Roxanna Andrews' Profile

About

Hi,

My name is Roxanna and I work for a Christian missions organization. I write children's books in my spare time and I love to craft. I am selling my handmade cards and my books, The Adventures of Super Pig, and would love feedback. I have a new book coming out soon so please check back. I get great reviews from the kids who've read, (or are read too). The Adventures of Super Pig are stories with what I hope is a good life lesson told in a fun, non-preachy way. They are very fun stories to write. =}

Writing is something I love and dreamed of being an author at a young age, but alas, things don't always work out the way we would like. Out of school I went to work for a Bible Translation Mission and though I wasn't writing the next great American novel, I was doing somethng amazing, I had a part in giving the written word to language…

Writing is something I love and dreamed of being an author at a young age, but alas, things don't always work out the way we would like. Out of school I went to work for a Bible Translation Mission and though I wasn't writing the next great American novel, I was doing somethng amazing, I had a part in giving the written word to language groups that had never seen their language in writing. The sense of worth it gave these people groups to see their words written for the first time,and to learn to read it, is indescribable. So many go on, to get PHD's and return home to work with and help their people have a better life. The Word of Life, gives new life.

While working there, I began to write my Super Pig books and encouarged by friends and co-workers, finally published. It is so amazing to see your dream held in your own two hands. My goal with my books is to show kids they don't have to have Super Powers to do the right thing and having good friends is important.

And I LOVE making cards!

I didn't want to learn card making at all. My sister kept trying to get me into it, but I know myself, when I get into something I go all out and I was already into other things. Well one day my sister was told she had breast cancer. I decided to start making cards to spend more time with her and keep her a bit distracted from her treatments. Well once her treatments started she had no interest in making cards, but I was hooked and couldn't stop. Now I'm knee deep in stamps, paper, punches, glitter, markers and other fun card making things. You should see my craft room, what a MESS!

By the way my sister is cancer free 10 years now. =}

I SO enjoy creating cards. Some of my cards are stamped by hand using ink and other are digital, which is the latest and greatest thing. Stored and printed from my PC, no worries about storage space in my craft room and no worries about making a bad printing with an inked stamp, which happens often. I have found some wonderful designers and artist who let me sell their designs as long as I give them credit.

I add new cards all the time, so please stop by often to see what's new and enjoy your stay. Thank you for stopping by.
