For The Love of Handmade

Handmade and indie businesses are very close to Blogtacular’s heart. Not only is Blogtacular itself a small independent business, but in their “day jobs” both Kats have been working  in and with small businesses for years. Kat G is an author and photographer in the craft industry and Kat M is the former features editor at Bambino Goodies and is sought after by independent businesses looking to make an impact online through her professional work.

And so, it was with huge excitement that Kat M became a guest curator for the Etsy Blog last week. Trawling through Etsy, Kat pulled together her favourite handmade items in a collection for the site.

You can see her full collection here.

In honor of her curatorship, our Blogtacular chat on the 2nd of April was all about the ins and outs, ups and downs of blogging handmade. We loved hearing about people’s first handmade items and how the love of making brings so many people together. You can read the full storify here.

Don’t forget to join our #blogtacular twitter chat every Wednesday at 9pm UK time.  We are also still accepting applications for indie stall horders.
