Rickson and the Handmade Division Team

Where do you aspire to be in 5 years? The December Talk About Blog.

December. Coming to the close of 12 fantastic months with the Handmade Division Team.

Such a fantastic group of artists, and friends.

It has been my (Andes Cruz)’s privilege and honour to work with this group, and to promote them.

I am personally handing off the torch of Curating this team, to one of our amazing members, Rickson. I’m very excited to pass the torch, and see what new vision, ideas and energy Rickson will bring to the team.

I hope you will continue to follow and support all these amazing artists on their own blogs, websites, and fanpages. And thank you all for your support for us in our ongoing journey….
