Merchant Monday Circle Featuring Paxton Valley Folk Art

Good Monday Morning to you all. Hope you all had a great weekend.
PAFA Team is trying something new, every Monday team members will be featuring a team member of the PAFA Etsy Team. Today I have Deb From Paxton Valley Folk Art. I love her items. She is so talented. Read on to get to know her better.

1)We did you get your business name from?
I got my business name from the beautiful valley that we live in, here in British Columbia, Canada.

2) How long have you been in business
I 've been crafting for about 20 years but decided to become an 'on-line' prescence as Paxton Valley Folk Art about 2 1/2 years ago.

3) Who or what inspires you
I am inspired by the colours, textures and beauty of the natural world.

4) What is your creative style, primitive, country, folkart
My style is currently primitive and folk art but I love learning new techniques and styles so who knows where I will end up next!

5)What medium do you use in creating, clay, fabric, altered art, wood etc.
I work with fabric, paint, wood, found objects, stamps, paper and anything else that strikes my fancy :O)
I create hand crafted folk art from my own designs and from the designs of other talented artisans. I also create my own original epatterns and occassionally have a found vintage treasure or two to share at my Etsy shop or on my selling blog. I am also just starting to get into wholesaling my items, so if you are a shop owner looking for wholesale prices, please contact me!

6)What are your links (list your etsy shop, eBay, web site, blogs etc.)

What I have been working on

Hello everyone it is FREEZIN here today! With the wind chill it was -16 out today. BRrrrr. Guess this Wisconsinite got spoiled by the weather we were having. So with the cold outside I buckled down and got some new items finished. I finished up a Valentine electric lamp box that would be great up year around. I finished up a snowman potato masher tealight holder, bunny on a grater and Peter rabbit. I will be listing these with in the next few days.

Don't forget to sign up for my first giveaway, this will end on the 31st of January. Looks like we are almost to the 50 followers mark so that means I will be picking out another name for a surprise giveaway. Hope this finds you all keeping warm and enjoying your evening.
