Hey Girl Designs: From raising awareness of Down syndrome to starting a business

“Our whole motto that we’ve lived with since she was born is that ‘we’re more alike than different.

Deanna Warren, co-founder of Hey Girl Designs

While painting together four years ago, mother and daughter Deanna and Ashley Warren decided to create some signs for Down syndrome awareness. Soon thereafter, their hobby blossomed into Hey Girl Designs, which offers whimsical, sometimes custom-designed home decor celebrating a variety of occasions.

In this episode, the Warrens visit with Anchor Hannah Wilson to talk about painting, hugs, Tyler Perry, and hitting the big time in the 2022 Madea movie.
