I began my day today by mulling over the concept of time. It means so much and yet so little!
I launched Let’s Curate on June 1st and today marks 6 months since it took flight. But it feels like a lifetime since I first conceived the idea, nurtured it, and brought it to fruition. And simultaneously, it is fresh because there is so much more to do and the road ahead is long and inviting!
But at this very moment, I take stock of the 24 (soon to be 25) wonderful artisans Let’s Curate now represents from 18 countries around the world!

Our team has also expanded from 1 to 4 and I thank my teammates, Keely, Hannah and Sydney for playing key roles in building the momentum.
Our objective for the coming year is not just to expand the network but also promote the extraordinary handmade creations of our artisans who are either reviving traditional arts and crafts or putting a unique contemporary spin on it.
I am filled with pride and gratitude for this opportunity to do my bit to bring them to the forefront and hope to continue receiving love and support from the Let’s Curate community!
