Handmade anything is appealing to me, whether made by a crack artisan, an octogenarian grandmother or a young child. I especially appreciate when the “hand” is obvious, the imperfections are perceptible and the heart and soul are plainly woven into it.

DIYs proliferate and I’m grateful for it. Here are a few of my own DIYs – and, along the way, I’ll add others I admire:
