About Me

I'm Michelle from Shelly Creates It.

     My close friends & family call me 'Shelly.' I love to create things! I grew up in a small town, Leakey, Texas - north of Garner State Park.

     Growing up, my sister, parents, and I spent a lot of time 'imagining,' and creating ideas, games, crafts, and hobbies. We had limited resources, and oftentimes, instead of purchasing gifts, we handmade them! As I still do today!

     I want my products and resources to inspire others so they can enjoy handmade gifts too. With my guidance, we can create the perfect gift for your friends, family, co-workers, or even yourself!

     I currently live in San Antonio with my husband, and our German Shepherds, Captain and Simeon. I also teach 5th and 6th grade Special Education full time. My husband and I married in 2016, in the midst of his diagnosis of Gastroparesis. I also wanted to make screen-printed shirts for our wedding favors. Due to his illness, and the large wedding to-do's it was placed on the back burner.

        In 2017, he spent a total of 12 weeks in the hospital and finally had an Enterra Pacemaker placed that fall. The Enterra device is a pacer that shocks his stomach to work and pushes the food through. After the device placement, he wasn't healthy enough to continue working full time.

     In 2019, I decided to pick up screen printing again. I fine-tuned my skills and learned how to fulfill orders from my home. I've been able to include other services and products:
  • online memberships,
  • digital screen printing courses,
  • handmade snail-mail, and
  • self-published children's books.
     I've also grown to love making videos on YouTube! If you haven't noticed, I enjoy creating things and always want to learn something new. I also love anything & everything green. I hate coffee and never turn down tea! For me, chocolate is a necessity. I'm continuing to learn more musical skills in piano, banjo, violin, and harmonica.
