The worst juggler ever...

Hi Everyone,

I thought I would take a moment to share a personal post with you. If you aren't interested in personal stuff, I promise, I will be back to stamping very soon. (Just disregard this post and head straight to your stamp room!) :)

So life...

Yep. It's gets crazy sometimes...

I was so grateful this week to be part of an online show called This Crafty Life. Viewers send in questions and I had an opportunity to answer them live on the air.

One of the questions was about how I juggle business and family and what advice I have for other women wanting to go into business. My initial thought was, I don't! I'm the worst juggler ever! Can't you see that? Balls dropping everywhere?! I am just about the worst juggler there is!

But I want you to know that it's by choice.

I could have gone to the winter CHA every year and really promoted my business. In fact, I'm think that my business would have be a LOT bigger if I was a master networker and put myself out there.

But Rina has a swim meet over that time every year. And I didn't want to miss it.

You see, I made a commitment to myself and to my family that the order of importance would always be
then business.
Business last.
But why?

Well, the way I look at it, I can always make money but I can't always be in my daughter Alicia's latest film project in college. Or hang out on set with her while she is making her magic.

This is what we did last weekend. Tom and I  played the mother and father of her lead actor in her latest clip for her film.

Here is Alicia with her actors and camera man directing one of the scenes. (She's really good at this!)

And how lucky am I that I got to be part of this! 

This is what I did yesterday morning at 6:00 AM. Rina needed senior pictures featuring her swimming life so we kind of broke into the high school pool and had a super fun photo shoot!

Here is one of the photos that I took.

And of course we had some funny ones too! Think Little Mermaid, part of your world...

And of course the fierce competitor... with arm floaties... LOL

Again, I will never forget us bargaining our way into the pool, pretty much bribing the custodian with donuts and promising not to get in the water... fingers crossed behind my back... Good times.

And then there was Wednesday when I had a doctor's appointment in Madison and decided to stop by my Mom's house for a little bit. A little bit turned into a few hours and let's say I made it back home in time to get ready for bed.

But you know what? 

My daughter Alicia is going to graduate from college soon and who knows where she will go next. 

Rina signed to swim for Minnesota next year so she will be off to college.

My mom is going to be 89 years old. Say no more.

Time with family is limited. I know I should have been recording a new StampTV video this week when I was running all around with the kids and my mom. But, I wouldn't trade that time for anything in the world.

You see, I am not rich. I have a tiny two bedroom home. I have 12 year old cars with 200,000 miles on them. I have no fancy toys, (other than my stamping stuff.) I haven't had my hair cut in almost two years. 

But what I do have is something that can never be taken away from me. 

It's my memories. 
My time well spent. 
My close connection with my children.

See, you can always make money but you can't get back time. And no matter how much money you have, you can't use it purchase the time back.

Once Rina is off to college, I will have a lot more free time! You guys will get so sick of me posting new videos and new ideas, you won't know what to do! LOL! And it's just around the corner.

So, I want to apologize for the many balls that I have dropped over the last year. I hope you understand how important Gina K. Designs and StampTV are to me. But when my kids call, I will always let the balls fall and run to them. I know you guys would do the same. 

And by the way, I made the best card ever last night and I will have a new video coming up but it won't be up until next Monday.


Because Rina has a swim meet all weekend and I will be working on my bleacher butt. :)

Much love,
Gina K.

Sneak Peek 1- StampTV Holiday Kit

Good morning everyone!

Although I LOVE to push autumn as far as I can, it's time to start thinking about holiday projects. So now is the perfect time to release our brand new Sparkling Christmas StampTV Kit!

Here is the first sneak peek of the Holiday Season stamp set, (one of two sets) that comes in this new StampTV kit.

Seriously, can you stand the cuteness? Wait until you see the rest. And the color palette in this kit is just amazing!

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!
