About Swirled Peas


I'm Shelly, mother of three grown daughters and 'Granny' to five grandchildren, all aged seven and under who live close by...gulp. My daughters were homeschooled so they took advantage of the time and space they had to explore all kinds of crafty endeavors. It became a lifestyle for our family. After my two oldest daughters graduated, I spent five years as a co-Founder and Director of a very successful charter school in my neighborhood. I've handed off that position and now I can spend time with my grandkids, sew, and design - three of my favorite pastimes!

Many of the beautiful designs you see at Swirled Peas are the creative work of my talented graphic designing daughter, Marissa, mother of three of those five darling grandchildren of mine. Her digital designs were recently featured on the Today Show!

If the listed items in my shop aren't quite what you're looking for, get in touch with me and communicate your vision.  Many of Swirled Peas' best selling designs have started with a client asking, "This is what I want...can you do it?"

Thanks for stopping by, and I hope you find something here that will enhance your life and home!
