Fan Mail Friday – Festive Mail and Big Books
Happy Friday to you! In all of the hustle and bustle of the holidays, it’s nice to take a moment to stop, read and reflect on the cards we received from you this amazing week. Many of you had the same sentiment in your letters, that crafting has made such a difference in your lives. We are so honored to be a part of something that has brought you so much joy, friendship and community. We have accomplished so much this year!
Come see what came into the office this week!
We received the cutest A2 card with the prettiest poinsettia from Cheri. Merry Christmas to you!
Mary Beth is known for her lovely honeycomb details, and this ho ho ho card is so festive! From the scenes to the wintery snowflakes, everything is beautiful!
We are thrilled to receive our first card from Martha! She has attended several of our events, and shares techniques and crafting skills with other crafty friends.
Barbie wrote to tell us about the AZ Griffin Gals “Make One Christmas Card A Week Challenge”, and how it was a great way to not stress about having all of your holiday cards ready to go!
This gorgeous card is from Lynn, and it contains such a sweet note on the most gorgeous stationery. Lynn is grateful for our community, for crafting and for all of the content we make to teach others how to make beautiful things. We are thankful for you!
Your diorama card lifted our spirits so much, Marie! Along with this amazing card, Marie is running the California Griffinite group and is thankful for the connections she has made in the “Anna World”.
For Sharon’s second submission to Fan Mail Friday she sent a fantastic Christmas card, and a magnificent album. What’s amazing is that she created 25 of these for friends and family; what a beautiful gift!

Our hearts are heavy; late last week we lost our beautiful friend, Pamela Berry to her battle with cancer. She was a beloved wife, adored mother and cherished friend to many. Pamela was an amazing person who lived life to the fullest; she enjoyed traveling with family, cooking delicious meals and paper crafting. Her smile always lit up any room she walked into, and she will be missed tremendously by all who knew her.
If you would like to send your heartfelt messages and condolences to Pamela’s family, you can mail them to:

OMG! Such beauty and creativity… I was wondering what you do with all the cards you receive from your followers? It seems you must have a warehouse full…
It hardly seems like 2023 is almost over, it’s been a very creative year for me because of you Anna. Your staff is amazing also, they make Anna Inc look like perfection on our virtual end… Merry Christmas to you Anna and everyone around you!
How do you make the albums? Is there something I missed?
I especially loved the Angel Cards. The book albums were amazing and so beautiful with so much talent put into them.
Beautiful fan Mail Friday and my heartfelt sympathy to Pamela Berry’s family it’s never easy loosing a loved one. Just remember all the wonderful times you spent together and the laughter and she will always be with you. Sincerely, Jean.
Beutiful cards, for a beautiful lady. Merry Christmas Anna..
It is so sad 😞 that we have lost one of our griffinites. My heart goes to Pamela’s family.
Beautiful and creative. Please include me Win It Wednesday.
Praying for Pamela’s loved ones and everyone who is hurting this holiday season. Lifting one another in prayer as we navigate the difficult emotions that Christmas brings.
May each and every one of you in this amazing community realize the gifts of your talents and creations! I feel blessed to be part of the Anna Griffin fan base, not just to witness Anna’s incredible creativity, but the love and fellowship among everyone. God Bless
This time of year is for the memories we hold dear, the empty seat at the dinner table or the empty comfy chair next to the Christmas tree, our love ones we miss with all are hearts. Remember them and remember the new memories to come. Merry Christmas and happy holidays to all.
Thank you for sharing your beautiful cards and paper crafts and the sad news about Pamela. Indeed we are a family!!
I Love watching fan mail Friday. Love seeing all the beautiful cards and projects. Everyone is so creative. I hope you receive my card for fan mail Friday. Wishing everyone a very MERRY CHRISTMAS!!
Many years ago I bought a Anna card kit. My granddaughters and I had fun with that kit. Well I had a few cards left over that had been overlooked for several years. When I came across the cards I was happy to see the cards where still in good shape. I took some of the beautiful cards to the staff at our local cancer center. I will be making more.
Sincere condolences and 🙏to the family of Pamela Berry.
Anna thank you for these beautiful creations.
