Valerie, of Valerie's Gallery, is the perfect choice for EtsyHooker of the Week this week. She has an awesome shop that she is always working on improving in all areas. She is an everyday participant of the team as she has taken the lead with the team promo thread. Her teammates respect and admire her (as well as drool over her creations.)
Mountainside Crochet had this to say about Valerie:
It has been my observation that Valerie is one of the most active members of the Etsyhooker Street Team. Besides her daily promo on behalf of the team, she participates in many ways and is a real leader. Val has a lovely shop filled with wonderful felted items from booties to pottery which each show off her wonderful talent in this field.
I have a feeling that Valerie is a very busy lady, yet when I needed help recently, she took the time to act as a special mentor to me and her quick answer relieved my anxiety and helped me have a smooth transition through handling my first ever Custom Order.
Diana, a newer member of the team, had these comments about Valerie:
I would like to second the nomination for Valerie Kessler as the "Etsyhooker of the Week".
She contributes a tremendous amount of effort to this team and I think that she is very deserving of this honor. Being fairly new to this team, I look upon her as an example to all of us.
Thank you Valerie for all you do for us.
Her work is incredible and I drool over it all the time. I also dream that I can do work like hers.
