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!

What is your business and where can we find it?

Miss Gina Designs, LLC is an online gift boutique featuring a wealth of handmade gift items. We offer a wide variety of unique and trendy handmade gifts for babies, prissy little girls, rugged young boys, ladies and men. Many of the items offered can be customized with embroidery and handpainting. You will find unique baby burp cloths, lovely purses for women, great grilling aprons for men, handpainted items, complete baby sets, adorable tooth fairy pillows, embroidered kitchen dish towels, custom tote bags, cute baby Tag-A-Poos, etc. Come and browse our website at www.missginadesigns.com.

Is it mom-owned, invented, created . . .?

Yes, Miss Gina Designs, LLC is mom owned and created, with a lot of help and support from my husband.

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!

Where else can people find you?

Website: www.missginadesigns.com / Blog: www.missginadesigns.blogspot.com / Twitter: http://twitter.com/missginadesigns / Etsy: www.missginadesigns.etsy.com / Indiepublic: www.indiepublic.com/profile/MissGinaDesigns

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”.
