With the passport covers I made, these matching luggage tags (two) make the perfect traveling combo. I've really enjoyed the bright colors the paper and felt have allowed me. Tomorrow I begin incorporating the same style but with my photos of foreign places. I can't wait to see how they turn out.
You can find these and other luggage tags in my etsy shop. Thanks for all of your support. 2010 has been a great year for Anissa Designs and I'm looking forward to an even more amazing (God-willing) 2011 :)
I've just created a new line of fabulous handmade passport covers and matching luggage tags.
I've been traveling all over the world the past few years and have found that I have the habit of shoving other things in with my passport (such as tickets!). Because of this, I've found the need for a passport cover that is secure but quick and easy to access.
Not only are they stylish and one of a kind, having the felted velcro closure adds a lot more security to the passport and it's easy to open and close.
The vinyl cover is easy to clean and is made with 12 gauge vinyl so it's strong enough for everyday use. It's then sewn with sassy stylish printed card stock papers. To secure the design, I then sew the cover and complete with detailed felt closure straps (sewn in complementary colored thread) and sturdy velcro.
Fits most international passports, including United States, (but does not fit Canadian passports)
Custom Orders are easily and quickly filled. Please feel free to contact me if you are interested in this design as a checkbook cover or a journal.
Make it easy for airport security and border patrol to see the front and back of your passport without removing it from the protective cover by these sassy protective passport covers.
Overall dimensions: 5 1/4'' x 7 3/8'' (opened)
Folded dimensions: 5 1/4" x 3 11/16" (closed)
Pocket dimensions: 5 1/4" x 1" (inside one cover)
Pocket dimensions: 5 1/4" x 2 5/8" (inside other cover)
TO PURCHASE: Please visit my etsy shop to purchase your own handmade passport cover and/or tags :)

These are some photos taken in our dining room of my wedding bouquet on its way out. As crazy as it seems, the wedding is now almost three weeks behind us. Russ and I have been as busy as a hill of ants in summer trying to get our house ready both for ourselves and some downstairs' renters.
With the move from Korea, the new house and the wedding, "Anissa Designs" has been in a hiatus of sorts. Autumn seems to want to show up in Savannah, but Indian Summer (at a high of 89 degrees) is having none of it.
This weekend I will have a tent sent up with Hallogreen in Daytona with a booth of my photos, photo cards, photo jewelry and coasters. A national non-profit, Hallogreen is also designed to be a fundraiser for The Fair Share Urban Agriculture Project:
"Fair Share" is an Urban Garden Project of Salt of the Earth, Inc. a 501(c)-3 nonprofit organization. Our volunteers can raise food for low-income households in need and help install vegetable gardens in backyards, schools, churches, and other community groups. We also provide people with the opportunity to participate in a community garden if they would like their own space for growing fresh food for themselves!"
25% of Anissa Designs sales is going to support Fair Share and another 25% is going to World Vision's First Giving:
(By purchasing photos and artwork this weekend) "Your gift will provide hardworking families with livestock or farming tool that can put food on the table and savings in their pockets. Along with the animals and farming supplies, recipients will be trained in proper care and management of their resources, as well as how to market their wares - things like dairy products, eggs, fruits, and vegetables. This is a wonderful way to express your support for the world's poor."
Thanks for joining us in this effort. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions.

Does anyone know how June got here? We've had a busy few months here in Korea. Russ and I recently returned from a quick trip to Tokyo and I hope to have the photos up soon. Have a look at my etsy shop and see what's new. Just in time for Father's Day and graduations, I've designed cufflinks, pins and pendants featuring my photos from my travels.

A few weeks ago, Russ and I ventured up to the roof to check out the light and angles of our little metropolis. I'll be the first one to admit, upon first sight, I was mortified by the "architecture" in this country, but I must say, such buildings photograph well for their color, light and super-ability and agility of contrast.

And as another year has passed, I find myself back in my sweet Savannah. I'm so excited to return to this little creative hot spot where my friends, new and old, continue to inspire me as they aspire to higher and higher creative endeavors. Tomorrow, if you happen to be in town, come by and say hi at the Savannah Market Bazaar held downtown by the Robinson Parking Garage from 10AM-3PM. I will be featuring my new work from this year abroad in Korea as well as pieces from my jaunts to Bali, Bangkok and Hong Kong. In addition to framed pieces and cards, I've decided to make my art more wearable in the form of beautiful signed glass pendants. If you can't make it, please feel free to visit me at my etsy shop anytime.
While you're in the neighborhood, do pop around the corner and visit the annual Telfair Art Fair and check out the work 83 artists, including my friends, Lori Corbus and Scott Griffin.

I am one happy girl! One of my pieces, "Blue Light" (from my photos of Paris Collection) was featured in last month's online issue of Woman's Day magazine. Thank you Amy and ShopSCADfor helping me have my first real publication.

Sah Wah Dee Kah!
Please visit my Etsy Shop to purchase my new series of beautiful archival photo prints. A percentage of the proceeds will go to support the work of the Duang Prateep Foundation in their helping of Thailand's poor. It was an amazing trip and I hope to go back at the end of September after finishing up here in Korea. We will be working together to create a modern home accessories design line. I'm so excited for this newest challenge and I will be sure to keep you posted! Kab khun kah (thanks).
Having just returned from an amazing service trip to Thailand, I am selling these thai silk elephants to support the Duang Prateep Foundation. As a guide with Lifeworks Inernational, I and 22 others learned a tremendous amount about the Thai culture and were able to help with the foundations various projects. From orphanages, to schools to rehab centers, DPF has been a support and voice for Thailand's poor. I'm looking forward to working with them in the near future to create a design line that will assist them in their goal of sustainable development. With the global recession, it's understandable that giving in many areas has declined. Please lend your support by visiting these sites and going to my Etsy Shop for these elephants and Thai photos. Half of the proceeds from the sale of these elephants will go directly to the foundation. Many thanks and kab khun ka!
