I never knew why I was so attached to everything I sew or any of my other crafts nor why the same happens with anything handmade by someone else and given me as a gift.
I always felt guilty about getting rid of something homemade. Did you ever feel like that?
Well, last night I was reading a chapter from the Upside of Irrationality by Dan Ariely. He is a professor of Behavioral Economics who tries to explain his research in very simple and approachable language (I am not an economist myself!)
So, I finally found an explanation of what was experiencing… it seems I am not the only one.
If you are interested to find out what the Ikea effect is… watch the video and let me know what you think.
So, sorry for not posting about a project I made. I thought it was somewhat sewing related, that’s why I decided to share it.
Have a great week!
