I have had many interests over the years, but they all stem from the same place - a passion for creating and problem solving. Now, I'm staying home with my daughter and working on design and photography part-time.

Thankyou Erin for your helpful & lovely comment on my Far East Fantasy. I really appreciate it. Now that you & other fellow Minties have given me some great feedback,I'll definitely try to incorporate that in my design. Loving your Holiday designs, so refreshing & whimsical.
Hi Erin, thank you for the like on my Record Year entry, it made my day :) I've really enjoyed seeing your entries in the holiday challenges, they have been fantastic!!! Best of luck!
Hi Erin I just wanted to say I love your entries in this challenge. Your Mother Bear is one of my favorites it just so beautiful!!
Hi Erin, thank you for the like! Good luck in the challenge! :)
Erin! Thank you so much for your valuable feedback on my Spread Cheer design. I'm so flattered that you love my lettering. I tweaked a few things and have a new poll up. I think I agree with you that it can work without the border. Thank you so much, again, for your help!
Hi Erin, thanks so much for the lovely feedback. It's not out of line at all! This design has been such a headache because of course the more elements there are the more design choices there are. I added the detail to the nest to add a bit of texture but that is impossible to do with a lot of the illustrations given their size. I will see if I can come up with a middle ground:)
Hi Erin! Thanks for the note :) Your design looks great!!
I hear you, Erin! I am struggling with a few of mine too and wondering which challenge to enter them in. Maybe ask some others for feedback on that again on the Facebook thread? post a version of it as a non photo design next to the photo version?
Thanks for your feedback on my design :) Good luck!
Thank you Erin for letting me know. While I've called US my home for almost two decades, I still find cultural references I am not aware of . Best of luck, you have lovely designs
Hi Erin, thanks so much for the like on my Celebrate the Wonders design. Best of luck to you in the challenges! :-)
Thank you for your like on my 'Wonderful Collage', Erin. Best wishes to you!
Erin, I realized I never followed up on your helpful comments from last year - thank you so much for helping out a Minted newbie. I appreciate it!
Hey Erin, Thanks so much for your feedback on my 'Pastel canopy' wedding invite. Created another colorway in black. Would love some feedback if you have a moment. Thanks once again! :) http://www.minted.com/design-rating/465804
Hi Erin, Thank you for the like on Sanctuary. I really appreciate it. YOu have some fantastic graphics! Courtney
Thank you Erin for your helpful input on my design poll for Love Chase. Will definitely try your suggestion. All the best on the challenge!
Hi Erin. Thanks so much for taking the time to leave me feedback on my save the date entry, Beach Fun. Your comments were very helpful and much appreciated. - Jessica
Erin, thank you so much for the feedback on my card. I received different feedback and tried the combo of all suggestions. It's made me realize and appreciate how much goes into this process that others do all the time. Thanks again, and good luck to you - your work is always so lovely.
Happy to help Erin! Your design is so simple and clear now and really stands out with the retro texture you added too. Love seeing your work. Best of luck!
thanks for the feedback, Erin! I appreciate it.
hey Erin - thanks for your comment! I did mean to submit them there, as I envisioned those two images as being great for save the dates - sorry if you don't like them. In general, I do mostly submit to art challenges, though (at least I will - I'm just starting on here! Great work, btw.
Thanks Erin for sweet words on my Embellished Frame design :)
Thanks Erin, for your kind comment on my framed geometric baby design. It was actually based off a wedding invitation design I had submitted and then tweaked to make a frame. Definitely fun to create ;) Good luck in this challenge! You have so many awesome pieces yourself!
Thanks for your sweet comment on "Unwrapped", you made my day!
Hi there Erin! Just wanted to take a minute and thank you for all your great advice! I so appreciate your time and thoughtful feedback. Cheers!
Erin...thanks for the advice! I needed another set of eyes. So appreciate:)
Erin, thank you soooo much for all your helpful comments!
It's funny how it looks one way in photoshop, but then looks dirty on screen! I updated it again. Thanks again for your continued help on this one, Erin! good luck with everything! xo, Carol
Hi Erin, thanks for your comment on my on target design. I fixed the poor lad's head. I think it looks better. Good call! See what you think when you have a minute. Thanx!! http://www.minted.com/design-rating/393685
Hi Erin! Thank you so much for your suggestions with the Sweet Love design! I ended up going with the yellow. :) The last name is actually Givens - haha! I definitely see what you're saying though. Maybe the image was too small to see the dot over the "i" during the poll? I'm not sure. I just ended up changing the last name to Owens so it reads better for the sample. Thanks again!
hi Erin, thanks for your comments on my joy all around design! Never be afraid to say what's on your mind since you're a consumer too! I'll give it some thought. I was trying to stay crisp and clean for the letterpress to be as strong as it can be. thanks again and good luck!
Hi Erin! Thanks so much for your thoughtful suggestion on my "Merry Crown" design.
Thanks for the feedback on my I Love Pizza fabric! If you have a moment, I have a poll up. Your suggestions were greatly needed! http://www.minted.com/design-rating/389930
Hi Erin, Thank you for the design help. I truly appreciate your time and thoughtful insights.
Hi, Erin! Thank you for your kind words. I'm so excited to see another western PA Mintie! I just moved back to PA a couple of years ago but am originally from Vandergrift, so I know right where you are. A Pittsburgh meet-up would be awesome!
Thanks for the suggestion, Erin! I made some updates and would love to hear your thoughts: http://www.minted.com/design-rating/368156
Erin, for the text size, maybe just a tiny bit. I think it is fine as is. :)
Hi Erin! Thank you so much for your feedback on my "And the Soul Felt Its Worth" card. It is super helpful! I love, love, love your designs!
Hi Erin! Yes, I'm from good ole Pittsburgh. Thanks for reaching out. Your designs are gorgeous!
Thank you for your comment on my "All That Glitters" design! I wasn't quite aware of that, it's a huge help!
Thanks for the like Erin! Man, your photography is gorgeous!! You create lovely moods :)
Thanks for the compliment but 'Well Read' and 'Set In Stone' speak for themselves . . . great photography skill and composition. You work is always so fresh and different. And don't ever hesitate to ask for advice or critique and always feel free to check in on my work and do the same! :)
Hi Erin, I like your bunny invite the way it is actually! The classic serif font you used for the title goes well with the story book style of your illustration. My 2 cents is to maybe reduce the size of the small text to add contrast, and maybe use Mrs. Eaves? But it looks really nice already!
Awww - thank you for your super nice comment, Erin!!! :)
Aw thanks! Your comment was so nice. I really love you work... both stationery and art.
Sorry, Erin. Yes, I meant the space between the lines of copy. It will let your copy feel less crowded. Best of luck to you!
Erin, thanks so much for the nice comment about the Stacked Cups print! Your photography and website are beautiful. What a project you've taken on with your home re-decoration, awesome!
Thanks I really appreciate the critique and I am working on it right know let me know after the corrections Thanks
