About Iron Range Artery

I'm Holly, a designer/artist from Omaha, Nebraska. Iron Range Artery is named after one of the best places in the world and my former homeland, Minnesota. I like every form of creating things — cooking, sewing, making jewelry, home improvement projects, painting, drawing, and designing on my beloved MacBook. I also enjoy being a wife and mother of two little ones.

Hi Holly, thanks so much for the like on my Three Kings design. I've just shifted it over to a foil version and have a poll running on color options. Would love to hear your thoughts if you have the time. Thank you :) http://www.minted.com/design-rating/620928

Crazy small world! I'm new to Minted. Happy to accept any advice from a pro if you have it! I'd love to do more of this and am hoping it's worth the time investment at the moment. I'm LOVING this type of work and would like to do more of it. Have you been successful at making any income this way? Comparable to the time invested? Find me on FB if you'd like.

Hi Holly, Thanks for the suggestion of my Jingle Those bells design. I had actually tried what you suggest with tucking "those" in at the end between the two words, but I couldn't get it to work / balance, so reverted to the left side.

Hi Holly! I grew up in Omaha and have lived in Minnesota for the past 20 years. I still visit Omaha about 4 times a year to see family. It's a small world. Your artwork is amazing, especially your bluebells series. Good luck in the challenge!

Thanks so much for your feedback on my 'Adore' save the date entry, Holly! Something had REALLY been bugging me about that design and I think you got it just right. I revised the border frame to a smooth vector and now have a poll running for foil/no foil options…would love to get your opinion if you have a second: http://www.minted.com/design-rating/230905 Thank you!! :)
