"... the painter who scribes Sketch 42 had made a really smart comment about theTo Buy or DIY essay that I wrote last week and that got me thinking.
She said, “until recently, all human beings had to make things for themsel[ves], and now I think we are seeing a backlash toward the over industrialized, computerized world we live in. I think people want to reconnect with the art of using their hands to make things. Just look at cooking…after the age of microwaving everything came the resurgence of gourmet, artisanal foods. I think crafting is just a natural part of the human spirit and its only now that we are calling it DIY.”
