ABOUT

MEET MICHELLE

Welcome to Shell Dottie Design, my name is Michelle! I’m in my early twenties living in Cincinnati, OH. My fiance and I are getting married May 28th, 2021 and we are so excited. We have a four year old german shepherd named Artemis who loves getting snuggles and lots of love.

I started this blog as a creative outlet, which I have wanted to start for the longest time. I look forward to providing inspiration of beauty, wellness, and design for everyone to enjoy. I am also the owner of an Etsy shop called ShellDottieDesign that sells printable art and décor. I am so excited to share all my favorite finds, new designs and, of course supply simple and enjoyable inspiration.
