BESTteam Feature of the Week - Gmaellen

Gmaellen's Etsy shop is full of glorious crocheted items! There is such a variety of handcrafted pieces that are not only attractive but functional.  For the eco-friendly shopper there are bags & totes. Think beyond the farmers' market, these great bags can be used for kid's toys, gym/workout clothes, beach items, and anything that needs to be carried.

The avid reader can choose from a selection of pretty patterned bookmarks - no more creased pages. 

If you enjoy decorating your home, there are kitchen accessories, baskets, afghans & throws, rugs & mats, and dish/wash cloths. I love the dishcloths - Don't just use them in the kitchen - they are multipurpose- put them in the guest bath, nursery, use as potholders, doilies, trivets. They are reusable, durable, and eco-friendly as well as being easy to wash and maintain.

This little button basket is too cute! A great decorative piece to hold jewelry and other little treasures. It would also make a great "package" for a gift.  Add a pair of Gmaellen's earrings or wine charms and you have the perfect gift!

For the fashionista, there is a collection of handcrafted crocheted jewelry!  The earrings are unique! I love the crocheted lace and flower bracelet - so cheerful and bright!

I have always wanted to learn how to crochet and just never seemed to get the hang of it.  Gmaellen's  talent leaves me in awe!
