Our members are all over Instagram like hot syrup on a fluffy pancake! Since part of my job is to hang out on Instagram and take in all their wonderfulness (lucky me), I thought I'd share some of their latest handmade goodness so you don't miss out.
A few days ago, I told you that handmade is the new American Manufacturing. If you didn't believe me then, maybe you'll believe me now. Check out the awesome below.
