Makers Market

I often return home from a trade show with this terrible internal battle happening. You see, I have this insane desire to make things, to figure things out, and work with my hands. However, walking around market can be a bit disheartening even for the most talented of makers. Everything you could possibly imagine (and probably some you wouldn't want to) is there. Why do something that is probably already being done?
But then I remember the handful of artists that I meet while I am there that just exude excitement about what they are doing and in turn make me excited about it too! Those are the companies and people I want to support and I hope that someday down the road if I ever discover what it is I want to do (you know... besides everything) they will be there cheering me on too. Here's to 2013 and figuring it all out.

Next week I head to New York for NYIGF so be sure to follow me on Instagram for all of my favorite finds!
