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 my furry babies, 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 – Dahl.  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.
