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!!!!**
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.
