Monday Marketplace...

I'm a proud member of THE OLD FARMHOUSE GATHERING TEAM ON ETSY... a talented, professional group of artisans who create everything from Primitive to Shabby Chic, with an old fashioned flair!
Each Monday, I will be featuring a different member from this awesome team and introducing you to some of their great products and items.  
Today's Monday Market place feature is: 
Judy  of ~Holly Ridge Creations~  
1. What is the name of your Etsy shop and why did you choose that name?
The name of my shop is Holly Ridge Creations and all I can say is that we live on a ridge that has lots and lots of holly...hmmmm, not so creative, huh?

2. How long have you been on Etsy?
I joined the OFG group in the spring of 2008 but I have to confess that I haven't been very diligent in keeping my shop filled. I am trying really hard to correct that.

3. What type of items do you offer?
Most of my items are handpainted and one of a kind. I love doing snowmen and santas and will be adding those to my shop along with more trash to treasure items and gourd head dolls.

4. How long have you been crafting?
I have been crafting since the mid 80's...I know, I'm old!! :-)

5. Who or What inspires you?
I am always inspired by and in awe of God's creation. His color palette amazes me.
6. What is your favorite item in your shop and why?
The favorite thing in my shop right now is my Lily and Jingle Bear primitive doll. But, that will change when I start adding my santas and other holiday items.

7. Other places where you can be found (Ebay, webstore, blog) hollyridgecreations.artfire.com
