My name is Linda Lewis. I had a website called Creative Artworks! for about 17 years which celebrated handmade, hand painted, personalized items plus fine art. My son created my website in 2000 with only my own work. Then I discovered I could show the work of other artists without increasing my costs, so I opened the site to others. I closed the website in June of 2017 because it was time.
I now list my own work on HandmadeHavenByLinda on Etsy.
Handmade is superior to any off the shelf, squeezed-out-of-a-tube product, no matter how nice the latter is. “Handmade” is created by a real person who stands behind his or her work. Many times it can be personalized for added value.
Technology is great, but we should never be in such a hurry that we bypass real greeting cards made by hand one at a time; stationery or note cards that have been hand painted; glassware for a particular season, holiday, or life event personalized by the artist; items for our kitchen or dining room that will make eating an event; original paintings or photographs that will transform the focus of a room, showing our passions.
I love sharing wonderful photographs and art work that I find. I have a very eclectic blog, sharing jokes, funny pictures, favorite quotes and more.
