My life revolves around a life-long passion for art, design, pattern and color. And while I also love graphic patterns and strong typography, I enjoy making a mess with pastels, watercolor and mixed media. Minted is the best place to explore my design personality. I am proud to be part of the community!

Carol, thanks for taking the time to give me some constructive feedback on Minuet. I appreciate it a lot!
Thanks for staying in top of my edits. You rock!
Carol, thank you so much for your note on my Burst letterpress design xxx
Hey Carol, thank you SO much for feedback on my fruitful day entry. Your thoughts and suggestions are really great. I'm going to sit down and see what I can shake out. I appreciate you taking the time to give such thoughtful feedback. All the best to you with your holiday launches and wishing you generous sales throughout the year!
Hi Carol thank you so much for your nice comment!! You totally made my day:) I'm loving your save the dates your winter boughs is one of my favorites in the challenge I just love the rustic, natural feel it's just beautiful!!
Thank you so much for your nice comment, Carol. I love the way your style has been developing and how you are always trying new things. You have so many beautiful designs!
Carol, thank you for there like on "Sending our love", much appreciated!
Thank you for your sweet comment this morning Carol! It made my day and it's only 7am! :)
Thank so much for your input in my poll, Carol! And also for the likes :) I'm loving your entries too-- esp. 'all about the love'. Beauty!
Rusty??? Are you kidding? They are great. I think we all are a little Holiday crazed. :)
Thank you so much Carol for your like! Love your designs and wish you the best of luck in the Holiday entries!
Thank you so so much Carol for your wonderful words on my Royal Guard art piece,it's overwhelming and still unbelievable but I truly appreciate all the love & support this wonderful (understated word) community has given me :) I still have to look at the winning designs,I have too many things on my plate now, (which is life as it happens...) I wish you good luck for Holiday. Thank you for being so supportive :) <3
Hi Carol, I used Baskerville for now, part of my challenge is to use fonts I already have or can download without a fee. I wanted something close to Mrs. Eaves, and not being familiar with it, the closest looked like Baskerville. I do like the new template and layout, background a soft off white--suggested by another minted artist previously. If this is closer, great. If not, give me a shoulder tap ... many many thanks.
Thank you Carol, these are most welcome suggestions on my design for that something extra--pow and punch. Good deal!
Carol, thanks so much for taking the time to look that design over again. I owe you big time! I did actually have that other baby in my kit, but after staring and staring and staring, I ended up sticking with the original baby because I just can't resist him ;) Thanks so much for all your help and feedback. I feel like I owe you commission if that one happens to get a pick!
I should clarify, too. The part that is giving me the most trouble is the "I'm too excited to" or "I'm much too excited to" line. I added in much so that "too excited to" could go together on a line, but it looks a little long. Would it be better with the break like this: "I'm too/excited to"? I kind of felt like "too" and "excited" should be on the same line. Also, this comment is getting so long haha. Thanks :)
Carol, your wording advice was invaluable on my Christmas Every Day design! I can't thank you enough. I made some changes and hope it reads better. Those lines sure are a bugger to split nicely! If you ever have a second, I'd love for you to take a final look! Thanks again. http://www.minted.com/design-rating/608874
Carol, the changes look great! I am so happy you feel my suggestions helped ;) I do have one more idea... would you consider changing the border to foil and possibly having the stars touch the border. Similar to the style Kristy did in this design...http://www.minted.com/design-rating/592974
Just wondering about switching over to gold foil submissions, how did you do it? I know if you delete it, you will not be able to re-submit.
Hi Carol, Thanks for taking the advice. It looks better! Just wondering if you have consider continuing swash in the "l" ?
Hey Carol - The stars definitely caught my attention! I think they would look beautiful foil-pressed. I am more than happy to give some suggestions if you do decide to make changes... 1. ) might help to make the message more general since it will be sent to families. 2.) adjust the stars so they are centered on the card and even on all sides even if that means they will be cut off on the edges. 3.) maybe try a solid gold border to balance out the boldness of the stars. 4.) shrink up the white space by making the photo area a little longer and making the holiday message only 2 lines. I hope that helps ;) Please let me know if you need me to explain. Can't wait to see your non-foil designs. Haven't had a chance to go through all of those yet! Happy Designing!
Hey Carol! Thanks for much for your feedback! I've updated the copy and would love to know your opinion again if you have a minute. Thanks for all your help! http://www.minted.com/design-rating/606534
Just looking through your entries …..so many cool and creative and beautiful designs!!!
Hi Carol thank you very much for your great suggestions I was able to redesign in a circular diecut I could not get the square to work. I was wondering if you get a chance to take a quick peak and let me know what you think. Once again thank you so much for taking the time to offer such great advice:)
Hi Carol, thank you for the like! :)
Hey Carol! Thanks for the feedback on my wording in my "Christmas Every Day" entry. I've been really toying with the exact phrasing, so your comment really helped! I'll probably change it before the editing time is up :)
Hi Carol! I edit my comment, but I can't guarantee it makes more sense. LOL I'm bleary-eyed, too!
when i saw that there was a like for happy indeed it really made my day. All the best to you as well. Your designs are so beautiful.
Thank you so much for the likes on my Christmas card submissions, Carol! I truly appreciate it :)
Hi Carol I made some changes I love the font you suggested, I've never used it! If you get a chance to peek I would love to hear your thoughts. Once again thank you very much for you great advice.
Thanks, buddy! <3
Hi Carol thank you very much for your amazing suggestions! I will work on them tonight. This design has me struggling, so I really appreciate you taking the time to help. (Two cents ..more like gold) :)
Carol, thanks so much for your suggestion to use a darker navy blue for my 'Shine bright' design. Would love for you to have a second look, thanks ! http://www.minted.com/design-rating/571579
Ah, totally get not wanting to match the photos. I was matching more the foil, but I guess it would be pretty photo dependent wouldn't it. All your entries are looking fabulous btw! :)
Hi Carol, thank you for taking the time to comment.I really appreciate any input. xx
Thanks for your spacing tip on "Gospel of Peace", Carol. I think it feels better now. I have a poll up for photo choice, if you hae a minute. http://www.minted.com/design-rating/570005
Hi Carol, thank you for the help, I deeply appreciate your time and inspiration. Always love to see your work! Have fun with these the Challenges!
you should definitely submit the one you were working on!
Thanks so much, Carol, for your helpful suggestions on my "reJOYce" design! I may put "JOY" back into it and submit as foil, if I get a chance. I appreciate your feedback!
Hi Carol thank you very much for the like:)
Thank you so much for the helpful advice on my design. Made it so much better! :-)
Carol thank you so much for the advice on my design! I wish I had time to edit but I don't, but I agree with you ! I'm just glad I was able to sneak a few entries in. And an Anti-shower baby party is my kind of shower too!!! :)
Thank you Carol for your like on my design mod baby!
Best of luck Carol, they are all great entries.
Thanks for your like on "Wake Surf" Carol!
Thank you so much Carol for the congrats and compliments, I really appreciate it.
Carol - thank you so much for that sweet comment!
Hello, Carol! Thanks for your kind and very helpful comment! Really appreciate it :) Good luck in the challenge!
thank you so much for the suggestions Carol! I was feeling something was off about it and i love your ideas
Thanks Carol for the kind words. Love all your entries!
Hi Carol Thank you very much for your great suggestion! I will give it a try tonight. Wow you sure have some gorgeous entries!
Carol - You are so generous to take the time to look over my entries and then take the time to offer such wonderful advice. When I make the changes you suggest I am always so over whelmed by how much better they look. Can't thank you enough, your kindness is very touching.
Thank you Carol for your likes, they are SO appreciated. Not to impose but any feedback you have especially on my font choices (which I always struggle with) would be greatly welcomed.
Thanks so much for your helpful feedback!
Thanks so much for your comment, Carol! I really appreciate each and every one of your comments, ever! :)
Carol you sweetie! Just home from trip and opened your delightful card. So thoughtful. A+ on all of it, especially Chris...
Thank you once more, Carol! You completely made my day. It is the best compliment to my work I've ever heard. Because usually creating the art for me is a painful process. I'm happy that it looks effortless.
Carol, thank you so much for the like. It is important for me to know others opinion, especially when they are art directors :)
Carol thank you so much for the lovely compliment! It made my day! Your "Natural Elements" design is my favorite! Great submissions too!! Good luck!
Hi Carol! No need to thank me... You have some lovely submissions. I especially like the one with the landscape watercolor! So pretty! :)
Hi Carol, not sure if the final design for "Simply Love" is quite right but definitely better than before as I submitted it just now with no time to spare. If you have a minute let me know what you think. Thanks again, Monica :)
Bah ha ha, I couldn't help but put Trump when I'd put Donald. You are right, it's totally not gaudy enough ;)
Hi Carol thank you for your nice comment!!
I agree ….mind you.. I could eat everything in Italy!!
I just love your new watercolor entries
Carol, I am sending you a hug across the miles for the comment that you left me on Simply Love!!! I didn't want to do a last minute poll because a lot of people are still working and it's down to the wire but I knew that design was "not right" yet. Will see if I can make those changes in the next 30 minutes! Thank you again!!!
Thank you so much for your lovely comment, Carol!!!
Thanks so much for your kind comment, Carol! I really appreciate it.
Thank you Carol. Wish you for many sales to you too :) Love the holiday cards you have up for sale :)
Hi Carol, A+ for your comments on my design: thoughtful and well written AND WONDERFUL! Made my day. Thanks for taking the time to comment. So appreciate it C. Sue
Hi Carol, Love Futura and good catch on the plane...it's suppose to be there, I took it out while searching for the correct kind or aircraft and forgot to add it back in....ugh. Thanks so much. I thought the nod to adult coloring books could be fun! Love your work and respect your opinion.
Hi Carol thank you for the nice comment and like!! I love you latest entries your watercolor is beautiful!
Thanks for the comment on Wayward Moon. You hit it on the nail! I am fascinated by Asian styling and dramatic colors! Best of luck, Alison
Thanks for the like Carol!
Hi Carol, thanks so much for your comment on my Floral Hello. I really love your Mid-century Monogram design, hope it will be one of the winners!
Hi again ...ok I will! I love your insta posts they are fantastic you've totally inspired me! Have a great day
Hi Carol thank you very much for taking the time to look at my design and offer such great advice!! I'm going to work on those changes today.
Wow Carol, Just perfect. So glad you won. Congrats. Sue
Thank you Carol!!!
Well Carol, they are really good. :) Hugs back. Chris
Thank you so much Carol for taking out time and giving me suggestions. I can actually see how better it's looking from the original submission. Good Luck to you too :)
Hi Carol, I have changed the font to futura and uploaded a grey version also. Take a look if you have a minute. Thank you so much again for all the suggestions and feedback.
Thank you so much carol for your suggestions on my "twintroducing sweets". I made the changes. Please let me know what do you think
Hi Carol - thank you for your helpful comment! I actually left it like that for voting, it just looks better ha! :) O.O
Thanks so much for your kind words on Speckled Border! It really means a lot to me! I love the lettering on your Rejoice submission... It's fun to design for letterpress :)
Thanks for the comment on my Geo Frost card, Carol! That's exactly what I'm hoping other people will see too =)
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?
Thank you so much for your comment Carol - it mean so so much to me!!! xx
Hi Carol, thank you very much for liking my "Peace Love and Little Bird" design.
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. :)
Hi Carol, I did a new poll too based on your suggestions. Let me know what you think if you get a chance. Thanks immensely. I so value your expert advice. http://www.minted.com/design-rating/378576
Sorry Carol, I meant that I like the gray for the names like Kim, but would like to see the gray with foil in any color....actually silver might be lovely.
Carol, thanks for the great feedback! Can I ask what "ghosted" means? I am a novice in this world. :)
I think I missed "Furry Christmas"! ;)
Hi Carol, thank you so much for your comment to help me improve my design, it's look more clean now. Thanks and best of luck of your design.
HI Carol, I just love it that you tend to like designs that are a bit out of the usual. I think you and I are the only ones who like my "Joy Dots." So good to see you in NYC. It was a wonderful trip/party/show.
Hi Carol, thanks for your support on my Swiss corporate holiday card. It is not for everyone but I could resist. Cheers!
Thanks for the sweet comments, Carol. I really appreciate it. I'm loving so many of your recent designs and I'm looking forward to seeing you soon!
Good luck to you too carol!!
Hi Carol, I wanted to thank you again for your suggestions on my "Floral Key". I went ahead and changed the flowers for a colorful version and I'm so happy with my final entry that I couldn't thank you enough! :)
Hi Carol, I have bumped up the weight on the supporting text, played with different colours for the name but went with the lighter colour as it seemed a better balance. I'm really pleased with my entry and it's all thanks to the your suggestions. Can't thank you enough!
