Hello Everyone!

I am a newcomer on iCraft, and am enjoying the website's emphasis on "handmade" crafts .

For many years I have been on Etsy, as a crochet swimsuit maker . Recently, I have noticed that there is more "mass" products made in China or other overseas countries being sold on Etsy, or through an Etsy seller located in other parts of the world (USA, for example).

Remember an episode in 30 Rock , where Kenneth knits a bikini for his grandma? I thought that something like that only happens on TV. Well, that's until my recent visit to the hospital, where I found myself sitting next to a man who was crocheting a huge blanket out of a basket.

As a greeting card maker, I encourage people to hand-write the messages inside of cards. Not many people like the look of their own handwriting but, like it or not, it's part of who you are. Handwriting is as unique to you as your voice or your fingerprint. It's instantly recognizable.

Today, I'm going to give you three good reasons to learn to love your handwriting and why it's an important... Read more
