Congrats on CMYK! That is wonderful!
Thankyou so so much for your help,I seriously just can't thank enough.Also I'm one of those people who wouldn't want to trouble others when help is needed but I really appreciate it. I'm just trying to get back into the word of design after motherhood happened (although kids always need us) but technically I lack so much & things have really changed since I graduated in 2004.So basically I'm learning from scratch all over again. Nevertheless thanks again Lori,your'e a true gem! :)
Thank you so much for your sweet note! I love your work, your illustration style is out of this world! It's so inspiring to just look at your work;) Thanks again and have a great day!
Hi Lori Thank you very much for your suggestion on my mothers day invitation i will give it a try. Just wanted to add that I love all of your work you are such an inspiration for me:)
Thanks so much Lori for your comments on my watercolor submission. I am constantly in awe of your work and its evolution. Your generosity of support means so much to me. It's that generosity that makes you a true design rock star!
Thanks Lori for the sweet encouragement. I need how to figure how to make my designs more liked by consumers and the Minted team. I seem to get a lot of likes from great people like you, but it doesn't translate to wins. :(
Lori, thank you so much for your generous comment on my win. I am sure I will wake up and this was a dream!
You are too funny!!!! Thanks Lori!
Oh my goodness, Lori! Your encouragement has me beaming :) Being an artist/designer type is scary sometimes, ya know? Letting go and being okay with mistakes and learning to work with them (kinda like life!) Hearing from incredibly kind and oh so talented folks (you!) that something I made connects is just so so rewarding and courage making...thank you!
Thanks for your lovely comment, Lori! You are just the best. It's definitely rockstar designers, like you, who keep me inspired and motivated to keep going!

Girl, you are not terrible at anything art/design related :) And thank you. love yours too.
Oh no! I hate when stuff like that happens! You could export your repeat to PS and then place it back into AI? Whatever happens, I still love it.
Thanks so much Lori! Your work is beautiful.
Thanks so much for the lovely comment Lori. It means a lot coming from such an awesome illustrator :)

Thankss Lori! I am happy too.. since I have more time and energy (and inspiration hahah) I used some of ur tutorial too.. They were helpful.. I didnt know about recolor artwork.. and brush as stroke that is just perfect!! Thankss
p.s. I'd love to get my hands on your vibrant stationery entry! just love it!
Wellll, maybe my shooting stars stationery will be available for purchase in the near future. ;) I can't wait until I can get my son's input on the designs! Being submerged in the colorful life of kids has sparked a lot ideas and it's so fun!
Thank you, thank you for the sweet note and lovely compliment!! This time of year can be crazy with the kiddos at home. I love all of your adorable kid illustrations, they are just perfect! I didn't believe people much when they said my son would be inspiration for work, but it's definitely proving to be true. :) And now that I'm submitting regularly again I can't imagine not submitting! Thanks again, you're just too sweet.
You're just so lovely... and so talented :)
Oh and thank you for your brilliant tutorials...I watched and learned new things so appreciate that immensely xx
I'm still gobsmacked that your completely clever card didn't do better...but like I said... am sure will prove a hit come christmas time. thanks for taking the time out to write a note to me... meant a lot : )
We'll see! I like yours so much and mine's not done yet so I may just divert efforts from that to a few others for now. :)
Thank you Lori for your words, I love all of your work and your amazing ideas!
Aw thanks Lori! And definitely give it a chance, it's lovely!! Also, just wanted to mention that I loved your brilliant tutorials, so incredibly nice of you to share :)
Thanks Lori!! Likewise! You're such a huge inspiration to me! I just finished watching your texture tutorials. Sooo good! Thanks for sharing that with the community. I thoroughly enjoyed watching you work! :)
thanks, Lori! I have been anxiously awaiting something not holiday related!;) loved your tutorials. My last couple file preps that involved textures were a beating to prep. such memory hogs.. so i swore off texture...easier said than done! I will just use them more sparingly. LOL
Lori thanks for the nice words. I loved your tutorial! It was great and also so nice to "hear" you. :)
Helloha Lor, thx for making me feel so special ;). I think you are a rock star in all challenges, and big big congrats to your wins to!!!! Cheers from far, far away.
Thank you Lori, both great comments, I will give them a try.
thanks a lot Lori for you critique and play with it work in progress
Thanks Lori! You know several of us were talking about you at the LA meetup and how you seem to have an endless supply of awesome ideas! And that YOU make it look so easy! lol. :)
Thanks for the sweet comment Lori, you're such an amazing illustrator/designer. I really do hope to get to meet you and the other Minties one day.
Thanks for your thoughts and taking the time to make them!
Hi Lori. Thank you very much! I am a huge fan of your work! I would love if you ever have any spare time to give me some advice on some of my work :)
So sweet of you ,Lori! Hope you win big time in all cathegories. I guess we all have to wait till big reaval ;) I was kind of sad to miss you in Nyc, I would love to shake yor hand and tell you how good your designs are in person ...
Lori, Thank you for continuing to raise the design bar. I am a big fan of your work. x Brandy
Aww, thanks Lori! We do need to meet-up sometime, we're really not that far apart. Maybe we can do an unofficial kind of thing and get a few others involved? Maybe some of the SC kids ...
virtual hug. had such an awful day. thank you for making it a whole lot better as Im off to bed :) x
aaaw, really!? thank yoU!
Thanks Lori! Nope, didn't pull it - it should still be there. Just didn't get a chance to keep working on it.
Lori, thanks for you recommendation on adding a braid element to my Christmas Cookie card. I very much wanted to do it, but ran out of time to tweak on this challenge. I really appreciate you taking the time to give me comments!!
Thanks Lori. I have been in abstentia too as I just got through with my son's wedding. Now I am ready to go full steam ahead. Hope all is ok with you and that it is just real work that is keeping you busy.
Hi Lori! We're expecting on July 1st, could be any day! We are waiting to find out the gender, so it will be a big surprise! :)
Thanks for your kind comments, Lori! I always love seeing what you'll come up with, and you didn't disappoint this year! Stunning work as always :) Cheers!
thanks a lot looking forward to the non photo one good luck in all the challenges always
Thanks Lori! I was literally just making that font combo :) I'll work on photos. Those aren't my fave - thank you for your time!!
Thank you for your quick comment on my Always design! I'm totally fried from this challenge and can't think straight. Can I get your input on colors? Are they working? Do they need to be more holiday? Or just more bold? I can totally swap photos...not sure I'm in love with those anyhow. I love your eye for things, so I value your opinion!
Lori, your holiday submissions this year are seriously fantastic! And they are so varied from elegant and modern, to warm and hand drawn. I know you will be super pleased with your holiday sales this year :)
I just saw that order and got excited–it always makes me happy when the more whimsical/illustrative ones sell. And now that I know it's for you I'm so happy!!!! We can trade, I'll make a boy one and you make me, well, anything you want :)
Thanks for the sweet comment Lori ... it means alot coming from such a great designer like you. Congrats on all your wins and picks in the Oh Happy Day Challenge!

Wow! Congrats on your Wins & Picks in the Business Card Challenge! You are seriously one awesome designer!
Hi Lori! Thank you so much for all the info! I guess it might be a little while before voting kicks off. I think I just missed the online office hours in the forum. =/ It is good to know they have that resource for next time though. :) Thanks so much for liking a few of my designs too! I'm totally flattered. Your designs are AMAZING. Every new one I see pop up in the contest I keep hitting "like." XD Thanks so much again for your help!
Hi Lori, I had a question since I am new to Minted. How soon after a contest closes does voting begin? I'm anxious for voting to start on the wrapping paper contest. :) Thanks!! - Mary
Lori, you are so welcome, it's my favorite design in this challenge! Really well done!
Congrats on making the CMYK Program!

Congrats Lori!!!! Love your winning designs!
Thank you so much for your incredibly sweet compliment Lori. It honestly means so much coming from you - I consider your designs to be the epitome of cute!!
Thank you so so much for making my spirits higher. I'm just an Adobe Illustrator rookie who's getting back to design (design is my first love) after 8 long years. I truly admire your work & I feel elated to hear good things about my work from you. Thanks once again!
Hi Lori, I often look at your work with such wonder and feel that you are one of the leaders who pushes the rest of us to do better. So you can imagine how much your comment today meant to me. Thanks a bunch Lori.
I'm so looking forward to see something from you in the birthday challenge. The suspense is killing me! ;) Please tell me you're submitting something soon.
I just had to stop by and thank you for your sweet compliments! That means a ton coming from you - your work is always so inspiring!
I made two other versions cause I wasn't loving the type at the bottom. Let me know what you think when you have a sec.
Hi Lori, I am new to Minted and can't help but notice your work. Your illustrations have so much style and detail! As a design rookie-- still teaching myself AI-- I am amazed by you, as my biggest challenge is finding the technical ability to execute the designs that look so great in my head! Your work is truly inspirational. Thank you!
do you think it's silly?
you're so sweet Lori. . . your comments on my designs (grace + blush) have made me smile! x
You just made my Monday!!! :) It means so so much coming from someone whose work I admire so much!
