An Ode to Collectors - Thank You for Buying Handmade!

As the holidays approach, and the creative season gets busier and busier, it's important for artists to take a breath, and pause long enough to express our gratitude to those of you who enable us to Do What We Do.

So this post is for collectors.

Every time you make a purchase from an individual artist or crafter, you're buying something infused with love and care. You're choosing a one of a kind treasure made from the heart, something mindfully created, something personal and meaningful. You're helping an artist live their dream, and you're helping to support an individual rather than a large corporation.

You're celebrating creativity, and you're supporting an economic model that rewards imagination, initiative, hard work, and self reliance. And you're making a direct connection with an individual, the way purchases and transactions used to be made. You're enabling someone's vision to become a reality, and that's priceless.

So THANK YOU to all the collectors, and art supporters. And THANK YOU to all of you who are buying handmade this holiday season. As an artist, I appreciate it more than words can say. It warms my heart, and I am truly blessed to know each and every one of you.

Much love,
♥ Carolee

Hi Gorgeous, long time no see... As a collector of OOAK Halloween Art Work & losing count after 1000 pieces ~ You're Welcome! That includes a few vintage Halloween collectibles too. I'm in the process of shopping for several 6' x 6' lighted showcases to display all the beautiful art work.

I bought some easels to display your lovely bowls, lazy susans & tavern signs...

Carolee you always have Enchanting Creations & PICS. Hope all is well & life has been good to you & yours.

It's my favorite time of year when magic is in the air. So I wanted to invite you to TODAYSGOLD ANNUAL HAUNTED HALLOWEEN PARTY & GIVEAWAY. Hope you'll fly by & say hi & maybe win Princess Diana's Wedding Ring. This is a Triple Celebration Giveaway because I've been blogging four years now & over 100,000 visitors have flown by for real!

So put on your pointy hat & fly by my party when you can. Hauntingly Yours With XOs,
Lyndy & All My Black Cat Familiars
