  2. Peggy Smith Rusgo says:

    Anna I am so excited for the envelope stencils. I love it all as usual but really want those stencils. Keep it coming!! I have it all and love it Thanks.

  3. Pamela P says:

    I’m most excited about the envelope writing tool I wish I could use it to at work and in my everyday life because my handwriting is the worst LOL

  4. Gisela says:

    Congratulations to all the winners and wishing each of you a wonderful Monday.

    Anna just a note to say how much I enjoyed watching you on HSN.
    I am so very happy and delighted that I ordered your Terrific Tag Bundle. I was on the fence about this one, as I still have two unopened tag boxes. All I can say is : I just love it !
    Oh yes , I do love all my other items Ha ! I wont say how many were ordered.
    Thank you for making such wonderful products that bring such joy.
    Wishing you a happy week and a big hug to Georgie .

  5. Deborah says:

    I’m having the same issue. They finally sent an e-mail back saying they had a system problem and today 2 or my many items finally show as shipped. Then I received a notice of a returned item … one that I didn’t receive nor did I return. The item is the holiday sentiments and apparently they over-sold so they just cancelled the order and refunded my money. Not well organized in the ordering/shipping arena this time.

  6. Susie rhoades says:

    Do people share rides to the hotel from the airport hopefully when it gets closer to the event more people will inquire?i called the hotel and no shuttle:(

  7. Susie rhoades says:

    Any one like to share a cab to the hotel for the creat and craft will be getting in to the airport around 12:00. First time to the event. Thanks

  8. Paula Jackson says:

    I also am having problems with my order. I ordered 7 items during the craft special and nothing has shipped yet! I’ve emailed HSN twice and their excuse is that there was a problem in the warehouse that has been resolved. And yet my status still says it’s packaging. VERY frustrating.

  9. Linda says:

    Grama Pei just been reading all your nice reply’s sorry I won’t be there please give Anna hug from me grandma Linda jean ,
    can’t wait for my big box’s to come
    thanks’ Linda

  10. Rosie V. says:

    Hi Anna! I too wish you could alternate your Create to the west coast. I live in California and for me to fly to Atlanta and stay at an expensive hotel is cost-prohibitive. Especially when it’s just for a weekend. Last year when I looked into plane fares, I discovered that because of the time difference and the start of Create on Friday evening, I would have had to fly in on Thursday and pay for another night’s stay. Because of air line schedules, I would not be arriving in time to Create without checking into my hotel first. I don’t know if you changed your schedule for this year but I too would love the option of staying at another hotel that I can afford. Thank you for considering these comments for future Creates. Love all if your products!

  11. Barbara Newton says:

    Give her mother a ticket Anna’ that would be so awesome for you to do. Helping another human being! Wow what an act of kindness that would be!

  12. Barbara Newton says:

    I’m having to wait a month to receive all my products. Why have the show if products aren’t available. Why not have programming closer to time products available.

  13. Andrew says:

    Hi there
    I put in a query on October 1st and still haven’t heard if these will be on Craft Channel soon, does anybody reply to queries ?

  14. Roxann Higgins says:

    I got most of the items I ordered from the show. Awesome as ever! Can’t wait to get the dies. I want to try that Nordic deer! Congratulations to all the winners and we really all are winners with the great products that help us create Beautiful in the making. Thanks Anna and your awesome team.

  15. Linda Christiansen says:

    Hi Anna,
    ….. Any chance that your products will be made in the USA some time in the near future???
    …… I am crazy about them and have many but am becoming more convinced that a lot of things could be made in our country which would be beneficial for many reasons.
    …….Just thought I’d ask and maybe more companies will consider. Thanks.

  16. Karen Ashlock says:

    That would be such a good way fir more people to have access to Create.
    And a great way to visit various cities.

  17. Carol G. says:

    Congrats to winners! What does everyone think about moving “Create” around the country every year? At least alternating coasts the way many organizations do! It would be BEAUTIFUL!

  18. Mary R. Huff says:

    Congrats to all winners!

    Anna, I finally made 30 cards from the Angel toppers from last year. They have turned out so nice I want to keep them ALL but a lady here ordered angels so I will see: how many she takes.

    By the way, HSN says my Glorious card kit will arrive in a couple of days!!

    Thanks again for being our angel:-)

  19. Shannon Morris says:

    I hope everyone has a wonderful time. It is my dream to take my mother to Create. We had hoped to go this year but she had a stroke and they found another brain aneurysm. By the time she had her surgery and we found out she would be ok the tickets had sold out. I wanted to enter contest but there is no way I would go with out my mother. Anna Griffin has literally been a Life Saver for my mother because using scissors and putting together the card kits were the perfect therapy for her. She has worked so hard to come back and get back to ‘normal’. She is my Hero and inspiration. She has every card kit and scrapbook kit, we watch HSN while talking on the phone and I order the products for her (and for myself). The therapist were thrilled that she wanted to make cards and scrapbook because it helped her dexterity. They also received lovely cards from my mother. I am sad I won’t be there this time but hope to be there next time with my mother so Anna PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE have another!!! And please make more scrapbook kits! Thank you for all you do!

  20. Arleen Cappatocio says:

    Congrats to all the winners and especially the two going to scrap with Anna Griffin! Have a super good time. Arleen

  21. Carol Pope says:

    Anna, I live in Woodstock. Do you have a store here in Atlanta that I could visit or tour. Looking forward to my next auto ship of the fantastic flips. I missed the paper assortment that is double sided paper that is cut to fit. All your things are so Beautiful. Thanks

  22. Denise says:

    Congrats to the ladies who won a trip to the November Anna G. event. I didn’t even know there was a contest. I would love to attend this event; but it is extremely expensive. It is not affordable, unfortunately, for the average crafter.

  23. Grama Pei says:

    Ohh, Happy Dances all over the USA today I suspect! ha! Congratulations to Patricia Watling, Paulette Trent, Joseph, Raquel, Glenda, Patty, Alesia, and Alaine! And a HUGE Congratulations to Connie and Malinda! Happy-dancing for everyone’s big win today! (Grama is gonna have sore hips tomorrow! ha!) Fun! I’ll see ALesia and Alaine in a month! See you then!

  24. Linda DeVries says:

    Congrats to Connie, Malinda, and the other winners! Enjoy Create II, meeting Anna and a lot of Griffinites, and the $100 in Anna products. Also, I’m certain we all appreciate the frequent interaction online between Griffinites and Anna Griffin, Inc.

    It definitely needs to migrate to the top of everyone’s bucket list! – No, it should be ABOVE the bucket list in must-do’s! Its so – how to say it? HEALING! Wonderful to get something that GREAT for you. We usually tend to put others first in our lives, and i think at least once, we need to honor ourselves in a big way. And what a great way! ha!

    Great contest Miss Anna! Loads of fun!

  53. Jill M says:

    My package from HSN should be arriving here today or tomorrow! I can’t wait to open it. I have been rearranging my craft room to make room for everything! I may have to ask my husband to take me on vacation when HSN has its next craft day. It is either a vacation or an addition onto the house! My craft room is divided between the Cuttlebug and all the accessories and the Cricut Explore and accessories. Fortunately they do overlap in the paper & Xyron sections!

  54. Anna Griffin says:

    We ran the contest via Woobox, and the gallery is closed. But, you can search #takemetocreateannagriffin in Facebook and the posts will pop up for view.
