Thanks so much for your sweet note on winter wishes Sarah. I feel like I've been really struggling, so I really appreciate it :)
thanks Sarah :) I've been well but miss participating in submissions :/ Just too busy with family/friends weddings. Love all the designs you've created along the way!
Hi, Sarah! I've updated the colors on my "Love in the New Year" design - thank you for your comment. If you have a chance to take a look, please let me know if the new color combo is better. Also, what do you think about the size of "Wishing you love in the new year?" THANKS!!!

Hey Sarah! would you mind taking a look at my hugs and kisses design.. i cant decide it i like the white outline or i should nix it. i attached a photo in the comments. i feel like maybe its missing something, but i tend to go overboard;) thanks so much for your input!! http://www.minted.com/design-rating/82546
Sarah, I made the changes, thank you so much...Chris
Sarah, I don't know what to say....i am so appreciative of your mentorship. All your advice has been spot on. I changed to the navy and it looks so cool. Thank you so much! Chris

thanks Sarah, you made my day just now.
Hi Sarah - thanks so much for the suggestion on my submission! Great notes. I just returned from vacation, but I'll be working on implementing changes today. Maybe the gingham would be a cute backer option.... Thanks, again!
Thanks for the tip Sarah. It's subtle but if you look hard I think it's better?
Sarah, the design looks great! So glad I could help.
Hi Sarah - thanks for the note! I like that Ukelele :)
Thank you, you're so sweet, Sarah! Right back at ya -- I'm particularly loving your "beholden" design. Wishing you all the best in this challenge :)
Thanks back at ya, Sarah! :)
Way to go on your 2 wins. Loved them both.
Congrats on both your holiday party picks Sarah!! Love "Cheers to You". Looks like being single and no kids is starting to pay off for us, right?! :) Thank you for your note.
and I love your new profile pic!
Thanks so much for your congratulatory note, Sarah!!! Congrats on your two picks, as well - happy to see that Toasted got some love! :)
I'm so late to respond, it has taken me awhile to get back to everyone, but want you to know how appreciative I was of your note! I am such a BIG fan of your work Sarah and you are always so encouraging and supportive of my submissions. I was so so happy to see Merry Modern get a special award, it was one of my absolute favorites. It just has something really special about it and the award was so well deserved. I am wishing you lots of luck in the wedding challenge and all that is to come! You are a talent ;)
hi sarah, I was away this weekend, but just made the changes you suggested to beach haven from Friday. check it out when you get a chance and thanks again for taking the time to comment!! http://www.minted.com/design-rating/71394
Congrats on the xmas card special award Sarah. I enjoy your work and especially liked that card.
Hi Sarah, thank you so much for all your comments on my wedding submissions! I can't tell you how those little nudges really helped move the designs forward. I had been on the verge of scrapping the beach haven design since I posted it [it was my first one], but with your help, I feel like it feels so much more cohesive. If you get a chance stop back and see what you think. congrats on your special award, too! you must be over the moon!!
Thank you Sarah! Congrats on your special Award too!!!
Sarah! Congrats on your special award. You must have been thrilled this morning to wake up to the email with your design at the top. I was super excited for you!! :)
Congrats on your Special Vision Award Sarah! Well deserved!
Congrats on your "vision award" Sarah!! Very well deserved :)
Hi Sarah, Went a little darker again... let me know what you think please! :) Thanks!
Hi Sarah, Thanks so much for your feedback on my delicate blooms design. I changes the background to white (and reduced the size of the flower clusters too). Would love yor opinion when you have a minute. Thanks :).
I pinned that dress image this morning! Stripes on the brain, I suppose. How funny!
Thanks Sarah! I really didn't want to go the record route, although I think it's a cute idea for another design, so I decided a seal would be better. Thanks for the input! For some reasons my separators weren't coming through either, so I fixed those. Best of luck in this challenge! ;-)
Hi Sarah! I'm planning on attending the SF mintie meet up next month and just saw you are going to be there... can't wait to meet you! :) Monica
Hi Sarah! Thanks so much for the great comment.
Hi Sarah. Thanks so much for your feedback on my Pocahonas design. That's so funny it reminds you of a pipe and smoke (so not what I intended), but it definitely is interesting to see it from a different perspective. I agree with you about maybe adding a "hello" to the speech bubble. If you had time to check out the revised version, I would greatly appreciate it. Thanks!!
Hey Sarah...i really appreciate your feedback..you are so talented ..and it feels really great that you liked my work :)...looking for ur support in future too :)
Sarah - thank you so much for your help with my designs in this challenge. I appreciate the time you take to go back to the designs and check out the updates as well. Really love your Let's Get Toasted - that totally cracked me up! and your Cheers to You is so cute! Best of luck to you!! :o)
Hi Sarah! Thank you for helping me with the typography on my "Three Sheets" design. I'm not the best when it comes to typography, so I really appreciate the tips. You're a really talented designer! Thanks again! :)
Thank you for your sweet note Sarah (that I just now saw since I don't get the emails, ha!) I take it as such a compliment and it means a lot. Your holiday designs are fabulous, I really love "merry modern!"
Hi Sarah ! Thank you so much for your kind an awesome support ! You too Congrats on your fabulous pick ! Well deserved !
Thank you Sarah for your kind comments. Your designs are awesome and I always look forward to seeing them - Cheers!!
Sarah, thank you so much for your comment on paws! You're a fabulous designer, so your comments really meant a lot to me! I love all of your work, and I can't wait to see all your awesome holiday designs. I know they'll be beautiful!! Thanks again - you're so sweet!! :)
don't underestimate your ability to illustrate, Sarah! Your images always convey a wide range of emotions, just want you want to captivate an audience. Keep up the fine work!
and I forgot to say, pardon my manners...A Cordial Hello was one of my favs from the challenge! I love how you pushed it to perfection. Nice work!!
Thanks Sarah!! Same to you...I love your winning design :)
Thanks for the congrats, Sarah!
awe, thanks Sarah. You are too kind. You made my day. It can be a bit intimidating here in the minted universe so it's nice to get thoughtful comments from other very talented designers like yourself.
Oh no!!! I loved your Shake Rattle and Roll...it was so different! I hope you get to use it for something.
hi Sarah, that was very gracious of you to take down you design because it was close to Laura's. I feel really bad that you did that since it was so well-designed and liked. I hope you can use it again next time this challenge comes around. You have some beautiful entries in this challenge, my favorite is wild strawberries. good luck!
Hi Sarah -- thank you SO MUCH for you sweet comment on my designs for the baby shower challenge. It really means a lot to me. I also love your submissions -- especially "new blooms!"
Hi Sarah, I absolutely don't feel that you should remove your design on my account. This kind of thing is bound to happen when there are so many designs submitted. In fact, I just noticed another design has been uploaded with the same text. Perhaps this type of thing is just part of being a designer in a competition and it's best to have those voting decide.
I believe that Carol's was the first up, and I also think it's probably difficult for someone to ask that a later design be removed because you don't want to be perceived a certain way. So, if you feel your design should be removed, then perhaps, mine should, too.
Hi Sarah! I've been tied up with family in town and haven't had a chance to respond to Carol or your comments about using the same concept. I'm not sure whose design was up first. What is appropriate to do here? You two have been doing this for longer than I have. Should they all be left up or just the first one? This can't be the first time this has happened, so I'm wondering if there is a precedence or how you think this should be handled. I've also written to Carol. Thanks!
Hi Sarah! Thx for your comment on full of joy. I went back and forth on putting the flowers in front or behind... i've been looking at it too long. If you have time, could you take a look and see what you think :) http://www.minted.com/design-rating/52715
Hi Sarah! Thank you SOOO much for taking the time to critique my design and giving me such great feedback on "to the 9s". I made the changes you suggested and I think it looks a lot better! Thanks again!!
Thanks for spotting the missing leaves Sarah. I had deleted them when cleaning up final submit. So much for "final."
hi sarah, thanks for you comment regarding shake, rattle and roll. I don't think it's necessary to take yours down -it's different than mine - and especially since everyone loves it and it will probably be the winner!
Haha, well whatever you're doing is working! Great work :)
Aww thx Sarah! Things have been a lil craaaazy over here—friends weddings, me helping them with invites, work, side work, you know the routine ;) Thought at least I could look at all the pretty designs on minted! You have so many wonderful submissions, I can't keep track!
Thanks, Sarah. I just saw your Sofa Strips moving announcement. So charming!
I hear ya, Sarah - mine are the same way - it's a mystery! Enjoy your wins!
Congrats on your two runners-up in the Something Old Something New Special Awards - both great designs! And Congrats on your two latest picks, too! I'm surprised Monochrome Honeycomb didn't get a pick - I love that one, too!
Oh I see you have won 2 awards, nice!!!!
I love your designs! I'm very surprised you haven't won anything yet because they seem all perfect to me!
Thank you Sarah :) I wish you the best for the challenges ! Love the sofa stripes !
thanks back at ya for your sweet note, Sarah!
Yaaaaaay so glad your Wedding Cranes and Navy Stars & Stripes got picked! :) I especially love your Cranes invite :)
Congrats on being "Minted," Sarah! Your first two picks are great - love both Wedding Cranes and Navy Stars and Stripes!
Thank you so much Sarah. Can't wait to see more of your design!
Just loving your work Sarah!
Thank you Sarah for your comment. Love your work! Very clean and modern!
Thank you Sarah for your sweet comment and all your encouraging words! I really appreciate your help and I'm loving all your designs!!!
Hi Sarah! I meant to thank you for suggesting that I use my Tuscan Hills wedding invite artwork in the art challenge. I don't think I would have thought of it otherwise so many thanks!
Ohmigosh you're in my head! Haha. Thanks so much Sarah for your comment on Amelia Bearheart. I had the same thought and actually started revising after my last submission b/c it seems heavy on the right—so your comment helped substantiate my instinct :-P Thanks so much for your helpful feedback. As always I'm loving your designs! I just noticed your pretty New Year's Eve card—it's stunning!
Thanks Sarah for your wonderful comment! I love your designs so far, especially the Watermelon Hearts design. It's so fun! Keep up the great work, and best of luck to you in the save-the-date challenge. :)
Thank you for your kind comment, Sarah! I'm excited about the art challenge. Looking forward to seeing more of your submissions–you're off to a great start :)
Thank you so much, Sarah! :) I'm just looking at the designs you've submitted so far and as I type this and I love them all - great job and best of luck!
Thank you for the kind, thoughtful, helpful words, Sarah! Love your work and your generous spirit!
thanks again for the feedback Sarah! As you can see my confused self landed somewhere in the middle :-P
thanks so much Sarah for the compliment and feedback! I was debating on those tangerines, and thought it might have needed to be scaled back myself. Do you prefer the darker yellow as well? Trying to work out the kinks! Keep up the beautiful work - love what you've got going so far and appreciate all your comments :)
Wow, you haven't been here much longer than me and you're cranking out well executed designs like there's no tomorrow! How do you do it?! Hehe
Hi Sarah, thanks for your comments on Mediterranean Stucco, I appreciated it!
Thanks for your comment Sarah! And welcome to Minted! Please don't worry one bit about having a crane theme. I have unintentionally had the same theme as other designers many times–great minds think alike :)
Thanks, Melanie! I've been eyeballing the design challenges for a while but haven't taken the time to submit anything until now...I think it will be a fun creative outlet! I love your designs as well!
Hi Sarah! I just wanted to say that your first submissions are beautifully done - I predict you're going to do very well here - can't wait to see more of your work!!! :)
