DT Intro: Jess Mutty

Heyyyyyy! It's Jess Mutty here today to school you on... ME!  I'm like that piece of cling wrap you can't tear off the roll... they just can't get rid of me at Paper Issues.

I am a Mainer who now lives in the Boston area with my computer geek husband, three year old, Owen, ten month old, Lily, and three orange cats.  In a previous life I designed costumes for theatre.  Paper took over in 2006 after I sampled just about every craft out there and determined that papercrafting clearly had the coolest hobbyists and the most shopping enablers.  When I am not digging myself out from a pile of embellishments I read, cook, bake, and reminisce about what it was like to be able to travel without kids.

You've probably caught on by now that all of us at Paper Issues have not so small "issues" with anything and everything scrappy. But I have a few more issues to cop to:
1. If you allow me near a Starbucks in the summer a Java Chip Frappuccino WILL be coming out with me.
2. I have a weeeeeee bit of an obsession with young adult dystopian fiction. You've read The Hunger Games?  Me too! Plus about eleventy billion others like it!

3. My kids have insane wardrobes because I really love to shop.  BUT... I shop often and only buy smart.  I have Janie and Jack taste on a Target budget.

4. I heart zombies.  I am counting down the days until the next season of The Walking Dead.

5. I find it nearly impossible to leave a layout "unframed".  I always feel the need to add some kind of a border... paper, doodles, sewing... to complete my page.

Here are a few of my recent favorite projects:

Stop by my blog and say hello!
