And Hope Designs began in 2020 out of a need to be creative when wedding photography was no longer an option due to a fourth child and a relocation.
Anna took up painting and, in time, created cards and prints that were designed to bring joy and encouragement. It all began with 5 cards, one of which is still a bestseller - this quote from Corrie Ten Boom resonates with lots of people! A lot of her products are based on things that she loves - gardening, baking, the Bible, motherhood, florals and botanicals.
With a passion for good quality and paper goods, all her cards are printed on premium lightly textured card, and all other products are printed locally with the best materials so that everything she makes exceeds expectations and is a joy to give and a delight to receive.
The name And Hope Designs comes from the verse in Romans 5:5 “ And hope does not disappoint us, because God has poured out His love into our hearts through the Holy Spirit, whom He has given us.” What assurance!
Anna has spent large chunks of her life in England, France and Scotland. She now lives in Belfast with her husband Iain, and their 4 young children. They’re at an age where they love to be involved so your order may well be lovingly stamped and/or posted by a young postie helper.
