To make or to buy? Why we would rather make it!

There comes a sense of pride when you accomplish something whether it be big or small. Making things. That’s what we’re all about at Craft-Tea box. It’s much bigger than that though.

Look and feel – Sure, you could buy something that is already made but most of the time, it doesn’t look that genuine. One example is the super popular wood signs that everyone is displaying in their homes. The prefabricated versions of those signs are usually made with a pressed wood and the letters are printed on. They just don’t have that “down home” feel to them.

Conversation – Admit it. You love when someone comes to your house or you give them a gift and they say, “Where did you get that?”, “How did you make that?”, or my personal favorite, “Can you show me how or can you make me another for a friend?”

 
 Nice heartfelt and happy sign!

Learning New Things – If we aren’t constantly learning no matter what the subject, we aren’t growing. Learning new skills is vital to keep our brains functioning at peak performance. Learning how to create and put our imaginations and ideas to work and then seeing those ideas hang on our walls, light up others’ faces, or even sold gives us a warm sense of accomplishment.

We are the makers, the crafters, the dreamers, and the thinkers!
