Why I Buy Handmade

I collect little Santas....little,under 5". Yes, I have bought many at craft shows but many more in retail stores. This was before the internet availability of so many handmade goodies.
I just received this from Creations By Gena

In EVERY way, it is adorable and perfect from the bell on the velvet hat to each strand of his tea stained beard. In fact, I just ordered a 2nd as a little gift. No where is there a little tag that says "Made in China". In fact, it comes from a neighboring state!
I know I made Gena happy with my purchase and yet she elated me and I am trying with my feedback, forum posting and this blog entry to let her know how happy I am....and further convinced how wonderful a handmade purchase can be. Thank you, Gena.

awwwwww Barbra,

I am deeply touched with your response over this little Santa Ornie. It was made with Love (as with everything I do) and you are the absolute reason why I do what I do. I completely enjoy painting and making crafts as it brings me such joy with each little thing I create and when the end result is like such, I know I did my job; To share the love and make you smile. :) That in it self is the best satisfaction to me and I am glad you love your little Santa.

Thank YOU, again, so much.
Smiles!
Gena
