While this year has been full of challenges, artisans around the world forge ahead with grace, happiness, and creativity.
Some have discovered unexpected talents. Some have embraced family in new ways. Some have simply begun to notice the small details that make life exceptional. In countless ways, they remind us that beauty and love thrive in difficult times.
“This was a difficult year, but we learned about what matters most. My wife, my son, my parents. Every day I play with my son. I spend more time with my wife. We have learned to be better parents together. We may be in lockdown, but we are open to love. The borders were closed, but Novica made sure our worry dolls continued to delight our loyal customers. It is a chapter in our story we will never forget.”
“For my family, stay-at-home orders have allowed us to develop gifts and talents that were there, but hidden. My daughters got involved in my work, offering their collaboration, and I have encouraged them to develop their own ideas. Entrepreneurship has brought out the best in us. In the midst of this crisis, we have found opportunities for growth and development.”
Margarita and Martha
“In spite of the challenges this year, we maintain faith and hope. We look for inspiration everywhere. We take walks in the parks and listen to the birds singing, we stop to feel, we clear our minds of the negative and go to work with new, fresh ideas.
“We have been part of Novica for 14 years, and you have allowed us to open workshops and continue to employ mothers and families. Every day, we realize how strong we are and how far we can go.”
