What formerly was “Arts and Crafts” has morphed into The Maker Movement.  And its seems as if more opportunities exist to monetize than ever before.  And the Internet is at the center of the movement that has spawned a generation of 21st Century entrepreneurs.

“With so many people able to freely share ideas and spread inspiration
across the web, makers are forming communities of their own, and more
people around the world are becoming influenced to be makers. Etsy
now has over one million artisan sellers who have created handmade
products to be sold on the site. (The site also did nearly a billion
dollars in revenue last year, clearly indicating there is also extremely
high demand for these handmade goods.)”
