It's February and as many of us know, this is the month designated as Black History Month. Naturally, I along with several others throughout the nation and world understand the importance of honoring our culture and heritage throughout the year, however we can certainly appreciate the vision held by Carter G. Woodson when he started what was initially called "National Negro Week" back in 1926.
People from everywhere celebrate this month in various ways, and one way in which The New Handmade Collective is celebrating is by doing what we do best: showcasing our many talents! (Well, perhaps what we do second best...after creating, of course ;-)
If you're on Pinterest, please check out our Black History Month Pop Up Shop and help spread the word about the fantastic work that I and so many other artisans contribute. It's as simple as re-pinning what you see and like!
