I am a full-time wife and mother of 5 who feels lost without a book to read and a creative project to work on. I love color and appreciate clean design with plenty of white space.

wow, thank you Kim! really appreciate your lovely comment.
HI Kim! Thank you for leaving feedback on my design. Appreciate it :)
thanks a lot for the poll I am going to do a short one for color next thanks as always
Aw Kim! not at all! phonetically it would read: Frozney. It is a very unsual name, even here, so dont worry im so use to it :)
thanks so much Kim! I almost cried at your quick response - I am really so unsure about this design and I am so grateful for you comment xo
Thanks so much Kim for the comment. I appreciated it very much. :)
Thanks Kimberly for your comments on my Sentiment Stack design. I had originally done the text like that purposefully, but I think it was just too distracting. Great suggestion!
Thanks so much for the feedback, I was thinking it was maybe too dark so I appreciate you confirming that for me!
Thanks Kimberly! I totally meant to tweak the trees and forgot! Thank you!!!
Thanks a lot Kim I am working on that.
Thanks for the comment, Kimberly! I saw the note about no foil, but I wasn't even thinking about glitter. I'll revise the design asap... Thanks again! :)
Oh thanks Kim. I am just doubting everything lately and you had "liked" my wrap called Dash just as I deleted it. I did resubmit it to the challenge. Thanks for responding. Sometimes things get crazy.
Help! I have creative block and just deleted Dash. Should I keep it?
I love this challenge - I'm such a kid at heart :) You are kickin butt! - I'm feelin a special award for your football design - it's fantastic! and that giraffe is just perfect!
Kimberly - thank you so much for the feedback on "Here Ye Here Ye" (now "Hear Ye Hear Ye"). I laughed out loud to myself at how silly that was of me - sometimes I just get so caught up in the design and illustration that I forget to notice what I'm actually writing! Thanks for bringing it to my attention. :)
Thanks Kimberly. Smaller is better. Maybe smaller yet? I'm not going to look at it again until tomorrow because it could probably still use some tweaking. If you notice anything else don't hesitate to tell me. Thanks again.
Thanks, Kimberly! I hope you can use your work for something fabulous!
Thank you for your feedback. I agree that some of my photos are skewed. I think that in the midst of tweaking designs I overlooked resizing properly. Thanks again.
Thank you SO much for your feedback! I had not realized that and really appreciate your comment.
Hi Kim, I was just working on that and so appreciate your comment. I did the pic straight on and less close. Can't decide if I should tilt the photo as before or too much? Thanks again.
Thank you so much for your feedback on my design - embarrassing to miss such a simple requirement! thanks again x
thanks so much for the lovely comment Kim! i truly appreciate it x
Thank you! I am so clueless with wedding verbiage - I tried to research a little but it seems everyone does something different! Thank you so much for all the great feedback :)
lol - thank you for the great feedback - totally missed that! always get too caught up in the illustration. :)
Thank you so much for your critique on my "grace" submission. I really appreciate it Kimberly! I made some type changes per your recommendation - hope it looks stronger. . . thank you again!
Thank you for your comment!!
I'm happy my comments were helpful, Kim! :)
Definitely do a poll on your design, because a lot of people liked your first version, and my advice may not be best for your design! I was thinking going even smaller on the name, so the "hello from" is centered in it...but, maybe, the bigger name is what all those people liked about it in the first place? I don't want to lead you astray. Best of luck!!! :)
Thanks for your feedback Kim, I appreciate it.
LOL! your comment cracked me up! - I think I have a minted addiction problem. is there a 12-step program for that? :D
Thank you for the feedback it will help me so much. I enjoyed looking through your designs. I think making more space for writing would be much better. Thanks again!
thank you Kim, you too! :-)
Hi Kim! thanks for the feedback! I'm torn... I liked the corners but I like it w/o too... do you think it looks better w/o?
Hi Kim! Thanks so much for your help and kind words! It looks like I'm going to have to choose a different song! Your designs are fantastic! I especially love Many Wishes. Thanks again!!
Thank you very much Kim!
Thanks so much Kim. You have such a great eye and I am so glad for the extra help.
Thanks Kim! I couldn't have done it without some guidance :). Congrats on 3rd place! You totally rocked this challenge!
Congrats on all your wins! They are so well deserved, so lovely :)
Hi Kim, I loved all of your submits and am so happy that little cow won and the pretty laurel won. And I always appreciate the feedback you give my work. Congrats.
I just wanted to congratulate you on all of your wins. From the Nursery and Baby Laurels were two of my favorites...your work is so beautiful and sweet. I also wanted to thank you for all the likes recently...as a new designer here, it's encouraging.
WOW Kim, you dominated the baby challenge! Great job!
congrats on your wins Kim - so well deserved!!
haha no worries, I attached another photo to the same post using futura instead of archer. let me know what you think! thanks for all the advice!
Thank you so much for the thoughts on my striped crest design Kim! I have another version with a different font in the comments section. If you get a chance take a peek :D
Hi Kimberly, So glad you like my design. I love the balloons too but only added the dots. Always feel compelled to explain. And always happy when I see your work.
You are too sweet! I will play with the file a little more in the next day or so and see how it turns out using the sentence case. For now - I'm heading to bed. lol Thanks again, Kim!
Hi Kim! Thanks so much for the comment and help. I appreciated it very much.
Hi Kimberly, thanks! Ive uploaded an option in my comments, whenever you have a moment.. ;)
Hi Kimberly! thanks so much for another useful input! Greatly appreciated! AARGH I had it side to side and with another font, so thanks, you actually gave me the confidence I needed. Will play now and hopefully you could take a peek later when you have a moment. thanks again.
Hi Kimberly - thanks so much for your input on my simple sea breeze design! Pls if you have a moment in your busy schedule to take a look at the slight color change Ive made. thanks so much I really appreciate it! http://www.minted.com/design-rating/70679
Hi Kimberly. Thank you so much for your suggestion on my " Pier love " design. I did some changes, if you have a chance i'd love to hear your feedback :)
Sure, Kimberly - your comment was right on! :)
I did read through it, I didn't see anything about the photos. So, what types of photos should I use in the samples? I can't use stock or personal, the photos used are from shoots I have done with others. Thanks for all the help!
Hi Kim, I'm a little confused by the comment you left me. If you could clarify what you mean that would be great. All of the photos in my samples are from my personal collection. THANKS!
Kim, thank you so much for your help on my "Wreath and Ribbon" design. It means a lot to me that a designer I admire would take the time to comment. I just read that you are a mother of five- WOW! And I thought I had no time- now I know better. :)
Hi Kim! Thanks so much for the great comment and help. God bless always!
Thank you for your kind words, Kimberly. Your work is beautiful!
Many thanks again Kimberly for your very comprehensive answer to my question... er, yes I think I understand now ;) All a bit complex isn't it!
Hi Kimberly... I do hope you don't mind me asking you this question, but you were so kind to help me before, and I need someone to ask. What actually counts as a vote - people liking your design or people rating your design?
Hi Kimberly, thanks so much for the helpful comment you left for me. As a newbie it's good to know there are nice folks out there willing to help :) What do you advise? Should I just leave the clanger mistake up there and note that I've seen it or change it and loose my comments and likes? What would you do?
Thank you so much, Kim! Congratulations on your Wedding Boughs, that tree is beyond pretty :)
Congrats on your special prize. It is gorgeous!!! Well deserved!!!
Congrats on your special prize win today. You have such a professional presence on minted.
Hi Kimberly, thanks so much for your sweet comment about my Gentle Gingko design! Your work is beautiful. Good luck in this challenge!
Thanks for your kind comments as well Kim! Your designs are very lovely and I always like to see what you come up with :)
Hi Kimberly.. Thank you so much for your suggestions on my " flor de amor " submission. I've made some changes and I really like it.. Your suggestion were great..!
A million thank you's to you for visiting my designs and lending a hand. I appreciate it more then I can even begin to express. I've made some changes per your guidance and think it really made a difference. You are the best!!!! If I can return the favor please please let me know.
Thanks for a good catch on some bad kerning, Kim!
... and by "what," I mean "wait." :o)
Thanks for your vote of confidence in my design, Kim! There were lots of great designs so I guess we'll have to what until the end of summer to see which ones were actually selected. I guess I can't be too upset if my design wasn't selected since I can use it for my own shop (if it's not selected for the minibook challenge either). :o)
Thanks for your sweet note, Kim! I wasn't contacted by Minted for my "Peace Pieces" design for the holiday card challenge so based on some information in the forum (that Minted would be making all their design requests by the end of this week), I assumed that it wasn't picked and free to reuse for the current challenge. But I'm glad to hear that you liked the design. Hopefully, it gets picked up for the minibook challenge. :o)
Thank you so much for the nice comment. This is the first time I've posted designs on Minted, so your compliment is really encouraging.
Thanks for the tip, Kim- sadly I didn't catch it until it was too late to fix :( Hopefully lots of other people have been singing it wrong for years as well- ha! You have some great entries this challenge- your 'Trimmed Wreath' is just gorgeous- best of luck :)
Thank you for your lovely comment on "bubbles"!
Hey again! Thank YOU for the great compliments! I hope you can go to a mintie meet up some time, because it was encouraging to talk to the other designers and hear how much they have grown since participating in Minted challenges. Trust me, my first few designs are stinkers!! You have a great style and it is showing that you are hitting your stride : ) Just keep trusting your design instincts!
Congrats on your Diwali win Kim! I absolutely loved your tree design!
Big congrats Kim on your winning design! Your "Tree of Life" is so gorgeous! Looking forward to seeing your holiday entries!!
Congrats to you as well, Kimberly! Loved your card!
Ditto as per Jessica - your Tree of Life is a beautiful design and thanks for the sweet comment.
Hi Kim, thanks so much for your kind comments. I think Tree of Life is a sure winner! All the intricate details are so pretty :)
Thanks Kim! Thanks for all your feedback and suggestions!!
Hi Kim, I loaded a version of my pomegranate design with a picture. Can you please take a look and give your opinion? Thanks for your feedback! :)
Hi Kim, no problem! I think you expressed yourself really well - probably much better than I could! My guess is that people are hesitant to say anything unless they are from one of those cultures. I know what you are saying though, I sometimes wonder what people think of my forum posts too! I'm trying to design a Diwali card and am having the same fears as you! I'm guessing that in most cultures, there will be some who prefer a traditional theme, and others who are open to a more modern interpretation. So for a Lunar New Year card, some may prefer Chinese characters, but others may be fine with the English phrase, particularly if they live in the US. Oh boy, sorry for this long post! I hope this makes sense. All the best to you! Jessica
Thanks for the comment! I'm brand new here, so the feedback means a lot (especially coming from such a lovely designer!)
I think you're going to be happy with the outcome of this challenge. Your designs have really come a long way!!! I'd be really surprised if they aren't chosen. Early congrats!
Mom, you are a great and talented designer, and I love you!
