About Moe and Me

After I graduated college with an associates degree in graphic design for print and web I happened upon stationery design by chance through minted. It has been three years since I designed and sold my first piece of stationery and I have not looked back.

Hi Samantha, Just wanted to stop by and say thank you for your wonderful help with my Fir Branches wreath. I still need to make some minor tweaks but I'm much happier with it now after making it horizontal. :) I really love your work and look forward to seeing more if it!

Thanks so much Samantha!! Your compliments means a lot to me, and I want to thank you for what you said in the Rifle paper post. I wanted to write something, but you and a few others said it best! I'm so thankful to have great Minties like you in my corner ; ) Best wishes as you get ready for the NSS. I know your booth will look fabulous and I hope your business flourishes as a result : ) We'll be cheering you and Meg on!

Thanks for your comments on my Farm Fresh Fun design. Always helps to have another pair of eyes check things out. I made the changes and think it works much better.

Hi again, Thank you for your response; Ive been thinking about you and just wanted to apologize. As my husband can attest, I say the first thing that comes to mind without considering how it will come across. You have a great design and I dont think you need to change a thing. If there is a way for you to remove my other comment please do and I will format a better, clearer comment ;)

I'm sorry I love your design; I didn't mean to offend you; I've just had that other one in my mind and the layout and text were similar.

I love all of your designs. You have such a natural gift of coordinating colors, and balancing images with text. I would love to know where I can purchase some of these?

jean on Oct 25 2010

Hi Sam. The more you can put out there, the more chances some designs will be similar to others. Just remember that colors reflect seasons and the law of thirds for image cropping and placement.

Hi Samantha. I like your sweet flower linen but it reminding me of this design already for sale - http://www.minted.com/customizer/sku/MIN-SL1-INV. I would just change up the colors a bit. =D
