“Chrisy’s Creations” Ocali Days

It’s always so much fun to meet the wonderful people that come to the Festivals to demonstrate their art or to sell their creations. I met the neatest lady named Chrisy with an amazing booth.

I admired some cute little leather bags she had made and she asked me if I would rather have one with a strap? OH YES! So while we walked over to buy Kettle Corn to take home and watch the Dallas Cowboys WIN…she sewed a strap on this beautiful aqua leather bag.

My hubby was sweet and picked out a pair of earrings for me, too.

I love Cowboy football and hubby even made NY chili! (maybe even better than TX chili!!! heehee)

I know I am SO spoiled!

Chrisy doesn’t have a website or blog but I have her email addy.

Her card says, ‘Native art Aussie style’!

Have you ever seen anything like this?

Oh how I LOVE it!

I LOVE that aqua bag!! Lucky you. You should tell Chrisy to open an Etsy shop so more of us could see her work. Talented lady.

Diane, I enjoyed seeing all the goodies you got at the festival. I love those art/crafts festivals! The handbag is adorable and being that I enjoy making my own jewelry I can appreciate the handmade jewelry all the more! As a fellow blogger I find it very fitting that she included the notepad and pens, great for making a quick note to blog later. ;)
Hugs!
