If you think about it, art is embedded to our nature. God built us to His image, making us appreciate beauty and the world He created and placed us in.
Most of you are familiar with Etsy that I mentioned in my previous post. Last week I have also written this post about my maternal family's approach to handicraft and at the end I have posted a link to the on-line community of Artella Land.
Only a century ago womenfolk were creating beautiful embroideries and lovely clothes and beautified their homes with their own hands. And primitive people never shied away from carving and painting. So why let ourselves believe that only the work of a few well networked people who sell their products to a few thousand around the globe, are allowed to be called art?
Let me tell you some more about it. Artella is the brain child of Marney Makridakis who, back in 2002 had the idea to start a magazine for artists and writers.The result is Artella Magazine, a playland of people and tools which has grown into an on-line community.
Why don't you head over, subscribe to their free e-zine, and have fun?
Oh and make sure you stop by soon for a fantastic seasonal giveaway!
