About Maria E

HELLO! My name is Maria. Project Manager by trade. Creative at heart. When I'm not working my "9-5" and balancing multiple school/sports schedule, I am creating something, enjoying downtime with my family, and catching up with TV shows like The Good Wife, Luther, Game of Thrones and The Voice.

Hi Maria - I'm so flattered you asked! I'm not sure which invite you mean - there were two pottery ones but the one titled "pre-teen pottery party" will be up for sale shortly - the files are in Minted's hands. :) . Regardless of what you decide to do, I hope your daughter has a wonderful birthday party! Sounds like it will be a great time!

Hi Maria, Thanks for the sweet comments! As I was reading your profile, you and I share the same thoughts of using our kids name as the design name. How cool is that! Minted is awesome for us stay-at-home moms to design, have fun and learn. I'm a bit obsessed about it but hey it's gives us the passion to design. Best of luck in this challenge.

Thank you for your kind comments! I'm also fairly new to the stationary world and think the Minted Community is an awesome way to go – you're off to a great start! Good luck and keep having fun with the design work P.S. your kids are adorable :)
