I thought handmade is already defined lol etsy...

I though some might enjoy this new article. I also am posting it because I have to wonder is this their true response to handmade only or just coincidence?

What's interesting is the timing.
It's also funny how it seems there can never be a forum thread without controversy and or snarkiness over there.

Interesting, but had to laugh at the "time honored tradition of bedazzling."  I have this image of cave-womene bedazzling their furs to liven up long winters by the fire!

I haven't gone through the comments but wouldn't it have been easier to go through what is NOT considered handmade?  Oh boy.  :)

"Taking part A and joining it with part B to create item C is one of the simplest ways to create something new"

This is exactly the problem. They should be saying take part A and join it creatively and thoughtfully to part B to create C. Great article. Thanks for posting and the laugh of course

If I wasn't already married, I'd go for this guy, just for his sense of humor!
