I’ve had an amazing time writing this blog over the past 7 months, and I thank each and every one of you who takes the time to read. I love comments too, but clicking through to check out the featured artists is all I really ask of you.
The goal of this site is to shed light on the amazing work being done by independent artists, crafters and artisans all over the world, and to encourage folks to think twice about big box stores and name brands before shopping. I have lots of plans for 2009, but first I want to thank you all for a fabulous 2008 :)
As a Christmas present to myself, I contacted the very talented (and whip-smart hilarious) Laurie Smithwick of LEAP Design, and Try Handmade now sports lovely badges for your enjoyment and distribution. Here is the code for one, but there are several badges to choose from.
And for those of you who aren’t in(s)ane like me, this 8 second video shows where I got the title of this post. One of the very funniest movies ever :)
(Oh yeah, I know I said I was done posting for 2008 yesterday, but I couldn’t help myself!)
