After years of trying to figure out what I wanted to do I've come back to something I truly love, designing stationery. I am getting excited about design again! Love being surrounded by amazing talent from all over the world.

Hey Smeeta! Thank you so much for the info about my birthday fox invitation. Since I've kind of been in what seems like hiding since my baby came arrived August, I don't have the card available anywhere at the moment. But, please feel free to have them contact me directly by email at firstname.lastname@example.org, if they are interested. I will also try and get it posted in my Etsy shop in the next few months. https://www.etsy.com/shop/PaperNestbyLesa?ref=si_shop
thank you Smeeta! x
You're so sweet, Smeeta! Thanks for the note. Yes, whether you win or lose, it's definitely humbling to look through the entries and see what greatness didn't get picked. I can't wait to hear what you come up with (for your business name)! :)
Hi, Smeeta! Thanks so much for your feedback on my Home for the Holidays design http://www.minted.com/design-rating/90793 I really appreciate it! I think the string and bow are just what it needed. Thanks, again!
Thank you Smeeta, for thinking of me during the birthday challenge! Sadly, I have run out of time these days, but have a few ideas I hope to contribute next time! Keep up the great work as always!
Thank you for your sweet message Smeeta. Love your designs and wishing you all the best for the challenge too!
Thanks Smeeta, I love your design style and think you will do really well in this challenge :)
No! All they did was make me smile, Smeeta! Thanks so much for your support x

Thank you so much Smeeta for the great & wonderrful comment. God bless you always!

Smeeta, thank you so much for the beautiful Deepavali card! I loved all the little gorgeous details! Hope you had a Happy Deepavali, too! Hopefully, I'll get to meet you one day at one of the meet-ups. Take care, and have a great weekend! :)
Thank you so much for your congratulatory note, Smeeta - you are so sweet! I'm so excited I got one. Tough challenge. I hope you get a design into the Save the Date challenge - I think you could repurpose the "love" and banner from your A Love Affair design. Good luck!
Thank you so much for the lovely card! Such a wonderful surprise :) Love your return address! A Happy Diwali to you as well.
Thank you so much for your lovely card! It was so exciting to find it in my mail :) Hope you had a happy Diwali!
thanks smeeta for the sweet note.. :)... I have always worked as textile/fabric designer..and i am really glad that i found minted..because its a great place to learn and meet other talented designers..
Thanks for the nice comment, Smeeta! It made me smile! :)
Thank you so much for the sweet comment on For Eloise. It made mt day!
Hi Smeeta! Just wanted to make sure you got my email recently (after I posted on the forum about my interest in wholesale). No need to respond to my email... just didn't want you to think I ignored your offer :). Monica
Thanks, Smeeta! I'm not so sure I do "know what works best!" :) And I don't always like what will win or be popular, so I REALLY appreciate the feedback!! :) Thanks, again!
Oh...I did add an imperfect brush outline to the "&" to tie it in with the gilted edges. Hopefully that makes a difference! Thanks, again!
Hi, Smeeta! Thanks so much for your comment on my "Gilty" design. I really appreciate it! Before submitting, I had tried several delicate and script type ampersands, but, in the end, decided that the simpler, chunky type fit my vision for this design better. I reconsidered after receiving your comment, and, while you may be onto something more popular, I really dig that plain, chunky &! Hopefully, someone else out there likes it, too. :) Thanks so much! I can't wait to see what you submit!
thanks for your help as always. I messed with it a little, but im not sure its there yet. It did start out as a vertical layout, but i kind of liked the horizontal layout.. Take a look;)
Smeeta, thank you for the nice comment you gave me on Dachshund Puppy.
Thanks so much for the kind words, I really do appreciate it. Made my day. :)
Awe! So, sweet! (Aussie, Aussie, Aussie! Oui, Oui, Oui!)
Hi Smeeta, Thank you for your comment on my reindeer games design.. I just spent atleast 2 hours fussing over it and still can not figure out what to do with it!!! I agree that it would be nice to have some more contrast with the heaviness of the wisdom script but just can not seem to make it work! Any thoughts on the slight changes that I attached in the comments section? thank you : )
Hi, Smeeta! Thanks for your super nice comment on my Skull and Crossware design. I tried really hard to come up with something funny (because of your nice facebook comment), and had all but given up when that one came to me...
Hi Smeeta, Thank you so much for the very sweet note! It made me laugh out loud... of course I never get bothered by likes!! They make my day :). Monica
Awww..thank you for being so encouraging, Smeeta! i'm having fun and thats the important part;)
Hi Smeeta. You sent me a message months ago and I've only just figured out this is how you reply! Sorry a bit slow :) Love your designs and it is great to have another Aussie on board.
Thanks for your comment, I really appreciate it and welcome the encouragement!
Thanks for the lovely comment!! your so sweet!!
Hi Smeeta! i've missed seeing you around lately;) thanks for your encouraging comments as always!
Thanks so much for the comment on my card Ms. Smeeta. I appreciate it very much. You're very good at what you do. I love all your designs! :) Keep it up!
Oh thank you Smeeta! I think my mom instincts kicked in and I felt that I needed to stop it before any more damage was done : ( On a happier note, I wish I could go to your Australia meet up!! My mom and aunt went to Australia last year for 10 days and they could not stop talking about how amazing and diverse the country is. I hope I can go there one day, but until then, enjoy your beautiful country!! : ) And thanks again for reassuring me that I did the right thing : )
Thanks Smeeta. I know I have been MIA. So busy with work. I miss minted :( Hope to be back soon.
Why thank you! How kind! I'm def. a fan of the golden books--esp. Poky puppy :)
Smeeta - you are so sweet! Thanks for your note - made my day! Something Old Something New is so cool - I hope they correct it for you real soon. Wish you lots of sales this coming wedding season! :)
Thank you for all your sweet comments!! So glad you still like the pearls idea. I'm sure this wont be the last time i sneak some into a design;)
Hi Smeeta.. Thank you for your sweet comment on my "frappuccino " notecard design.. I was thinking that the illustration might turned out to be a little childish, but I'm glad you liked it.. Thx again.. ;)
Smeeta, I agree with your concerns. One thing I would also point out is they flip-flopped Kevin + Juliana on the top left but not the initials on the bottom right.
Thanks for the advice! I understood what you guys were saying, you'll for sure shake your head at my revisions, because i had about 30 minutes at work to fix it, and the crappy part is apparently my office has taken away privledges for installing new fonts.. Terrible, i know! I just wish i had asked for advice earlier.
Thank you soo much for your comment! I can't tell you how much it means to me. You have made my year! :) ps - I absolutely love your 'Love' invitation - it's perfect!
i think i can send you the link..not sure it will work, but what the heck.. http://pinterest.com/pin/213498838554854684/
Pinterest sucks you in at first to see all the things other people 'pin' to their pinboards, but after a while it really just becomes a place to pin inspiring things and images from websites or things you want or love or you can even scan images you want to save.. its a great idea.. but i find it to be slow as molasses.. i think too many people have been sucked in.
Hey there! i was just roaming around Pinterest at stationary designs and i recognized your beautiful winning design pinned to someones board. I was all proud that i recognized it;) and then i scrolled down a little further and i found someone had pinned one of my save the date submissions.. what a warm and fuzzy (yet truly odd) feeling! just thought i would share;)
Smeeta... Thanks again for all of your help on the Superhero Bash. It was a last minute edit that may have saved the day. Could not have done it without you!!! xxoo
Thanks for your comment on Sail Along with Us birthday invite. I appreciate it!
N = No (see what I mean?)
Goodness! N need for apologies regarding spelling...if I had a nickel for every typo I have had on Minted, I'd be wealthy!!! Really. Until you mentioned treatment in your note, I had forgotten about that - I hope you are doing well and have no more worries. Thanks, again, for your comments!
Thank you for the advice on my princess card. I have played around wth it a little bit and made it a little more girly and lightened it up a bit. I am a little annoyed becaseu the contrasting font does not show up on the website like it does in illustrator. 'happy birthday' and 'princess michelle' should contrast each other in matilde and matilda sketch.. so one is lighter thaqn the other.. oh well.. may i should try something else..
is "desdline" like "loe?" Minted really needs spellcheck! :-)
Thanks for the helpful feedback on Look Out - I really appreciate it! I'm probably not going to have time to modify it before the desdline, so I will probably just delete it because I'm thinking it's not there, yet, also. If I do make any changes, I'll let you know! :-)
You crack me up!! Thanks for all of your help!! I'm taking it back to the drawing board. Fingers are so crossed I can find that magic something to get this one to the next level!!!
Thank you so much for your help! I have been thinking about your comments and how to improve my design all week. I have been working on a different design as well so I will get back to Rockstar soon;) I cant tell you how much I appreciate your help and advice. You are so totally right, I can make pretty pictures all day, but the true art is being able to marry the type into the design. Thank you, thank you, thank you!
Thanks you for your comment on my invitation. I added a background-texture and it looks so much better now!
A big hello to you!! You are seriously making my day. I can't thank you enough for the comments and suggestions on my Superhero Bash invite. I incorporated the suggestions and hope, hope, hope I worked it out. Hope you are well and many thanks again!!!
Smeeta...you are the best. Thanks for the comments on my Chevron Heart. The crickets have been chirping these days in terms of comments so it means more to me then you know. Hope you are well... I am truly digging your A Bright Sunny Day. It is just that!!! Yum!!
