Family Affair - A BESTeam Feature

Some families hand down heirlooms, some hand down a distinctive physical feature, and others, like today's featured shop, hand down creative talent. Stopping by FromShirlee, you'll find this story...

Once upon a time, there was a woman named Shirlee. She was very beautiful and talented.

Shirlee was the mother of a girl named Linda. She taught Linda all the secrets of being talented and crafty, and Linda came to excel at them.

Linda grew up and became the mother of two girls named Brittany and Ashley. She raised them in the grand tradition of arts and crafts.

Together, they decided to create an Etsy shop. Between the three of them they had all the fantastic talent of crafting stacked to the nines.

And so this family affair was born! Mom Linda, a self-proclaimed domestic goddess and aficionado of all things crafty, but particularly paper crafts, has joined forces with her two daughters - Brittany and Ashley, to offer a wonderful collection of quality handcrafted items encompassing a diverse array of media and form. Their artistry includes paper crafting, crocheting, fabric crafts, and embroidery and their shop is filled with wonderful scrapbooking themes, amigurumi, accessories, home decor items, and greeting cards. Here are just a few items to show you a small sampling of the diversity you'll find in their adorable and happiness inspiring products!

Friends are Flowers in the Garden of Life. This oh-so-true sentiment is beautifully expressed on this Friends are Flowers decorative pillow featuring a rainbow of floral appliques with hand tied buttons and bows. Wouldn't this make a wonderful Christmas present for a best friend in your life?

Meet Polly the Arigurumi octopus. She is a Polly-pus. This adorable crocheted creature from the deep is sure to delight your baby or toddler and provide a wonderful opportunity for safe and imaginative play!

Capture a unique visual memory of that special moment in time with Flowers and Rick Rack, a premade Scrapbook page set. Feminine and versatile, this ready to use scrapbooking page set can be used in virtually any orientation you wish, and the floral and trim components add a special 3-dimensional flair.

The weather outside may be frightful, but when you welcome family and friends into your home with this darling Snowman Welcome Wall Hanging, you know the mood will instantly be delightful. Using embroidery and applique techniques, the crafty crew at FromShirlee have created a wonderful three-dimensional piece that is sure to be a holiday favorite for years to come!

Like Linda and her girls, I like the idea of having greeting cards on hand for those times that you really want to send a card but either don't have the time to run to the card shop, or you simply prefer the uniqueness of handmade designs to the mass produced designs. Here's the perfect solution! A variety of cover sentiments along with blank interiors allow you to use this Set of 8 Greeting Cards for any number of occasions and you know that you'll be sending the very best when you personalize the card with your own hand-written message!

I'm sure you'll agree that this shop is a wonderful place to take advantage of the wonderful legacy of creative talent that came FromShirlee.
