Monday Merchant Circle Featuring Valerie Richardson!

Good Monday morning Dear Followers!
I have a wonderful Artisan, Team mate, and cyber friend that I'd like to introduce you to if you haven't had the privilege of meeting already!
Here's her interview!
How did you get your name, Val? (I call her Val 'cause I can and she hasn't shot me yet!)
I named my business after my Grandmother. Yorkie was her nickname and she was the one who inspired me to craft. She helped me make my first apron for 4-H and I was hooked!
How long have you been in business?
I have crafter over 30 years and opened up my Etsy shop in February of 2009.
Who or what inspires you?
I get my inspiration from all sorts of places. Looking at patterns gives me ideas. I also like to look through craft magazines and craft stores.
What is your creative style?
Primitive and Country
What medium(s) do you like to work with?
My main medium is fabric but I also like to embroider and work with wood. (My kinda gal this Val!)
I like to add my own personal touch to my items by using beads, rick rack, lace, etc. I make Dolls, Make-Dos, Wood Blocks, Household Items; anything that catches my eye!
You can find Valerie at these places below. Take a minute and visit her. She's so sweet and you'll LOVE what you see!!

Stay Tuned for more!! Lots happening this week and I've got ALOT to share with you!
