Stampin-Mami's November's Featured Artist.........Gina K....(applause!!!)

Every month I will hopefully be bringing you
Stampin-Mami's Featured Artist...
This month's featured artist is none other than Gina K.........(read and enjoy)
**by all means leave your comments I would love to read what you think!!!!**

Q and A with Gina K
SM: What got you into stamping or the paper crafting world?
GK: * A friend of mine invited me to a Stampin' Up party. The rest is history. LOL!
SM: How did you come to the conclusion of designing your own stamps?
GK: **Many times I just couldn't find the right stamp so I would draw a little picture instead and then color it in. My family and friends said that I should make my own stamps. I didn't believe them but then, more and more people started to tell me that so I thought I'd take a chance.**
SM: What was your first ever stamp?
GK: ***If you could remember, lol. The first one I bought was the stamp set Nice and East notes by Stampin' Up. The first stamp I drew was The Three Amibos.***
SM: How long did it take you to notice that stamping was your true passion?
GK: ****About 3 minutes. Actually, once I tried it, I spent the next 6 months going to every stamping store and big box craft store that I could find.****

SM: How many Gina K elves do you currently have working for and with you?
GK: *****My friend Judy, when she has time. My husband when he has time and my two little girls when they want money.*****
SM: If you could take a trip to anywhere in the world where would
it be and with whom?
GK: ******I would go to Italy with my husband and my two daughters. I'm actually a little afraid to go because I don't think I would ever come back. (I'm Italian, yes.)******

SM: Do you ever regret going full force into the Stamping world?
GK: *******Never. I love what I do. I sleep fast so I can get back to it.*******

SM: What was the best stamping time you ever had?
GK: ********I hosted a stamping event at a Bible camp a couple of years ago and that was great. It was so great to have both my creative side and spiritual side fed in one retreat.********
SM: Where would you consider opening up another store? (in what state?)
GK: *********Not right now. I am pretty happy with just one and I love having my online store. My hope is that my two daughters will work with me as they get a little older. That would be the ultimate!*********

There it is folks.....I hope you all enjoyed reading this as much as I enjoyed asking!

GINA.........I wanted to thank you Gina for honoring me with this Q and A,
I can truly say that this was a privilege of all privileges, not many people
get to talk to the one person that they admire. Since I have come onto the
Stamping World Frenzy I look forward to getting your newsletters
and daily blogs everyday.

I hope that other Stamping Companies will be as gracious as you when I ask
them to do a small feature on my blog.
You are the Stamping Queen at least on my Blog.
Although my kids do not know how truly important it was for me
that you did this, they are all very excited and happy that Mom got
an interview with Gina K.

My next goal will be to finally meet you one day in the not too distant future,
Maybe my next trip will be to your little corner of the world!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Thank you so very much.

my apologies.... this Sweet 15 is driving me nuts..... I will pick a winner by this Sunday so that leaves a few more days for anyone that wants to enter..... please tell you friends to stop by and see the Because I Said So Candy!
Evertime I look around there is something else i forgot to get or do ... and I will be the first one at the party to hit the bar, lol......
I will be posting a few pictures of the party on Sunday..... also ... I will be posting (hopefully today) the following things that my mom and I did for the party!
  • The Invitation
  • Table Centerpieces (they are beautifully done by my mommy)
  • The Party Favors ( those were easy ) lol
  • The Quince Doll with the Ribbons..(thats a pain to pin but had to get done)
  • oh and the never Seen before Butterfly Pillow and Purse..... ( Thanks Mom)
  • oh yea and the balloons that my sister ordered for her party,, those were totally awesome they have butterflies all over them,,,

At this point whatever has not gotten done will probably not get done and does it matter anyway... i mean really alot of people are not even going to look at the small details, they are will join us in all our craziness and it all boils down to Good Grub, Good Music and Definitely Good Drinks.... but alcoholic beverages are good either way so long as they give you a small buzz, Please any family members that happen to read my blog, please please Drink responsibly, I will not be available to bail you out if your and I mean that with all

So with that said..... thanks for stopping by my Blog today and be on the look out for the Because I said so Blog Candy winner on Sunday and for all the shtufff i mentioned above....:)

Have A Great blessed Day!
