Hi Kimberly, So nice to read your comments about my design and thought it too funny that 5 minutes before I posted it the background color was pink. Great minds and all of that...so excited for your business and recent pics featured on blog. It still means a lot to me that you were the first to comment on my very first design and makes we wonder if all minties can recall who first encouraged them.

Hi Kimberly! I wanted to pop in and say that not only are your designs awesome, but I just discovered your website/blog and am absolutely floored by how down to earth and inspirational you are! A while ago I started a post in the Forum regarding blogs, and I wanted to let you know that although you didn't add your website yourself, I just added it so other Minties could benefit all of your great advice! http://www.minted.com/forum/comments.php?DiscussionID=477&page=1#Comment_6699
