Hi! I’m Gina and I have loved Winnie the Pooh for as long as I can remember, the book is one that I always keep near. Some of my favorite people in the world call me Auntie Gina, and they are the ones who I started making cards for, and still do a lot of the time. I live with my husband and my dog in beautiful Portland, Oregon. I have MS and utilize making cards as a form of therapy. I love reading and going on adventurers with my husband and our nieces & nephews.

There was something that I saw the other day that said ‘You know you have Multiple Sclerosis…when you are already tired tomorrow.’ That is absolutely true for me. In fact, with the heat, I think I am already tired for the next week already as well. I am so glad that nap time is soon…

The heat has definitely made it hard for me to make cards. It seems like a good idea to distract me until I need to use the heat gun. Where there is a will there is a way through. My nephew heard me utter ‘There is more than one way to skin a cat’ the other day while doing something, and wanted to know what that meant. It is always one of those moments that I realize that the phrase is actually kind of awful, but I explained that it was my way of keeping from cussing or quitting and reminding myself there is always more than one way to do something.

Letting the colors do what they want. It is fun to watch them do their thing. I think sometimes it can be hard to just let go and let whatever happens happen, but that is truly the beauty sometimes. I love this technique because it makes me remember to let go.

My little ladybug girl has grown up and is now a bit more of a Nancy Drew. They do have a tendency to do that. Growing up I mean. It is fun and a bit frustrating, but I love seeing what comes next. I also have let them all know that as Auntie I reserve the right to always be able to refer to them by my favorite nicknames for them. I am pretty sure that is in the Auntie contract.

Right now thinking about snow is rather pleasant. It is stupid hot here right now. I kind of look like the poor reindeer on this card. Then again I kind of look like him right before Christmas also. I really like the reindeer on this card!

Patience is a gift that I tend to be extremely thankful for. I lose it, just like everyone else, but I tend to hold out a lot longer before I do. I have no idea how I have the patience I do, I think reading has a lot to do with it. I definitely have more in some situations than others. This card strangely was a bit of a test trying to figure out how to make the D shape, but in the end, I think I did ok. There may have been several other things at the time trying them also, but that is a different story…
