The Road to Delight

With a degree in English Literature, a hand-crafted accessories design company and a lifetime of working with my family of entrepreneurs, I have woven myself the life of an artist by writing, photographing and creating entrepreneurial ventures dedicated to delight.

My company, ANA, is based on the principle of “looking at what you love.” A line in my bio says that “I knit, sew, glue, tape, plant, bake, try, think, feel and live like I am starring in my own movie.” I have a long list of things that I love and my company is based on bringing those things to my customer, whether visually in a photograph on a ANA Delight magazine cover or emotionally through surprising a friend with a bit of delight or physically when they simply want to have a bracelet with a Private Tour of Paris on it. I design what makes sense to me and I am grateful that people respond so strongly to it.

I actually started my business in 2003 when women were seriously asking to buy my cigar box purses. They noticed me carrying one, saw how I had lined the inside with fabric and wanted one of their own. They simply needed me to make it happen.

I had seen a cigar box purse on display as a prop – it was not for sale, but I had to have it. So I got myself a few cigar boxes and made purses to take on vacation. Then one day my Mom and I went to the mall in Palm Beach and no less than 10 people in 2 hours asked me how they could get one of my purses. My favorite questions were: “Do you take Visa?” and “What’s your website?” I mean it, the glue was barely dry and I had people clamoring for my handbags. I thought that making & selling purses would be fun.

I had no idea how “the enthusiasm of strangers” would affect me – I loved making people happy and interacting with women – that is what propels my business. I have stories a mile long that I hope to someday turn into a book about starting a craft & design business.

An important of starting a business was to establish a brand identity for ANA. I designed ceramic logo hangtag for my purses, chose signature colors (hot pink, white & black) for my correspondence, designed a customs stamp for my business cards “Passed As Super Cute”, and launched a website complete with e-commerce. I wanted to start strong so that people knew I meant business.
Being organized and completely committed to your brand/company impresses people. I want my customers to be proud of me and feel good about owning something that I made, photographed or wrote.

I have written 3 books, Moments of Delight, Paris: Delight in the City of Light and Finding Delight. I enjoy speaking to groups about finding delight in everyday life.

Accepted payment methods

Paypal Mastercard Visa American Express Discover Apple Pay Klarna Giftcard
Accepts Etsy Gift Cards and Etsy Credits
Returns and exchanges
As I quote another Etsy seller, "I want you to be happy. Please contact me with any problems." Isn't that wonderful? And it is true. I love what I make and I want you to too.
PayPal (which includes CREDIT CARDS)
This is the easiest, fastest and safest method of payment. During checkout process you will see a link to the PayPal site where you can submit payment immediately.

No PayPal account? That's okay. PayPal can still process your credit card info as payment, just choose PayPal as your payment method and follow the prompts for non-account holders.

Just make sure that your Etsy and PayPal addresses match.

Cancellations: Once you click "Buy" you have one week to make payment. After one week, if your payment has not been received, your order will be cancelled.

I will ship within 3 days, once payment has been received, unless the item purchased is made to order (Delight Totes).
I currently am set up to ship only within the United States. The box size that my totes/purses require make the cost to ship internationally quite high. If you are willing to pay $35+ for international shipping, message me and I would be happy to arrange it.

I am trying to keep postage charges to a minimum, but I also find that US Postal Priority gives me (and you) the confidence that you will receive it (in the USA) within 2-3 days, and I like that.

I always obtain proof of postage, I cannot, therefore, be held responsible for items lost in the mail.
