Quote of the Year: Make your uniqueness tangible

Blogger, writer and crafty podcaster Sister Diane of CraftyPod blog recently introduced (together with some of her friends) the very cool site Making Meaning. It is fabulous, as it covers many of the subjects I’m interested in and write about too.

Making meaning

It’s a very timely launch if you ask me, as so many of us are not only creating but searching for meaning in what we create and in our lives. In one of her articles, called Mine all mine I found what I think it’s the “Quote of the Year” around here, it just explains it everything perfectly;

I think that when you relax into the experience of making (whether it’s crafting or any other kind), you’re able to take a little piece of your uniqueness, and make it tangible. And in a world where it can be tough to be unique, that’s an awfully powerful experience. No wonder we feel so attached to things we make – they’re living proof that there is something colorful and interesting inside us after all.Sister Diane
