im so stooooooked for you! :)
thanks so much Kerry---your expertise is much-appreciated! Congrats again on the fantastic artwerk!
hi Kerry---just reaching out to a seasoned artist in the community. I am wondering how you scan your watercolor pieces in to get the beautiful resolution and clarity in your work. If you don't mind sharing your methods, I would be most appreciative!
Thank you so much Kerry, I am in shock! :)
Thanks for all of the kind/helpful comments, Kerry! I really appreciate it! :)
Great minds think alike!
Thanks, Kerry! You made my day!
I had to go look up 'penned'! It's lovely! I hadn't seen it before! Yes, there is the tilted polaroid-like photo and the kraft background, but they are also very different with their font choices, too. So many amazing choices in this competition- it looks like yours is very 'liked'- so hopefully that is a great sign for your design! xo
Hi Kerry - I just ordered your herringbone art print, looking forward to hanging it up! I don't think I have ever bought anything yellow before :)
Hi Kerry, Thanks so much for the helpful feedback on my submission, I really appreciate it!
Hi Kerry, thanks for the feedback! Good point - I moved the greeting on Simple Sprigs and also adjusted kerning around the dots. Thank you!

Hey Kerry, Just wanted to tell you I came across your blog last night while searching for some fonts... love it!! So cute and fun. So then of course I had to check out your website... very nice! :)
Unfortunately, I couldn't make it... next time, I hope!
Hey Kerry! I just wanted to drop you a note to tell you how excited I get when you "like" my designs because your work is so beautiful! Plus it's always nice to see someone else from the Bay Area =) - Madeline
Kerry, thanks for your comment. The flowers are a vector file.
Kerry, thanks so much for commenting on my reindeer games design.. I think that I prefer having the contrast of the quicksand as well but it did not feel quite balanced how it was.. I have added it to the main heading and think it is working better but would love your opinion. I am a huge fan of your work, your typography in particular always stands out to me. thanks so much!
Hey Kerry, I just wanted to stop by and let you know I am a huge fan of your work. Your designs are always at the top of my favs list :)
loving your new profile pic with those sassy glasses.
Thanks, I was thoughtfully contemplating my next cocktail! Love yours too!
Love your new profile photo... you look so CHIC!
LOOOVE your new profile pic, Kerry!!!! :)
Thanks! Not sure what you meant by cut out...around the photo?
Kerry, thanks for the kind words on my pirate design. And I think it's super cool that your daughter is having a pirate party!!!
Thanks Kerry! I keep joking that I don't really look like that most days - it's a best case scenario pic, haha ;)
I have to share that I love the new profile pic!!
Hi, Kerry! Just wanted to thank you for your holiday card - you have a beautiful family! I love the photo of your little one in the Darth Vader costume - we have a Santa Darth Vader bobblehead, so Vader is alway part of our Christmas! :) Happy 2012!
Hey there! I took your advice and made some alterations to my "Show of Hands" save the date design. I appreciate your eye a lot and would love if you could take a moment to advise the updates! Thx!!
Congratulations! I knew this was going to be a winner!
Thank you so much for your comment :0)
I was exploring minted and I must say I am a huge fan of your work! you have a beautiful collection of designs :)
Kerry - just in case you didn't already know this: you are TOTALLY ROCKING the wedding challenge!!! Seriously, I am in awe - beautiful work! :)
Kerry, thanks so much for your kind words and I meant to tell you congrats on having your design picked by Chronicle Books. Talk about wow! I hope to see them in a bookstore one day : )
hi there Kerry,
I meant to send you congrats about your chronicle winning entry - I was so glad as yours was one of my personal favorites! Just wanted also to thank you for your nice comment about one of my designs and let you know that you were the first person I followed on pinterest - before the thread on it here and I loved all of your choices. You have amazing taste and a lovely design sense!
Congrats on being one of the Chronicle picks! your winning design was one of my top favorites of the challenge!
Congratulations on your Chronicle win!
Thanks Kerry, and congrats to you!! Pretty Poppies was one of my top picks!
hey lady. congrats yourself, on the chronicle books challenge. woohoo! x emily
thx so much for your comment on all the stops -- it means so much, we really appreciate it! :)
Thanks for your comment on my Merry Retro Christmas Card! Your designs are awesome! Thanks for noticing mine amidst the other 2251! ;)
Hehe - I'm just sitting here lol at your "leaky brain" comment - may have to use that one as it's very fitting here too! Once all of these deadlines are out of the way we should chat sometime :)
Thank you so much for your comment - I'm amazed by what a helpful and welcoming group of people there are here :) I wanted to officially say "hi" since I feel like we sort of know each other but have never really met! I'm a big fan or your work - you've got some gorgeous designs on here! How are you doing with the "other" deadline? ;)
Congratulations on your best Easter win... BTW love your new profile photo... you look beautiful :D
Congrats Kerry on your best Easter win!
I noticed that too... and I like the way you think :)
Hi Kerry, I was just checking out your website & blog and wanted to drop by to let you know that you are such an inspiration! Keep it the fabulous work!
Kerry, thank you so much for your comment. It means a lot to me. I love your web site and blog! You do such beautiful work. All the best. Jana
Hi Kerry, no worries :) I will try out black and off-white tonight. Thanks for your suggestion!
Hi Kerry - re: my other half: not sure if you meant to tone the colors down or make them more vibrant. i tried toning them down a bit. i was fussing over the colors last night, i think i wound up looking at it too long! also, love your wedding challenge entries :)
Hey Kerry! No, you didn't make me worry at all!! I was just wondering if this was a minted only issue. You do make a good point though about that border being SO thin. I'm gonna have to think about that one....
Now you have me curious! I haven't had problems with borders printing as long as there is a bleed. Is this just an issue with MInted?
Hi Kerry! Thanks so much for the feedback. Do you know about what size is typical for a border that minted can print?
Hi Kerry! Thank you for your kind words. I am a huge fan of your work... you have a unique style and your designs are always beautiful. Please don't feel weird about your heart design... I can't wait to see it... I'm sure it's gorgeous. I know what you mean about feeling uneasy when you share the same design elements as someone else... but it's impossible... and chances are they rarely look alike. Good luck in the challenge :)
Thank you so much for you comment! I absolutely love your designs. I am new to the minted contest scene so it means a great deal to have some feedback! Thanks again.
Thank you so much for your comment. I've had a good time looking through all of your lovely designs!
Thank you for your comment - all of your designs are beautiful!
Kerry, thanks so much for your positive feedback! You have so many beautiful designs on minted!
Congratulations on your win! I thought you had 3 incredibly strong designs- great work as always!
Nice work. ranked your designs really high. Great job.
i am in love with your new logo, kerry! it's gorgeous!
thank you for your comment...i completely agree! do you happen to know if there is a way to add a drop shadow now? this is the first time i've entered anything on here (or anywhere!) thanks...
Thanks for the quick reply! I was really hoping it was a secret "looping" tool that I haven't discovered yet. lol Thanks though. Good luck in the challenge. :)
Hi there! Your designs are so sweet and they look like they must come natural to you. :) I really love "Smitten." The name says it all! If you don't mind me asking, I was wondering how you created the little yellow loops on Sweet Swirls. I've been trying to figure out if there's a tool in Illustrator or if that's a repeated symbol. It seems so simples but I'm stumped. lol No rush - just curious if you have time. Thanks!
you have very sweet designs...
Thank you so much for your comment on sweet summer, Kerry! I really appreciate it ;)
Hi Kerry! Thanks for your message. Wanted to let you know that I admire your work...you have a stellar style!
Thanks for your feedback, Kerry! I'll pay more attention to my typography next time. Your design style is lovely, by the way.
I love seeing your Spring Stripes wedding invite and all the variations for sale on Minted! It is such a cheerful and classy design. Congratulations! Also, thank you for your sweet comments about my recent entries!
Thanks to everyone who took the time to leave your kind words of praise! It means SO much! It has been such a thrill and honor...I'm happy to share the experience with you.
Congratulations on your Spring Stripes. How exciting!
WOW!!!! Congrats on your martha stewart mag win! That is fabulous, well deserved, you are a great designer.
Kerry, congratulations on being featured in Martha! Spring Stripes is really beautiful!
Congratulations Kerry! You must have been going crazy holding in such good news :o) I was just looking at your lovely website. I got my start as a painter too. Small world!
