Finding Inspiration in Handmade

I know it's a small picture, but here's a current snapshot of my Handmade board over at Pinterest where I've been collecting tutorials of things I'm hoping to make one day.

Ever since I discovered the world of handmade, I have been in awe of all the incredibly talented people out there who create such beautiful things with their own two hands.

Right away, I wanted to be a part of that. I love that "handmade" represents hard work and creativity. I enjoy working with my hands. And I love beautiful things. Trouble is, I'm not very good at putting the two together. But seeing other people's work inspires me to give myself a chance to try and make something.

If they can do it, why can't I, right?
