My name is Michele and I live in Utah. I am a former elementary school teacher who has decided to stay home, raise my family, and run my little bag business called "shellybean." I design, create and sell my products both on Artfire and from my home studio. Most of my designs are bags named after pivotal women in my life. I've been married forever and a day to an amazing, hard working man, who keeps coming home with a smile on his face; all the while encouraging me always to "keep doing what I do". I'm blessed to have three pretty fantastic kids call me "mom." On the side (and don't all women have a few of those,) I tutor children and write a blog about the goings-on at my house.
