DT Intro: JoAnn Valderama

Hi All!

My name is JoAnn, but most of my close and crafty friends call me Jo! I'm super excited to be a part of Paper Issues DT!

I'm married to my high school sweetheart of almost 18 years and we have 3 kids - ages 6, 4, and 6 months. I also work full-time night shifts as a pediatric nurse so my life is SUPER busy - but I always make time for crafting! If not, I think I'd go crazy! *lol*

Here are 5 random facts about me:
  • I get stage fright if I'm in front of a large group of people. 
  • But I like attention. I even have a You Tube channel HERE. *lol*
  • I'm a Virgo so I have a lot of OCDs when it comes to scrapping - I gravitate toward clean lines. I'm JUST now starting to get out of my comfort zone (see below). Misting was hard for me to get into, but now I love it!
  • I'm full of ironies. (see above. haha)
  • I love to cook. I hate to clean. So that means I don't cook that often.
So like I said, I love crafting, but my first love will always be scrapbooking. Here's a favorite recent layout of mine using a bunch of Pink Paislee that can be found at the Paper Issues shop!

Don't forget to use my code for 20% off! Cassie always has the latest and greatest stuff! Just sayin'. :)

Thanks for stopping by this morning! Have a great week!
