DT Intro : {DeeDee Catron}

Hello everyone!! I'm so super stoked to be here as part of Paper Issues.
Already in the short time I've been here I can assure you this group of ladies is ASTOUNDING. So inspirational, giving, hilarious, and down to earth! 

My name is DeeDee and at this exact point in time I am 25 years, 9 months and 10 days old (Give or take a few hours). I have a wonderful husband of almost 3 years and a super sweet little genius kiddo of 2 years and almost 4 months. 

And.. I have issues:

1) I have a serious PAPER Issue. plain and simple I totally belong here. I can't get enough of vintage styled papers, bold patterned papers, neutral papers begging for color. I dream about paper.

2) I have a serious DESIGNING Issue. During the day I design stamps for Viva Las VegaStamps! and during the evening I design chipboard for my own company, UmWowStudio. I have a Bachelor of Arts degree in Industrial Design and have a passion for beautiful work and smooth production. 

3) I have a serious WIENER Issue. I'm totally outnumbered in our household.. I have two awesome male wiener dogs and also have the hubs, and the ickle bouncing baby boy. 

4) I have a serious DIY Issue. I'm not sure if it goes along with my ID schooling or not.. but whenever I see something super awesome I always say "Hey.. I can just make one!" which actually doesn't always turn out cheaper. Especially if it's a process I'm not 100% familiar with.. like welding. 

5) I have a serious COLOR Issue. I just cannot get over color. ALL of them. Color combos. Bright bold colors. Sexy vintage colors. Neutral colors. I love them all. I even have a tattoo on my arm of stars.. big thick bold black outlines with a rainbow of color inside surrounded by a slew of uncolored ones.

And here is a favorite layout of mine to help you get a taste of my style!
