Faithful Companions

A dog doesn't care if you're rich or poor, big or small, young or old. He doesn't care if you're not smart, not popular, not a good joke-teller, not the best athlete, nor the best-looking person. To your dog, you are the greatest, the smartest, the nicest human being who was ever born. You are his friend and protector. - Louis Sabin

It's a Birthday Sale!

Ok, I'll admit it... today I am 47 and I do not dread birthdays at all! In fact, I look forward to each and every one and count each one a blessing! I am so grateful for another year! :)

To celebrate --- well, this is one way I'm celebrating today --- I am offering a 25% discount on anything in any of my shops. They are not marked on sale. You will have to email me (lanamanis (at) with your wish list and mailing address and I will send you a PayPal invoice with the discount. This sale is good through midnight tonight.

Here are my 3 Etsy shops:
Simple Joys Paperie
Lana Manis Designs
Honeysuckle Lane

I may not be near the computer as I will be spending time with my sisters, but I will answer messages this evening.

Have a wonderful day!

Take care & God bless,

At Last...

Just imagine the stage is set and as the curtain slowly rises
you hear Etta James singing..... At Last.......

And so, I feel like singing... at last.... the love tokens are ready!
I have 13 framed valentines listed on the Simple Joys Paperie blog page.
Here's the link:

Thank you for being ever so patient with me. I appreciate all of you so much! :)

Take care and God bless,

P.S. As time permits, I will gradually move the love tokens over to my Simple Joys Paperie Etsy shop.

Some Day...

 ...some day I will have an update ready on time. I had good intentions of listing a collection of love tokens last night, but good ole Mr. Migraine had other plans.

So... I'm sharing a few sneak peeks of what I have finished and I hope to reveal the entire collection tomorrow night.

Have a blessed weekend ♥
