Haha - well, Smudge Design (Renee) shared it with the whole community this morning, so you've got her to thank! :)
Laura! I think when your font makes it on the cover of a Barbara Streisand album (and yes, I still say album) you've officially made it! Congrats on "Quickpen" and it's celeb status :) https://itunes.apple.com/us/album/partners/id904333385
wow congrats on the Babs cover! So awesome! And I just got quickpen the other evening -- and absolutely LOVE it! Great work!
Renee Pulve shared the link with everyone in the Minted Facebook group to brag on you - that's how I knew about it! We're all so proud of you!!! :)

Aww, thanks, Laura - That's a day-making comment! :) While I'm here, I have to say I LOVE your Boutique save-the-date.
I'm glad you "like" how I used your font, Laura! It's such a lovely font. Wish it was on the font list, too. :)
Hi, Thank you for the tip and for loving my work. I'm very new to this place so I'm just trying to figure this out. Best of Luck!
It's a rough life, Laura, but somebody's gotta do it! Not everybody can survive here. All that beauty + sunshine . . . sometimes it's just too much to handle!!! ;) Seriously, though, I love living here! Can't complain!! Hey, If you're ever in Hawaii again, pleeeeease let me know, okay?! It would be so cool to get together and hang out!! Well, thanks for thinking of me while you were here - that's so sweet! Hope you had an awesome time!! :)
Visiting a sloth sanctuary and holding a baby sloth would seriously be the best ever. I hope you can make it happen! And thanks for your congrats as well :)
Well you deserve an even bigger congrats! That's so exciting and I'm very happy for your win! :)
Your Boutique Save the Date is beautiful, btw! Congrats on that Special Award, too!

Hi Laura! Thanks you so much for the comment for my "prepare to celebrate" wedding invitation challenge. God bless you always!
Hi Laura! Thank you for your sweet note on my peony painting. I got a chance to look at your work here and on your website....wow! absolutely brilliant! What gorgeous line work you have running through your hand lettering and illustration!
Hi Laura, Thanks so much for your lovely comment on my Love All Around invite!!
Oh, and congrats on that great special award. Very nice work.
HI Laura, Just wanted to say I love your new pic and can't wait to see how many wins you'll be getting soon.
they do look a lot of like! my dog (lolita) is a bit of a super mut, best guess is that she's part pitt, beagle a little terrier and maybe a dash of basenji
Hi Laura! Thanks so much for the note! I admire your designs...very inspiring and beautiful work! Best of luck in the challenge!! -Julia :)
lmao - love 'O.G.' I'm going to use that all the time ;). LOVE your new profile pic too - so great!!
Thank You for the lovely comment about my profile pic you made my day!! : )
Thank you for the love you gave to my "Ballard" invite entry, it's awesome to heard good feedback when you are a newb her. And I love your work btw!
Laura, that was the best comment you left me, thank you, thank you! And I didn't not realize that Trial by Cupcakes is you - wow! What an honor of a compliment coming from such an accomplished designer/calligrapher as you : )
Oh shoot! :-( Should I remove mine? I feel so bad about the same concept. I suppose I could rename it...? Please be honest with me!
hahaha, that's hilarious Laura! Maybe I should have said something in the forum? Hopefully I can grow into this new name! What's an O.G.? 'Old Girl'? Hahaha.
Awe, thanks so much Laura. I have been lucky and it's a great place to be. So happy I found minted and all you lovely minties :) Your work is so great. You just never know with minted from one challenge to the next do you.
Thank you Laura for the catch on the time missing on my wedding invite - i'm becomming a serial-time-dropper ;) it's a bad habit, but i guess it's appropriate since i was late to my own wedding :D lol
thanks again for the catch, and i love your work - your woodland clover wedding invite is so perfect!
Thanks for emailing me but no worries! I see some similarities, but your fonts are different and the layout is slightly different. Don't worry about it!!!
Hey Laura! Just wanted to let you know that I do little 'font friday' posts on my blog featuring a favorite font... I am featuring Katie Rose tomorrow! I love it - You are so talented!
thanks, Laura! it's not a very common name, so that's fun that you love it :) you know, i'm struggling a bit with my You Made My Day card and would love if you would have a second to pop over and make a suggestion.
Hey Laura, Thanks so much for yuor comment on my folksy floral design. Wondering if you prefer the new color palette to the original or ??? So excited to purchase your font (tonight!)! It is exactly the type of font I am always in search of! Monica
Hi Laura, Just wanted to wish you the best with Katie Rose--it's lovely--and I see it's made the "hot new font" list!
Congratulations on the launch of your font - very nice!
i love all your work! so beautiful
Thanks so much, Laura!
My five kiddos are mostly grown now (the youngest turns 14 later this month), so I haven't been chasing anyone around the house for a while now :). But then I guess teenagers come with their own set of tricks!
I love the design that was just awarded editor's pick. Congrats and beautiful work.
Thank you for your sweet compliment on "Fishing for Stars" Laura. I love the delicate nature of your designs!
Thanks for your feedback. I realized after I submitted I would need to change the word "Liam" to something else, and I think "Love" will work nicely!
Thanks, Laura. Melanie Severin had pointed out to me that it was on the leaderboard for high scoring designs a few days ago. I've been waiting on pins and needles ever since!
Thanks so much for your comment on my Warmth & Bliss! Really made my day. :)
Laura, thanks so much for your commenting on my designs. I would love to have my own line some day.
thanks for your very kind comment - totally made my day! best wishes for all your beautiful wedding designs :)
Thank you so much for your wonderful comment, Laura! I just checked out your site and WOW! You're an amazing artist!!! I'm sure you'll be racking up the awards here on Minted very soon! Can't wait to see more of your work! :)
Brandy, welcome to B-more! I hope you love your new home- it's a city full of creative people!
Laura, I hope our paths cross at the next Mintie meet-up! I've just recently moved to Baltimore from Seattle. -Brandy
I so agree with Sydney! Your lettering work is phenomenal. You are an excellent illustrator!!
