Meet Gina of Miss Gina Designs!
Tell us a little about you . . .
I have been married for 23 years to a wonderful man and I have two sons, ages 13 and 11. Our boys keep my husband and I hopping between golf, football, track, travel baseball, Boy Scouts, etc.! We are constantly “running”! I was trained as a fine artist and received a Bachelors of Fine Arts degree from Virginia Commonwealth University. I enjoy many different creative venues – these venues change as my mood changes! I love painting, sewing, embroidery, jewelry, woodworking, clay, papier mache, etc… Bright, bold, vibrant colors and prints inspire me!

A little about your entrepreneur journey so far?
The trip so far has been wonderful! Miss Gina Designs is a relatively new venture. The business was formed in June 2008. I have made many new friends along the way and I am very much enjoying networking with other wonderful mom entrepreneurs. The venture has been a sensational learning experience!

Anything else you’d like to share?
I am very motivated and excited about my new business and I am touched by the overwhelmingly positive feedback I’ve received thus far. I like to keep a positive attitude – one bad day is not forever – and I think we all should strive to live each day to its fullest. I love this quote from Kay Lyons – “yesterday is a cancelled check; tomorrow is a promissory note; today is the only cash you have, so spend it wisely”.
