I am in love with this
I love the recent rebirth of handmade and human-made in our culture. It may just be the circles I go round in, but I'm noticing a lot more emphasis on the fact that an actual human you can speak to has made the items we use. Mass-produced perfection holds less and less value. In this vein, Lisa Hannigan is doing some really terrific things. Her video, music and art (including hand stitched original album art and notes) have been making waves in blogland, on NPR, and on TV lately. Beautiful music. Beautiful art. All hand made.
