I fell in love ink and paper in college, where I lived around the corner from an art supply store and spent almost every cent I earned buying handmade papers. I learned how to make my own, and become obsessed with print making processes. I am passionate about design and I am thankful to Minted and the community here for providing a supportive and creative place to interact with others who share the same passions.

Thank you very much for feedback. It help soooo much! Take care always.
thanks for your sweet note :)
Congrats lori on all the wins....even my husband is deeply in love with your pirate birthday invite :)
Ooh thank you Lori ! Good luck, you are so talented !
Thank you very much Lori! Congrats to you too. God bless you always.
Thank you for your sweet note, Lori - you're too kind! There were so many fabulous designs, I was lucky to squeak a couple in there. With every challenge, it seems the bar gets raised a little higher - especially by super talented people, like you! Keep up the awesome work!! :)
Aww, thank you Lori! You're too sweet for that :) I was a little surprised to have a design get so much positive feedback and a decent score of 3.58 and not get picked, but it is a contest and Minted has a formula for what they pick. At least it was fun to make and my son liked it so much he says he wants a beach party birthday now too haha :) Congrats on all your wins and picks in the challenge. You really crushed it!!! :)
Thanks Lori for all the encouragement.
Thanks so much, Lori! I knew all of yours were winners - your illustrations are AMAZING.
Congrats on your 2nd Place Win and Editor's Pick Lori! Love all your illustrations!
Congrats on your wins! Chris
Wow, congrats on all your well-deserved wins, Lori! Amazing work!!!

I think about that all the time too for my basement. I love printmaking!!!
Thanks sweet Lori x
thanks for the kind compliments on my snapdragon entry, Lori! I wish I could do more! those are aquatints and they are a long process I haven't done in a few years. I used to do snapdragons in any medium possible. I love that flower!
Hi Lori, thanks for the encouragement, I needed it! Cheers, Robin ;-)
Hi Lori, thank you for your lovely comment. I am a corporate brand designer trying to find my way around the Minted world. I love stationery and greeting cards and have always dreamed of designing this type of work. Your design style is suited to Minted customers and your illustrations are truly lovely. At some point I will figure out my visual style for Minted and get focused. I look forward to seeing more of your work. All the best, Robin :D

Lori girl, where did your map go? did you pull it? it was sooo cute! :-) I just saw your comment on my profile... ;-)
such a pleasure!
Hey Lori - yea It was a second thought - maybe it is not necessary at all? but really up to you! I was just trying to find a way to have less focus on copy because your illustration is so stellar. (the font is quite decorative and i think it takes away from the awesome illustration) :)
Lori I appreciate your input so much. let me know what you think now, pls. http://www.minted.com/design-rating/87422
thanks so much x
Thanks for the encouragement Lori. Means a lot. Chris
Lori, i am so in awe of your designs. You are a true inspiration. Not sure I will ever break into the winner's circle at Minted, but the journey is so much fun and it's designers like you who always respond that make it worth continuing to enter. :) Thank you. Chris
Thanks so much Lori. That would sure be amazing.
His company sent us down in september and we loved the area. We visited center city, Huntersville up to Moorseville. Once we sell our house here we will begin full on looking for home in the area. We may rent a few months when we first arrive but we are excited to get settled again in a home. Glad to know you like the area!
Lori, love your illustrations! Beautiful work! I just saw on your profile that you are from Huntersville. My husbands company is relocating us to the area and we will be arriving in August. I can't wait!

hey Lori! Thanks for the suggestion on my oranges design... loved the idea but tried the full bleed photo on the cover and it just wasn't working... :(. Your designs are looking awesome. Especially loving your HAPPY design.
Thanks for your suggestion on my "I Thee Wed" design! I think lightening the stripes really did help :-) Sometimes you look at these for so long, you lose sight (ha!) of what your eye sees first. Thanks for the fresh perspective!
hi Lori! i don't think i said thanks so sharing your painting method for your gorgeous birds and bees design... thanks! :)

Just wanted to say a big THANK YOU for pushing me to continue with Up and Away. It's been a while since I've been really happy with a design. Also, I'm such a fan of you work that when you made you comment I was a giggly school girl. ;)
Hi Lori! Thanks so much for the super nice message the other day. I'm just dying over your birds & bees design... I don't even know how you do that! Do you do it all in ai with brushes? Amazing! :)

OMGoodness, Lori - THANK YOU for your generous comment! I hope so! ;) Congrats on your TWO wins - a huge accomplishment, and you totally deserved it! Yours designs were awesome. I hope Smitten gets a late pick, too...so cute and fun!
Thanks so much for your comment on Love Squared, Lori - it made my day! I love all your work, and am just now seeing your Morning Paper art designs since I stopped by to leave this message - those are awesome!
hey, lori, oh yeah, I always have something to say! I just think in that one, the type defines the place, but it's interfering with the recognition of the icons and that could be instant. I am not sure you even need it. Good luck!! your submissions are always so fun!
Hello! Thanks for your comments on my 'Oh, Deer' submission. Overwhelmed by what an awesome community this is; thanks for taking the time!
Lori, Thank you for the sweet note! So glad you are not deleting that design! Don't! I love it. All your work is awesome. I actually decided to change my designer name (no more sweet ollie :(... now you are making me wonder if I made a good decision!) so right now I'm just using my actual name as my designer name. :)
Dear Lori, Thank you for your comment! I made the changes, and I like it better now. If you have a min to pop by, and see what you think. Cheers,
If you have the chance t
Hi Lori, whoa, thanks so much for the heartfelt comments. It means a lot to me. I think the gentle nudges and comments are really helpful, especially when you are working solo. Keep them coming! You are doing great BTW, wish I could draw the way you do! good luck!!
Aren't you the sweetest - thanks! :)
You're very welcome! Love that design - best of luck!
I love your soda pop party concept! I'm totally inspired to host an event with this theme!
Thanks, Lori!!! :)
Hi Lori, ha, ha about the sunglasses. I was going for the pensive/bitchy look! Hope things calm down at home and we see your fine talent back here very soon! Have a great summer! Stay inspired!!
Lori, congrats on your party win! Your illustrations are so great! Nice work!!
and thanks for your sweet words about my work, too! :)
Yikes! I hope your hubby is doing much better now. The holiday challenge is going on right now - it's a big one! If you want to catch up on some things, you should check out the private facebook group (just send me a friend request and then I can add you to the group - I am under Kim Dietrich Elam). Can't wait to see more of your work, but take care of hubby and those little ones first...
Hey, Lori - where are you?!!! Hope everything is okay. Missing your designs lately. And, btw, you're not a "wanna-be" anymore - you need to update your profile! :)
Congrats on your win, Lori!
