handmade with pride

Someone once explained the difference between "homemade" and "handmade".  Homemade is something your grandmother love because you made it, not because its any good.  Remember those cookies you baked and forgot to put sugar in them?  But your grandmother ate every last one with a smile on her face.

Handmade denotes craftsmanship.  It means someone took the time to use the sense of touch combined with experience to make sure that if feels the way it is supposed to when its goes from their hands to yours.
