Fan Mail Friday - November 17th, 2023

Hello friends,

It's hard to believe that we were together for Create 9 a whole week ago! We love getting to craft with you, get to know you and see how much joy creating brings each and every one of you. If you attended, we want to say thank you so much for spending last weekend with us! We have Thanksgiving on our mind since the holiday is next week, and we just want you to know just how thankful we are for you!

Come catch up with us for today's Fan Mail Friday!

Teresa wants to wish us all a Happy Thanksgiving! Thank you so much, and we adore your lovely Calligraphic Sentiment Dies card!

Kathy is back in her craftroom and just mailed her Thanksgiving cards off to family and friends. She sent this pretty Carte Noire card to let us know how much she, her daughter and her sister enjoy Create!

We are grateful for you, Mary Beth! Thank you for the gorgeous Thanksgiving card, and we hope that you have an amazing holiday. 

Roxanne is thankful that she found us and this wonderful community. We are thankful for you, Roxanne. We appreciate your kind words and your beautiful cornucopia easel card!

Adina always makes the most creative projects, and we are in love with how she used the bench from our Trellis Album Class to be front and center on this gorgeous card. She was so inspired by seeing Anna's porch and had it in mind with this card.

Thank you all for this week's sweet sentiments and beautiful projects. We love to hear from you! Submit something for Fan Mail Friday by mailing it to our office at 99 Armour Drive NE, Atlanta, GA 30324.

Dear Anna, This has been a whirlwind November for me. I wasn’t going to do Create 9 for various reasons until I saw the One Day Offer. I commented saying I might do the Last Day. Then before I knew it, Stephanie left me a message saying someone had donated Create 9 to me!! WHAT? Then when the box arrived (5 days later ) !! I could see from shipping label who had paid for it. This friend is someone I have recently met in the Tex Anna FB group. I immediately contacted her and Thanked her for her generosity. You Anna, have helped so many to share friendships in many ways.
Well, am I glad I did Create 9. I have been in AWE with all the fantastic Papers, Dies, Ephemera and Classes. I also met many from the DFW area and hoping to meet together in Jan.2024.
Your generosity in giving is amazing and your developing Fabulous and Fascinating Paper Crafts is the ultimate. The classes have been most interesting and the Swapcard connections were excellent. I still couldn’t get into the Craft Rooms which made me miss the extra fun, but I have heard many wonderful things about how many peoples enjoyed it. I have high speed computer, & internet so it baffles me as to why connections were not good. Your NEW website looks FANTASTIC.
Once again, I do want to say , I love your products, your people working with you and of course YOU. Thank you for Create 9……..getting excited for Crop 4 in May 2024!!! Have a HAPPY THANKSGIVING.

Fan Mail Friday post-CREATE is part of what I call ‘afterglow,’ and Anna, you really are glowing! I don’t know how you do it, but I think it has alot to do with your reaching out to others with your enjoyment of crafting—how grateful we are! CREATE 9 was BEST YET, especially with many new 3D-projects—THANK YOU! Thank you for teaching us because I love to make and gift lovely handmade things that aren’t found anywhere else! CREATE WAS AWESOME, and my sister was able to join in for the first day. She had a BLAST! I love that we could share in happiness to craft together! Have a blessed Thanksgiving, Anna! We ❤️ you!
