Hey Carol. Thanks so much for your comment. I'm still having letterpress issues.... I have white space around the photo, is that still a no no? The box isn't technically overlapping, but maybe it's still to close?

Hey Carol I saw your comment on Jessica's design about not being able to see the design in the poll. This isn't a fix, but looking on your phone or iPad is nice because you can zoom in. Might be helpful until the fix it. They need a magnifying "square" tool like shopping sites use. That'd be really cool! Anyway, just thought I'd chime in. :)

Carol, what a sweet note. You made MY day! So many gorgeous designs once again this year and you have so many great ones! I wish I was going to make it to NSS this year. I had planned on coming but then I moved in December, my grandmother passed away in February and I just didn't get around to planning ahead. I will definitely be there next year no matter what! I would love to meet you and all the other Minties. I imagine it being such an inspirational few days. Have a great time, post pictures and best of luck in the holiday challenge!

Thank you for the helpful comment on my "bold and bright" design. I was trying to figure out what needed adjusting and it was exactly what you said!

Hi Carol! Thanks so much for your feedback on my Joy design. Your comments are always so helpful. I was just thinking of you yesterday... you were one of the first (maybe the first) designers that reached out and gave me some much needed help when I first started submitting designs to Minted. Thank you! Glad to be back. :) Loving your submissions!

Carol, will you look at my edit for "cake toppers" (just did it so right up front place). Stronger colors from former pastels. Better or worse?

Hey Carol! I meant to tell you yesterday how much I appreciated your helpful advice. I love getting great feedback like that, and you have a great eye for seeing what isn't working and how to fix it. I love it! I was so frustrated because I liked my concept but it wasn't coming together like my sketch, so I value your suggestions! You rock, Carol :)

I'm embarrassed to admit it, Carol... but I might have missed my own win if not for your congratulations! "Verdant Swirl" was awfully far down the alphabetical list of jury's picks... and I totally missed it while skimming the email from Minted on my phone!!! :)

Thanks so much for the head's up, Carol! I was waiting to see when and where it was going to be, so I can figure out logistics with my kids & their activities. Now that I know, I am definitely planning to be there. Looking forward to it!

Ha! I would NEVER want to kill you... you've been ridiculously helpful! You know I actually tried the square shape—thinking it would lend itself better to the design and frame the plate—but it felt very tight..like it had no breathing room. I'll revisit it again, though :) Thanks!!

Hey Carol, I just wanted to thank you for your encouraging compliment on my wedding design "Wild Ones." That's exactly the kind thing I needed to hear to keep me pushing forward despite the feeling that these kinds of designs wont win. :)

Hi Carol! I think what makes it similar is really just using Veneer in the same wording on top (which you definitely shouldn't change cause it sounds great with the line below!) so maybe if you just chose a different font it would have a much different feel. But if you want to keep it as is then please don't feel you have to change it, I don't mind. Yours appeals specifically to a certain audience and it has a different layout so it's ok to have both submissions in the contest. Thanks so much for checking with me though, I really appreciate it! :)
