Hello! Here is my very first post!

Welcome to Anna Banana Creations!

I am hoping this cute little blog will make me be more creative for myself!
I have a whole craft room to myself filled with rubber stamps, papers, tools, two work stations, book shelves, bins and baskets and all kinds of tools and goodies that I never get around to using!  
I do the occasional swap on a Yahoo group, but that really doesn't justify the towers of paper that lurk around every corner of my room!

I decided to join a friend of mine in a craft show in November, and it's high time I got started making items to sell.
These little lunch boxes were at Joann Fabrics at the beginning of the summer and I grabbed up 30 of them not knowing what to do with them!
Well, I have decorated them and added 6 cards to each tin (cards measure 2.5 x 3.5 and come with envelopes) to match the tin decoration.  I'm planning to put a little of that paper fluff inside them to make the cards stay put in a festive way.

Let me know what you think!
Anna Banana
