Hi Tanya! So bummed I wasn't able to chat with you at NSS....I feel like it was such a blur and missed out on meeting so many fabulous designers. I am in SoCal now....so we will have to schedule a meetup soon!! Absolutely wonderful holiday designs (like always!)

Congrats on your special prize in the business Holiday challenge! I love that design, you know how I like retro! It was good seeing you at the meet up the other night, I only wish we could have talked more. We were on opposite sides of the seating area. :( Hopefully we can all get together again sometime soon! Take care!

hey Tanya, thanks for you sweet note on my creature comfort design! I wish you had time to bang out your design! Mine was actually a concept I designed for my own holiday card a few years back - retooled for this challenge. Check out the old one in my Diecut, Score, and Fold section of my site. It's pretty different!

Hi Tanya :) thanks for your suggestion on my "enjoy" design. I have tweaked the spacing a bit and hope that the hole is closed up a bit more. I think it does look better. take a peek and let me know what you think or if it needs more attention. many thanks again. your help is very appreciated ^_^

hola tanya... roberta here :P it is true that minted's community is largely women and having a profile picture of my son can make my persona a bit ambiguous as well. so no worries at all on the unintentionally implied gender hiccup :) take care and love your work!

Thank you so much, Tanya!! So you are the one who designed the oh what fun with the bell... I've always admired that design : ) I know it's tough to find time and creativity to design when you have little ones, so I am doubly impressed by your work! Welcome back and God bless! : )
