Thanks Ashley! I've been centering all of my text on these journals, not sure why! I'll give it a try a bit higher - thanks again for the suggestion :)

Hi Ashley! Thanks so much for your feedback on Glory to God. I totally didn't see the tombstone but now that you mention it, I do. Not sure if I have time to update and with 3,000 entries, I highly doubt it's a contender. Best of luck in the competition!

Hey Ashley, Thanks so much for your comment on my tag design… I was told drop shadows do not print well from an employee so I was trying to avoid them. My design originally had them :( I deepened the shade of the tag a bit, leaning a bit more grey… do you think it helps or no? http://www.minted.com/design-rating/182763

Thank you, Ashley, for the constructive feedback on my "Lamps" design - The illustration is much stronger without the text! It's funny because before originally submitting, I kept staring at it and thinking, "something about this seems rather dumb..." Crazy how we sometimes need other people to point out the obvious :) Thanks again!

Hi Ashley, I just noticed that your recent entry "Phases of the Moon" looks very similar to one that I had submitted in a previous challenge and recently re-purposed into a free downloadable desktop wallpaper on my blog. I'm sure the similarity was unintentional on your part, but wanted to bring it to your attention. No hard feelings, but here is the link to my previous design: http://www.minted.com/design-rating/75024

Hi Ashely, thank you for your personal comment regarding my Hip Hello design. I was just trying this out as a lark, it is a layout I would personally like for my nieces who are 18 and 22. I don't really feel it fits the Minted customer, it is too modern/trendy and fits neither a women or a young girl. But I love using hot pink, I can't get enough of it. You will see my design style evolve and mature as I figure out my place within the Minted challenges. Thank for all your help and support, it is appreciated. Cheers, Robin

Hey Ashley! Thanks sooooo much for the advice on the non-script "and" for my Scripted design! It's the kick in the butt that I needed to get me going in a direction where I was happy with the design. Let me know what you think (and you can tell me if you think it sucks, too :)).

Dear Mrs.Ashley, I love your work! It's very inspirational for a graphic design student like me to see such whimsical fun pieces. I just gawk at every piece in awe. Thanks for being wonderful! :3 - Lala

Hi Ashley! Thank you for your comments on Geo Garden; they were questions that I was having myself so I will see if I can finesse it a bit. I appreciate the feedback.

ahahaha - you're such a creeper!! I figured 'Josh' is a pretty common name, but you could be a stalker - in which case, I'm flattered, lol.

Thanks for your comments & help on my "proud mary" graduation announcement. Worked on it a little more to add some dimension to the top banner. Appreciate your amazing eye!

Thanks so much Ashley for your feedback on La Mer. I've been really struggling with that design, and it's so nice to know that I may be close to being finished with the darn thing. I so love and admire your work!

Thanks for looking at my site-in-progress Ashley. I fixed the sidebar. The funny elephant and poop logo is for a product they sell at the Atlanta Zoo...it's elephant poop fertilizer. Pretty funny!

Hi Ashley - I just wanted to say thank you for your support {from one designer to another} regarding your feedback/suggestions to a contest design that just happens to use the exact same inspiration and similar design to one I already have for sale on Minted :) It's designers like you - that have integrity and poise - that make this whole "creative" online world easier to get along with and remain positive when it seems there is such an overwhelming amount of "inspiration" for designers out there - I'm sure you know what I mean! ;) Anyways - it's much appreciated. xo ~ Andrea
