Hello, Hello!

I am Anna Ignacio, a wife to this techie and a hands-on mother to this spirited little girl. Previously based in Singapore, we are now settled back in Manila, Philippines.

For the past few years, my world has mainly revolved around my little family. I set aside being an Interior Designer in exchange for changing diapers, cleaning, cooking, doing the laundry and managing a home. Not the most glamorous of jobs, but pretty fulfilling in its own way.

Getting married and becoming a mother has changed me considerably, but one thing has remained the same– I still have a huge love and passion for art. I love getting creative and working on projects where I can use my hands to create something new. Getting crafty is my therapy, and throughout the years, marriage and motherhood hasn’t stopped me from living A Crafted Lifestyle.

 A Crafted Lifestyle

I’ve been online for over a decade and a half, blogging under my online handle @annings, since 2000.

Over the years, I’ve been jumping around numerous blog platforms, hosts and domains, using each space as a medium to document life and my everyday experiences. The daily musings of a wife and a mother can be pretty colorful, but not exciting enough to warrant day by day lengthy posts, so I wanted to do something different this time.

A Crafted Lifestyle will be my platform to inspire others to create and pursue the life that they dream.

If you’re into DIYs, scrapbooking and crafts, or if you’d like some tips and inspiration on how to insert a little art and creativity into your daily life, then I definitely have something for you.

Sit back, relax and let me show you how fun and easy it is to live A Crafted Lifestyle.
