Moi (om mej) Gina G.

Vintage things, buttons and lace; wallpaper sample books… junk you would not be caught dead saving…I own it.  Welcome on my  journey to finding my artsy side.  I dabble in altered books, mixed media, sewing and scrapbooking, while trying to keep a grip on my sanity in a small town in Sweden.  I have tried to blog in Swedish, but cannot bear the screams of hysteria I can hear coming from some of my visitiors…( Better the devil you know…) lol.

I make my own cards for holidays and birthdays, except when I need the fabulosity that is one of a kind by Jeanette,a  friend locally that showed me how she made greeting cards and I was hooked on ALTERED ART, mixed media and assemblage.  Who knew my madness had a name and artistic following?

Originally from the US of A,  I read more than I blog, but only when one of the 3  4 kids are not on the computer. Card carrying, dues paying member of Delta Sigma Theta, everything else has faltered.

Mixed media is my passion as is knitting, blogging; surfing the net;   I like to write and  want to learn to knit like a champion.    I really do have a job, aside from : menu planner, chauffeur, referee,  and domestic engineering.

“The Hubbs” is the hardest working man I know.  He makes my life bearable and never fails to make me laugh!  I love him because we are kindred spirits and we can’t wait look forward to empty nest syndrome.   We enjoy each others snarky comments, a glass of wine and American Football  ( GO STEELERS).

I hate doing laundry, dusting, defrosting the freezer and mopping and want to hire a maid to replace me so I can have more free time to create and blog…

Welcome to my blog 🙂

  8. Hey Gina,
    Thanks for visiting my blog. I’ve been cruising yours. I just wish I were as sophisticated with my computer skills on my blog. But then I am a bit older and did not grow up with computers. Your art work is great – love the batik arch and the skinny pages.

  9. Hi Gina,

    Thank you for visiting and commenting on my blog.
    I just took a look around yours, it all looks awesome!
    You asked me where I buy my supplies in the Netherlands. Well, we still have some shops (fewer and fewer the last couple of months!) and some good on-line shops here. That’s where I get my stuff.

    And on the blogging in 2 languages, I have to; I have relatives in the US and a very dear friend in Portugal and their dutch isn’t very good! ;0))

    Thought I’d return the comment! Very nice blog, I think I will look thou the archive! Do you happen to be a black woman?

    I always enjoy reading blogs with non Swedish girls married to Swedish men! People in my situation lol 😉

  14. You make you own cards? Consider yourself followed, admired and possibly stalked…FERREAL!

    I cannot get over how bad the greetings card market is here in Sweden..things will be bought from you!

  15. Hi!
    What a beautifully creative blog you have here – and what a brilliant future you are about to face! I am impressed, extremely impressed. My mother is doing similar things like you and I am slowly learning. I love to do these kind of things. It really sets your mind at ease.

    I hope you are considering of starting your own company with such a talent at hand? 🙂 Would be very profitable, perhaps not in Sweden (alas) but in the US I am positive!

    Keep up the wonderful work! Your blog is inspirational.
