Renee, thank you so much for sharing the news about "Quickpen" on the album cover (I definitely still say "album", or even "record", too!). I had no idea, so now every time I see it or think about it, I'm always going to remember you and Kim as the bearers of such great news! Thank you again- you rule.

Thanks for the sweet comment on my Kids Invitation entries ... as a girl from a small island in the Caribbean, it's unbelievable that I get to share my work with such talented Minties like yourself. I wouldn't even know where to start to market my work/designs on my own. There aren't alot of opportunities for stationery/greeting cards in my neck of the woods! :) But the first chance I get to put myself out there again ... part of the reason would be because of the support I get from you guys here at Minted! Thanks so much for always supporting me.

Hi Renee, thanks so much for your kind comment on my Sunny Holidays design! That was iffy, so I wasn't sure. I did start out with red in place of the blush and it felt heavy with the other colors, so I lightened it up. I could certainly start a poll with your suggestions though! Stay tuned and thanks again!

Thank you so much for your encouragement on my Indian Rush Hour illustration, Renee! And I'm so glad it gave me the opportunity to come back here and see all of your wonderful pieces for sale. You are quite the type mixing expert! (one of many talents that I see in your work) but the ease with which you are mixing and matching all these interesting typefaces is so inspiring since that's an area I'd love to grow in. That inspiration notebook is particularly stunning. Thanks again for brighting my day :)

Hi Renee, I am always so glad when you like one of my designs. The typography advice you gave me very early on, and how uncertain I was even when you gave it, still means so much to me. Your work is always so distinct and award winning. Thanks again.

Renee, I had so much fun sitting next to you at the meet-up the other eve. I had no idea you were Smudge Design! I had to e-mail Katy to figure out what co. name you design under. I just love your work! Your Music Notes notebook is just amazing. Also think you have one of the best religious Xmas cards on the site. Anyway, great to meet you, and will hopefully see u at next year's L.A. Meet-up.

Thank you Renee for your helpful comment. I adjusted the transparency on the flower image. It is smoother and softer and it isn't so dark. Best of luck in this challenge.

Hi Renee! I made some variations on "Headline Romance" based on your suggestions and I wondered if you'd be willing to take another look if you get a chance? Thanks so much!

Hi Renee! It has taken me a couple of weeks but I just wanted to say thank you for your note! Your work is really inspiring as it always seems so well thought out and you always seem to pull off the retro vibe and make it look entirely effortless and chic. I'm a fan! :)

Hey Renee, thanks for your feedback on Vintage mill. I took your advice and nudged the copy up a bit. If you have time would you mind taking a second look and let me know what you think, if it's enough or needs more. It's a very subtle change but I didn't want to center the entire thing, I was going for more of a rustic, hand stamped feel so perfectly centered would deter from that I think. Thanks again :)
