Why Handmade Matters – A Look at How We Handcraft Our Products

We live in a world where many things are mass produced. Not that there is anything necessarily wrong with that. It’s great that some things are manufactured in massive quantities in order to fill a worldwide demand for them.

Wait! You've Been Peeling Sticky Notes Wrong Your Entire Life

Think about how you use sticky-notes (aka “Post-It Notes”). You probably used one today or at least somewhat recently. Was it a sticky note from Ministry Ideaz? Regardless, you likely wrote on the Post-It, grabbed the bottom and then just ripped it upwards off the stack to stick it somewhere, right?

Wrong!

It turns out we’ve all been using Post-Its incorrectly this whole time.

Help for when a Loved One Is Ill

Illness can be an extremely stressful and terrifying experience. It’s often even worse when you are not the person who is sick. While you wait on doctors to run tests or sit by your loved one’s bedside, maintaining a constant vigil, you often feel helpless. There is little you can do to change the situation, or give the sick person relief from pain.
