BIG10 SALE and a BIG10 Story. :)

For many of you who have followed me for years, you already know that my youngest daughter is a competitve swimmer.

She's had quite a ride along the way!

Rina started swimming competitively around six years old but she actually learned to swim at age two.

 Ages 2, 6, 12 and 18. 

She broke a state record at age 12. She was invited to a USA Zone Camp at age 14. When she was a freshman in high school, she was the first high school girl state champion swimmer that McFarland high school had ever had.


She swam at many national meets throughout the years and became pretty fast! In her junior year, she decided she wanted to keep on swimming in college and started looking for the perfect school. She was recruited by four Big10 and other colleges and she ultimately chose the University of Minnesota!


In the fall, she moved into her college dorm and began college training with her new team.


As a college freshman, she has already posted many new lifetime best times! She's very dedicated to the team and we only got to see her for two days over Thanksgiving and three days over Christmas due to her rigorous training schedule. Certainly not long enough to unpack anything!


And now, she is at her very first BIG10 meet as a Baby Gopher. 


Tom and I are fortunate enough to be able to be here and watch the her and her team swim this week and we are really excited! It's been a long time since we got to see her swim or got to see her at all! 

We just want her to have fun and enjoy the experience of the BIG10 meet. (She's already proven herself this year by posting best times and scoring points for her team.) We hope she just relaxes and enjoys the moments. She's certainly worked hard and done everything she was supposed to do. Hopefully she will come away with a great experience and she'll be ready and excited for the next season!
---------------------------------------------
Just to have some fun,  we are having a BIG 10% off sale at Gina K. Designs! (This sale is in NO way is affiliated with Rina, the swim meet or anything else to do with swimming. This one is all about STAMPING!)


We have lots of items back in stock too including many stamp sets! And we will be adding some more items throughout the week as inventory continues to arrive in our warehouse.

This coupon is NOT valid on orders already placed. This coupon is for new orders only and is subject to the merchandise on hand. If you leave items in your cart and an item sells out, it will get removed from your cart so don't hesitate if there is something you want. We can't give rainchecks on this coupon.

Also, keep in mind that your order must be $75 AFTER the coupon is applied in order to qualify for the incentive set. 

But to use the coupon only requires a minimum purchase of $10.00 so you can just get a little something if that's all you want. :) Use regular checkout and not Paypal express so that you can add the coupon code. You will still be able to choose paypal at the very end.

I hope you enjoyed my little tour down memory lane! And Happy Stamping!

Gina, thank you so very much for your fun site.  I came here and watched videos to learn new techniques before I joined.  I've been a member for a long time and love all the fun ideas, stamps and people.  Thank you for all the effort you put in.  This is a great place and is much appreciated.  The Yearly Challenge was difficult, but fun.  Thank you for another opportunity to win some of your amazing product.  There aren't too many places that offer prizes for participating in challenges, so this is extra special.  Thanks for sharing your love of playing with paper with us!

Even though I'm 500 miles south of you, we too have snow here. The day started with ice fog, and was followed by snow. The streets and driveways stayed clear, and what snow there is will be gone in two or three days.

I do remember the heavy lake-effect snows in Fox Lake, Illinois (just a few miles south of the Wisconsin state line.) As a kid, I could walk up the build-up and reach the roof of the house. The only vehicle that could get through was the milk delivery truck with those big tires. He would deliver milk and eggs to each house while also transporting any school kids to the bus stop at the highway. Ah, ancient memories!
