Fan Mail Friday- November 18th, 2022
Happy Friday to you! We’re not quite sure what day it is because we have had so many incredible moments over the last week. Create 8 was an amazing event, and we want to thank each and every one of you who attended for participating with us. It was certainly the best event that we’ve had and that’s because of you! We loved hearing how many of you enjoyed our time together immensely! It’s certainly been one for the record books! We have a few things to catch you up on. On our streaming platform, AGTV, our next event is titled Picture Perfect and will take place on November 30th at 12pm EST. If you missed any of our HSN shows, you can re-play by item on our store on hsn.com. Finally, our next shows on HSN will take place on January 17th. Previews will start a little before Christmas, and we can’t wait to celebrate our 13th anniversary on HSN with you!
Let’s open this week’s mail together!
We love the Arizona Griffin Gals and the sweet card and gift that they sent to the office for Create 8. The goodies were enjoyed by all! A big hug and thank you to: Pam, Susan, Vicka, Lu, Kim, Sylvia, Diane, Mary Ann, Shari, Mary Ann, Mary, Shelbi, Cat, Rose, Carole, Florentina, Marcey, Nora, Nora, Shiela, Linda, Stacy, Karen, Maren, Brenda, Laura, Barbie and Jane!
Anna from Savannah wrote to tell us Happy Thanksgiving and to let us know how much she is enjoying AGTV!
The Florida Griffinites have been hunkering down and weathering a few storms during hurricane season. These special ladies donated $1000 to the following: American Red Cross Hurricane Ian Relief, the Daytona Church of Christ Hurricane Ian Relief, the Harry Chapin Food Bank, the Salvation Army Hurricane Ian Relief, the Samaritan’s Purse Hurricane Ian Relief and the World Central Kitchen. Wow! The following ladies contributed: Joan, Carol, Janet, Carolyn, Lisa, Rosemarie, Teresa, Helen, Linda and Diane. We are so honored to have you in this community, and are very inspired by your generosity.
Mary sent this gorgeous Simply Christmas card to us on the Monday before Create. We think you’re right… maybe we do need to make a stand for your beautiful cards!
Over the river and through the woods, to Grandmother’s house we go! This adorable card by Babs is too cute for words. We love all of the details she added including the Snowglobe Sticker Embellishments and luggage from Carte Homme! Babs has lots in common with us, and shared how she has worked in graphic art and publications for many years. She loves classic cars, and made this woodie wagon to send love at Christmastime.
What a wonderful way to wrap up the week! Thank you one and all for such an outpouring of love this week. Hearing from you always brings a smile to our faces here in the office. If you would like to submit something to us for Fan Mail Friday, you can mail it to us at 99 Armour Drive NE, Atlanta, GA 30324. We look forward to your cards and letters!
It is a joy to see so much creativity in card making. I love the inspiration.
Wow, what neat cards
Wow! There is so much more than sharing beautiful cards, the generosity of your Griffinites! Each person’s story is large in their vision of giving to others and because of you and your company brought all this community together! Thank you Anna for giving me a hobby and cards for my friends -to share beauty too!
Amazing! Creative works and personal touches make everything come full circle within the groups who follow you.
Thank you. Another great Friday share.
And I’m glad I wasn’t the only one wondering about the display of the Simply cards.
Love your cards and inspiration! Working on my Christmas cards with your sets! They are fabulous and so much fun! No stress except trying to pick out designs so many choices!! lol

Good job, everybody, have a good weekend!
As always I enjoy the different cards made by the viewers and see some things I’d like to work with. Have a happy Thanksgiving and if I don’t hear from you have a very Merry Christmas. I hope my email reaches you. I’d just love for you to see my creation. Now i have to make one for my granddaughters 16th birthday. I’m going to put some earrings in it before I send it to Arizona. Best wishes for the COMMING year.
The easel for the cards is a great idea. I am getting the autopsy ups for the simply card kits. I made the simply Christmas cards. Simply lovely!
Anna, Have a Happy Thanksgiving!
I registered for Create 9. Loved Create 8.
The creators of the cards displayed above did a fantastic job.
Lovely cards and greetings. I love the acknowledgement of Az Griffin Gals as I just joined during Create 8! Lovely ladies. I have been graciously accepted and received lovely comments about my projects I’ve posted.
All the beautiful cards!!!
I will also start saving for Create 9 next year! Hopefully it will be on a weekend that I can attend, November is always so busy with family birthdays that I can not miss, keeping my fingers crossed!!!
and again, so much fun to see Fan Mail Friday and Anna Griffin. We all appreciate you and your crew so much. HAPPY THANKSGIVING!!!!
Congrats Anna and team on a very busy and tiring week! I hope all are resting up before the holiday. Such beautiful and inspiring projects this week. Thank you for sharing. Wishes for wonderful weekend and for a safe weekend to those in the Buffalo, NY area. We had our share of snow in Central NY yesterday…
Anna, you are amazing! Your love for crafting is contagious! Thank you for all you do!
Love the card stand idea! Love the shape of the cards in the simply Christmas cards and would love to see more dies to cut layers for them. Love, love, love your products!!!!

Love, love, love the Woodie wagon.
I’ve left two messages on here for Anna about a faulty item in my Christmas card shutter kit, I’m not good on the computer so I couldn’t find out how to contact Anna in the UK, I’m in the UK, I’m quite a poorly person with diabetes, bladder cancer, liver disease stage 4 sclerosis and now I’m anemic, I’m getting very tired making my Christmas cards, but writing to you three times and no reply is also very tiring and painful with my arthritic hands, I live in hope for a reply this time
Your gratefully Sue Robinson
Susan, I took the liberty of sending a message to AG on your behalf so I’m hoping that will help. With so many comments on the blog they could easily be dismissed so I hope you don’t mind. They may like your Email address. Have a great Holiday
Definitely like Mary’s idea of making a stand for our cards to be displayed. What an out”standing” idea.
I just love seeing all of the cards on Friday. I am happy that Create 8 was such a success. Maybe Ican make it next year. Hope so.
I really enjoy seeing what others are doing and the style they choose, thank you for sharing.
Looking forward to experiencing Create this coming year. Appreciate you and your staff’s talents. Love the cards shared with us this week. Thank you all for being you.
I would love it if someone would please send Class 5 from Create 8 to me. I have been trying to get it since 11/9.
If you can send me your email address I can email you the PDF I saved – my email -firstname.lastname@example.org
Thank you for all the beautiful cards thank you again!!
Love the car card. I can’t wait to make one after Christmas.
Anna you are definitely a nice person. I have never met you in person, but your kindness comes across in everything that you do to make things better for all of us. Please know you are so appreciated and such a good example of a truly wonderful human being! Blessings to you and yours and have a Happy Thanksgiving.
Thanks for sharing with us all the beautiful creations. Anna, you are a very NICE person. You create lots of smiles.
I just received gift tags from you. That put a smile on my face.
Again Thank You Anna
Not sure why I have trouble getting my remarks on there I’m always saying kind things not sure what’s going on with this website
Wonderful to see all those cards on fan mail Friday I loved all of them especially the one with the pumpkin and the woody car those were really cute
Very pretty cards!
Love all of these cards. So many creative people are Anna fans.
Great Fan Mail Friday! I enjoyed watching!
Just one word AWESOME !
I saw Babs WOODIE WAGON on the Community Blog in Finishing School and was inspired. I have a whole fleet of cars ready to go out to my coworkers, I made each WAGON in the colors of their own cars and filled the back with present and of course added the surf board because I live in So. California.
All so very special in so many ways..
Thanks for sharing!
Lovely cards, thank you for sharing. ❤️
I just love your products. I am a newbie so sorry to jump on this late in the game. I have been crafty/sewing for a very long time. I can not stop purchasing your products. I have told my children repeatedly “Anna Griffin” for Christmas. My creations have definitely stepped up on a impressive level. Thank you
Thank you for including Dolly & I in Fan Mail Friday. Wishing you and your whole team a fantastic Thanksgiving. 🦃💙
That was a really fun Fan Mail Friday! Certainly hope that you and your team take off the weekend and relax! Thank you for all you do; you just shine Anna!
Your staff is fabulous and so are you!
