I met Chris aka crafty gurll on Craftster quite awhile back. She is always friendly and fun, and has so many crafty talents.
An Ohio native, she is a member of Cleveland Handmade
Chris organized her first craft show, Crafty Goodness, just last month! Hurray Chris! That is fantastic!
If you have never visited Chris's Etsy shop, CMS Designs, you MUST stop by and browse her gorgeous stoneware pottery. Her designs are very organic and beautiful, often incorporating nature elements into her work. With most of her handcrafted pottery costing less than $20, it is a great place to do some Handmade Holidays shopping on a budget!
Here are a few of my favorites from CMS Designs
Set of SIX stoneware appetizer/dessert plates, each one lovingly handstamped with a unique pattern and glazed in bright, happy colors.
Beautiful sushi serving set for 2. Includes chopstick rests in the shape of gingko leaves!
Leaf shape soap dish/spoon rest. This wonderful piece is only SIX DOLLARS! She even sells handmade soap, so you can complete the gift all in one place!
Chris has a lovely blog, Crafty Goodness . Pop by and see what she has been up to.
Happy Handmade Holidays!
