Hey, fellow Laura! Absolutely do not remove your design!! It's lovely and I've actually had this same issue before (I accidentally created something similar to and similarly named as another designer). I wouldn't think it was an issue at all if our first names weren't also the same- that might be confusing to voters. I wrote to Minted to ask what they think is best, but I think a simple name change should do it. DO NOT delete something so lovely!

I really appreciate that, Laura. :) If my design had been a little more different than yours, I'd probably have kept it up. There are a bunch of similar designs in each challenge so I think it's always a gray area. PS: I really like all of the pieces you've entered lately!

Hi Laura, thanks for the note. I'm pretty sure mine was the 3rd one up, so I think the protocol is to ask each of you if you'd like me to take mine down. Carol said she's ok with me leaving mine up (and I think yours too), but I'll defer to you about mine since mine came after yours (and since ours look similar). Out of respect I can remove mine if you'd like me to, just say the word and let me know before the deadline tomorrow. :) Thank you, —Sarah

Hi Laura – no need to thank me! I saw that you were a little frustrated iawhile back (in the forum) & I'm hoping that you're having a better experience. Glad to see you're still around. I know you have a win coming soon! My husband and I are both originally from Kansas. He grew up in Lenexa. We still have lots of family in K.C. Actually, one of his cousins has worked on/off at Hallmark for years. Stacey Asbill Eisile... have you guys ever crossed paths?
