Thank you for your sweet comment on "Birthday for a King," Naomi! I really appreciate the kind feedback.
Naomi, you are the best! Thank for all your support, especially your comment on my "Leafy" wedding invite. That one has been a real reach for me and probably took me about ten times longer to design than it should have! There are so many seasoned talented artists in the wedding challenge so I am way out designed in this one but am learning so much so decided to participate anyway.. Thanks again! :)
Thank you Naomi for your likes and suggestion. I am really a big fan of your work. And i feel very special when someone like you comment/like on my work :)

Hi Naomi! Thank you very much for the help.
THANK YOU, Naomi! That line what what I needed! I was playing off "let your heart be light," but I think it will work better playing off "may all your Christmases be white."
Naomi - Thank you so much for your feedback on my "Merry Year" design! I have updated the poll based on your comment! :)
Thanks Naomi - I'm going to try out a more sophisticated color (I agree the white is nice with kraft but maybe not for such an occasion) :)

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! :)

Thank you for such a nice comment, Naomi! Fabric is such an exciting development here at minted, it was lots of fun designing patterns. I love your art, your autumn obscured is a favorite of mine!
Thanks for your lovely comment this morning, Naomi! Love your art submissions!

Thank you so much for your message, Naomi! I love your smudged series from the Domino challenge. You are so talented!
oh wow! thank you Naomi! that is a lovely thing to say. i really appreciate it.
Thanks for the vote of confidence Naomi!! I was second guessing myself a lot on whether they are too simple - but I figured it's worth putting it out there and seeing how they do!
Thank you so much Naomi. I was really excited for this challenge and felt like I was a bit more in my comfort zone with my interiors background.
Ok, just spent some time on your site. Where do I begin!? Chair Bones! Wow, amazing, I love that. Five kids!?!? Where, oh where, do you find the time? Your home sounds lovely, a dream home for me. I will check out Mozimag today too. Beautiful work Mrs Ernest. Swoon : )
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? :)
Thank you, Naomi! I was really excited by the fabric challenge. Wish I'd had time for more entries. Love your watercolor gem art prints!
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.
Thanks for the nice note, Naomi. I appreciate it!
Thank you so much Naomi! I really appreciate it. Good luck to you as well. Your work is highly nuanced and lovely.

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 :)
Hi Naomi, thanks v. much for your input on my Queen Bee - I whited out the background pattern at your suggestion and also went for pink - slightly darker than my original -much happier with it now :)
Naomi, thanks so much for pointing that out yesterday. I really appreciate it. And even more so that you changed your comment. That really touched me. I really appreciate that. :)
thank you for your lovely comments :)
