Introducing 2014 Design Team Members Mendi Yoshikawa & Tya Smith

We are excited to introduce to you two more of our 2014 Design Team Mendi Yoshikawa and Tya Smith.

Mendi Yoshikawa
My name is Mendi Yoshikawa and I am over the moon excited to be joining this amazing team of talented women whom I have admired for so many years!   My love for all things Doodlebug goes back to almost 13 years ago when I started clipping their ads out of magazines as inspiration.  My favorite collections are always bright, colorful and cute and who else does this better than Doodlebug?! I live in Camas, Washington with my husband of 17 years, our two daughters and one very spoiled cat.  I have an addiction to Dr. Pepper and love to stay up late (of course followed by sleep in). I started as a scrapbooker, but in recent years discovered a passion for making cards that took me by surprise.  There's something so gratifying about creating on a smaller scale and using it to brighten someone's day.  I love clean, linear designs and one might say I'm obsessed with my sewing machine.  ;)  I am blessed to also be a part of Lori Whitlock's Creative Team as well as creating projects for Technique Tuesday.

Tya Smith

Hi there! My name is Tya Smith and I am absolutely thrilled to be able to be a part of the Doodlebug Design Team once again this year. I had such an amazing experience being on the team last year and am honored to be able to be back for another term!

Just a little about me- I am a wife of 18 years to my hottie husband Brad,and a Mom to 3 wonderful, crazy busy kids : Ashlyn (16), Ethan (13) and Maddie (11). I live in Syracuse, UT which is about 30 miles north of Salt Lake City (and the Doodlebug Design Home Office!) When I am not working on paper crafts, I love to travel, cook and read. I am a HUGE Harry Potter fan and love 80's music! I have worked at my local scrapbook store The Heartland Paper Co. for 15 years.

I love being creative and love color so Doodlebug was THE perfect fit for me! Thanks Doodlebug for letting me "play" for another year!
