********************************************************

I bet everyone understood this concepts before I even had the epiphany, but have you ever wondered why someone likes a particular something? Do we all have the same tastes, I think not, but I think some of us are very similar sometimes.

That being said, I personally believe that we put a little of ourselves in our work and what we do. Whether we know we are doing it or we do it subconsciously, I think our work is a reflection of ourselves.

Now my question to you is this.

When we are attracted to one person's handmade, artistic, photographed, or crafted creation, are we really attracted to them as well? I use the term attracted as strictly non-sexual, fyi.

What I mean by attracted is, if we meet on the street, would we strike up a conversation or if we meet at a local gathering such as a craft fair, would we become fast friends?

I can tell you that a lot of the people I have met on Etsy are wonderful people and I have met my share of friends from there. Going back, I have looked into their shops and have been either fascinated or captivated by their merchandise.

Quite interesting. This is something that I will have to consider further.

Tell me what you all think on the matter!

Very interesting concept. I never thought of it that way, but it sure makes sense.

Whoa, I've never thought about it in that way, but if that were the case I should be in love with a lot of people like musicians, actors, actresses, and artists. I could go on forever. Now I don't like girls in a sexual manner of speaking (just wanted to clarify that), but there are many artists out there that I can tell their style and I immensely admire there talent. So I don't know I'll have to think about this one.

Hi Kayla, just dropped by to wish you a Happy New Year!!! Interesting post. I'll have to look at some of my favorite artist and think about the concept and how it applies to me...great thought.
