Created to Create
There is something truly special about the process of taking raw materials and transforming them into something beautiful, functional, and meaningful. It’s a story of faith, joy, and wonder!
It’s a pursuit that allows me to express my creativity and bring unique pieces into existence. It allows me to pour my heart, care, and personal touch into each creation. Every product holds a piece of my heart. It’s a labor of love that fills me with a sense of inspiration and gratitude.
And for this, I praise Him. “Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of lights, with whom there is no variation or shadow due to change.” (James 1:17)
EXPLORING THE DISTINCTIVE
QUALITIES OF HANDMADE CREATIONS
Handmade items hold a certain uniqueness...
Handmade items hold a certain uniqueness that cannot be replicated by mass-produced products. They carry the thumbprint of human touch, the mark of individuality, the story of the creative journey, and the overflowing love from the creator. When I create by hand, I am honoring the traditions and skills passed down through generations. I am a part of a rich lineage of artisans and craftspeople who have contributed to the biblical and cultural heritage of our world.
Exodus 35:30-35 is a passage that describes the skilled artisans and craftsmen who contributed their talents to the construction of the Tabernacle. It highlights the importance of their craftsmanship and how their skills were valued in the service of God–from Him, through Him, and to Him are all things. (Romans 11:36)
I am created to create because of Him, and I believe that the act of curating handmade items is not just about the end product; it’s about the process itself. It’s about immersing oneself in the moment, embracing the therapeutic benefits of creating and finding solace in the creative flow. All of this is from the Giver of good and perfect gifts. Through my handmade creations, I aim to bring joy, inspiration, and a sense of connection to those who appreciate and cherish them. Each item tells a story and becomes a part of someone’s life journey.
“For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them.” (Ephesians 2:10)
This verse serves as a reminder that we are God’s handiwork, created with purpose, and designed to engage in good works. Handmade creations are an expression of our own creativity and a reflection of God’s creativity working through us to bring joy and inspiration to others. So, from the perspective of someone who loves to create handmade items, I invite you to join me in celebrating the beauty of craftsmanship, the power of creativity, and the pure delight of bringing something new into the world with our own hands.
