Hi, I'm Anna Frances!

I am a crafter, a dabbling artist and illustrator, a bookworm, a geeky gal, a writer...

...wife to Mike, and mom to Avery Amelia (oh, and Bean and Link, too).

I'm a creative gal with big dreams. I've always had the itch to create things, ever since I was a little girl! I started out on a path to becoming an elementary school teacher, getting my B.A in Elementary Education from Franklin College of Indiana, a great little liberal arts school. I worked in schools for awhile, and then went back to my old stomping grounds of working in libraries. I am currently a children's programmer at the library, where I get plenty of inspiration for creative endeavors!

I live with my husband, Mike, our two dogs, Bean and Link, and our daughter Avery Amelia in Indiana. You'll usually find us playing and reading together, or going on long walks and fun adventures.

When I'm not spending precious time with my little family, you'll find me dabbling in all sorts of art, working on writing and illustrating children's books which I hope to get published someday, or curled up with a good book!

Thanks for stopping by for glimpses of my art, snippets of my writing, peeks at my ideas, and bits + pieces of my life!
