Welcome to Flyghte! A blog that celebrates all things handmade, handcrafted, and handwritten.
Think back to a moment when you’ve given someone a handwritten note and suddenly their face lights up. That’s what we’re trying to achieve here. Providing just that extra bit of happiness to someone’s day. I truly believe that it’s the little things in life that make all the difference – and if you’re here on this site, I’m sure that you feel the same.
I’m Shermaine and I created Flyghte once I noticed those little moments of joy that appeared whenever I gave someone a handcrafted gift. In a digital world flooded with 5-second birthday wishes on Facebook, receiving a handwritten birthday card is like cookies & cream ice cream on a hot day. Letters illuminated on a screen don’t feel quite the same as memories jotted down on pieces of paper. Creating something that is handmade is one of the few things left in this world that cannot be copied or faked – a unicorn in a world of horses.
A little bit about me. If you take a sneak peek into my life, chances are that I’ll probably be smiling, scribbling doodles in my notebook with my beloved Microns, or lying in bed in a constant search for inspiration and visual eyecandy. I love creating cards for friends and family that celebrate the special moments in life – be it a birthday, a simple congratulations, or a new baby on the way. I am usually the loudest one in a room, but still find that words are always better expressed when written down. Even if you spend hours on creating something handmade, that laugh, smile or joyful exclamation makes it all worth it in the end.
While reading this blog, I hope that you will be inspired to create things for others and for yourself. You are welcome into this world with open arms and I am so glad to have you here!
