Brrrrrrrrr! (shiver) Great Frozen entry! Your putin' me in the mood for the holidays and I LOVE it! My favorite time of year, and this image makes me want to start sketching some kind of holiday-monster! When I get home, that's the first thing I'll do! It will be "dood inspired"!

What a delight. Your houses have such warmth even in the freezing cold. It is so nice to come inside and see that fire has been started. Lovely as always!

Valgal,

I LOVE these of course because you know I love snow more than anything!!! I'm counting down the days till ski season!!

On another note, I want to thank you for the awesome zac t-shirts! I wear one or the other almost everyday. My all time favorite shirts!! Sorry that I've been so remiss in thanking you -- my job is crazy right now because of Windows 7 launch...

Love you lots!!

Hello Val! These houses look delicous. I don't know why I feel that way but they look like icing on a cake. I wish I had a birthday cake with a Valerie House design! LOVE LOVE LOVE!

Very nice, but you skipped the best holiday!!! Halloween ;). Though it is tough to do a frozen Halloween card... unless you do a igloo? Great stuff my friend!

Oh Val this is such a fabulous piece, I love the minty greenish cool color on the outside and the inside is just so warm and cozy and inviting.

Hi Val! These houses are so beautiful. They are the epitome of the season of frozen rooftops. I just watched your wonderful video and, WOW! You are soooo very talented. I love your Etsy store. I just visited it and you have so many wonderful pieces there. I really like your 5 o'clock poster! That is me after working the daily grind at my job.

Love you, Val! You are truly an inspiration to me.

Have a great weekend, my dear!
