The ones who want the “real deal” and not a paper-backed imitation are going to buy at a craft fair or vendor mall, just like those who want the real, handmade quality, designer items will buy them to wear if they have the money. Not everyone has that option.
    And spoiler alert: any time you think you have an original idea, go on Pinterest and look it up. It has burst my bubble on more than one occasion. 🙂

    1. “There is nothing new under the sun”, right Kimberly?…especially in a Pinterest world! How we put it together in our homes will be completely original though! We can make our homes unique and special with a combo of handcrafted and store-bought:)

    Yes, it’s discouraging to see what all the box stores have. Why keep crafting when it’s there for the purchase? But I love your encouragement. Thanks for putting this in words…..

      Glad you appreciated it, Melanie! I figured if I felt that way, I’m sure others do to!
