Thank you again for checking back on my baby announcements & for your feedback. I"ll try more layouts,trust me I lack terribly in technical skills & try to run away from textures & all these treatments.Nonetheless I was very proud of myself when I successfully tackled the foil treatment,so in a way I'm taking baby steps towards my technical deficiencies,haha,but thank you as always! :)

Thanks so much for the nice note, Naomi! I was definitely excited about the idea of pattern/textile design so I think I might have gone a little pattern design crazy. :) Either way I enjoyed it and am looking forward to seeing how Minted does with home decor. I was hoping to see some of your work in the fabric challenge ... hopefully next time? :)

Totally pushed me on this challenge. I've never designed for textiles, but now obsessed. So many great designers out there and sites to check out - Have you seen these girls? http://www.thepatternbase.com I think you might like.

WOW. Thank you so much, Naomi. I love love love your work too!! It's so special that your daughter was involved in your gems. At the moment, that is my five yr old son's favorite thing to do - look for shiny, sparkly rocks! I love your photography and your linear work too. It feels wonderful to receive a comment from an artist who I really respect. I just checked out your website and it's lovely. Thanks again. Nell

Hi Naomi. Yes this contest is quite intimidating! I really like how your photography stands out. I picture it in domino. I also see it in modern nurseries or kids rooms as well as grown ups :)
