About guess what?

Hi! My name is Lori, and I'm the graphic designer behind "guess what?". I've always loved drawing and all things creative, and I've been making cards for friends and family since I was a little girl. Art + design have always been a part of my life, and I feel so blessed to be able to share a small part of that with you. Thanks so much for stopping by! Don't forget to visit :)

Hi Lori, thanks so much for your very sweet note! You are so talented and I always love and look forward to everything you submit. You are an inspiration and your encouraging words were one of the reasons why I stuck around here. I am glad I did and I feel like I improve and find my voice with each challenge. Stay inspired!! Oh, and I hate getting my photo taken too and I'm married to a photographer!

Awwwe, thank you Lori!! It means so much to me that you like my designs cause you're one of my minted idols! Like Geekink, everything you submit is just always amazing and a sure '5'! :-) Your site looks really great and I hope you make some extra $$ with the links. You actually make more commission through the links than with your regular minted commission, isn't that crazy?? Anyways, I'm so happy that I found minted last year and got to know a bunch of sweet and talented people like you! Good luck with all the (hopefully) upcoming announcements, I'm sure you'll be swamped with file requests :-))

Hi Lori! Thanks so much for your comment on "Giving"! And I'm sure if you did a design with a wood grain background it would be fantastic!

Hi Lori! Thank you for your nice comment about my "Three Sheets" design! It means a lot coming from such a talented designer. I just checked out your portfolio and your work is amazing! I especially love the Donut design. Just wanted to thank you and introduce myself. This is my first time entering a contest on here, and I've been having a lot of fun so far :)
