What making art is all about

October 11, 2011

What I love about selling handmade is the knowledge that my work is appreciated. I'm very shy, so finding etsy really gave me the opportunity to do what I still dare not do in my offline life - put up my work for consideration and ask people 'do you like it?'

A few days ago Alison bought this Kissin Bears canvas papercut from my crafts shop. She shared her reason why on her blog The Knotty Bride, and I am really moved by it. It seems silly, but I didn't think my work really meant something for people, could make an impact. I'm glad to realize it does.
