My 1st HANDMADE event

How is everyone!?…Guess what?…I participated in my first handmade event this past weekend!…I must say it was a GOOD time…..I originally thought I was going to be unable to partipate; I found out last minute sorta….I was contacted right before the event though and was invited to show off my goods!…..I met some of the craftiest people with some of the best personalities….I would do it all over again…even though my display could have used more “display”….LOL…I will surely be ready next time….My super supportive huny was there with me too and we met a buncha other cool people…(remember he paints so he was right at home too)…..My brother walked through the bazaar and it kinda sparked his old interests in drawing…Maybe we will all participate in the next one….The event was held in downtown Fresno at Fulton 55 and was coordinated by the members of The Soulflower Group….we had two floors full of super cool handmade goods; I believe there were 30 vendors! (I am so lucky to have been one huh?)…..the turnout exceeded expectations of the coordinators….Last count was past 850 people!….It was sooooo cool….I want to give a big, giant THANK YOU to Devoya Mayo as well (Devoya was the event coordinator and leading lady in The Soulflower Group and CEO of Hellacrafty which is some of her handmade creations)…..I love the handmade community and extremely proud to be a part of it!  You can take a look at the photos to get a glimpse of the event on my FB page…its kinda too many to upload here…….go to: to check out the photos……they hardly tell the story of the event though, because there was just so much more to see….Did I mention the event was 5 hours long with a different (super cool) DJ every hour and tasty spirits being served?!?!….AND my friend was there as well, her name is Markeys of One’tta Inspires selling beautiful handmade earrings!!!!!…I was lucky enough to get a pair and cant wait to wear em!…..Well I guess I have talked enough; LOL…until next time!

I sew a whole lot, I buy waaaaayyyyy too much fabric, and I have an obsession with books (especially sewing books and magazines), shoes, and fat quarters (and I don't even quilt)...Bags will always hold a special place in my heart; I still make em from time to time.....random fact about me**the pin cushions on the front page were made by my Mama and me....She made the yellow one and I whipped up the red one.....I can ramble all day about sewing and I feel a good ramble coming on sewwwww I'll stop here (pun intended).....Oh! My name is Christy but all my friends call me Chris!
