Hi Jennifer-I was just looking at some of your awesome work and noticed that you are a fellow Penn Stater! Are you contributing to Lanny's Leaving Project? I graduated about 100 years ago and had Lanny as my professor exclusively when I was at Penn State. Not sure how active he has been in the department in recent years. Congrats on all your beautiful work-very impressive! Monica :)
Thank you so much for the positive feedback, Jen! And huge congrats on your holiday win, you talented lady!!
Thank you so much for the nice comment Jen, it means so much! I'm trying to experiment and push myself out of the comfort zone a little... which is scary territory for me ;)
Your journals are SOO gorgeous!!
Thanks Jen for the nice words on my design. Really appreciate your feedback!
Love your new profile picture, Jen! :)
Oh Jen, you knew without knowing - that's all i needed. Must be a 3/6 thing, thank you. x
Thank you so much for the nice compliment! It means a lo coming from you, I am a huge fan of your work. Everything you create is so refined, balanced and beautiful! I would love it if you ever have the time to look over my current submissions and give me some pointers.
Thanks, Jen - you're so sweet. :)
Woah--- I could pinch myself...! thanks for "liking" bon nuit, any suggestion from your expert-ness is always welcome. Do you think the black and white works? Or alternate color way?
oh thanks so much Jen. just what i needed x
Thanks for your lovely comment this morning, Jen! It's especially awesome coming from you. I have sooo much respect and admiration for you as a designer. I know you'll take home some big prizes in this holiday challenge! :)
You are going to have 14 wins.
Jen! thank you so much for your kind comment on my holiday designs--it means the world to me coming from you! Your designs always sweep a challenge, and I have no doubt you'll have some very high-scores among your beautiful pieces
Jen, thank you so much for the feedback in this challenge, it means so so much to me from you!!
Hi Jen! You gave feedback on one of my designs and I'd love to see what you think now that I've made some changes. Now that I changed it to all red, it feels a little incomplete to me. What do you think? Thanks in advance for your thoughts... http://www.minted.com/design-rating/174641 the design is called "Warm Tradition."
Thanks for your feedback on Best Gift Ever. I admire your work (I can't illustrate or hand letter to save my life!) and value your comments. When you have a moment, mind looking at it again? Took your advice and some other advice for key designers. Bought Asterism in the process (with Frosted), yeah!, but funny as it downloads from her site as Amethyst. Thanks!!
Thanks for your help and your kind comment on Merry Greetings. both are very nice to receive in such a stressful challenge!
Thank you so much for taking the time to give me some advice! It was much needed, and I appreciate your expert opinion. I know you've got a lot on your plate, so it means a lot to me! Thanks again!
Hey Jen! If you have a few free minutes, I'd love to get your feedback on my "Greetings of Glory" design. I've worked and worked with it, and I really want it to work, but something seems to be off or missing. I can't put my finger on it. You have a fabulous eye, so I know you'll be able to help. Thanks! http://www.minted.com/design-rating/170247
Hi Jen, thank you for your very kind comment. Hey, I nudged you here and there, but you took the design to the next level. Congrats on your win! So well deserved! And thank you for the congrats. I was totally shocked, to tell you the truth. I couldn't do it without the help and support of my peeps!
I think you just made my day Jen! Thanks so much for your super nice comments! All of your entries are wonderful, as always!
wow Jen, i love your latest commissioned work. simply stunning.
You are so sweet - thank you! :)
Jen - If I haven't told you lately... I think your work is phenomenal. =)
Jen, thanks for letting me know about the Instagram post of the scavenger hunt design. I didn't know so I will have to check that out! And thank you for your lovely comment as well ;)
Thanks for helping me out with the storybook design, Jen! Really appreciate everyone's suggestions! I tried the really bright colors you suggested, but somehow I couldn't make them happen. I've been noodling this all afternoon! I think I like the white, too. Thanks again.
Sure! Much more astute at helping others than my own designs! Feel free to pop on over and give them a once-over. I could use your eyes! :-)
thanks so much for the kind words, Jen! I have a tendency to make an illustration and then be like "whoops, gotta add type to this now." I've really been working to combine the two more seamlessly - and your work is truly an inspiration! I adore the way you pair your type skills with your charming illustrative work. Thanks again!
Thank you for your prompt reply on "Green Thumbs" entry. It really means a lot! :)
Thanks so much for your sweet comment on my Pow Wow design! And I'm sure any tee pee themed design you came up with would be fantastic ;)
Hi Jennifer,I did make some changes to the Green Thumbs design,please let me know what you think of it :) Thanks in advance.
Hi Jen, Don't forget to change the 3 to 2. Darling design.
Hi Jen, It was wonderful meeting you today! Happily, our power has been restored - thanks! And thank you so much for your kind words about my submissions. I feel like I still have so much to learn, and the fact that such talented designers like you are willing to share your time and encouragement means the world. Hope you had a good trip back to Harrisburg, and hope to see you again!
Congrats on the huge winning week Jen!!! Your designs are so consistently top notch, and I really appreciate how you share such wise design advice with us all during challenges. Hope you did something fun to celebrate before you're chained to your computer for days getting all those files ready :-)
Wow wow wow- huge congrats!! Two first places in one week? You're ridiculous ;) I don't envy your file prep workload! (Okay...maybe a little bit...) Love everything you do, keep up the great work!
Huge huge congrats on ALL of your wins recently!!! Fantastic work! I always can not wait to see what you will come up with next :)
Congrats on all of your wins!! Beautiful work!!
Congrats on your Wins Jen ... especially on your 1st Place!
congratulations on the win amazing work.
Your comments always make my day, Jen! :)
aw thank you so so much Jen; your comments mean SO MUCH to me - it doesn't even matter if it gets a pick, I'm so thrilled =)
I don't "think" you really needed my help...I left out the "think" (seems fitting for today) ;)
Thanks, Jen - your comment made my day! I don't you really need my help on that design, though - it's awesome in any color, on any background! Fingers crossed for an announcement (or two)! :)
I would totally submit 4 colorways for that one, Jen - one boy kraft, one girl kraft, one boy white and one girl white. Awesome design!
Thanks for the comment on my art print, Jen. Totally made my day!!
Thanks so much for your sweet comment on my "Love" design! I think I've been looking at it for too long and now I'm unsure about the heart element, if you could take a look at it again when you have a moment and let me know what you think in the poll I would really appreciate it :) Thanks Jen!
hi jen, thanks for the kind comments on my wrapped in linen design! appreciate it!
This is maybe random, but I just saw your red gift wrap on the homepage, and I just wanted to say that I just love that design! Every time I see it I think that!
142 awards don't lie!! ;)
Thanks for your sweet comment and suggestion on my Rustic Charm design, Jen. Also, I just wanted to tell you that your designs in the wedding challenges have been exquisite!!
lol! thank you Jen - I've always wanted to go to a cele-bart-ion ;) (too much simpsons ;)
Chalkboard is obviously all the rage in the latest challenges, so I think you have a surefire winner here. Not that you don't put out surefire winners every time, but this one I can see being really, REALLY popular. It converted me, a non-chalkboarder, LOL.
thanks for your lovely comment on my design - the best start to a dreary tuesday! best wishes for all your beautiful designs as well, loving the rustic blues.x
Thank you for your sweet comment, Jen! Wishing you many holiday sales as well! :)
You're welcome, thanks for being so receptive to my feedback! :)
oh Jen, you have no idea how much that comment means to me - I stayed up until 1am working on it, and was so excited to post it, but it hasn't gotten any likes - so it means a lot :)
ps - love love love all your holiday designs - some I hadn't even seen yet until now - wow!
You made my night, Jennifer!!! Thank you!!! While I'm here, you have an awesome holiday collection - best of luck this season!!! :)
Jennifer! thank you so much for making my day! and I'm so glad you see my vision, because when I made it I couldn't tell if it was good or a mess ;)
Thank you so much for the great feedback Jen, I really struggle with wedding (or anything with lots of type! yikes). I really appreciate all the help :)
Jen, thank you so much for your kind words on fable! I'm so happy to be back to submitting and feeding my Minted addiction. Your baby shower entries are stunning! I don't know how you do it but with each challenge, you raise the bar :)
Hi Jen, thanks for your kind note on tickled pink. I do like your color combo though! great minds, yada, yada. I had emmascript in mine, too, and changed it to wendy for a more retro look. I know I don't need to wish you good luck...! :-)
congratulations Jennifer your designs are always nice and pretty
Jennifer, thanks for the congrats and congratulations to you too! Your work is always so beautiful!!!
Thanks Jen, I 100% love the color versions. I've updated my poll. Take a quick look if you get a minute.
Jen thanks for the really nice comment! I am still so new and novice at this and I am very honored that you would take the time. I aspire someday to be able to knock it out of the park like you do on each and every challenge. :) You are a tremendous inspiration not only in your design work but in your ethics. Thanks again. Chris
Thank you so much, Jen!! Congrats to you!!
Thank you so much, Jen! You made my day. Oh, and you can quit submitting now, too. ;)
Oh my gosh, I am in complete disbelief! Thank you so much, Jen! Thank you for always having encouraging words!! I absolutely adored your holiday designs—-congrats on your Top 40 finishes!
Thank you, Jen! I'm still in shock :) I've never even placed in the top 40 for holiday. And congrats on all of your wins as well!
Thanks for the sweet comment on my lettering Jen! That means a lot coming from a pro like you :)
Thanks a million Jen for your lovely comment on my Intricate Paper Cut design. Always an honor to get a comment from you, makes me feel I'm heading in the right direction :) x
and that, lovely Jen, is why they pay you the big bucks! ::))) http://www.minted.com/design-rating/105587
Jen, Thank you. I really also wanted to use the one with white flowers - you pushed me to just stick with my original choise. Do you mind taking a look at the 5 flowers? would really appreciate, thanks Jen. http://www.minted.com/design-rating/105584
Thanks so much, Jen!
Jen thank you so much for your comments and for catching the guide words. Love all your submissions, you're amazing :)

Thank you so much Jennifer! I am so inspired by and in awe of your work! You made my day;)
Thank you so much for the encouraging comment on Neon Pop! I was doubting myself, so I appreciate the feedback!

You are an inspiration. I think we all aspire to be as good as you. :)
Hi Jennifer, thank you for your kind words about my comment, I could not resist using the periods in my remark, yours were so much fun I wanted to use them too. Also, thanks for taking the time to comment on one of my card designs. I love your work and look forward to seeing all your designs. Warm wishes, Robin :D
Thank you Jen - I agreed with you even before the poll - you know how it goes :)
What an amazing compliment!! WOW! - THANK YOU so much!!! =)
THANK YOU, Jen!!! I'm soo happy.. =D
it's impossible to give you low scores. rephrase: anything below 5.
Thank you Jen for your kind comment - whew, this challenge had me second guessing my entries. You killed it yet again!! so well done :)
Thank you so much for the input and nice feedback Jen - feel like I"m drowning a bit ;)
I'm glad you appreciated my comments... I sometimes feel bad about coming up with ideas for already successful designs, but I hope people would be willing to push me that way too. Thanks for your well wishes. I'm leaving out of town this weekend for a week and I'm kind of glad I won't be sucked in to the last-minute holiday submission madness. Lots of amazing designs already!
Thanks for the nice words, Jen! Glad I can cheer someone up :) I'll blame my wacky comments this week on being sleep-deprived and delirious! haha
Sorry for my crude choice of words Jen! Hope I didn't offend you! Your designs are just so nice and clean and perfect... they make me lose all tact and just say what I feel. :)
JEN. You just made my night! Thank you, thank you.
No need to apologize, Jen! I got a lot of great feedback and advice as a result of posting the new version. I actually kind of prefer the new version but will play around with it this weekend and either way, hopefully come up with an improved design :). Thanks so much again!
Hey Jen, Thanks so much for the great feedback on my Full of Love design. I started a poll with 2 versions... would love for your input if you get a minute. Thank you :) http://www.minted.com/design-rating/93199
