What's happening this week, and a personal note...

Hi Everyone,

I wanted to stop by to say hello and to let you know about a few things coming up this week along with a personal note. For those of you who aren't interested in NON-stamping stuff, I've saved the personal part until the end so you can pass it by. :)

We will have two new videos on StampTV this week on Thursday and Friday. We are running a little behind in the studio due to a variety of things going on and I'm sorry for the delay! I know so many of you wait patiently all week for Wednesday to arrive so I wanted to give you a heads up about the one day delay.

A Sale is Coming....
This weekend, starting on Friday, we will be bringing back the Crazy Clearance Bin. We have tons of great stuff at Crazy Low Prices coming to the bin. So, if you are planning to grab some of our new release stamp sets, you may find some other great products at super low prices to add to your order. Stop back on Friday morning when the Crazy Clearance Bin goes live along with a few other sale items. :)

Look for this button on Friday at Gina K. Designs. It won't be there until Friday morning, but this is what it looks like so you'll know where to find the crazy deals. :)

New Ink Colors...
We have eight new ink colors that just hopped on a truck and are headed to our warehouse. We are VERY excited about them so look for them along with a new StampTV kit release coming the middle of this month. More details to come about the new kit!

And now, on to something personal...

Last Thursday, Tom, Rina and I boarded a plane and headed out to New York where we had a chance to visit with Alicia.

It was Rina's first time in New York and she loved it! (My kids have east coast blood.) If you've never been to New York, add it to your bucket list right now. Everything is big in New York. Even the sandwiches are several stories high.

The reason we went to New York this time is to celebrate Rina's Sweet 16. Alicia bought her a ticket to see one of their favorite groups, Il Volo.

Il Volo are three pop-opera singers from Italy and they are fantastic. (Yes, my girls love opera. Who'd a thought?)

Here is a clip of their music...

They were appearing live at Radio City Music Hall.

So the girls spent the whole day getting ready and they looked so pretty!

While the girls were at the concert, Tom and I roamed around New York and spent a little time at  Rockafeller Center. 

One of the days, the girls went down to SoHo to visit some of the trendy shops so Tom and I spent the day visiting Ground Zero and the World Trade Center Memorial. This is the Freedom Tower. It's absolutely beautiful!

This is something I have been wanting to do forever. My grandfather was one of the electricians who worked on the Twin Towers when they were being built and my dad was born and raised in New York. Being from Philadelphia, Tom and I spent TONS of time in New York growing up, so I feel like New York is my second home.

I can't begin to tell you how moving this place is. And if you go, take the walking tour. Don't do it on your own. You will miss out on SO much!

They have these beautiful trees all over the place and they ask you to take acorns from the site and plant them when you get home. This way, pieces of this spiritual site will spread across the world through the seeds of this sacred soil.

This was written on one of the walls in the museum. It was so moving and I felt so much spiritual energy everywhere.

The next evening, we headed to Herald Square and visited some amazing stores including a 4 story Victoria's Secret.

After a little bit of shopping, we grabbed the subway and headed to Little Italy to one of our favorite restaurants, Novella.

I loved this long weekend, spending time with my girls and hanging out with Tom. Although the trip set us back a day or two at work, it's important to stop once in a while and take time to spend together.

This month, we are in the middle of some absolutely CRAZY stuff! All really good but very time consuming and our lives are going to change a lot this year. (I can't really talk too much about it right now but I will fill you in as soon as I can.)

In the meantime, I just wanted to say thank you, for all your support, friendship and love. Our family and our little company and staff appreciate you so much. Your comments, conversations and the way you share your stories with us... well... it all means the world to us. 

Isn't it amazing how, close we all become, even though we come from all parts of the world? Our social community at StampTV and our passion for paper crafting brings us together like a big family. For that, I am so very grateful. For you, I am so very grateful.
