Silent Auction for The Turner Family

Over the weekend, one of our own lost the love of her life in a tragic car accident. You can read more about it here.

We know many of us were shocked and saddened by the death of Julee’s husband and baby Preslee’s daddy over the weekend. It’s hard whenever a loved one’s time is cut short, but especially when it touches someone so young. And it has put Julee in the position of single parenting her 10-month-old baby girl, in a way that no one should have to face.

 We know that she’s surrounded by loved ones, family and friends that can love on her, mourn with her, and be there for her in ways that many of us can’t. But it has touched a lot of us in Blog and Twitter Land and many want to help in a tangible way. So here is a way that we can come together and honor Matt Turner and offer what support we can to his wife and daughter.

  Next week, October 15th through the 19th, we (Life in the Green House, Life Sweet Life, Knee-Deep in Munchkin Land, The Getts Times, SheSheMade) will be conducting a silent auction with all proceeds going to Julee and Preslee.

And as always, we’re sure that Julee, Preslee, and the rest of their loved ones would greatly appreciate your prayers in the days, weeks, and months ahead.

After having my girly girl in April of 08, and spending oodles of money on one of a kind boutique, monogrammed clothing (with hairbows to match), I decided it was time to learn this trade myself before I went broke! I learned how to sew, embroider, and make hairbows in a matter of 3 months. What started as a hobby has turned into a dream come true. I quit my job as a teacher and now work from home when the little one sleeps. My life as a mommy and a boutique clothing designer/manufacturer/monogrammer is truly the best of both worlds!! I have big dreams for the future of my family and the future of SheShe Made. Thanks for joining me as I blog about the journey. Let me know if there is a bow or outfit you'd like custom made for you! Email me at and thanks for stopping by!
