Ode to Handmade

I got this Ode to Handmade from Michele of Tierra Verde Handmade Soaps, who ran across it on Facebook.  Whoever wrote it couldn’t have expressed more perfectly the heart and soul of an artist or a soapmaker.

“When buying from an artist/maker you’re buying more than just an object/painting. You are buying hundreds of hours of failures and experimentation. You are buying days, weeks, months of frustration and moments of PURE JOY. You aren’t just buying a thing; you’re buying a piece of heart, part of a soul, a moment of someone’s life. Most importantly you’re buying an artist more time to do something they are passionate about.”
