Meet Gina

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. However, I am always reading something, I have a life long love for books. I've fostered a creative side my entire life, evolving over time to my current passion: paper-crafted greeting cards. Some of my favorite people in the world call me Auntie Gina, and they are the ones whom 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.
