‘Tis the season to make your home jolly

by Shea Homes Arizona on December 8, 2017

Decorating your home for the holidays can be fun and something special that the whole family gets to enjoy. Every year we unload the great big holiday boxes from the attic, remembering all of the fun decorations filled with memories that have been collected over the years. We at Shea Homes® recognize these moments and with the help of some of our favorite Phoenix-area Etsy shops we have put together a few of our favorite holidays finds whether it be for your own home for your family to cherish through the years or a gift to someone you love. Consider these local stores your one stop shop for all things holiday this season.

Sisters Michelle and Cheryl had a dream of starting a business for years, and in 2013 they made their dreams a reality by taking over a part of Michelle’s home to create an office and studio to design and create everything their Etsy shoppers get to enjoy! The sisters explain that their operation is truly a family affair, often recruiting their children and husbands to join in on the fun. Check out SignsStuffnThings for handcrafted items such as wood signs, wreaths, and home décor — not just for the holiday season, but all year long.

Bekah Jennings got her inspiration back in 2008 when her 5-year-old son was using stamps with paint on chipboard. Now, almost a decade later, each banner she creates is hand stamped in paint, distressed, and strung on ribbon. To meet the demands of a growing business, in 2010 Bekah asked her Aunt Johnell to join her as a partner, making it a family affair.

Shea Committed to Giving Back

by Shea Homes Arizona on November 17, 2017

Leukemia and Lymphoma SocietyThe Leukemia and Lymphoma Society is an organization Shea Homes® Arizona holds close to our hearts and this past weekend our family, friends, and co-workers gathered to celebrate and honor those touched by blood cancer at the Light the Night Walk in Phoenix, Arizona.

Leading up to the walk, members of the Shea Homes Arizona team raised funds to help support blood cancer research, with the goal of finding a cure. With the help of friends and so many of our loved ones, we raised over $11,500, surpassing our fundraising goal of $10,000 benefitting the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.

Throughout the walk, survivors held up white lanterns, yellow lanterns were held high in memory of a loved one, while supporters of the cause held up red lanterns. This event is joined by over 1 million people across the United States and Canada in 200 inspirational evening walks annually and this year in Phoenix, there were over 7,000 registered walkers.

If you would like to donate to this organization please visit here: https://donate.lls.org/ltn/donate.
