I have been featured


I received this email from an intern at Etsy.


I’m Katie, the intern here at the Etsy blog.

Congratulations! I’m not sure if you’ve seen it yet, but your item has been selected for our Pet item poll on the Storque.

You can check out the poll here: http://www.etsy.com/voter_list.php?ref=voter&room_id=44

Make sure to spread the word, blog the link, and let people know about it so that they can vote for your item. The winner will be featured on the Etsy blog!


Out of the millions of items, I was blown away that my Memory Box was chosen to be voted on by the Etsy community.

This Memory Box is of Raggs and Devon, 2 of my dogs that are waiting for me at Rainbows Bridge.

I wanted to show for Mom’s day that even if you are a Mom’s of four legged children, like I am they can give you something to smile about.

If you have not been to Etsy yet, it is a must.  A web site dedicated to all things hand made.  You will be fascinated at the amazing talent that there is to be found.

I have a store there, that is where you can purchase from me if you are not in the area of my studio.



Fall is around the corner

Hello to All,

Greetings from Shandell’s. There is a chill in the air and fall is just around the corner. I was reviewing my list of fall projects and updating my website, I came across a picture of a tissue box that I did for Elaine, the daughter of my friend Colleen Dealy.

She has been bugging me to add this to my website and I did just that, last night. Memory Tissue Box was so much fun to make for her. A great way to give a memory, that will be used and loved. It will always bring a smile to whom ever receives it.
Shandell’s is joined Poppytalk for it’s fall market. What an amazing group of artists to be side by side with. Please take a look and enjoy your time there.

Lots more to be added to Shandell’s this fall.
