My name is Valerie, and I’m so thrilled to be a part of the new MarkerPop! design team; I’ve been shopping from this awesome site and admiring the designers’ work for quite some time now!
My wonderful husband & I have 4 amazing kids (ages 11-16), and 3 sweet little doggies. We live just north of Chicago, Illinois, in the good ole U.S.of A!
I’ve been scrapping since I was a child, and I discovered cardmaking 3 years ago when I started my job at a craft store, which changed my entire focus of crafting! I’m also a substitute teacher, and when I’m not busy working or being swallowed up by my family, you can always find me in my craft room enjoying the glorious world of creativity!
I’ve been blogging since January, 2012, and it has turned into such a great journey for me, as I’ve met amazing people and made so many wonderful new friends. This opportunity with MarkerPop! is another door I am so excited to open!
