I would buy the finished product...I'm not good at stitching. For the record, I love "gina-fy" as a word. Doesn't that mean you are truly successful -- when your name/product becomes the accepted term for something? e.g. "I'm going to FED EX" it. Or "I'll google that term"... Gina-fy is my new one! Thanks for sharing that ladies!

Oh....I got to see one of these live and up close and I loved it! I love to buy myself a special publication (book or magazine) every once in awhile that sinks me into a land of inspiration!

To try and live a more authentic life. However, as I work on this, I realize that sometimes it takes a lot of work to discover what is truly authentic for me -- if that makes sense. I don't believe I'm living a fully authentic life, but I'm really working on uncovering what that might be. I'm hoping that if I get better, I will be able to help my children grow into more authentic joyful adults!

Is it cheating to say The Boxcar Children. I'm reading it to my youngest, and lamenting that it is the last time reading the book for the first time with one of my own children. Makes it all the more sweet! Dear Benny and his cup...

I spent five years in Texas (Austin) and will admit, after always being in the midwest, I didn't miss winter too terribly. Now, back in MN, I will say that although winters are personally tough for me, there is something about going "face-to-face" with long winter that makes me truly savor my spring and summer days. It gives value to joys I might otherwise overlook. For me, that is a good thing!
This was sooo fun! Thank you! I love your work, Molly and Danielle's too! Thank you for the combined inspiration! Here's mine: http://ozone.oscraps.com/gallery/showphoto.php?photo=208828&title=why-then-oh-why-3f&cat=1222 Love all the layouts so far!
I'm a tad more touchy feely and not so precise or organized, but here are a few thoughts: ~ Art is not a thing; it is a way. ~Elbert Hubbard ~ Fine art is that in which the hand, the head, and the heart of man go together. ~John Ruskin ~ Art is not a thing; it is a way. ~Elbert Hubbard I have an MA in art history and this question was never fully answered, and I believe it never will be. But I will say, your creations are beyond ordinary significance. So you have my vote.

Oh this is soooo lovely! Thank you so much!
Love your work! (don't love laundry) I'm a very "blocky" scrapper and I would love to do more with brushes and add a bit of whimsy to my layouts. (Guess that is two different things.) Can't wait to see the new kit!

Hi Gina! Oh my goodness -- talk about a rich inner life -- your writing and art are more amazing than ever. I needed to read this post this morning, thank you. I'm headed to t-ball and then softball and preparing for a museum job and a few creative deadline projects and trying to breathe. You make it all seem, almost sacred, if that makes sense. And your points about goals and choosing and taking time at night, very inspirational and helpful. I look forward to reading and learning more! (ms.) Michael :-)

I was fortunate enough to be with the Muellers on their surgical day. There were actually 12 of us (family plus two of Courtney's best friends)there to support them. Believe it or not, the atomosphere was really calm. Their strength, faith, and positive outlook played a key role to the success for this day. We continue to pray for a speedy recovery for Kevin and Courtney. Continue reading

Just heard from one of the nurses and courtney's started at 8;30. Kevin's surgury started at 8:45. We'll fill you more in when we hear anything. Thank for everything. Continue reading

There is nothing our family wants more than for everyone to understand just how thankful we are for all of the overwhelming generosity and thoughtfulness that friends, family, and the community has bestowed upon us! From the Cathedral of the Sacred Heart benefit on December 5th, and the Goodview Trinity spaghetti dinner, to the Elks club pancake breakfast, and the many baskets and tickets that were sold for the Valentine's Day Benefit at Visions Event Center, there hasn't been a single selfish heart. At times like these, with the economy being so fragile and the cold weather causing illness and... Continue reading
