You always want to know what everyone’s favorite thing is, and it’s so hard to choose. To be creative, I decided to write you some lyrics that you can put to the tune “My Favorite Things”. FYI: There are too many AG favorites to include in this song, so I somewhat generalized. Hope you enjoy it.“My Favorite Things”Full layouts on pages and greetings on cards,
Fantastic flips used to convey my regards,
Pop ups that cheer and tug at one’s heartstrings…
These are a few of my favorite things.Perfect palette colors and pretty pocket set,
Various layers, and I am not done yet.
Items from which creativity springs…
These are a few of my favorite things.Paper crafting tools and scissors for snipping,
National craft month and five dollar shipping,
HSN boxes that UPS brings…
These are a few of my favorite things.When the sale ends,
When the bill comes,
When my supplies run thin…
I simply remember my favorite things,
And then I just hope I win.

I was hoping for the TS to be the Cricut air 2! And Lilac?! Come on! You had me at Lilac, lol!! I recently just celebrated by 45th birthday in February and anything amethyst is me. I am a new to Anna and her products and started out with the cuddle bug over a year ago and I have been hooked ever since. I am also new to crafting and find that not only is it therapeutic but I love the time that I spend with my girls making beautiful cards and all of the great craft projects for school. I am a mother of 11, yes I said 11. 2 off in college and 9 at home and in Catholic school and I have to say I have been missing out on all the fun that crafting brings with us as a family. We had beautiful Christmas cards this past year and I have to admit, the best Valentine’s Day cards!! My 9 year old has a birthday coming up in April and we have been waiting for the Cricut to come back as a TS until I made that purchase. Unfortunately I missed out on it back when it was a TS a few months ago. I am so excited and ready for the HSN craft event and know that my girls will be making sure we fill our supplies up and we need to get our Cricut for endless possibilities!!

Thank you Anna for all you do. You took a busy mom who works 2 jobs and gave me back a smile when I have that time crafting by myself and with my family. So excited for March 8th!!!

In celebration of National Craft Month, we are launching a series of videos where you can craft along with Anna using many of our most popular products. They are fun and easy to accomplish, so get out your Paper Tricks 3 dies and let’s get crafting!

We hope you are enjoying our month long celebration throughout our social media channels. If you haven’t already, hop over to our Facebook page to join in on the party and giveaways. We would love to have you!

Bye for now,


Happy National Craft Month!
