starting over.

Sometimes you just need a fresh start.

Not because anything is really wrong. But you just need something new. I decided to move my blog here to blogger for a variety of reasons. I like how easy blogger is to use. And I like the look. It's easy to change. And change is good!


Please subscribe here to my new blog so you can stay up to date on everything from new products to coupon specials to what's going on behind the scenes.

New colors
We've changed the colors of our website and it just makes me happy. Who mixes orange and blue? Me. And I love it!

Pre-cut stamps.
We love them. Tom is busy working on many of our past sets so we will be adding more sets into the pre-cut department. We will keep you posted. Last I saw, both the new Autumn Splendor StampTV kit and the Lovely Labels 1 stamp set is now being packaged pre-cut.

My eye
It's doing well. My cough is almost gone which makes me happy because no coughing means less pressure and faster healing. I really feel blessed that it wasn't WAY worse and my field of vision wasn't disturbed. Even if it never gets any better than this, I can live with this. But I think I would die if I couldn't see to stamp anymore or if I couldn't see my beautiful girls grow up, swim, play lacrosse, ugh. I can't even think about it. I'm Very blessed.

And thanks to all of you. You have all been so kind and supportive. And very patient. I appreciate every single one of your comments on StampTV, Facebook, my blog and all of your emails and messages. And mostly your prayers. I know they helped big time!

I am exicted to get back to work on StampTV and in my stamp studio. :)



So bring it on! I'm ready!
Hugs,
Gina K.

  68. Welcome to blogger! I love the ease of use too. Because I'm not a computer geek for sure! I think if it hadn't been this easy, I'd never have gotten my little blog off to a start.
    I'm so happy to hear that your eye is healing, and the cough is going too! Will keep praying for you. Really happy that you're back!

    ReplyDelete
  69. So, so happy that you are feeling better! I'm still saying Prayers for continued recovery.
    The new blog is wonderful - thank you. Now get some rest and take care of yourself. We'll wait... we're not going anywhere, so you just continue to get better!

    ReplyDelete
  70. SO glad you are feeling better, Gina! I'll be praying for your recovery to continue smoothly. We tend to all take what we have for granted (I know that I do at times for sure), and it's a good lesson to all of us to take a moment and thank God for our sight that we need to be able to stamp and to enjoy seeing all of the cards that everyone creates. I appreciate learning this lesson through your experience.

    Congratulations on both your new site and having pre-cut stamps, I'm thrilled with that! Just ordered some new ones but I don't think they are the ones that are pre-cut, that's OK, in time they will all be that way and it will be wonderful. Still thinking about the Stamp TV autumn kit, it's a beautiful one!

    You DO need to rest, I agree with the others, that is key. We can all wait for your amazing tutorials until you're completely recovered, it will just make us appreciate them even more, if that is possible!

    Blessings to you and to your family too. We just celebrated thanksgiving in Canada, so we've been thinking of all we have to be grateful, and it's a lot, especially when we have Christ. Take good care, and thank you for all you've taught me already, I'm so very grateful.

    Hugs to you,

    Joanne

  71. I love the new look of your blog and Stamp TV! The colors are just so fresh and fun!
    I cannot thank you enough for changing over to the pre-cut stamps!! They are fantastic and make life so much easier! Not that I'm lazy but I sure do appreciate not having to sit and cut out all of those stamps. I love it that I can pull them out of the box and be ready to stamp in 5 minutes!
    So glad your eye is healing and you are feeling better! Take care and stay well!

  83. Yeah and double Yeah! We were so worried - a retina detachment is so scary - glad to hear things are going well. If I ever have a bad cough, I will remember your plight! So crazy. Still can't believe a cough can do that.

  97. Gina, I am so happy to hear you are doing better.
    My husband's retina was detaching, and I know the worry & fear. You must've had the "face-down" recovery he had?? It was tough & challenging for sure!
