I have been involved in the stationery and greeting card industry for almost 15 years and absolutely adore what I do. I currently freelance my illustrations/design work to companies in Canada and the US all in the comfort of my home and most days in my pajamas. I love the creative freedom and motivation Minted offers and I’m hoping it will allow me to create stationery that reflects my personality and style.

I think I am canning it. :)
You are amazing Danielle! Now let's talk about your entries in this challenge. WOW is all I have to say. :)
Ok just needed a new power cord thank goodness. Here is how I changed let me know what you think. I so appreciate your help. I really struggle with the right graphics on the fonts.
Danielle, I agree on your fixes, but my computer crashed, aarrgghh and I have to wait. Thanks for the help!
Danielle, thanks so much for the feedback! I have changed again. Let me know if you like better or if I should change back.
I've had the same experience from this group - being here has really made me push myself and grow as a designer. You are doing really amazing work and I love your style! :)
Hi Danielle, I know how you feel. I did not know about horseshoe lore until I moved to AZ a few years ago and hung a horseshoe the wrong way. Robin ;-)
Thank you for your comment Danielle! A pinwheel is a great idea!!!!
Thanks for your helpful comment Danielle regarding my 'Bugs' poster, it's made a big difference.
Thanks for the feedback, Danielle! Really appreciate it:) I LOVE your style!
Hi Danielle, Thanks for the good advice on my wrapping paper. I am playing with your suggestion now and I like how it's developing. May spark another idea. Thanks again
So glad to make your morning! Your design will make about a billion little girls' mornings EVERY DAY!
Hi Danielle. Thank you for your suggestion on my "Girl Power" design. I did make the stars larger and that made a huge difference. I truly appreciate the feedback. Stacey
Hi Danielle, you are most likely correct. I lightened the colors by 15% but it is hard to see on the screen. I just don't want the colors to lose their pop and get too sweet. But my design as it currently stands is more like a brochure cover than a piece of stationery. I have a week to figure it out! Cheers, Robin
Hi Danielle, thank you for suggestion on my 'super monogram' design. I do need to refine the concept and lighten the background. It is funny how after you post a design the flaws become noticeable. Cheers, Robin
Danielle, thank you so much for your sweet compliment. Appreciate your support so much. Hey did you ever hear anything from Minted on the Birthday party invites?
Thank you so much Danielle!
LOL - well I ADORE your work and I'm definitely stalking it ;)
Thanks so much for the nice comment - I honestly feel like I'm still trying to find my style and just keep hoping I'll figure it out one day :)
Aw - thanks so much for the nice comment! means alot to me - I love your work so much!! :)
thanks for checking out my owl and giving a comment... that kind of feedback is so very useful. Just wanted to ask... did you mean both the name and the bottom line or just the date and time?
Thanks for giving me your feedback. For a minute, I thought you were "e" for 'enough" until I read more carefully :) Glad your 2 year old liked it. I did make the background darker, what do you think?
Hey Danielle, thank's for the double hit on my design! That really made me smile :)
Hi Danielle, I made the bunnies white. :) Let me know what you think. Thank you as always.
Danielle, i made few change based on you feedback let me know what do you think of it now..http://www.minted.com/design-rating/92352?filter=all&sort=createat
Wow, never even thought of doing that. What do people do when they use their own photos after it is for sale? I guess I should be worried about what looks good for winning. :) Thanks for all your advice Danielle. Really nice of you to spend so much time. Have a great weekend! Chris
Danielle I made the changes you recommended. Let me know what you think. It may still need something. :) Thanks for your help! Chris
Danielle, thanks again for your help with my Holiday card. I made some more revisions and I would love it if you could check it out. :)

Hi Danielle, thanks so much for your feedback on my invite. Would love your thoughts on the changes! http://www.minted.com/design-rating/90678?filter=all&sort=createat
Hi Danielle, thanks for all your feedback. I've made some changes and toned it down to make the cupcake the focus. Thanks for helping me edit as I do agree there was a lot going on. If you have time could you have a look at it again and let me know what you think?
Thanks again. Smeeta
By the way, I'm loving your work!
thanks danielle! You are very sweet. . .and talented!
Thanks for the great feedback on the pull toys -- you totally caught what was bugging me -- it needs another pattern. I mixed things up a bit, but I wish I could add one more panel b/c I can't decide which one to lose, and I agree the duck is what makes it baby, but I think he's my fav. grr!! I think I'm going to sit on it a little over the weekend. Thanks so much for the input :)
Congrats Danielle on your win in the greeting card challenge. Great design! Chris
