Review: Appreciating Handmade Art at Smidge
Smidge is a wonderful online blog that features the creators of handmade arts and crafts, as well as their works. Its author, Kat, strives to showcase unique and extraordinary handmade works to give exposure to talented individuals. It is also a great place for social networking and inspiration. The underlying theme is to support independent artists and their passion for craft.
Every week, Kat features a new theme; this week's theme is Handmade Toys Week. As consumers become increasingly dissatisfied with mass produced toys due to the numerous recalls from China, handmade toys are a safe and wonderful alternative. Some of the features (as pictured) include: paper doll kits, a giant messy mat, three bears fabric playhouse set, and a superhero cape.
Something else that might spark your interest - Kat also has handmade promotional giveaways for joining her mailing list. Definitely a great blog to check out!
