BESTeam Feature Shop: From Shirlee

If you are wondering what the BESTeam (Boosting Etsy Shops Team) is, you can check out the blog here.

This week I am featuring the From Shirlee Etsy Shop which is run by Linda and her two daughters, Brittany and Ashley.  The shop name, From Shirlee, is in honor of Linda's mother, Shirlee, who taught Linda the secrets of being talented and crafty.  In turn, Linda taught these secrets to Brittany and Ashley.

The From Shirlee Shop has a lot of handmade items to choose from: amigurumi, crocheted blankets, cards, flower hair clips, scrapbook pages, magnet boards and more.

This is the Amigurumi Turtle Family.
Mommy turtle has three babies who love to climb all over her and ride on her back. All the family members are soft, squishy and huggable.  This family is soooo adorable!
If you keep a gratitude journal, you will probably love the Gratitude Journal to the left. There are random quotes throughout the book regarding gratitude and thanksgiving.  If you have no idea what a gratitude journal is, here is a little description:  Each day, you write down a few things in your journal that happened that day that you are grateful for. This helps you focus on the positive things in your life.

Here is a Christmas Countdown Magnet Board.
It is made from a baking sheet! How creative is that?  If you celebrate Christmas and have young children, this countdown board would be a great way for your children to keep track of  the days so they won't have to ask, "How many more days until Christmas?"  On December 1st, just hang the countdown board by its ribbon, and start using the countdown tags.

Linda's blog is Musings of a Domestic Goddess.  If you read some of Linda's blog posts, you will soon discover her light and airy sense of humor.  I missed my bedtime last night because I couldn't stop reading her blog.  Linda, Brittany and Ashley also have a From Shirlee Facebook Page.
