October has when and truly landed, I have been tempted to put the central heating on, but I have stopped myself and I'm going to stick it out for as long as possible because once it's on, it will be on for a few months now.
A lovely Instagram friend of mine posted that today is World Handmade Day. A celebration of all amazing and creative designers. I love that there is a day for this, highlighting how wonderful it is to either be a maker or someone who supports a maker and get something special to treasure.
I have written about the virtues of handmade before, and it really is true. Sometimes we think that buying something expensive or buying from a chain is going to be better, but that is not always the case. How lovely is it to think a piece of jewellery has been made for you, by someone who loves what they do and has put their heart and soul into it. I think that gives a piece extra special meaning.
I'd love you to follow me on the Social Media platforms I use:
Until next time,
Take care and have fun
