Celebrate the Makers! National Handmade Day 2023!

We invite you to celebrate National Handmade Day on April 1st, wherever you are, however you’d like to get crafty, or however you’d like to shop handmade.  But if you’re near Boerne, we would LOVE for you to join us at our shop!  For special deals, crafting, shopping, and celebrating….






I’m Amy.  My biggest titles are “mom” and “maker.”  But I’m also a chef, driver, photographer, developer, tester, bottler, labeler, social media manager, store owner, maid, pet caretaker, co-op director, blogger, order fulfillment associate, gardener, bestie, delivery person, and more!  😉

20 years ago- I became a MOMMA, and am now the mom to two young men.  All of these years, I’ve wanted nothing but the best for my boys. I’ve changed what we eat and what products we use.  I’ve tried hard to eliminate processed foods and toxins from our home.  And as a single mom for the last 8 years, I’ve wanted nothing more but to be around as much as I can for the boys, and to set a good example for them.  So I started a business!

9 years ago- I became a MAKER.  Of natural, non-toxic, pampering, sudsy, moisturizing, detoxifying, eco-friendly, cleansing, and hydrating home, bath, and body products.  To make a difference for our home, our health, our planet, for my new customers.  It’s been an amazing almost-decade of changing people’s skin!

5 years ago- I became a FOUNDER.  I founded National Handmade Day.  To celebrate makers!  To bring awareness to handmade.  To cheer on the artisans and artists.  To shine a light on the quality and uniqueness of homemade goods.  Viva la handmade!

3 years ago- I became a DIRECTOR.  I started up Handmade on Main.  A boutique handmade shop and a maker co-op.  To give a home base to some of my favorite makers.  To give them exposure, love, direction, wholesale and market opportunities, community over competition, and sometimes just a listening ear.  To give them a space to have hands-on workshops.  To provide them an online presence.  To help their business grow.

For National Handmade Day, I’m:
-Having a sidewalk sale.  All of my “vintage” t-shirts will be out in front of the shop, as part of a sidewalk sale.  They’ll also be marked down on the website.  My four oldest tee designs.  Just $5 each!!!
-Having a sale sale.  The more you spend, the more you save!!!
-Hosting a make-and-take craft.  Melt, mix, and pour your own lotion tin.  With your choice of essential oils.

“Hi there! I’m Anastasia and I started my maker’s journey in 2019 with my passion for stickers and my desire to help teachers. As a teacher myself, I know how difficult the job can be. From daily after-school meetings to constantly changing rotation schedules, it often feels impossible to remember everything. I started my business making planner stickers that help teachers stay on top of their crazy schedules. First, for Art and other Rotation teachers, like me, and later for all teachers. I now include waterproof vinyl stickers for teachers so they can showcase their unique skills on their tumblers, phone cases, laptop covers, and more. I create all the designs and cut every sticker myself in San Antonio, TX!”
