Hi Ashley, I recently saw one of your baby shower invites in Pregancy and Newborn Magazine at my OB's office, I grabbed the copy and wanted to send it to you if you forward me your address...it's jennifer@24thandDune.com

Hey Ashley! I'm just going through and voting for the Valentine's Day Challenge. Your designs are fantastic and I just had to stop in and say hi. I too, am trying to grow as a designer and know how much it means when you get good feedback from others (artists especially). Gotta love the Minted community. Keep doing what you're doing!

Hi Ashley! Thanks for your encouragement on my calendar design. I'm a big fan of the Family Chronicles and Geometric Order. I'm not sure if you saw, but I'm in Moscow now. I'm teaching English and designing. Northfield still feels close to home, even if thousands of miles away :).

Hi Ashley, thanks for the comments on the holiday infographics card. I totally changed it and had it ready but didn't upload it in time ... I didn't want you to think I ignored your comment. I put those dots at the top at the last-minute and was on the fence about them, so i really appreciate you taking the time to give your input (especially with all entries!!)

Ashley, Thanks again for your help! I went with Cecily (which I think is pretty similar to Bickham Script)and like it better than any others I tried. Check it out when you get a chance. :)

I was shopping this AM in Tuesday Morning and saw a cute children's book with a lion on the front cover and it made me think of you. Your Roaring Good Time Lion or some version of it would rock it in the current challenge. Like....Be Majestic or something like that.

Hey, Ashley! I'm second-guessing suggesting the portrait for your Double Cupcake Fun card - I really liked the size of the names in the original. I'm sorry my suggestion wasted so much of your time...I'm having a bad design week. Good luck with it what ever you do - those cupcakes and the banner are so great! You, on the other hand, are having a great design week - love all your entries!

Many thanks for catching my template issue. I deleted it and resubmitted just to get it back up there. Taking your suggestions back to the drawing board. I can't thank you enough. Keep your fingers crossed I can work it out. I love your work...one of my favorite's is Roaring Good Time. Just love it!!!
