Handmade Fanatic

I think I've created a monster. Above is picture of my youngest who is becoming a wee bit of a handmade snob. While going through her Christmas presents she picked up a headband my Mum (know as Mama to the girls) gave her. She turned around a said "oh good, I think this is a handmade headband Mama gave me". Ha, too funny. This is the same child that at the end of the school year took a bag to school that she had hand sewn and took several orders from the other year ones. Nothing like a little enterprise.

The three girls all think its a bit of a great joke Made by Miffy's flyer that she gave us that said "Mall is a four letter word". The two little girls don't quite understand by my eldest gets a real kick out of it. It's great to see the next generation on handmade makers and consumers.

It's great isn't it! My kids love to go around saying "Mum made it"...unfortunately they even say it about stuff I didn't actually make, which is a little embarrassing....but at least they are getting the idea that stuff can be 'made' rather than always just 'bought'...:P

Love it! It's so fantastic to be passing on such important things to your girls - like Bec said, not everything has to be bought! I hope my kidlets learn to appreciate this more and more as they grow!

What a wonderful achievement to have your children appreciate handmade so much. How times have changed. I, to my shame, can remember as a little girl sulking during dress fittings by my professional dressmaker mother, proclaiming, "Why can't I have shop bought like everyone else?" I am pleased to say that my attitude did change as I got older!

Yay for handmade snobby little people! Your daughter has the right attitude thanks to you. I don't have children but my dog is a bit of a handmade snob. I purchased a cute handmade collar for her on Etsy last year & she's now needing a new one & is insisting on another Etsy piece. She is also insisting I stop buying her tinned dog food & packaged biscuits and that I cook for her instead. She is taking the whole handmade thing to the extreme. Grrrr ;D

Dogs these days are getting more and more demanding! That is very extreem behaviour. I wonder who the boss is in your house. I know my two dogs, two cats, one bird and three kids have me whipped good and proper.
