About Me

headshot2013BW500Hi, my name is Lisa Arana and welcome to dahlhouse designs. I began this crazy artistic blogging adventure in March 2009.

Who am I?
I’m a wife in love with her husband, an adoring ‘mom’ to her 2 furry girls, a hiker, a baker, a computer/science nerd, a full time worker and weekend crafter.  I’m obsessive yet lazy, a procrastinator with lists, and one sarcastic lady who loves to laugh.

Why dahlhouse designs?
It all started at a young age.  I used to make cards using those uber cool (at the time) computer card programs for friends and family.  My hallmark was dahlhouse cards based on my maiden name.  Clever right?  So to carry on my legacy, I now have dahlhouse designs.

This is my paper crafted world full of cards, projects, challenges and friends.  Since beginning this wonderful blogging adventure, I have taken on some design team assignments, been published (Paper Crafts Magazine and CARDS), started making videos, became a stamp illustrator and found a fabulous community of friends in fellow paper crafting addicts!

Hope you see something you like and if you do please leave me a comment! I love little love notes.

I have cards and watermarks for sale too!  Check them out in my sidebar.
