Thankful

Hi everyone!

With the holidays in full force, the hustle and bustle of preparing family gatherings and scoping out the season’s best sales (like our Scrapbook Super Sale!), sometimes we forget the real reason for Thanksgiving. It is so important to take a minute away from the craziness to reflect on the things that we are most thankful for, and I wanted to share a few of mine with you.

I am thankful for Team Anna Griffin. Each and every person who works with us here in the office, every sales rep, every retailer, every artist and every vendor plays such a huge role in what makes this company what it is!

I am thankful for my new kitten and team member, Georgie! That little ball of fur has made my heart so full this year, and has been and will continue to be a fantastic companion. It’s been so fun sharing photos of him with you, too!

And speaking of you, I cannot even begin to say how thankful I am for YOU! Your constant support means everything, and makes it possible for me to wake up every morning and do what I love all day long.  I have cherished so many of your posts here that made me laugh, cry and smile this year, and that is what my products are all about! My hope is that I can continue to make beautiful things that inspire all of you to be confident and creative, and to share your passion with others.  You all are absolutely the best!

Wishing you  a wonderful Thanksgiving full of gratitude!
Love,
Anna

    Happy Thanksgiving! Thanks also for reminding us that it is not all about Black Friday, but about taking the time to set that aside and remember what we are most thankful for. Looking forward to your sale, but doubt much will be left by the time I get home (sad face).

    Thank you Anna for making all of your wonderful designs available to us through HSN.  I do have a request, I love scrapbooking as well as card making, but I am a traditional scrapper – I like to design my own pages & put the pictures & embellishments where I want.  I love your albums and would buy in a heartbeat a kit that contained the papers, and embellishments etc. that would allow me to design the page myself.  Look forward to your next appearance on HSN.  Karen

    Happy Thanksgiving Anna and Team,

    Just in time to start holiday dinner prep I finished making 65 cards for my Church’s holiday craft sale.  YAY! Your Winter Wonderland cartridge is like having you in my craft room! Love love love it.

    My husband and I share desk/workspace, so I can’t buy what really appeals to me,,,your gorgeous furniture line!  We’ve downsized, so prospects are slim, plus I can’t envision him in that lovely chair:(

    Here’s hoping that Monday and your big sale go off without any glitches.  I’ve looked forward to it so much!!!!

    The 5th comment down on this thread looks like spam. The poster is named “internet download manager free” and the name links to a download page for software. The comment is generic “like your website” so this is not a real person.

    Dearest Anna & Co,

    Ditto! Ditto! Ditto to all other posts! I couldn’t have said it any better. May I just add, like all the others, the gratefulness I feel towards you and you wonderful team. Bringing crafting to a level of beauty that is unmatched!

    Dear Anna,

    We are so blessed and thankful to have you in our crafting lives. Your designs are so perfect that we can almost do our crafts blindfolded since you take such care to supply wonderful products.

    I hope that this new year will bring you joy with little Georgie. Might we see a new kitty and doggie kit next year??

    I could echo the public sentiments expresses here and I must write also that Anna Griffin’s products are so wonderful because of their talented creator. Other companies have tried unsuccessfully to imitate AG’s style; what these others lack is her amazing spirit and genuine wish to inspire us in ways that are always new. Even without the paper products,AG does make our corner of the world a better place through the way she treats others. It is our good luck that she works so hard to make us see that the best is always yet to come and that ‘more is never enough!’
    So the best holiday wish for AG is that the universe returns all the goodness to her that she extends to us.

    Your kind words are as elegant as the fabulous products you create. Your genuine warmth and caring for others shines through. I am thankful to be able to enjoy the creativity you share and to share it with others.
    I am Thankful for family and getting to spend some time with mine tomorrow. (and will rest up and be ready for your Super Cyber Monday sale 🙂 )
    I wish you, your family, and the whole Anna Griffin Team a very Happy Thanksgiving!

    Thankful for your beautiful products that have allowed me to make beautiful cards. Loved sharing a stack of cards with my Mom today. She and my Mother-in-law will each get to select some cards to mail to their friends.I brought 12 cards, each one beautifully different, that they will get to choose from. Thanks for helping me find my creative outlet!
    Happy Thanksgiving!

    I am thankful for so much this year.  I’ve been truly blessed.  I want to thank you, Anna, for your beautiful works of art that help ME be creative.  I will be working on Christmas cards from the wonderful Anna kit tomorrow between checking on the turkey and watching Macy’s parade. A Happy Thanksgiving to all!!

    As I said to you couple years back when we spoke on HSN, I vote for All Anna All the time on HSN!  Thank you and your team for your God-given artistic abilities, your effervescent personality, joining us when we exclaim joy over your products, and listening and responding to our concerns when things go wrong.  Your products have brought such joy into my hobby I can’t tell you, as so many others I feel we’re kindred spirits in our creative styles, but YOU and your team are the masters at putting it together.  May each of you have a wonderful Thanksgiving and may we all pause to give thanks for our individual blessings as well.

    Anna, your card making products, papers and kits bring me joy and makes me feel like I’m the most advanced card maker.  I’m thankful that you have such a great love of the older designs and romantic eras.  I wish you and all of your team and of course, little Georgie (I think if him as my namesake as that is what I’m called), a wonderful And safe Thanksgiving.

    Happy Thanksgiving to you, Anna and your team! I love all your paper and card designs and have been very happy with your Cricut products. I can’t wait to see what you design in the future. Thanks so much for taking the time to visit with us at Circle Mania. It was truly a pleasure to meet you.

    A BIG THANK YOU to Team Anna Griffin from me.  I appreciate all you do.  THANK YOU for keeping elegance alive and making it easy for us common folk to achieve, for giving us an alternative to all the other styles out there.

    Happy Thanksgiving to Georgie on his first one ever!  🙂

    Dear Anna, I can’t begin to tell you how happy I am to wish you a blessed thanksgiving.  I’m pretty much housebound taking care of my husband and the things he used to do but your going to HSN has encouraged me to do more cardmaking and scrapbooking.  Your joy in your work and loving attention you give to your customers (that is friends) is inspiring in this world of negatives.  Dealing with you and your company gives me confidence and hearing the testmonies of the many people who call in, I know you are a very special person.  I wish you much joy and peace for this blessed season .

    Hello Anna:  What a lovely post.  You really are our inspiration and, as my post in your last blog entry said, “I will just buy.”  Hee hee. Thought that was a great way to celebrate your sale!

    Can’t say enough about how much I love your products.  They are one of a kind and the best anywhere.  It must be so rewarding doing what you love everyday and knowing that you are touching so many lives with your products, both the crafters who buy them and the ones who receive them.  How wonderful!

    May you and yours have the best Thanksgiving ever!

    Kind regards,
    Penny

    I purchased your set of 3 metal dies and have watched your video 5x on youtube and no matter what i do i can’t get it to work. I have a cuttlebug and a friend said to try and use an extra peice of cardstock but NOTHING and I mean NOTHING works and I’m affraid I’m going to break my cuttlebug. What am I doing wrong or what can i do different. I have 5/6 different metal dies and none of them work in the cuttlebug. Can you help me out here. I’ve spent over $200 on different dies and yet none work but I’m more upaet over the 3 in your set as I would like to use them in some of the cars I am making. I hope someone gets back with me as I’ve written before and no one ever returns my emails. Thanks. JOAN

HSN Sneak Peek Returning Favorites on Thursday

We’ve got one last round of sneak peeks for you before we’re back on HSN this Thursday, November 14th!  Join us at 9 a.m., 12 p.m. and 6 p.m. as we talk all things crafting, Christmas and organization.

Today we’ve got two sets of Holiday Trimming embossing folders to give away. Congratulations to Joann Benford and Penny C on winning these! Don’t forget that this bundle will be available separately this month for the very first time! Now on to the previews.

If you missed out on some of your wish list items from my July and September shows, don’t fret! Some of those sought-after items may be returning this month. Here’s a look at what’s coming back for more…

First is my favorite crafting product of the year, the Holiday Trimmings Card Making Kit. If you don’t have this yet, now is your chance! If you’ve already finished your cards for this year, then stock up on a couple of these kits – there’s a great deal in store from HSN!


Next, I’ve been “die-ing” to tell you that all four of our previously sold out die sets will be back! Choose from florals, flourishes, snowflakes and holly…or grab all four while you’re at it! You will be absolutely amazed at the kind of results these cutting and embossing dies produce.


Our Perfect Palette Cards and Layers (better known as the “little black dress of crafting”) will be available again in both everyday and holiday colorways. These are absolute crafting essentials!

Other items making an appearance are the Christmas 12×12 papers, Christmas Vellum Quotes, set of 8 Ink Pads, Eyelet Border Stickers, Cottage Rose Stickers, Cards for Him Too and the ever-popular Watercolor Markers. It’s going to be one heck of a day. I can’t wait!

See you on Thursday,
Anna

    I loved seeing you on HSN yesterday.  Last month I ordered 4 of your items and yesterday I finally ordered the Christmas card set, 2 sets of dies and your 6×6 paper pack. I can’t wait to use everything although I’m sure my creations will NEVER be as beautiful as yours. You are so talented, I wish I had just and ounce of Anna Griffin!  Can’t wait to see what you come out with in January!

    Hello Anna:
    The shows were wonderful, as always.  That furniture is just lovely.  I can tell you put your heart and soul into them.  They all look so “Anna”.  The chair is so elegant!   I just love the way the boxes fit into them.  How ingenious!

    It was a pleasure to talk to you.   Happy holidays!

    Kind regards.

    Hi Anna- I have long been a huge fan but find I have a problem. I ordered your Cuttlebug with the autoship embodying folders when it premiere on HSN. I love the embodying folders but the handle on my Cuttlebug has broken. I can still use it as it is the silver ring around the handle that broke. Also, I ordered the snowflake and holly dies from HSN. I just tried cutting them and find that only the smaller of the holly dies cut. In addition, I ordered the Flourish die from Anna Griffin.com and I cannot get it to cut completely either. I watched you die cut on HSN today to verify that I am doing it correctly and I am. I am an experienced die cutter so I believe the problem is with the dies. I do not know how to handle these problems. I would appreciate hearing from you at [email protected] Thank you

    Shows are wonderful as always! Anna you looked absolutely beautiful and Christmasy! I thought I heard you are working on another Cricut cartridge ! Roses or florals I hope is what I heard! That would be great as your winter wonderland one is gorgeous ! Hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving, a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! Can not wait to see what you come up with for next year, but looking forward to them! Thank you for all you and your company do for us!

    Hello Anna and Team…….

    The shows are a knock-out!  Enjoying immensely.  Credit card in one hand and phone in the other.  🙂  Just wish this wasn’t the last shows for the year.

    Notice you’ve been adding images to your Pinterest Boutique!  Thank you so much for doing this!!!  YAY!  I hope you will be updating with more examples from today’s shows……crossing fingers for the Winter Wonderland cartridge ideas.  🙂  Thank you, thank you, thank you!

    Safe travels!
    🙂

    I purchased and have used your Christmas Card Kit with all the layers.  They made the most beautiful cards I have ever seen and the quality of the paper is outstanding!  I have also used the metallic card stock and using many Christmas dies have made super cards.  Thank you for your wonderful work!

     It’s always a pleasure to watch Anna on HSN. First we are meeting this wonderful talented woman, the creator of Anna Griffin, then we watch and become inspired with her beautiful cards and scrapbooking pages that she and her team work so hard on because they know how we love to share that inspiration. It really is the greatest compliment to take or come right out and copy their designs. I for one am so truly grateful that all this work they do is because they do want it shared. And why not, why not spread some of this beauty around. We sure could use it.  As always, Thanks for the inspiration Anna!

    Hello Anna:  I am so grateful to win these embossing folders.  I plan to share them with my close friends in my scrapbooking group.  They will flip over them.   Again, I must say, as I have said before, your company and team are the best at listening to your fans, answering our questions and just generally putting out top quality products; not to mention, teaching us how to use them!  It’s so rare these days.  Your personal touch is so appreciated.  Thank you again for the wonderful products.  I’m thrilled to be a part of Anna Griffin Nation!.

    Kind regards from Jarrettsville, Maryland

    I guess I missed your list but kind of worried. I bought almost everything you had on last time on HSN and set my card on fire. It has cooled down a lot because I knew you were going to be  on so doubled up to pay it off. I am hoping you will have new stuff I don’t have but know I don’t have any of your furniture. Only problem is my room is full and won’t hold another piece of furniture (at least that is what my husband told me, he said he was going to have to go under the house and brace the floor, do you think he is kidding?) waiting for Thursday.
  20. Posted by: DonaB
    It is like countdown to joy and inspiration.  I just wish you were coming on at midnight…hard to wait until 9am.  Sorry Anna, I know those long days are draining, just can’t get enough of you.  I think I have two years of recording on DVR. Love me some AG and all her awesome “things”.

    Ahhh, Anna Griffin style…floral, golden, so pretty
    with each scroll, foulard, or flourish~
    Fold a paper fan!  Emboss a metallic layer, or
    die-cut a snowflake from Winder Wonderland paper!
    Anna will teach, demonstrate, and share:
    tune in to HSN on November 14–she’ll be there!

    As always, Thank you for the inspiration you provide Anna! Your products make it easy to create beautiful and elegant things – cards in my case. I have continually received compliments about how beautiful my cards are since I started using your products. Last night I created another Christmas card with your Gold Cuttlebug, auto-ship Christmas embossing folders, Holiday Metalic Cardstock, and Winter Wonderland Cricut cartridge. I love the class and elegance you bring to crafting!

     enjoy all of your products..so pretty and elegant.  Keeps me entertained as I care for a very sick hubby. Would love to win.

    So excited about the 14th on HSN!  But wanted to make sure and not miss out on the Anna Cricuit cartridge and the Flourish dies, I ordered early and they come tomorrow…yay!  I record all Anna’s show for the awesome idea’s.  Hum…what else will I have to have…thanks for all of your beautiful products!

    Will the other set of embossing folders that were offered in September ever be available on HSN again?  I was not able to watch the shows at all and saw them online but I hadn’t gotten my autoship order with the Christmas ones in yet so wasn’t sure if they were the same ones.  I contacted HSN on their live chat and asked if they were the same as the autoship and was told YES they were so I didn’t order them. Imagine my disappointment later when I was able to watch the shows I recorded and found out they were not the same.  I absolutely LOVE all of your things and would LOVE to be able to have another chance to purchase the beautiful folders.  Thank you so much!

    Was planning on watching from my new home in OK but due to a couple of deaths in my family my move has been moved back a couple of weeks, I love the TSV Christmas card kit that I bought the last time you were on HSN.  Guess I have to make them here in Texas instead of OK.  Love your embossing folders & hope to get some of your die cutting folders. Love all of your products.

    I was hooked with Anna Griffin products the last time you were on HSN!  How is the kitten doing?  I guess he is a cat by now.  It was a wonderful surprise to hear you were going to be back on HSN!  Looking forward to Thursday!

    Anna, everything you do blesses my heart ! The beauty of your work makes my heart feel so full sometimes I think it will burst. Thanks for the beauty you share with us. I have received so many comments on the cards I made from the Christmas kit, and others have commented on the fact that the beautiful cards make them excited for Christmas ! Thanks for sharing your talents with your fans ! I have already ordered a few things, fearing I would “miss something” on the 14th !

HSN November 14th Sneak Peek: All Things Organization

It’s time for another HSN sneak preview! With just a little over a week until our November 14th shows, there are still so many fantastic things for you to see! Be sure to tune in at 9 a.m., 12 p.m. and 6 p.m. EST next Thursday for my last visit of 2013.

You’ve seen all of our last minute Christmas crafting must-haves, and now you’re going to need a place to put all of those extra goodies, right? It’s time to talk about all things organization and introduce you to my brand new line of craft room furniture!

First is our stylish new Peg Board, where you can hang your favorite craft supplies like art on the wall. This beautiful home accessory features a painted white frame and ivory peg board with hooks for your punches, craft tools and more, and even has ivory pins that snap in to hold smaller items. Think of it as a more chic version of what the guys use for garage organization!

Next is the new Craft Cart (not pictured), designed to make your DIY necessities organized, accessible and mobile! The cart (painted white just like the Peg Board) is topped with a removable ivory tray to hold supplies like markers, tapes, inks and more, with a hanging file folder rack nestled underneath for all of your favorite papers. The rack will hold standard hanging files, but of course we made beautiful ivory ones to match that you can purchase separately.   This craft room staple is easy to put together, fun to use and can go anywhere in your house. I am slightly obsessed with it!


Now that you’ve seen this functional furniture, it’s time to pretty it up even more with our storage boxes. We will have everything from paper organizers to embossing folder storage for you to choose from.  Oh, and we even have a new Stamp Binder Kit! All of these storage solutions will be available in three signature Anna Griffin patterns: Camilla Floral, Olivia Damask and Ivory Damask.  I am so excited to get everyone’s craft space looking and feeling beautiful!



And you know me, I couldn’t get through these previews without at least one great giveaway.  Comment right here on the blog, tell me about how you would use these organization solutions in your craft space and we will give away not one, but TWO sets of Christmas embossing folders next week (these are the autoship folders that will be available separately this time around).

I’ll be back next Tuesday with the winners and a look at what old favorites will be returning to HSN on November 14th!

Love,
Anna

    Hello Anna,
    Well, as usual I was not disappointed with all the new items on HSN yesterday, the new furniture is to die for!!! So beautiful and feminine
    I would love to have that. So have so many great things its so hard to choose from. When I had my new house built several years ago, I had the whole upstairs floor made into a crafting/sewing areas and love all the beautiful things you have for us. I am already looking forward to your January visit. Enjoy your holidays….

    Dear Anna,
    I have been a fan of yours for as many years as I think you have been on t.v. I have many, many multiples of your items, and could likely open a shop selling only your things. You have no bigger fan than I. I use your products practically every day, and virtually no one else’s. I have had Nov. 14th on my mind for every waking moment lately. I even purchased a few small items this week, as a week without Anna is, well, you know what I mean.
    Sadly, my husband lost his job last week, and I am disabled. Money is beyond tight. My credit is great, but getting quite a workout. After seeing your new line of furniture, I cried. Knowing I can’t even afford the pegboard is a mixed blessing. I am so miserable I can’t afford any of it, yet I guess I’m glad it is so far out of my reach I will focus on paper and stickers, and such. I can’t seem to stop that part of my brain from keeping on keeping on. I did not mean to depress you, but I only wish you could maybe come up with a less expensive group of pieces that I could build upon. Really, I don’t mean to be a nag, but I love you so much and have almost everything you create, my heart hurts. Again, sorry for being a downer, but I say what I feel. Can’t help it. I may even make myself a card to cheer me up. I know there will be SOMETHING I can get, because I will never forgive myself if I see something I “need”…
    My three cats, Sammy, Chelsea and Abbey send Georgie a big hello.
    Thanks again for being Anna.

    Wow, sure could use the peg board and the boxes.  They are absolutely beautiful as well as functional.  What do you suggest for punches.  I have quite a few and they are heavy and bulky.  Thanks in advance.
  9. Posted by: Terry
    Oh, how could I use your peg board. I have lots of ribbons, and bows, I would like them out in the open. They are too pretty not to be out in the open. Love all your products, have many of your card making kits!

    I already own four sets of your Camilla organizer items and four sticker storage binders in black/white flourish designs and they make my craft room look gorgeous!  I want to get a couple more sets of the boxes and am very interested in the craft cart… Can’t wait to see everything on the 14th!

    Anna, proves it! Organization is a BEAUTIFUL thing!

    I can’t wait for the pegboard!  It’s so much nicer than the old piece of pegboard that I currently have.  I love pretty organizers!!

    BOY, I need all the help I can get with organization.

    Oh Anna I am so in loveeeee with the Peg Board and desk!!! Oh my goodness.  You are the perfect person for designing craft room storage as you put alot of thought into each piece.  You also are a crafter yourself not just someone to put your name on product to make money.  What a dream it would be to have such a great space.  thanks for your generous giveaways and so hope to be able to win the embossing folders.  Can’t wait until Thursday.

    Anna,
    I’ve loved your designs and style from the first time I saw you many years ago.  Your new designs and colors would be beautiful in my new pale yellow craft room!
    Your embossing folders are amazing and so are you.
    Thank you for sharing your creativity and God bless you!
    I’m looking forward to seeing you on HSN next week!!

    I love this sets. I would use them to organize not only my craft stuff but also my home remodeling projects. I have papers, fabric samples, paint color swatches and magazine clips everywhere and these files and folders are perfect to keep them organize and in one place. Thank you very much for this amazing giveaway.

    Hello Anna and Team!If you saw how much organizational help I need, you’d faint on the spot!  I kid you not!  🙁   There are 4 things I am vowing to tackle this upcoming year:  Paper!  Especially the scraps that are way too big to throw out but get lost in a paper keeper….think those boxes and file folders will help.  The washi tape…the stash is growing; again think those boxes would help. I have a lot of fabric flowers.  Finally, I’d like to sort by color(s).  And I need a larger place to house the ink pads.  Oh my…………(shaking head)

    Look forward to your upcoming HSN shows!

    All the best!!

  23. Posted by: Karen Brown
    These products are beautiful……..my happy space/scrap booking room will be happier!!! Ahhhhhh! Am new into embossing and love your products. Always look forward to your shows on hsn. Thank you for your creative mind.
  24. Posted by: Debbie H
    I am putting together all of your products in one spot so when I want to craft “Anna” style, I won’t have to hunt all of your things down. It all looks so pretty together. I have items all the way back to your “other” network days and I love them just as much as your new items!! They would ALL look fantastic in this beautiful system!
  25. Posted by: SharonS
    I need to get organized.  I am trying to set up a nice scrapping space in my spare bedroom.  These are  wonderful I would love to have some of them.  I can not wait for Thursday!!

    I am disable so to have something that was not only beautiful but was functional too would be wonderful . I love your products they make cardmaking and scrapbooking so much more easier.
  27. Posted by: Judy R
    Everything there would help organize any craft room!
  28. Posted by: Linda Valoy
    I could use some pretty organization in my life. I have a small cabinet  with shelves with all kinds of boxes sitting on them. Your boxes would make the cluttered look go away. Love those embossing folders..Keep making them.. Want more and more. My Christmas cards are  so pretty with the embossing.
  29. Posted by: Nancy garvey
    Go Anna…you think of everything.  Luv all of the organizational items.
  30. Posted by: Bonita Ringler
    Oh I have been wanting a little space of my own to craft. You items are not only useful but oh so pretty and feminine!  It would give me just the organization and workspace to use!
  31. Posted by: Beverley Clark
    Just when you think it can’t get any prettier, Anna surprises us again! Everything is so beautiful and just as I would have imagined it IF I could have thought of it myself.  You make us all feel like a princess in our own crafting space and you make us want to create more.  I can just imagine opening my crafting cabinets and seeing everything labeled in such lovely containers.  What a dream come true!

    Hi Anna!
    I really need to organize my scrap room which is currently a storage room. Your craft furniture and organizing items will definitely be a great help. Thank you for all that you do!

    Hello Anna and Team:Here is a celebratory song (sung to Winter Wonderland) in honor of Anna’s HSN appearance.

    Anna’s on. . .
    Are you viewing?
    You gotta stop
    What you’re doing.
    She’s on HSN
    We’re happy again
    She’s demonstrating Winter Wonderland.

    Now my Cricut is a-humming
    And more cartridges are comin’
    In twenty fourteen
    By Anna’s team
    In addition to the Winter Wonderland.

    In my craft room I can get creative
    Using all of Anna’s precious tips.
    Holiday Trimmings really is the bomb, gals!
    I’m dreamin’ bout the future autoships!

    Later on, I’ll retire
    and make cards by the fire
    My Cricut in tow
    Cuttin’ a package and bow
    Using Anna’s Winter Wonderland.

    How I’ve loved the sneak previews
    Gotta write some more reviews.
    Perfect Palette’s the best,
    The little black dress.
    Along with Anna’s Winter Wonderland.

    In a moment we can make a great card
    And pretend it was so hard to do.
    Getting all the credit is the best part
    I can keep our secret, but can you?

    I’m expressing appreciation
    Along with all of “Anna Nation”
    As we frolic and play
    the Anna G Way
    Lovin’ Anna’s Winter Wonderland.
