BESTeam Feature - Gmaellen

This week I am featuring Gmaellen.  A cute little shop filled with wonderful crochet items!  Hello, and thank you for visiting my little shop, which is growing every day. So, come back often to see what's new.

 Ellen loves being crafty and creative and keeping busy outside of work.  She really enjoy creating things that are not only nice looking, but are functional.  She has tried and enjoyed many different types of crafts, but always stay with her old friend crochet!  Some of her fondest memories are of watching both of her grandmothers creating so many beautiful things when she was growing up. They both gave her so much inspiration.
She, like many other fiber-holics (including myself!) are fond of the expression 'So much little time!' The possibilities are absolutely limitless!  And Ellen (and I) want to explore them all!

Here are some of the things that caught my eye while browsing through her shop....

As I have just become an aunt again to a little preemie baby boy....and another sister is about to have another baby boy....I couldn't help but notice this baby boy blanket!  As a knitter, I don't have the patience to make large projects like baby blankets...but if I was better at crochet, I hear it works up much faster and maybe my new little nephews would get a baby blanket :-)
Round Baby Blue Crochet Baby Afghan with White/confetti accents   
And I love hand made washcloths and market bags....
Tutti Frutti Cotton Crochet Dishcloths, set of 2, 7 x 9"

Natural Cotton Crochet Mesh Shopping Bag               

And there is still so much to see...
Handmade Crochet Powder Blue Shell Stitch Nesting Baskets, Set of 3

Glass Beads and Leaves Wine Charms, Set of Two
Crochet Lace Bookmark with Green Ribbon and Blue/Black Ribbon Rose
Such a great shop full of beautiful things!  To find out more about Ellen you can also check out her blog at

I feature an etsy shop weekly as part of my commitment to the BESTeam.  We are a group of etsy artists, vintage curators and crafters whose purpose is to support and promote each others etsy business via features and mentions on our personal blog sites and any on line communities where we are involved.

If you are an etsian and an avid blogger who is serious about your shops' visibility and success, I would like to invite you to click on the BESTeam logo above to learn more about our mission, purpose and requirements.  If the BESTeam appears to be an opportunity that fits for you, please contact us and a team administrator will get back to you promptly.
