DT Intro: Leah l'Orange

Hey there chickens!  Yet another new DT alert!

I'm Leah l'Orange and I have ISSUES!

So excited to be among the amazingly talented and creative folks who make up the Paper Issues Design Team! A ginormous THANK YOU to Cassie the head honcho here who made it happen for this fruity chick.  XO

I fell head over heels in love with paper crafting some 5 years ago when a penpal from England inspired me with her sweet handmade cards.  An interest quickly became a scary obsession, and now I have far more crafties than my poor little home can accommodate (thank goodness we're moving soon!). 

Aside from paper, here are some of my other "issues"...

1 - Popcorn. OH MY GOOMIE, best thing on earth (not the microwave kind). Breakfast, lunch and dinner.
2 - I make up words. They can all be found in the dictionary of Orange-isms.
3 - I'm a Scrabble addict, and my love for words (real and invented) runs deep.
4 - Yes, I am always this perky. Barring a nasty and debilitating migraine, I am generally a very happy, energetic, and silly person. Some people really hate that.  :D
5 - I. AM. CANADIAN! But I don't say "eh" and I don't have an accent. I am just extremely cheerful, polite and friendly. I married an Amurrican artist teacher musician and we are living happily ever after in NJ.

You can find me at The Chronicles of Orange merrily blogging away about my crafty shenanigans in addition to other silliness in my life (and there is plenty of the silly).  I'm SO assighted about the next six months with Paper Issues and can't wait to jump in!  :)

Oh, and I am all about loud and funky, so here's something pretty typical of my crafty style:
